"If Patsy Cline, The Rolling Stones, Miles Davis and Bill Monroe had an orgy, the resulting illegitimate child might sound like The New Thoreaus"
The New Thoreaus are an indie-folk band with a bluegrass bent. They combine, blues, jazz, and good old rock and roll to create unique genre-defying blend. Since 2008, they've been rocking their diverse mix of original tunes all over the San Francisco Bay Area. The band features Sara Heller on trumpet, Chris Bloomfield on cello, Lauren Hoernig on the upright bass, Laurence Rodman on mandolin and guitar, and Ian Patton on banjo, guitar and harmonica.

Popular Culture is the innovative project of young artist, Henry Mowgli. The music is a unique combination of bleak and danceable. After two years of on and off sessions with producer Kyle Ellison (Butthole Surfers, Meat Puppets, Pariah) and Paul Barker (Ministry) in a tucked away home studio in Austin, Texas, Popular Culture's debut album Episode was recorded. Each song is a pure embrace and reflection of what ails and intrigues the human spirit. The combination of high and low end equipment used in recording creates a soundscape to mirror the balance needed to stay afloat in a young man's mind. "I don't sleep much, I get restless". Both organic and synthesized sounds fill his songs with a sense of diversity and an aspect of mystery. Pulling from influences such as Bauhaus and The Jesus and Mary Chain to Talking Heads and New Order, Popular Culture creates a contemporary outlook on archaic ideas. Young eyes on an old world.
