The New Era of Funk is Mouth’s first studio recorded and mixed release. While Mouth has put out several live albums and recordings, this will be the first ever studio album released from the band.Mouth made a conscious decision to delay working in a studio until they had developed their sound to where they saw fit. The writing process in the studio lead to new sounds and textures that could only be produced in a studio environment. Hermon Mehari and Brandon Draper provide guest tracks on the tune 'Moufhaus,' otherwise everything you hear is played by the members of Mouth.About Mouth:The Groove Comes First! This is the motto of the Kansas City/Lawrence based instrumental trio Mouth. The band dubs their sound as Cosmic Funk. Consisting of pulsing rhythms, copious amounts of bass, and soaring textural layers Mouth creates funky vibes on the fly that range in influence from funk, fusion, and reggae to dubstep, house, and hip hop. This combined with extensive amounts of improvisation leads every night to be a one of kind evening. By using a plethora of modern, custom equipment, including live looping, the band transforms the traditional 3 piece setup into what sounds at times like full Cosmic Funk Orchestra. Mouth has been causing riots on dance floors since late 2008, and they continue to push the boundaries further and further at each show.

Camp Euforia 2012 Lineup
The Split Livers is a collaborative project between two of the most influential musicians in the alternative/acoustic punk bluegrass scene.Danny is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and genre-bending artists of his craft, Barnes' musical interests are both varied and adventurous, and he incorporates that versatility into a progressive approach to an instrument that is musically polarizing and steeped in tradition. Although he demonstrates an appreciation for the history of the bluegrass, country, and folk music from which the banjo's reputation was born, his inventive take is what truly separates him from his contemporaries…using the banjo as his ‘weapon of choice’ to play non-traditional music like rock, fusion, and jazz with electronic percussion and loop elements.Wayne and Split Lip Rayfield have carved out their own genre of music with their unique sound and instrumentation. Often described as a mix of bluegrass and country with an accent of metal Split Lip Rayfield has been a pioneer on the music scene, bending musical genres and crossing countless boundaries of musical expectations.Together Danny and Wayne bring you an experience like nothing else - Danny and Wayne are joining forces to bring you some classic songs from each of their band's repertoire while also blazing new trails (expect a to see an album release in the near future) that will change the face of music, yet again.-THE SPLIT LIVERS SUMMER TOUR SCHEDULE6-6-2012 Dan Electro’s Guitar Bar | Houston, TX 6-7-2012 The Cactus Club | Austin, TX6-9-2012 The Bottleneck | Lawrence, KS 6-10-2012 Auntie Mae’s Parlor | Manhattan, KS 6-11-2012 Roxy’s | Columbia, MO 6-12-2012 Off Broadway | St Louis, MO6-13-2012 Rock Island Brewing Co | Rock Island, IL6-14-2012 Reggie’s Rock Club | Chicago, IL
Often described as a mix of bluegrass and country with an accent of metal, no other band delivers the experience of the homemade gas-tank bass played by Jeff Eaton, sets the mandolin strings on fire like Wayne Gottstine, or makes the banjo sing like Eric Mardis. Together, they burn up speakers and stages alike providing an unforgettable experience. This is one trio not to miss!
Catch Split Lip Rayfield in May on tour in Colorado.
PLM is set to release the new Eliot Lipp album, Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake, on May 22, 2012. This release has Lipp breaking new ground with his ever-evolving production style. He has developed a unique sound that is completely its own yet sticks with the PLM axiom of genre bending originality. The album incorporates everything that has recently been in Lipp's sonic world, including hip-hop, drum & bass, funk, techno, jazz, and more, while still remaining a cohesive whole. The album is heavy on analogue synthesis and very tasteful sample collaging. These two elements make it sound as though it is simultaneously ahead of its time, and from the past.
"Eliot has been an inspiration and a friend over the years. We have played more than several shows together and whether there's 5 or 5000 people in the crowd, Eliot knows how to rock the party. The new style on Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake made it obvious that it was time for the two of us to team through PLM. He manages to stick with the style he has developed while leaning more towards classy good feeling electro hip-hop, and that, after all, is what I'm all about" - Derek Vincent Smith (founder of PLM and producer behind Pretty Lights)
Download the first single "Sunset" and get a taste of what's to come before the entire album drops on May, 22nd 2012 at www.prettylightsmusic.com/
This album demonstrates a side of Lipp's sound that is heavier and more aggressive, with tracks that build tension and suspense, while still maintaining an underlying humor that keeps the bass from becoming too serious. Lipp displays an intuitive knack for teasing melodies out of rhythmic bangers, and draws from a remarkably mature sonic palette - two qualities that set the young instrumental producer apart. Most of the tracks for the album were created while Lipp was on tour, and then put together in the studio to form the album.

Appetite for Construction follows Samples' EP, Life of the Party which was released earlier in 2012. Life of the Party turned a lot of heads and has held up to its name. Samples is taking his producing one step further with his new release, Appetite for Construction. "I wrote a lot of these songs to be main floor anthems and heaters during sets. Instead of focusing on the "Glitch Hop" style of my past, I decided to branch out more into Dubstep and Electro House territory. This new concept on songwriting for the album lends a unique style and sound to Appetite for Construction."
Samples' professional DJ career started in 2006 with a weekly radio show where he covered a wide range of styles and genres, with a focus on dance music and hip hop. Now, Samples produces the music he spins which incorporates original beats, live mixing and lots of, yes, samples, which allows him to do what he does best - make a whole lot of new music filled with both brand news and some recognizable pieces of tunes that are sure to put the dance floor on fire. "My live show is very active and entertaining and my main goal is to make people dance. I'm gonna do that by throwing a lot of samples and songs that you'll recognize and play them in a new and fun way. Even if you've heard any one of my 20+ releases you'll still be getting a new and unexpected live experience."

