Bourgeois Mystics (Austin, TX) Bourgeois Mystics is a for-profit, personal growth cult and “genre-defying dance party waiting to explode,” headquartered in Austin, TX. Founded in late 2014 by four acquisitive ascetics, they slowly bloomed into a multi-national sonic powerhouse, focusing their expressive musical talents on a completely original sound reminiscent of the abstract wit of MF DOOM, zany cheesiness of The B-52's, epic arrangements of Ennio Morricone, and funky grooves of Jamiroquai, all culminating in a distinct sound that’s been described as “Zappa meets OutKast”.

This August, the band celebrates the release of their latest single, "The Most Spiritual", a slammin' dance-funk, holier-than-thou hip-hop banger, by embarking on "The Most Spiritual Tour" (very likely to be the highest-vibrational musical road show in all the western half of the material realm of the United States in August of 2019), with anchor dates in Seattle, Chicago, and Petaluma as the Lagunitas Beer Circus house band.

Jacob Miller w/ Cara Louise Band, Jailbox

Jacob Miller (Portland, OR)
http://jacobmillermusic.net

Jacob Miller attributes his enamoring sound to two brilliantly contradicting influences — formal performance and nomadic adventure. Miller is an accomplished player, having spent seven years leading a sextet, touring throughout North America and internationally to play for crowds of thousands. During that time, his relationship to music surpassed eccentric to border on fanaticism. He dedicated the entirety of his being to investigating, studying and dissecting American music, and his hard-earned understanding of sound is evident in the thoughtful arrangements and subtle production touches that make up his debut release, 'This New Home.'

However, Miller considers his professional stints and intense self-education no more important to the whole than time spent working as a farm hand in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina — which shaped his devotion to the finger-picking style of the region — or countless hours given to vintage recordings alongside aging locals in Appalachia — which culminated his profound appreciation for phonics timeless. Whether it's resonating across Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall or quietly stirring a Midwestern living room, Jacob crafts music with care, sincerity and audible joy.

Cara Louise (St. Louis)
https://www.facebook.com/caralouiseband/
Cara Louise is a singer songwriter from St. Louis, MO. Her backing band includes Adam Donald (guitar, steel), Simon Chervitz (bass), and Scotti Iman (drums). Cara Louise’s sound combines earnest lyrics and twangy vibrato with rock and roll riffs and haunting steel guitar.
While paving her way as an up-and-coming artist, Cara has supported a number of touring acts over the course of her career including Lilly Hiatt, Futurebirds, Blank Range, Sammy Brue, and Pearl Charles. Major influences include Bob Dylan, Carole King, and Leonard Cohen; among contemporary alt-country acts, Wilco, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Brandi Carlile.

Cara began singing and performing at age four when she was cast as Tiny Tim in a local production of A Christmas Carol. She continued musical theatre through her preadolescent years, before discovering a love for underground music and indie festivals in her teens. From the time she could write, Cara logged journals of poetry and short stories — eventually graduating with a degree in creative writing — but it wasn’t until she left college at Southeast Missouri State that she began teaching herself guitar.
With a new tool for songwriting, Cara Louise cut her teeth performing at open mic nights in St. Louis while finishing her degree at Webster University. In 2013, Cara formed her own band and self-released her first set of recordings, To Be Dead Is To Be Known, recorded at Sherpa Studios. The six-song EP, inspired by 1960s Nashville, includes a Patsy Cline-esque ballad, a political satire, and a progressive title track about artistry and death. After briefly touring the Midwest, Cara Louise Band released their debut LP Fire’s Out through Gaslight Records in 2016.

Googz & Satan's God are going on tour. Like everything they do, it is probably ill-advised! If you see a gap between dates, it probably means we need help! Please, and Thank You!

For extra Satanism at the Foam tour kickoff, Googolplexia will play this show as Satanplexia (though what, if anything, that'll actually mean, remains to be seen) and also joining us are Seeds of Satan! Unfortunately DEAR SATAN were not QUITE Satanic enough for this show, but I tried! And even as-is, the show was TOO SATANIC for the TapRoom!! Maybe we'll add another act, maybe this'll be enough, who knows!?!?!?

