Tobin Sprout

Painter, illustrator, author, songwriter and former Guided By Voices guitarist, TOBIN SPROUT reinvents his craft with a stark and poignant solo album, Empty Horses, a dramatic and unexpected departure from his previous work. The album is a meticulously observed study of America and Americana (not the music, but the state of mind). An alternative American Songbook, if you will, a collection of laments to simpler times and the struggle for what’s right, peppered with an examination of faith and the search for a sense of justice.  In Guided By Voices, (1986-1997, 2011-2014) Sprout penned classic songs including "Atom Eyes", "It’s Like Soul Man", “Gleemer", "A Good Flying Bird", "14 Cheerleader Coldfront”, and released solo albums on Matador, Burger and Fire Records.  On tour, Sprout will be joined by his longtime band with Tommy Schichtel, Steve Vermillion and Gary Vermillion.

Empty Horses (Fire Records): 

“The perfect aural encapsulation of melancholy: in turns somnambulant, romantic and all-consuming”  Rolling Stone

 “A great pop song writer”  Uncut

 “Crumpled yet precise, confronting American Ghosts”  ★★★★ Mojo

 "Songwriting of this quality, with powers of suggestion and intimations of doubt, deserves an audience well beyond the historically-inclined.”  The Line Of Best Fit

 “Gorgeous” Aquarium Drunkard

Kiwi Jr.

Toronto indie rock phenoms KIWI JR. released their amazing second album Cooler Returns on Sub Pop Records in January 2021. 

"Kiwi Jr. songs unfold like the aisles of a cluttered curio shop, their retro-rock melodies overflowing with non sequiturs and hyper-specific scraps of story." - AV Club

"An impatient, slacker-rock imagining of a folk album....some chords ring out with George Harrison glossiness while others are as shaggy and impetuous as The Clean —rarely do hi-fi and lo-fi splendors coexist so harmoniously." -  Pitchfork 

"A jangly, indie rock earworm that’ll lodge itself in your brain" -  NME

The Boomies

New group from Stephen Orban, Kevin Krauter and friends. Their debut release "Start A Band" is filled with nuggets of lo-fi but highly-accessible jangly garage pop pouring out of a dusty speaker.
