The Enstrangers is a loud and fast Midwestern duo playing music inspired by punk, surf, country, blues, and rock&roll.
The Midwest doesn’t necessarily seem like an obvious spot for an up-and-coming ska band. In fact, Indianapolis is worlds away from the crazy Kingston nightclubs and layered London streets that help craft the genre’s sound. Regardless of what the globes and maps say, The Circle City Deacons have made quite an impression from their Hoosier home base. Musically, Gorsline lays the groundwork for the band’s sound with his gravely vocals laid over his smooth organ playing. Coupled with an adroit rhythm section, the melodious horns form a fantastic sound that melds past, present and future. The island sounds of Peter Tosh and Toots and the Maytals are apparent in the Deacons’ tunes as are the revivalist sounds of The Slackers and The Toasters. While the Deacons have no reservations about acknowledging their influences, there is no doubt that they are pushing forward into a sound all their own.
Dissonance & Dissent is a political skacore / punk / ska band from West Lafayette, IN. Finding themselves in ever shrinkingscene/genre, the group tries to keep the spirit of punk, skacore, and ska alive. With politically charged lyrics, the angst, speed and aggression of punk, the catchiness of ska, and a high level of musical complexity rare in both punk and ska. less
