Little Tybee
Little Tybee
Little Tybee is a 6 piece band based in Atlanta, GA whose music has been described as genre bending and refreshing to both veteran and exploring ears. The core of each of their songs begins in the relentless and creative mind of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Brock Scott. The songs mature through the dedicated musicianship of 8-string guitarist Josh Martin, violinist Nirvana Kelly, bassist Ryan Donald, and percussionist Pat Brooks. Little Tybee isn’t afraid to experiment freely, even dangerously at times, to follow a musical idea to its ultimate end. This mentality has led the group to explore music that transcends genre and packs a much bigger punch than their modest title implies. Over the past few years they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Of Montreal, Kurt Vile, Here We Go Magic, Rising Appalachia, Macy Gray, Reptar, Sondre Lerche, Nicole Atkins, Man Man, Kishi Bashi, and a number of others. Notable performances included SXSW, CMJ, Pop Montreal, Floydfest, Rombello Cruise, Hillstock Festival, and Multiverse Playground.

Wes Swing
The new full-length album And The Heart [out June 2] is a blend of Wes Swing's literary songwriting with production and analog electronics by Paul Curreri. The album is about darkness and light, sadness and joy, and looking for beauty and connection. Using deliberately sparse and stark instrumentation, sections of intimate and personal performance transition into electronic escapades and flourishing full-band crescendos. With this album, Swing takes another step into the avant-garde of alternative folk and indie-pop.

"The compositions, pieced together very carefully, are orchestral without orchestra. They are movements, and they are moving. They take place in that grey area between pop and symphonic. They are surreal and sometimes eerie but also grounded enough that they are not wisps. I was surprised when I first heard them. Everyone who knew him had talked cello, not voice, so when his (basically) alto vocals took precedence, it took me aback. Songs written for aura and feel, couched in just the right amount of electronica with pieces of folk/psych and rock thrown in almost as afterthought.

And The Heart is Wes Swing at his present day creative best, most of it over a bedrock of acoustic guitar with fringes of violin and cello. That and his voice--- that eerily beautiful, wavering voice." - No Depression
