It’s that time of year once again. A little more than a month away from what is quickly becoming one of the best Northwest music festivals. And once again Killing Sasquatch is your headquarters to learn and listen to the newer indie bands. The headliners this year include RJD2, Polica, The Joy Formidable, Dan Deacon, Odesza, This Will Destroy You, and many more!
But we like to scroll all the way to the bottom of the artist page and fine some of the gems buried deeper.
First band that you need to listen to is New Madrid from Athens, GA. These guys have a chilled out rock and roll sound. Almost on the ambient side of acoustic rock, New Madrid has a good mix of vocals, jangly guitar riffs, and catchy rhythms. Their next full length is coming out at the end of February called, Sunswimmer.
Next up is a Salt Lake City band called Dark Seas. This five piece band has a good old time classic rock kind of sound to them. Their debut release is called Hawkes Court that came out last April. Dark Seas’ sound has a lot of The Doors influence to it, though with a lighter, groovier feel to it.
Last band for the post is Tangerine. This Seattle band is straight groove-pop. Super bright guitar riffs, surfy drum beats, and amazing vocals make up this four piece. They have two EPs that came out last year, Feel This Way and Pale Summer. They are both excellent.
These bands are just the beginning of part 3 in the epic adventure of Treefort Music Fest.
