ABOUT KEEPS

Listen | Watch

Keeps is a Nashville-based dream pop group comprised of songwriters Agustin Escalante and Robbie Jackson. They have been performing and releasing records for the past seven years after meeting on their first day of college in Tennessee. In the coming months Keeps will be releasing their second full-length album as a follow up to 2016's 'Brief Spirit' via Old Flame Records . The new record has put more emphasis on grooves and embracing the quieter side while still retaining the dreamy instrumentation they're known for. Catch Keeps out on the road this summer and fall in preparation for the new record.

ABOUT JOHN STAMPS

Listen | Watch

John Stamps is a 27 year old singer/songwriter from Indiana. His hip hop and pop inspired records are full of intimate charismatic lyrics depicting a style and state of mind that is all his own. Stamps’ funky heartland charm comparable to Bruce Springsteen, if the Boss spit bars, ate more acid and wasn’t afraid to wear his girlfriend’s clothes, gives a unique perspective that makes the Beastie Boys look like AV Club nerds.

ABOUT VV TORSO

Listen | Watch

VV TORSO are a post-punk four-piece from Indianapolis, IN. The group has rapidly risen to the forefront of the Indiana "art-punk" scene, performing relentlessly around the punk-bars, house venues, and DIY art-spaces in the region. They've gained a reputation for their blisteringly raw and emotional performances. Guitarist Brent Smith creates swirls of anarchic and angular guitar noise, while bassist Garrett Ney and drummer Tom Lageveen push and pull the music into intense polyrhythmic spaces. At the heart of the music is the demented and emotionally affected croon of frontman Natty Morrison. Morrison, who works as a creative writer, styles himself more as a poet than a song-writer or singer. His verses taking the form of abstract social commentary and descriptions of his own struggles with dependency, disorders, and anxiety. The music was initially conceived as a vehicle for Morrison's poetry while he performed at experimental art spaces. However, the music quickly began to match the violence and intensity of the the words, and the quartet began booking gigs opening for local and touring punk bands. The group released their debut album LPVV in early 2018.
