We're moved by the gospel of heartache
Skyway Man
Skyway Man
Skyway Man is the music you want playing on the radio, when you kiss someone for the first or last time, and then lightning strikes and the radio explodes.

Love makes people walk differently, doesn't it?

James walks on the skyway.
Birdcloud
Birdcloud
Birdcloud is Makenzie and Jasmin from East Nashville and Cottontown, respectively. Birdcloud met in Murfreesboro and immediately didn't like eachother. At a party in 2009 they had some whiskeys and became friends and started dicking around on guitar, writing their first song, a song about going down on your best friend, now lost to the sands of time. Despite a lukewarm reception at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, they have been sitting on eachother's faces ever since, showing eachother their bruises and generally doing whatever they want when it works out that way.
Kindercastle
Kindercastle
At the tender age of 14, Ross Wariner and Cody Uhler sat next to each-other in a high school classroom not knowing that they would spend the next 7 years together following the urge to create musically. Soon thereafter they joined the same band, Ross playing turntables and Cody playing bass. After much dissatisfaction with the creative democracy of a Rock n' Roll sextet, they began working together in a small studio in Ross's bedroom producing crude songs and arrangement under the name Nosforatu.

The music and ideas gradually evolved due to influences such as Jason Severs, Milton Glaser, Peter Max, Philip Guston, Carl Sagan, Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, the Electric Light Orchestra, and Raymond Scott.

Previous releases as Kindercastle include the full-length In A Tizzy and the Dot to Dot to Dot EP
Mystery Twins
Mystery Twins
After over a decade of playing together as one half of Nashville based band The Clutters, a band that garnered public praise from the likes of David Fricke of Rolling Stone and film director Cameron Crowe, Doug Lehmann and Stephanie Brush are stripping it all back, opening wounds and letting it all bleed on their Mystery Twins debut Ghost In The Ground.


The full-length follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed cassette EP “Love is Strange” -- a release that earned them a spot on the upcoming Poetry Sucks! anthology from Jack White’s Third Man Records -- "Ghost In The Ground" is a haunting portrait of misspent adulthood. Just guitar, drums and voices, the Mystery Twins are like a cynical, co-ed Everly Brothers brandishing razor sharp songs that cut to the bone with the simplest of strokes. "I want to accomplish the most we possibly can with the least amount possible" states Lehmann. "It's not necessarily a minimalist approach, but an economy of scale that forces us to justify artistic decisions." With such a long tenure as bandmates Lehmann and Brush have developed a preternatural sense of songcraft, a mastery of the streamlined and a push and pull delivery that not only makes them a phenomenal live show, but digs deep into your soul on record.

"Ghost in the Ground", partly recorded with engineer Joe Costa (Ben Folds Five, Brendan Benson) and co-producer Dexter Green (Sam & Ruby, Derek Hoke) and partly recorded by Lehmann himself, manages to be mature and innocent in simultaneous strokes. There is a grandeur in their simplicity, a brashness in their beauty and a spool of contradictions spooling out from the album. "A Lot of this album is about alienation, about feeling like an outsider in the middle of a crowd." Lehmann says "I don't really see that as something I should shy away from anymore. Ghost in the Ground is about identifying things you may have perceived as weaknesses in the past and turning them into advantages."

From the headless vandalized statues of outsider-artist E.T. Wickham that adorn the cover to the final acoustic chords of “Long Days”, Ghost in the Ground is a work of subtle charms and shining moments.

"Minimalist chemistry, harmonizing, thumping and loud-quiet-louding their way through first-generation R&B and rock ’n’ roll tunes and originals alike."
— D. Patrick Rodgers / Nashville Scene

"Lehmann and Brush have a talent for raggedy harmonies that meld together well."
— Lance Conzett / Nashville Scene

"What we like most about these guys is the haunting The Dutchess and the Duke vibe they have going, but of course, with a bit more of a punch."
— The South Rail
