DSSP17 Artist of the Day: FR33DBACK

Matthew Reisinger, known by his stage name FR33DBACK, is an electronic musician, sound designer, and composer from Tampa, Florida. Sharing the stage with some of the best in downtempo electronic music, including Chrome Sparks and Rhye, FR33DBACK can be found performing intensely layered Synthwave tunes amidst a myriad of buttons, knobs, and switches; resembling a “young” Dr. Frankenstein as he creates life by harnessing the power of electricity.

#DSSP15 Artist of the Day: Chant the Trees

We first learned about Chant the Trees from our favorite guys over at Florida Folk Scene.  Since then we've been hypnotized. Chant the Trees is a progressive acoustic duo of Mandolin and Guitar. Their music is characterized by an eclectic mix of acoustic old-timey folk and bluegrass rhythms and themes combined with the intricacies of progressive guitar based rock. Their folktale style lyrics are heavily based on Nature and the outside world, along with stories from another time. The group consists of brothers-by-blood Ryan and Kade Ballogg.

Catch Chant the Trees at 5:30pm on the Tropiccool Bus located at 2061 Central Ave and 21st Street.

#DSSP15 Artist of the Day: Jackson Davis & The Jackettes

The Jackettes are not so much a band as they are an attempt to give form to the passion felt for the music that we have come to know and love in our human existence. Like a child trying on their father's too-big suit and tie or a group of toddlers shoulder-stacked under a baggy trench coat-- we are youthfully attempting to carry the glimmering torch of our musical ancestors. This is an effort to give the world her next "classic sound." We love it all: from the tender ballads of the Great American Songbook, to the unpredictable antics of a swinging 70's r&b diva mythical and real....and we feel a strong obligation and connection to those of the yester-world to make music with those same characteristics. A sound that transcends being accepted and understood. We are humans struggling under the weight of living and dying. We are made by a great creator trying to be as creative. So it goes. The music we create embodies the out of touch, out of sync, misunderstood hysterical breakdown of simply living- to unite us.

See Jackson & The Jackettes perform at 8:10pm on the WOVE Stage, located at The Loft 2036 Central Ave Studio A. 


#DSSP15 Artist of the Day: Terminus Cursus

If you were able to catch Terminus Cursus at MicroGroove last night you were part of the chosen ones. Formed as a collaboration between Bradley Elston (drums) and Patrick Mugan (bass/vocals) with the original intention of featuring a rotating lineup of accompanying musicians for performances and recordings.  After joining them for a show on Halloween of 2013, Arthur Mugan (guitar/vocals) was added as a full-time member.  

The band’s self-recorded first album, 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6, was released by Kevin Greenspon’s Bridgetown Records on cassette in November 2014, solidifying the Terminus Cursus sound: distinctly aggressive post-punk, equally informed by the British (Echo & the Bunnymen, Joy Division, Wire) and American (Honor Role, Mission of Burma, Wipers) traditions and tempered with a smattering of more extreme contemporary reference points (Converge, Neurosis, Today is the Day).  

On of, the second Terminus Cursus album, was completed at Tampa’s Atomic Audio Recordings in November 2015.  Besides the increased sonic clarity and detail in comparison to the debut, On of more thoroughly develops the band’s previously latent krautrock and post-rock influences while losing none of the intensity for which they have become known.

#DSSP15 Artist of the Day: Permanent Makeup

“We’re from Florida. Everything you’ve heard is true.”
— - James, Chris and Susan

Expanding on the Minutemen-influenced critically-acclaimedart-punk of 2013's The Void...It Creeps, Florida's Permanent Makeup gives us their next full length Taker.

Springing from a collaboratively improv-based writing process throughout 2014, the songs on Taker have a morenaturally complex and aggressive approach.  Bassist Christopher expands "We have seen more of the country as a band, played with countless weird & wonderful bands and been witness to many incredible communities. This album was informed by all of these influences in the context of living and breathing in Tampa Bay, Florida." 

Whether it's drive and determination, a message of community and frustration or immediacy and purpose you want, then look no further than this band and this record.

Recorded and mixed by guitarist James Bess in their homes directly following 2 major tours of the US in 2014 (and coinciding with the band's 5th anniversary of their debut performance),Taker hits streets and shelves on August 21,2015 on CD and limited edition vinyl.

#DSSP15 Artist of the Day: Soapbox Soliloquy

    Soapbox Soliloquy is the lady filled, psychedelic, fagcore, hooride your parents warned you not to take; double dosed and meticulously crafted by the 5000 fingers of Dr. Terwilliker. Born of the Dragon and clawing for one of their own, Soapbox Soliloquy is the paint on the walls coloring the inner corridors of Jasmine's mind as well as the swirling galaxy that is above the spanning rural grassy planes that is her heart.  Through the use of highly intricate and nauseatingly advanced cloning technology from the planet Argelius II and magic learned from a royal flush of mystics, Jasmine is able to control the space time continuum for long enough to record a song or two once every lunar cycle. The tunes produced are the audible equivalent of glittery purple tie dyed confectioners fairydust sprinkled upon the top of your favorite cupcake; warm and moist from the oven, just like Mother used to make.

#DSSP15 Artist of the Day: FayRoy

 FayRoy is comprised of Indian Rocks Beach locals Kyle Fournier and Zachary Hoag as well as close friends Greyson Charnock (Someday River) and Sam Lagos (Wongkobbler). The band’s psychedelic garage rock influences are fused together with the atmosphere of the New England occult and 1960’s surf culture. After spending the past 3 years in San Francisco’s bay area, Kyle and Zack are settling back into Indian Rocks beach and finishing the recording of their second full LP and first studio LP at Blacktoe Studios. Expect music to begin trickling out in the coming weeks and the full release to be public in the beginning of next year.      http://fayroy.com/
