Welcome back to the first edition of Promised To Suck for 2018 featuring our future friends from Sacramento…
Hobo Johnson and The Lovemakers
These dudes have been crushing the Sacramento scene and taking that pesky internet by storm thanks to their «Live From Oak Park» video series and multiple other releases since. Their sound, while somewhat hard to define, is unmistakable for something amazing. Definitely an artist to watch in 2018.
Quiet Domino is the new indietronica moniker of singer/songwriter/reckoner Mark «IVy» Nelsen. Founded in San Francisco in 2017, qD's lush synth and guitar soundscapes fuse cerebral dance rhythms with expressive soul-pop quivers for a post-culture veneer. The debut single and video «Metropelium» premiered in April 2017.
Idea Unsound takes experimentalism to a whole new level. He mixes clever melodies and conceptual ideas with elements of World Beat and Hip-Hop to create a primal groove that compliments every harmonious arrangement. He is constantly bringing innovative ideas to life in his evolving tastes and soundscapes by putting his 10+ years experiences in electronic music production to work for him. Traveling the world in the US Air Force has also blessed him with a flood of experiences in various musical flavors from around the globe, from which he pulls inspiration to always stay ahead of the curve creating something new and different. Check out his latest progressive electronic hit 'All in', out now via Popgang records wherever great music is sold.
And per usual Tooth and Tucker from Pretty, Handsome will be supplying some grooves throughout the night.
