The rich and hauntingly beautiful music created by Evelyn Taylor and Nicholas Frampton\, is a blend of classic songwriting (think 60s/70s folk rock vibes) and modern dream pop.\n\nWith Evelyn’s lush\, ethereal vocals and Nicholas’ polished harmonies\, Field Division is sure to lure listeners with their debut EP\, “Reverie State.” The duo’s poignant and grand soundscapes transport audiences to the lands and experiences they sing of. From the wanderlust inducing lead single\, “Faultlines\,” with tribal drums and brooding guitars\, to the cinematic and heart-wrenching “Hollow Body Weather\,” the duo weaves ambient dream-pop and folk rock into a tapestry of story and enchantment.\n\nThey are currently in the studio working on their first full-length record.

On the group's second album\, Dysnomia (written by Belyamani and Israni)\, Dawn of Midi utilizes sophisticated rhythmic structures from North and West African folk traditions to weave a sonic tapestry of trance-inducing grooves. The music sounds electronic\, but it’s performed live on acoustic instruments. Dysnomia was listed on Best Albums of 2013 by The New Yorker\, NPR Music\, and BBC Radio 3. Jad Abumrad did a short on Dawn of Midi on Radiolab\, uses their music occasionally to accompany stories on the show\, and described their sound as “sort of like ancient folk music\, filtered through highly obsessive computers that actually aren’t computers but people.” Pitchfork calls their music “totally unprecedented\,” and Rolling Stone said their sonic results are “brain-bending\, seemingly impossible.” URL: LOCATION:221 East Washington Street\, Iowa City\, IA\, 52240\, United States CATEGORIES:Music ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID="America/Chicago":20160406T210000 DTEND;TZID="America/Chicago":20160406T235500 DTSTAMP:20160131T070618 CREATED:20160115T042701 LAST-MODIFIED:20160126T163458 SUMMARY:Adia Victoria DESCRIPTION:29-year-old Nashville-based singer Adia Victoria is making her mark on the southern-rock and old-school-country scene. Born and raised in South Carolina\, she moved to Nashville by way of New York and Atlanta. Her primitive songs on misery\, madness\, hope beyond reason and the eponymous South are heavily influenced by Johnny Cash\, Hank Williams\, and Patsy Cline. A gifted poet and songwriter\, Adia tells stories in her music. She got into the music of raw Delta blues legends Robert Johnson and Junior Kimbrough\, a discovery that helped her make sense of being black and from the South in a way she never had before.\n\n"I don’t know nothing ‘bout Southern belles/ But I can tell you something ‘bout Southern hell\," she sings on “Stuck in the South\,” a swampy ballad from her debut three-song EP\, Sea of Sand\, which she released in the spring of 2015.
