"Recently called one of “the Western Mass. indie scene’s brightest creative lights” by Pitchfork, Northampton, Massachusetts’ And The Kids recently released their debut full-length album, Turn to Each Other (Signature Sounds). Turn to Each Other is more than an album title: it’s a statement of fact for the band, whose bond — as musicians, friends and creative foils — is as tight as they come. The album features 11 tracks full of ringing guitars from Hannah Mohan, knotty rhythms from drummer Rebecca Lasaponaro and bold accents from synthesizers and percussion by Megan Miller. Together, they create “apocaplyptic pop”, a dizzying stop-start ride with lush, intricate soundscapes that frame Mohan’s lively lead vocals. NPR Music recently raved, “Guitarist Hannah Mohan’s striking vocals rival the vibrato and boldness of Siouxsie Sioux… [And The Kids] make music that’s both fearless and entertaining.” An ongoing struggle with border issues for Miller, a Canadian citizen, initiated the addition of bassist Taliana Katz to the touring ensemble. Katz made her debut as part of the band at their NPR Tiny Desk Concert and continues to carry the energy of the album to the stage. "

Newly minted Angeleno, Lizzy Ellison finds herself way out of her comfort zone in southern California -- and that's a good thing. After years of pumping up the indie cred of Portland darlings Radiation City, Ellison teamed with Riley Geare (Unknown Mortal Orchestra) to form the core of Cardioid. The result is something far less cloistered and calculated than RadCity ever dared to approach, letting Ellison's vocals drive this train of quirky modern pop. Patient crescendos open up to dance rock denouements, a country tune pops in for a "howdy-do," and flat-out R&B reveals Ellison's immediate and engaging honesty. This. Band. Rules.
