Formed in 1996 in Portland, Oregon, Kind of Like Spitting, led by singer-songwriter Ben Barnett, regularly toured in the US and released twelve albums in seven years. They broke-up in 2006 but Barnett re-formed the band last year and recently released their first new set of music in over 9 years, via a split with Chicago’s Warren Franklin and The Founding Fathers. The split titled, “It’s Always Nice To See You,” is out now on Topshelf Records.
After losing his job in 2014, Bob Nanna focused attention on his custom songwriting website, Downwrite.com, which fueled the inspiration for this newest album from his solo project The City On Film, entitled “La Vella.”
Seattle buzz band Iska Dhaaf, the psych-punk duo of Nathan Quiroga and Benjamin Verdoes, released their debut album “Even the Sun Will Burn” last year and still riding its success, most recently performing at this year’s SXSW.
