Wed, May 16 9:00 pm
Marmalakes: Marmalakes' debut album, "Please Don't Stop" arrives 5/11/2018 via Austin Town Hall Records. Marmalakes is the Austin, TX, group led by Chase Weinacht (guitar/songwriting) and Josh Halpern (drums/production), lifelong friends whose spirited intensity leaps from their recordings. Marmalakes released their debut EP in 2010, followed by well-received EP releases in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Please Don't Stop will be the band's debut full-length, and proves to be well worth the wait. The Inscape: The Inscape mixes influences of heavy psychedelia, Americana, and folk to create a sound that is familiar yet unique. Solar Twin: Solar Twin is the brainchild of Nashville based and Seattle born artist Shane Tutmarc. Listen closely and you may hear familiar elements from his previous projects Dolour and United State of Electronica. With Solar Twin this prolific artist has redefined the poetry of his songwriting, creating a worldly and eclectic aesthetic where beauty and darkness often trade punches from line to line. With the songwriting chops, he's developed over a decade as a solo artist. Solar Twin's first two singles introduced an idea of the scope of the sound Tutmarc is bringing to the table. Slow Motion (released in September 2016) combined R&B and hip-hop grooves, with baroque pop arrangements. Next, Black Sky Revisited (released in December 2016) felt more like a hard rock version of Daft Punk, with vocoder vocals, heavy guitars, and a Beatle-esque feel. The third single, The Big Sleep was penned specifically for the closing credits of a documentary that focuses on the heroin epidemic on Seattle's streets. The song marries Solar Twin's signature dreamy sound with lyrics of dependence and addiction, in a way that is universal to any listener.
