Two Sheds
Two Sheds
Caitlin is a loyal Californian, and Californians are always willing to honor a dare. In 2005, her husband Johnny from the beloved band Far dared her to write songs to match the beauty of her voice. The songs she wrote were good enough to be recorded by her friend Robert Cheek at the Hangar studio in Sacramento, with Johnny and Rusty Miller (Jackpot, Jason Lytle, Kelly Stoltz) filling out what would become the band Two Sheds. That album, Strange Ammunition, was self released 2006. They followed with an EP, released by Filter Records in 2007, and spent the next few years touring. In 2010, Caitlin took a hiatus from Two Sheds to join Release the Sunbird, the solo project of Rogue Wave frontman Zach Rogue, and had the opportunity to share stages with Peter, Bjorn & John, Death Cab for Cutie, and the Flaming Lips. Two Sheds resumed when Caitlin and Johnny moved to Los Angeles in 2012. Caitlin was duty-bound to respond to another dare, this time a challenge from a friend to write twenty songs in one day. Caitlin took that dare three different days, in fact, and ended up with enough solid songs to record a new album with Johnny and drummer Josh Barnhart (Release the Sunbird, Port O'Brien, Sparrows Gate). The resulting album, Assembling, was engineered by Eli Thomson (Delta Spirit, Richard Swift, Everest) at New Monkey Studio in Van Nuys, CA (Elliott Smith's former studio). Tracking was performed mostly live over a 5-day session to capture the songs with the same immediacy with which they were written. Two Sheds' music takes the tender and direct pop mindset of someone like Liz Phair straight to the top floor. Caitlin's voice may remind listeners of Kristen Hersh or Mazzy Star, sounding like she's weeping in the sad songs and smiling in the happy songs. The band takes the California rock-soul of comrades like Mother Hips or 90s indie wizards Pavement, driving to the essence of a song in the shortest path possible. They are pushing themselves to dig down to the still-genuine heart of rock and roll, where true love still resides, away from the false promises of the searchlights. They will dare you to not be enamored.
God of Love
God of Love
Fronted by Chase and Cole Burnett, two brothers from Texas currently residing in Northeast Los Angeles, God of Love is heartfelt music of the humanist variety.
