Shaylee is the power pop/post-rock power trio you never knew you needed in your life. Fronted by Elle Archer’s shredding lead guitar, backed by Nate Anderson’s propulsive drumming, and held down by Robin Cook’s rock solid bass lines, their songs ring out like anthems for a queer generation. For fans of Courtney Barnett, Big Star, Neil Young, and Elliott Smith.

The dream of the 90s is alive in Mila Mila, an upstart four-piece inspired by rock bands ranging from Hole and Sonic Youth to Duster and Hum. Hailing from the pastures of North Texas, guitarist and songwriter Taz Coffey brings a touch of twang to the band’s dreamy, droney instrumentals, which come courtesy of master bass slapper Ethan Bear, waterfall-enthusiast drummer Shawn “Shaggy” Bolker, and cinephile guitarist Brendan Nagle.

Consisting of two guitars, bass, tenor saxophone, pedal steel, and one giant drum, Abronia makes music that takes inspiration from Spaghetti Western soundtracks, spiritual free jazz, drone metal, Tuareg guitar bands, 80’s goth, outlaw country, Krautrock, 60’s psychedelia, and deserts.
Both delicate and enormous, Abronia has carved out its own very singular sonic space within the broader psych rock universe.
They have released three full length albums since 2017. Their most recent, Map of Dawn, was released in May of 2022 by Cardinal Fuzz (UK & the World) and Feeding Tube Records (N. America).
Summer 2022 saw their first European/UK tour, which included an appearance at the Supersonic Festival in Birmingham, UK.
“Abronia makes music for scorched planets–conjuring images of rattlesnakes in the burning sun, determined and dangerous.” –Post-Trash
