CRAIG SALT PETERS
"Songs For Hungry Ghosts" is easily one of the most widely anticipated indie pop records to come out of Seattle this year. Not only is this the first release to emerge from the Craig Salt Peters project in the 8 years since 2006's "Whooping Crane Dance", but the project's transformation into a flawless live band consisting of Craig, as well as Zach Burba (iji, Megabog), Jacob Jaffe (Love In Mind, Younger Shoulder), and John Broback (Hana And The Goose) -- essentially a who's who of our local DIY scene, has only made the possibility of a new full-length more exciting. At NGD, we fell hook, line, and sinker. - nogoddamndancing.blogspot.com
LA FONT (Los Angeles)
"LA Font is a rock band based in Echo Park. If you read about music, you are probably familiar with Echo Park as it has become famous as the neighborhood a mere 7 miles northeast of where the Notorious B.I.G. was gunned down. Unlike the late Biggie Smalls, LA Font records a brand of rock and roll that some have branded “independent” or, for short, “indie.” There are other bands in Echo Park that have followed suit and made a similar brand of “inde rock.” Perhaps you’re familiar with Neon Trees? I think they’re from Echo Park.
LA Font has reminded me at times of the Ponys, Silkworm (singer and songwriter Danny Bobbe spent time in Missoula, MT, no less), Built to Spill and others. That’s good company, but of course you’d expect nothing less from a blurb written by someone standing to make a buck on their behalf. I stand by it, though. Bobbe comes swinging, the guitars are chaotic, and the rhythm section keeps it all from derailing." - Paul Bost, Sister City Records
Shark? is a social utility that connects beer to your face and if you’re lucky maybe even a girl, but most likely a PA to your foot and fuzzy memories of midnight tacos. Shark? is also four dudes from Brooklyn.
