Yellworc - Icolation

Yellworc
Icolation
Label: Metropolis Records

Dark and creepy gothic industrial perturbed by prickly electronic tantalizations of unforeseen atmospheres in a realm of unrequited synthetic love and hate. Icolaiton is the conceptual continuation of the infernal “Trinity- journey.”

Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band
Greatest Hips Volume II
Label: Self Released

YMBFBB’s live show captured here is saturated with shooting anthemic lyrics, crowd pleasing antics, mega grooves, a booty shakin’ brass section and an energetic audience. Six heady hard working musicians from Asheville, NC blow the doors off the joint through their elevated conflagration of musicianship and attendance participation. Find a sweet spot and ride out the jams man!

Yonder Mountain String Band
The Show
Label: Frog Pad Records

Sweet, clever, quaint, touching or zany this Colorado foursome continues to please by carrying on with their tradition of invigorating and infusing traditional bluegrass and stringed instrumentation with a swinging new rock n roll view. If you are lucky enough to have a chance, their live show will revitalize and renew as few do.

Label: Relapse Records

This release has all the trappings of being a landmark, breakthrough album. It debuted at #30 on Billboard’s top 200 and sold over 12,500 records in its first week, making it the highest debut in Relapse Records history. Baroness really show off their vocal prowess and musical composition skills, here. Each song is masterfully crafted to compliment their progressive hard and heavy rock innovations. Bravo!

You’re It
Label: Wookiefoot

These magical now age bards have just tagged you with a full spectrum barrage of musical medicine, hop scotching across genres with whimsy and delight. From reggae to bluegrass to jam to conscious hip hop to middle eastern melodies and the combination of all the above there is never a dull moment, especially when complimented by their ever uplifting, thought provoking and clever lyrics. I am excited to see these tribadellic warriors perform this landmark new material!

The Radiant Kind
Label: Yak Attack

Livetronica trios that pump out handsomely fresh bumps, funk and jazzy downtempo flips and slips are one of my fave things. Fling yourself onto the dance floor when this Portland crew swings through your town and their motivational beats spring from the speakers and into your hearts.
