The Sherlocks
The Sherlocks
British indie/alternative band from Bolton upon Dearne, Barnsley, South Yorkshire. The band consists of two sets of brothers, Kiaran and Brandon Crook, Andy and Josh Davidson.
The Domestics
The Domestics
LITTLE DARKNESS was born at Flora Recording & Playback, the renowned Portland facility where Michael Finn works alongside studio owner/producer Tucker Martine. Having assisted and engineered more than 35 albums with Martine – including works by The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, and Neko Case – this time Finn found himself on the other side of the glass with songwriter and bandmate Leo London tirelessly pushing their band in ambitious new directions. The Domestics spent a solid month at Flora building and developing LITTLE DARKNESS; 16-hour days, seven days a week, in which the duo took full advantage of the studio’s limitless possibilities in pursuit of something truly unique and powerful. Indeed, songs like “Love That Dress” and “Going Down The Wrong Way” add remarkable new shades to The Domestics’ frank and inventive musical approach. The two tunesmiths set the intimate songs amidst immersive and exhilarating arrangements, amplifying their personal potency. Traditional instrumentation was wed throughout the process with wide ranging sonic ambition; found sounds, creative tape loops, and waves of harmonic distortion. The result is both idiosyncratic and indelible, rich with ingenious originality, broken-hearted lyricism, and riveting creative passion.

The Domestics and their self-titled debut album arrived in 2015 and earned instant applause from a range of high profile media outlets. SPIN named the band one of “Five Artists To Watch,” praising THE DOMESTICS’ “gritty guitars, lo-fi drums, and breezy unison melodies,” declaring the eponymous album to be “a heart-on-its sleeve affair, loaded with wistful tunes steeped in the tradition of the great American rock song.” “The Domestics are not entering the indie scene quietly,” noted Paste. “Rather, (they are) starting out with a strong, loud and joyful sound.” “Demurely charming,” raved The Nerdist. “You can easily glean the authenticity of the group’s emotional earnestness.”

Hailed for their eclectic and energetic live shows, The Domestics will celebrate LITTLE DARKNESS with a winter west coast tour, set to get underway December 2nd at Los Angeles’ Bootleg Theater. For details and ticket information, please visit www.the-domestics.com/tour.
The Breaking
The Breaking
Alternative rock revivalists The Breaking stepped straight out of 1995. Mining the rich soundscape of mid-90s guitar pop, Adam Sweeney and Tim Karplus draw inspiration from bands like Failure, R.E.M., Soundgarden and early Radiohead, where brooding introspection gives way to anthemic choruses and infectious electric guitar hooks.
