Gnomedad is a funky, jazzmafied beat-odyssey that combines elements of party, leisure, and beauty with intricate grooves, synthtastic explosions, and bluesy motifs. The dynamic quartet’s scope of genres includes experimental, classical, drum&bass, middle-eastern, metal, funk fusion, and untold fortune. Pentatonic meets octatonic. Chord progressions meet freedom. Vintage meets modern. Fresh from Burlington, Gnomedad takes the stage.
New York City-based rock band Upright Man is Aidan Dolan (guitar/vocals), Nick Katz (bass/vocals) and Max Yassky (drums/percussion/background vocals). The group met while studying classical music composition at New York University where they played together on various projects ranging from classical ensembles to rock bands. Their strong writing chemistry spurred the formation of Upright Man. Combining elements of alternative, psychedelic, roots rock and classic rock with complex harmonies and time signatures, the band seamlessly intertwines influences like Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Crowded House, Little Feat, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and XTC into a unique sound all their own. Upright Man’s dynamic self-titled debut is out nowI
