Falling somewhere between rock, jazz and electronic mayhem we find space rock. This is a genre that is not readily defined, and is a state of mind as much as it could be considered a genre. This range of frequencies is where Papadosio tends to spend their time, sometimes dining in deep space, and other times snacking right on your front porch. Papadosio strives to create music that is strangely familiar, and calls all walks of humanity to bask in a unique experience celebrating the one constant in an ever changing world: music.

Higher Learning

Tearing through space and time in a rickety Moog-powered spaceship, Higher Learning is well on their way towards the outer reaches of Jupiter. Armed only with the spirit of exploration and a container full of party favors, the four psychonauts from the streets of Atlanta, GA gaze through the haze of the cockpit out into the little-known expanse of our fine universe. Their mission, daunting as it may be, is simple at its core: to distill the cosmos into sound. Their natural abilities to endure long periods of isolation and odd sleep schedules have enabled them to strive towards this goal with unbridled tenacity. From their collectively-twisted mind comes a sonic stew composed of liberal portions of analogue and digital frequencies - grounded for your pleasure by the familiar sounds of a live four-piece band. HL cordially invites you to join them on their interstellar adventures forward into the great wide yonder. Planets will turn, stars will die, and new stars will be born. Only one thing is for sure - you will want to hear it all.

Hive Mind

Hive Mind is a live electronic collaboration between four of Atlanta’s familiar faces. Dan Cox of EP3, Dave McSweeney of Greenhouse Lounge, and Rohan Prakash + Niles Roberts of Higher Learning joined forces in late 2017. They put the primary focus on improvisation, and complement the excursions with tight, competent songs and enough turn arounds to keep things interesting. While this project is just growing roots, the members (in other projects) have each performed countless shows coast to coast, both headlines and support, with acts like STS9, Bassnectar, The Disco Biscuits, Pretty Lights, and many more.
