Black Site Records showcase featuring
Emmaline Twist - Emmaline Twist constructs vast soundscapes that evoke the urgent, anxious energy of bustling cities enveloped by a sonic atmosphere as wide as the prairie sky. With the workmanlike spirit that is the hallmark of Midwestern rock music, Emmaline Twist combines the angular rhythms of post-punk with the dreamy ambience of shoegaze to create a sound unique to this Paris on the Plains.
Red Kate - RED KATE is a no bullshit, class conscious punk rock & roll band from Kansas City, MO. The band’s newest single, an old-school 45 rpm ripper, is the seventh in the Too Much Rock Singles Series. The A-side, Iraqi Girl, is a grinding statement on American foreign policy, while side B follows suit with a cover of TSOL’s American Zone – a frank indictment of how we treat those sent off to impose that policy. It’s as relevant today as it was in 1984.
Sona - Sona began as the love child of husband and wife Brian and Jenna Goodman. Add Bobby Reeves on drums and you have what people (weirdos) call a power trio. Reeves’s solid beats coupled with J. Goodman’s driving bass provide a rock-solid foundation for B. Goodman’s swirling, watery guitar. Live, Sona is melodic, spacey, and loud.
