Alcoholic Faith Mission

The Danish duo-turned-quintet, Alcoholic Faith Mission, are back in the US and headed towards Austin and the SxSW Festival. After three critically acclaimed full-length albums and highly successful tours throughout Europe, these five favored Danes are prepping the release of their Running With Insanity EP, after which we'll no doubt be seeing and hearing a lot more of this handsome collective stateside.

You Won't
Massachusetts natives Josh Arnoudse and Raky Sastri have been making things together since 1999, when they engaged in horrendously reckless swordplay during a high school production of "My Favorite Year." From 2003 to 2008 they conspired to produce a series of strange and little-seen movies while Josh attended college in Western Massachusetts and Raky gigged around NYC with a number of different bands. During this period of geographical separation they began trading home recordings of their original songs via email and formulating vague and grandiose plans to start a band together some day.

You Won't was born in late 2010, when the two friends willfully marooned themselves in the woods of Eastern Massachusetts (for the second and third time, respectively) to record a number of Josh's songs. They emerged like baby bears in the spring of 2011 and spent the next several months touring the east coast and playing regularly in Boston and NYC as music blogs including Spinner, I Guess I'm Floating, and Pretty Much Amazing began to take note of their distinctively melodic musical stylings. Their full-length debut, Skeptic Goodbye, was released on Old Flame Records on February 14, 2012.

The Best Westerns
