    Trails and Ways

    Trails and Ways make bossanova dream pop from a bedroom studio in Oakland, CA. After graduating from UC Berkeley, lead singers Emma Oppen and Keith Brower Brown took off–one to Brazil and the other to Spain. Both learned the new territory and languages through nylon strings and percussion. After months abroad, they came home with a vision; to craft a sound with the pensive warmth of Brazilian jazz, the tight songcraft of Latin pop, and the hypnotic rough edges of basement dream pop. The two female and two male members of Trails and Ways all sing, braiding their voices down landscapes of tight percussion, reverbed guitar hooks and tidal synthesizers. The lyrics are political graffiti and lovers’ unsaid conversations, crossing at the borders between Spanish, Portuguese and English. The band makes its home in Oakland’s tight-knit scene of jazz pop experimenters and R&B producers. They play visceral shows powered by the force of their four matching crystals: amethyst, agate, larimar, turquoise. Through 2012, they rode a swell of singles and covers, and are currently working on their debut album.

    So Many Wizards

    What makes So Many Wizards a band to watch is its off-kilter sense of melody and song structure. Lead single “Inner City” has a caffeinated, pogo-stick verse melody catchier than most bands’ sharpest choruses; the trippy, inward gem “Best Friends” unwinds deceptively sophisticated chord changes while Kazerouni demonstrates his sweetest falsetto—it’s a heartfelt plea for an idyllic romance, as innocently sweet as a second grader’s Crayola-penned birthday card (“I don’t care what we do / Don’t care, as long as there’s a park and then a bench for two / I don’t care what we do / And as long as we can sit”).

    Cheers Elephant

    Dubbed, “Chew it up, Spit it out, Rock and Roll”, Cheers Elephant is a tight, rootsy, psychedelic poprock quartet from Philadelphia, PA. Digging deep into three part harmonies and pop song arrangements, Cheers has a sound that’ll make your dad’s toe tap, your mom’s hip shake, and your sister’s heart throb. And the live show? Some say it's something close to the devil, God, or cocaine. In 2012, the band released their third album Like Wind Blows Fire. The record was extremely well received as it charted well on the CMJ indie charts . The track 'Leaves' hit #4 on Hype Machine and featured on We Are Hunted, NPR, Ex.FM, Good Music All Day, and Spotify. Cheers has shared the stage with acts like Mayer Hawthorne, Rubblebucket, The Go! Team, The Walkmen, Darwin Deez, Jefferson Starship, The Mother Hips, and more. So, why not take a sip of Cheers Elephant? The buzz is good.
