White Mystery rocks a Top Ten Album, ELLE Magazine Brazil feature, Daytrotter session, POWERGLOVE music video, and Sound Opinions episode distributed by American Public Media.
Miss Alex White and Francis White are two siblings born and raised in the city of Chicago that play original, garage punk shows around the world.
Chicago Tribune music editor and Sound Opinions host Greg Kot writes,
"The real attraction is White Mystery, the new duo forged by Miss Alex White, best known as the guitar-wielding blowtorch in her long-running gig with [Miss Alex White and] the Red Orchestra. With drummer Francis White, she reduces her love of soul-fired garage rock to its butt-kicking essence."
Dead Stars was formed in 2009 by Jeff Moore (guitar, vocals), his cousin Jaye Moore (drums) and John Watterberg (bass). This Brooklyn, NY three piece came together to create their own brand of indie pop, with fuzzed out guitars, hook laden riffs and melodic sensibilities. During the first few years the band self released three EP’s before gaining the attention of local label Uninhabitable Mansions, who released 2013's five song 'High Gain’ EP. Building on the positive response of the record, Dead Stars went back into the studio to record their first full length ‘Slumber’. After hearing the album, the band was signed by Old Flame Records who will be releasing the record in June of 2014.
Samantha (Release Party!)
Samantha is Brooklyn based trash-pop trio with a penchant for loud guitars and harmony. The band relocated from Chicago about a year ago and has since shared the stage with bands like Dead Stars, White Mystery and Unlocking the Truth. They’ve played all over NYC including Cameo, Santos Party House and the Trash Bar and have hit SXSW twice, with plans to return this year. Their new album “Hourglass Noise” is set to be released this spring. “We were going for a Kim Deal, Kurt Cobain and R2D2 on a road trip kind of thing. Not sure we ended up there, but the record is awesome.”
