  • Nothing for Now[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/12/Nothing-for-Now-Solace.mp3]

    'Solace'

    With the name deriving from an answer to a simple question of "What are you calling yourselves?" comes Nothing For Now. This quintet of talented musicians solidified early in 2011 after years of evolving and growing, desperately trying to find the right pieces for creating a great sound. With over twenty years of performance experience accumulated by the five musicians, Nothing For Now looks to put their fingers on the pulse of what’s next.

  • Hell Rides North

    'Enjoy the Silence'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/11/08-Hell-Rides-North-Enjoy-the-Silence.mp3]

    Kicked out of Hell a long time ago, Hell Rides North now hails from Detroit, MI. The band brings a fusion of old fashioned hard rock with fist swinging metal. Their second album, 'Let the Wicked Burn' is available now.

  • The Skylit Letter

    'Elusive Day'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/11/TSL-Elusive-Day.mp3]

    Female fronted high energy rock n' roll that kicks you in the nuts and then buys you a shot... Born from the remains of an artistically and socially inept society comes The Skylit Letter. Aiming to transcend the world around them during times of hopelessness, TSL strives to open the eyes of individuals failing to realize that beauty surrounds us all. With the recent release of their EP “Constellations,” a full legnth on the way, and intense live performances, TSL continues to embark on a grassroots campaign throughout the Midwest.

  • Dear Dangerous

    'Hey Hey'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/12/02-Hey-Hey.mp3]

    Dear Dangerous formed in Grand Rapids in 2005. Their sound is like post-grunge in a blender. Combining gritty guitar tones, crunchy synths, and melody driven alt-rock, Dear Dangerous takes pride in their sound, and a true D.I.Y. ethic, in a time when GREAT MUSIC means everything.
