Marah in the Mainsail
Marah in the Mainsail
Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Marah in the Mainsail's sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry's gravel voice alongside Sabol's crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrusted foreword by aggressive percussion, growling base, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between.

Since debuting their full length album "Thaumatrope" in 2015, the band has gained considerable notoriety in the Midwest, and continues to grow their exceptionally loyal fanbase across the country. They later signed with Minneapolis local Last Triumph Records, and released Thaumatrope on 12" vinyl. Poised to launch into the rest of the US and beyond, Marah in the Mainsail cotinues to stand out from the pack, and bring their unique blend of musical influences to the alternative music scene

Uncountable Kings have been playing the local Kansas City scene since the Summer of 2010 and have had the pleasure of playing such venues as Czar Bar, Granada, Aftershock, Uptown Theater, The Beaumont Club, The Roxy and the River Market to name a few.

As artists we also believe it is important to put our talents to good use and help others when we can, we have hosted and performed in benefit concerts for Joplin Aid and for Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief. We also recently participated in a benefit show at the Czar Bar for Camp Quality, an organization to help children with cancer.

Music is our passion and we feel fortunate to have the opportunity to do what we love; don't forget to support local music and local venues, there's a lot of talent right in your backyard!
Cast from London and several cities up and down the east coast into Kansas City/Lawrence area, the 4 members of indie garage rock outfit Westerners may seem more like an accident than a form of perseverance paid off. Beginning with an arbitrary move to a farmhouse in nowhere, Kansas, and an almost decade long friendship, the band's songs and interests were slowly formed over a year of pleasurable purgatory out in the wilderness. Lots of whiskey. Lots of smoke. Lots of good times. Lots of distractions. Emerging from the haze around August of 2013 and enlisting friend and local band director who was then recently discharged from the coast guard to fill out the sound, they swarmed onto the local scene with a constant slew of high energy performances. Recent release of the ep "Westerners" is drawing midwest attention and praise, displaying a group who are paving a street to somewhere, brick by brick.

Recent release, Westerners ep, is a 4 song, get-straight-to-the-point record that introduces the bands unique blend of garage rock and pop. Recorded and produced at Element Recordings (kc) by Joel Nanos, the ep captures the bands intense , live energy that is displayed at every event.
