Darren Jessee

For someone as soft-spoken as North Carolina-based songwriter Darren Jessee, it might come as a surprise to learn that he has a gold record (in storage somewhere), a platinum record ("I never called them to get it"), and was part of a recent Grammy win ("someone told me they would mail me a certificate if I wanted…"). For years, though, he's managed that almost impossible feat of remaining both ubiquitous and out of the spotlight at once.

 

Since 2006, he's released four records under the name Hotel Lights, all while working as a drummer for a series of wildly acclaimed acts. He played drums for Sharon Van Etten in support of her celebrated 2014 release Are We There, and since 2016, he's been a member of the Durham-based band Hiss Golden Messenger, performing most recently on their 2017 Merge release Hallelujah Anyhow. In 2017 he contributed to The War on Drugs' A Deeper Understanding, which won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Before any of that, Jessee made his name as a member of the band Ben Folds Five, for which he co-wrote their biggest hit, "Brick."

 

"I always felt like I needed to have a band," Jessee says. "There's something about being with a group of people that gives you confidence. But secretly I wanted to have the courage to be a solo troubadour."

 

With his new record, The Jane, Room 217 – Jessee's first as a solo artist – he's finally seen that through.

Brigid Mae Power, Mosses

 

 Irish singer-songwriter Brigid Mae Power was born in London to a big Irish family, then moved to Ireland (Galway) when she was twelve years old. In addition to the guitar, she plays accordion, baritone ukulele, piano and harmonium; creating hauntingly dreamlike soundscapes. She has toured throughout Ireland, UK and the US supporting renowned acts such as Lee Ranaldo, Richard Dawson, Alasdair Roberts, Peter Broderick and Ryley Walker.

The seeds were sewn for the forthcoming self-titled release - and Tompkins Square debut - after playing a string of UK & Irish shows with esteemed American songwriter and musician Peter Broderick during May 2015. Peter invited Brigid to record a batch of new songs in his Portland home studio, The Sparkle, along the Oregon coast. The Irish musician finished writing this collection of songs in June '15 just before the recording sessions would take place in the early summer. The new record boasts an impeccable sound quality in which Power's mesmerizing voice lies in the forefront of the mix. "I craved having my voice sound larger but more intimate," Brigid explains. It is abundantly clear upon encountering Power's newest work that there is a newfound confidence permeating throughout the songs, augmented by Broderick's intuitive musical direction, which in turn helped the songs evolve. All songs were written by Brigid Mae Power, performed by Brigid and Peter Broderick and recorded, mixed and mastered by Peter Broderick at the Sparkle.

Brigid Mae Power's stunningly beautiful new solo full-length is an album drenched in reverb-soaked emotion and lament. Enchantingly performed and produced, the record showcases a songwriter of immense talent in a soundscape that naturally merges itself to Brigid Power's engulfing sound. The magic lies in the songwriter's expression of raw emotion, in all its delicate beauty. Themes include transformation, change, motherhood, acceptance, strength, courage and trust. In the words of Power, the album is about "trusting if you lose yourself or your way -- you can come back."

Mosses emerged from the heart and mind of Ryan Jewell as a solo outlet for the songs and experiments he was writing that didn’t quite fit with his existing projects. Now active as the duo of Danette Bordenkircher and Ryan Jewell, the sound is eclectic with heavy elements of folk, psych, free jazz, rock and roll, and modal improvisation that are played on 6 and 12-string acoustic and electric guitars, organs, synthesizers, dulcimers, drums, tabla and voice.

Brute Force, Hamish Kilgour

Brute Force, Hamish Kilgour

Brute Force
Brute Force is an incredible American artist whoʼs been a cult secret for far too long (46 years and counting). Now more than ever the world needs Heavy/Funny, and you, gentle reader, prescient buyer, are in for a transformative treat.

Stephen Friedland, born in 1940, is the man behind the pseudonym Brute Force. As a young man in New York City, Friedland was introduced to The Tokens, an all-male doo-wop vocal group known for their hit, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

The Tokens hired Friedland to work as a songwriter for their music publishing company, Bright Tones Productions, and he eventually became the group’s keyboardist. While working for Bright Tones Productions, he wrote The Chiffons’ 1965 hit “Nobody Knows What’s Goin’ On (In My Mind But Me),” of which his version appears as a bonus track on this album.

