Shannon and the Clams

The Moon is in the Wrong Place Tour

w/ Tropa Magica

Hailing from Oakland, California, independent music mainstays, Shannon and the Clams, are known for their feel-good, vintage-infused, garage-psych sound. Their sonics go from black and white to technicolor on their forthcoming new album, The Moon Is In the Wrong Place, produced by longtime collaborator Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

Faced with the unimaginable sudden loss of singer-bassist Shannon Shaw’s fiancé, Joe Haener, in a car accident weeks leading up to their wedding, the project is a holistic exploration of grief and celebration of life coupled with the most expansive, exciting songs and arrangements of their celebrated catalog.

Shaw’s bandmates, guitarist Cody Blanchard, keyboard player Will Sprott, and drummer Nate Mahan, rallied behind her to create their most ambitious, emotionally searing work to date. The title is drawn from a conversation in which Haener, an astrology novice, attempted to ask if Mercury was in retrograde. This ominous precognitive statement became the basis for the record.

The Moon Is In the Wrong Place marks Shannon & The Clams’ 7th studio album together and showcases their 15+ years of tight-knit collaboration.

Join us at The Concert Hall in Toronto’s historic Masonic Temple for a fantastic evening of music!

Thee Sinseers & The Altons

Sinseerly Yours Tour

THEE SINSEERS
As one of the most popular groups on today’s So-Cal soul scene, Thee Sinseers need little introduction. Their performance of “Seems Like” live at the Recordium went viral to the tune of over a million views, making them thee in-demand group for souldies parties up and down the coast. We heard they even played one party where the crowd wouldn’t let them leave the stage before playing “Seems Like” for the third time. When asked what song they wanted to cut for their Penrose session, singer, songwriter, and man-who-can-play-any-instrument, Joey Quiñones didn’t hesitate to answer, “We need a proper recording of that song.” And so it was done. In the candle-lit studio, the band delivered unto us a starkly intimate rendition, stripping the tune down to its underthings, and laying bare Joe Q’s euphonious exhortations.

THE ALTONS

How would you characterize the sound of Southeast LA? The Altons, natives of the region,  combine dust kicked up from backyard parties with evening Art Laboe listening sessions, evoking a sound that veers far from the shadows.

The Altons curate a ballad of retro-indie-soul that has captivated local audiences for several years, quickly driving them to become a staple of the scene.

Their distinct sound caught the attention of Daptone Records Co-founder Gabe Roth, who was in the process of starting Penrose Records. Penrose became a subsidiary label to Daptone to highlight the emerging soul-scene growing in Southern California, where The Altons fit perfectly. Their Penrose debut “When You Go (That’s When You’ll Know)” was KCRW’s Today’s Top Tune, and their most recent single “Tangled Up In You” has been featured on “Soulection Radio.”

TD Toronto Jazz Festival Presents

Preservation Hall Jazz Band

At a moment when musical streams are crossing with unprecedented frequency, it’s crucial to remember that throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City’s inimitable spirit and joie de vivre. Nowhere is that idea more vividly embodied than in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history.
PHJB marches that tradition forward once again on So It Is, the septet’s second release featuring all-new original music. The album redefines what New Orleans music means today by tapping into a sonic continuum that stretches back to the city’s Afro-Cuban roots, through its common ancestry with the Afrobeat of Fela Kuti and the Fire Music of Pharoah Sanders and John Coltrane, and forward to cutting-edge artists with whom the PHJB have shared festival stages from Coachella to Newport, including legends like Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello and the Grateful Dead and modern giants like My Morning Jacket, Arcade Fire and the Black Keys.

Yussef Dayes

Yussef Dayes is a tour-de-force behind the drums. Widely recognised as one of the most electrifying live performers of his generation, watching the South London-raised producer, composer and drummer perform is an exhilarating combo of technical prowess, intensity and emotion – leaving audiences in no doubt as to the role of rhythm in channelling spiritual energy. 

Yussef grew up with three brothers in a home where musical experimentation was fully embraced. He was drumming by the age of four, tutored by Miles Davis’ drummer, Billy Cobham, aged ten, and quickly developed an ear for a wide range of musical styles: from the influence of East/West African rhythms and its journey through the Caribbean and South America, to the soundsystem-heavy impact of grime and jungle. That music, with its intertwining sonic language, are the building blocks of his philosophy around jazz as a form of black classical music. While still only in his pre-teens, he joined his two brothers - Ahmad and Kareem - and saxophonist, Wayne Francis (aka Ahnanse) in Afrocentric quartet, United Vibrations.

