Lake Street Dive
Lake Street Dive will release Free Yourself Up, its second album with Nonesuch
Records on May 4. The band -- drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget
Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson -
- self-produced the album at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville with
engineer Dan Knobler. Lake Street Dive formed in 2004 while students at New
England Conservatory and have been touring non-stop ever since, growing from
basement venues like The Lizard Lounge in Boston, MA to selling out Radio City
Music Hall in New York City. For this album, the quartet drafted touring
keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio. Adding another player to the
process freed up the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental
textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build on their well-known
background harmonies. "This album is based in the realities in our
time," Kearney reflects, "which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily
life. It's something you think about and obsess over -- and write songs
about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no
matter what's going wrong.”
River Whyless
River Whyless
Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, River Whyless puts a hauntingly sweet spin on traditional foundations. Their Jan 2015 EP, the bands first release since their 2012 debut album, marks a notable evolution in their collective voice. River Whyless elected to decamp to Louisville, Kentucky’s La La Land Studio where they worked with Kevin Ratterman (Andrew Bird, My Morning Jacket, Ben Sollee) on the new tracks. The result is an EP full of lush harmonies, wide sweeping arrangements driven by dark percussion and metaphors built of firewood and sap. Anderson’s voice finds a mark between Sandy Denny’s ethereal plea and Crystal Gayle’s country swoon.

English trad-folk sounds are some of the band’s obvious touchstones, putting them in a category similar to contemporaries like Fleet Foxes and Stornoway. Since the January 2015 release of the EP, River Whyless has recorded Tiny Desk and World Cafe sessions for NPR, along with other notable features from Paste Magazine, The Bluegrass Situation, SiriusXM and more.
