Born and raised Lower East Sider Jeffrey Lewis leads a double-life, as both a comic book writer/artist and a musician (or is that a triple-life?). His band Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard also has a schizophrenic existence, ranging between contemplative folk narratives and distortion-fueled garage rock. Live shows incorporate „low budget videos,“ Jeff’s large illustrations displayed to accompany certain songs, such as Jeff’s educational multi-part „History of Communism“ or flights of fancy like „The Creeping Brain.“ In 2001 Jeffrey Lewis signed to Rough Trade Records (The Smiths, The Strokes, Belle & Sebastian, etc) and has since released five albums, in addition to touring the world and performing with Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Devendra Banhart, Black Dice, Thurston Moore, The Fall, The Vaselines, Beth Orton, Frank Black, The Fiery Furnaces, Daniel Johnston, Scout Niblett, The Mountain Goats, The Moldy Peaches, Cornershop, The Cribs, Dr. Dog, Kimya Dawson, Adam Green, Akron/Family, Roky Erickson, Au Revoir Simone, Peter Stampfel, and other luminaries.
VIKING MOSES was initiated by Southern Missourian Brendon Massei in 2003. The band has a dynamic, rotating cast of both established and obscure musicians worldwide, and is currently based between Scotland (UK) and Northern Appalachia (USA). More straight forward rock/soul than weird/folk as most of their contemporaries seem to be marketed, Viking Moses’ recordings are very accessible in convention, though live shows normally tend to have an unconventional approach, being hosted in unorthodox venues, often having assembled bands just for the night, using members of support bands or strangers in the audience. Both aspects are delivered with utmost soul, passion, and humility, and always offer fans and strangers an experience which is unique and often contrary to expectation. Massei is loosely associated with the freak/weird folk movement, having gotten early exposure on the „Golden Apples of the Sun„ compilation; he also played bass with both Devendra Banhart and Vetiver.However, he takes on not the hearts-and-unicorns fancies of new folk, but rather the more plainspoken, sparse aura of Palace Brothers and Bonnie Prince Billy. It’s no surprise really, since he records chez Paul Oldham in Kentucky.
Singer/songwriter wunderkind Joey DeMarco, from Fredricksburg, Virginia, was discovered by Brendon Massei (Viking Moses) as he was still finishing High School. His perfectly crafted bedroom pop songs and smart, happy/sad lyrics belie his teenage years and forecast a major artistic force to be reckoned with. On his first shows outside the US, he will bring along his debut album on Epiphysis Foundation, gently yet brilliantly produced by Viking Moses himself.
