Manatee

“Minor-keyed, depressive indie rock” never sounded so ambitious… At just over a year old, this four piece band out of Oakland, California has self-released a debut album; fine-tuned their rhythm section with the addition of two veterans of the San Francisco bay area music scene; and developed their singular live show while expanding their fan base at premium venues throughout the bay area, playing with the likes of Audrye Sessions, The Soft White Sixties, and Mister Loveless.

As if all this wasn’t enough for an up and coming band, team Manatee was instrumental in the production, release, and distribution of the Rose Hill Collective Volume 3, a twenty-one song sampler featuring two tracks from Manatee, who more than hold their own alongside music from Bay Area heavy hitters such as Audrye Sessions and Poor Bailey. Led by Casentini, the band gave away 5,000 copies of the compilation during the fall and winter of 2010 to enthusiastic music fans throughout the Bay Area.

And 2011 promises more of the same: the band is currently at work on pre-production for their sophomore release and booking a winter 2011 tour. Manatee will take the show on the road from January through March and make an appearance in Austin, Texas for 2011’s SXSW festival.

Rob and Kate base themselves in Austin, TX and tour frequently. This is a hardworking band.  They have played in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee, Miami, Orlando, Tampa/St. Pete and Sarasota as well as many more cities in Florida, Wisconsin and Canada all while continuing to excite audiences around Central Texas.  Before Dawn has also been wowing crowds at festivals such as Tropical Heat Wave, North VS. South, Texas Rock Fest, Mid Point Music Festival, Steel Bridge Songfest, Sled Island Festival in Calgary and more unofficial SXSW shows than they care to mention.

To date Before Dawn has three releases, “Drowning”, “Beats for Heat”,  and “Brush With Greatness” an LP, EP and another LP respectively.  The duo recently completed their sophomore full length album, “Brush with Greatness”, in 2011, as well as making their second music video.  As the buzz continues to grow the momentum of this touring machine seems to increase exponentially.  In fact Before Dawn’s work is slated to be featured in the up coming Paramount Pictures, film, “Fun Size”, in theaters 2012, as well as the documentary, “Going Attractions”, about the rise and fall of the drive-in movie theater.

Before Dawn is about far more than just music, they are artists and scientists who weave together sound, sight and emotion in a highly personal way. They even build some of their own synthesizers.  This duo makes music videos and painstakingly tend to every detail of their artistic vision.  They grow bonds and alliances with other artists and simultaneously remain fiercely independent and  DIY.  Rob and Kate Houle really just love to create, they approach Before Dawn, music and art with a wholly pioneer spirit.”

With the help of Craigslist and mutual friends, Kickbush first performed as a trio at the legendary Double Door in Chicago. Creating original, experimental rock, we expanded to 4 and have been gigging and recording for the last 3 years. Recent shows include packed houses at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall, The Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville, Fitzgerald’s and O’Sullivan’s in the burbs, the Upland Brewery in Bloomington Indiana, as well as shows throughout northern Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.

The scathing nostalgia of “Veggie Burritos” became a fan favorite as both a celebration and criticism of the wanderers on the jam band scene.

Does She Think of Me is a lusty reflection of the yearning that penetrates everyday life.

Skillful drumming, dual-guitar (occasional slide and lap steel guitar), powerful vocals, rock solid bass and moments of free form expression add to the songwriting.

The self-titled debut album is available for download at iTunes and Amazon.
