MOTOPONY
Throughout history, individuals have been playing with the delicate balance between polarities. Often, the combination of two opposites makes for a harmony previously unknown, a sum greater than its parts. Motopony is the embodiment of this notion – a band built on a bedrock of contrasts and the gorgeous alchemy of seemingly conflicted sounds, and the feelings mapped over them. Guided by soulful machines Daniel Blue and Buddy Ross along with guitarist Brantley Cady and drummer Forrest Mauvais, there is a warm efficiency to the hard-soul/glitch-folk contained on the quartet's self-titled debut.

LADYLIKE
The quirky pomp and camp that is Ladylike began when former bandmates Rob Kroehler (vocals, guitar, piano) and Ryan Casey (guitar, banjo) went underway looking for new musicians to join their creative escapades. That same year, Alex Tighe (keyboards, etc.) and Ethan Hillis (drums) moved home to Phoenix looking for the same thing. Through a culmination of studio sessions and live rehearsals, Ladylike was formed and a three-song EP (Ladylike, Vol. 1) was released. One year later, Ladylike locked down their final permanent member, Austin Owen (bass) and began working on their distinguished sound.

By April 2011, Ladylike hit the road to record their self-titled debut album in Eudora, Kansas at Blacklodge Recording with engineer-producer Nick Day. The album calls-to- mind a wide array of influences–from 50s pop to 90s Brit rock. Its first single, Cinema Kiss, was released in November 2011. Ladylike has taken the stage with national acts such as Fun., Squeeze, Kopecky Family Band, and Young the Giant. With pop-oriented, harmony-laden tunes, Ladylike brings a sense of unbridled charisma that sticks with their audiences.

Ladylike’s LP hit the shelves (and the web) in early April 2012.
