Olympian Ethan Tucker signs record deal with Capitol Records

If Ethan Tucker falls short of his goals, it won't be for lack of persistence. Signed just weeks ago to a multi-record deal with Capitol Records, the Olympia-born singer-songwriter has never been afraid to take a chance and never been too willing to take "No" for an answer. As a teenager,

Friday, July 26: Bandolier

Pop aficianados Bandolier boast enough bubbly orange sunshine in their sound to propel their motor scooters sans power. A blend of dancey keyboards with the pop vocal layering of traditional songwriting from the 1960s - well, yeah, that's pretty much the story here. Pop as pop can be songcraft, a
