Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers

For over a decade, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have produced nothing but uncompromised, unadulterated, 100% pure rock-n-roll. Sticking to their credo of art leading commerce, the Tempe-based quarter have released six consecutive studio albums that all debuted in the top 10 on Billboard's Internet Sales chart (the first independent band to ever accomplish that feat) by mixing relentless guitar licks, four part harmonies, thought-provoking lyrics and tequila.

Roger Clyne, guitarist Jim Dalton, drummer P.H. Naffah and bassist Nick Scropos look to continue that streak on Unida Cantina, the most upbeat and collaborative effort yet for the band. It's also Clyne's most infectious record since he and Naffah released their 1996 cult-classic, Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big and Buzzy with their previous band, The Refreshments. Unida Cantina is music marinated with pure American guitar-driven roots rock-n-roll. It's a unification point of people with like hearts and minds who still want to rock. And along the way, they may just also find Unida Cantina.

The Hasslers

The Hasslers, a five piece rock outfit from Missoula, Montana, build songs around lyrics, but they don't skimp on materials. Haunting lap steel ambiance meshes with wailing organ riffs, all behind a forefront of tight vocal harmonies. Recent winners at both the ZMA awards and Sean Kelly's Top of the Mic contest, these kids embody the kind of small town pride you can raise a glass to. Genuine, hard-hitting, MT folk-rock, erudite pool hall rock, doesn't matter what you call it, it's fun to watch and it's good to listen to.
