Deep State
"Take Deep State, toiling under the low lights of Athens, making some of the best, pure-bent, rock joy heard in a generation in their crook neck portion of the east coast. Power, volume, transition, and then suddenly, they’re here: one of your new favorite bands, wearing out the motor on your turntable. Deep State formed in Athens, Georgia not so long ago. Friends from bands, college, restaurant jobs — is there any other way this is done? Ryan was getting a master’s degree in guitar performance. Taylor wanted to form an aggressive/cathartic/punk band that was undeniably catchy. Melodies were floating around constantly in Taylor’s head until the noise became too much. He asked his friends for a hand fleshing out his ideas, and lo and behold, everything meshed in a beautiful way. The songs finished themselves. As the band tells it, Ryan, Michael, and Christian are the pros, and the most amateur musician in the band fronts it. A memorable, moment-producing formula. Athens, Georgia. Just saying those words references several chapters in the music history annals, and many of those tales rattle around in the brain of Deep State. Influences stacked like pennies on the dash of the tour van: Albert Camus, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, Bent Outta Shape, Pride & Prejudice, dogs, cats, Silver Jews, NFL Football, State Champion, Devo, Harold Pinter, thousands and thousands of things, Blinky Palermo, myths. So much to answer for. Seated front to back on any given day, and given to bouts of lively conversation (trust us): Taylor Chmura (guitar, vocals), Christian Deroeck (bass), Michael Gonzalez (drums) and Ryan Gray Moore (guitar). Ideas abound, the list grows. And the best part? They’re just getting started. When searching for metaphors, forgo the thesaurus, and try these on for size: driving guitars, drums and bass, all competing for attention, while a singer describes affecting life events, whether it’s drunks in a bar or losing yourself in a guilty pleasure record. Deep State knows there’s a vapor trail of goodness that’s been spread across the planet, so there’s the challenge. Follow it. Do it."
Gas Hound
Gas Hound is a blazing cyber wolf, with relentlessly tight and engaging songwriting. The live shows have been compared to sonically re-living landscapes from the Brother’s Grimm, Pale Rider, and Jim Jarmusch’s “Dead Man.” It rumbles like a tumbleweed murder machine, slogging across the arid lands of Moab yet culls longingly to the impermanence of the “Desierto Florido” in Atacama, Chile.

Gas Hound is the desert-inspired gutter folk project of Atlanta-based writer Benjamin J. Davidow (Staff Writer at Immersive Atlanta, Lead Guitarist and Co-Composer of both The Buzzards of Fuzz and Nuncio). The project has a natural ebb and flow which comes from it’s ability to suit a wide variety of listeners needs. It is just as heavy and pleasing acoustically as it can be sweetly destroying with a full five piece band. The live lineup includes the ever cunning singer-songwriter Ethan Fogus on pedal steel and keys, Matthew J. Pendrick on the percussive resonances, Nick Whitson on auxiliary interstellar chromo-tonics, and Chris Pilson on heavy strings.

Gas Hound’s debut EP, The Postman, is set to be released in the Fall of 2016. It was recorded, mixed and produced by Damon Moon of The Cottage Recording Co.
