“I think people are surprised when they come to see us live.” says Peter Liddle, heavily tattooed frontman of London’s Dry the River. “They expect us to be really calm and quiet but in some ways we're the opposite.” You can see why people get confused: this five-piece band has all the hallmarks of the latest folk sensation: elemental name, beards, acoustic guitars, even a violinist. But what sets Dry the River apart is a background in hardcore and post-punk bands, hence the tattoos, lyrics that read like a Steinbeck novel and a sonic palette that sweeps from gentle to giant like an incoming storm. “Emo has become a term of derision, but originally it meant emotive hardcore - all these DC bands like Indian Summer, Rites of Spring, Antioch Arrow who wanted to move away from political music to express personal things in an intense and energetic way. They screamed and cried in their sets and more often than not sounded like an amplified food blender,” says Liddle. “But the underlying idea is cool: although it's important to play with passion, I believe that there should be an emotional underpinning to all music and all performance." Ahead of the release of their debut album ‘Shallow Bed’ in March 2012, the band hoped their particular musical heritage and circuitous journey would shine through. “I'd be pleased if people felt that it’s not just another indie folk record,” says Liddle. “I think we’ve agonised over every note of it. It has some hooks and big melodies but it's contemplative and considered too.” Dry the River have laid the groundwork for a stellar end to 2012. Don’t call them the next great folk band. Just call them the next great band, full stop. <http://www.drytheriver.net> http://www.facebook.com/drytheriver> http://www.youtube.com/drytheriverofficial Die aus Oberösterreich stammende, nun in Wien angesiedelte Quintett LIKEWISE, drei Männer, zwei Frauen, ist musikalisch auf der Folk-Rock-Schiene unterwegs und lässt gerne mal einen dezenten Hang zum Alternative-Country in seinen Lieder erkennen, Lieder, die von Heimatgefühl, Freundschaft und Liebe handeln und getragen sind vom harmonischen Kontrast einer männlichen und zweier weiblicher Stimmen. Bei all dem bewegt sich das Quintett derart sicher auf Konzertbühnen, dass man meinen könnte, Likewise wollten nie wieder etwas Anderes tun. <http://www.facebook.com/LikewiseMusic
