This year has been an impressive one for the Nashville five-piece, who released their Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Emmylou Harris)-produced debut album August 13th via Warner Bros Records. They have played well over 200 shows, with Gary Clark Jr, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Dawes, Dwight Yoakam and ZZ Ward,.and more, and stopped at the Austin City Limits festival,  San Francisco's Outside Lands, Sasquatch and Hangout Festivals, Milwaukee's Summerfest, Louisville's Forecastle Festival and Nashville's Live on the Green. The Wild Feathers performed their acclaimed single "The Ceiling," which the Minneapolis Star Tribune called "perhaps the most elegantly crafted song of the year" on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and the track just won the Sirius Spectrum Award for Best Song Discovery.

Amazon has selected The Wild Feathers for their "Rising Stars of 2014" campaign, which runs from December 25th to January 31stThe program features a free download of the band's new single "Got It Wrong," which they performed on Rachael Ray December 10th.  

Critical response to The Wild Feathers has been effusive. Rolling Stone declared the album "something that fans of heartland artists like the Avett Brothers and My Morning Jacket will appreciate while it recalls the magic of Tom Petty and Neil Young," Relix called it "boisterous and impassioned, reverberating with a raw, live quality," Baeble Music said, "Electrifying, soul stirring, and utterly reverent rock and roll...they're The Wild Feathers and they're pretty much here to kick your ass," and  the NY Daily News gave the album four stars, declaring "the Feathers have the vulnerability and beauty of the Jayhawks...the chemistry they found has the 'eureka' effect of the great American harmony-rock bands, from Buffalo Springfield to Poco."

Gramatik FREE Mixtape Download or Stream #NCMF #FreeDownload

Releases Brand-New Mixtape


Available For Free Download - HERE

Stream SB4 - HERE

While we anxiously await for The Age Of Reason album release, Gramatik gives away 22 tracks, including a free mix tape to hold us over until fall. "Street Bangerz 4" is a compilation of leftover tracks from SB1 featuring Gramatik's classic sound back when he was known for producing simple and raw, sample-based hip-hop beats. 

As Gramatik prepares for the second part of his upcoming Age Of Reason Tour, he unleased the album's second single, "You Don't Understand" and announced an additional Halloween show teaming up with GRiZ to play the biggest GrizMatik show to date at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, ColoradoThe Massacre Begins will feature support by turntablist A-Trak along with guitarist Don Daro of Exmag, who will also be joining Gramatik on tour this fall. General tickets for The Massacre Begins are now on sale.

In hype of the forthcoming album, Gramatik explains how he differs from the vast majority of electronic musicians as he records using live instruments while striving to make dance music that tells a story. During a recent interview with Relix Magazine, he states, "There's a lot of guitar, bass, piano, all types of organs, lots of original vocals - more than any other record I've ever produced. [The Age of Reason] combines all the genres I've been producing since the beginning in the most drastic, neurotic, cohesive and outrageous way imaginable."

See below for Gramatik's upcoming fall tour dates on the Age of Reason Tour and check out his remaining festival dates including New York City's Electric Zoo and America's first Tomorrowland festival, TomorrowWorld.

Shows on Our Radar: March Fourth & Jonas Friddle at Martyr's 6/8


Fri, Jun 8 




Are you a fan of Chi-town's Mucca Pazza?   Ever watch Portlandia?   March Fourth is Portland's punk rock marching band and they're marching forth to entertain YOU, right here in the windy city.   Check 'em out.   My little sis lives in Portland and has been a fan for years.   She was born on March 4th and every year the band throws down a big show on their namesake day and invites everyone who shares that birthday to get in free.   So basically they've been playing her birthday bash for years!   Fun fun.  We'll be there to shoot the show and can't wait to check em out at Martyr's.   Here's the March Fourth site.


Here's what Martyr's site has to say:

March Fourth Marching Band
Throw up your batons! Toss about that pocket-stored confetti! Let the high steppin’, flair totin’ cyclone of happiness begin!” -San Francisco Bay GuardianMarchFourth Marching Band (known as M4 by fans) is a large band and performance troupe from Portland, OR that was formed in 2003. M4 is hard to describe and, though the music can stand alone, the live show is unparalleled, unexpected, and uplifting.MarchFourth Marching Band connects with so many different types of audiences that they have been invited to play a huge variety of events over the past seven years–everything from the music festival main stage to the elementary school gymnasium to the streets of a town near you.

Jonas Friddle & the Majority
Jonas Friddle & The Majority arrived on the scene simultaneously debuting two records on March 24th, 2012. “Belle De Louisville” and “Synco Pony” showcase this seven-piece band’s ability to pull from both the string band and blues traditions of American Roots music. The Chicago-based “orchestral folk” group is comprised of a string section, brass, organ, banjo and drums. Each member of the Majority boasts a strong personal music career with close ties to Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music, where the band formed.Jonas Friddle’s passion for old-time style banjo from his native North Carolina leads to rhythmic and rolling compositions. Following the example of new folk groups like Crooked Still, Abigail Washburn and Old Crow Medicine Show, Jonas looks for a new take on an old sound. 

We're fans of local fav, Jonas Friddle, too.    He played the Beat Kitchen Concerts for Kids series we sponsor with our alt-punk-parenting blog, ChiIL Mama.   This show's for the big kids, though, AKA:  adults (21+).   

Check out Jonas Friddle & the Majority's main site right here.   Sign up for their mailing list and you can get two tunes FREE from their dual album release.   Way to make an entrance!
