The Cave Singers (Seattle, WA)

Given the rising popularity of meditative, folky indie acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy, rootsy folk trio was probably the least surprising move Derek Fudesco could have made. The former bassist and founding member of the successful indie rock group Pretty Girls Make Graves picked up an acoustic guitar and formed the Cave Singers followingPGMG's demise in January 2007, teaming up with vocalistPete Quirk (formerly of Hint Hint) and drummer Marty Lund(formerly of Cobra High). Though not an "official" member, ex-PGMGer Andrea Zollo made an appearance on the group's first album as a vocalist and washboard player. Drawing from canonical folkies like Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, and sounding more than a little like other early-2000s acts like Lightning Dust, the Snake the Cross the Crown, and Samamidon, the group had its first album, Invitation Songs, recorded and ready to go (thanks in large part to Black Mountain producer Colin Stewart) within months of PGMG's breakup. Matador picked up the trio soon after, and following a few delays Invitation Songs was slated for release in late September. The band continued on a similar path for 2008's Welcome Joy, but worked with producer Randall Dunn -- who also made albums with Sunn 0))) and Boris -- on 2011's eclectic No Witch. Following that record the band was joined by former Blood Brothers bassist Morgan Henderson, who was also doing time as bassist in Fleet Foxes. The expanded group spent 2012 working on their summery fourth album Naomi, which was released on Jagjaguar in early 2013. - All Music

Dræmhouse (Seattle, WA)

The song goes down with a smoothness and glints with golden-brown electric-guitar sighs. It's an auspicious omen for future releases and shows." -The Stranger

Cool things down a bit with the dreamier vibes of Dræmhouse. Just because the phaser pedals are set to “stun” doesn’t mean these guys aren’t killer. Their latest cassette single, “Woundlicker,” pairs woozy and atmospheric guitar tones with frontman Chris Cheveyo’s whispery, almost sultry vocals. The music oozes from the speakers, filling the room with layers of iridescent melodies and intoxicating harmonies. - Seattle Weekly

"The four songs collected here synthesize dream pop and psychedelic influences into a fluid sound that's immediate yet enigmatic" -Under The Radar
