‘Just when you think great guitar music is on its way out, there’s always a track or two that keep you holding onto the thin threads that represent today’s indie-rock scene. Gold Connections’ new track “Icarus” is a solid reason to clutch hold of the great roots of guitar music, and to keep fighting for it to stay alive.’

Noah Gundersen with Harrison Whitford

Noah Gundersen
Harrison Whitford
September 19
Visulite Theatre
In America today, anyone can engage in spiritual surrender. Performing the rite is simple: one first gathers with their community in a room of mirrors (in peripheral vision these mirrors appear as windows). Next, the agendas, hopes, and grievances of each individual are written down and cast along pulsed radio frequencies to data centers. From here they are automatically sifted through a neural network of graphics processing units, and contributed to an artificial intelligence engine. The principal aim of the ritual is to preserve the cosmic movement of collective perception. Secondary aims include catharsis, prosperity, and (occasionally) procreation. Because of the persistence of social stresses and mounting political dread, the ritual’s cyclic performance is necessary (twice daily, once at dusk and once at dawn).
Paradoxically, even those who question the efficacy of this tradition must do so from within the same framework, in the form of status updates, tweets, or blog posts. In the early part of 2017 Noah wrote:
“This is our voice. The Aether. An invisible platform. A maze of wires and boxes safely containing our proclamations… While white men with pens close their doors, stuff their ears with cotton, and break the world… we piss in the ocean… we drown in white noise.”
(Once upon a time, Noah Gundersen poetically sang that the storms which make us tremble also “fill our organs up with air,”…allowing us to sing “honest songs”. What of our songs now? Are they just piss in the ocean? White Noise?)
A longtime fan responded via Facebook, referring to the entry as “a goddamn dumpster fire of a post”.
“Your early records are masterpieces,” he commented, “…but this scramble to be anything but what your parents are is killing your authenticity.”
Authenticity can be a fickle mistress it seems. Noah has been peddling sincerity and introspection in musical form for almost a decade; songs that give listeners a taste of the emotional nectar in the pit of another human’s gut. He’s been dredging up viscous fistfulls of his own being and shaping them into little waxen votives, candles meant to illuminate the territory between shameless confession and hopeless redemption, for all of the other twenty-somethings who’ve been groping around in that long existential shadow.
At some point this whole process must have lost its charm. It was two years ago that Noah, like some artistic ouroboros, began to sing the words “Am I earning the right to live by looking in a mirror? There’s nothing more sincere than selfish art?” The cyclic ritual of self-induced nausea, staring in the mirror mouth agape, waiting to wretch new words and sounds, was catching up with him. Not long after, in the early part of 2016, he sat down for a show and felt like he was dying.
“Instead of my life up to that point flashing before my eyes, it was my future. A future playing songs I didn’t believe in… pouring my soul out into a vehicle I no longer recognized or loved.”
Noah turned to a fellow songwriter, who shared this mote of reassurance from dancer and choreographer Martha Graham:
“No artist is pleased… There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”
This crisis was an opportunity for the serpent to relinquish hold of its own tail, for forward motion. To turn his gaze away from reflection, and maybe instead at the mirror itself, alternate voices and distorted perceptions that throw their weight onto the human psyche in powerful ways, but evade expression in introspective storytelling.
So, that’s White Noise, I think: the fluorescent glow of queer divine dissatisfaction. The distorted buzz manufactured by dumb metal phalluses thrust into a vacuum of waves and signals. It doesn’t dwell on (and in fact seems uninterested in) introspection. Not a guiding light. Not the reasoned problem-solving of the ego, but the muddled demands of the id. It’s a myriad of interpolated signals, symbols, and voices, like a tube-TV greedily flipping through channels on auto-program:
“Heavy Metals” is cosmic dismay that’s been pasted over with a sugary synth veneer. “Cocaine, Sex, and Alcohol (From a Basement in L.A.)”, like a messy public broadcast, leverages a din of drunken band sounds and disoriented muttering, “I’ve got all this alcohol… do you wanna see my show?”
The decadent yearning of “Bad Desire” sits between the other songs of dissolution like a soap opera broadcasting alongside the evening news. Just as Noah finishes crooning the final honey-sweet chorus, “…and I wanna see you tonight, one last time,” we transition into night sweats, the frantic yelling of sleep terrors, all heralding the cathartic industrial funeral dirge of “Wake Me Up, I’m Drowning”.
Noah is no longer lighting votives, but dumpster fires—big, bright, symbolic and chaotic. Musical vignettes of combustion, rubbish, degeneracy and, perhaps most comfortingly, warmth; because sometimes overlooked in the mad grasping for heady, introspective Authenticity is music that’s heartfelt. In “The Sound”, Noah scourges a source of entitlement that is entirely ambiguous, but does so with a sort of exasperated conviction that is only ever reserved for one’s nation, one’s God, or one’s self. The words “How many times will you shit on what you’re given? How many times till you shut up and listen?” escape his throat with a desperation that (bafflingly) surpasses even his most vulnerable songs about heartbreak, addiction, or loss of faith.
Whether the voices he channels are symbolic or literal, paralyzed with fear or pushing a manic brand of salvation, each amounts to something laced with warm, ruddy veins (I have a feeling that Noah’s music always will). If you listen closely you’ll hear the spiritualist, who takes solace in the fact that when he’s gone, the water in his body may be the beginning of something new. There’s also the doomsayer, certain of his fate, but still so afraid, who can’t help but ask of his own violent trembling, “Are these my feet attempting to dance?” Then there’s mortality, trying to shout through all of the noise, “Send my love to everyone.”
White Noise was produced by Nate Yaccino and features long-time band-members and collaborators Abby Gundersen, Jonny Gundersen, and Micah Simler. It will be released into the Aether on September 22nd, 2017

