Ghost Tapes

Inspired by the elements of 70's funk and soul, 90's hip-hop and late 90's neo soul, Ghost Tapes delivers enchanting, cerebral, and poetic original music. The five-piece showcases provocative, powerful vocals and progressive compositions in a style dubbed "alt-soul". Underneath the lyrical acumen of Ishka B. Phoenix are keyboardist Evan Ballinger, bassist Zeke Kyoku, guitarist Nick Moulds, and drummer Will Carman. Along with their captivating performances, Ghost Tapes released their debut album in 2017 and poised to release their second full-length offering in 2019. 

Ghost Tapes has been in-studio guests on CPR's OpenAir, KGNU, KVCU, and CPT's Sounds on 29th, as well as playing prominent live performances at ARISE Music Festival, The Underground Music Showcase, and Westword Music Showcase.

"At [The Underground Music Showcase], Ghost Tapes was a major takeaway, popping triumphantly above the din with a care-free, funky set of throwback R&B. Led by the elastic vox of Ishka Phoenix, the group tangles with jazz chord progressions, occasionally political poetry and floor-slapping rhythms, a tricky high-wire act that they pull off with giddy poise." - Denver Post

"Ghost Tapes creates a blend of classic genres on its debut self-titled LP. Singer Ishka Phoenix leads the Denver quintet with remarkably soulful vocals while the band borrows elements from jazz, R&B and hip-hop. The band's energetic live show won them new fans at this year's Westword Music Showcase and Underground Music Showcase in Denver." - CPR's OpenAir

 

"Ghost Tapes were a funky, neo-soul standout ... frontwoman Ishka Phoenix had the crowd melting as she delivered tasty R&B sounds from her ice cream microphone." - boulderbeat

Based in Taos, New Mexico, The Second Wind Endeavor (TSWE) is a musical project powered by brains and hearts and bodies. Comprised of five friends passionate about music-making and performing, TSWE seeks to incorporate diverse musical influences and styles into its music, including rock & roll, old-time, soul, folk, funk, classical, and rhythm & blues. Featuring Michael Virga on guitar and lead vocals, Evan Sanchez on drums and cajon, Rose Dragoo on viola and vocals, Jesse Reist on cello and banjo, and Tristan Craig on bass, the band draws together a wide variety of musical backgrounds to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

 

Taking notes on everyone from Chuck Berry to Alabama Shakes, Ray Charles to Norah Jones, Robert Johnson to Derek Trucks, Pete Seeger to Ani Difranco, Bill Monroe to Chris Thile, and James Brown to Snarky Puppy, TSWE holds ambitions to make its own mark, however lengthy or brief, on the larger musical landscape. We are endeavoring to make something new using old ingredients, and we call it Folkestra Soulfunk.

During the summer of 2018, The Second Wind Endeavor released their debut recording, The Casita Sessions, which begins to explore those ambitions on a four-song EP that's sure to tickle your sonic tastebuds. Listen to The Casita Sessions here on the TSWE website or on SoundCloud. 

Now approaching the end of Summer 2019, TSWE looks forward to a slew of shows in and around Taos, NM, for the chance to share some new music that will be recorded over the course of the coming winter. So stay tuned and be well!

The brothers KONGOS—Johnny, Jesse, Dylan, and Danny—have music in their blood. Their South African/British father, John Kongos, landed multiple chart hits in the seventies, and the boys picked up instruments at a young age. Now, they're continuing that musical legacy.  

Growing up in London and Johannesburg, they ultimately settled in their mother's hometown of Phoenix, Arizona, where the band was officially formed in 2003. KONGOS began playing shows and recording, eventually releasing their self-titled debut album in 2007. Completely self-contained, they write, produce, engineer and mix their music as well as direct all their own music videos. 

After years touring, emailing labels, agents, radio stations and management companies, the brothers got their first break in 2011 when "I'm Only Joking" became a radio smash in South Africa, followed by multiple top 40 hits from their second album "Lunatic", including “Come With Me Now” which would go on to put KONGOS on the map in the United States and worldwide in 2014. The group became unanimously recognized as one of rock’s most infectious and invigorating new voices as the track went RIAA double-platinum for sales in excess of 2 million. It occupied the #1 spot at Alternative Radio for five weeks, marking the quickest ascent to the top by a new band in history. They spent the following 2 years on tour all over the world. 

