Born of navel-gazing self-indulgence and vague ambition, Erie Choir began at the dawn of the new millennium as the solo acoustic folk singing sort-of-thing of Sorry About Dresden’s Eric Roehrig. Realizing the loneliness and terror of such endeavors and the inability to drown out yammering bar goers, Roehrig quickly recruited members of the White Octave and Cold Sides, and the group morphed into a more rockin’ affair though one still more likely to be classified under the sub-genres of “classic”, “indie”, or “folk” rather than “punk” or, god forbid, “emo”. After a pair of self-released EP’s and a few lineup changes, Sit-n-Spin Records released “Slighter Awake” in 2006, which Pop Matters called “crisp, clean, indie rock with a folk-pop flavor”, clarifying however, that the songs “may not be epic masterpieces” (emphasis added).

By the end of the aughts, Erie Choir had settled into the consistent lineup of Roehrig, Bob Wall, James Hepler, and Jack Watson. After seven years, Erie Choir finally got its shit together to finish the follow up to “Slighter Awake” that they began recording in 2010.
Woodvamp
Woodvamp
Woodvamp are an indie rock/post rock band from Durham and Raleigh, North Carolina, but it's origins lay on another continent. Woodvamp grew out of a conversation in Catania, Sicily in June of 2016. Agostino Tilotta (Uzeda, Bellini) asked Chris Rossi (Amor De Cosmos, Lake and Hennepin, The Wusses), "Do you know my friend Giuseppe? He's from Catania. He lives in Raleigh. He's a bass player." Chris and Matt Gocke (81 Mulberry, Spatula, Fontana) had played, briefly, in a band together (Sea Worm) and had been talking about trying to get something new off the ground. When Chris got back from Sicily, he looked up Giuseppe Zappalà (100%, Jerica's, Noema) and fairly soon after the trio were making music together. With each member having roots in music going back to the 90s punk and indie rock scenes, Woodvamp make music that is plaintive, yet driving--largely instrumental, with vocals about bees with mind control, the villains that control them, and the struggle for freedom and humanity in a confusing world.
