Apparently they recently toured with Paper Route. Ambient in a way that’s similar to Sigur Ros, but not as abstract. Check it. Also very much digging the experimental film approach to the music video. Fun stuff.
The Make, a relatively new project featuring former Number One Gun members Jeff Schneeweis and Trevor Sellers (and Sarah Ann from See You Soon), have released a new catchy single: “Solar Light.” With one EP and a smattering of singles released here and there since forming in 2011 in Chico, CA, (UPDATE: Oops!

How did I miss this!? Aaron Marsh of Copeland has a new band, The Lulls in Traffic. They released The Rope to Pull Yourself Together last summer. Doesn’t look like they’ve been up to much else lately, after a quick glace at their twitter feed. Not even going to try and be clever with this [...]

Filmed at an art studio in Nashville, TN for an Audio-Files.com recording, this dreamy new track from electronic indie-rockers Paper Route also features an Interlude favorite – lead singer Cacie Dalager from the band Now, Now.
