Teen Agers
Ever curious what would occur if you combined multiple quarter-life crises, a penchant for bottom-tier booze in plastic bottles and a Flanders-sized repertoire of puns in a punk rock powder keg? Erupting like a sonic Cthulhu from beneath the Florida swamps comes Teen Agers, the brainchild of four gentlemen with enough functioning neurons to constitute one able-bodied adult. After decades of combined experience from playing in bands such as Go Rydell, How Dare You, Direct Effect, Rory, and Protagonist, in December of 2011 these grumpy old men joined forces. Originally with the intention of an excuse to hang out and drink beer together, it was quickly realized that what was being churned out was some of the most creative, rewarding, and damn catchy music of their lives. They brought their initial batch of ten compositions to the Moathouse in Gainesville, FL which were recorded by Roger Lima (Less Than Jake) and turned into their debut album, I Hate It, released by Anchorless Records. Since then band has done multiple east coast runs, two three week European tours, and has shared stage with the likes of Face to Face, Further Seems Forever, Less Than Jake, Lemuria, You Blew It!, and Timeshares. All while maintaining their old man day jobs. Seriously. Not one of them has gotten fired yet! In 2015, the band released a split 7” with Resolutions and and split full length album with Wolf-Face via Say-10 Records. In 2016 the Agers have a brand new self produced 10″ EP titled Young Gods via Smartpunk Records and an even newer EP they recorded with Tom May (Menzingers) and Andy Clarke (Luthor) to be released right around Fest. With plenty of melody to satisfy the crowd at your rad wine mixers and hearty helpings of riffage guaranteed to satiate your unmitigated adolescent angst, Teen Agers are the result of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object; just…a bit slower, so as to not pull something.
Reconciler is a band from Atlanta, GA with singer-songwriter roots and an unflinching punk rock delivery. For fans of Son Volt who own Leatherface records
The Pauses
The Pauses' (who prefer that their possessive noun-ing be spelled Pauseses) overall sound is one anchored in complexion and combination, a world where guitars are BFFs with synthesizers, horns, bells, and ukuleles. Tierney Tough's bright, fresh voice glides just as easily atop the breathy sparkle and agile math of "Go North" as it does the indie-pop sway and post-hardcore torque of "Beyond Bianca." From the serious, atmospheric mood of "The Migration" and "Pull the Pin" to the lithe, glitchy charm of "Hands Up". The Pauses got mad range, often in the same song. Rooted in the dynamics and ethos of '90s indie rock, their sound is a balancing act between rock and electronics, airiness and heft, suppleness and angularity. And their debut album, "A Cautionary Tale" (produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox and Burning Airlines) shows that you can explore without losing your core. Since the album's release, The Pauses have released a split 12", contributed a track to a Jason Noble Benefit Compilation, played multiple festival showcases, invented Interact-O-Vision (a live interactive media show component), had songs featured in Harmonix's Rock Band and multiple films (see: McSweeney's "The Love Competition", and have literally shared the stage (with members filling in as backup musicians) with War on Women, The Posies, Matt Pond PA, Davey Von Bohlen, Jonah Matranga, and John Vanderslice. The Pauses second full-length (also produced by J. Robbins) will be released in 2017.
Jeremy Ray
Those familiar with Atlanta artist and musician Jeremy Ray know that he is a livewire – an upbeat dude, quite literally bursting with energy at the seams. His solo acoustic live shows are typically indicative of that energy, frenetic and barn-burning. It may be a bit of a surprise then to find Jeremy’s latest EP The Last Take in a much more restrained, nuanced, and layered territory; this is a side of Jeremy’s music that is most comfortable in the studio, or at home alone, and as such these songs are moody, textured, and absorbing. More than anything, these songs are really just uniquely Jeremy, and The Last Take is a gorgeous and welcome release to get lost in until Jeremy’s full-length arrives.
