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.

Allan Rayman

The All Allan Tour

w/ Michael Lemmo

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.

Yard Act

Where's My Utopia Tour

What do you do when everything you’ve ever wanted suddenly lands in your lap, but the questions still keep on coming?
Since first steering their golden Rover into swift public acclaim back in 2020, Leeds quartet Yard Act have become one of the great indie success stories of the decade so far. Along the way, they’ve ticked off milestones ranging from a Number Two chart placing and Mercury Prize nomination for debut album, The Overload, to a co-sign from Elton John who joined the band to guest on a string-laden reworking of album closer ‘100% Endurance’.
Yet, whilst the band’s trajectory continuously shot upwards, vocalist James Smith and his wife had also welcomed in a son. And it’s this duelling sense of responsibility and ambition, guilt, love, drive and everything in between that forms the narrative backbone of brilliantly exploratory second album, Where’s My Utopia?
Written in snapshots of time between a relentless touring schedule, and produced jointly by the band and Gorillaz’ Remi Kabaka Jr, the quartet’s second act is a giant leap forward into broad and playful new sonic waters. “The main reason that ‘post-punk’ was the vehicle for Album One was because it was really affordable to do, but we always liked so much other music and this time we’ve had the confidence to embrace it,” James explains. Across the record, influences ranging from Fela Kuti to Ennio Moricone via Spiller’s ‘00s pop smash ‘Groovejet’ make themselves known.
It’s a celebratory palette upon which Smith allowed himself to reach lyrically deeper into himself than ever. Gone, largely, are the outward-facing character studies of yore, replaced with a set of songs that stare fully into the headlights of life, wrangling with the frontman’s own fears and foibles to create a sort of Promethean narrative - but with jokes. “You can commit to the idea that we’re just animals who eat and fuck and then we die, and that’s fine,” he suggests. “But for me, creativity always seems to be the best way of articulating the absolute minefield of what human existence is.”

JD McPherson

Night Owls Tour 2024

w/ Kate Clover

Over the past 12 years, JD McPherson has carved out a unique musical path, releasing four studio albums and two EPs that blend foundational rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly, and R&B with his distinct songwriting style. Hailing from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, JD is deeply inspired by classic sounds yet approaches his music with a fresh, innovative twist. “I love those old styles, but I don’t treat my music like a museum piece. It’s more about mixing those rhythms and sounds and seeing what comes out,” he says.

This creative philosophy shines through in his latest album, Nite Owls. His fifth studio release features ten dynamic rock ‘n’ roll tracks that incorporate elements of glam, new wave, post-punk, and surf rock. JD connects these diverse influences seamlessly, noting, “The thread between Duane Eddy and Depeche Mode is that reverb-y guitar style. It felt natural to blend that with the classic stuff and a dash of surf.”

Nite Owls opens with “Sunshine Getaway,” a catchy glam rock track with a darker lyrical undercurrent. Collaborating with Jack and Page from the Cactus Blossoms, the song reflects on harsh winters and dreams of sunnier days. The album continues to showcase JD’s versatility with tracks like the r&b rave-up “I Can’t Go Anywhere With You” and the melancholic dream-pop of “Just Like Summer.”

JD’s storytelling prowess is evident in the title track’s vivid narratives and the Beach Boys-esque harmonies of “That’s What a Love Song Does to You.” He also collaborates with Ryan Lindsay of Broncho on “Shining Like Gold,” a breezy love song. Longtime fans will appreciate familiar elements in songs like “The Rock and Roll Girls” and “Baby Blues.”

Throughout Nite Owls, JD’s enthusiasm and passion for music are palpable. Reflecting on his journey, he shares, “I’m just trying to share an infectious enthusiasm. I want to enjoy myself and make the music I love, and I’m so grateful I get to do this for a living.”

