Wardell - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
New York and LA-based duo Wardell draws from a wide range of influences, but their music is best informed by a shared history. Theo and Sasha are a brother and sister whose songs speak to their summery Los Angeles heritage, the comfort and rivalry of family, and a diverse set of shared musical tastes ranging from Kate Bush to the Distillers. After the release of their debut EP "The Brother / Sister EP," on UK label National Anthem, Wardell saw critical acclaim from publications as varied as NME, Interview Magazine, Refinery 29, and Vogue.

Following a string of performances at SXSW, the band spent most of summer 2014 in the studio recording their debut album "Love / Idleness." The album builds on the sunny tones of "The Brother / Sister EP" and refines that sound, bringing just a hint of grit to the mix. From the dance-pop leanings of "Dancing on the Freeway" to the soulful title track, "Love / Idleness" is the fully realized work of two musicians whose visions -- if not their locations -- have perfectly converged.

"Love / Idleness" will be released in February 2015.