The Medium w/ Brainwaves

The Medium (Nashville, TN)
https://themediumband.bandcamp.com/
Since coming together in 2015, Nashville four-piece The Medium have crafted melodic, intricate pop rock tailor-made for summer nights and sweaty house shows. On their debut album Get It While Its Hot, the band brings together their eclectic musical influences and humorous, big-hearted takes on life and love for their first proper full-length statement.

Comprising Sam Silva, Shane Perry, Michael Brudi and Jared Hicks, The Medium met by happenstance in and around Nashville, and have spent the intervening years playing live and honing their sound, which pulls from the best of '60s pop and psychedelia, '70s rock and current day lo-fi and DIY.

The band wrote Get It While It's Hot in 2016 at their shared home, the Chapel House, and finished recording the tracks in the summer of 2018 in a buddy's garage and at their own home, with production from friend and frequent collaborator Jake Davis, another Nashvillian also known for his work with Rainsticks, Teddy and the Rough Riders, Skyway Man, and others. Since then the tracks have had plenty of time to marinate, with the band playing them around town, on the road and in jam-packed house show living rooms.

Opening track "Caroline" Shimmers with crystalline vocals and gauzy guitar, turning a tale of heartbreak into a breezy sing-along that's sure to be a staple of live shows. Early single "The Groove" refracts the woozy experimentation of Sgt. Pepper through a modern indie lens. Closer "Good Ol' Days" is, as the band describes it, the quintessential The Medium song, heavy on rose tinted nostalgia and even heavier on tasty vocal harmonies.

Lyrically, the band splits up songwriting duties between Silva and Perry, with Get It While It's Hot's narratives showing both their sense of humor ("Some of it's just a bunch of gobbledygook," Perry offers) and their honest introspection. "We like to draw inspiration from real things, but there's some nonsense, some gibberish thrown in there, too," Silva says with Perry adding, "Some of the songs have a basis in reality, but then turn into spaghetti fun."

Spaghetti fun with a side dish of reality well sums up Get It While It's Hot. The album is a colorful, kaleidoscopic look at the real world as seen by The Medium, and is a hell of a lot more fun than reality ever will be.

Strange Ranger at Foam!

Strange Ranger at Foam!

Strange Ranger (Portland, Oregon)
https://strangeranger.bandcamp.com/
Strange Ranger (fka Sioux Falls) is an Indie-Rock/Post-Punk band from Montana, now based out of Portland, Oregon. The band was formed by the duo of Isaac Eiger and Fred Nixon, who have been playing music together since 2009 when the pair were still in high school. A friendship solidified by their mutual love of early Modest Mouse, the two would eventually make the move to Portland in search of more fertile musical soil. The band would struggle to solidify over the next few years but those hardships would lead to their breakthrough debut full-length, the sprawling Rot Forever under the name Sioux Falls, released in February of 2016. From there it has been a whirlwind of notoriety for the band. Rot Forever was named one of Consequence of Sound's 'Top 50 Albums of 2016.' Later in 2016 the band would change their name to Strange Ranger and release a new EP, Sunbeams Through Your Head, which would make Stereogum's list of "Great EPs from 2016." Those two releases would also lead Stereogum to name Strange Ranger one of "2016's Best New Bands." Along with that name change, the Sunbeams Through Your Head EP would be a prelude of the direction to come for the band with their next release.

Over the Winter of 2016/2017 the band would record their sophomore full-length, entitled Daymoon. Due to be released on Tiny Engines in the Fall of 2017, Daymoon naturally evolves from the expansiveness of Rot Forever in favor of a smarter and more focused approach. Because of that the album feels more subdued and organic in its approach. While Rot Forever seemed like a band throwing absolutely everything out there, Daymoon pulls back and showcases a heightened attention to detail from the group. Yet that honest heart-on-sleeve songwriting still remains even if the band has chosen subtler paths to deliver their message. It a tasteful evolution for Strange Ranger and one that looking back will be seen as a bridge to something even greater to come in the future.

