LANY: Strong Dream-Pop Debut

Coming in out of L.A., three-piece dream-pop trio LANY’s debut album is making waves all over the world. Comprised of Paul Klein, Les Priest, and Jake Goss, LANY has been working hard and playing harder, performing 117 shows in 12 countries last year alone.

New Orleans, funk, and more: A Chat with Naughty Professor

Coming in hot out of New Orleans is Naughty Professor, a horn-driven funktastic six-piece. They’re making waves all over the scene, having just played Summer Camp and Taste of Randolph.

In Depth with Bassel Almadani of Bassel and the Supernaturals

Music is one of the most effective communication tools in humanity’s arsenal; it removes the tension and adverse circumstantial aspects of other forms of messaging, and people can get lost in a song and be inspired by the message. Bassel and the Supernaturals, a Chicago-based seven-piece soul-funk outfit, are on the scene with their piercing, radiant songwriting and a point to make.

Behind the Scenes with Organ Freeman

Organ Freeman, a jazztastic, high-octane funk fusion trio from L.A., is one of the most riveting acts in a while. Slinky guitar and organ melodies splash over dynamite drums; it threatens to spiral out of control at times and when it’s over, you can’t help but listen again.

Summer Camp Chat with Aqueous

Hailing from Buffalo, NY, is Aqueous, a head-turning band combining skilled songwriting with extra-crunchy jams and a strong community vibe. Their heavier, technically-demanding take on jam music combines swirling guitar leads, epic drums and bass, and splashing keys into tight-knit song construction with loose, flowing jams that take you on a rockin' trip.

Sitting Down with Mungion at Summer Camp 2017

Chicago has always been a hotbed of killer music. One of the most riveting new players on the scene is Mungion, with stellar chops, inventive song structure, and the ability to pay homage to their influences without sounding dull or repetitive. I sat down with the boys at Summer Camp to chat for a bit, and they had some interesting insights into their world.

Interview with Mihali Savoulidis, Brook Jordan, and Zdenek Gubb of Twiddle

Coming in hot out of Burlington, Vermont is one of the hardest-working eclectic jam bands on the scene these days: Twiddle. Their complex yet groovy take on jam music lends a soulful feel to shredding improvisation and uplifting songwriting. They’ve been catching ears and turning heads left and right, and they are not a show to miss at Summer Camp this year.

Interview With David New of The Hip Abduction

The Hip Abduction is one of the bands I’m looking forward to seeing for the first time at Summer Camp next week. Their mixture of soaring vocal melodies and tropical guitars lends itself well to their penchant for sparkling world-music-flavored dance tunes. Lead guitarist/vocalist David New was kind enough to give me some insight into the inner workings of the group.
