Little Green Cars has been attracting a significant amount of spotlight in the music scene. Hailing from Dublin, this five-piece group can attribute its rise in attention to its dynamic yet charming performance at SXSW. Equipped with invigorating vocals and exquisite lyrics, Little Green Cars offers unmatched unique and fresh musical style which has led them to XPN’s April Artist To Watch. Working with critically-acclaimed producer Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, and Mumford and Sons), in order to perfect their debut album Absolute Zero (Glassnote Records), Little Green Cars is expected to exceed the expectations placed in them from the musical world.
Seattle band Pickwick offers a fresh sound while playing back to traditional rock and soul roots - a sound that is quickly turning this six-piece into a rising star in their local music scene with national success soon to follow. The group's debut full-length album, Can't Talk Medicine, comes out this month and is packed with great new tracks, including one featuring XPN favorite Sharon Van Etten.
