HITS
HITS
Dictionary definitions prove useful -- prophetic, even -- when listening to HITS, the New York-based synth rockers whose songs are a collection of incisive scenes of the 21st century condition all set to infectious pop arrangements. Few bands ever land on a name that so aptly describes both their sound, and the effect it has on its audience. In its many iterations, the word ‘hit’ denotes the following: To collide with; to affect; to perform successfully; to win. Synth lines shimmer under guitars burnished by sixty years of musical history, laced with lead singer Louis Epstein’s croon on subjects broad (heartbreak) and specific (television series). With guitarist Ben Vescovi, keyboardist Erik Tonnessen (live member of Holy Ghost!), and drummer Chris Stein (former member of the The Drums) they have positioned themselves to be at the top of bands to watch this year. Fortunately for listeners, it happens the band is just as good at making music as they are at naming it. Listeners are first struck, then dazzled, then ultimately won over.
They’ve shared the stage with artists such as Tom Tom Club, Capital Cities, MNDR, Cloud Nothings, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
Grayshot
American alternative-rock trio Grayshot consists of Aaron Ankrum, Christian Ankrum and Nathan Cousins. The band mates spent the better part of 2011 and early 2012 producing, recording and mixing their new record in their Northeast Minneapolis studio.

Early touring as a young band followed by a few years spent as supporting musicians for other regional and national artists has resulted in a band that is able to deliver a fantastic live show. They took this live experience into the studio along with an unwavering dedication to making a record full of songs they believe in. The result is their first full length album titled Stay/Go. The record will be available mid-May.
