Since the Noise Pop debut in 1993, the Festival has featured many emerging performers who have gone on to wide acclaim, including The White Stripes, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, The Flaming Lips, The Shins, Fleet Foxes, and Bright Eyes.
All Becomes Okay is the debut EP from shallou, the new project of musician and producer Joe Boston. Boston grew up in Rockville, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. He attended college in New Orleans, and then moved to Chicago, where he began making electronic music in his bedroom. shallou has come a long way from the bedroom. “Begin,” the first single from All Becomes Okay, recently hit #1 on Sirius XM Chill and has become a fixture on the Billboard Dance Charts for nine straight weeks. He has over 45 million total streams on Spotify, including over 18 million on “Doubt (Summer Edit)” and over 15 million on «Begin.» An excellent live performer, shallou has honed his craft across North America, touring with Petit Biscuit, Roosevelt, El Ten Eleven, and more. All of this has shallou primed to break out, and All Becomes Okay is his first major move towards the mainstream. An electronic album with an indie heart, All Becomes Okay is a stunning debut for shallou, a full artistic statement in five songs. Boston describes his music as “happy/sad,” and though that might sound like an oxymoron, it functions as a perfect descriptor for shallou’s brand of music, a dark and beautiful mix of ambient textures and dance rhythms. Forgoing the easy crowd-pleasing ecstasies of typical electronic music, shallou aims for the mind as well as the heart. The EP is structured to be listened straight through as one complete piece of music, but the singles can stand easily on their own. All Becomes Okay is music made for headphones just as much as it is for the live show. The title comes from living in a fearful world. “Working on this music alone, I’d get all in my head,” says Boston. “Watching the news with everything going on in the world, I developed all of these weird fears. ‘All Becomes Okay’ was kind of a mantra I wanted to repeat to myself and tell other people. It’s not a passive thing, but an active hope.” That’s what “happy/sad” music means. It’s music that you can dance to, or you can listen to it alone in your bedroom. The music comes to you and meets you wherever you are. It’s a gift, a sliver of hope in a dark night, a moment of solace for all the thinkers and dreamers of the world.
There’s a certain power to music, a magic that allows the listener to be transported into a new place where their fears and needs are understood. It’s that spellbinding quality that’s at the root of Hazey Eyes and his new EP, ‘Some Reason’, a record that’s as much a comfort blanket as it is a cushion to sit back and reflect on past and future experiences.
“Daily Apparatus” is the debut album from Host Bodies, a live electronic duo based in San Francisco. From the creative collaboration of MC and producer, James Collector (aka Swoop), and multi-instrumentalist and graphic designer, Nick Hess, Host Bodies emerges with a genre-defying blend of syncopated polyrhythms, gritty blues riffs, underground hip-hop psychedelia, narrative song structure, and field recordings from cities and the wild.
