The Range of Light Wilderness (Solo)

The Range of Light Wilderness makes you feel like that old beach blanket in your trunk might really be a magic carpet. Roll it out, and go for a sandy ride in the sky. It's all moonlight and waves here, pine-pitch and sunshine.

The band is a three piece centered on songwriter Tommy Frank MacDonald. The sound is hushed and catchy, melodically magical, beachy pop. Songs are born from long days in Big Sur, where Tommy dwells on high ridge top, in the center of a sunset.

Gnome Life has recorded and released on double album cassette by The Range of Light Wilderness, and a full length LP/CD.

Red Steppes

red steppes’ debut A Mouth May Grow was rooted firmly in the topography of California; her sophomore release Arcs (Native Cat Recordings, out May 31 2019) is the fruit of a series of displacements, disturbances, and reorientations. Stylistically diverse, the album delivers minimalist guitar pop, mathy folk, and even a Peter Gabriel-tinged meditation on loss, finding equilibrium in songwriter Nika Aila States’ intimate vocals. Arcs is plush with the kind of photographic lyricism States began exploring with A Mouth May Grow; songs fondly addressed to lovers are mindful of an inevitable transience, lullabies keep account both of the world’s smallest gestures and its great ruins, and a series of scenes unfold as a prayer of sustenance, a knowing salutation aimed at fellow travelers and sailors-by-the-wind.

Sis

Sis is a band. A sole composer/singer Jenny Gillespie Mason begins the process sketching lyrics and melodies alone in a room, but the rest is a serendipitous, scary and smooth recording combustion between players in the studio, namely core members Mason, electric guitarist Carly Bond (Meernaa) and keyboardist Rob Shelton (Meernaa, John Vanderslice). The music of their debut album Euphorbia (Native Cat Recordings, 2018) is an experiment in soulful R&B romantics with an undercurrent of breathless risk. While a disparate array of influences materializes on the record Euphorbia, from Sade to Steve Reich, something truly new is created the collective energy from each player’s musical lineage. They've since released a single "Nightie," an ode to UFO dreams, Jungian stirrings, and the restless hypnotics of Talking Heads, to be included on their forthcoming 2019 sophomore LP Gas Station Roses. The new record recorded with drummer Otto Hauser (Devendra Banhart, Cass McCombs) and percussionist Brijean Murphy (Toro Y Moi, US Girls).
