Matt Duncan
Matt Duncan
Matt Duncan's sound borrows heavily from 60's and 70's R&B, from the people who perfected the pop song. But he has no desire to emulate the costuming or vocabulary of the past. Duncan is a teller of truths, for better or worse. Cliched love songs, vague tangents, and grand melodramas are not his stock in trade. Instead, he writes about the small, unsung successes and failures that keep most of us busy, while we wait for big cinematic resolutions. And he always keeps things lively.
Big Fresh
Big Fresh
a ten-member art/pop collective from Lexington, Kentucky, has expanded like the universe since 2009’s ambitious home-recorded B.F.F. (Big Fresh Forever, Garden Gate Records); they’ve been joined by new singers and multi-instrumentalists Faith Diamond (Satellite Giant) and Kimberly Smith (Bear Medicine, Frigidkitty). Their upcoming EP’s feature guest vocals from Robert Schneider (The Apples in Stereo), Per Sunding (Eggstone), Karen Hover (Sound of Ceres/Candy Claws), and many others.
ATTEMPT
ATTEMPT
ATTEMPT is the recording project of Trevor Tremaine. Tremaine is known as the drummer for noise band Hair Police, as the proprietor of the now-defunct micro-edition cassette label Rampart Tapes, as a co-founder of the surrealist Resonant Hole collective, as the conductor of avant-folk combo Eyes & Arms of Smoke, or as a sideman with a strange and diverse resume (Burning Star Core, Warmer Milks, Matt Duncan, Death Unit, Silverware, and Thurston Moore’s Aktion Unit).
