The Districts
The Districts
"The Districts are an impressive young four-piece from Lititz, in Lancaster County. The band channeled the rock-and-soul vibe of Cold War Kids and Spoon; singer Rob Grote's searing voice cut across the concert hall, blending with the band's smartly-arranged instrumental interplay. They do the very Pixies loud-quiet-LOUD thing, but in a more textured way than simply turning their overdrive pedals on and off. A thundering swell cuts, leaving a clean guitar arpeggio floating in space as Grote catches his breath; the verses build in waves, with the heaviness sometimes derived just from Braden Lawrence's drums. Grote is an intense, emphatic, occasionally bewildering stage presence -- he kicks, stomps and snarls, both at the mic and far away -- but guitarist Mark Larson and bassist Connor Jacobus hold their own, shuffling and bobbing and giving the overall band a dynamic stage presence. Check out "Four and Four" from their album Telephone." --WXPN
Abi Reimold
Abi Reimold of Philadelphia writes dynamic, cathartic songs that are darkly colorful. Rough around the edges in a way that is more honest than careless, Reimold's music has a distinctly human quality about it. Unpredictable yet natural, Reimold's songwriting style builds tension using dissonance both harmonically and lyrically. Her voice rides a range of octaves and emotions, exploring dark inner worlds, adeptly contouring melodies to starkly vivid lyrics. Reimold has honed her songwriting ability and chops into an amalgam of rock influences – huge riffs are countered by thoughtful phrases and lyrics that are firmly rooted an introspective tradition. Her debut full-length Wriggling was released January 26th on Sad Cactus Records.
