Biography:
Austin-based Black Joe Lewis is a contemporary singer and guitarist with a bent toward vintage blues, soul, and R&B. Backed by his band the Honeybears, Lewis draws inspiration from such legendary “shouters” as Howlin’ Wolf, Wilson Pickett, and James Brown, as well as smoother crooners like Sam Cooke. Black Joe Lewis released his debut album on Weary in 2007. Around the same time, his appearance at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX, garnered increased fan and press support. In 2009, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears released Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is! on Lost Highway, produced by Spoon drummer Jim Eno. The band toured relentlessly over the next year before they reconvened at Austin’s Public Hi-Fi studio with Eno to record their even grittier follow-up, Scandalous. The set contained an appearance by the gospel group the Relatives on “You Been Lyin’.” Scandalous was released on Lost Highway in March of 2011. ~ Matt Collar

Biography:
Comprising vocalist James “Buddy” Nielsen, guitarists Dave Miller and Garrett Zablocki, bassist Michael Glita (former percussionist for Tokyo Rose), and drummer Dan Trapp, New Jersey outfit Senses Fail developed a slick amalgam of post-hardcore chuggery and emo heartbreak that recalled fellow New Jersey-based group Saves the Day. Formed in 2002 in Bergen County, Senses Fail quickly issued a debut EP and began gigging regularly while maintaining a thriving Internet presence.

Drive-Thru Records took notice and signed the group in late 2002. A revamped version of the From the Depths of Dreams EP appeared in April 2003; it featured improved sound, one new song, and an acoustic version of the track “Ground Folds.” A tour with the Used wrapped up the year in successful fashion, while From the Depths of Dreams cracked the Billboard 200 and helped poise Senses Fail for a commercial breakthrough. After more heavy touring and a bit of label drama, 2004’s Let It Enfold You — named after a Charles Bukowski poem — was released that September through Vagrant/Drive-Thru; a deluxe edition with bonus tracks arrived one year later. The band also contributed a cover of Suicidal Tendencies’ “Institutionalized” for 2005’s Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland video game soundtrack. Relentless touring persisted before the bandmates began work on their sophomore effort, which saw Senses Fail hitting the studio in May 2006 with producer Brian McTernan (Thrice, Cave In) and a new guitarist, Heath Saraceno (the former Midtown member wound up permanently replacing Miller, who’d previously left the group).

A main-stage spot on the American Warped Tour helped the revised band hone its chops, as did a stint with the Taste of Chaos tour in the U.K. Both appearances led up to the release of the explosive Still Searching, which deemphasized the band’s screaming vocals in favor of an energetic, emo-tinged sound. Bassist Mike Glita left the lineup one year later, and Hot Water Music’s Jason Black climbed aboard as a temporary replacement during the recording of Life Is Not a Waiting Room, which arrived in October 2008. The following year, guitarist Heath Saraceno announced he was leaving the band. He was replaced by Zack Roach, and shortly afterwards the band returned to the studio. In 2010, their fourth album, The Fire, was released on Vagrant. The group’s fifth studio long-player, the well-received Renacer, was the first Senses Fail album to not feature founding member Garrett Zablocki, and would be the last outing with longtime drummer Dan Trapp. In 2015 the band inked a deal with Pure Noise Records and released Pull the Thorns from Your Heart. ~ Johnny Loftus

Biography:
Jens Lekman, born and reared in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a songwriter, adventurer and retired bingo hall employee. Traveling our globe as a wide-open receptor of all it has to offer, Lekman repurposes for his own oeuvre the world’s great, lost pop hooks of past and present. He breathes into them his droll senses of humor, romance and melody and gives them newfound buoyancy. Since his 2004 trifecta of EPs (Maples Leaves, Rocky Dennis in Heaven, You Are the Light) and right on through his acclaimed 2007 full-length, Night Falls Over Kortedala and 2012′s touchingly personal I Know What Love Isn’t, Lekman has made hopeless romantics of us all. In a musical language that has roots in the work of Arthur Russell, The Magnetic Fields, Calvin Johnson and Modern Lovers, Lekman’s songs serve as a reminder to look closer at the world around us, to appreciate the beauty when it’s both in and out of context; at its most heartbreaking, its most loving, and its most absurd.

