|Colonial Drug — A
virtual pandemic group consisting of Mark McCracken (vocals) and Amy
Hall (drums) and Mike Nicholson on guitar and keyboards. Mike &
Mark's songwriting partnership goes back their high school days and
they decided to rekindle their collaborative arrangement for a
collection of 10 songs that evoke the best of 1970's excess and
bombast. Glam, rock, psychedia. Imagine David Bowie, Wings, Queen, Pink
Floyd & Thin Lizzy all in one giant cauldron of sound.
|Arrow Beach — Glammy
art-pop that is equal parts Pixies and Big Star. Daring vocals,
indelible melodies, fiery guitar playing and epic rhythms. Eclectic and
challenging but still melodic and hummable pop-rock songs. Juicy Fruit
Castle is the newest release which dropped, sadly, at the start of the
great Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020.
|Mike Nicholson — Musician,
Producer, Engineer, Composer Mike Nicholson releases his debut on New
Atlas in the Summer of 2019. Surfy guitarscapes melded with techno-pop
and ambient textures and then exploding into full out ROCK! Like Dick
Dale hanging with Kraftwerk while Phillip Glass buys the drinks.
|Penelope Cruisecontrol — Surfy
guitar intrumentals are just the starting point but elements of funk,
world, acid-jazz, punk rock, metal, and other bits and bobs are stirred in for a
bouillabaisse of instumental excitement!
|The X-Rayons — On and off again "Atmosurf" instrumental guitar music from the minds and fingers of Steve Carr and Brunson Hoole. Recorded by Mitch Easter in 1999, their eponymous debut is a cult classic of "progressive surf". Surf, spaghetti western, r&b, lounge, rock & rockabilly influences meld together for maximum guitar insanity.|
