VIKING MOSES

Many balls-to-the-wall musicians adopt a bohemian persona to fit their music, but Viking Moses is the real deal. Living a nomadic life for nearly a decade now, Brendon Massei has released banjo and acoustic guitar albums under several names. Perpetually on tour (since 1996), he has played with Will Oldham, Cat Power, Songs: Ohia, Akron/Family and Devendra Banhart, to name a few, yet Masseis body of work has received little commercial or critical attention.

His last full-length under the Viking Moses moniker, the story-song cycle Crosses (released in 2006 on Poptones), is by far his most accomplished work, and ranks among the best of the newest crop of American anti / electro / folk recordings. Fresh from playing at Death Disco in Budapest with Alan McGee and Stuart Braithwaite, this tour will see Brendon showcase his new EP Swollen & Small The Songs Of Neutral Milk Hotel released April 2nd on Fire Records. Yeah, you heard, NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL!! Next stop: Fence Records Homegame.

Wonderfully out there stuff from a truly special, truly one-off solo artist. (Drowned In Sound)

KHAR LEONG

Khar Leong is the solo project of Sandy Galloway, a singer and guitarist who has played with The Microphones, The Needles and Electric Tibet. Influenced by Wilco, Arthur Russell, Angelo Badelamenti and Roy Orbison. (That's all Sandy gave me - he's very modest. We think he's amazing.)

MORGANS ORANGE

Part of the Viking Moses touring band - Morgans Orange climbs from the throat of Ronn Benway, concentrating on the balance between monkeys & bees, fruits & vegetables and what is and can be. Turtles, transients and time all echo through the music's bitter candy shell. Morgans Orange is now touring the world, bringing songs from his 5 underground albums and the forthcoming release on Natrix Natrix Records.

GEORGE THOMAS

Another cog in the Viking Moses machine. We have no idea what he's going to do. I did ask though.
