The Orwells
The Orwells
For The Orwells, Remember When will be an introduction of sorts-the 12-track rat-race shows the band’s repertoire of pranging riffs and sneering, snot-nosed vocals. The tracks are a walloping war-cry from a generation that up until this point has only offered bubblegum pop-the animus of The Orwells. It’s quite clear early on the in listening to the LP that the band is well aware of the past, the homage rings through the record, using the ghost of punk’s past as their musical sprit guide. However, the band straddles the thing line between their influences and their originality, ripping riffs and smashing drums in a fashion that their age into being just another fact mentioned in their bio.
The Orwells are made up of five 17-year-olds from Chicago, Illinois. They play rock n roll music. Their names are Mario, Grant, Henry, Dominick and Matt. They write songs - scratch that, primitive teenage battle cries - about girls and America and being suspended from high school. Although one might categorize The Orwells’ distinct brand of the blues as garage or punk, they would be wrong. The Orwells sound comes from a deeper, different place-a place both long forgotten and also timeless.
The Kingston Springs
The Kingston Springs
From the depths of the backwoods of Middle Tennessee, along a railroad stop where
the likes of Jessie James came to wind down, comes a band from the dried hot springs
of a classic town. The Kingston Springs are four young men with nothing to win, nothing
to lose, and some damn good music. Their taste influenced by too many and too little to
stick to one solid sound, other than that of their own. If not skatin', fishin', or sippin' Colt 45
(with some OJ for a poor boy mimosa), they're hitting the streets looking for good times.
With their heavy blues, folk, rocky top surf rock they travel all over this country known
far and wide as the United States of America sharing stories, melodies, and some good
times. Having played together for a few years, these boys have tackled festivals ranging
from Lollapalooza, to ACL, to the streets of Austin for South By Southwest.
Their debut release, The Vacation Time EP, in 2010 has garnered attention from multiple
media outlets from coast to coast. For the band's upcoming full-length debut, a self-titled
album due out in the fall of 2012, the guys stay true to their roots and record the whole
thing straight to tape for one more unique, throwback edge. What the future holds for
these boys is unclear, as with anything in this ever-changing world, however, one thing is
for sure: The Kingston Springs genuine sound will speak for itself.
