The Matters | Fred’s Texas Cafe | Nov. 16

The Matters play Fred’s on Saturday, November 16th | 8pm – 11pm

Check out the band →https://themattersmusic.com/home

Before relocating to ATX, The Matters grew up sharing the stage in PCB. The project formerly known as Jam Therapy, features a lineup of Florida natives: Garrett Brown (vocals, guitar), Alejandro Rios (guitar, vocals), Chase Morgan (bass) and Mike Kreiger (drums). Together they performed across the southeast and released a series of EP’s until their music led them to Austin, TX.

The bands electric and unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll — but with a whole lotta feeling– has materialized into the band’s first EP Survive, set for independent release in 2018. The album was recorded in Austin, TX at the Bubble with premier rock producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith (Jet, The Darkness, Leopold and His Fiction, Purple) and expands upon the group’s development with diverse songs that reinvent the far-reaching scope of rock music.

With the mystic of Zeppelin, paired with the energy of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Matters challenge their audiences to a fight to the death every night while conducting a stage show that is both chaotic and seductive.

Fruition | Deep Ellum Art Co. atDeep Ellum Art Company Dallas, Texas

Jay Cobb Anderson (vocals, lead guitar, harmonica) / Kellen Asebroek (vocals, rhythm guitar, piano) / Mimi Naja (vocals, mandolin, electric & acoustic guitar) / Jeff Leonard (bass) / Tyler Thompson (drums, banjo)

On their fifth full-length, Watching It All Fall Apart, Fruition transform pain and heartache into something truly glorious. With their songwriting sharper and more nuanced than ever before—and their sonic palette more daringly expansive—the Portland, Oregon-based band’s full-hearted intensity ultimately gives the album a transcendent power.

“The songs are mostly breakup songs,” says Asebroek. “There was love and now it’s gone—we fucked it up, or some outside circumstance brought it to an end. It’s about dealing with all that but still having hope in your heart, even if you’re feeling a little lost and jaded.”

In a departure from their usual DIY approach, Fruition teamed up with producer/mixer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, First Aid Kit, case/lang/veirs) to adorn their folk-rooted sound with delicately crafted elements of psychedelia and soul. Showcasing the sublime harmonies the band first discovered during an impromptu busking session in 2008, Watching It All Fall Apart also finds Fruition more fully embracing their rock-and-roll sensibilities and bringing a gritty vitality to each track. “We’ve been a band almost ten years now, and we’re at the point of being comfortable in our skin and unafraid to be whatever we want as time goes on,” Anderson notes.

Recorded in ten days at Flora Recording & Playback in Portland, Watching It All Fall Apart came to life with the same kinetic urgency found in Fruition’s live sound. “It’s kind of an impossible task, this idea of transmuting the live energy into something you can play on your stereo, but I feel like this record comes close to that,” says Asebroek. At the same time, the band pursued a purposeful inventiveness that resulted in their most intricately textured work to date. “Tucker helped us push ourselves to create something that glistens in subtle little ways that you might not even pick up on at first,” says Asebroek. “We got to play around with all this analog gear and these weird old keyboards we wouldn’t ordinarily use, like a bunch of kids in a toy store where everything is free.”

On lead single “I’ll Never Sing Your Name,” that unrestrained creativity manifests in a fuzzed-out, gracefully chaotic track complete with sing-along-ready chorus. Built on brilliantly piercing lyrics (“And all those kisses that you were blowing/Somehow they all got blown right out”), the song echoes the album’s emotional arc by painfully charting the journey from heartache to acceptance. “It’s about going through a breakup, moping around, and then finally getting to the point where it’s like, ‘Okay—I’m done with feeling this way now,’” says Anderson.

Throughout Watching It All Fall Apart, the band’s let-the-bad-times-roll mentality reveals itself in ever-shifting tones and moods. On the stark and sleepy “Northern Town,” Naja’s smoldering vocals channel the ache of longing, the track’s twangy guitar lines blending beautifully with its swirling string arrangement. One of the few album cuts to have already appeared in Fruition’s setlist, “There She Was” sheds the heavy funk influence of its live version and gets reimagined as a shimmering, soulful number documenting Asebroek’s real-life run-in with an ex at a local bar. Meanwhile, “Turn to Dust” emerges as a weary but giddy piece of psych-pop chronicling the end of a failed romance. The song’s opening lyric also lends the album its title, which partly serves as “a commentary on the general state of the world today,” according to Asebroek. “Even if you’re mostly an optimistic person, it’s hard not to feel down when you look at all the insanity happening right now,” he says.

While those unflinchingly intimate breakup songs form the core of Watching It All Fall Apart, Fruition infuse an element of social commentary into songs like “FOMO” as well. Written on the Fourth of July, with its references to wasted white girls and cocaine cowboys, the mournful yet strangely reassuring track unfolds as what Anderson calls “an anti-party party song.” “It’s about one of those situations where you said you’d go to party but you really don’t want to go, because you know it’s going to be the same old bullshit,” he says. “The song is a call to defuse that guilt in your brain.” And on the sweetly uplifting “Let’s Take It Too Far,” the band offers one of the album’s most purely romantic moments by paying loving tribute to music as solace and salvation (“But don’t you worry ’bout dyin’/’Cause there’s no better way to go/We’ll sing until we’re out of honey/Then pour the gravel down our throats”).

