A Deer A Horse
From their roots in Brooklyn’s DIY scene, A Deer A Horse has grown into a relentless touring act over the years. The band has clocked in nearly 250 shows across the country since 2017.
ADAH is comprised of Rebecca Satellite (vocals/guitar) and Angela Phillips (bass/vocals), and Dylan Teggart (drums). Their debut EP, _Backswimmer_, drew praise from the AV Club, who noted the band’s unlikely marriage of doom metal dirges with vocal earworms.
In 2018, ADAH released singles “Cold Shoulder” and “Double Wide” in anticipation of their new EP, Everything Rots That Is Rotten. The EP aims to reflect upon the current socio-political moment, offering the possibility of catharsis in the midst of systemic corruption. Everything Rots That Is Rotten was recorded at Silver Cord Studio, home-base of French metal pioneers, Gojira, and will be released on Detroit’s Corpse Flower Records on June 21st.
James Mauri and The Black River Stones
James Mauri is back with his band... James Mauri 4 and their new album PHONOGRAPHIC is as catchy as it is moody. Heavy as it is fun and as rich as it is raw. James has established himself as a dynamic singer-songwriter whose deep musicality is matched by his commanding lyrics, as outlined in his debut EP (James Mauri FOUR, 2013). This time out things are a little edgier and more aggressive. Both lyrically and with the selection of songs. James has a catalogue reaching back through the years that producer Ray Bardani chooses from. With the addition of Rich Rivers on lead guitars and the decision to cut live in studio B at Glenwood Studios, the sound is gelled and heavy. Standout tracks include What Have You Become, Astronaut, Wherever You Are, Aberlin and Sparrow and the Crow. Jm4 performs regularly in and around the northeast and is looking forward to touring this summer in support of PHONOGRAPHIC.
Kid Sistr is a New York based all female indie rock group. The group takes influence from a wide range of artists and bands. Their influences include contemporary artists such as St. Vincent, Margaret Glaspy and Julia Michaels, as well as icons of the past like Talking Heads, The Police and Pretenders. Kid Sistr’s music is characterized by a willingness to get strange, silly, sad or soft in order to tell profound stories of femininity, power, ambition, heartbreak, sisterhood, sexuality and friendship.
The group’s music is also influenced by each member’s individual taste and ability. Kid Sistr is made up of Sabel, 22 (vocals and guitar), Sara Keden, 22 (vocals and electric bass), and Rebecca Webster, 18 (drums). Sara and Sabel are both graduates of University of Miami’s Frost School of Music. Sabel has gained over 150k plays on her solo music, as well as gained standing as a well known performing artist in the greater New York area. Sara has toured nationally and internationally as an electric bass player since the age of 14; her latest work is as a touring bassist and backup vocalist for Interscope artist Billy Raffoul. Rebecca boasts a similar touring background; additionally, in 2016, Rebecca won the Hit Like a Girl international drumming competition at the age of 16. Her win gained her a platform through which she had the opportunity to perform with Michael League of Snarky Puppy, members of The Allman Brothers Band, and members of Dead and Co.
Kid Sistr looks to enhance the typical live music experience with their charisma on stage as well as their ability to tap into their own and their audience’s emotions. So far, the group has played a number of shows in and around New York City at venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, and NYC Sofar Sounds. Kid Sistr has sold out three times at The Turning Point in Piermont, NY. The trio plans to release their debut EP in the coming year, and perform as much as possible. Come see the show!
