200 shows, three trips across the United States and appearances at Electric Forest Festival, Bear Creek Music and Art Festival, and Wakarusa Music Festival. It’s been a busy 24 months for Earphunk who have seen their efforts propel them from small club stages to packed clubs and theaters across the country. The New Orleans born-and-bred quintet shows no sign of letting off the gas, and now, with the band’s third studio album release of Sweet Nasty, the band has captured the energy that has won over a rapidly growing fanbase of loyal listeners.

Recorded at the storied Studio in the Country in rural Louisiana while on break between tour stints, Sweet Nasty is Earphunk’s boldest release to date. “When you hear the album it sounds like a live show, and that’s how it should feel,” explains lead guitarist Paul Provosty, who also handled mixing duties for the record. “We wanted it to sound big – a true representation of our live show.” The Studio’s hallowed halls provided the proper backdrop for the band’s uniquely organic balance of heavy-pocket funk and reckless prog-driven guitar explosions, or “prog-funk”, as the band refers to it.

The band’s early rehearsals saw Provosty, Mark Hempe (vocals/guitar), Michael Matthews (drums), Michael Comeaux (Bass), and Christian Galle (keyboards/organ) as college students around New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LA in 2009 — there were no expectations of national tours and sold out dates. But as things quickly progressed, the option to pursue a full-time career as musicians drove the band to hit the road. “After the first few tours, we were fully vested in this together,” Hempe muses, “and when people are coming to the shows, and appreciating what we’re doing, it gives us the drive to want to step up our game, to be as tight as we can be.”
Madaila
Madaila
Psych pop juggernaut Madaila is upbeat, synth­-heavy, and catchy. Vocal skill and range are immediately apparent. But in the tradition of Prince and more recently Miike Snow, an ornateness and heaviness expose Madaila's complexity and depth. Tight arrangements and multi-­instrumental performances showcase musical minds at work.

When Madaila is on stage, spontaneous expression and contagious melody coexist. The freakier elements of the band come to the surface as the five-­piece explores the deeper possibilities lying within their concise-recorded material. The band's improvisational power gives each song the capacity to have its form pushed to the edges of comfort, or uplifting peaks.

Madaila has shared the stage with artists such as BØRNS, The Flaming Lips, Shakey Graves, Mac DeMarco, Grace Potter, Big Gigantic, Delicate Steve, Deer Tick, Matisyahu, Twiddle and Rubblebucket; and played at festivals such as Mountain Jam, Frendly Gathering, Grand Point North, Waking Windows, Otis Mountain & Burlington Discover Jazz. Madaila's affiliation with the Future Fields has provided further opportunities for growth and exposure. The artist­-run label and management group based in Burlington includes Kelly Ravin, Iron Eyes Cody, & The Precepts. Madaila's sophomore album, "Traces," is slated for release in Fall of 2016
