Hundred Waters are a band originally from Gainesville, Florida, whose soft combination of organic and electronic attracted the most unlikely of label bosses, superstar DJ Skrillex. Members Nicole Miglis, Trayer Tryon, and Zach Tetreault played together in various formations as friends back in middle school, but it took until adulthood and 2011 for them to become Hundred Waters.
Hundred Waters will release their third full-length album, “Communicating”, the follow up to 2014’s “The Moon Rang Like A Bell”, on September 14th, 2017. 2017 has already been a busy year for Hundred Waters, surprise-releasing their “Currency EP” in May as well as curating and hosting the fourth edition of their annual FORM Arcosanti Music Festival in Arizona. This year’s FORM lineup included Solange, Skrillex, Father John Misty, Future Islands, Mitski, and many more critically acclaimed artists, including Hundred Waters themselves.
//TANK AND THE BANGAS//
Tank and the Bangas took the world by storm after being selected as the winners of NPR’s 2017 Tiny Desk Concert Contest. Originating in New Orleans, Tank and The Bangas have all the qualities that relate them to the city that birthed them, but a flair that separates them as well. Their performances range from being “One of the most energetic shows you’ll ever see” to “A gospel tent in Mississippi”. Rummaging through their sound like a thrift store hippie, you’ll find the Bangas provoke a musical reference of Rhythmic Soul and Spoken word among other genres such as Rock, Gospel, Funk, and Folk.
Hop Along has had multiple lives. First conceptualized as a freak-folk solo act by Frances Quinlan, it progressed towards a fuller sound with the addition of Mark Quinlan on drums, Tyler Long on bass and Joe Reinhart on guitar. Emerging as one of music’s most unique songwriters, the captivating vignettes Frances has weaved tell vivid stories of desperation and weary awakening. Her powerful voice is a spellbinding entity all it’s own, celebratory and raw, and one that can’t be shaken away.