In 2016 they returned with "Egomaniac", scoring another top ten Alternative hit with "Take It From Me" and have since had their music heard everywhere with placements by HBO, FX, CNN, NBC Sports, ESPN, NFL, The Expendables 3, Universal Studios, Dodge Ram, Samsung Galaxy, American Idol, The Originals, MTV Movie Awards, Playstation 4 and more.  Their videos have been viewed over 100 million times: http://smarturl.it/CWMNvideo. They’ve hit the stage on Late Night With Seth MeyersJimmy Kimmel LIVE!The Today Show and more and received acclaim from Rolling StoneUSA Today, and many others. 

2018 has seen an explosion of creativity from the band with an upcoming new album, “1929”, a 10 part documentary series, “Bus Call”, which follows their story and gives a compelling and realistic window into life on tour. The brothers also host a weekly podcast, “The Front Lounge”, where they discuss music, ideas and more with guests that include other musicians, artists, touring professionals and entrepreneurs.

Liver Down the River 

High Energy Foot Stompin' Funkadeligrass out of Durango Co!
Funkadeligrass - An eclectic mix of hard driving, psycadelic bluegrass and funk music designed to rock hard and dance your pants off.
From the high mountain river-valley of Durango Colorado comes a five piece band of musicians called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots in countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since its creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. Their unique sound and high energy performances have lead them to share the stage with the likes of The Infamous Stringdusters, Railroad Earth, The New Mastersounds, and Poor Man’s Whiskey, to name a few. 
The band got their start in 2012 when Patrick Storen and Emily Winter met and started playing music together. A few common fiddle tunes and Grateful Dead numbers later, the two were ready to perform. Searching for the missing link, they enlisted the help of funk master and  bass player Derek Abt. With the addition of New Orleans native Cy Fontenot on drums and funky keys man Michael “Sweet T” Todd, the music comes to life.
The music is a blend of original and improvisational compositions that take the listener on a journey. Each member brings their own inspirations and elements to the sound. From the high peaks of bluegrass, the deepest pockets of the funk, and the outer reaches of space, a unique genre of music is created. Inspiration comes from the band’s collective adventures, love of nature, the following of the soul, and the drive to keep on moving on.
The band released their five track Liver Down The River EP on June 30th 2015. One year later on April 8th 2016, the band released their first full length album, Life You Love. On these tracks, Liver Down the River strives to capture the immense energy felt during the live shows, and to showcase each musician’s skills.  Attempting to reflect the beautiful, yet powerful and expansive essence of the Colorado country, the inspiration comes truly… from living the life you love.
 
 
Pherkad (ABQ, NM)
Psychedelic music for the soul
Pherkad is a genre bending, experimental four-piece jamband. These melodic grooves will have your feet forging a path into the unknown. Originally the brainchild of guitarist Jason Bowers and drumming lead-vocalist “Cheese”, Pherkad has grown from a duo into a four-piece jam band paving a path through the comfortable and familiar and well beyond into the sonic unknown. Talented keyboardist Zac Ramsey gets ultra-funky ticklin' the ivories every night and holding down the low end is bassist Chris “Chrispy” Patchett who also showcases his songwriting and takes lead vocals occasionally. Get ready to blast off, because Pherkad is going to take you on a jamtastic voyage with their well composed, tasteful and downright funky blend of music.
"It's like fractals for the soul". The future is bright, better bring your sunglasses.

Yak Attack is a live electronica power trio from Portland, Oregon. Founded in 2013, the band has experienced steady growth over the past few years and has been building buzz on the strength of its live shows and the instant connection its music makes with new listeners. The group's music is best described as "organic electronica", using skillful playing, live loops, and tightly constructed songs combined with raw improvisation to build high-energy and uplifting music from scratch, where every note is played and recorded live. The band draws on influences from a wide spectrum of electronica, such as house, drum and bass, and breakbeat, along with elements of jam, funk, and jazz. The result is a live show that is musically sophisticated but widely accessible, with a diverse and engaged fanbase that travels to out of town shows and festivals to witness the band's continually evolving sound.
Yak Attack has been selling out local and regional shows and has developed a reputation as "the region's go to late night act" in the summer festival and afterparty circuit. Fresh off a round of touring supporting jamtronica heavyweights STS9 and Sunsquabi, the band has also shared the stage with established or up-and-coming acts such as Fruition, Turkuaz, TAUK, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and The Magic Beans. After releasing "Safety Third" on Ropeadope records in 2018, the band is currently recording their fourth full-length album, and about to embark on a packed festival schedule including national events such as Camp Bisco and Jazzfest. Watch for Yak Attack to bring its unique dance party to a venue near you.

