Trash Panda is a new and rapidly rising band from Atlanta, ga. After the successful release of their debut EP, Off, which charted their third single “Giuseppe” to number 2 on both Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts (making it just below the weeknd's "starboy"), it was evident Trash Panda had created something new and fresh. The Off EP came into being in the minds of Patrick Taylor and Mitch Standfield in summer of 2016 adding Max Hewett on soon after to complete the trio. The band is known for their DIY attitude and their insistence upon home-recording and their new LP is no exception. It was recorded in a house lovingly dubbed “the treehouse” just north of Atlanta, where the band exercises its belief in capturing good energy over technical perfection. Over a million plays on Spotify later, the band has finished recording a new record blending together psychedelic rock and indie, even soulful sensibilities with nonchalance and a rebellious spirit sometimes fusing punk and soul in an off alchemy of ferociousness and stoned malaise. Their live show at one moment can be aggressive and wild and transfuse to a calm, hip-shaking spacey groove.
"The Get Right Band are the type of performers that you just know will break out. Their songs are infectious and take you immediately to a very happy place. The lyrics are smart and bear weight."
-The Huffington Post
THE GET RIGHT BAND is “hip-shaking, earthquaking pure funk fun” (The Alternate Root). They are one of Relix Magazine’s “On The Verge” picks, Home Grown Music Network’s 2015 “Best New Band of the Year,” and were voted “Best Progressive Band” in Western North Carolina by Mountain Xpress readers. They have performed on the famed World Cafe, a nationally syndicated NPR show, and have brought their unique sound to major festivals and venues such as FloydFest, The Orange Peel, Music City Roots TV Show, The Green Parrot, Arlene’s Grocery, and Riverbend Fest. Combining catchy, clever, honest songwriting with musical expertise and fearless improvisation, the live show promises to move your head, heart, and hips.
“An ass shaking good time.”
Glass House Point is an indie-rock band hailing from the tropics of Central Florida: a place riddled with abundant sunshine and torrential rainfall. The band formed during the particularly stormy Summer of 2013 and has since crafted a sound that defies the expectations of East Coast music culture.
Ambient swells, soothings lulls, and massive bursts of lucid passion put Glass House Point’s music into a category of its own: a category that has yet to be explored by today’s indie artists. The band's 4-piece lineup is comprised of Dylan Graham (Vocals, Guitar), Ian Campbell (Bass, Keys), Jansen Valk (Drums), & Dylan Methot (Guitar). Collectively, they brandish their music with crisp harmonies, synths, and string ensembles. Overall the sound is sophisticated, yet untamed — a quite beautiful contradiction.
