Hey! It’s On An On

Today we feature the Minnesota band On An On. The band was started in 2012 by Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci and Ryne Estwing, who were previously of the band Scattered Trees. After deciding, to scrap the Scattered Trees the band reformed into what is now On An On. Nate mentioned about the band in an interview with WRGW music  blog,

We decided that we wanted to start a brand new band, something fresh. And part of the priority for us, musically, was to go into it what that clean slate and not necessarily have this we want to be this, we want to sound like this, and more of a priority and value the experimentation and capture that exploration. It was kind of exciting because we didn’t necessarily know how it would turn out on the other side. That kept the experience very lively because we weren’t trying to pursue goals as much as trying to explore what we were as a new band and as a new group. It came out as it did. I don’t know what the next record will sound like, it’s just that kind of thing, we’re just more interested in exploration than arriving.1

After signing to a recording deal with Roll Call Records the band streamed the single Ghosts in late August of 2012 and later that year the single, The Hunter (I’ve included videos for both songs below). In early January of 2013, the band released their debut album, Give In. The band has been hard at work touring and writing new music such as the song, Drifting (A personal favorite) and Icon Love. On An On is releasing a new album which is expected to arrive later this month. I’ve been enjoying the new sound the band has been experimenting with on their latest releases, and I’m looking forward to what they have to share with us.

I hope you enjoy the videos I’ve shared. Let On An On be your 4th of July weekend soundtrack. Happy Independence Day friends, have fun and stay safe!

Absofacto, Addicting Indie Rock

Absofacto2

Hey there, sorry it’s been some time since our last post. Lets get right back to the music.

Tonight we feature the Indie Rock band, Absofacto. This is the solo project of Jonathan Visger, singer for the band Mason Proper. Absofacto is based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan and has been making amazing music for some time now. We discovered Absofacto a while back and immediately fell in love with the music. Absofacto has remained relatively unknown but recently, he released the single Dissolve (See video below) which has reached a million listens on Spotify. I’m more than excited that people are discovering the amazing music of this band. For those of you who are fans of the band Pinback I think you will really enjoy Absofacto.

The track Dissolve oozes cool, Absofacto has done a masterful job of combining the indie rock and electronic sound. I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to not groove along with this song. Feathers and Whose Side Are You On Anyway?, have more of a Pinback  style, especially the guitar riffs, which is what hooked me from the first listen. According to Absofacto’s Facebook page, he will be releasing new music soon and I can’t wait to see what he has in store. Comment below and let us know what you think. As always, thanks for reading The Print!
