Vundabar
There's somewhat of a paradox inherent in Vundabar's songwriting - a conflicting sense of nostalgia contrasted with the realization that they couldn't sound more current. The music they make feels like something that should have been heard a long time ago, while simultaneously continuing to forge ahead sonically. Vundabar's high energy live show is the stand out quality of this band and is an art they've undoubtedly perfected by touring non-stop around the country. Vundabar's shows never fail to be captivating, complete with infectious jams, guitar moves galore, intricate drum work, and humorous stage banter to top it all off, the band has become known for putting on an entertaining show.
Longface
Longface
The band is currently finishing its debut recording; a 5-song E.P. that chronicles the adult years of its central character, Longface. After leaving his home on the farm, Longface travels north in pursuit of his progressive ideals and the exciting unknown where he starts a band in the album opener, "Scalawag." After years of gigging and urban existence, Longface meets his muse and soon to be lover, Agnes Pachoulia Earheart, namesake of the album's second track "Pachoulia." The duo get pregnant, the life-changing nature of which causes Longface to begrudgingly quit his band and return to the farm that he spent so much time trying to escape. The third track, "Carpetbaggers," chronicles Longface and Pachoulia's return south, and expresses the emotional turmoil and existential mediocrity that begins to weigh all too heavily on Longface’s heart. Feeling trapped inside of his life, "The Pit of Never Ending" recounts the substance abuse and psychological malaise that brings him to his breaking point. In "Spring Bottom Belly," the album closer, Longface faces himself—a catalyzing experience relayed through his confrontation with a wooden bird inside of the cuckoo clock of his boyhood home.
