New Madrid

“Compact in some ways, yet expansive,” is how New Madrid's Phil McGill describes their new album. magnetkingmagnetqueen (Normaltown Records) takes a wide swath of influences ranging from the guitar tangle of Television and the tripped-out introspection of Yo La Tengo, to the angular experimentation of Can and the harmonic bath of Magical Mystery Tour; and combines them into something entirely unique. magnetkingmagnetqueen has it all. The album reveals New Madrid’s evolution and collective growth, resulting in the band’s most complete work to date. “Don’t Hold Me Now” is like Pylon channeling the pre- Tommy Who. “Untitled III” is a pint-sized epic, with several movements in a three-minute window. On the other end is the dark, monolithic stomp of “Guay Lo” and the dirge-like march of “Shades.” Bringing it all together are centerpieces like “Summer Belles” and “Darker Parts,” songs with an undeniable pop sensibility that go through the looking glass and emerge as the sonic amoeba well known to fans of New Madrid’s live performances. magnetkingmagnetqueen was made with engineer/producer David Barbe (Deerhunter, Drive-By Truckers, The Glands) in two primary locations. The group started out recording at Dogwood Lodge, the site of an unused summer camp on Lake Chickamauga in a large, open room with mobile recording gear over a week in the summer of 2015. More recording and mixing was done at Barbe’s Athens, GA studio, Chase Park Transduction with additional recording at New Madrid’s home base, The Barn. New Madrid formed in the fall of 2010, and shortly after was approached by Barbe, who invited them to his studio to record their first full-length album, Yardboat. It happened fast. Inspired, they finished in three days. Signing with Normaltown/New West Records, the band released their sophomore album, Sunswimmer in 2014. A live EP, Dawn Teeth Rattling, was released in 2015. Since then the band has toured consistently across the U.S., Canada, and Europe. When not on the road, they live together in The Barn (a literal barn located in the agrarian outskirts of Athens) constantly working on new ideas. magnetkingmagnetqueen is due out April 29, 2016.

Rose Hotel

BIO Rose Hotel began simply. It was the phrase on the cover of a notebook — an arbitrary title — that gave a home to the ideas songwriter Jordan Reynolds had been working on in her spare time. After the band Reynolds had spent the last five years touring with dissolved, she found her pastime project becoming her main focus and passion. With the ample personal time such changes can create, Reynolds channeled her experiences into a six-song collection that celebrates independence and pays homage to a lineage of influencers including Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling, and Jessica Pratt. Rose Hotel’s lush and intimate EP, Always Good Reason, dropped in the late summer of 2017. Now based in Atlanta, GA - Reynolds has joined forces with a crew of local players (Tyler Jundt, John Restivo, Vinny Restivo, Mike Varner), evolving from the solo project of a songwriter cutting her teeth, to the fleshed-out sound of a tight 5-piece indie rock outfit. Rose Hotel is taking new form. Deriving influence from the seventies folk-tinged soft rock of artists like The Carpenters and Carole King, as well as the dark and dreamy tones of modern alt-indie, Rose Hotel is both hushed and roaring, delicate and powerful, and won’t be pigeonholed into your stereotypical “female-fronted indie rock” category. The band plans to release music in 2018.
