Alder Lights is an up and coming three-piece alternative-rock band. Formed in the unlikely city of Billings, Montana. Alder Lights is overflowing with creativity, intentionality, and energy.

In the early years they went through various lineup changes. According to the band, this was due to each person learning not only how to be in a band but also time management within it. Founding members Jake Goldberg (Vocals, Guitar, Keys) and Marcus Barkac (Drums) pushed forward with recording their first album. Only a few short months before release, Marcus’ brother, Kaleb Barkac (bass) joined the project. It became clear immediately this was a perfect fit.

Their debut album, Here’s To Fate, released May 7, 2016 during an album release show in their hometown. Not only was this their debut album but also their first time headlining a show. Leading up to the release, the band would create lists of people they knew from social media to message privately and ask person-by-person if they would like to purchase tickets, personally delivering tickets to people’s homes, workplace, or bars. This strategy, although tiring, paid off in a big way as they sold out the local venue. That night it became clear this project had evolved from a hobby into a passion.

Alder Lights continued playing a couple shows a year to continue building a local fanbase as well as a chance to hone in their stage presence and performance. On March 9, 2018 they released their hard hitting single, “Creatures.” This was the first song written and recorded with this lineup and signaled a change in tone for the trio. While still sounding like Alder Lights, this was a more raw and energetic sound while somehow sounding more polished and mature.

The band took the next year to begin working on their sophomore album with that new direction in mind. Still working full time jobs, this process was slower than they would have liked. However, this is a group not content with releasing mediocre or rushed content so in an age of noise and pressure to constantly release something new, the band stayed silent.

During their silence, they were anything but. In early 2019 they signed with Damon Moreno at Inner Light Agency. That March they broke their silence to play at SXSW before getting back to work on the new album. Recording began in July 2019 and wrapped up two weeks later. Leading up to their sophomore effort, Alder Lights released their first single, “Pieces”. The new album, Darkest Cameo, will release Friday November 8, 2019.

Out of the primordial soup comes A Primitive Evolution (A.P.E.). Given the gift of sentience, they are here to create a constantly evolving soundtrack to our world with their dark, alternative rock music. With its current release of full length recording “Becoming” the bands next mutation is underway. Recorded at their self-built Desolation Studios in Toronto, ON the album features collaborations with Writer / Producer Ian D’Sa (Billy Talent) and Audio Engineer Kenny Luong (MetricCancer Bats). In partnership with Metropolis Records, the band and label unleashed Becoming together, worldwide on October 5th. 2018. Known to be raw and visceral, with soul and beauty: A Primitive Evolution is best consumed at extremely loud volumes!

Awarded “Best Rock Band” by the 2015 Toronto Independent Music Awards, A Primitive Evolution has toured extensively, showcased at prestigious festivals CMWNXNE & Indie Week Canada and received strong support from Canadian Music Industry stalwarts Alan Cross (CFNY 102.1 The Edgeajournalofmusicalthings.com) and George Stroumboulopoulos (MuchMusicCBC).

Pulling together a complex array of influences including Nine Inch NailsMuseThe CureToolThe ProdigyMinistryRadioheadU2VivaldiAlice in ChainsGuns N’ Roses and more, A Primitive Evolution’s rhythm-based attack blurs the lines of rock, electronica and all aspects between.

“Creation is evolution” observes A.P.E. singer Brett Carruthers, “that’s what I figure we’re trying to say with A Primitive Evolution. As evolved as we think we are as humans or animals, we are very much at the beginning of the evolution of mankind. We have so much to learn and yet so much has changed in the last hundred years. We have a long way to go as a species. We want our band to reflect that too, showing our raw emotions, doing it out of instinct and evolving naturally; not overthinking, just having some fun existing on this planet.”

COYOTE KID Channel QUENTIN TARANTINO in Modern Film Noire, Official Music Video for “Femme Fatale”!

IMG 5993e2 1

Minnesota based, cinematic rock band COYOTE KID has released the darkly film noir music video for their new single, “Femme Fatale,” the first single off of their upcoming album, The Skeleton Man. Originally premiered on mxdwn.com, “Femme Fatale” was directed by Christopher Behnen and Dena Winter.

“We’re thrilled to present ‘Femme Fatale. A Tarantino inspired short film shot entirely on real 16mm film, telling the story of a dangerous woman and her vampiric car.” – COYOTE KID

player

“The clip begins ominously, with headlights illuminating a remote wildland, crickets humming and a appropriately, a coyote cackling in the distance. We’re introduced to the central character of the video, our “Femme Fatale.” She enters the shot walking back to the car that has its headlights on, carrying a gasoline container. We soon find out what the purpose of the canister is — and it’s not because she ran out of gas on a lonely highway and had to walk to the nearest service station to fill up the container.

Then, the music finally enters the mix and it’s heart-pounding rock ‘n roll, with lead singer Austin Durry’s vocals cutting powerfully through the mix. Throughout the song, accompaniment like Baumgartner’s trombone add to the swinging The video focuses on the engine of our anti-hero’s VW bug, which pounds and pulsates as she drives, leaking a mysterious red substance. In the next scene, she picks up a man who appears to be assaulting someone, seemingly easy pickings for the “Femme Fatale.”

But first she makes a kill with the unsuspecting man sleeping in the back of the car. As a jogger runs by she bludgeons him to death with a wrench, with her new friend helping out with the assault. At this point, it becomes clear that the woman is killing to feed her car’s insatiable thirst for blood..” – MATT MATASCI– mxdwn.com

CK COVER PHOTO kickstarter

The band has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund The Skeleton Man, a full-length, cinematic alt-rock concept album, telling the post-apocalyptic, western tale of The Coyote Kid.

“This new story album is titled The Skeleton Man. The sound is large and aggressive, but more stylistically diverse then any of our previous releases. We wanted to take the cinematic sound we established in our previous albums and expand it to encompass more musical influences and a larger emotional range. From dynamic drums, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti-western guitars, to soaring trumpets and bellowing trombones, the stage is set for this supernatural, post-apocalyptic western. This is, by far, the most dynamic work we have ever compiled. Each record will be pressed on beautiful marble vinyl, and will include the full album story and lyrics, a poster insert, and a pair of red and blue lenses that reveal both sides of The Skeleton Man cover art.”

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Coyote Kid’s sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry’s true grit voice alongside Cassandra’s crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrusted foreword by shimmering spaghetti-western guitars, growling base, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between. Previously known as Marah in the Mainsail, Coyote Kid has been earning their stripes and touring the US and Canada since 2015, slowly carving their unique place between genres in the music industry.
