The Minks (Nashville)
The Minks are Nashville’s “psychedelic-bloos” band, heavy on the rock and roll. We’re talking lowdown, all the way, purse-lipped, eyes-shut, head-whirling kind of rock and roll. The band’s palpable sound has roots in every music fan’s top ten—from Lou to Patti to Creedence to Hank. Mixed with raw, jangly instrumentation and soulful saccharine vocals, it’s as much a throwback as it is an answer to the often overlooked underbelly of Nashville’s rock and roll scene
Waltzer (CHI)
Sophie Sputnik, professionally known as Waltzer, is a Chicago based singer songwriter and artist. She began her career in the swampy, punk rock scene of South Florida before moving to Chicago to pursue her next project. In Chicago, Sophie drew on the influences that dominated the scene she grew up in such as Iggy Pop, The White Stripes, and The Ronettes to name a few. A collision occurred upon meeting the folks of the Chicago music scene as she found herself working with musicians of all different backgrounds and styles, leading to the creation of Waltzer’s debut album “Time Traveler.” Drawing from her love of Orbison, Etta, and Harrison, songs like “Lantern” and “Destroyer” found their soul in producer Chris Devlin’s home and then recorded on tape at Treehouse records.
