Ages and Ages
Ages and Ages
Ages and Ages began in the winter of 2009, when singer/guitarist Tim Perry set out to assemble a band large enough to pull off every intricate detail of even the most heavily layered arrangements in a live setting. Starting with Daniel Hunt on Drums, Kate O'Brien-Clarke on keys/strings, and Rob Oberdorfer on bass, AaA grew fast until it peaked at seven members strong. Perry even enlisted the talents of childhood friend, Graham Mackenzie, who uprooted from his home in NYC to join the band in its rainy Portland town. There, the rest of the band shared in their affinity for complex vocal harmonies, rounds, call and response, and a whole lot of percussion, which became apparent as the band continued to amass a catalogue of songs in which everybody played multiple roles.

In early 2010, Ages and Ages enlisted the help of Kevin Robinson (Viva Voce, Blue Giant) to record/produce a six song EP in exchange for a case of beer. Robinson held true to their live aesthetic (though he eventually raised the price for his services) utilizing minimal tracks and even less takes to capture their sound. Soon after, Knitting Factory Records got a hold of their recordings and expressed an interest in signing the band but suggested that they turn their EP into a full length. AaA obliged and by that summer had completed their first album. "Alright, You Restless" is set for release on KFR in early 2011.

Musical Charis
Retro-Inspired Folk Rock darlings of Sacramento, CA attribute their signature male/female vocal stylings to a modern Fleetwood Mac, with a family-style vibe comparable to the eclectic culture of the Grateful Dead. Their live show is like slamming poprox and soda while cuddling up with a Dr. Suess book as audience members are encouraged to participate with drums, tambourines & sing-a-longs. With 3 albums and several national tours under their belt, Musical Charis is a tall drink of water in a dry spell of musical monotony.

"They manage to infuse a pop sensibility into a big-band style of writing...you have nine different instruments harmonizing together, and it's this accessibility that makes Musical Charis a standout."-Absolute Punk.net
