Show #047: Dutch Rudder

Since I started the last two shows with a cliche, let me complete the trilogy by starting this one with the old saying, "Youth is wasted on the young."  This week we present Dutch Rudder, a fresh-on-the-scene underground/DIY band that in just a few weeks since forming has already put together quite a bit of original material blending "math rock," hardcore, progressive, jam band, and indie sensibilities into an ambitious sound that mirrors many of the contemporaries in their scene, like Kurt Rambis (Show #036), but with an emphasis of expressing the emotion of a song musically rather than lyrically, and creating elaborate arrangments over showcasing technical wizardry.  Basically, it's good stuff, and though the quality of the demo is pretty rough -- recorded in true DIY fashion in a garage with a single microphone -- it's definitely worth checking out.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
