Material Girls - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
Material Girls
Not much information exists about recently-formed Atlanta band Material Girls, and the group likes it that way. The six-piece outfit featuring members of Slang, Concord America and Chief Scout debuted in late 2016 with just 33 copies of a lathe cut 7-inch record, sharing only one song online via a conspicuously sparse Soundcloud channel. The first single, “Drained,” tantalized with spooky sleigh bells, jangly piano, braying horns, and deep, moody vocals reminiscent of Ariel Pink and Leonard Cohen. It was a promising track, and for listeners left wanting more, there was almost nothing to be found.

Today Material Girls tease the internet a bit more, releasing the B-side of the record with CL’s premiere of “Tightrope.”

Though the dark vocals and signature trumpets and saxophones remain, the song reveals a jauntier and more sardonic tone. The energetic bass and spoken-word lyrics (“I ask for advice / I fuck it up twice”) evoke influences ranging from the Talking Heads to Ought. The band members spoke with CL via email about the B-side, social media ennui, the allure of the unknown, and what’s in store for Material Girls’ future.

Rose Hotel - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Rose Hotel
Rose Hotel began simply. It was the phrase on the cover of a notebook — an arbitrary title — that gave a home to the ideas songwriter Jordan Reynolds had been working on in her spare time. After the band Reynolds had spent the last five years touring with dissolved, she found her pastime project becoming her main focus and passion. With the ample personal time such changes can create, Reynolds channeled her experiences into a six-song collection that celebrates independence and pays homage to a lineage of influencers including Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling, and Jessica Pratt. Rose Hotel’s lush and intimate EP, Always Good Reason, dropped in the late summer of 2017.

Now based in Atlanta, GA - Reynolds has joined forces with a crew of local players (Tyler Jundt, John Restivo, Vinny Restivo, Mike Varner), evolving from the solo project of a songwriter cutting her teeth, to the fleshed-out sound of a tight 5-piece indie rock outfit. Rose Hotel is taking new form.

Deriving influence from the seventies folk-tinged soft rock of artists like The Carpenters and Carole King, as well as the dark and dreamy tones of modern groups like Hand Habits and Waxahatchee, Rose Hotel is both hushed and roaring, delicate and powerful, and won’t be pigeonholed into your stereotypical “female-fronted indie rock” category. The band plans to release music in 2018.
