Originally from Belarus, a neighbor of Russia, childhood friends KIWI TIME relocated to San Francisco in search of the personal and musical freedom they admired and had limited access to growing up in Eastern Europe. Liberated by their new San Francisco home, the band, a taut unit of musicians and songwriters weaned on American indie rock able to create more freely. A live wall of sound, Kiwi Time was built on raw-boned energy and unflinching focus of lead singer and guitarist Yoga Shyp, the unstoppable rhythm section of singer bassist, Anna Makovchik and drummer Vlad Kukharchuk and the swirling vibrations of Mikalai Skrobat on keyboards and guitar.
During the first week of tracking Black Dream, Dangermakerâ€™s lead singer Adam Burnettâ€™s father suffered a fatal accident and suddenly passed away. Staring, for the first time, directly into the face of mortality, Burnett, though devastated, was hit hard with a dose of reality. In the months that followed, driven by the urgency of a newfound appreciation for life, Adam and Dangermaker plunged into their art, eventually emerging stronger and with a collection. In the end, the unifying experience of loss led to an increased depth of creative character that defines their brilliant new release. Channeling 70â€²s Bowie, The Clash, The Stooges, and Interpol, this core of passionate musicians has crafted a provocative debut album, which has led to recent showcases at SXSW and CMJ, propelling the band forward into 2014.
THE Y AXES
San Francisco's The Y Axes are a unique amalgam of anachronistic sound. Drawing influence from a myriad era of popular and esoteric music to craft a fun original style. Lush synths, technical guitar, and groovy rhythms help drive their quirky compelling stories about coming of age in chaos and finding love in the direst of situations. The Y Axes are pop for music nerds.
