Russell James Debuts "Ghosts"


Wave/Water Now Available 

"Folk rock Americana as bright and crisp as a spring morning, but as bronze as autumn leaves." - Impose

"Inspired by struggle, triumph, the natural world, and spoken with a sincerity that touches deep..." - Glide

Russell James' path to the release of "Ghosts" was one of absolute grit and willpower. For the better part of 2017, James, who lives his life with the audio integration disorder hyperacusis, complicated by parallels to the autism spectrum and a personal battle with PTSD and anxiety, felt as though he was standing in the shadow of his depression. From the darkness, James found glimmers of hope during the process of recording Wave/Water, which he self-released on April 20, 2018.

The album concentrates profoundly on hope and the impact it can have on a person's life. Throughout Wave/Water, James insistently underlines the notion that no one is alone in fighting life's battles... that every person is weathering the pressures of something every day. Because of this unifying connection, James asserts that we're all in this together and hopes, eventually, that we can all lean on each other for support.

"Depression is always with me...there's always an undercurrent of depression that will poke its head up once every two days even when I'm feeling good," he told Substream Magazine, who premiered "Ghosts," the first track from Wave/Water - PRESS HERE to listen. "I want people to know that because you can be in the darkest period, that doesn't mean you can't do anything about it."

"My mental health puts a lot of occupational limits on me but songwriting remains unaffected," he adds. "I get a sense of coping and healing from the creative practice as well as the sense that I still have something to give and we all need something that helps us push back what haunts us."

Tell Me That You Love Me: The @underhillfamily Orchestra Fri. 5/25 @OutlandBallroom + #FrontOfHouseLounge + Sat. 5/26 @WestportRoots Festival + Sun. 5/27 In #RosePark By @RoseMusicHall

The Underhill Family Orchestra will be performing some events over Memorial Day Weekend around this region. The first two are on Friday, May 25th at The Outland Complex in Springfield, Missouri. The Outland Ballroom show runs from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm. They are also scheduled at the Front Of House Lounge with a 9:00 pm start time.

On Saturday, May 26th they are going to be a part of the Westport Roots Festival happening Friday, May 25th through Sunday, May 27th. It features 65 bands on two stages during Memorial Day weekend in Westport of Kansas City, Missouri. Visit HERE for the event details on Facebook.

Then on Sunday, May 27th the band will be at Rose Park by Rose Music Hall in Columbia, Missouri for the Official Pedaler's Jamboree afterparty. The gates open at 5:00 pm and the show starts at 6:00 pm. It is free to attend, but donations are encouraged. Visit HERE for the event details on Facebook. The 10th Anniversary ride begins on Saturday. Continue on below to visit the group online and for the latest on their new music.



The Underhill Family Orchestra's debut album, Tell Me That You Love Me (stream at Spotify or Soundcloud), is out now via Skate Mountain Records. The album is a beautifully-constructed foot-stomping collection of ten tunes that capture the raw energy of the band's live show, which DittyTV calls "one of the most kinetic and absolutely captivating performances…Underhill deliver a wide range of sounds from stomp-and-holler rock to tenderhearted tales of finer feelings betrayed. Their upcoming album, Tell Me That You Love Me, will solidify their reputation as one of Americana’s must-see live bands."

No Depression premiered the album,saying that the band "has an intense and irresistible chemistry. The songs on this album are full of chemical reactions that are a pleasure to behold. Truly, the album is a testament to the power of people working together. "PopMatters noted in the premiere of  debut single "When The Trumpet Sounds" that the band is "taking their music scene by storm with their uninhibited and celebratory blend of Southern influences. The folk-rocking quintet is intent on resurrecting American roots music with a contemporary soulful rock flair that will undoubtedly get audience members out of their chairs and grooving along," while Beehive Candy says the album's second single "Chickasaw Fields," which premiered via Popdust, has “gorgeous roots-flavoured vibes. The mixed vocals and harmonies are sublime, the band create a feisty backdrop...this really is 'more please' music.”

Tell Me That You Love Me, produced by Noah Shain, swirls with soulful harmonies, powerful riffs and gut-punching rhythms; the band's deeply-rooted Southern influences are on full display as the Mobile, Alabama-based collective explores the ideas of togetherness, love, and finding "what makes you a kid again." From New Orleans second-line brass, to swamp-infused blues-rock, nods to spirtuals and spoken recollections from bandmember Joelle Rosen's Maw Maw Ida about meeting, and losing, the love of her life, it's impossible to remain unmoved by Tell Me That You Love Me

LA-based sister duo Chaos Chaos, whose single“Terryfold” with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland soared to #33 on the Billboard Hot Rock Song chartrelease their highly anticipated self-titled debut album today. The album premiered on L’Officiel USA who raved that Chaos Chaos“rings with reverberations of musicians like Lorde, tapping into this generation’s appetite for spirited synthpop, vibrant beats, and pensive lyrics”. The 10-track album features lead single “Pink Politics”, which Billboard raved as “a defiant dance jam, whipped together during a polarizing time in history”.  See full album tracklisting below.

"I love disturbing, slightly melancholic scenes. I like where that meets the world of peace and normalcy. A tinge of strangeness hangs in certain scenes of the world and music opens up that door." - Asy
"There’s something about anonymity that is powerful and I think releasing music taps into this. This anonymous handshake/exchange with strangers allows you into their deepest emotions and allows them into yours. Brings you face to face with something inherent that connects us." - Chloe

Listen to/Share “Pink Politics” HERE


Chaos Chaos will be performing songs off their album on their spring headlining tour which will make stops in New York at Baby’s All Right on June 2th and The Echo in Los Angeles on June 8th. (See full tour itinerary below)  All tickets can be purchased at


Born in Seattle at the height of the grunge era, LA-based duo Chaos Chaos is made up of sisters Asy and Chloe Saavedra. Growing up, Asy and Chloe picked up instruments and songwriting at ages 8 and 10, formed the band Smoosh and by age 15, released three critically acclaimed albums, toured and performed with the likes of Sleater-Kinney and Death Cab for Cutie, and performed at Lollapalooza and on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! In 2012, Asy and Chloe formed Chaos Chaos. The sisters went on to compose music for Rick and Morty and released their first single “Dripping with Fire”, which Noisey called “a surreal dive into themes like sisterhood, estrangement and growing older”. Both “Dripping with Fire” and new single “Pink Politics”, which Billboard called “a defiant dance jam, whipped together during a polarizing time in history” are off the band’s self-titled debut LP out today.


Chloe has been featured in Modern Drummer, is endorsed by Paiste, and has guest drummed on Late Night With Seth Meyers while Asya was a featured vocalist in Stuart Murdoch of Belle and Sebastian’s God Help the Girl album and has done analog synth-based scoring for video games and TV shows TBA soon. The two are proactive with their music and have recently teamed up with a Brooklyn prison to bring their live show to inmates. “As a female musician and someone who cares deeply about equality, I feel it’s my responsibility to consider whatever voice I have. I’m not afraid to destruct walls I believe to be unjust. I love music because it provides a platform for this but also because it makes us aware of both something temporary and something eternal in us. Songs provide a meeting point of these two things in a way I’ve been in love with for as long as I can remember.” – Asy
