FEVER FEEL
FEVER FEEL
SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE, THE DEBUT SINGLE FROM VICTORIA BC’S FEVER FEEL IS STEEPED IN ANTICIPATION. INFUSED WITH THE HAZY WASH OF 60’S PSYCHEDELIA, THE DYNAMIC MELODIES, MINDFUL COMPOSITION, AND POWERFUL PERFORMANCE ENGAGE AND CAPTIVATE THE LISTENER.

FREQUENT TOURING HAS BEEN A CATALYST IN DEVELOPING THE SOUND OF THE BAND. DUBBED BY BEATROUTE AS A “RARE ACT WHO CRAFT THEIR ART FROM A PLACE OF DEEP INTROSPECTION THAT THE LISTENER IS ABLE TO FEEL TO THEIR CORE”, THE TIME SPENT ON THE ROAD IS REFLECTED IN THEIR COHESIVE PERFORMANCE.

SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE IS THE FIRST SINGLE TO BE RELEASED FROM THE BAND'S DEBUT LP. THE RECORD WAS PRODUCED BY SONGWRITING DUO LOGAN GABERT AND LANDON FRANKLIN, AND RECORDED WITH ORGANIST THOMAS PLATT IN FEVER FEEL’S HOME STUDIO.

THE GROUP TEAMED UP WITH GRAMMY-NOMINATED MIX ENGINEER, CLAUDIUS MITTENDORFER (WEEZER, TEMPLES, PARQUET COURTS, JOHNNY MARR) TO MIX THE RECORD, BRINGING THE ALREADY STUNNING COMPOSITIONS TO EVEN GREATER HEIGHTS.

A COMING OF AGE JOURNEY, A CIRCUS OF CIRCLES WHERE THE PRESENT IS ALWAYS FLEETING AND CHANGE JUST AROUND THE BEND. SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE IS THE FIRST TASTE OF WHAT PROMISES TO BE A COMPELLING SONIC VOYAGE.
EMBY ALEXANDER
EMBY ALEXANDER is THE SOUND OF PHOENIX. Emby Alexander is beautiful and intelligent. Experimental elements of Baroque and Chamber Pop make up this Indie Rock band from Phoenix, Arizona. Emby Alexander creates a focused aesthetic through thoughtful craft of self-produced music, art, and film. Emby Alexander's inaugural album, "Frontispiece", has debuted on the CMJ charts at #165. JAVA Magazine said, "...They approach their songs like pocket symphonies and deliver them like power pop tunes performed like an orchestra..".
SOFT DEADLINES
“People have been saying to me for years 'you're such a critic,'” says Oliver Lemke of Phoenix dance-punk band Soft Deadlines. “So the idea of basing a record on that seemed only natural.” “Critic” is the band's second album and their first full-length. Comprised of ten tracks, it balances tight, hook-filled pop structures with the jagged sonic edges of classic art-punk acts such as Gang of Four. Lemke's wry lyrics are often delivered with a sneer, yet somehow evoke sympathy for the lostness of the difficult characters who wander through them.

Assembled in a home studio with limited equipment, “Critic” was entirely a DIY endeavor for the band, but it caught the ear of 56th Street Records, an eclectic Central Phoenix label which released it as a CD in January 2015. The raw, earthy quality of the production led Phoenix New Times writer Jeff Moses to remark that “the garage rock wave is definitely coming into Phoenix,” while Java Magazine's Mitchell Hillman describes “Critic” as “brilliant post-punk angular guitar glory” and “f***ing stunning.”

Lemke credits a favorite college professor with introducing him to the post-punk genre, but it wasn't until 2013 that he met drummer Russ Hill and decided to start building on its musical ideas. The two self-produced an EP, “Nice Try,” which earned them enough interest to start booking frequent gigs around the Phoenix area. They spent much of 2014 writing and rehearsing ten new songs, but it took the assistance of Chad Cussen, a bassist/guitarist who officially joined the band that fall, to complete the record and develop the songs into a high-voltage stage show.

Since releasing “Critic,” Soft Deadlines have been playing frequent gigs around Phoenix and making plans for their first tour. “The logistical side is a bit daunting,” says Lemke. “But this is fun music that I think people really respond to, especially if, like me, they're a little weird. Basically I want to share these songs with as many weird people as possible.”
