Coyote Bones

I haven’t seen or heard much from this band for a long while, but I still love them.  Coyote Bones started in 2006 and has been road tripping since.  This band had originally formed to see friends and place music for them.  Coyote Bones then turned into a full fledged band that’s been recording and touring ever since. Their sounds are/were always evolving, the live show just kept getting better and better, and then they disappeared.  I feel the need to feature them because I miss seeing them live.  Their shows and music are very heartfelt, and they are the nicest people in the world.  I wonder where they vanished to?
Some bands that have influenced their sound are, of course, The Faint, Tilly and the Wall and other favorite locals such as Connor Oberst.
As far as I know they have no new shows coming up and I couldn’t even tell you the band members names because I can’t find any information about them anywhere.  If you know anything about them, send me a comment.
So checkout their videos and dance!:

Eagle Seagull

So it just snowed in Omaha, and I’m not digging it.  Now I can’t drive my Corvette down the street at 100 mph with the wind in my hair and Eagle Seagull on the radio.  I guess I could never do that, but that’s besides the point.  Eagle Seagull is the kind of band that you would listen to while cruising around on a warm summer night or while you’re hanging out with some good friends and talking about nothing.  They are just so soothing and relaxing, kind of like the Omaha Symphony.  I never really listen to their lyrics because I frankly can’t understand the lead singer, but I love their instrumentals.  I always think bands are amazing when I focus on theirs instrumentals first and then their lyrics. Sometimes I feel that the lead singer isn’t actually saying anything, but that he’s just using his voice as an instrument.  I’ve never actually had the chance to see Eagle Seagull live, but I would love to if I could.
The band consists of:

  • Eli Mardock – vocals, keys, guitar
  • Austin Skiles – guitar, bass
  • J.J. Idt – guitar, bass, keys
  • Mike Overfield – bass, synth
  • Britt Hayes – drums
  • Carrie Butler – violin, keys, vocals

The Show Is The Rainbow

So let’s say your family has one of those uncles.  Yes, the one that’s creepy and no one talks to.  Well, that would be the Show Is The Rainbow.  Darren Keen, who is The Show Is The Rainbow, brings creepy humor to his odd rap music.  I’m not sure if you can call it music, but maybe a dramatic rap/music/video/opera/skit/porno.  I have no idea what to call it, but some people like it.
The first time I saw The Show is The Rainbow I had to walk out of the room and ask myself if life was real because what happened on that stage was mind shattering.  Darren Keen has odd music videos that accompany him with his sets.  These videos are interactions with himself during the show, so he’s basically talking to himself.  After listening to his music, you either love him or hate him.  But the one thing you know is that you just saw him naked on the stage.  His music might be weird, have no point and consist of talentless instrumentals, but Darren puts on an amazing live show.  And because he is such a great performer, this Lincolnite has gained international fame.
