Conestyle is a band from Nashville, Tenessee. We played with them over a year ago for Monsters' album release at the Soma Center. They've got an intense, minimal setup--just drums and organ sounding keyboard with the occasional vocal chant or story read off a push-and-play storybook for kids. Obviously from the Monsters reference, they're friends with Tumbleweave, and recently did a show with them in Conestyle's hometown.

Conestyle - Preemptive Karma

Their Organizer EP is pretty engaging, with a lot of hectic drumming (which is a prominent element of Conestyle's sound), and quick part changes. The song posted about is from this release. What I enjoy most about their songs in contrast to what I've been listening to lately is that it sounds like a band--you can tell they can play their instruments--it's got a very real and exciting feel to it (and they've got a killer live performance to back that up).

For fans of Monsters, Tumbleweave, and Hella.

The song posted above is from their upcoming full length which is yet to be titled. Expect it sometime around September.

Check out their live performance, this was such a good night.
