“Some of us shook hands for the first time that day,” says band leader and vocalist Aaron Guest of the initial meeting in early 2010. Incorporating genres that not only include bluegrass, but also world, country, Celtic, reggae and rock into a cohesive sound might have been impossible if each member of Polecat hadn’t learned the rules before breaking them. The group is well-seasoned, having performed nearly 100 shows a year since its inception, but at that first meeting, Polecat didn’t even have a name.
The following five years saw Polecat release two full-length albums along with steady growth throughout the Northwest as each band member’s musical diversity allowed them to chameleon through an incredible variety of gigs and audiences. Now Polecat will hit the road for two weeks in March as direct support with Yonder Mountain String Band behind the release of a new Polecat album Into The Wind on March 11th. Polecat will then embark on a headlining tour supporting Into The Wind in April. [bio via fanatic]

Following on from the acclaimed eponymous debut album of 2014, the Julia/Spring 7″ single is another deep shot of Lowtide’s euphoric dream pop, released in July of this past year. Recorded in Melbourne by Matthew Hosking (VHS Dream), ‘Julia‘ was originally written and recorded in 1988 by the French band Asylum Party.
Driven by mechanical rhythms and buzz-saw guitar leads, the blissful dual vocals of Lucy Buckeridge and Giles Simon lend the Lowtide version a hazy glow that transcends the cold wave original. The video for this two-song release was directed by Jamieson Moore and can be found further below.Julia by Lowtide is licensed under a Attibution 3.0 Unported License Julia HypeMachine
This week’s show is a bit later than I had planned, in part because of a long and unexpected family road trip over the weekend, and in part because I didn’t see point in trying to compete for attention with the Super Bowl — although this week’s playlist probably makes for a better halftime show than the one we got. It features a few classics from some old yearbook and anniversary episodes, too, just because I got to hear them again during the long weekend drive and felt they were worth sharing one more time.
Just a bit more than half this week’s songs are on Spotify, so I added them to this playlist. Search for “Dave’s Lounge” on Spotify to find more great playlists.
Playlist for Dave’s Lounge #323:
- (00:10) Christian Erickson, “Away Too Long”
- (05:17) Captain Supernova (feat. Laura Mace), “Leaving the Past Behind”
- (09:21) Gone Gone Beyond, “Aint Givin’ Up on Love”
- (13:21) The Human Experience (ft. Lila Rose), “Dusted Compass”
- (17:33) Lo Tide (feat. Sarah Shamash), “He’s Coming Closer”

“Too Many Humans is a Denver based progressive rock band that was originally formed between two brothers in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Their music has typically been compared to artists like Royal Blood, Muse, Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Foals, Arctic Monkeys, and Nine Inch Nails but their goal is to sound like Too Many Humans.” [bio]

“Watch the Video for the first track, today’s Dose, “Kentucky Gentleman” below
“Four Day Beard’s debut eponymous release is a brooding contemplation of feelings of alienation, heartbreak & dreams of escaping the problems of modern life and ultimately redemption.
“All of this emotion and self-discovery is filtered through layers of experimental, indie rock, blues, folk and psychedelic elements resulting in artfully textured headphone friendly soundscapes.” [from bio]

Oliver Ocean formed in Nashville in the cold, early months of 2014 bringing together musicians from four different regions of the United States. At first, the band-members shared a common love for simply recording their improv jams until they grew more comfortable with molding their ideas into something a bit more concrete.
Today’s feature, Carried Under, comes from the Until I Go EP released July 1, 2015. The band has also announced in the last few days they are currently working on a release in 2016, Leave a Light On which they’ve posted a teaser for on their SC page below.Carried Under by Oliver Ocean is licensed under a Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License Carried Under HypeMachine
