Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires
Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires
Rock from Birmingham AL

The real Alabama rock-and-roll.

Lee Bains - guitar, vox, songs
Blake Williamson - drums, backup vox
Eric Wallace - guitar
Adam Williamson - bass

"Bains likes to rock. He and the Glory Fires wrap his commentaries, ruminations, and invective in what he calls “real Alabama rock ’n’ roll,” a raging burnpile of garage and Southern rock, dirty, supercharged blues and soul, Stonesy groove, Crazy Horse howl, and punk slam. With these songs, Bains surely wants to make you think; he surely will make you shake." - The Boston Globe
Bad Moves
Bad Moves
Melancholy Power-Pop-Punk from Washington, D.C

Formed in Washington, D.C. in the summer of 2015, Bad Moves is David Combs, Emma Cleveland, Katie Park, and Daoud Tyler-Ameen. Don Giovanni Records will released the band’s self-titled debut EP last November. It includes four songs recorded at Lurch, a studio run by Danny Saperstein (Flasher) and Owen Wuerker (Big Hush).
Combs, Park, and Tyler-Ameen each have a proven background writing melodic, punk-informed songs as members of Spoonboy, Hemlines, and Art Sorority For Girls respectively. Bad Moves was conceived as a way to stretch out a bit: to take a melody and break it down, to see if a hook might thrive in a different style or context. As a result, the music takes subtle inspiration from power-pop, new wave, and garage without being too on the nose. The songs are a little downcast, but not without a sense of humor -- and while the subject matter is rooted in the members' experience in D.C., the sentiments are often universal. Bad Moves summons a bit of cautious optimism in the face of wack day jobs, skyrocketing rent, and decaying expectations.
Nana Grizol
Nana Grizol
American Indie Folk Rock from Athens GA

Nana Grizol is an American indie folk band based in Athens, Georgia. In addition to frontman Theo Hilton (Defiance, Ohio), Nana Grizol features Laura Carter (Elf Power, Neutral Milk Hotel), Robbie Cucchiaro (The Music Tapes, Neutral Milk Hotel), Jared Gandy (Witches), drummer Matte Cathcart and Kate Mitchell, Ian Rickert, Patrick Jennings and Michael Schneeweis (Michael Jordan Touchdown Pass). Solo artist Madeline Adams also appears on Love It Love It.
"Ursa Minor, released in March of 2017, is the long-awaited follow up to Nana Grizol's second album, "Ruth," a potent mix of revved up melodic folk punk, laced with intricate horn arrangements and sleazy, ripping guitars. It alternates between contemplative, beautiful folk arrangements and blasting rock and roll, often within the same song."-Orange Twin
