Tweed
Tweed
Tweed inspires and excites with music fueled from high energy performance and improvisation. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of funk, rock and electronica. The band was formed at University of Delaware and now calls Philadelphia its stomping ground. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging dance parties driven by their own incessant beat.
Deaf Scene
Deaf Scene
Deaf Scene is an experimental band based in Baltimore, Maryland. As an instrumental drum-bass-guitar trio, the band pulls off an incredibly vast range of sounds, pushing the sonic boundaries of each instrument and effect that they use. In their four year existence, the band has cultivated a unique musical style, influenced by everything from The Beatles to Bassnectar and beyond; yet their music still defies any sort of traditional "jam-band", "post-rock", or "electronic" categorization. Onstage, Deaf Scene's raw energy and eerie psychedelia draw you into their one-of-a-kind live performance. Lush guitar melodies, ethereal loops, intricate bass harmonies, and propulsive drum rhythms are the cornerstones of Deaf Scene's music, both live and in the studio. In 2010, the band self-released their debut EP, a cohesive movement of music that showcases the powerful potential of Deaf Scene's brand of loop-infused rock experimentation. With plans for releasing more music and touring extensively in 2012, Deaf Scene is truly proving to be, "One of Maryland's best up-and-coming acts" -explodinginsound.com
Disco Risque
Disco Risque
From the depths of rock n’ roll, funk and dance music Hell comes Disco Risqué. Formed in early 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia, guitarist Charlie Murchie, drummer Robert Prescott and bassist John Bruner have spent their time together taking pieces of their souls, personalities and life experiences and manifesting them into notes and lyrics with one goal: To take over the world one sweaty, borderline psychotic music lover at a time. Since adding vocalist and trumpet player, Ryan Calonder, in early 2015 their music has taken on a warmth and soulful body that completes the sound they set out to achieve and a viciously captivating element to their live performances.
In the Fall of 2015 Disco Risqué released their debut self-titled double album recorded at The Sound Recording Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. This ambitious release marks a milestone for the band and is, “The most important album to come out of Virginia in decades,” according to band manager Steve Lanza. The record pulls from influences all over the musical spectrum ranging from heavy metal riffs to espionage surfer tunes, catchy lyrical hooks, funky breaks and everything in-between.