When TROUT STEAK REVIVAL won the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition in 2014, they emerged on the roots music scene to listeners anticipating the often–heard dose of progressive bluegrass with a hint of jam. Their unique brand of mountain music stood out, though, and quickly the band caught the attention of fans and folk radio DJs alike. Over the last three years, the Colorado quintet has further refined its style and, with SPIRIT TO THE SEA, delivers a mesmerizing and soul-quenching array of original songs resonating with the finer points of folk and Americana. Produced by Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters, the new album is a reflection of the depth and honesty of songwriting that is possible when a trusting and encouraging band of friends grows together into a band of musicians.

With each individual contributing lead vocals and instrumentation to the band’s collaborate songwriting process, TROUT STEAK REVIVAL is more than a sum of its five parts. BEVIN FOLEY (fiddle), STEVE FOLTZ (guitar & mandolin), CASEY HOULIHAN (bass), WILLIAM KOSTER (guitar & dobro), and TRAVIS MCNAMARA (banjo) take turns singing lead and harmonies throughout the album, and such sharing of the vocal ensemble roles creates a diverse and satisfying blend of musical offerings to listeners. Most of the band members of TROUT STEAK REVIVAL originally hail from the Midwest, but their lives, their musical endeavors, and the band’s identity now hold roots in Colorado. Inspired by and embodying the popular live music scene in Denver and Boulder, TROUT STEAK REVIVAL is emerging as the quintessential Colorado band. Named by Denver Westword as “Best Bluegrass Band” in 2016 and 2017, and chosen by the State of Colorado to represent the culture of its citizens on a Today Show appearance, the band draws constant recognition for its wholesome message and down-to-earth sound.

To succeed, though, a band must grow, and SPIRIT TO THE SEA expands TROUT STEAK REVIVAL’S repertoire beyond Colorado bluegrass without leaving behind the communal nature of the band’s origins. The new album is more diverse and inviting than their past albums, rolling out the carpet for new fans with many different tones, vibes, and topics underlying the songs. Whether listeners are in search of a deep connection with lyrics or simply need a good melody to dance to, SPIRIT TO THE SEA provides a mix of music that is a pleasure to relate to. Songs crafted out of love, fear, heartbreak, wonder, joy, and freedom provide a glimpse into the soulful depth of the individual members of TROUT STEAK REVIVAL and hearken back to emotions all our own. 

“Trout Steak Revival continues to realize their amazing potential as a band, upping their musical game and gaining new fans all across the country. They are committed to making an original statement that's soulful and vibrant, and their new album, Spirit to the Sea, is the best example of that yet. The band members all write, sing and play like pros, but the collective takes precedence, and that is what truly sets them apart. Trout Steak is making beautiful, lasting music, and I feel very lucky to be a part of the process." - Chris Pandolfi, Infamous Stringdusters

Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show 

 

Tone Ranger (AKA Alex Simon) makes dance music that embodies the magnetic and supernatural beauty of the American Southwest. Blending deep house rhythms with ethereal instrumentation (lap steel, harmonica, whistling, voice), he has earned a reputation as one of the region's most original and sought-after live electronic acts. Performances have often been described as heart-opening, seamlessly moving from ecstatic peaks to grounding sonic valleys. In August, he released his debut EP with Jumpsuit Records, and has since opened for international acts like Quantic and Dirtwire. His next EP, On the Horizon, is set to release on March 5, 2019 followed by a Southwest tour.

Simon is inspired primarily by the American landscape and the stories embedded in it. Though stunningly beautiful on the surface, he understands that underneath there is a deep cry amongst most of us for healing. Crafted by the exposure to natural elements, a sense of wonder, and that connection you can only find on the dance floor, the music of Tone Ranger exists as a prayer that we move forward and heal together.

