Liam Palmer of Grass House. Following several fantastic singles over the past two years their debut A Sun Full and Drowning is finally arriving 10/28 on Marshall Teller Records. Back at the end of 2011 I named Grass House Band to Watch in 2012 - it took a little longer than expected, but I am as stoked for this band now as I’ve ever been. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Check out “Spinning As We Turn” below, and keep these guys on your musical radar - they’re brilliant.
The Great American Desert’sfantastic Carson City dropped in 2012 on Yer Bird Records. There’s not much info on Oquoa as of yet, but what I do know is that it also has former members of Conduits and they’re already scheduled to be opening for Blitzen Trapper for multiple dates on their upcoming fall tour.
Rich Morel of Deathfix, also of Morel, Blowoff (with Bob Mould), and Bob Mould's touring band. Deathfix, his collaboration with Fugazi's Brendan Canty, released their self-titled debut earlier this year on Dischord Records. RECOMMENDED!
