Michael Nau (Cumberland, Maryland)
Michael Nau returns this year with an expanded full-band lineup now known as The Mighty Thread, comprised of musicians from all over America who have been a part of his touring and recording life over the past few years. “We've all played together in various arrangements over the past few years”, says Nau. "We made a record with this core group last year and did a west coast trip at the end of '17. It was fun and so we want to try and keep it going wherever we can. As such, we’re going to do a string of shows coming up wherein any show listed as "...& the mighty thread" will be full band shows comprised of Will Brown on keys, Benny Yurco on guitar, Graeme Gibson on drums, Robinson Morse & Evan ApRoberts on bass and hopefully get to release some music featuring these bandmates in the near future.
the dove & the wolf (Philadelphia, PA)
The Dove & the Wolf is Paloma and Lou, two French girls raised on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
After spending a year touring the US, they relocated in Philadelphia.
In their new EP I Don’t Know What To Feel, co-produced by Dave Hartley of The War On Drugs and Nick Krill of The Spinto Band, The Dove & The Wolf’s bright-eyed sound matures into a more haunting kind, straddling indie rock, dream pop and jangle pop.
Somber undertones reminiscent of the Cocteau Twins twist through melodies, with pregnant guitar riffs and a sound that brings Fleetwood Mac to mind.