Wake is Matthew Michael Ahern Hettich, a SANTA FE, NM based electronic musician.Matthew was born in Miami, FL but soon emigrated to the floating cloud city/colony CP09E8, currently in orbit around Europa. It was there he apprenticed with Strand Trank, the universally renown master digi-organic sound craftsman.It was Strand Trank who introduced Matthew to the Renoise Lifestyle Group (R.L.G.) and the associated Clan of the Kick Drum (C.o.t.K.D.), where he learned to properly honor the Great Square Wave. After Leaving CP09E8 for the ceremonial Fast Fourier Transform, Matthew settled briefly in Los Angeles, CA, where, during the recent Comet Crisis, he met fellow R.L.G. member, Denny Denny Breakfast, with whom he runs the Total Fucking Pizza Party. It was also in L.A. that he began to roll with the notorious "PROXIMAL RECORDS" collective.It was the death of Strand Trank that motivated Matthew to move to Oakland, CA, to seek counsel with the last remaining Sawtooth of the C.o.t.K.D., Vibroy "Honest" James. Before emigrating to p408, "Honest" blessed Matthew with the Sacred Flange, which he stands guard, always holding the Traditional Phasor. It was during his guard at 'the Flange' that he began to roll deep with Schematic Records and it was 'the Flange' that eventually sent him to Santa Fe to work with Meow Wolf.

Kikagaku Moyo progressed from early days in Tokyo’s experimental scene to traveling the world with their mind-bending sounds, exploring different facets of psychedelia on each new release and blowing minds with a live show that was just as searching as their records. The shifting dimensions of Masana Temples are informed by various experiences the band had with traveling through life together, ranging from the months spent on tour to making a pilgrimage to Lisbon to record the album with jazz musician Bruno Pernadas. The songs came together in the wake of the band breaking up the communal house most of them had shared in Tokyo, with some members relocating to Amsterdam, and others moving to different parts of Japan. Transitioning from being based in the scene they had roots in to scattering around various locales made for an even more enhanced understanding of how mystically connected the sum of their parts were when the band reunited to record new material. The music is the product of time spent in motion and all of the bending mindsets that come with it.

The band sought out Pernadas both out of admiration for his music and in an intentional move to work with a producer who came from a wildly different background. With Masana Temples, the band wanted to challenge their own concepts of what psychedelic music could be. Elements of both the attentive folk and wild-eyed rocking sides of the band are still intact throughout Masana Temples, but they’re sharper and more defined. Without sacrificing any of their experimental impulses, songs are more composed and cohesive. Pernadas’ bright production meets with nearly telepathically locked-in performances, on both lazy cloud-like jaunts like “Nazo Nazo” or fuzzed-out expeditions like lead single “Gatherings”. Drummer/vocalist Go Kurosawa, guitarist/vocalist Tomo Katsurada, bassist Kotsuguy, sitar and keyboard player Ryu Kurosawa and guitarist Daoud Popal Akira act as a unit, with an intuitive attention to space and dynamics that could only come from years of playing together in every imaginable setting.

More than the literal interpretation of being on a journey, the album’s always changing sonic panorama reflects the spiritual connection of the band moving through this all together. Life for a traveling band is a series of constant metamorphoses, with languages, cultures, climates and vibes changing with each new town. The only constant for Kikagaku Moyo throughout their travels were the five band members always together moving through it all, but each of them taking everything in from very different perspectives. Inspecting the harmonies and disparities between these perspectives, the group reflects the emotional impact of their nomadic paths.

Coming together in a way more deliberate than the beautifully floating improvisations of their Stone Garden EP or the sometimes hushed dreamstate of 2016 album House In The Tall Grass, Masana Temples is focused and clear in its vision in a way that feels unlike any of Kikagaku Moyo’s earlier sounds.

 

Minami Deutsch biography
Founded in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan in 2014

MINAMI DEUTSCH is a Krautrock band formed by Kyotaro MIULA (guitars, vocals, synthesizer), Taku IDEMOTO (guitar), Keita ISE (bass) and Hikari SAKASHITA (drums).

Their self-titled debut album, released by Guruguru Brain in 2015, sounds very much like classic Krautrock bands like NEU!, CAN or FAUST with its energic motoric beat, thumping bass, strange vocals and (mostly) soothing guitars.

 

TAN COLOGNE

Tan Cologne is the new project of Lauren Green (formerly Mirror Travel) and Marissa Macias formed in Taos, NM. Creating their own experience of sonic space waves, Tan Cologne sounds like diving into a secret dimension where Mazzy Star and CAN met and went surfing together on silky waves of sand dunes. Heavily influenced by the alien landscapes of New Mexico, Green & Macias are currently finishing up their debut full-length album entitled “Cave Vaults on The Moon in New Mexico.” Joined by Parker Shebs and Ry Warner (formerly Ohioan/Castanets) in performance, Tan Cologne explores the dynamics of floating through dreamy double vocals, swirling guitars, and rhythmic woven textures.
