An evening of music at Company Brewing featuring:
Rose of the West [Milwaukee, WI]: roseofthewest.com
«Rose of the West loosely threads dark and brooding strands throughout its newest songs to bind its temperate-but-temperamental style of pop. The result is a beautifully structured, soft-blooming, Technicolor Lynchian dreamscape with just the right amount of sparkle amidst the dark shadows to catch the eye. Are you awake or still sleeping? Are these thoughts your own or are they driven by the characters who populate your dreams?
Driving these hazy dream-currents of music are frosty synths, radiant warmth from guitar and piano, nimble bass lines and a tempestuous, gutsy kick from clear-cut percussion. Rose of the West leader, Gina Barrington, brings it all together with her crystalline-but-sultry vocals, twisting and turning lyrics over like talismans. And no matter how dark, Barrington’s most desolate words always seem to hold the possibility of turning those single sparks into bright flames.»
Moon Ruin [Peoria, IL]: moonruinmusic.com/
“Moon Ruin is the new music project of Peoria, IL songwriter, Jared Bartman. Ephemeral yet timeless, it is the home where Bartman's new record, 'Slow Down Ego', can find repose. Having released music under his namesake for ten years, the move to Moon Ruin is a throwing off of preconceived notions and the pressure of expectation. Engineered over the course of two years with producers Mike Noyce (Bon Iver, The Tallest Man on Earth, Aero Flynn) and Liam O'Brien (Liam O'Brien's Faithless Followers, Holy Sheboygan), ‘'Slow Down Ego' sees release on vinyl LP via Dilated Time Records and all digital services on April 6, 2018. Moon Ruin will tour the US in 2018 in a full band format featuring Mike Noyce and Dave Power (The Staves, Aero Flynn), and Brian Wells."
