Landlady
Landlady
"Landlady occupy a big middle space always in need of willing entrants: brainy, melodic pop-rock. They move through their second record Upright Behavior like the USS Sincerity, offering to share with you in your biggest fears: death, loneliness, lack of purpose." - Pitchfork

"This is the part of the song when we come together," Adam Schatz's voice rings out. "There's no before. There's no after. There's only this." Schatz leads Landlady, the Brooklyn five-piece whose 2014 Hometapes debut, Upright Behavior, boldly disrupts the notion of genre and reveals the soulful and continually-resonating work of Schatz and core band members Ian Chang, Ian McLellan Davis, Booker Stardrum, and Will Graefe, as well as a cast of NYC-based contributors gathered from Schatz's tandem walks of life as a solo musician, improviser, organizer, collaborator, promoter, and writer. Compared to rock and roll juggernauts like The Band and Talking Heads, Landlady merge vast skill, a bend toward experimentation, and a proven belief that songs can be a true extension of the human experience. The result is timeless and charted by their recorded works and transformative live shows - both critically-acclaimed and ever-evolving. Landlady released a new EP, Heat, this summer, in tandem with nationwide tours with Son Lux and Buke and Gase.
Cassandra Jenkins
Cassandra Jenkins
A songwriter who "knows how to leave an impression" with "elegantly celestial climaxes, emerald green-glowing guitar work"(Pitchfork) and "smoky" vocals (NPR), Cassandra stokes the campfire with the kind of pop that steals your breath and replaces it with a limb-surrendering rhythm.
Gregory Uhlmann
Gregory Uhlmann combines lush, hypnotic minimalist chamber pop with compelling, introspective folk melancholy. Nuanced interplay between guitar and voice is central to much of his new record, "Odd Job", at times using bass clarinet, pump organ, viola, among many other sophisticated acoustic flourishes to fill out this gorgeous, meditative body of work.

Uhlmann's first solo endeavor travels a different, more intimate path than much of his more established output so far - like the rhythmically globetrotting experimental rock outfit Fell Runner and his improvisational jazz trio Typical Sisters - aiming for subtlety and slow immersion on ‘Odd Job’. Produced himself along with frequent collaborator Tim Carr (Haim), Uhlmann's remarkable harmonic sense and sidewinding song craft reveals itself along the way offering glimpses of hope and romanticism throughout the darkness channeling disparate echoes of Nick Drake, Philip Glass, and Ali Farka Toure.

An incredibly prolific young musician, Uhlmann's ambitious list of projects and collaborations is quickly becoming nearly too much to even list completely - growing longer by the day. In addition to the aforementioned Fell Runner and Typical Sisters; Uhlmann is part of multi-media project SHUTTER (w/ Andy Clausen of The Westerlies), guested on Matt Kivel's new album, composes for River Song Quintet, slangs guitar for Similar Fashion, as well as playing many iterations of his name followed by trio, quartet, septet, etc.
