Cayucas: Cayucas, the Los Angeles-based band known for their sunny, melodic surf rock and buoyant, rhythmic jams, know the value of a fresh start. After riding the wave that a pair of albums and half a decade in the indie rock spotlight brings, the group—the work of twin brothers Zach and Ben Yudin—found themselves facing an uncertain future after losing key parts of their infrastructure. Seizing upon the opportunity to make a change, they responded by injecting a new vibe into their bread and butter sound, resulting in no less than the album of their career. Cape Francis: Cape Francis is the solo project of Kevin Olken Henthorn. Kevin started playing guitar when he was 9 years old and studied music with teachers ranging from classical to blues to metal, but by the time he was 15 he decided to commit solely to writing his own material. After years of touring in another project, Henthorn started Cape Francis as a way to break form and reconnect to a natural flow of storytelling. Influenced by the likes of Bon Iver, Angel Olsen, and Elliot Smith, Henthorn pulls from raw emotion and finds ways to approach them with warmth and introspection. The Pressure Kids: Nashville-based indie rock band the pressure kids have been together long enough to see some shit. since forming as college freshmen in the fall of 2013, they’ve survived lineup changes, deceptive ex-managers, sexist industry advisors. seen each other through breakups, makeups, promotions, graduation dinners. through every up & down, every moment of triumph & turmoil that inevitably comes with the coming of age, Nick, Allan, Katy, Justin & Zach have always connected over their love of songs that make you feel something. melodies that score the moment you fall apart at the party, then piece yourself together on the drive home.
