Bird's Eye (Album Release)
Bird’s Eye is a Madison six-piece creating funky hip hop with live instrumentation. Building cred steadily since 2013, they now fill venues alongside other prime acts both local and touring. Shows are characterized by the band’s ability to engage a crowd and surprise even devoted fans when inviting guests to share the stage impromptu.

The rhythm section—featuring Evan’s explorative bass, Sean’s refined drumming, and Lauren adorning the mix with keys, vocals and sax—builds a groove-driven foundation for Ra Fury’s cutting lyricism, Joe’s wah-wah counterpoint on guitar, and Hannah’s soulful lead-singing. All six are uniquely valued because everyone has a part in each song that makes it so recognizable. Bird’s Eye plays at least monthly in the Madison area and has demos posted on Soundcloud and Youtube—show your support!
Coyote
Coyote
Coyote is a four piece rock 'n' roll band out of southern Wisconsin. After playing music together for over 5 years, Isaac Young, Andy Goitia, and Ed Kosmatka formed Coyote in the summer of 2016 as an evolution of their old project. In September, Mikey Juszcyk joined the band on bass and was an instant fit. The winter of 2016 has Coyote focusing on the final stages of their debut LP 'Fool's Gold' while also touring their Wisconsin stomping grounds and surrounding Midwestern states. Their sound is a nostalgic and organic blend of rock, americana, funk, and jazz, bringing a truly unique experience to every show.

The boys from Taboo Blah Blah were sitting in a stone shelter tucked deep in the woods and drinking wine when I finally found them. On the south end, some trash from a few years of miscreants piled up in the long-unused fireplace and crude graffiti marred the walls. As we hugged out our greetings, the wind kicked up and a thirty-foot tree crashed to the forest floor just outside the shelter. Somehow it seemed like a good sign.

In that limestone oasis amidst the sea of hardwoods, we joked and laughed. These are four young musicians, folk artists with an ear for R&B, 80s pop and freestyle rap battles.

Gavin has sung and played the violin since he was a wee lad sporting a bowl cut, supporting his family by busking in the subway tunnels of gritty Rockford, Illinois. The other vocalist and guitarist, Lincoln, rode the rails with Kerouac, only to be cryogenically frozen as part of MK-Ultra and subsequently released to commemorate the 1990 Olympic games. Percussionist and mascot, Cameron recently abdicated the throne of a tiny kingdom in the Slavic nations and is finishing his dissertation on behavioral economics at Devry University. Little is known about their bassist, Ian. Many speculate that he is in fact a clairvoyant. He ceaselessly denies these allegations, but his impeccable intuition is undeniable.

Four very different people making music that brings people together. The shows started as the prelude to a bacchanal but have since taken their own life, the songs began as vague sing-alongs and by now each word seems perfectly placed, a reflection of a changing world seen by old souls through fresh eyes. This life requires intentionally reckless dispensation of both debauchery and honor in equal measure, and these boys have both to spare. Later that day they had to settle on a name. A few horrible ideas were tossed around until the worst possible one was finally chosen. Everyone I speak to universally agrees that the name has got to go. But the more I think on it, the more I feel it might be perfect.

In times like these, the truth lies somewhere between the unspeakable and the absurd. That is where you’ll find Taboo Blah Blah.