In 1967, with famed producer John Simon on board, Friedland went into the studio to record his debut, I, Brute Force – Confections of Love. With this record, he embarked on a journey to depart from the conventions of the current pop music. Sprinkled with surprisingly conspicuous lyrics and diverse instrumentation, his debut certainly stretched the envelope. His characters, weirder than most, are still your basic star-crossed lovers, just ones who march to a slightly quirkier drum. The music sounds familiar and the challenges are the same, but it’s all happening in an alternate dimension.

After the hopefully, but tragic defeat of his single "King of Fuh", Friedland decided to leave the music industry. While working for his father as a paralegal in Edison, New Jersey, he continued songwriting. Eventually regaining his confidence in the ‘80s and ‘90s, Friedland performed as a musical stand-up comic under his given name.

In 2001, Gareth Jones, bandleader of Misty’s Big Adventure, an eight-piece band from Birmingham, England, sent him an email. Jones had read about Brute in Irwin Chusid’s “Music in the Key of Z,” and found “Tapeworm of Love,” a song of Brute’s that appears on this album, on the Internet. He began covering the song with his band, and hoped that Brute would come to England to tour with them. Brute accepted his offer, and since then has toured with Misty’s Big Adventure, as well as with his own band, which features his daughter, Lilah, performing as Daughter of Force.

Hamish Kilgour
One of New Zealand music’s maverick spirits, Hamish Kilgour formed The Clean with younger brother David in Dunedin in the late 70s.
A major part of Flying Nun’s early success, they have been hugely influential internationally, particularly in US indie circles, where fans include members of Pavement and Yo La Tengo.

Hamish Kilgour's second-ever solo album, Finklestein, flips the singer/guitarist/drummer's path taken on All Of It And Nothing. Having previously gone for intimate, minimalistic performances, Finklestein displays a chock-full production quality akin to a fairytale. It's a fitting change, seeing as the songs are based around a children's story Kilgour conceived for his son about a kingdom that invents a way of dealing with their depleting gold resources. The songs include organ, saxophone, pedal steel, piano, vibraphone, harmonica, even footsteps (Hamish is renowned for his stepping), most of it performed by Kilgour and his producer/collaborator Gary Olsen at Olsen's studio, Marlborough Farms in Brooklyn. Originally conceived as being a children's book as well as album, Finklestein rides roughshod through this fairytale world with grace.

Eamon Fogarty + Adrien Crowley, Taft

Advance Tickets:

https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3608072

"I got a phone call from Eamon Fogarty in the Spring of 2016. We’d never met but I just finished producing an album for Brooklyn singer/songwriter (and Eamon’s roommate) Jay Hammond. Eamon was in Los Angeles on vacation but his girlfriend couldn’t make her flight. He decided to go surfing and record vocals for his new album, “Progressive Bedroom”. Jay gave him my number.

 

Eamon has a wonderful, confident voice. I’ve heard him make reference to Scott Walker on occasion but most young artists don’t realize how much they sound like themselves. I was so impressed that I called him back for a recording session on my album “Psychic Temple IV” (soon to be released on Joyful Noise Recordings!) before he could return to the East Coast. That summer I asked him to go on tour with me. He did.

 

My attraction to honesty is relentless. Eamon Fogarty has no guile. He is as true as a bird singing in the trees. His music, like life itself, contains the beautiful and the grotesque. Some artists demand love from their audience. I don’t know how or why it works but I love Eamon’s music. I feel protective of it. When something that powerful calls out... you should pick up the phone."

 

−Chris Schlarb

Hans Chew, Dave Heumann of Arbouretum

Hans Chew, Dave Heumann of Arbouretum

Perhaps best known for his keyboard work with other artists like D. Charles Speer, Jack Rose, Endless Boogie, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Steve Gunn, Hans Chew has established himself as a versatile singer, songwriter and performer in his own right. His 2010 debut album Tennessee & Other Stories… received four stars from Rolling Stone and was heralded by Uncut as one of the top 25 albums of the year.

 

A native Tennessean, Chew’s style has been described in wide fashion, with comparisons to artists like James Booker, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Feat, Nirvana, Little Richard, and Leon Russell. “My grandfather sang harmony on Sundays in a little country church quartet and in the evening I’d hear him pickin’ and grinnin’ that 'high lonesome sound' of Jimmy Martin and Hank Williams out on the carport with his brothers. My mother turned me on to Hendrix and the Stones, but my father listened only to classical music: I knew Beethoven’s Fifth before Led Zeppelin’s fourth.”

