A couple weeks ago - before the world fell apart - we had WEND in studio for a short set. We were blown away by their ethereal and largely improvisational music. It's a perfect tonic for these anxiety-inducing times.
As a warm up for their 2020 Treefort set, He/lium She/lium stopped by the studio to lay down two live tracks. The energy of this performance makes their already infectious songs even more entrancing. We dare anyone to listen to "Priorities" and not have it stuck in their head for the next week.
We were honored to have Addam Chavarria and his band in the studio. In this set, they play from his heartwarming (and breaking) new album, Right Now. For more of Addam and his music visit: https://www.facebook.com/addamchavarriamusic/
An upstart in the Treasure Valley music scene, The Hollowed Collective specialize in elegant harmonies and spell-binding melodies. The three tunes they perform here show a band with the versatility to not only honor their folk/country roots, but also transcend them. It was a pleasure having them in the studio. Video available at www.lowergentrystudios.com
Nick Delffs's music - both as a solo artist and his work with The Shaky Hands - has been beguiling fans for over a decade. Here, he plays a striped-down, vital set of songs from across his catalog. For more of his music, visit http://www.mamabirdrecordingco.com/nick-delffs
For the first live performance in LowerGentry Studios, we were ecstatic that Sun Blood Stories accepted our invitation. Local and regional mainstays since 2011, Sun Blood Stories released their newest album, Haunt Yourself, in September 2019. On this episode, they play a selection of tracks from their visceral and muscular new record.
