Wrong

Miami, FL noise rock quartet WRONG formed in 2014 from the ashes of Capsule and released their debut EP Stop Giving last October via Robotic Empire. Featuring former members of Torche and Kylesa amongst their ranks, WRONG play Helmet / Unsane inspired heavy noise rock and were described by Noisey as an "outfit with impeccable credentials and a firm handle on the art of the bludgeoning groove" and by PunkNews as "very promising indeed". WRONG signed with Relapse Records in the summer of 2015 after making waves on their first North American tour with Torche and Nothing. The band will spend the rest of 2015 touring with House of Lightning and will put the finishing touches on their debut full-length at PineCrust studios in Gainesville, FL this August. The debut will see an early 2016 release while the band will continue to bring their relentless live show to a neighborhood near you for years to come.

Xasthur (Acoustic)

https://www.facebook.com/Xasthur-acousticunplugged-824188390951258/

Xasthur is a band that thrives on taking risks. From its early days of bleak and disturbing black metal up until the confrontational and dark acoustic folk blues music of today, it has always been a musical project that has been keeping people guessing. Xasthur started in 1996 through Scott Conner’s desire to express the negativity in life to listeners. Over the span of a decade, he released 8 albums and dozens of other releases through labels like Hydra Head Records. After putting the band to rest in 2010, Scott decided to change his musical style from black metal to acoustic folk and blues music and went on to start Nocturnal Poisoning. After a few years, Scott revived the Xasthur name in May of 2015 and now has a full band that comprises of vocalist and second guitarist Christopher Hernandez and bassist Rachel. This new reinvention of the band plays in the same vein of the style that was established with Nocturnal Poisoning. Xasthur’s music today can be described as a fingerpicked barrage of notes with varying moods and tempos. From the faster songs that paint pictures of urban desperation to the slower songs that mold into moments of solitude and depression, Xasthur is a band that keeps audiences locked into a dreary state of mind that will not let go until long after the music has stopped playing. With songs that confront drug abusers, homelessness, and the misery of city life, Xasthur’s music reminds us that the real nightmares are the ones we experience in everyday life.

Johanna Warren

http://johannawarren.com/

Johanna Warren crafts powerful songs in unusual time signatures with melancholic open tunings, weaving adept finger-picking with lilting, acrobatic vocal lines and potent poetry. An intuitively self-taught guitarist and classically trained flute player, Warren's writing draws from the depths of the human experience, alchemizing life's darkest moments into offerings of radiant beauty. Warren and her close collaborator, engineer/co-producer Bella Blasko, arrange and play nearly everything on their recordings, from piano, woodwinds and percussion to ambient soundscapes created with found objects. Although Warren has lent her vocal talents to artists like Iron & Wine, Natalie Merchant, and Jesca Hoop, she is a songwriter first and foremost, paying homage through her life's work to her personal saviors Joni Mitchell, Elliott Smith, and Nick Drake.