Triptides w/ Flaural

Triptides (LA)
https://triptides.bandcamp.com/
TRIPTIDES is a Los Angeles based psychedelic rock group led by multi-instrumentalist Glenn Brigman. It began in the summer of 2010 as a series of sun-drenched home recorded tape machine experiments. The band has since released six full length records and a number of singles and EP’s. Their music dives through realms of sonic clairvoyance complete with melted guitars, swirling farfisa organs and vocals like
sunlight through the fog.

The band’s latest record “Visitors” was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, with AllMusic calling it “their best sounding record to date” and LA Record describing it as “an
expansive expedition into the undercurrent of the late sixties.”
From international tours to performances at Desert Daze and Barcelona Psych Fest, the band has continued at a strong pace and shows no signs of slowing down. 2019 will see
the release of their new single “Nirvana Now” on Hypnotic Bridge Records and their return to Europe for another tour including several festival performances including Astral
Fest (UK) and Plisskën Festival (GR). They will also be touring the USA in September with stops at Lincoln Calling Festival and Back Alley Ballyhoo. The group will be teaming up with Brooklyn based Greenway Records for a new release in the fall

Flaural (Dever, CO)
https://flaural.bandcamp.com/
It’s rare that a band founded on pushing sonic boundaries is conscious of not alienating the listener. In the case of Denver-based rockers, Flaural, their music feels like the spoils of deep exploration, brought back down to earth for all to observe in traditional rock outfit form.

Flaural / ˈflôrəl / is the unified sum of four equal parts. The hypnotic pulse of Nick Berlin’s kraut rock drum grooves crystalize as the backdrop atop which sprawls the band’s ethereal art-pop-songwriting. Connor Birch’s expansive synths and keys, the unique virtuosity and aggression of Noah Pfaff’s guitar playing, and the resonant croon of Colin Johnson’s vocals and driving bass lines all coalesce into experimental psych rock that warmly invites the uninitiated listener into the unknown.

Following a string of EPs — 2015’s Thin King and 2016’s Over Imaginary Cigarettes — Flaural’s debut LP, appropriately titled Postponement, has been three years in the making. Over those three years, the band has endured the struggles of being an unsigned touring act while playing countless shows across the United States and experiencing both communal growth and personal loss. Early pieces of Postponement were initially recorded while touring through the Bay Area at the now defunct Animal Room Studio, but the album arrangements didn’t begin to take form until the band settled back in Denver and linked up with close friend and producer / engineer James Barone (Beach House, Tennis). Over the course of the next year and a half, the band found pockets of time to finish the recordings. Time becoming a central theme of the album as a whole.

On March 27th, 2017, frontman Collin Johnson’s father passed away after a long struggle with ALS. The album cover serves as an homage to his passing — an image resembling a clock with hands that read 3:27 — and the album’s first single, “The Thinker,” tells the story of his illness. “The Thinker” was originally written following his father’s diagnosis, with Johnson singing, “Nobody likes when you’re not well / Come up, come up, and feel better now.” The song’s lyrics were reworked after he passed, adding the line, “Unanswered questions still haunt me.” The emotional track ends with a dark, hectic, instrumental frenzy of piercing baritone saxophone squeaks layered over sporadic, aggressive guitar and driving drums.

“‘The Thinker’ definitely set a tone for the album in the sense of hardship and having no way out but just dealing with the way things are,” Johnson recalls. “Trying times have no grace and that manifested as a recurring theme through the rest of album.”

Black Belt Eagle Scout at Foam!

Black Belt Eagle Scout
https://www.blackbelteaglescout.com/
https://blackbelteaglescout.bandcamp.com/

Katherine Paul is Black Belt Eagle Scout. Released in September of 2018, Mother of My Children was the debut album from Black Belt Eagle Scout, the recording project of Katherine Paul. Heralded as a favorite new musician of 2018 by the likes of NPR Music, Stereogum, and Paste, the album was also named as a “Best Rock Album of 2018” by Pitchfork, and garnered further end-of-year praise from FADER, Under The Radar and more.

Arriving just a year after that debut record, At the Party With My Brown Friends is a brand new full-length recording from Black Belt Eagle Scout. Where that first record was a snapshot of loss and landscape and of KP’s standing as a radical indigenous queer feminist, this new chapter finds its power in love, desire and friendship.

