Jeremy Cox and Jigmae Baer started ROYAL BATHS without a plan in mind but soon the foundation for their writing found inspiration from Cox’s interest in the alternate and open tunings of delta blues, their shared fascination in the African rhythm of early Chicago blues, and Baer lyrically attempting to reflect with black humor and little judgment, and the thrills and troubles they stumble through. Recording on whatever cheap four or single-track cassette recorder they could find, they eventually borrowed a Tascam 388 to make their first 7″. Their new album Better Luck Next Life is set to be released by Kanine Records on February 7, 2012. ROYAL BATHS “take cues from Neil Young’s lightning-struck guitar sermons and the Velvet Underground’s creeping paranoia” — PITCHFORK.
GANGLY YOUTH, is a 5 piece band from Louisville, Kentucky. Led by Dan Davis along with Brent Mills, Daniel Tilford, Ashley Urjil-Mills, and Nate Woodard, the band writes jangly, fuzzy, reverb soaked “pop” songs. Pulling from a wide array of influences and a very small amount of technical skill, GANGLY YOUTH applies a shared punk mentality and manages to make songs that are refreshing and new, yet familiar all the same.
