Slow Club
"Could they be the UKs answer to The White Stripes? Charles And Rebecca Are Slow Club. They hail from Sheffield and are a sort of one man band. Only with two people. He strums guitar and sings and she plays drums and all sorts of weird instruments, like water-filled glass bottles, spoons and the back of a wooden chair. And sometimes an organ called MIles. Not something you get to see and hear every day. The effect is rockabilly and somewhat folksy but thankfully their songs are fairly jolly affairs without a bit of teenage angst in sight. Slow Club are touring - don't miss them" [The Independant On Sunday]

"Slow Club are another boy/girl duo but instead of valium'd-up rock n'roll they make sacharine folk-pop that turns your usually miserable scribe into a radiant ray of positivity. Like, I almost smiled and everything. They're on tour with Tiny Dancers in June"

"Slow Club inject a simple joy and uncomplicatedness into their work which is completely compelling"
[Music Week Playlist]
Air Waves - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Air Waves
Nicole first found solace in her guitar, composing escapist songs with fantastical stories and catchy choruses. Having since teamed up with Dave Ferraro and Ryan Trott, Nicole is a stage veteran. In 2006 they took on the name Air Waves. She has played with many well-known musicians such as Cat Power, Cass McCombs, the Rapture and more. A medley of folk, rock and country, Nicole serves up imagery with such unforgettable melodies that you will catch yourself, hours later, singing about.

"Nicole Schneit is an amazing songwriter. The music she writes is like a favorite blanket wrapped around you. Drummer Dave Ferraro complements her songs well. "Shine On" is my current favorite song by them." Dan Deacon
Hurry - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Philadelphia-based Hurry began less as a band and more as a man singing songs to himself alone in his darkened apartment. "Was a cat there, too?" Oh, yes--there was a cat there, too. Up until recently, Hurry consisted exclusively of that one man--Matthew Scottoline (of Philadelphia's Everyone Everywhere)--joined by a revolving group of friends for performances, but recording and writing and basically doing all of the work himself. "So nobody else should get any credit for that stuff?" No! Just Matt!

Hurry, which cites influences in Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub, Weezer, and Dinosaur Jr, remained a solo project until now. Or, well, until recently. Scottoline finally secured bandmates in cousins Rob and Joe Decarolis, and they join him on Hurry's debut LP, Everything/Nothing. Stereogum calls the album's first single "Oh Whitney" "simple, direct, and catchy as hell." Uproxx Music called it "refreshing as a fuzzed-out drink in a Death to False Metal desert." XPN's The Key called it, "the first single from [Everything/Nothing]." And if you don't want to believe those guys, I don't know what to tell you.
