Inspired by minimalism, melody and groove-heavy percussion, bandmates Michael Ford, Jr. and Ben Ford launched the group in 2016, one year after their previous project, The Apache Relay, quietly called it quits. The Apache Relay had been a large band, staffed with six members and armed with a thick, wall-of-sound approach. With Airpark, the Ford brothers sharpen their focus and scale back their arrangements, focusing on songs that pack a punch with bold, basic ingredients.
It's a sound that targets the feet and the head. It's pop music for thinkers. It's dance music for wallflowers. And with the brothers pulling triple-duty as songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and co-producers, Early Works, Volume 1 — whose March 3, 2017 release arrives courtesy of the Fords' own label, Eugenia Hall Records — is their most forward-thinking project to date, pairing the band's growing ambition with musical chops to match.
Killing Kuddles is a folky punk band from Atlanta, GA. Listeners are sure to hear fast indie pop songs camouflaged by punk attitude and sprinkled with Americana spirit. Killing Kuddles started in 2010 as just Elwood Kuddles writing acoustic songs and has since evolved into a 3 piece band. They released “Waking Up Older” in the fall of 2011. “Odd Man Out” was released in March of 2013 and has received positive reviews from music blogs all over the country. Their song “Rock & Roll is Dead” has been featured on local Atlanta radio.