Dayes’ meteoric rise came via the short lived duo Yussef Kamaal, with keyboardist Kamaal Williams. Black Focus (2016, Brownswood Recordings) — the pair’s sole and critically acclaimed album — instantly became the blueprint for a generation of music lovers and makers embroiled in the multicultural inner city junglism of Brexit-era Britain.

In 2018, Yussef launched his own imprint Cashmere Thoughts Recordings and released a string of solo releases including the classic Love is The Message live at Abbey Road Studios, a collaboration with Alfa Mist, Mansur Brown and Rocco Palladino. In 2020, Yussef announced, What Kinda Music, a collaboration with Tom Misch via Blue Note Records. The latter turned heads at an all-new mainstream level, reaching Top 5 in the UK Album Charts, garnering a coveted Ivor Novello nomination, and a BPI Silver Sales award.

Since then, his list of collaborators has blossomed to include the finest talents across both music and fashion. Championed by the late polymath visionary and creative director Virgil Abloh, Yussef fronted multiple shows and multi-disciplinary collaborations between 2019 and 2022 including leading the curation of the soundtrack to the Men’s Spring-Summer 2021 show in Tokyo, the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, the Freeze art fair in London, events with Off-White and the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris.

As well as self-producing his own work, Yussef had remixed Pa Salieu’s, Frontline, and worked on Wizkid’s, Made In Lagos, album. He has also produced for R&B royalty in Kali Uchis (Blue) and Kehlani (Hate The Club). In 2022 he created a joint release with Soulection entitled, Live At Joshua Tree.

Now ready to share his debut solo studio LP, and in a new partnership between Warner Music / Brownswood Recordings and Cashmere Thoughts Recordings, it looks as though 2023 will see Dayes ready to take his uncompromising talent and vision to new audiences globally, unrestrained by previous conceptions about where instrumentalist artists, or indeed “jazz” can go.

Madison Cunningham

w/ Ken Yates

As its title suggests, Revealer, winner of the 2023 Grammy award for Best Folk Album, by Madison Cunningham, is full of confessions, intimations, and hard truths the Los Angeles singer-songwriter-guitarist might rather have kept to herself. It’s a warts-and-all self-portrait of a young artist who is full of doubt and uncertainty, yet bursting with exciting ideas about music and life, who has numerous Grammy nominations but still feels like she has far to go, who turns those misgivings into songs that are confident in their idiosyncrasies. It’s also a rumination on music as a vehicle for such revelations, what’s gained and what’s lost when you put words to your innermost feelings. “There’s a sense of conflict about revealing anything about yourself—not just what to reveal, but whether you should reveal anything at all,” she says. “When you have to vouch for yourself and present a true picture of who you are, that can get confusing very quickly. This record is a product of me trying to find myself and my interests again. I felt like somewhere along the way I had lost the big picture of my own life.”

The Crane Wives

The Crane Wives is an indie band that originated from Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2010. The band was formed by Emilee Petersmark (guitar/vocals) and Kate Pillsbury (guitar/vocals), who initially performed together to avoid waiting tables at a Chinese restaurant in Grandville, Michigan. Their music, characterized by three-part vocal harmonies and an eclectic mix of instruments, failed to resonate initially in their restaurant gigs. The lineup expanded later in 2010 with the inclusion of Dan Rickabus (percussion/vocals), Ben Zito (bass), and Tom Gunnel (banjo), enriching their sound and solidifying the band’s presence in the music scene.

Their distinct sound, blending upbeat, folk-influenced music with indie rock, quickly set them apart in Grand Rapids’ indie-dominated landscape. Their influences are diverse, spanning folk, blues, ska, punk, and heavy metal. The Crane Wives gained significant attention with their debut album, Safe Ship, Harbored, in 2011, backed by a successful Kickstarter campaign and a notable nod from Colin Meloy of the Decemberists.

The band continued to evolve and grow, releasing several more albums including, The Fool in Her Wedding Gown (2012), Coyote Stories (2015), and, Foxlore (2016), showcasing a progression in their sound with the addition of electric guitar and other instruments. Despite the departure of Tom Gunnels in 2015, they pressed on as a four-piece set, known for their high-energy performances and deep lyrical content that explores the shadow side of the human condition, mythology, and internal conflict, balanced with soulful harmonies akin to an “emotional support animal” of the modern era​ (Wikipedia)​​ (Last.fm)​.

Their discography is notable for its breadth, including both studio and live recordings that capture the essence of their energetic live shows and the emotional depth of their songwriting. The Crane Wives have not only made a mark with their music but also through their contributions to the Michigan music scene, garnering local awards and recognition for their albums and songs​ (Wikipedia)​.

