The Lawsuits
The Lawsuits
For years, Philadelphia's The Lawsuits have been known for a sound that cannot be pigeonholed into one genre. There is something to be said about a band that has been creating music together as long as The Lawsuits have. With that longevity comes a sort of comfort and understanding for both themselves, and the listener. "Moon Son", the band's second full length release, and Randm Records debut, showcases years of blending each other's influences and sounds to create something wholly their own. They have spent their music careers up to this point dipping their toes in multiple sounds and styles to create this very identity. With a nostalgic nod to the greats of the past and a dash of modern productions and self-awareness, laced with sweeping harmonies: this is The Lawsuits.
Formed after songwriter Brian Dale Allen Strouse was introduced to vocalist Vanessa Winters & bassist Brendan Cunningham through a mutual friend, The Lawsuits then recruited fellow Temple alum, drummer Josh Friedman. Their 2013 release, 'Cool Cool Cool', was produced by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man), and garnered attention from outlets such as Rolling Stone, Spin, Paste & Philadelphia's WXPN. The album's first single, 'Onion', was chosen as #22 of Daytrotter's 300 Best Songs of 2013.
The Pinkerton Raid
The Pinkerton Raid
The Pinkerton Raid makes ebullient, dynamic indie pop out of Durham, N.C. The music starts with Jesse James DeConto’s intimate songwriting, but their live shows can feature anywhere from six to 10 musicians. They’ve played festivals and music series across the Eastern and Midwestern U.S. and have shared stages with David Wimbish & The Collection, Lowland Hum, Noah Gunderson, Denison Witmer and The Soil & The Sun. Their self-titled debut in 2012 and their 2014 follow-up A Beautiful World won critical acclaim.

Critics have hailed their 2017 effort, Tolerance Ends, Love Begins, comparing the sound to some of the band’s most cherished influences like The National, Fleet Foxes and Sufjan Stevens.

“The group recalls the hey-day of indie rock,” wrote Louise Parker at Paste Magazine. “A masterpiece … the definition of beauty.”

“A stunning synthesis of folkloric beauty,” wrote Mike Greenblatt of Aquarian Weekly.

“Exquisite,” wrote Meredith Schneider at Impose. “The emotion pulling you from your seat as you sway your hips.”

“Glorious … intricate … playful,” described Emily Hinde at No Depression. “A top year-end list contender? You can certainly count on it.”
Tyler Nail Trio
Tyler Nail Trio
Tyler Nail is a songwriter and singer from Winston-Salem, NC. With his previous americana band, The Tyler Nail Trio, he has toured the southeast of America, opening for such bands as the Hackensaw Boys, Underhill Rose, Lera Lynn, and Dexter Romweber.

Following the disbanding of the trio, Tyler Nail formed a new backing band, through which he has stepped into the realm of rock lounge music. The acoustic guitarist turned semi-crooner takes the position of a lead singer and band conductor. His old show of heartbreaking songs, heavy in poetic imagery and symbolism, has now evolved to have a mean tone of anti-romance, sarcastic social commentary, and a slight emphasis on sexuality and southern sacrilege.

The new band takes the simple name of "Tyler Nail." The band is made up of Michael Kinchen (bass), Josh Ling (guitar), Joe Jones (guitar), and Devin Forkel (drums). The group has a modern pop-rock side, with swelled spaces of non-specific guitar tones, supported by a jazz based rhythm section. Nail's half pretty and half aggressive voice sits in the middle of the songs like a rocking Sinatra modernization.
