    The Haden Triplets
    After two decades in music, the Haden Triplets – Petra, Rachel and Tanya – are finally set to release their debut album together. You've certainly heard them already, though; the women, separately and together, have contributed to recordings and performances by the Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer, Beck, Green Day, Todd Rundgren, the Rentals and Silversun Pickups.

    Now recording on Jack White's Third Man label, the trio is continuing their American roots music tradition with The Haden Triplets. While demoing the tracks, famed artist/producer Ry Cooder sprung one surprise on the women: he decided to record the album in Tanya's house due to its unique acoustics. "The house was built in the early 1900s and has this incredibly rich sound, almost like the inside of a church," the Hadens tell Rolling Stone. "We had originally planned to record the songs in a studio, but after rehearsing in the house, Ry Cooder turned to us and said, 'Oh no, we aren't recording in a studio. We're recording right here, with one mic – just how it should be done!'

    All Boy/All Girl
    Conceived by bandleader and composer, Nicholas Rahn, and uninhibited, theatrical lead vocalist, Danielle Lovier, All Boy/All Girl is an avant-pop collective that makes contemporary music laced with nostalgia. Taking classic influences like Arthur Russell, Philip Glass and Brian Wilson and adapting them to a modern, relevant context, the band uses lush textures and infectious pop melodies melded with bits of avant-garde and musical theatre. With instrumentation including viola, cello, ukulele, upright bass, guitar, drums and dual female vocals, All Boy/All Girl's expansive, creative palette is ever-evolving.

    All Boy/All Girl’s debut LP, Tiny Iglesia, was released in late 2013 and led to the band touring through the United States and Europe in support. The music video for the lead single, “Dirt”, conveyed the intimate nature of the track to a tee, which embraces unavoidable mortality as something we all have in common. Delving into subject matter about our most primal emotions and fears, All Boy/All Girl’s lyrical content is gripping and real; coupled with shimmering vocal harmonies and undeniable chemistry between Danielle and soprano vocalist, Jessie Rogowski.

    All Boy/All Girl’s carefully composed musical expeditions will soon take you on a new journey, as the band is entering the studio to work on their follow-up to Tiny Iglesia. The new material plays with our culture's obsession with "winning" and is both thoughtful, and forthright in its execution yet simultaneously spacious and untethered by the restrictions of genre. You’ll just have to wait and hear for yourself – it certainly won't be what you’re expecting.
