Black Whales
Black Whales is a five-piece band from Seattle. Their sound drifts between booming, almost danceable psychedelic anthems to darker and more ambient territories. Pulling heavily from groups that have inspired them over the years, the band draws comparisons to groups from The Velvet Underground, 13th Floor Elevators and The Jesus and Mary Chain to more modern day contemporaries such as Kurt Vile, The War On Drugs and Crocodiles.

Formed in the winter of 2008 by close friends and longtime collaborators Alex Robert (vocals, guitar) and Alan Foote (guitar), the pair soon found a third partner in drummer Davey Brozowski (drums) before adding Ryan Middleton (bass) and later, organ and keys were introduced to the sound.

During the first years, the band experimented with different genres and styles, adopting a reverb-soaked garage pop sound, while also experimenting a bit with the freak-folk genre.
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 Nadamucho.com
