Music Submission, Peter Kleinhans

Artist or Band Name: 
Peter Kleinhans

Peter Kleinhans (whose first album, "Something's Not Right," was hailed as "thoughtful, engaging, and refreshes older styles in a bold new fashion," by Neufutur Magazine) has just released his second album, "I Was Alive Enough." 

Kleinhans is a single father of two, and a former career horse racer who was forced to give up his vocation at the age of 47. In a search for new meaning, he took an introductory song writing course. Over the next five years, he wrote the lyrics and music to his debut album, which was produced by acclaimed producer Tony Conniff, at the age of 51.

"I Was Alive Enough" explores the present moment of social isolation we are currently living in - with songs about our fear of missing out ("FOMO") and greed ("Race to the Bottom") as well as mistrust of the media ("Fake News"). But it's also hopeful and spirited, about appreciation for NYC graffiti ("91st Street"), a love of horse-racing ("W1775") and the power and joy of solitude ("Table for One"). The lyrics, as always, are the standout - and Peter has really written from the heart. 

Music Submission, Jakob Drummond

Jakob Drummond - Beating A Dead Horse (Single)
Artist or Band Name: 
Jakob Drummond

“Beating a Dead Horse” (BADH) is the newest genre-defying single from Alternative-Country musician, Jakob Drummond. 

Locked and loaded with Western imagery, Jakob tells the tragic story of outlaw “Addison West” as he roams the Great Plains with his band of thieves. 

BADH is a fast, pounding, experimental rock track featuring a unique line-up of instruments including high speed, slapped upright bass, pounding, gritty drums reminiscent of psychedelic garage rock and distorted, ethereal guitars that embody the depth of 90’s Post punk. 

The punchy verses of BADH are delivered quickly in a unique rhythmic formula that nods to classic hip-hop and is followed by a dream-like, atmospheric chorus that yields an intensely catchy melody that builds with each repeat. 

First Verse: 0:38

First Chorus: 0:58

Music Submission, ALIEN GIRL

Artist or Band Name: 
ALIEN GIRL

Evan and Evan are a guy and a girl with the same name in the indie-folk band Alien Girl. 

When Evan was 9 years old she lived in Kansas. One day she drew a picture of Mars in art class. She told her classmates she was an alien. They called her alien girl. This was her name from then on. 

When Evan was 9 years old he lived in Portland, Oregon. He was a strange child who dreamed of being a mad scientist. This was his dream from then on. 

When Evan got older his room was red, and he lived on a mattress on the floor. When Evan got older she wrote stories about flowers who fell in love. 

Their greatest influences include Shah Jahan, Carl Jung, and Conway Twitty. Auteurs and astronauts by nature, they make all of their music and films together in Northern California.

Music Submission, Love Crumbs

Artist or Band Name: 
Love Crumbs
Bio: Love Crumbs hails from Western and Central Massachusetts. Folk music forged from where blue collar folks mingle with the erudite.
 
Love Crumbs delivers a captivating powerful and controlled female vocal sound over jangly acoustic guitar-themed stylings. The songwriting is a mix of prosaic and abstract ballads - on themes of love, loss, pain, addiction and contemporary social issues.
 
The folks in the band have all overcome varying levels of adversity to give you the crumbs of their love. Some have come from addiction and homelessness into recovery replete with home and family. Some have stared depression and mania in the eyes and come out the other side to tell the tale. All are parents to little ones. When they are not giving their hearts to their husbands, wives, and kids, they give it all that’s left on the stage...the crumbs of their love.
