XURS
XURS
"When you’re old enough to have experienced the first wave of punk, you typically find yourself unimpressed by new versions of the genre in these here 2010s. However, Seattle quartet Xurs make this geezer grudgingly admit that da yoof of America still have some vital contributions to make to ye olde punk rock. Their self-titled 2016 album boasts stinging, venomous guitars that split the difference between A Frames and SST-era Sonic Youth and songs that zigzag with a spasmodic math-rock logic that deviates from the punk rule book. Add some acerbic lyrics you wouldn’t mind painting onto your leather jacket, and you have a fresh take on a musical style that was already going rotten by 1979." - Dave Segal
New Bloom
New Bloom
Pulling influences from hardcore, post-punk and The Carpenters, New Bloom is the love child of four misled youth that live their lives thrashing in the unknown. Coming practically out of nowhere and straight to your eardrums, they aim to engage those willing to listen in a cathartic satisfaction some have described as "... Pretty goddamn fun. Who are they again?" New Bloom invite friends and perfect strangers to blossom into their true and free selves in spite of all the depression and malaise this era brings us.
Meridian
Meridian
Meridian is a rock band formed in Seattle, WA (circa 2016) by Eric Eddelmann, James Warren, Andre Mendez and Mike Igano. Through the use of noisy yet melodic progressions, soaring blues leads, thumping bass grooves and well placed aggressive drums Meridian creates soundscapes that make any listener run the spectrum of human emotion.
