The Hucksters’ very own Chase Ford is a prolific song writer, pumping out songs like he’s a spigot. While away serving a mission for his church, he has found time to write and record several songs via cassette-tape recorder. The results are remarkable.
Enjoy the new tracks below!
The Hucksters released their freshman album “To Be As Gods” today after months of work recording, mixing and mastering. We think you’d be proud of the product!
Enjoy streaming it right here!
In April of 2012, Seminole Roots began recording their album titled “Optimist Hearts” at War Artist Records. Nearly a year of life has been transfered through the microphones, into the computer and into these songs. We are proud to announce the release of Optimist Hearts. An album that is so beautiful and mind-blowing; not in an experimental or avant garde way, but in songwriting and arrangement.
This long awaited album is available for download on Seminole Roots’ bandcamp page. You can also listen to the songs right here:
Known and loved by many in the Rexburg area, the boisterous and noisy rock trio the Hucksters are recording an album at War Artist Records. Tonight, at Sammy’s Cafe, they play with Provo band Vanladylove at 8pm. Come join the fun and be ready to hear their new single tonight on their Facebook page
This dude is a diamond in a rough—a rough that is more famous for having tube vegetables than downtempo, garage folk musicians. Idaho native Aaron Turley creates music that sounds more at home in a basement venue on the East Coast. In TV Kid, Turley starts up with the “Strummy Sun,” which, due to the nonchalant, woozy vocalizing and modest guitar formulas, plays like a late Strokes B-side. The latter tracks take on a pacifying shift, prominently in “Contradiction,” which introduces more electronic production and a muzzling distortion on his vocals, giving his lyrics the intonation of a lulling voicemail message. The folk element becomes more obvious in the hazy and weary ballad “Like Summer.” If fellow natives Build to Spill were powerful enough to cultivate a sizable music scene in Idaho, then I could safely assume Aaron Turley has the talent to take it a step further. –Gregory Gerulat

In Rexburg, Idaho, musician Austin Dixon is well known; running a music festival in-town does that I guess. But Austin is more than just a music promoter, he’s a musician at heart. His most recent EP “Luna” shows his passion for music and his accomplished musicianship; playing all instruments on the album, including wowing drum lines that mix seamlessly into the texture of the mix.