Mt. Joy
10/2/18
Visulite Theatre
‘These dreams are more than paper things,’ sings Matt Quinn on Mt. Joy’s infectious folk-rocker ‘Astrovan,’ a warm, yearning bit of road-trip philosophy that posits the existence of a Deadhead Jesus cruising the dusty highways of the countryside, nursing a roach on his way to only He knows where. It’s an auspicious line from a band predicated on the revival of teenage dreams.
Mt. Joy started off as a rekindling of shared musical ambitions between Philadelphia high school friends Matt Quinn (vocals, guitar) and Sam Cooper (guitar). Reunited in Los Angeles thanks to the ebbs and flows of adult life, the pair met multi-instrumentalist Michael Byrnes through a Craigslist ad. They named themselves Mt. Joy as an ode to a mountain in Valley Forge National Park near Sam’s childhood home, and together, with Byrnes’ roommate Caleb Nelson producing, they recorded three songs and sent them out into the world, hoping for the best. ‘I knew I still wanted to write songs, but the realities of life made that dream seem pretty impossible,’ Quinn says.
Much to the band’s amazement, ‘Astrovan’ accomplished the impossible. Without initial promotion or fanfare, the song took off on Spotify, racking up 5 million streams to date. ‘The irony of ‘Astrovan’ was that song was really about being stuck in a life and wanting to have the opportunity to pursue a dream, and in an instant it gave us that opportunity. ‘ Quinn says. Mt. Joy quickly transitioned from a part-time calling into a full-fledged band rounded out by Byrnes on bass, Sotiris Eliopoulos on drums and Jackie Miclau on keyboard.
Come 2017, Mt. Joy hit the road, and hit it hard: They played tour dates alongside the likes of The Shins, The Head and The Heart, The Lone Bellow, and Whitney, and popped up at some of the summer’s biggest festivals, including Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza and Made In America. ‘We were put on some big shows very quickly,’ Quinn says. ‘The growth for us has been exponential – we’ve really just become a family that’s constantly pushing each other and the live show to be great.’ They eventually caught the attention of Dualtone Records and began work on their debut album.
Steeped in folk-rock tradition and powered by the intuitive creative connection between Quinn and Cooper, the songs on ‘Mt. Joy’ depict Quinn wrestling with his own conscience, where the mundane and the fantastic collide as he processes tragedy, society, and love. Opener ‘I’m Your Wreck’ describes ‘monsters in (the) closet, using up the wi-fi’ as it cycles from its desperate, spiraling verses to its swinging, stubbornly optimistic coda, while the loping, plaintive chords of ‘Younger Days’ meditate on a frayed psyche and the fear of choosing the wrong path. ‘Sheep,’ with its collapsing, hoarse-voiced cry of ‘freedom was paid in blood,’ is a post-Trump salvo on the responsibilities of the fortunate to overcome political and social despondency. And on ‘Silver Lining,’ perhaps the album’s brightest moment, Quinn surveys the damage of hard drugs and the vicious cycle of addiction, as the song’s melancholic sentiment kicks into its fervid, defiant chorus, all shout-along vocals and trilling guitars.
Taken together, the self titled ‘Mt. Joy’ LP is a startlingly open document, wracked with the anxieties and fears that come just as life seems to start working out. It’s a natural reaction from a wary band like Mt. Joy – the result of a sort of professional vertigo, as they’ve gone from virtual unknowns to hot young commodity in little over a year. But there’s a sense of hope underlying everything, girded by the fact that the Mt. Joy LP is an impressive, honest portrayal of a young band facing that moment where dreams become reality, and finding beauty in the exhilarating uncertainty of it all.

