Half Gringa
Half Gringa
Half Gringa is the songwriting project of Izzy Olive.
An emotional scab-picker, her work explores the confluence of Latinx and Midwestern identity. Her first LP, Gruñona, reveals a palimpsest of wounds upon scars. Contemplative and choleric, all manner of memorials to the past are revealed—mountains, dive bars, orchards, trains, expressways, tiny kitchens, Chicago, Caracas, and outer space. With a full band, Half Gringa's debut coaxes confession after confession out of Olive's insistent guitar and undaunted vocals; Andres Fonseca's tender bass lines; Sam Cantor's impish, mesmerizing guitar; and crowned by Ivan Pyzow's trumpet swagger. Simultaneously boastful, scathing, forgiving, and hopeful, Gruñona confronts the human ache of wanting and curse of taking. It recognizes that an identity is a journey that names you.
Heavy Looks
Heavy Looks
Heavy Looks are an aggressive power pop band based out of Madison, WI. Rosalind Greiert, Dirk Gunderson, Jarad Olson, and Shawn Pierce have been breathing music for the better parts of most of their lives. In 2014, the band released their debut EP, Sense Growing Dull, and made their presence known in the Madison music scene. They have shared stages with acts like Young Jesus, Quarterbacks, Sweet Spirit, and Archie Powell & the Exports. Live, the band's an energetic force, trading vocal leads with ease and tapping into something that feels genuinely powerful. In December 2015, the band released their first full-length, Waste It Right, which is available for download through their website.
