Although the name Stelth Ulvang may not be familiar, his performance with celebrated Denver, Colorado-based folk rockers The Lumineers probably is. The band’s self-titled debut album, released in mid-2012 peaked at number two on the Billboard charts in early 2013 and has been certified platinum in the U.S. As a result, they were nominated for both Billboard Music Awards and Grammy Awards.

Duderus is an Ohio-based punk rock band who leaves the tough topics at home. Focusing on energy, fun and catchiness, they play songs about all the good stuff… friends, time travel, bandits, and things from beyond! (more…)

Dayton, Ohio’s Arms Race has been around since 2013, and are slowly in the midst of building a regional fan base.  To date, they’ve played shows with Smug Brothers, The Story Changes, The Awful Nothings, Winter Makes Sailors (We Want Action label), City Mouse (It’s Alive Records), Ultrasphinx (ex-Party of Helicopters), and more.

They recorded their demo/EP, Brought A Hug To A Gunfight, last year with Hawthorne Heights guitarist Micah Carli at his Popside Studios in Troy, Ohio and have shared it via Soundcloud. They’re currently making plans for its physical release.

’90s era indie rock and power pop is deeply embedded in the DNA of Dayton, Ohio’s Smug Brothers and for good reason.  Principal songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Kyle Melton spent the ’00s fronting unsung indie heroes Montgomery Greene, and some might recognize drummer Don Thrasher from such luminaries as Guided By Voices and Swearing At Motorists.  Additionally, both gentlemen have been the city’s predominant historians, telling the tales of rock greatness in Dayton Daily News, Dayton’s alt-weekly, and the Buddha Den music blog for well over a decade.

It’s a relatively low-key night at South Park Tavern when I join Tim Anderl and Frank Steele.  The patrons are all scattered around the establishment, as the televisions above the bar are showing one of the few college football games left in the season.  The three of us dive into a nice little collection of pizza and wings, and partake in some of the draft beers that are available to choose from. Being in the journalism field since 1996, focusing primary on the music side, Anderl’s bio comprises thousands of hours invested and  countless interviews conducted with artists that are listed in every category and genre that could be ever thought of.  Bands that tour around the United States to perform in local bar/venues, along with the ones that are seeing success that expands beyond their  wildest dreams-Anderl has the privilege and fortune of being part of the music scene for some time now. With his current roles of web editor/writer for Ghettoblaster Magazine, New Noise Magazine, along with his local work at Dayton City Paper-Anderl has become widely known for his celebrated work in the music business.  The next step towards bolstering his name started in March of  last year, when Steele and himself begun a bi-monthly podcast that is titled Sound Check Chat.

BRAT CURSE DELIVER HOOKY, MEMORABLE ROCK

By Tim Anderl

Columbus, Ohio indie rock trio Brat Curse came together by chance. They stay together by sharing their significant (and perhaps a little tongue-in-cheek) interests: drinking, “Terminator 2,” Tecmo Bowl, swimming pools, smoking bowls, popping ollies and mollies … and making memorable rock music. Their latest, self-titled record is a fuzzy, melodic, poppy album that shows off their propensity for creating noisy rock music that straddles the borders of punk, indie and rock ‘n’ roll in familiar and fantastic ways.

Dayton City Paper recently caught up with guitarist/vocalist Brian Baker, also of Astro Fang and Smug Brothers, to discuss the hooky record, which shows the band has as much in common with Baker’s self-admitted vocal hero Lou Reed as they do Superchunk, Pavement and The Pixies. (more…)
