  • 6 Prong Paw

    ‘Plastic Perfection’[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2013/03/6-Prong-Paw-Plastic-Perfection.mp3]

    Some people go their whole lives thriving on the recordings of a favorite band, with no intentions of seeing, them play live. Others bloom and prosper, from the pure erotic energy that they leave with after seeing a great live show. This surreal experience will be with them for the rest of their lives, becoming irreplaceable. Either way it does not matter. The listener still feels united and exposed to something they feel or have never felt before. This is why 6 Prong Paw exists.

  • Through Hell or High Water

    'Sorry Jack, It's Just Good Business'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2013/03/Through-Hell-or-High-Water-Sorry-Jack-Its-Just-Good-Business.mp3]

    West Branch quartet Through Hell or High Water has been bringing their post hardcore sounds since just last year, but already possess a mature sound and well-polished dynamics bands that have been around for years don't achieve.

  • Fall Prey

    'Alive Inside'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2013/03/Fall-Prey-Alive-Inside.mp3]

    Fall Prey is a female fronted hard rock group hailing from Metro Detroit, MI. The band has established its rightful place as one of the premier bands from their area. With crunchy guitars, groovy bass, thunderous drums, and emotional lyrics, Fall Prey has garnished well deserved attention from media outlets and fans alike.

  • Mercy Beach

    'My Pet Monster'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2013/03/Mercy-Beach-My-Pet-Monster.mp3]

    Mercy Beach: the name conjures visions of pristine white sand and scantily-clad lasses. Soon however, the name will conjure a new association—the all original, Michigan rock band making waves everywhere they're seen and heard. The group had been playing the Mid-West circuit for several years as The Round, before reinventing themselves as Mercy Beach in 2010. The re-imaging brought renewed focus, and their notoriety is growing with each performance. They are quickly making it known that they are a band to keep your ears to the ground for.