At the Party With My Brown Friends is a profound and understated forward step. The squalling guitar anthems that shaped its predecessor are replaced by delicate vocals and soft keys, sentiments spoken and unspoken, presenting something shadowy and unsettling; a stirring of the waters.

The end result presents a captivating about-face that redefines KP’s beautifully singular artistic vision.

Of Sea & Stone w/ 7000apart

Of Sea and Stone is back in St. Louis! Join them with their friends 7000apart and TBA on Friday, August 9th at Foam.
Cover $10

Of Sea and Stone
Folk-Americana duo Of Sea and Stone began in January 2014 when Luke Dierker and Morgan Manson matched on Tinder. Immediately exhibiting a rare vocal chemistry, the two decided to prioritize their music, playing tirelessly across their home state, Missouri. 5 years, one marriage, and many shows later, the pair has released their first full-length studio album and has been touring nationally since the summer of 2017. Across the United States, the two are recognized for their captivating vocal harmonies and intimate songwriting. Their recent single I Love You, Goodbye, and it's accompanying music video, premiered on Nashville's The Boot. I Love You, Goodbye is a sterling example of the couple's heartbreaking vocals, as well as their haunting lyrical style that belies their youth. Of Sea and Stone never fails to transport you, making you feel their pain and joy through every performance.

"This new single highlights an abundance of paradoxical themes not only in title but even in execution – as their polished and poised vocal harmonies, cascade over their raw and vulnerable songwriting. There’s a certain inevitably expressed in “I Love You, Goodbye” – but we’re just thankful this real-life duo has found harmony in their own unity, and continue to graciously share their combined vulnerability and strengths with us.” - For The Love Of Bands

7000apart
“We Are More” - together. The up-and-coming Swedish/American duo, 7000apart, is stepping into a high note of their music career by releasing their debut album, “We Are More”, shining a hopeful light on relationships and overcoming struggles. The story began for this husband-wife duo with Amelie leaving Sweden to attend a U.S.A high school as an exchange student, where she met Jon and they fell in love. As Amelie’s exchange year ended, 7000apart was created as a way of keeping their relationship strong while being 7000 kilometers apart. After three years of long distance, they were reunited and got married. By then, their music project had grown from having something in common to a passionate career pursuit. “Organic pop” is the best way to label the genre of the album, with powerful vocals and inspirational songwriting. “We Are More” was recorded in the heart of Sweden and contains 10 songs that bring the listener on a journey of love, hope and overcoming struggles.

You may have seen Samuel Gregg slinging guitars in Beth Bombara's band, or with the Essential Knots. Now, Samuel Gregg steps into the spotlight with an album of his own. He will be joined by a cast of notable St. Louis musicians to bring his songs to life. Also performing: the man, the myth in flesh, Ryan Spearman

More about Samuel Gregg (a show review):
"Samuel Gregg played a beautiful set of moving folk-hymns inspired by stories and songs from the very beginnings of Americana music. Playing tracks from his EP, Wasting Daylight, and previewing songs from his upcoming album he had the audience in his spell for the entire set. His lyrics and sound are steeped in tradition and Gregg’s music pays homage to those that came before him while creating timeless fables for others to follow for years to come." -Music Savage

Backwash w/ Forager, SURPRISE BAND

Dang, we love a lot of things and one of them is certainly surprises. We have a GREAT one for you. We have a fantastic secret opener, but we can't tell you who- we can only say you DO NOT want to miss out! Don't be that guy hearing about it on the internet later all butt hurt you missed out on this.

You've been warned.

Also appearing...

Forager (Cleveland, OH) - https://foragermusic.bandcamp.com/
Surfgaze or whatever you want to call it... Dense reverb. Lots of hooks. A power-trio anchored by songwriting duo Raye Hart and James Thain- Forager has already landed gigs opening for Best Coast, Screaming Females, Ought, Cloud Nothings, Hinds, and The Beths while playing out in support of their first release "Deadbeat Suite." Surf-inspired tracks like "Solitaire" and "Fallout" have begun generating buzz on college radio and with indie bloggers both stateside and internationally. The band is currently touring and releasing additional material later this year.
