The Exits
The Exits
Brooklyn indie rockers The Exits bring fresh energy and attitude to a genre ready for resuscitation. A tight trio, The Exits have a swaggering New York style in the vein of predecessors like The Strokes and The Velvet Underground, and a songwriting approach inspired by everything from American standards to Allen Ginsberg and the rock and roll lineage from The Beatles to Nirvana.

The Exits are Jared Schneider (guitar/lead vocals), Ryan Calabrese (drums/vocals), and Tom Harrison (bass). Schneider and Calabrese met as students in college. Schneider’s taut songwriting delivers tales of city life and romance through catchy melodies that bend your ear on their way to permanently lodging themselves in your brain. Add to the mix a solid groove from the rhythm section and you’ve got the DNA of a serious rock and roll band.

The band’s presentation is unmistakably rock & roll but the group is no throwback. The Exits are defined by modern songwriting and production, and their forward-thinking approach, with colors from R&B and electro, can help the genre hit refresh.
Brett Newski & The No Tomorrow
Brett Newski & The No Tomorrow
Living on four continents in five years, Brett Newski has existed on the fringe of society and avoided the “American Dream” at all costs. At age 25, he took matters into his own hands by quitting all of his part-time jobs and becoming a full-time nomad, posting up in the nooks and crannies of earth and sub-letting rooms in Vietnam, South Africa, Germany and Wisconsin to write songs and recharge between tours.

Newski’s sophomore LP “Land, Air, Sea, Garage” was recorded at a surf camp in the Sri Lankan jungle, and at home in Wisconsin. The album is about diving into the world with no safety net and landing on your feet. It’s a smart indie rock n’ roll record with tongue-in-cheek moments that show parallels to Violent Femmes, Jonathan Richman, Mountain Goats, early Weezer, Frank Turner, & Elliot Smith.

Substance and accessibility. They’re often considered opposing forces when it comes to pop music, making it all the more impressive when a band like Scenic Route to Alaska so effortlessly delivers ample doses of both.

Since dropping their acclaimed third LP, Long Walk Home, in 2016, the prairie indie outfit has amassed an impressive pile of achievements and accolades at home and abroad. The album, which finds the trio effortlessly weaving catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements, led to label signings and swelling success across Europe and Australia. It also spawned number ones on CBC Radio 2 and 3, two Western Canadian Music Award nods, and numerous TV placements on major networks. Now, the band is ready to build on that success with their upcoming fourth studio album, Tough Luck.

As they did for Long Walk Home, Scenic Route to Alaska once again entered the studio with famed producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to cut the 10 tracks comprising Tough Luck. The album picks up where its heralded predecessor left off, capturing their tight and dynamic live sound with an organic and honest production that’s instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again.
