Seismic-Sound Featured Tracks: Fort Union,Shelby Earl,The Pass, Dirty Sidewalks and The Thoughts.
We certainly pride ourselves on trying to find some of the best new music there is to be heard in the Pacific Northwest, but sometimes we venture far from home. In this weeks “feature tracks” 4 out of 5 are from the PNW. We really hope you take a listen and enjoy the amazing talent here and elsewhere. If you know of a band that is obscure and deserves some recognition. Hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Track #1 Fort Union: Jace Kraus and Jake Rohr are the mind and matter behind this Seattle-based folk rock band, but not without the help of other talented musicians. They currently dusted off some home recordings and let the genius of Gary Mula brush up em up and make them even prettier at Columbia City Theater. I got my hands on their track Solstice Day. Check it out.
Track #2 Shelby Earl: This Seattle songstress has a new album out called Burn The Boats which was produced by JohnRoderick, and is nothing short of incredible. I picked one of my favorite songs off that album for you to hear, which is called Beloved.
Track #3 The Pass: I am not sure what has come out of Louisville, Kentucky in the past, but this band The Pass has an album out called Burst and I am obsessed with it. It’s an amazingly fun piece of dancey electric-synth from beginning to end. This album will get plenty of play this summer…they’re my new Passion Pit. This song is called Treatment of the sun.
Track #4 Dirty Sidewalks: Good chance you may not have heard of this band, but I don’t think this will be the case for long. You long for some good ole, straight up hooky rock? Well Seattle band Dirty Sidewalks is just that, and their new EP Glide is amazeballs! I can’t wait to see whats in store for this band. Check out the track Never wanted to be loved.
Track #5 The Thoughts: This Seattle band are by no means brand new, but there seems to be a buzz building about them nonetheless. The new album I Won’t Keep You here is chalk full of beautiful strings, gentle brushes of the guitar and vocals that tug on your heart. It’s a band that seismic-sound has on the radar, and we think the best is yet to come. Here is the track Orange Sky.
