The Suitcase Junket
The Suitcase Junket
From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks and rock clubs, The Suitcase Junket conjures an entirely new sound in this essential rock collection, Pile Driver.

The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, one-man band. His is the road-worn voice rising over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar, with wild double pitches of throat singing. From The Suitcase Junket's penchant for thrift and ingenuity comes this full-length album -- his debut at Signature Sounds -- of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance-hall festivity, played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage.
Upstate Rubdown
Upstate Rubdown
Drawing from every corner and decade of America's musical landscape, Upstate Rubdown has been described as a "hurricane of sound". The unique instrumentation includes mandolin, cajon, upright bass, and alto/baritone saxophone, all fronted by a powerhouse of 3-part female vocal harmony. The band can land perfectly in any setting, from intimate house concerts to prominent festival stages. The material is innovative and forward thinking, but never at the expense of a great hook or a solid groove. Upstate Rubdown plays music to move your body and soul.