The Crane Wives’ journey from performing in a restaurant to achieving national recognition exemplifies their dedication to their craft and the powerful connection they’ve forged with their audience through their unique sound and heartfelt lyrics.

Unwound

Unwound, a seminal post-hardcore band hailing from the Pacific Northwest, emerged as a compelling force in the early 1990s, melding the intensity of punk with experimental and noise rock elements. Formed in Olympia, Washington, in 1991, the trio consisted of Justin Trosper (vocals and guitar), Vern Rumsey (bass), and Brandt Sandeno (drums), with Sara Lund later replacing Sandeno to solidify the lineup. Their sound, characterized by angular guitar riffs, dissonant harmonies, and introspective lyrics, captured the angst and disillusionment of the era while pushing the boundaries of the post-hardcore genre.

Unwound‘s journey began in the shadows of the grunge movement, offering an alternative that was less commercial and more artistically inclined. Their debut album, Fake Train (1993), was released on the independent label Kill Rock Stars, marking the beginning of a prolific and influential career. Over the next decade, Unwound released a series of critically acclaimed albums, including, New Plastic Ideas (1994), The Future of What (1995), and their magnum opus, Leaves Turn Inside You (2001). These records showcased the band’s evolution from their punk roots to more complex and textured soundscapes.

Unwound‘s commitment to DIY ethics and their refusal to conform to mainstream expectations helped them maintain a loyal underground following. Despite never achieving the commercial success of their contemporaries, their impact on the post-hardcore scene and alternative music at large is undeniable. The band’s dissolution in 2002 left a legacy of innovation and integrity, influencing a new generation of musicians who sought to challenge the conventions of rock music. Unwound‘s discography remains a testament to their artistic vision and the enduring power of their music.

Whoever Allan Rayman is, he’s made a hell of a body of work so far. The Toronto based artist has delivered one head-scratching, hypnotic and heavenly project after another, including, Hotel Allan, Roadhouse 01, and the unforgettable, CHRISTIAN. Along the way, he generated over 250 million streams, sold out tours in Europe, USA and Canada, and shined at festivals, including Reading & Leeds, Bonnaroo, Rifflandia and Lollapalooza, and has collaborated with the likes of Jessie Reyez, Alex da Kid and James Vincent McMorrow. His forthcoming album, The All Allan Hour, is his most potent work to date. The album is a period piece set in 1994 centered around an aspiring artist named #1 and her obsession with America’s biggest radio star.
The All Allan Hour, even for those of us with short attention spans, is a masterful story setup, aided and abetted by the unique soundtrack of Allan Rayman. With this album, Allan has created an audio experience somewhere between an album and a book on tape.

MODO-LIVE, I am the Eggplant, Programme Presents

Crumb

w/ L’Rain, Discovery Zone

New York psych-pop band Crumb return with AMAMA, their most carefree and open-hearted album to date. A soundscape full of playful and patchwork experimentation — glitchy pitch-shifted vocals, cell phone recordings, nautical blips, sax mouthpiece solos, blasted drum samples, and piano strings dampened with Silly Putty — AMAMA continues to deepen the band’s hypnotic sound in a cohesive line back through 2021’s Ice Melt, 2019’s Jinx, and breakout EPs Locket and Crumb. Without a doubt, AMAMA is Crumb — singer and multi-instrumentalist Lila Ramani, keyboardist and saxophonist Bri Aronow, bassist Jesse Brotter, and drummer Jonathan Gilad — at their most animated.
Buoyed by Ramani’s songwriting, at turns poetically abstract and directly confessional, AMAMA culls the strange encounters from Crumb’s touring years, tracing the dizzying path of a group that’s been in movement for nearly a decade. “Crushxd” is an ecstatic requiem for a turtle flattened under the tires of a tour van; “(Alone in) Brussels” finds Ramani in forced isolation in a distant city. On “The Bug,” we’re at a pit stop in a seedy motel, where a critter’s bite leaves a nagging feeling: “It’s always on my mind / it’s just always on my mind,” Ramani repeats over a creeping groove as she wanders the place at night. On “Side by Side,” perhaps the most candid track on AMAMA, frenetic percussion and disorienting, layered synth envelop Ramani as she considers the personal sacrifices she’s made along the way.
Even as it explores transient stops and fraught encounters, AMAMA features some of Crumb’s most vulnerable, tender searches for organic connection. “Home is what I want and what I need,” Ramani sings on the clear-sighted opener, “From Outside a Window Sill”—which samples a police radio scan about a flock of geese crossing a bridge in Gowanus, Brooklyn, where Ramani grew up. The title track, “AMAMA,” is an upbeat and hopeful homage to Ramani’s grandmother, her namesake, who sings in Malayalam in the opening sample. The two voices, Lila’s and Leela’s, separated by language and place, intertwine as if on a spotty long-distance call in what is the most direct love song of Crumb’s repertoire. On the album’s closer, “XXX,” laden with distorted, industrial sounds, we finally find respite—a house shared between two lovers, a safe place. In the last moments, Ramani asks: “Isn’t this as good as it can get?”
AMAMA exists at the crossroads of psychedelia, pop, jazz, and rock, and cements Crumb as a band uniquely their own. Released independently on Crumb Records and produced alongside Johnscott Sanford and Jonathan Rado in Los Angeles, AMAMA is an incandescent statement about searching for solid ground, connection, and clarity in a life of nomadic upheaval.

