The line up…
So, too, has powerdove. Since its inception in 2007, the brainchild of Annie Lewandowski has grown from a band of one to one band: of color in a spectrum, of frequency between towers, of bodies reaching toward some abiding vision of nature. From these issue the voices, loves, and frayed truths that define the powerdove sound. Together with John Dieterich (of noise pop outfit Deerhoof) and Thomas Bonvalet (he of the solo project L’ocelle Mare), Lewandowski recently explored fresh yet somehow familiar territories on 2013’s Do You Burn?” Now, on “Arrest”, she and her fellow travelers erase another border from the map.
Johnny Dowd is an American alternative country musician. Typical of his style are experimental, noisy breaks in his songs and strong gothic elements and undercurrent of black humor & the absurd in his work. Although his early albums were most celebrated in the alternative country community, he has never quite fit into any particular genre.
Tampa-bred instrumental math-prog duo that plays fast and futuristic melodies, with busy drums and sonic loopage scattered throughout their songs. Their sound is taut and nervous, full of abrupt, jagged instrumental twists and turns.
BRIAN! wield dynamic and complex compositions that pull influence from the Rock In Opposition movement, classical, jazz, prog, noise, and math-rock, all performed with a loud rock live intensity.
