PLEASE THE TREES http://

Scott Fry Experience
Please The Trees is a psychedelic rock band from the Czech Republic. They have been following intuitively the trail of inspiration for ten years now. Their live reputation precedes them, and what a reputation it is: an all enveloping, intense and soulful sound that puts pretenders in their place. Past tours of hundreds of shows included Europe, UK, USA and Israel. The band received the Czech Grammy award for the best alternative record of 2012 with their third album A Forest Affair (Starcastic Records) recorded in California, produced by Jonathan Burnside. The fourth studio record called Carp came out on Starcastic Records in September 2015. The album was recorded with Chris Koltay at High Bias Recordings, Detroit during the band’s fourth self organized US tour. After the release the album gets ravishing reviews and received the Apollo (Czech Critics Choice Music Award) for best record of 2015. In the Summer of 2015 PTT opened for Robert Plant And The Sensational Space Shifters and toured Europe as the opening act with Two Gallants. In September 2016, the band returns to tour the US and Canada for another month long tour.
BEYOND THE MUSIC
Please The Trees’ planting trees project.
After spending time with a gardener friend in New York (who has been secretly planting trees around town), the band got inspired and started planting a tree in every city where they perform. Each tree planting is photographed and documented, then posted on Facebook profile of the project.

Brick + Mortar is a two-piece indie pop outfit from Asbury Park, NJ. The duo consists of Brandon Asraf (guitars/vocals/programming) and John Tacon(drums/programming). Best described as controlled chaos, the band combines choppy rhythms, smooth bass lines, tempestuous drumming and honest lyrics, all of which culminates in something that is just as likely to show up on an indie up-and-comers list as it is to show up on a DJ’s playlist – something that is evidenced in the band’s role as a remix magnet for artists such as Baauer. Brick + Mortar is one of the few bands who can conjure up images of both carousels and cocaine, combining dancy with dark and pop with despair.
Coming off of the release of their EP, “BANGS,” Brick + Mortar is touring relentlessly, opening for Imagine Dragons, Icona Pop, and Jimmy Eat World, as well as performing in the summer festival circuit at mainstays including Made in America, Loufest, and Lollapalooza.

Sam Evian is a new music project from New York City, and the latest signing to Saddle Creek.
“Sleep Easy” is the first track to be shared from Premium, the debut Sam Evian LP, scheduled for release in 2016. The limpid ease of Premium was captured in just a handful of days at Figure 8 studio in Brooklyn, where Sam is a resident engineer and producer.
Glowing lead guitar, aching pedal steel, Wurlitzer keys and iconic 20th-century synths coalesce over a sublime, supportive rhythm section, guiding Sam’s melodies through a semi-familiar mist: the post-’60s zeitgeist, a sun-baked cassette of Pet Sounds, the modern struggle for emotional involvement in the internet age.

Lionel Williams (aka Vinyl Williams) is a Los Angeles based artist and musician. His collage art & psychepop
music fuses vast landscapes, multi-religious symbolism, and the supernatural into a paradoxical
whirlpool of “mysticism and sonic matrices”.
Created and performed solely by songwriter, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Williams, debut
album Lemniscate was released in November 2012. On the surface the record is a flood of ideas and
imagery, dashing psyched-out space-rock with layers of kraut and shoegaze.
Lead singles ‘Higher Worlds’ and ‘Stellarscope’ are muscular, transcendental-pop tracks led by frazzled
melodies and driving rhythm sections. Digging deeper into Williams’ world, album centerpiece ‘Inner
Space’ and closer ‘Follow In Your Dreams’ reveal more intangible, ethereal qualities; the sound of a
restless creative interweaving concepts to conjure a truly unique and intuitive experience.
This amorphous sensation is a constant across Williams’ mediums. The 22 year old has also exhibited
his similarly surreal art across New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Seoul.

Uniform formed in New York City in late 2013 when old friends Ben Greenberg (Hubble, The Men, Pygmy Shrews) and Michael Berdan (York Factory Complaint, Drunkdriver, Believer/Law) realized they lived on the same street. Their impulsive collaboration quickly yielded Our Blood / Of Sound Mind and Body single. The six tracks that comprise the equally abrasive but more refined Perfect World have been coming together between tours and work ever since.
The music that Greenberg and Berdan conjure up under the Uniform moniker is immediate, aggressive, and even primal in form, but it plumbs untold depths. Berdan’s venomous voice mines deeply personal themes of resentment, regret, reflection and addiction over the hum of Greenberg’s almost impossibly disciplined guitar, bass synth, and drum machine lines. Greenberg uses the word “templatized” to describe their approach to writing songs for Uniform.

Louisville’s creatively restless dark-rock auteurs Young Widows have announced the impending release of their new full length Easy Pain, due May 13 via longtime label Temporary Residence, Ltd. Recorded with Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket) the new set is far and away the trio’s densest, most disturbingly addictive record yet. Easy Pain melds the strengths of their past and their tenacity for the future to forge an album perfectly befitting their merciless moniker; the lyrics and vocal delivery are more expressive and dynamic, the guitars are enormous, the drums are pummeling, and the trademark gut-churning bass is more jaw-dropping than ever.
In the three years since the widescreen atmospherics of 2011’s In and Out of Youth and Lightness, Young Widows set their sites on crafting a set of songs that brims with visceral ferocity. The results are so suited to the subsuming force of the trio’s forceful live presence that the group recently debuted the album as a series of live performances in New York and Philadelphia, immediately galvanizing the support of their fanbase. Disregarding all boundaries and pushing forward with a masterful command of post-punk, noise rock, pseudo industrial, experimental doom, and goth, Young Widows emit the intimidating force of a 10-piece with the heart and soul of a classic power trio.
