Manzanita Falls
Manzanita Falls
Formed in the fall of 2011, Manzanita Falls is a four-piece indie-rock group from San Francisco Bay Area. They started out small, playing local shows while developing their distinctive sound. Influenced by bands like The National, Wilco, and The Frames, their sound is comfortably familiar and also uniquely Manzanita Falls. Originally slated to be released in November of 2012, Vinyl Ghost was delayed after the band went through a near-fatal car accident in Abilene, TX that left drummer, Matt Coit, with a fractured neck. After months of healing, the band is ready to go and excited to be bringing their dynamic tunes and captivating performances to a national audience.
The Breaking
The Breaking
The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a stronghold of alternative rock, although Portland's relatively recent rise to cultural mecca has created something of a faddish scene that barely resembles its roots. Nonetheless, a band of '90s-raised Northwesterners from the Rose City still carry the torch that illuminated their upbringing. Their self-titled debut LP, The Breaking, is a testament to the depth of that artistic heritage.

Frontman Adam Sweeney and lead guitarist Tim Karplus form the core of the band, whose vintage sound is best defined by album opener Gone Electric. From its wall of rhythm guitars that honor the band's more raucous influences to its undeniable pop chorus hook, the single represents a solid debut effort that is sure to remind listeners where alternative rock found its footing.
