HOUDAN THE MYSTIC // “SLEEPING OR WORSE” // 11.18.2012 // @ BUTTERMILK TRAILS

ARTIST INFO: HOUDAN THE MYSTIC

“Swirling eerie sevenths open, taking you somewhere into a vortex… deeper… deeper… then, BAM! You are smacked in the face with a spastic explosion of strings and beats, which quickly shapes itself into a thoughtful head-bobbin’ jam. This is the opening track of Houdan The Mystic’s first release, Archer’s Jamboree. The Richmond band, which contains two of the members of Night Idea, has been making waves around town since their formation. Their tasteful and extremely tight blend of experimental-technical-melodic rock, heartfelt lyrics, and large beards puts them into a category they can truly call their own.” – William Hooper, RVA Mag

BLACK GIRLS // “CLUB BANGIN” // 09.02.2012 // @ HOLLYWOOD CEMETERY

ARTIST INFO: BLACK GIRLS

“A combination of Motown soul and classic pop, Black Girls’ angst-free melodies are emboldened with a swaggering, low-simmering sensuality that recalls Prince, Modest Mouse, Pavement and "Chocolate and Cheese”-era Ween while retaining their own distinctive, libidinous voice. The corporeal looseness of their compositions inveigles the listener through persuasive seduction. It is sexual music without ever being lewd, heavy-handed or grotesquely needy. Confident but never conceited, Black Girls are always in the mood to help you slip into something more comfortable.“ –Chris Bopst, Richmond Times-Dispatch
