OFFER FANS EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT RECORDING PROCESS
WITH WOODSTOCK SESSIONS EVENT ON OCTOBER 17 & 18TH
Team Sleep
Team Sleep, the influential group featuring members of DeftonesCrossesDeath Grips and more, is reuniting to record the long-awaited follow up to their self-titled 2005 debut. In a unique opportunity for fans, the band is offering an exclusive look at the recording process. On October 17th & 18th, Team Sleep is inviting fans to Applehead Recording in Woodstock, NY as part of theWoodstock Sessions series for a listening party of the new material, a Q&A session with the band, a live performance, a meal with the band and much more. Fans will receive recordings of the live performance both digitally and on vinyl, a CD of previously unreleased material, exclusive merchandise and more. Tickets are now available here.
Throughout the fall, Team Sleep record new material to be released in the coming year, with more details to be revealed soon. To hold fans over in the meantime, the band has unveiled two previously unheard snippets of tracks entitled “No” and “Dreamland,” available for stream and embed here.
The band’s statement is below:

“Dear friends, Please join us as we create our next record in Woodstock, New York. We’ll gather at Applehead studio, near the base of the Catskill mountains to eat, write, play and record. For a long time, business people, logistics, careers, adulthood, families and the House Republicans have thwarted us, but we’ve continued to make music. At the same time, the creative process has become increasingly fragmented and dehumanized. With that in mind, we’re very excited to get together with our friends, hang out, play music and have a unique experience in a beautiful place. We’d like you to be there, too. Your participation will be essential to the independent creation and release of the live performance and our forthcoming studio record; we look forward to seeing you.

 

Thank you very much,

 

Chino Moreno

Todd Wilkinson

CrookOne

Zach Hill

Rick Verret

Chuck X”

Tallows

Bringing a new spirit to indie music with their refreshing combination of unique vocals, rolling melodies, and crisp horns and percussion, experimental indie band Tallows brings a distinctive mood to the genre.

Known for their “kaleidoscopic songs that quickly turn anthemic” (Paste Magazine) and already hailed by tastemaking music blogs (including DIY Magazine and The Wild Honey Pie) as the new indie band to watch, Tallows began when friends Josh Hogsett (multi-instrumentalist/vocalist) and Richard Lindsey (guitarist/programmer) met and formed the band in Oklahoma City in 2012. With the addition of Jay Sullivan (drummer) and Adam Thornbrugh (bassist), the band recorded their first album Memory Marrow, released in 2013. Quickly winning listeners over with their eclectic songwriting, infectious singles “Soft Water” and “Small Talk,” and dynamic performances, Memory Marrow was nominated for best indie/alt album by Independent Music Awards.

With the release of new single “Sea Bitch,” the band continues reshaping organic and electronic sounds into a dynamic structure, giving them a unique and original sound that is comparable to Foals and Local Natives, but unlike any other. The band is currently working on their next full-length, set to release mid-2015.
