With the last artist announcement and schedule finalization, Treefort Music Fest is officially in hype mode! To help get everyone informed of who to check out while in Boise, here’s a few artists that we are going to be checking out.
First is Jai Wolf, the electronic artist from New York. He has already made a name for himself with the track “Indian Summer” and a handful of remixes as well. With his lush beats and hard bass, this a dance party you won’t to miss Friday night at Rose Room.
The Roaring 420s
Next is The Roaring 420s all the way from Dresden, Germany. Their music is very much what you would expect; heavy psychedelic influenced pop-rock. They are super catchy and you know it’ll be a good time with the show also on Friday night at a new venue called The Olympic.
Mothers is definitely a different pace than the other two bands, but they are amazing songwriters. The falsetto vocals are quite astonishing and makes everything seem OK. They are from Athens, GA so be sure to check them out Friday as well, they play at Linen Building.
It’s almost two months away until the fifth installment of Treefort Music Festival in downtown Boise, ID. It has been a pleasure to see this festival mature and grow over the last five years. I’m really excited for this year! So, let me share some bands that will be playing later on in March.
The band JAWWZZ!! is from Salt Lake City. With a fuzzy garage rock style, the uptempo pop of the drum beats will keep you moving your booty all over the place. The heavy distortion on the guitars matches the vocal tone as well. I’m stoked to jump in and rip it up to JAWWZZ!! during Treefort.
Acid Dad is from NYC and they have a new EP that is just about to be released. They are a fast, heavy psych-rock band with great songwriting and catchy guitar riffs. The bass lines are super poppy as well, really dig these guys sound a bunch.
Here is Boise band, HiHazel. They are a psychedelic band that has more of a drone type of sound to it. A lot of repeated guitar riffs over a muddled bass line and vocals. It makes for great chilling out music. Definitely going to make it to this show.
Brand new debut album from Clarke and the Himselfs, the one man band from Boise, ID. The album is called The Well-Rounded Clarke and the Himselfs. Clarke has a really cool garage rock type of sound, with his combo of playing drums and guitar at the same time. The way he apathetically sings and whistles makes it that much DIY sounding. The Well-Rounded Clarke and the Himselfs is packed with a lot of good songs. My favorites are “Cabin Boy” “Toxic World” and “Asteroid.” I also think that the lyrics are superbly written too. Overall, Clarke and the Himselfs is a fun time to listen to, and if you get the chance to see him live do not pass it up!
New music from the post-rock group Red Hands Black Feet, called We Must Fall Forever if We Survive. These guys are one of our favorite bands out of Boise. The new album is quite magical, there are so many moments that you just get lost in the movement. Red Hands Black Feet create a sense of falling forever, but making it okay to do so. We Must Fall Forever if We Survive is a real epic of an album, with beautiful songs. You got to listen to it.
After several months off we are back for good. We are so excited to finally share our video of this past years Treefort Music fest. The video includes some of our favorite bands like; Built To Spill, Summer Cannibals, !!!, Foxygen, Animals Eyes, Delicate Steve, and more. Stay tuned as we delve into the initial lineup announcement of Treefort Fest 2016.
