Band In Seattle: Episode 218

Jupe Jupe & The Gods Themselves

Year: 2016

Runtime: 00:22:19

The 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.
My Young creates a characterization of himself in every performance. He and his band mates make up a quartet of cerebral musicians whose sound is self-described as “mournful dance, new wave music”. Young’s rich vocals are suggestive of a Depeche Mode sound, but then it stands on a foundation of heavy synth, rough guitar, and pounding drum lines. Coupled with Young’s pointed lyrics, Jupe Jupe has discovered a whole new sound for their Pacific Northwest audience.

    InCahoots & Spellcaster

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 23 min

    Finding a rock band in Seattle these days is a bit of an oddity, but one with catchy and infectious songs that stick in your head is rarer still. Seattle Washington's InCahoots is exactly that kind of band. They will be releasing their 4th album in March, Dogland which was recorded at the legendary Hall of Justice Studios with producer Andy Park.
    This feisty quartet, is lead by guitar-wielding chanteuse Christina Crammer — a vigilant disciple of Joan Jett, Chrissie Hynde and Debbie Harry. Christina's soaring vocals have a beautiful mix of "vixen and venom" that highlight her clever songwriting skills. The other members of InCahoots (Rich Huston on bass, Brad Judy on lead guitar, and Dave Crossett on drums) provide a solid background to the mixture of old-school punk and classic-rock riffage — the songs setup her sing-along choruses in a powerful way.
    Hailing from the rain soaked streets of Portland, OR, Spellcaster has been hard at work making a name for themselves since the summer of 2009. The online release of their first demo, Spells of Speed, in February 2010 caught the eye of New York label Heavy Artillery Records, leading to their first record deal in April of the same year.
    With the re-release of Spells of Speed via Heavy Artillery, the band began their first North American tour in October 2010, quickly followed by the release of their debut Under the Spell in 2011. Rigorous touring ensued as the band crossed the country promoting their music for the following 2 years. Sometime in 2012 a wall was hit, and it became apparent that a lineup change was imminent.
    In early 2013, vocalist Thomas Adams and drummer Shad Covert departed the band, leading guitarist Tyler Loney to assume lead vocals duties. Guitarist Bryce R. VanHoosen and drummer Colin Vranizan were enlisted to complete the lineup. Shortly after, the band began writing their self-titled sophomore album, which – aside from a two-week west coast tour in summer – took up the entirety of 2013.
    In December of the same year, the band entered Falcon & Audiosiege Studios in Portland, with Toxic Holocaust front man Joel Grind co-producing and engineering. After 3 months of constant tracking and mixing, their entirely self-funded album was completed in February. With their second album now complete, the band is preparing a thorough touring cycle throughout 2015 and the following year.

    Planes on Paper:

    If you took the stage presence and theatrics of Devo and David Bowie, the spaghetti western themes of Ennio Morricone, and a voice deeper than Johnny Cash, then you’ve got Brent Amaker and the Rodeo. They’re an actual Tarantino movie in music form. Stetsons and all, this troupe of cowboys are in a league all their own. You’d be hard up to find a band around here that puts on more of a show than Brent Amaker and the Rodeo.

    Fysah & Vox Mod

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 22 min

    Self-described as the black baby of Amy Winehouse and Adele, Fysah’s voice is a delicate combination of soul, pop, and indie rock. Backed by a keyboardist raised in the gospel sounds of the church and a bassist steeped in funk and RNB, the final sound created is rich in emotion and personality.
    Abstraction is at the core of electronic musician Vox Mod’s creations. Every aspect of his performance is a study of who he is, not only as a musician, but as a designer and illustrator as well. His performances engage the senses of sight as well as sound, utilizing costumes and visual projections to heighten the submersion of the audience into his world of spirituality.

    Jessica Lynne

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 40 min

    Sometimes authentic country music artists do not grow up in what we would consider hotbeds of country music. Sometimes they grow up in Haslev, Denmark, the native town of current Seattle resident, Jessica Lynne, a sensational and rising country star and one of London Tone Music’s most successful artists. She explains how it all started: “When I was 12, I was home with the flu and our TV provider had a “chance channel” available for a limited time. Well, this time it was CMT and being at home with nothing to do and feeling really horrible, I just kind of left it on that channel and little by little just fell in love with the genre.” Faith Hill’s, Wild One, a song that was #1 at the time, inspired her immediately. “I felt like she was singing about me,” she remembers. “It touched my heart in a way that I had never felt before.”

    Posse is so unbelievably cool. With dreamy soundscapes and stark, deadpan vocals, Posse makes perfect rainy day music. They write the kind of songs that would honestly fit well over some self-effacing John Cusack monologue. Their sound is signature Seattle, but not pretentious in the slightest. With lyrics so layered and melodies so subtle, Posse’s songs take up a lot of real estate in your brain and refuse to leave.

    The Fame Riot is clearly one of the best bands to emerge from the Seattle scene. Beyond the look & the youthful swagger, they provide great music and great entertainment. In a 2013 Sound Off interview, Shazzam Watkins and Liz Scarlett described their music as “a soup that never stops cooking but you can try it any time you like.” Their quest to create infectiously danceable, yet credible glam pop-rock is a dream fulfilled, because at this fortuitous age they have the talent to go out on a limb with their dandy style and driving music.

    There’s a song that Evening Bell plays, called “Dust Storm,” which says way more about their music than anything else. When one hears Evening Bell, it’s hard not to picture a tumble weed skimming around a desert somewhere in Tucson circa whenever John Wayne was a movie star. It’s vintage Americana at its finest, but with a dark and psychedelic twist – music fit for a ghost town overtaken by Saguaro cacti, and perhaps cows.
