Nevada City's best kept secret, and arguably one of the most prominent and well-respected musicians in Nevada City, as well as a devoted family man, Aaron Ross is an innovative singer/songwriter known by many for his many versatile psychedelic/folk/experimental solo albums, with 10 self-released full length albums to date. Perhaps best known for his collaboration with the math rock group Hella, as well being the front man of Fresh Young Blood and most recently Solos, a collaboration with drummer Spencer Seim (Hella, The Advantage) with a full-length album produced by Grammy Award winning Guy Massey (The Beatles), which is due out September 2012. Ross' acoustic sets and other-worldly vocals have an almost gospel nature, where lies an expansive valley of richly textured, lyrically poignant humanitarian truths that will reverberate deep in your chest. Pregnant
Being pregnant doesn't sound like much fun. You get huge, everything hurts, it's hard to walk upstairs, and you can't drink gin. I don't even want to go into the whole giving birth thing, because that seems like a real struggle. However, Pregnant is a pretty good band name. Daniel Trudeau makes mutant pop sound-collages using samples, his vocals, and his own instrumentation. Every track I've heard sounds completely different so don't expect what's below to reflect his output, though it is my personal favorite. The Liquidation on Swans tape is out on Life's Blood now and forthcoming is the Ike Wimin 12" on KDVS Recordings. Pregnant - "Liquidation on Swans" - VICE
