Fruit Juice
"My needs were met when Fruit Juice, a band of self-proclaimed “eccentric-pop” rockers from Olympia, took the stage. Not only do their songs feel like a cool, tasty glass of fruit juice, but the band must spend more money on glitter than any group I’ve seen in a decade. I liked the group’s music when I saw them perform roughly two years ago, but they have evolved by leaps and bounds since then. Jake McCaffray and Quillian Fennessy have perfected their catchy and harmonic vocal pop hooks; Gabriel Stranahan’s bass lines are jaunty and infectious; and the arrangements are tight, fun and always get even the stuffiest Seattleite to tap their toes. Topping it all off, new drummer Ron Plaja glues the project together with a relaxed and inspired set of beats that have greater depth and fluidity than the band’s earlier incarnation. He also smiles more than any drummer I’ve seen of late; it’s excellent to watch him have fun." -Frida Ray via
Born from deep within the firm abdominal muscles of the Puget Sound region in late 2013, Bod features members of Boat, Cumulus, Oberhofer, and Slowwave. Bod's sound is a vivid and wide spectrum: the fuzzed-out growl of a diamond-encrusted theropod, lost like a lion in canyons of smoke; the baroque harmonies of the well-dressed and undead; the static warble of a public broadcast ID; playful arabesque melodies gliding across the green-screen rings of Saturn. Bod draws influences from late 90's Bay Area art-rock, be-bop, kiwi-pop, grunge, glam, gaze, minimalism, punk, and recreational watercraft.
Sleeping Lessons
Sleeping Lessons is the latest Seattle indie-rock band on the block made up of Charlie Deane, Paul Kowalczyk, Dan Moretti, and Terence Bonsey. The collective resume of Deane, Kowalczyk, Moretti, and Bonsey precedes them, having played in a variety of projects ranging from international b-boy sensation Don’t Talk To The Cops, Seattle surf staples The Echo Echo Echoes, and backing the indie-folk prodigy Sophia Duccini. While Bonsey was championing basslines to breakdancing competitions around the world; Deane, Moretti and Kowalczyk were busy sharing bills with artists such as Car Seat Headrest, Washed Out, Deep Sea Diver, Diet Cig, STRFKR and even Odesza . In less than a year since their debut on Seattle’s famed Big BLDG Bash Festival main stage, Sleeping Lessons have started to create some serious momentum for themselves across the world with their self-produced debut album Red Sprites.

Already the band has had support from influential radio stations worldwide such as Seattle’s KEXP, Boston’s WEMF, and RKC in Paris. Even rock and roll hall of fame DJ Marco Collins is a fan, calling Red Sprites “one of the best debut records I've heard come out of the NW in a long time!”

Things keep going from strength to strength for the young Seattle band, who returning on their second west coast tour have just been added to a slew of the Pacific Northwest’s most exclusive bills including Capitol Hill Block Party and Fisherman’s Village Music Festival. With 2 west coast tours under their belt and more on the horizon, the future looks bright for Sleeping Lessons.
