Wolf & Bear
Central Valley-based post hardcore outfit Wolf & Bear have been tearing up the scene since their debut single “Oil Cup” was released in 2015. That same year, the band encountered some member changes, yet trekked on and released their second single “Sight” in September of 2015. That single, in particular, elevated the band from a local stature into a more refined and mature band. At the beginning of 2016, the band announced that they had signed with Blue Swan Records. The subsequent split (Wolf & Bear X Adventurer) with label-mates Adventurer proved to increase their following and get them known on a national level. Having toured much of the west coast, the band set out to record a full length with Dryw Owens (A Lot Like Birds, Sianvar, From Indian Lakes ). That full length came to fruition in October 2017 with the release of their album Everything Is Going Grey. With a subsequent tour with Dance Gavin Dance, Polyphia , and Icarus The Owl , the band’s career has only just begun.
Based out of Orlando, Makari is a five-piece ambient-rock outfit signed to Invogue Records. Their latest release “Control”, produced by Andrew Wade, finds the band further refining their sound, and offers a glimpse into their debut LP. With dreamy and delicate guitar work, driving bass and drums, soaring and melodic lyric-driven vocals, Makari allows you to drift on a sonic-sea of delay and reverb just long enough before dropping you back into straight-forward, high-energy grooves.
