Strange Names

It’s only been a few months since Strange Names landed in New York City, but the time for this daring pop trio has most definitely come. On May 18, 2015, this triumvirate of twenty-somethings—Fletcher Aleckson, Francis Ximenez and Liam Benzvi—released Use Your Time Wisely, a firecracker debut LP jammed with energetic, angular, romantic songs that sound at once ageless and completely contemporary.

Carroll

Minneapolis’ Carroll (two R’s, two L’s) was born in late 2011 when frontman Brian Hurlow started composing melancholic pop songs that caught the ear of college classmate and drummer Charlie Rudoy. The lifelong musicians clicked and moved in together to a house on Carroll Avenue, coining the psychedelic, shoegazey-pop band’s name. After guitarist Max Kulicke and bassist Charles McClung came on board for the live show, Carroll started turning heads. 18+
