Hymn For Her
A juiced-up backwoods country blues duo with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described as ‘Hell’s Angels meets the Amish,’ Hymn for Her recorded their last album in their vintage 1961 Bambi Airstream trailer at locations stretching from Philadelphia to Malibu on a three-month tour. Their new release, Hymn for Her Presents … Lucy and Wayne’s Smokin Flames, boast a hot sauce under the same name which features bananas, jalapeños and smoked paprika. (RIYL: R.L. Burnside, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Bluegrass, Psychedelic)

Twin sisters Brooke and Brit Graeff (pronounced “grayf”) create powerful folk-charged indie pop that centers on Brooke’s dynamic & original vocals and upbeat acoustic chord progressions, which are ﬁnessed into creative and memorable pop songs by Brit’s melodic, classically inﬂuenced cello riffs. The group originated as a busking duo when the twins were 16, playing on street corners of Sarasota, FL and has a dedicated following in Vietnam. (RIYL: Tegan and Sara, Classical, Indie Rock, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen)
Like Jim James on a Native American vision quest, multi-instrumentalist frontman Mark Etherington (Mountain Holler, Set and Setting) leads Red Feather and their audience on a cinematic and unforgettable journey as they perform “music from the city about the beauty of the mind and country.” (RIYL: My Morning Jacket, Iron and Wine, Band of Horses)

Rebekah was raised on “pre-rockabilly” music in Alaska by her father, who performed with country greats such as Charlie Ryan (“Hot Rod Lincoln’). Rebekah now lives in St. Petersburg, and over the last 12 years has played everywhere from coffeeshops to festivals, has recorded 5 full-length CD’s that have permeated American and European airwaves, and garnered numerous awards and a place in the hearts of fans and critics across the nation. (RIYL: Lucinda Williams, Dusty Springfield, Neko Case)

Luxury Mane combines elements of indie, psychedelic, surf, garage rock and pop and boasts members of the multi-award-winning alt-rock outfit, The Semis. Luxury Mane takes a straight-ahead approach to rock arrangements and a purist approach to recording, having committed both of their full-length albums to 1/2-inch tape in their home studio in St. Petersburg, FL. (RIYL: The Smiths, Television, Joy Division)
