“Enigmatic and eclectic are words we use to describe the puzzling, unknown and hard to classify. When something comes along that has familiarity yet is completely foreign in its overall presentation, we are determined to make sense of it. We spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to figure out what it is that is stumping us so we can put our finger on it. When we fail to recognize the anomaly, we are often surprised, impressed and elated by its newness. Ancient Posse does that. Ancient Posse brings a contemporary, innovative sound, breathing originality into the Des Moines music scene. Blurring genre lines by combining elements of R&B, trip-hop, acid jazz and dream pop, Ancient Posse is definitely hard to classify.” –Brian Campos, Pants OFF!
MAIDS’ original style of Midwest Disco is all about bringing people together in one place to have a good time and get immersed in waves of electronic dance pop. Whether the music is experienced through headphones or dancing at a live show, Danny Heggen and Mickey Davis have developed a homegrown, Midwestern concoction that reminds all of us that life, simply put, is awesome.
With their latest album 'Soul for Sale', SIRES has quite the fresh collection of diverse music. It is a refreshing reminder that rock n’ roll can be both brash and heartbreakingly seductive.
The record is a bit of an anomaly in these modern times. Sires’ soulful croon is deeply rooted in the pre-70s American songbook, while still somehow managing to blend modern Indie Rock in with the music feeling very direct and immediate. “When we set out to make this album we wanted to make something that was classic, that had a timeless quality, but still felt like a modern record."
SIRES may show their appreciation for bygone eras on Soul for Sale, but this band is definitely writing songs for this very moment.