From song to song, Fruition display the dynamic musicality they’ve shown since making their debut with 2008’s Hawthorne Hoedown LP. Through the years, the band has evolved from a rootsy, string-centric outfit to a full-fledged rock act, eventually taking the stage at such major festivals as Bonnaroo and Telluride Bluegrass (a set that inspired Rolling Stone to praise their “raucous originals filled with heartfelt lyrics and stadium-worthy energy”). Following the release of 2016’s Labor of Love, Fruition again made the rounds at festivals across the U.S., prompting Rolling Stone to feature the band on its “8 Best Things We Saw” at DelFest 2016.

In choosing a closing track for Watching It All Fall Apart, Fruition landed on “Eraser”—a slow-building, gently determined epic delivering a quiet message of hope in its final line: “Let it help you heal.” “Because there’s so much heartbreak on this album, we wanted to end on Kellen singing that last line very sweetly,” explains Anderson. “The whole point of having all these sad songs is helping people to let those emotions out—and then hopefully when they get to the end, they feel a little better about everything they’ve gone through along the way.”

Angélica Rahe, Cure for Paranoia, & Camera Cult | Nov. 24th atDeep Ellum Art Company Dallas, Texas

Deep Ellum Art Company Presents:
[ live music | art gallery | bar | art yard ]
http://DeepEllumArt.Co/

An Evening with Angélica Rahe, Cure For Paranoia, & Camera Cult on Sunday, November 24th.

Angélica Rahe
[latin wave | soul]
Feels Like: Kali Uchis, Sade, SZA

ANGÉLICA RAHE (pronounced “ray”) has a musical journey that spans the globe. In 2018, she toured across the U.S., Europe and Latin America with Columbian-American R&B sensation, Kali Uchis, as her musical director, guitarist and backup vocalist (including a North America run opening for Lana Del Rey). In 2019, Angélica has dedicated herself to writing and self-producing her debut album, REINA, which speaks to her personal journey of reflection, rebirth and self-love. The forthcoming album, recorded across four studios in Brooklyn, features Angélica on vocals and guitar with Cleon Edwards (Erykah Badu, Jill Scott) on drums and Nick Clark (Kanye West, H.E.R.) on bass, whom she will tour with.

Born of a Spanish musician father and theater actress mother, Angélica split her childhood between Spain, Japan and landed in the U.S. as a young teenager, gaining the musical influences of Sade, Jorge Drexler, John Mayer and Erykah Badu along the way. Love, Translated, her debut Spanish-language EP, includes songs self-written and recorded between Los Angeles, Miami, and Austin where she recorded with Grammy Award winner Adrian Quesada (Black Pumas, Grupo Fantasma). While her early singles “Pa’lante”, “Extranjera” and Love, Translated EP, show an impressive range of vocal talent and songwriting abilities, it’s the intimacy and sensuality in REINA (set for release in early 2020) that will have fans likening her to artists ranging from Rosalía to Solange.

Cure For Paranoia
[trip-hop | soul | r&b]
Feels Like: Anderson .Paak, Daniel Caesar, Masego

The soul-infused hip-hop outfit has become the new face of the storied Dallas neighborhood. Now the band is taking Deep Ellum worldwide.

The musicians that make up Dallas hip-hop group Cure for Paranoia have their own bold energy andpersonal styles which would best be described as aggressively funky, a style that carries through to their music. Between Tomahawk Jonez’s and JayAnalog’s production, Stanley Francisko’s airy vocals, and Cameron McCloud’s brisk lyrical delivery, the band has designed its own brand of “trippy soul-infused hip-hop.”

The group formed when the four guys took a “doomsday road trip.” Following the advice of some conspiracy theorist friends, they packed up and headed to an ideal place to wait out the apocalypse.When an earth-shattering meteor didn’t hit, inspiration did. Having recently been diagnosed with bipolar paranoid schizophrenia, McCloud found clarity in making music with Analog, Jonez, and Francisko. By the time they returned home, the band was born.

Cure for Paranoia quickly made a name for themselves and were awarded Dallas Observer’s Best New Act in 2016 & Best Group Act in 2017. They formed a relationship with Erykah Badu after McCloud was recorded rapping to her backstage of the Bomb Factory, which allowed them to perform at 2 of her most recent, sold out Birthday celebrations. In less than 2 years, the group has been put on festival bills with artists like Run The Jewels, Flying Lotus, Phantogram and Purity Ring. Their diverse music has allowed them to share bills with a wide range of artists such as Ludacris, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelik and tour with Bone Thugs -n- Harmony

Camera Cult
[indie | synth | electronic]
Feels Like: Chromeo, Neon Indian, New Order
“Indie synth-pop that’ll make even the too-cool-for-school crowd shake it.”
When glancing at these young men’s fresh faces, you might not anticipate how smooth they are. However, the trio has managed to tether together an interesting sound that oozes the dance vibes of Chromeo, the self-assuring funk of James Brown and the poppy synth compositions from all of your favorite John Hughes soundtracks.
