ME & THIS ARMY

 

 

Genre: Pop/Alternative

Location: Baltimore, MD

 

 

Members: Courtney Hargrove, Nicholas Pollione, Jonathan Burrier;

 

Me and This Army started out in 2007 as the college indie pop project of Courtney Hargrove. Upon graduation—and desperate to hear her songs played by a full band— Courtney moved to her hometown of Baltimore, MD and recruited two talented musicians, Nicholas Pollione on bass and Jonathan Burrier playing drums. Together they have a chemistry that radiates into their energetic live show. Mixing gritty acoustic guitar pop riffs, vibrant bass lines, powerful heart-felt vocals, and explosive drumming, Me and This Army creates an impacting sound that will keep heads nodding for more. Me and This Army is set to release to release their debut EP entitled, Souls, in early 2011 , which was recorded with Mat Leffler-Schulman at Mobtown Studios.

NEW VILLAGER

 

Location: San Francisco Bay Area, New York

Genre: Electro-Pop

NewVillager (pronounced, like: “Terwilliger”), is a Clinton Hill, NY, USA trio, comprising: Ben Bromley, Ross Simonini and Collin Palmer. They débuted with the single “Rich Doors” (Jan 2009, Two Syllable) and their latest / début album is “NewVillager” (Jun 2011, IAmSound).

“… musical project of Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini, two multi-instrumentalists who remain friends. Goalball is a game designed for the blind, kind of like handball. A lot of good bands came out of the goalball scene back in ‘83, ‘85—the Sweetie Motions, the Sans Larrys—and NewVillager listened to all of them, mostly in Ross’s car, a Karmann Ghia he bought from Ben’s mom, against the wishes of Ben’s dad. They formed the band to carry that torch forward, and started out playing low-level Goalball tournaments, rigged games in bad neighborhoods, but Goalball is supposed to be played in total silence, because the ball has bells on it. They should have known; it was a tough time for the two of them, tougher than most. The thing is, they listened, they soaked it up, the sound of that ball and its bells, and then they went into the woods and wrote a record. Everything matters, is the point, even when you’re in the woods and your name implies isolated tribesmen and latter-day gay archetypes. It’s like George Steiner says: ‘Explorers’ postulates about totally isolated tribes, about corners of tropical forest or mountain innocent of any contact with the outside are largely spurious. Good shivery stuff for the glossy magazines. How word sped across the barbed lines of mutually incomprehensible tongues, how iron utensils from the distant fringe stations came to be found in the inmost of the Mato Grosso, was something of a riddle. But the facts were certain. News could tear like invisible fire through thicket and across cataracts. You had only to listen and it came humming back.’” – Philadelphia Herald-Times

Caroline Smith and The Good Night Sleeps

CAROLINE SMITH and THE GOOD NIGHT SLEEPS

 

Location: Minneapolis, MN

Genre: Folk / Indie / Pop

 

 


*Unfortunately the free downloads for this artist have expired. We will update if we come across new material available for download.

 

Since her arrival in Minneapolis during the fall of 2006 as an 18-year-old, singer/songwriter, Caroline Smith has become a celebrated part of the Midwest artist community.

Her career began as a solo artist with a residency at Minneapolis’ 400 Bar, a once reputable venue pivotal in shaping the careers of Elliot Smith, Conor Oberst, and local hero, Mason Jennings who less than a decade before began his own career with the same residency. Here she developed an independent sound which continues to be characterized by simple chord structures supporting sweet pop vocal melodies. Most recognizable in her music and the defining quality to her success is her alto singing voice quivering through vibrato, classic and controlled with the presence of Billy Holiday, Leslie Feist, and Joanna Newsom.

In 2007, Smith befriended drummer Arlen Peiffer (Cloud Cult), bassist Jesse Schuster, and multi-instrumentalist Colin Hacklander and the boys joined forces to support Caroline’s folk tunes as the Goodnight Sleeps.

In August of 2008, Caroline Smith and the Goodnight Sleeps released their debut full length, Backyard Tent Set, recorded at the Devil’s Workshop in Minneapolis with Chad Weiss (Mason Jennings, Ben Kweller). The prominent sound is of gentle folk instrumentation- acoustic guitar, banjo, piano, glockenspiel while Caroline’s singing floats above in innocent and playful imagery and catchy pop hooks. This independently released LP has made major waves online, on air, and on tour. 7 national tours and constant circuit through the Midwest has garnered a commited following of audiences around the US.

In 2010 in celebration of several years of successful touring, Caroline and Goodnight Sleeps bassist, Jesse Schuster recorded live duo arrangements rooted in folk tradition. The limited addition Live at the Cedar [Cultural Center] was met with enthusiastic acclaim from fans around the states, and within 6 months of its release the disc was completely sold out.

Most recently, Caroline Smith and company have completed tracking a new full length at the Terrarium in Minneapolis with Jason Orris (Polara, Happy Apple, Haley Bonar) and the songs are currently being mixed with Tom Herbers (Low, Dark Dark Dark, Andrew Bird). The yet untitled full length expands upon Backyard Tent Set’s story-telling whimsy, but shifts its foundation from the simplicities of folk to greater nuances of musical arrangement and soundscape rooted in modern indie rock. Loyal to the heart of Smith’s sound, Caroline’s unforgettable and endearing pop melodies remain the proudest strength of the record.

The record will find itself in your CD player in mid August, 2011.
