Aaron West And The Roaring Twenties

Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties is as much a band as it is a story.
The band plays Americana, sometimes with 6 or 8 or 10 people–a horn section, banjo,
lap steel, strings and more–and sometimes as one man with an acoustic guitar and his
voice. It’s rock & roll with fragmented pieces of punk and country and troubadour-style
sing-songwriter music taking influence from Springsteen, Rilo Kiley, and The
Weakerthans. Some nights, it’s somber and intimate. Some nights, it’s loud, bombastic and joyous.

The story follows a man named Aaron who, on the band’s debut release, “We Don’t
Have Each Other,” suffers a series of severe losses that reshape his life entirely. In the
intervening years, cataloged on the new sophomore LP, “Routine Maintenance,” the
story follows Aaron through sublets, bar fights, train yards, fire escapes, truck stops and
the basement of a county church in search of something resembling purpose and redemption.

Both are the creation of Dan Campbell, best known as the vocalist of Philadelphia band,
The Wonder Years who performs the songs live in character for a show that feels in part
theatric. Formed in 2013, Campbell has continuously added layer after layer to the
Aaron West universe, ensuring that every show and milestone is factored into the bigger
picture and creating a story so meticulously crafted that it’s easy to forget it’s a story at all.

Wild Pink

Wild Pink’s warm, reflective indie rock tunes follow the soft-spoken lead of singer and songwriter John Ross. The group delivered their eponymous full-length debut in 2017. Their more expansive third album, 2021’s A Billion Little Lights, enlisted help from session musicians and Grammy-winning engineer David Greenbaum. Ross formed Wild Pink in New York with bassist T.C. Brownell and drummer Dan Keegan. After sharing a two-track release, they made their label debut with the EP Good Life on Texas Is Funny Records in June 2015. That led to a record deal with Tiny Engines, which issued the EP 4 Songs in 2016. The band’s debut album, Wild Pink, arrived on Tiny Engines in early 2017. They co-produced their next album with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh). The resulting Yolk in the Fur came out in mid-2018. March 2019’s 5 Songs was their final release with Tiny Engines. The trio’s more ambitious third album, A Billion Little Lights, was produced, mixed, and co-engineered by David Greenbaum (Beck, Jenny Lewis) and involved the participation of various friends and session musicians. Arriving in early 2021, it marked Wild Pink’s debut for Royal Mountain Records.

Carly Cosgrove

Philadelphia trio Carly Cosgrove’s debut LP, See You In Chemistry, is about growth, but not the tidy, Instagram-ready kind. At its beginning, vocalist and guitarist Lucas Naylor is steady, stable, and happy: the work has been done, progress has been made, things are alright. Over the remaining 11 tracks, and across a complex, earworm patchwork of riotous emo punk, towering post-hardcore, mathy indie rock, and crystalline shoegaze, things fall apart: bands dissolve, friendships end, and self-doubt, depression and anxiety triple-team their way to victory over happiness. 
 The band recorded with producer Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Joyce Manor) at his Headroom Studios over a week in June 2021, with the intention to create a record with three people that sounds like a five-piece band. Style and substance were of equal importance: the music had to be peppy and sincere, hyper and bombastic while maintaining a high degree of technical and structural complexity. 
 See You In Chemistry inverts the pop culture myth that our experiences lead us to one static way of being. The reality that Carly Cosgrove share on their debut is that no person is final, no thing is sure and certain. Coming to understand this truth is as important as the life-long processes that comprise it. See You In Chemistry is a hopeful invitation to a better place, a better way, a better life—somehow, somewhere down the line.