 

Also a dynamic live performer, iTunes’s Music Editor sums it up: “Hans Chew cranks up the tempo and the manic rock ’n’ roll performance until it feels like you’ve landed in the early ‘70s, when Derek & The Dominos were piecing together Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs and The Rolling Stones were waiting around Nellcote to record the bits and pieces of Exile on Main St.”

 

Chew lives and works in New York City.

http://hanschew.com/

 

Arbouretum has been called “the best of the millennial classic rock bands, a guitar-fuzzed powerhouse.” The band, founded by guitarist and vocalist Dave Heumann, effortlessly weaves its melodies and guitar solos with the often hypnotic rhythms of bassist Corey Allender and drummer Brian Carey around the deliberate keyboard of Matthew Pierce to lift the vocals. The results are a full sound delivered with a striking sense of intimacy. Throughout their time together, the Baltimore-based band have been praised for their ability to weave elaborate vocal lines, and guitar solos that often unravel into extended improvisation, but never with as much finesse as on Song of the Rose. In less practiced hands, these ideas could easily fall into contrivance, but on Song of the Rose, Arbouretum use these elements to perfect their craft of storytelling in song, both lyrically and sonically.

He also produced a collection of vintage recordings by Rob Galbraith due late 2015 and provided research and liner notes to the Elyse Weinberg "lost" album, both courtesy of the Numero group.

 

"DeCicca is a careful, precise songwriter, but the songs don't necessarily sound written. Instead, they seem like they occurred to him naturally and ineluctably. " -- Pitchfork

Rosali + Pigeons, J.R. Bohannon

Rosali is the solo incarnation of Philadelphia-based musician, Rosali Middleman. Through songwriting and performances, Rosali shares resonant emotions and the authenticity of being, unveiling herself to connect with broad audiences. Rosali’s songwriting realizes life as rich and alluring melodies within the framework of traditional popular songwriting. Catch Rosali as the guitarist for Long Hots.

https://rosali.bandcamp.com/

J.R. Bohannon is a 6 and 12 string fingerstyle guitarist from Louisville, Kentucky, now residing in Brooklyn, NY. Rooted in the deep traditions of the American south, Bohannon has been honing his craft behind the scenes of his drone/ambient project, Ancient Ocean. No longer hiding behind pedals and synthesizers, his informative style is not based in the tradition of the American Primitive Guitar but reaches out with nods to influences like Ry Cooder, African Tuareg Music, and Andres Segovia. His first debut full-length will be out in 2019 and was recorded by Jeff Zeigler (War on Drugs, Steve Gunn, Kurt Vile). Having opened for Pharoah Sanders, Steve Gunn, Ryley Walker, Martin Courtney, Jim White, and other luminaries in the short existence of the project, the beginning tracks of a long trail ahead have been laid. "Brooklyn’s J.R. Bohannon seems to illustrate the shapes and sights of American landscapes by bending some of its usual musical forms. His work for solo acoustic guitar tucks busy tufts of notes into small spaces, then lets them unfurl in beautifully riverine motion." - Grayson Haver Currin, Indy Week

In a world where daily life revolves around a screen and a finger, KADAWA gives their audience an ‘offline’ experience worth lifting their heads for. 
Described by 'The New York Times' as "joy and force in equal measure, full of hummable melodies and moments of proud combustion”, the trio's music draws inspiration from jazz, rock, cinema and literature to create song-like instrumental compositions driven by powerful grooves, distinct moods and adventurous improvisations. 
Comprised of guitarist Tal Yahalom, bassist Almog Sharvit and drummer Ben Silashi, KADAWA performs all-original compositions alongside interpretations of Bjork, Bowie, Ornette Coleman and others.

Since 2005, Buck has recorded and performed as one half of the Psych-Folk duo Arborea. To date, Arborea has released five albums, including 2013's ESP-Disk' release Fortress of the Sun, and produced two various-artist compilations (Leaves of Life, a benefit for the World Food Program, and We Are All One, In the Sun, a tribute to Robbie Basho).

What's Your Damage? Monthly Comedy

School's back in session, the trees are just barely starting to turn and all the terrible mistakes you made over the summer are slowly coming back to haunt you.

Joe Pera (Adult Swim's Joe Pera Talks With You)

 

Rebecca O'Neal (Bridgetown Comedy Festival)

 

Adam Wade (20 time winner of The Moth's StorySlam)

 

Join us, won't you, at Wonders of Nature!
