Airpark
Airpark
Airpark makes deconstructed pop music.

Inspired by minimalism, melody and groove-heavy percussion, bandmates Michael Ford, Jr. and Ben Ford launched the group in 2016, one year after their previous project, The Apache Relay, quietly called it quits. The Apache Relay had been a large band, staffed with six members and armed with a thick, wall-of-sound approach. With Airpark, the Ford brothers sharpen their focus and scale back their arrangements, focusing on songs that pack a punch with bold, basic ingredients.

It's a sound that targets the feet and the head. It's pop music for thinkers. It's dance music for wallflowers. And with the brothers pulling triple-duty as songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and co-producers, Early Works, Volume 1 — whose March 3, 2017 release arrives courtesy of the Fords' own label, Eugenia Hall Records — is their most forward-thinking project to date, pairing the band's growing ambition with musical chops to match.

Perhaps the key to the band’s dynamic is their diversity of taste. “We all have very different listening preferences,” Jason points out. Ryan is a string composer and self-proclaimed pop music fan. Nathan is interested in jazz. Jason has always been steadfast in his love of Rock and Roll. When it all comes together, Tesla Rossa delivers scuzzy rock jams and grand breakup anthems in the same breath, and always with an equal measure of power and finesse.
The New Schematics
The New Schematics
Nashville’s The New Schematics spent their first fifteen months as a band proving that the Born Without Borders Tour was indeed the right name for their tour that spanned 97 shows in 42 cities across the US and Canada. As a band that quickly put so many shows under its belt, it is no wonder as to why they’ve gained the reputation as a live act with “the crowd control skills of preachers” (Cougar Microbes) whose “passion for their art is palpable” (Valslist).

The band officially began as a duo, with Cory Bishop (vocals, guitar) and Michael Bare (bass, vocals), who brought a rotating cast of bandmates on the road with them. A few months after they pulled him on stage for a guitar solo in New York City, Shanan Lau left the band that was opening for The New Schematics in order to join Cory and Michael as a full-time third member.

They now usher in 2017 with the title track from their sophomore EP, Your Year. The sprawling rock’n’roll soundscape coupled with the clear-cut lyrical optimism of the lead single falls right in-line with their debut that already carried “the markings of a seasoned classic,” (Will Hodge, Noisetrade).
