Jupe Jupe creates dark and danceable pop music layered with crooning vocals, atmospheric synths, shivering guitars, and driving beats.
The Seattle quartet offers a collection of melancholy, hook-laden textures in its latest release, Lonely Creatures—10 hauntingly striking songs about isolation, fate, internal struggle, and technology gone awry. Each tune draws inspiration from electropop, post-punk, and ghostly Americana.
OCEANWIRES is charged, hopeful, possessed, and loud. Sonically inspired by the angular guitar works of Television and Savages, Dave Einmo (Head Like a Kite) and Aaron Starkey (Gibraltar) set out, along with Jeff Baars on drums (Mike Johnson, Long Dark Moon) and Samantha Wilder on bass (Princess), to create a full-length record exploring the paths between who they are, who they were, and who they will become. “THERE NEVER WAS A WAS” is produced and recorded by Steve Fisk (Car Seat Headrest, Nirvana, Naked Giants, The Wedding Present) and Matt Bayles (Minus the Bear, Mastodon.) and releases February 15, 2019. The debut single, “Beware the Heartless,” is out November 9, 2018.
Scarlemagne is none other than our local phenom Robin Kastles, keeping you movin til late. As he says of his music, "Teach a man to horse."