The Lox

30th Anniversary Tour

The Lox, an iconic rap group hailing from Yonkers, New York, emerged in the early ‘90s, carving a distinctive niche within the hip-hop scene with their gritty lyrical content and authentic street narratives. Comprising Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch, the trio initially gained prominence under the mentorship of Mary J. Blige, which led to their signing with Bad Boy Records. Their debut album, Money, Power & Respect (1998), was a commercial success, bolstered by the hit title track, and solidified their presence in the rap industry.

Despite their initial success, The Lox became disillusioned with the glossy image imposed by Bad Boy and made a high-profile switch to Ruff Ryders Entertainment. This move marked a turning point, allowing them to express their raw and unfiltered street ethos more freely. Their sophomore album, We Are the Streets (2000), reflected this shift, earning critical acclaim for its hard-hitting lyrics and rugged beats.

Beyond their group projects, Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch have each enjoyed successful solo careers, releasing numerous albums that have been well received by fans and critics alike. However, their chemistry as The Lox remains unparalleled, leading to further collaborative projects, including, Filthy America… It’s Beautiful (2016), and, Living Off Xperience (2020), which showcased their evolution while staying true to their roots.

Renowned for their lyrical prowess, cohesive group dynamic, and contributions to the evolution of hardcore rap, The Lox have solidified their legacy as stalwarts of hip-hop, respected by peers and revered by fans across generations.

Amen Dunes

Amen Dunes is the musical project founded by American musician and singer-songwriter Damon McMahon. The project emerged quietly yet profoundly in the late 2000s, becoming known for its blend of folk, psychedelic rock, and lo-fi aesthetics. McMahon began his musical career in New York City, but the project truly took form after a soul-searching sojourn in China where he created the first Amen Dunes album, DIA, released in 2009. This debut set the tone for Amen Dunes’ introspective and often raw lyrical themes, matched with haunting melodies and minimalist arrangements.

Over the years, McMahon has been the core of Amen Dunes, with a revolving cast of musicians contributing to its evolving sound. The band’s work is marked by its experimental edge, emotional transparency, and a disregard for genre confines, inviting listeners into McMahon’s reflective musings.

The subsequent albums, like, Through Donkey Jaw, in 2011, and, Love, in 2014, saw Amen Dunes gaining critical acclaim, with McMahon’s songwriting becoming more intricate and his production more polished. The band’s fifth album, Freedom (2018), was a breakthrough, with tracks like, Miki Dora, and, Blue Rose, reflecting a more accessible sound that did not sacrifice the project’s distinctive ethereal and contemplative essence. This record expanded their fan base and brought a new level of recognition.

Amen Dunes’ music is characterized by a search for authenticity and an exploration of personal and universal themes. It’s a journey through McMahon’s life experiences, set against the backdrop of his moody, psych-inflected musical landscapes. With each release, Amen Dunes manages to reinvent itself while maintaining an intimate connection with its audience, solidifying McMahon’s status as a unique and influential voice in contemporary indie music.

Inspired by the growing interest in their past releases, they have garnered an exceptionally invested new fanbase – clamoring for more from bôa.

Here Come The Mummies

Road Trip Fall Tour

w/ The Toxhards

Here Come The Mummies is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian Mummies with a
one-track mind. Their "Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave" is sure to get you into them (and possibly vice versa).
Since their discovery, HCTM has been direct support for P-Funk, Al Green, Mavis Staples, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village; become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; appeared on That’s My Jam with Jimmy Fallon; played massive festivals like Summer Fest, Summer Camp, Common Ground, Musikfest, and Suwannee Hulaween; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America. Maybe that’s why the ladies (and some dudes) can’t stop losing their minds over these mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth.
Some say they were cursed after deflowering a great Pharaoh’s daughter. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM’s mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready! Here Come The Mummies.