VEAUX with Starboarders
Oct 6 @ 10:00 pm

Facebook Event

Nashville’s newest alt/pop trio, VEAUX, consists of brothers Aaron and Dominick Wagner and long-time friend Andrew Black. 
After playing music together off and on for years, the band finally took shape late one night in a hotel bar over a round of gin and tonics. 

Their newest single, “If You Could Feel My Love,’ embodies the frustration of constantly being on the wrong page with someone you’re trying to reconcile with. When words fail you and your only hope is that your actions speak louder.
The name VEAUX (pronounced “vō”), a colloquial French term for “commoner,” is a nod to the humble origins of the members and their desire to always stay true to who they are. Aaron Wagner has this to say on the subject: “When we look back on our lives as old men, I want to be able to say that we were true to ourselves. We spent years being paralyzed by fear and perfectionism, and we are finally in a place as a band and as a family to create honest art and let the chips fall where they may.”

The band is currently in the studio writing songs and booking shows across the country.
**************

Matt, Greg and Bill met in 2006. Over the course of several years Matt and Bill formed a bond musically and began pursuing music together. Working with several other local musicians, they gained some ground and saw the project begin to take shape. Hearing that Greg had played bass some years prior, they inquired about having him play with them as they were interested in starting a group that would get together and play music just for the fun of writing and working on the craft. Greg came in the first night and told them the story of him selling all his bass equipment some ten years prior. But immediately Bill and Matt were blown away by his bass playing – it brought a life to the music they were writing that had not yet been there. With the addition of Greg, they officially became Starboarders in 2009. Even during the first few rehearsals it was clear that they wanted to begin playing shows and did so in Knoxville, TN, Charlotte, NC and Nashville, TN. What had begun as a simple gathering of a few guys with a common desire to make music had become something much more. As they grew and matured in the music, they decided to begin working several songs up to make an EP. After meeting Yanic Bercier, who heard the Conversations EP, they were encouraged to take the work that had done on the EP and make a full length album CHROMA. After relocating to Atlanta, GA, the band expanded to include Cory Estes and Dan Snyder as well as several other amazing musicians. The collective of STARBOARDERS that plays with Matt often changes, but the music brings the same passion regardless of the players. Starboarders have played all over the country, but now are based in Charlotte, NC and are readying for the release of their 2nd full length album.

Barnaby Bright with Alan Black and Russell Howard
Oct 14 @ 7:30 pm

Both classically-trained, the duo has made some cool Americana records, lived in Brooklyn, Nashville and Kansas, toured coast to coast, run out of money, toured Europe, run out of money again, won high-falutin’ prizes for songwriting in New York, generally not argued, done benefit shows for prestigious US AAA radio stations, given away 200k+ tracks on Amazon, kept writing, built an audience, been named one of Amazon’s Top 100 albums of the year, eaten copious amounts of vegetarian food, attracted 17k+ listeners a month on Spotify and FINALLY made a record, ‘This is Life,’ coming in late 2016, which speaks to where they’ve been, who they are, what they want and where they’re going. It’s smart pop with an authentic Americana stamp, not the other way round. Oh yeah, somewhere in there they got married, but they’d rather not talk about that.

Coin
Oct 19 @ 8:00 pm

Never over-confident, COIN’s contagious exuberance braces every track.  Their acclaimed self-titled debut album was released in the summer of 2015, produced by Grammy nominated producer Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Sleeper Agent), establishing them as a unique band that was here to stay.  SPIN described them as ’Dream-pop joy…’  and the overwhelming reaction to their summer 2016 hit “Talk Too Much,” (which Chase describes as a song about his “inability to leave things unsaid,”)  perfectly teed up the new album, How Will You Know If You Never Try, and subsequent album teasers “I Don’t Wanna Dance,” “Malibu 1992,” and “Feeling.”

They’ve toured non-stop with acts such as Walk The Moon, Passion Pit, Young the Giant, Neon Trees and others, perfecting their sound and their charismatic live appeal.  Billboard hailed them as ‘new wave crash-course survivors,’ destined ‘to break the Nashville mold.’  SPIN, NYLON and Stereogum praised them as up-and-comers to watch, as their 2015 breakthrough hit “Run” became a heavy rotation pillar on Sirius XM radio’s Alt nation.  Snapchat included them in their ‘Best Of The Year’ artists’ list and The Atlantic cited them as one of their 21 bands to check out.  The group also became Festival favorites.

Tyler Hilton signed with Maverick Records and released The Tracks Of Tyler Hilton in September 2004. “I wrote all those songs when I was still in high school,” he says, “and I was very impressed that the songs I wrote while I was doing homework ended up being released on a major label. That was really exciting to me. I could have written those kinds of songs again, but I wanted to do better. And I think my new album is better.”

