Ben Millburn & Sunglass Moustache
Ben Millburn & Sunglass Moustache
Louisiana native and Austin resident Ben Millburn released a two part EP series called The Balance EPs over the last year. Austin Town Hall described Part I as "brimming with the perfect backing harmony and this swelling of huge guitar riffs that ring out in your speaker long after the tune is over." PopMatters described Part II as "downright chilly, like if Kurt Vile’s weirdest stuff was even more glacial and empty. Its folksy guitar is less down-home friendliness and more tumbleweedy desert, no life around for miles." Millburn is joined live by his new group, Sunglass Moustache, who bring the records to life and who make the live show a unique psychedelic rock and roll experience.

RJ Bloke
RJ Bloke
RJ Bloke is a singer-songwriter from Boston, Massachusetts and frontman for the roots rock, alt-country band Patrolled By Radar based in Los Angeles, California.

"The music reminds one of Americana’s first great flowering, sitting comfortably next to Wilco’s A.M., The Jayhawks’ Hollywood Town Hall and Son Volt’s Trace – all worthy descendents of the roots-influenced, energized, off-handedly skillful rock tributary stemming from The Band." - Dirty Impound

"RJ Bloke’s lyrics are more poem than narrative, leaving behind impressions and images rather than story arcs. The songs are often dressed in catchy melodies and clever word play that initially obscure the lyrics’ underlying darkness, but the contrast makes this both immediately accessible and grist for deeper consideration." – No Depression
