The Casket Girls
Can a band name contain the word “Girls” if one of their members is a guy? Why not!? Savannah-based trio, The Casket Girls is made up of sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene, teamed with Ryan Graveface (Graveface Records, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Dreamend). The band formed in 2012 and quickly put out their debut-album Sleepingwalking. Only last month, The Casket Girls second full-length True Love Kills the Fairy Tale was unleashed into an unsuspecting world. A combination of avant-garde style psych-rock and hook-filled indie pop, the album is chocked full of tight melodies, sultry vocals, and shimmery tones. Imagine an LSD-fueled world rich with color, and you’ve reached The Casket Girls’ reality.
The Stargazer Lilies
The Stargazer Lilies’s music casts a dark ambient shadow over all it touches. Members John Cep and Kim Field’s previous act, Soundpool is striped to it’s most bare essentials, creating what the band themselves describes as “no bullshit sunshine haze.” Their debut-album We Are The Dreamers was released last October, with reviews raving their ambient minimalist direction. K Field’s vocals are a light mist that envelope the listener with coupled feelings of sorrow and happiness, and their sounds conjure both your brightest fantasies and your darkest nightmares.
Dreamend is a solo venture by Ryan Graveface featuring a revolving door of freaks and weirdos (I don’t actually know them personally, they could be lovely people). Their sound is a mixture of spacey psych-rock and acoustic folk music. Its been a few years since their last release, but they have teased at new music coming this year.
