Mary Bue was originally from Princeton Minnesota, and is now based in Minneapolis. She’s been in the music business for nearly twenty years and finds creativity in the dark aspects of life, through which she’s able to come up with a melancholy vibe, while at the same time not becoming too cynical. Mary’s latest track, ‘The Shit I Left In Duluth’, is her latest release.
Starting up in 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia, The Coathangers had very modest ambitions, playing no-wave and irreverent garage rock. But the trio, who comprise Julia Kugel on guitar, Meredith Franco on bass, and Stephanie Luke on drums (all three take vocal duties), were serious about their craft, and that dedication made for incredible live performances, as well as infectious records.
IIIZ (pronounced ‘Eyes’), a relatively new EDM band from Palm Desert, California (home of Coachella) are a very exciting band for a number of reasons.
First up, the quartet are aged between 14 and 18. Second, they are the first band to play EDM live onstage – an entire band making the music, as opposed to just a DJ. In doing so, IIIZ have effectively, in their innovation, created a new musical genre.