Biography:
Although they formed in 2011 in Melbourne, Australia, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard’s sense of unfettered sonic exploration makes them easy to mistake for a long-forgotten relic of the psych explosion of the ’60s. With a far-out sound that, at times, feels barely held together, the band evoke the eclectic rock experimentation of Frank Zappa’s early work with the Mothers of Invention as they follow their musical flights of fancy wherever they might go, and let the rest just fall into place on its own. In 2012, the band released 12 Bar Bruise, which they followed up just five months later with 2013’s Eyes Like the Sky, which the band somewhat enigmatically self-described as a “spaghetti western audio book.”

A third full-length, Float Along, Fill Your Lungs, was released in 2013 and was quickly followed by 2014’s Oddments and I’m in Your Mind Fuzz. Still working fast, they released an EP in early 2015. Titled Quarters, it featured four trippy songs that each timed out exactly as 10:10. Later that same year they released yet another album, Paper Mâché Dream Balloon. Now signed to ATO Records, their sound took a detour from expanded jams and fuzzy freakouts to tightly constructed, but still weird, pop songs played exclusively on acoustic instruments. The follow-up album, Nonagon Infinity, was recorded at Daptone Studios and featured some of the band’s heaviest, most forceful psych-rock to date. The 2016 release was recorded so that one track bleeds into the next, then jumps back to the beginning after the last song. They tout it as the “world’s first infinitely looping album.” ~ Gregory Heaney

Biography:
British hip-hop/punk act Sleaford Mods began in 2006 as the recording project of Nottingham vocalist and musician Jason Williamson. The initial seed of the band’s aggressive, no-nonsense, blue-collar sound was worked out by Williamson over the first couple of years both in the studio and at occasional gigs, where he would rap over prerecorded beats and samples. After relocating to London for a time, he returned to Nottingham, where he met Andrew Fearn, a veteran musician who was DJ’ing at the time. The two joined forces in 2010 with Fearn taking on most of the backing tracks, freeing up Williamson to further evolve as a vocalist and lyricist. Their first recorded collaboration was on the CD-R release Wank, which appeared in 2012. Their minimalist combination of either lo-fi drum machine beats or live drums, mixed with pounding bass guitar and Williamson’s ranting wordplay, set the tone that would define the band’s sound.

A prominent festival appearance led to their signing with the abstract punk label Harbinger Sound, which released Sleaford Mods’ 2013 album, Austerity Dogs, their first proper label release and first to receive widespread distribution. The album was critically well-received, and Sleaford Mods’ reputation and profile were raised significantly as they toured the U.K. and Europe. Their follow-up album, Divide and Exit, was released in April 2014. That October, the previously digital-only singles collection Chubbed Up was given a physical release with three bonus tracks. The following month the duo capped off a triumphant 2014 with the Tiswas EP, which expanded on the Divide and Exit cut with previously unreleased tracks. They also collaborated with the Prodigy on the track “Ibiza” and began work on a new album. Key Markets, which took its name from a grocery store in Williamson’s hometown of Grantham, was inspired by “the disorientation of modern existence” and arrived in July 2015. ~ Timothy Monger

Biography:
Tradition and innovation provide the interlocking roots of bluegrass and its descendents, a lively dance of elements skipping comfortably from ancient jigs to radio ditties to spacious experimentation. The Infamous Stringdusters joyously embody and carry forward the spirit of Bill Monroe, John Hartford, Earl Scruggs, David Bromberg and other originators in their skilled embrace of this music’s twin gravitational pulls, moving dexterously between homespun legacy and creative expansion, a band firmly grounded in what has come before as they grow strong into tomorrow.

Biography:
Tennis is comprised of couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. The Denver-based duo began writing music together as a way to document their time living at sea on a small forty year old sailboat. The result was their first release, Cape Dory which saw them quickly become one of the most alluring and blogged about bands of the new decade. Moore and Riley followed Cape Dory with Young and Old, which The New Yorker described as “winsome as it is ebullient,” and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart and #1 on CMJ Top 200, where it remained for three straight weeks. The album also debuted on Soundscan’s “New Artist Chart” at #1 remaining there for nine consecutive weeks.

In 2013 the Small Sound EP debuted on Communion Music, followed by thousands of miles on the road, and a support tour with sister super-group, Haim. In 2014, the duo released Ritual In Repeat. Produced by Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), Jim Eno (Spoon) and Richard Swift (The Shins), this full length showcases a band in full control of their sound and craft. With well over 12 million streams and multiple television spots, the album has been received with open arms by loyal fans as well as new. Now they are on tour again precipitating the release of new material.
