Illiterate light
Illiterate Light is an indie rock duo from Harrisonburg VA comprised of Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran. Gorman and Cochran have collaborated on different projects over the past six years - writing and touring with their previous band Money Cannot Be Eaten, managing a small organic farm in the Shenandoah Valley, organizing bicycle tours, among other things. Illiterate Light is their newest project and the culmination of previous work together. Washed-out guitar sounds, droning synth bass, tight vocal harmonies, spacious rock drumming. They write about paradox and the desire to go beyond modernist rationalism and postmodern nihilism.
The Trillions
The Trillions
Richmond, Virginia based The Trillions siphon sounds from their favorite high-intensity bands: some pop wizardry from The Strokes, big-and-loud drums from Led Zeppelin and The Who, a dose of bombastic shred and guitar feedback from Pinkerton-era Weezer, smears of vocal attitude from The Buzzcocks, all drizzled with some topical lyrics and harmonies à la The Beatles, The Zombies, or Dr. Dog. In 2013, they were named as one of Virginia's top 12 bands you should listen to now by Paste magazine. The band recently toured with J Roddy Walston and the Business. That tour included a sold out show at New York's famous Bowery Ballroom, as well as, sold out shows in Boston and Richmond. Since 2010, the band has also opened up for national touring acts such as The Head and The Heart, Girl Talk, Best Coast, Motion City Soundtrack, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Jukebox the Ghost, and many others.