The Nude Party congealed as one unit in the southern mountain town of Boone, NC in 2013 and gained their namesake very literally. Bonded by isolation, house party debauchery, a religion based on pushing the limits of bad taste, and a precocious predisposition towards the Kinks, the Animals and the Velvets, they have burgeoned into a rock and roll act to be reckoned with. As the hysteria at their local shows steadily increases, so does their reputation with local law enforcement, forcing them daily more to seek employment anywhere but home. While snooping cops seeking to stamp out indiscriminate behavior scour the borders of their homestead the Nude Ranch, the group has prodigally exiled themselves and are staying scarce with a string of self booked tours and one night stands which have linked them up with with such likes as The Growlers, The Oblivians, La Luz, Night Beats, and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.

Their stripped down and bare bone sound, akin to the British Invasion being transplanted back into the Carolina mountains, has so far proven to have been unrecordable… until now. The secret? Sticking to the obvious and going down into a sweaty basement with a few mics, fewer clothes and a revolving door of comrades and goddesses falling by for as long as they can take the heat. Lately the Nudes have even gotten good at playing with their clothes on. However if any audience member feels the need to participate in the spirit of exhibitionism the stakes at the Party will unblinkingly be called and raised.

‘jangly power pop chords, three-part vocal harmonies, and the chillest of chill vibes. It’s enough to evoke the very height of summer’ – Collin Brennan, Consequence of Sound

‘Echo Courts spin the sound of their own happening shindig with the world premiere of ‘Fairview Place’ that coasts like a magic-shag-carpet ride into the sky’ – Sjimon Gompers, Impose Magazine

‘…Echo Courts skips through a grassy patch of ’90s New Zealand indie pop and the umph of that 20-something moment you first heard the Zombies’ – Eric Davidson, CMJ

Alt Nation Presents Big Data
Oct 27 @ 8:00 pm

BIG DATA is the paranoid pop brainchild of artist/producer, Alan Wilkis. With a healthy dose of distrust, Big Data’s music explores the relationship between man and machine, and the ways in which technology is reshaping the human experience.

In 2014, BD made waves with the #1 alternative hit, “Dangerous (feat. Joywave),” which has since been certified Gold in the US and Canada, and with nearly 40M streams. Big Data’s 2015 debut album, 2.0, featured collaborations with Kimbra, Rivers Cuomo, Twin Shadow, and Jamie Lidell.

3.0 is the long-awaited upgrade from Big Data. In creating 3.0, Wilkis became obsessed with the subject of artificial intelligence and its many possible applications in our not-too-distant future. While AI may become humanity’s greatest achievement, it carries with it a potential risk that is both existential and irreversible… one of many reasons why experts refer to AI as our “final invention.” This tension is both fascinating and terrifying all at once, and it is the chief inspiration behind Big Data’s latest effort.

Haunted Summer, Avi Buffalo
Oct 31 @ 7:30 pm

Haunted Summer:

The songs of Haunted Summer are dreamy and hypnotic, rich with orchestral strings and sultry electronic textures. With their previous EP, Something in the Water, the group crafted a captivating, ethereal musical journey through a nostalgic world of young love and long-forgotten memories. Consisting of husband-and-wife Bridgette Moody and John Seasons, who share songwriting duties in a true collaboration, the Los Angeles duo have shared the stage and toured with groups and performers including Taken By Trees, Islands, ‪Deafheaven‬, ‪The Polyphonic Spree‬, Coeur De Pirate, Olafur Arnalds, ‪Carla Morrison‬, Meiko, ‪Basia Bulat‬, Geographer, David J of Bauhaus and more. Their debut full-length, Spirit Guides (released on Sept 29th), was written on the road as well as recorded in several studios including Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree, Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood, Comp-ny LA, and studios owned by Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene, Oregon. It features an array of talented musicians, including (but not limited to!) ‪Dave Catching‬ from ‪Eagles of Death Metal‬ and ‪Chris Goss‬ from Masters of Reality (both of whom are on the title track). ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Avi Buffalo:

Ah, yes, age—much was made of it when Avi Buffalo’s first album hit the ground running, and for good reason: While his Millikan High School classmates were preoccupied with quaint and youthful pursuits, Avi Buffalo was busy making an off-kilter pop gem that eventually bowled over NME, The AV Club, Pitchfork, the BBC, and numerous other outlets on both sides of the Atlantic whose tastes are respected by the general public. Like a lot of kids his age, Avi celebrated the end of high school in Europe, but instead of visiting the Louvre and Buckingham Palace, their overseas journeys took them to the festival stages of Reading, Leeds, Glastonbury, the Pavement-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties in Minehead, and beyond. Buffalo is ready to take on the world (again), armed with all of the experience he’s compiled over the past few years. And he’s made sure this time around will be just as memorable as the first.
