Tispur is a chamber-folk project fronted by Samwise Carlson from Boise, ID, now located in Portland, OR. Known for their intricate guitar-work, dream-like vocals, and ornate lyricism that excite evocative imagery of imaginary worlds; Samwise creates gently hypnotic, moving performances akin to the spirits of Nick Drake, Vashti Bunyan, and Joanna Newsom.
Theadoore, formed in itty bitty Rhode Island, makes experimental pop music for brothers to hold hands to. Singer/guitarist Grace Ward (Houndsteeth, Queen Crony, Birthday Ass), and drummer Tristan Brooks (Beverly Tender) both studied jazz, and one of them even got good at playing it. Theadoore is not jazz, but the band’s complex harmony and rhythmic freedom make for passable fake-jazz. The third member, Grace L-S (Or Best Offer), plays Bass VI, and everybody gets a turn to push the sampler. For fans of: fake-jazz, imitation folk-metal.
