Bad Bad Hats is the songwriting duo of Chris Hoge and Kerry Alexander. Together, they write songs that are short & sweet, upbeat & smart. With the help of their bassist, Noah Boswell, they were discovered at Macalester College’s Annual Battle of the Bands. They did not win the battle, and are currently seeking revenge.

llinois musician Jared Bartman is a songwriter in every sense of the word.  His music creates connections — the listener with music, memories with consequence, and rhythm with detailed composition.  His songs draw on the traditions of American folk and blues, afro-Cuban culture, and the often intricate tendencies of orchestral shorthand, which is to say that his music sounds timeless and untraceable and seems to have been waiting for just the right time to show itself.  Known for his often disparately staged live shows — he may swing from an acoustic solo performance one night to a stage full of strings, bass, and percussive accompaniment the next — Bartman never lingers too long on any one set of aesthetics before jumping to whatever next catches his attention.  On his upcoming record,Misery Makes Strange Bedfellows(out November 19th), the versatile singer, who has shared the stage with artists like John Vanderslice and Richard Buckner, is set to cast an ever wider net documenting his love of bucolic lyricism and a roughspun sense of storytelling.

Merging ’90s R&B and neo-soul with her indie-rock roots,Caroline Smith‘s new album,Half About Being a Woman, is a record about self-acceptance and growing into yourself; it’s about going back to the roots of ‘feel-good’ music. “I wanted to find my way back to the reason why I started playing music in the first place,” says Smith. “Over the last year I began to embrace that being a strong, confident, opinionated woman is something to be proud of, not subdued. I have to embrace where my roots are and stay true to who I am: an unabashed fan of 90′s R&B, pop, and neo-soul.”
