Batteryboy has been described by 89.3 The Current's Andrea Swensson as “...reminiscent of Cloud Cult’s acoustic work and neo-folkies like Bon Iver.” Americana UK’s 7/10 album review of batteryboy’s debut up for air says batteryboy “remind me of The National, particularly the passion the members of both bands put in when delivering their performances.”

On before the silence breaks, batteryboy has evolved to create a sonic niche of their own. Rouse claims batteryboy 'makes music to deal with everything else,' and when they sweep you up in their lush sound and cathartic, emotionally charged lyrics, you just might find some help dealing with everything else, too.

Batteryboy was founded as a solo project by Rouse in 2011, and now includes multi-instrumentalist Eric Carranza, cellist Hilary James (We are the Willows), and drummer Kahlil Brewington. Cloud Cult violinist Shannon Frid-Rubin and Trombonist Andrew Thoreen of Har-di-Har and J.E. Sundae also appear on several songs on the album.


LOTT is the solo project of Minneapolis musician, Leah Ottman (We Are The Willows). Classical Experimental Violin. The core inspiration for LOTT's compositions is the Romantic Period of classical music. The chordal structures, intervals, and melodies heard throughout her songs are reminiscent of those used by Antonin Dvorak, Alexander Borodin, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, French Impressionist composer, Maurice Ravel, and then condensed into pop songs. She explores the range on her violin by utilizing a looping pedal and similar techniques employed by looping violinist pioneers, Andrew Bird, Kishi Bashi, and Owen Pallet.
