Chastity Belt :
90’s inspired, moody guitar-driven melodies by bands like Sleater-Kinney, Walla Walla, and Autoclave played a vital role in motivating Washington based band, Chastity Belt. Often using witty cutting lyrics, and not taking themselves too seriously by purposely misspelling names on their debut record No Regerts, the band found themselves touring frequently in support of this record and inked a deal with Hardly Art Records for their next release, followed by their latest moodier album titled I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone. Watch the band’s official music video for their latest single titled “Different Now” above.

Hobo Johnson and the Lovemakers:
After a viral submission into NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest, which was filmed in the guitarist Derek Lynch’s backyard, Hobo Johnson and the Lovemakers captured both eyes and ears when an emotionally convicted Frank Lopes stitched together a quilt of lyrics and stories, from the frivolous thoughts of why we do the things we do, to the bigger internal traumas of why anything matters. Frank’s lyrics brought forth an authenticity that resonated with an audience for millions of views on YouTube. From sleeping in a 1994 Toyota Corolla, throwing DIY backyard shows, and Soundcloud uploads, Hobo Johnson has gained traction. Somewhere between hip hop, slam poetry, and emotional r&b lives his feverish manic style. Hobo Johnson brings proof that like diamonds, sometimes the most beautiful things can be created by the crushing pressure the world around you puts. Check out the NPR tiny desk performance above.
