Love. Death. Dreams. Conspiracy. Escapism. Homelessness. All put under the poetic microscope of Harry Katz’s original songwriting. With a distinct blend of classic soul and rock and roll, his uniquely raspy voice feels like the smooth veritas of an un-pulled cigarette, laying over a tight and pounding 10 piece band that turns brass into gold. His lyrics appear at first to be simple and fun, but as you go deeper into a familiar and yet fresh catalog of music, you’ll find the feeling of home on the edge of a razor. With Harry Katz, something far darker and more poignant is revealed, disguised as the most fun you can have seeing a live band. The Pistachios are preparing a live EP and a studio single. A demo is available on their website.
Tar & Flowers is a product of Taylor Hungerford’s love of the west and western myth. Growing up in the small town of Chatsworth in the west San Fernando Valley, Taylor was constantly exposed to cowboy culture during this time, with frequent trips up to the local Honkey-Tonk, the cowboy palace saloon and spending time in the surrounding mountains that had seen the many iterations of western cinema - from Stagecoach to Bonanza. Taylor’s journey into the west would continue in Colorado, where he was invited by family to be a ranch hand and cowboy for a couple of summers. Taylor would find a kindred spirit in Wolf Kroeger. Born in the south of France, Wolf’s rural upbringing would inform the album Indian Summer’s gritty desert inspired sound. Live, Taylor and Wolf are joined by Matt Brundrett on drums and composer Michael Ward and guitar and backing vocals. The group plays around Los Angeles county wherever there is a call to the open bounty of the west.
