89.3 The Current presents ABY WOLF: “WOLF LORDS” CD Release Show
Vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Aby Wolf has been creating thoroughly unique music for years, between backup singing gigs with Dessa, Brother Ali, and others. Her latest project is a duo with multi-instrumentalist and producer Grant Cutler (LookBook, Solid Gold, Zoo Animal, Jeremy Messersmith). This exciting new collaboration promises to straddle several genres, creating soundscapes that are at once lush and minimal, groove-oriented and sparse.
The last decade or so has brought the music world a lot of things it didn’t have before, but for Ander Other the most notable thing the new millennium brought was probably the ability for a teenager to, as he puts it, “bug the shit out of” his favorite musicians on the internet.

Local quartet Demographics clearly have their eyes set on lofty heights with If Ever, their dizzyingly ambitious debut. They're the rare art-rockers who let their love for deep grooves and buttery R&B shine through in their songs, resulting in some seriously tasty space-age slow jams."Not to sound all fatherly and wise, but we all grew up in a time when people still bought albums," offers band drummer/production wizard Ryan Mach. "The mindset of music may be changing now, but I like the idea of albums that really feel like a comprehensive snapshot of a band."
