Hillstomp

Drawing heavily from North Mississippi trance blues, a bit from Appalachia and taking their unstoppable energy from rockabilly, this Portland duo balances a makeshift drumkit of buckets, cans and BBQ lids with some rambunctious slide guitar. Think old timey blues filtered through hops and the Ramones!

Whether arranging traditionals, classics, or deceptively stark original songs, Hillstomp has duct-taped together a distinctive sound that has quickly made them favorites up and down the West coast. Their third and latest release, After Two But Before Five, is a live album, showcasing the electricity of a Hillstomp peformance while introducing new songs in their growing reportoire of "Bucket ‘n Slide Rock ‘n Roll."

"Even for blues nuts, Hillstomp doesn't sound like anything that's come before it. While Johnson bangs out clanking beats on his modified kit.... Kammerer slips and slides around his guitar like a kid on a waterslide. Melodies zip and splash about. Mammoth grooves seemingly appear out of nowhere. It's all primitive and natural, like it sprung up from the ground." - Jeff Inman, Las Vegas City Life

Glitterfox

 

After taking home the grand prize win at Buskerfest (Long Beach's largest and longest-running battle-of-the-bands competition) and being named "Best Folk Act" by the OC Weekly, the on-stage bandmates and off-stage girlfriends of Glitterfox (formerly Bearcoon) made a bold decision: to sell 95% of their possessions, quit their jobs, give up their apartment, and begin touring the country full-time. 

 

The duo spent the next two years living in their Chevy G20 van, touring the country full-time, and making appearances at some of Southern California's most noteworthy festivals - Joshua Tree Music Festival, Music Tastes Good, and multiple appearances at the Long Beach Folk Revival Festival.

 

Glitterfox has released two studio albums, the first of which, El Guapo, reached the #1 spot on amazon.com's "Hot New Releases" list and would later go on to be voted "Long Beach Album of the Year." Summed up best by Live Rock Gig: "El Guapo is a collection of poetic lyrics combined with spellbinding harmonies... a profoundly heartfelt collection of recordings."

 

Glitterfox is currently finishing up their third studio album with plans to release in September 2019.
