Electric Citizen
Electric Citizen
After bursting to the American heavy rock forefront with their 2014 debut album, Sateen, Cincinnati four-piece Electric Citizen are ready for a Higher Time. Their second album for RidingEasy, a breakout moment for the band as a whole and for vocalist Laura Dolan, who stands tall in the spotlight throughout “Evil,” “Misery Keeper” and the rest of Higher Time, rising to the occasion of a fuller, bigger sound and meeting the memorable riffing of husband/guitarist Ross Dolan head on with already-stuck-in-your-head hooks and a fiery, passionate delivery.

Like its predecessor, Higher Time was recorded at The Diamonds studio in Cincinnati by Brian Olive (The Greenhornes, Dan Auerbach, Dr. John, etc.), and in search of an even more expansive feel, Laura, Ross and Brian traveled to mix alongside Black Keys engineer Collin Dupuis at Easy Eye in Nashville, TN. The results speak for themselves. In Laura’s performance and in the multi-faceted approach of Ross alongside bassist Randy Proctor and drummer Nate Wagner, Electric Citizen branch out with stage-born assurance across a collection of definitive rock ‘n’ roll. It is a bold, complete sound that sacrifices nothing of the band’s on-stage energy and clearly demonstrates that while their progression has been quick, it’s been hard won the traditional way: They worked their collective ass off.

“We chose producer Brian Olive because he's an excellent musician with a great ear for rock ‘n’ roll, and a good friend that we trust,” notes Laura. The dividends of that trust can be heard in “Ghost of Me,” the rolling “Natural Law” or “Devils in the Passing Time,” as Electric Citizen brazenly refuse to be pigeonholed and craft a style that, like every stage they step onto, is completely their own.

Electric Citizen spread their name far and wide on tours with Fu Manchu, Wolfmother, Budos Band and Pentagram for Sateen. Look for them to support Higher Time on the road in North America and Europe throughout 2016 and beyond.

Calliope
Calliope
Calliope is a four-piece guitar/drum/bass/organ-driven rock band that was forged between the forces of the sun and the moon in a riverwest basement sometime during the year of our lord, 2010. With a little help from cheddar cheese blocks and a variety of tall boys, Calliope's sound has evolved into a dynamic and eclectic blend of original rock with dark shades of psychedelia and groove.
Vanishing Kids
Vanishing Kids
VK formed in 2000 by Nikki Drohomyreky and Jason Hartman. Brought together by a mutual love of varying styles of original music. The early years leaned towards weird post punk, shoegaze and progressive rock. The later years see a more psychedelic influence.

House of Lud
House of Lud
House of Lud started as a recording project for Troy Peterson (Kleptix, Xenocom, Daggermouth) but after having modest success with the album of the same name, Peterson had to take House of Lud out of the basement. He recruited Justin Taylor (Awesome Car Funmaker) and Chris Norris (Xenocom) to help make this studio project a live act. Not one for subtlety or nuance, House of Lud is to intricate songcraft what a heavyweight boxer is to classical piano. The men of Lud are off to work, and the only tool in their bucket is a hammer. Crushing riffs repeat, working their way into your psyche. Somehow through all of the blunt riffery and towering amps, the songs manage to find hooks, The tones mangled and raw, but pleasing. The music is felt more than heard. House of Lud is pleasant like a storm, like a natural disaster.