That 1 Guy (aka Mike Silverman) has just released his first full-length album in nearly four years, an incredible sonic journey that reflects his unique blend of classical, rock, and electronic music.
The album, That 1 Guy explains, is “a deep water journey of discovery and attempted enlightenment. It’s part-one of the four-part Magicland series that will follow (more on that later). Lots of research and development went into this one. The deep water density and pressures were more than we anticipated and so the aftermath is not yet completely understood... Please listen and decide.... “
Averaging 150-200 shows a year all over North America and Canada, That 1 Guy has been a favorite at festivals like Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Big Day Out, All Good, Bella, High Sierra, Summer Meltdown, Montreal Jazz Festival, Harvest Music Festival and many more. He was also the ʻTap Water Awardʼ winner at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for best musical act, and his legendary collaboration Buckethead as The Frankenstein Brothers has further cemented his virtuoso story as a creative visionary as well.

Nederland, Colorado natives, The Magic Beans are thrilled to release their first double album Sites & Sounds. This double album showcases the band's multifaceted, genre-blending, music through original song writing and years of road-testing. The first disc, Sites features The Bean's roots-music side highlighting their mastery of rock, bluegrass, and americana. On the second disc, Sound, the band dives into their groovy side exploring funky rhythms, guitar shredding, synth melodies and driving dance beats while remaining true to their all-instrumental roots.The Magic Beans uses no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music: original compositions, diverse instrumentation, and continual pushing of the musical envelope. Their unique style of music inspires a good time and moves the mind, while tight booty shakin' grooves move the body and soul. Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Magic Beans leave nothing off the table as they combine americana, funk, rock, jazz, bluegrass and electronica into a one sound, sometimes even one composition.

This album showcases the band's evolution since their conception three years ago. After countless tour dates and a whole lotta livin', the band has matured and refined their sound and songwriting while maintaining their lighthearted, upbeat appeal. The band's inspirations are boundless and they draw heavily from American music like jazz, funk, bluegrass, rhythm/blues, soul and folk and fellow contemporary Jam bands. They also heavily cater to their fan base. The Magic Bean's fans are very vocal and the band loves fulfilling their needs.There are a myriad of special guest stars on Sites and sound, including Andy Thorn of Leftover Salmon on banjo, Zebulon Bowles of Whitewater Ramble/Big & Rich on fiddle, Scott Messersmith of The Motet on percussion, Cody Russell of Drunken Hearts on lap/pedal steel guitars and Mark Hanson of A 4 Animal on horns.

“Wakarusa” is a word derived from Native American culture that means “ass-deep”. Of course, back then this described the depth of a river. 2015 will mark the 12th year that we have come to know Wakarusa as a way to define the depth of an experience.
Wakarusa is a rite of passage for a new generation. Any Wakafarian can affirm; those four days on Mulberry Mountain in June are the gateway to the best summer of your life. Wakarusa is one of the few tangible ties that truly bind us together. Each year, music meets Mother Nature at a pristine place where friendships are forged and lifelong memories are made.
When you step foot onto Mulberry Mountain, you are immersed in a community that must be felt to be understood. Regardless of your status as a Waka vet or a Waka virgin, each pilgrimage to the Mountain will change you forever. Wakarusa is much more than a music and camping festival. Wakarusa is an experience that was created by music lovers, for music lovers.
Full Event Passes, as well as Camping, RV, and VIP Passes will go on sale this November. For more information visit the official Wakarusa website: www.wakarusa.com.

In 2012, Butler gathered well-known musicians from Phish and moe. to record Everyone Orchestra’s first studio album, Brooklyn Sessions, which was largely improvised. “The experience of playing with different musicians, improvising every night, and getting the crowd involved in ways that they can’t be at a regular show has provided an unparalleled live music experience,” said Butler. The list of Everyone Orchestra participants is an increasingly wide and intercontinental group including members of The Grateful Dead, Phish, Furthur, Ratdog, Trey Anastasio Band, Gov’t Mule, String Cheese Incident, moe. and the Allman Brothers Band.

Larry will also be performing his Larry Does Jerry All Star Jam & the Larry Keel Experience over the weekend.
The Phases of the Moon Artist in Residence is designed to showcase an artist over the course of the weekend.

Indie Rock band, Coyote Union has launched an Indiegogo campaign in support of their first full-length studio album. The 13-track un-named album will be recorded at Trout Recording Studio in Brooklyn, NY and produced by Bryce Goggin. Goggin has produced Phish’s Farmhouse and Pavement’s Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain to name a few. The band plans to record and mix with Goggin in Brooklyn for two weeks in September and October and is looking to release the album in early 2016.
Coyote Union, a quartet from Mountain Home, Arkansas consists of Jordan Finley (bass, vocals), Jake Sunnerville (guitar, vocals), Randy Merriam (guitar, vocals), and Wes Dorethy (guitar, mandolin, keys, violin, vocals). A small town band with big time dreams all focused on one goal; to make the best music we can make and travel the world playing it. The band is offering contributors to the album a variety of rewards including a pre-release album download, handwritten lyrics for a song or the album, an acoustic video session, personal cover song, a private show, a chance to name the album and much more.
Coyote Union’s sound is the culmination of their influences and experiences, drawing from the down home roots and punk-rock sensibility and the need to create deep connections. Their style is a melting pot of rock, punk, blues, folk, Americana and a touch of classical and grunge, but, no matter what the style, they always play from the heart. Rather than writing hits, Coyote Union’s aim is to reach people that need to hear their songs for inspiration, and to help them through the down times, writing about love, anger, passion, conquering, accomplishment, triumph, sadness and sorrow. Both their dynamic music and deeply moving lyrics take listeners on an emotional roller coaster and pull on the heart strings.
