The Almost Faithful - I Disappear #Flyah Submission


The Almost Faithful is a Seattle-based alt-rock trio featuring guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist John Feodorov, bass guitarist Hal Deranek, and drummer James Lord.
John Feodorov formed The Almost Faithful in 2015. A musician and songwriter long before establishing himself as a multi-media artist, Feodorov decided to search for musicians looking to “create something different”. Initially, the goal was to put together a band to play moody ambient-like music for art galleries, museum openings and performing arts festivals. Hoping to concentrate on writing and guitar playing, the initial version of TAF utilized female vocals and a second guitarist. However, after various incarnations, in mid-2017 the band settled upon their current line-up with John taking over lead vocal duties. As a trio, the band’s philosophically-tinged songs took on a much harder rock edge, allowing the remaining band members to express their creative selves without compromise.
Informed by Art Rock, Post-Punk, Progressive and Psychedelic Rock, The Almost Faithful weaves together thought-provoking and mordant lyrics with staccato guitar riffs, intense bass lines, and dynamic drumming to create a sound that is as raw and gritty as it is intentional and well-crafted.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as The Kinks, PJ Harvey, Gang of Four, and King Crimson, The Almost Faithful’s songs are simultaneously introspective and intense, while their lyrics maneuver between pensive reflection and biting social critique.
In 2016 the NW Music Scene blog wrote that The Almost Faithful’s debut EP “…takes you on a journey that is at times progressive, often alluring, into a dreamscape of sounds that is touched by the grit of grunge.” Stephen Graham at KNDD radio described the band’s song, “My Soul Is Saving Me”, as sounding, “straight out of a Quentin Tarantino film.”
“Human | Nature” is the title of their new 10-song album, and is scheduled for release on Oct. 2nd, 2018.The songs address themes such as consumerism, alienation, spiritual conflict and doubt in the age of alternative facts.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
