Gringo Star
Gringo Star are an Indie Garage Pop band from Atlanta, Georgia, founded by brothers Pete and Nicholas Furgiuele, and joined in 2016 by Josh Longino (featured on the new album) and Mario Colangelo. Their 5th album "Back to the City" is coming out Aug 24, 2018 via Nevado Music, an L.A. based label (Deap Valley, Eternal Summers, Yukon Blonde). The album was produced, written, recorded and mixed at Studio 234 in Atlanta by the brothers. Gringo Star are insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll. Shots pulsing from a vintage Leslie speaker, their guitars, keys and vocals create the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, doo-wop-indebted indie gems; psychedelic garage bangers, gritty R&B shuffles and spaghetti western weirdness. Taking cues from Santo & Johnny, The Stooges, Ritchie Valens, Marc Bolan, The Kinks, Sam Cooke, they’re all here, their electric ghosts reaching across time, tapping Gringo Star on the shoulder like the crossroads devil to Robert Johnson, bestowing secrets, passing torches
Tedo Stone
With a sound that has drawn comparisons to Alabama Shakes, Dinosaur Jr. and at times Neil Young, Tedo Stone’s live show is one not to miss. Tedo was born to play rock and roll. Growing up in a family with a musical father and where brothers handed down bass guitars to younger siblings like old sweatshirts, Stone was fronting a band and playing in motorcycle bars around his hometown of Covington, Georgia, when he was 12 years old. While hanging out in Athens, Georgia and playing with the endless array of talented young musicians there, Stone realized his songs were sounding different live, evolving with a mixture of wailing guitars and raw emotion. Tedo Stone's highly anticipated third full length studio album, Summer Sun, will be released in November 2017 on Laser Brains.
Chick Wallace
The up-and-coming salty girl pop/punk project, Chick Wallace, is bringing a new face and sound to the music scene in Atlanta. Flush with local talent, this four piece includes lead vocalist and rhythm guitar, Melanie, musical virtuoso and drummer Max, Glick on bass, and Josh playing lead guitar. They have recently released a hi-fi EP on Bandcamp, and their dynamic track listing features some unexpectedly thunderous tunes. Influenced by bands like Modest Mouse, this EP combines powerful vocals, similar to that of the Screaming Females, with fast-passed melodies that are reminiscent of Sonic Youth. Tracks like “Blue Like Jazz”, embrace vulnerable lyricism to complement heavy rhythms and cavernous bass—a trademark combination throughout most of the record. The single “Sweetheart” (their first single debut) spices things up a bit with bright, pop-ish chords set against some pretty dark-humored words. This song in particular is more of a fun and narrative style for the group. Bringing a variety of surfy-punk sounds to the table, Chick Wallace is breaking down genre barriers. This emotionally-rich album is incredibly progressive for surf rock, which is something we’re not seeing enough of in the Atlanta scene. Melanie writes fearlessly about the situations in life that we sometimes just can’t let go of, in the hopes that others will be able to recognize and relate. A lot of her influence is drawn from personal experience and the humor and beauty that can be found in each trial and tribulation of the past. So, what to expect in the upcoming year for Chick Wallace? Currently, the band is planning tour dates for 2018, and working on writing a full-length album.