Mdou Moctar

Funeral for Justice Tour

Funeral For Justice, is the new album by Mdou Moctar. Recorded at the close of two years spent touring the globe following the release of 2019 breakout, Afrique Victime, it captures the Nigerien quartet in ferocious form. The music is louder, faster, and more wild. The guitar solos are feedback-scorched and the lyrics are passionately political. Nothing is held back or toned down.
The songs on Funeral For Justice speak unflinchingly to the plight of Niger and of the Tuareg people. “This album is really different for me,” explains Moctar, the band’s singer, namesake, and indisputably iconic guitarist. “Now the problems of terrorist violence are more serious in Africa. When the US and Europe came here, they said they’re going to help us, but what we see is really different. They never help us to find a solution.”
“Mdou Moctar has been a strong anti-colonial band ever since I’ve been a part of it,” says producer and bassist Mikey Coltun, who has been playing with Moctar since 2017. “France came in, fucked up the country, then said ‘you’re free.’ And they’re not.” The song ‘Oh France’ tackles this head on: “France’s actions are frequently veiled in cruelty/We are better off without its turbulent relation/It’s high time we grasp the endless lethal games it plays.”
On the lead single and title track, Moctar addresses African leaders directly, bidding them: “Retake control of your resource rich countries/Build them and quit sleeping”. The song ‘Sousoume Tamacheq’ deals with the plight of the Tuareg people to which the band belong, and who are mainly spread across three countries: Niger, Mali and Algeria. “Oppressed in all three/In addition to lack of unity, ignorance is the third issue.” Another song, ‘Imouhar’, calls on the Tuareg to preserve their Tamasheq language - it’s at risk of dying out, and Mdou is one of the few in his community who knows how to write it. “People here are just using French,” laments Mdou. “They’re starting to forget their own language. We feel like in a hundred years no one will speak good Tamasheq, and that’s so scary for us.”
Mdou Moctar in its current iteration is first and foremost a band. Alongside Moctar, it consists of rhythm guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and American bassist and producer Mikey Coltun.
The band got their start performing at traditional weddings. These are high energy events – amps are dialed up to 11 and the whole town is invited to attend. “I grew up in the DC punk scene and this is no different,” explains Coltun. “It’s a DIY punk show: people bring generators, they crank their amps. Things are broken, but they make it work.”
Conveying that energy and feeling of community to a new audience has been an important goal for the band. Their first concerts in the US were sometimes, mistakenly, organized to be tame seated affairs. That’s no longer the case. Over 100s of shows, they’ve proven themselves as one of the world’s most vital rock bands – a group rooted in Tuareg tradition, but undeniably its own singular organism. An Mdou Moctar concert is now recognized to be a place for dancing, if not full-force moshing.
“Ilana was the gateway album, saying that this is a raw rock band. And Afrique Victime was a summation of that vision,” says Coltun, who captured the bulk of the recordings over five days in a mostly unfurnished house in upstate New York. “With Funeral For Justice, I really wanted this to shine with the political message because of everything that’s going on. As the band got tighter and heavier live, it made sense to capture this urgency and this aggression – it wasn’t a forced thing, it was very natural.”
In July 2023 – after Funeral For Justice had been completed – Niger’s democratically elected government was deposed in a military coup. The president was placed under house arrest and the nation plunged into a state of chaos and uncertainty. The French have withdrawn. The area continues to be threatened by terrorism. The band – then on tour in the US – was, for a time, unable to return to their families.
“I don’t support the coup,” explains Mdou, “but I never in my life liked France in my country. I don’t hate France or French people, I don’t hate American people either, but I don’t support their manipulative policies, what they do in Africa. In 2023 we want to be free, we need to smile, you understand?”

