Thee More Shallows

Likened to a diverse host of bands, including Yo La Tengo, Grandaddy, Sparklehorse and GSYBE!, yet more than the sum of their influences TMS combine their trademark technicolor-blue vocal melodies with an extended range of sound collage. Toy pianos and french horns crash into strings and decay into orchestras warped and bent beyond recognition, while the voice of Dee Kesler provides a calm eye to the storm. A sort of sound buffet for you hungry audio geeks to feast your faces on.

Ral Partha Vogelbacher

First off, Ral Partha Vogelbacher is a band, not a person. Though the person who leads this merry band of pranksters is San Francisco's Chadwick Bidwell. So it's a band led by a person whose name is not Ral Partha Vogelbacher. Got it? Much like the Silver Jews, Jandek or maybe Elf Power, Ral Partha Vogelbacher make clever little fairy tale ballads about obscure events (real and imagined) that have the power to make you think. And to make you mad. And hopefully fill you with a sense of whimsical wonder about the hidden world you've somehow missed all these years.


Hey Little Cobra

 

A boy (Matt Woodward) on drums, and a girl (Kathy Gray) on organ. Simple. Expect a whole bag of fun in a similar vein to Deerhoof or Goblin..... but different.
