The Gents: Farm Sessions Video Debut

Conceptualized and brought to life at The Ball Farm (Red White & Blue Ball, Oxblood Masquerade) just outside of Austin, TX, directors Josh Ball and Conrad Heinz spent two days filming and recording The Gents in the Farm House Studio and running around the 62-acre farm. These scenes tell a story that compliments The Gents' strong musical cohesion, diverse song-writing capabilities and near flawless in-studio performance during the filming of the first ever "Farm Sessions" Live at The Ball Farm. Here's what The Gents look like when they're not on a farm:


And have you seen Holiday Mountain?! Holy bejeebus they're fun. Do you like monstrous dub grooves, psychedelic space journeying, pounding surf-reggae, electro western disco, 1960s island grooves, tight jungle breaks, flourishes of electronics, and hip hop backbeats? If you haven't seen Holiday Mountain you might not yet know that you do in fact love all of those things. Raw Paw said "they've come from a distant plane to make us dance like we're insane." Performer Magazine said "Unconventional in all the right ways...Holiday Mountain are ready for the big time."

Big Wonder is a new band from Austin, Texas consisting of members Chase Hill (vocals, guitar) Grant Shirley (lead guitar) Chris Applegate (Bass, Vocals) Matt Bradshaw (keyboard, vocals, trumpet) and Drew Brunetti (Drums). Big Wonder is an extension of Hill's music from his previous project, My Milky Way Arms. This new project maintains the whimsical pop sensibility of MMWA while introducing a new breed of sound through the band's instrumentation, being more electromechanical analog and less digital. Hypnotic harmonies, catchy melodies and cleverly arranged rhythmic structures are what you will find at a Big Wonder show. That, and a group of friends having a blast playing music they love, together.
