Hailing from West Plains, Missouri, Ha Ha Tonka has spent its past five albums working through vibrant and spirited Americana, and on this year's Heart-Shaped Mountain, the quintet wrestles with the rigors of adulthood. Songs performed are "Arkansas," "Race to the Bottom" and "Everything." Recorded on May 19, 2017 at KDHX in St. Louis, Missouri. Engineered by Jon Valley.
New York-based foursome Charly Bliss channels a fuzzy and effervescent strand of 90s pop-punk while making its own stamp on the genre. The band plays three songs from its debut full-length "Guppy" and singer/guitarist Eva Hendricks talks about the band's experiences on the road and in the studio. Songs performed are "DQ," "Percolator" and "Ruby." Recorded on April 30, 2017 in St. Louis, Missouri. Engineered by Andy Coco.
