About Japancakes:

This Athens, Georgia group defies standard musical categories. The songs often build from a single chord to which the band adds complex layers of cello, pedal steel guitar, old 70s keyboards, found sounds, and waves of lush guitars. This music manages to be great mood music that also merits close attention, revealing all kinds of hidden gems in the many layers of sounds. This is complex, beautiful, and innovative music.

About National Grain:

Pulling from influences such as Uncle Tupelo, George Jones and The Replacements. National Grain’s music is something akin to country, rock and honky-tonk strained through and old AM radio. The music is conceived, written, practiced, performed and should be enjoyed while surrounded by cigarette smoke and beer.

RIYL: Yo La Tengo, Wilco, Stereolab, Flaming Lips, Hank Williams, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Calexico, Uncle Tupelo.
