Vacationer 8.10.18

From The Vault

Vacationer 8.10.18

Posted by on Aug 24, 2018

Philadelphia/Brooklyn based Vacationer make the kind of woozy synth pop that enters your head when your crush enters the room. There are elements of Beach House, Washed Out, and Toro y Moi drifting in their laidback soundscapes, with even some shared love for the obscure fuzzy samples that legendary producers/crate diggers like Madlib gift his listeners with.

Saccharine psychedelia and digital daydreams await you in their recently released 3rd LP, Mindset, and in their performance here in Studio 1A. Check it out below.

Josh Lovelace 8.9.18

Posted by on Aug 24, 2018

Pianist Josh Lovelace from the Grammy nominated Needtobreathe recently released his debut solo album, Young Folk, and its beginnings are as wholesome as one could imagine–the birth of his first child. The Knoxville native says he wanted to make a children’s record both kids and parents could enjoy together, and like any family, Young Folk moves between a variety of moods and styles. There are songs of encouragement, advice, and a sprinkling of playful tales to enjoy with your little ones.

See and hear Josh Lovelace’s performance in Studio 1A below.

T-Rextasy 8.21.18

T-Rextasy 8.21.18

Posted by on Aug 24, 2018

Sugarcoated vocals, catchy pop-punk grooves, and sarcastic swagger are how New York’s T-Rextasy (not to be confused with T.Rextasy, the cover band of Marc Brolan and crew’s glam rock) dress their music, but like Seattle’s Tacocat and Chastity Belt, the NY four-piece wield humor, wit, and pop music to address serious feminist themes. It’s scathing satire in a bubble gum wrapper that’ll have you laughing out loud before you furrow your brow at the all too true subtext of their lyrics.

Nonetheless, their live performances are just as fun as their sound, and if you missed their show at Cheer Up Charlie’s earlier this week you can check out their performance here in Studio 1A below!
