Dad Bod

Dad Bod is an Indie Alternative band out of Salt Lake City, Utah made up of 5 band members. Three brothers- Michael, Marcus, and Matthew Marinos made up the original members of the band, joined eventually by Russ Allphin and Michael Morgan. The band has been inspired by artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Elliott Smith and Big Thief. Dad Bod has released an EP and two full length albums, including their most recent album release “Pastels” in 2021. The group has had the opportunity to play in major festivals such as the Twilight Concert Series and Kilby Block Party. They have also had numerous tours throughout the western US that has helped their fanbase continue to grow. In preparation to release their third album, Dad Bod has released singles “Alcohol” and “Fine Print”. The much anticipated album “Loop de Loop Miracle Ministries Lords of Glory” will be released early summer of 2024.

Oruã

Former members of Built to Spill and formed in Rio de Janeiro, Oruã has become stalwarts of the Brazilian lo-fi music scene. The band is lead by critically-acclaimed guitarist and producer Lê Almeida and is joined by long-time collaborators João Casaes (synths), Bigu Medine (bass) and Phill Fernandes (drums). Together, they blend lo-fi indie rock, krautrock, noise, afrobeat, and Brazilian references that range from Luiz Gonzaga’s primal Pernambuco sound to classic Brazilian psych rock. In 2019 their sound was discovered by indie rock legend Doug Martsch of Built to Spill, which led to him inviting Lê and João to become temporary members of the 90’s indie rock band. Later they recorded, co-produced, and co-mixed Built to Spill’s most recent album, When the Wind Forgets Your Name, released in 2022 on Sub Pop Records.
 
After touring extensively with Built to Spill and showcasing their high-energy shows in the US and Europe throughout the years, Oruã will return to the US in 2024 in support of their forthcoming album, PASSE on Transfusão Noise Records. Their sound continues to mix the electric pulses of deconstructed guitars over a mesmerizing groove, taking both audience and band into a collective trance
