In the simplest terms, decker. is a singer/songwriter based in Sedona, Arizona. A more apt description, however, would be to call him a musical mystic. He himself describes his sound as psychedelic desert folk, drawing inspiration directly from the vortexes of the red rock mountains and canyons where he residesan area so widely known for its resounding energy that millions of spiritual travelers flock there every year in an attempt to harness its power. With a handful of self-released recordings to his name that have garnered praise from KEXP, Magnet Magazine and No Depression, decker. signed with revered independent label Royal Potato Family in 2017 to release a 10-song retrospective entitled Into The Red. In 2018, he returns with a full-length collection of new material, Born To Wake Up. Where previous albums have leaned darker in mood and content, this latest finds him maturing in his artistic viewpoint, offering more optimism and light across a range of songs like Awake, Smudge and The Matador. Glide Magazine recently wrote, "decker. is one of the countrys most criminally underrated songwriters. With the release of Born To Wake Up, that should all be changing.
Porno Wolves (MLPS, MN)
The Porno Wolves are a premium blend of blues, psychedelia, sex appeal and rock n roll. The four-piece has erected their authentic sound on a foundation of musicianship and the classic rock canon. Fuzzed out leads, complex riffs, thought provoking lyrics, dense harmonies, and driving beats.
Brought together by their mutual love for rock n roll, the band began putting together material for their first record. Shine Like Gold, released in 2015, was the first concentrated effort by the Porno Wolves that not only solidified the groups artistic direction, but also put them on the local map. Musically, the album plays with the idea of light and dark, moving from up-tempo rock n roll to stoner rock and heartfelt ballads. Skipping the studio, the Porno Wolves second album Young Moon Rising: Live was recorded live at the intimate 331 Club in Minneapolis. Showcasing the bands live presence, the album contains live versions of tracks from Shine Like Gold as well as new material.
Creating some serious local buzz after the release of Young Moon Rising: Live the band garnered strong local support in the Twin Cities, from fans and local radio. Less than six months later the Porno Wolves were back in the studio working on their third album, Renegades. The album was produced by producer and engineer Tim Barbeau and mastered with Ed Ackerson at Flowers Studio in Minneapolis. Renegades is a refinement of the Porno Wolves sound. The album is a collection of danceable tracks featuring striking guitar riffs and thunderous drums. Recommended listening at peak volume.
Syvers is an indie duo from Minneapolis, MN.
