Band In Seattle: Episode 304
Runtime: 23 minWild Powwers has more oomph than Ws in their name. Jordan Gomes is a beast on bass, Lupe Flores is the human embodiment of a kick drum, and Lara Hilgeman manages to channel riot girl and soul diva at the same time. It’s dark and heavy and dirty and magical. The three of them bring in all kinds of influences, but it all still manages to sound like the same band in every song, somehow. This trio – no, trifecta – has the prolific songwriting chops and hardworking road mentality that it takes to make it as a band. They’ve got a unique sound, great attitudes, and songs that get lodged in the deepest, darkest bits of your brain.

Band in Seattle: Episode 316
Runtime: 23 minMaszer – an amalgam of David “Stitcx” Rapaport’s guitar wizardry, Katie Blackstock’s haunting and sultry vocals, and Joe Braley’s ferocious drumming. It’s like they took all the deep thoughts you have at 4 am at Burning Man and made it into psychedelic rock and roll in the middle of the Mediterranean desert.

Band In Seattle Episode 204
The Young Evils
Runtime: 22 minThe Young Evils started out as a lighthearted Vaselines-inspired pop duo with Troy and his now wife MacKenzie Mercer.

Band in Seattle: Smokey Brights Episode 228
Runtime: 23 minWarm, vintage, pop savvy, yet slightly wry rock music. The kind that streams from the boombox all day at your uncle's barbecue, or crackles through the AM radio on an all night drive through some expansive American highway.
Band in Seattle: The Gods Themselves 218
The Gods Themselves
Runtime: 35 minThe Gods Themselves are reminiscent of the male/female vocals of talking heads built on a punk foundation, yet their music is a fluid, ever-evolving sound. Astra Elane’s newfound independence as a lead guitarist has led her to evolve into a confident, engaging front woman. While listening to the rhythmic punching of the drums and the laidback guitar styling, audiences can be found closing their eyes, and just grooving to the punk-pop melodies of The Gods Themselves.