Ginger Root

Ginger Root’s SHINBANGUMI Tour

A multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter, and visual artist from Southern California, Cameron Lew has crafted his Ginger Root project steadily since 2017, inviting a fervent and growing legion of fans into storylines drawn across mediums: captivating albums with accompanying films and globe-spanning tours. The Ginger Root sound — handmade yet immaculately polished synth-pop, alt-disco, boogie, and soul — takes shape through Lew’s lens as an Asian-American growing up enamored by 1970s and ‘80s music, specifically the creative and cultural dialogue between Japanese City Pop and its Western counterparts from French Pop to Philly Soul to Ram-era McCartney. SHINBANGUMI, his long-awaited third LP, and Ghostly International debut set for physical release in 2024 with a visual album component, translates roughly to a new season of a show. It finds Lew more poised, idiosyncratic, and intentional than ever in a new chapter of life, unlocking “exactly what Ginger Root should sound and feel like,” he says. “In terms of instrumentation and musicality, it’s the first time that I felt very confident and comfortable with what everything should be comprised of. On the more personal side, I’m coming out of the last four years of writing, touring, and living as a different person; SHINBANGUMI is a platform to showcase my new self.”
Since his first release of “aggressive elevator soul” music and dispatch from his beloved weekly YouTube cover series during college, Lew has captained the ship of Ginger Root, able to write, record, and mix the music while creating the art and videos from scratch. What makes Ginger Root special is the project’s ability to weave influence beyond pastiche into a bigger picture, exploring that rarified pop pleasure center where referential meets refreshing.
In 2018, the project delivered its first album in collaboration with Acrophase Record, Mahjong Room, followed by several projects including the 2020 LP, Rikki. Between each move, Ginger Root has played alongside many modern Indie standouts, such as Khruangbin, Durand Jones, Omar Apollo, The Marias, and Hippo Campus.
With much of Rikki’s release feeling lost to the moments of that year, Lew decided to take a step back and try to write a succinct project to engage listeners for as long as possible. His redirected energy, paired with the newfound influence of Japanese art and culture from his experience learning to speak the language, yielded City Slicker in 2021. On the strength of breakout songs like “Juban District” and “Loretta,” the project connected with a massive audience on the internet, with his YouTube amassing 160,000 subscribers and his Spotify nearly hitting 1 million monthly listeners.
Ginger Root released the Nisemono EP in 2022 and has since played sold-out shows across North America, Europe, and Asia as fans await new music. In 2024, Ginger Root presents SHINBANGUMI across a sequential music video series, resuming the conceptual narrative from his 2022 EP Nisemono, which follows Ginger Root as a newly-fired music supervisor in 1987 starting his own media conglomerate, Ginger Root Productions. “If you watch music videos one through eight, you’ll be presented with a story that’s comparable to a traditional movie; something I’ve always wanted to do.”

Godspeed You! Black Emperor

On American High

Godspeed You! Black Emperor released a string of albums from 1997-2002 widely recognized as redefining what protest music can be, where longform instrumental chamber rock compositions of immense feeling and power serve as soundtracks to late capitalist alienation and resistance. The band’s first four releases—especially, F#A#∞ (1997), and, Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven (2000), are variously regarded as classics of the era and genre. Godspeed’s legendary live performances, featuring multiple 16mm projectors beaming a collage of overlapping analog film loops and reels—along with the distinctive iconography, imagery and tactility of the band’s album artwork and physical LP packages— further defines the sui generis aesthetic substance, ethos and mythos of this group. GY!BE has issued two official band photos in its 25-year existence and has done a half-dozen collectively-answered written interviews over that same span. The band has never had a website or social media accounts. It has never made a video. Few rock bands in our 21st century have been as steadfast in trying to let the work speak for itself and maintaining simple rules about minimizing participation in cultures of personality, exposure, access, commodification or co-optation.
Following a seven-year hiatus that began in 2003, Godspeed returned to the stage in December 2010 (curating the UK festival, All Tomorrow’s Parties) and the band’s post-reunion period has now lasted over a decade, marked by hundreds of sold-out live shows and three additional albums, all of which have been met with high acclaim.
G_d’s Pee AT STATE’S END!, the band’s fourth post-reunion album (and eighth overall), was released in April, 2021.

The Art of Letting Go 2025 US-Canada Tour

Fronting Alter Bridge, his soaring vocals, open-hearted lyrics, and airtight riffs have fueled the group’s global impact as a gold-certified, arena-filling force of nature over two decades-plus. On the microphone for Slash and The Conspirators, his towering range has consistently stunned audiences since 2010. Becoming a celebrated collaborator, he’s the rare presence just as comfortable on a track with Disturbed, Halestorm, and Sevendust as he is with Gov’t Mule and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. It’s why he’s generated over 1 billion cumulative streams, earned gold and platinum certifications worldwide, uplifted countless fans, and KERRANG! christened him “one of rock’s finest vocalists.” It’s also why he’s carved out his own lane. 2021 saw him deliver his acclaimed sophomore opus, The Ides of March. It impressively notched a total of four #1 debuts across three countries, toppling the Billboard US Top Current Hard Music Chart, the UK Official Rock & Metal Chart and Official Independent Album Chart, and Canada’s Hard Music Albums Chart. Beyond generating 10 million-plus streams, it incited unanimous critical applause from American Songwriter, Guitar.com, LoudWire, Guitar World, and more. RIFF hailed it as “a fantastic and must-listen record,” while Classic Rock Magazine awarded it “4.5-out-of-5 stars,” going on to attest, “The Ides of March confirms Myles Kennedy as a musical powerhouse.” With two solo efforts under his belt and sold out headline tours in the rearview, a sense of keenly honed intuition guides his third full-length LP, The Art of Letting Go [Napalm Records], led by the single “Say What You Will.”
