Burger Records & (((folkYEAH!))) Present Tomorrow's Tulips (burger record release show!) / Teenage Chain / Matt Baldwin

tomorrows tulips:
Squished between Los Angeles and San Diego, Tomorrows Tulips give birth to a sound that is culled from equal parts pop experience and esoteric interests. A comfortable wave from a van window, paying homage to the DIY aesthetics of undergrounds past. Internet whispers mumble "Pavement

at the beach," "lackadaisical affair," loser rock and bummer pop. Whether it's worshipping alien lanes or getting called Kurt Cobabies, Brent from Further said "Alex and Ford are keeping your underground slightly outta tune rock safe." Tomorrows Tulips initially formed as a refuge from Alex Knost’s then band Japanese Motors (Vice Records) in 2010. Soon after bedroom recordings blossomed, visual artist Thomas Campbell released Tomorrows Tulips’ debut album “Eternally Teenage” on his then label Galaxia Records. The sophomore album “Experimental Jelly” was released in 2013 on Burger Records, and exhibited a “more diverse” sound than its predecessor due largely to the addition of Ford Archbold on bass guitar and accompanying vocals. “Experimental Jelly” was recorded by Jamie Dutcher (HOLY SHIT, Sam Flax) whom the group met through mutual shows and tours. Tomorrows Tulips’ 3rd LP "WHEN" showcases the group’s evolution through a blend of pop sensibilities with post punk, noise rock and DIY recording techniques—endeavors that demonstrate the band’s interest in experimentation and impromptu deconstruction. “WHEN” also features current PIXIES bass player Paz Lenchantin on distorted violin and feedback on several tracks.

Teenage Chain:
One dude from San Francisco who likes Jesus and Mary Chain a lot. Bring your eyeliner and cigarettes.

Matt Baldwin:
Matt Baldwin is an exceedingly talented acoustic guitarist with his haunting, intoxicating solo debut. He is the visionary wildcard of today's solo guitar music, the ambitious fever dreamer, the serpent in the grass. He is featured on Tompkins Square's 2006 Berkeley Guitar LP. He covers Krautrock legends Neu! 'Weissensee' ,Metal Vikings, Judas Priest 'Winter', and he culls inspiration from Prog heroes,Yes, on the closing epic 'Rainbow'. His music comes on like a creeping moss, verdant but threatening, comforting yet unsettling. Matt Baldwin, raised in California's rustic Pacific Grove, educated in the alternative mecca of Berkeley, sits in the center of this quiet, swirling scene. Towering tall with long blonde locks, he conjures from his axe dark and mystical realms. He calls his music 'New Age', and he may not be joking.

In Matt's work, his role as interpreter is just as crucial as his role as originator. His bold 10-minute cover of Neu's 'Weissensee' and his epic dobro-driven and feedback-overloaded version of Judas Priest's 'Winter' from Paths of Ignition were game changers for a man that felt stifled by association with the solo-guitar purists. On Night in the Triangle, Matt once again expands on the visions of his forebears with daring treatments of songs by The Durutti Column and Conrad Schnitzler.

The visionary wildcard of today's solo guitar music scene, Matt continues to make music that is at once verdant and threatening, comforting yet unsettling. To quote Cope once again, "this so-called folkie Matt Baldwin druid is nothing less than a one-man Heavy Metal Band!...Brothers'n'sisters, it's fucking heroic. These Great Fists of Matt make Ben Chasny sound like Marge Proops in comparison."
