Ports Of Spain

"Ports of Spain present the listener with a sound standing firmly on the cutting edge, but with a feeling so natural one wonders why no ones done it before."
- Dirigible Press
"I honestly hand on heart know that I love the Winters Teeth EP."
- State of The Music
"fast-paced and experimental, catchy, surprisingly-not-better-known"
- Musicfyre
"A band to watch."
- The Noise

You Scream I Scream 

You Scream I Scream (Nantucket/NYC/Connecticut) is at its core a three-piece band with distorted bass guitar and vocals (Floyd Kellogg), Rhodes and synth (Jake Vohs), along with floor tom-driven drums and big cymbals (Audrey Sterk). The music’s unique fingerprint is part Talking Heads in its beats and the lyrics’ sometimes dark playfulness, and Floyd’s vocal stylings—baritone singing and yelling c ontrasted with “bitchy girl” backing vocals—and stripped-down instrumentation can be reminiscent of Morphine or Soul Coughing. Bug in a Light, the band’s debut album, led to opportunities such as performances at Hip Video's CMJ Showcase at Maxwell's in Hoboken and WBRU's annual rock showcase at Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, along with several catchy music videos shot by Brendan "Spookie" Daly in Hartford, Conn., and on Nantucket, landing spots on MuchMusic’s "The Wedge,” MTV, New York Noise and YSIS will soon release their second record, which was recorded in Hartford and mixed in St. Louis by Floyd with fellow producer Carl Nappa. When not busy designing and painting murals everywhere and recording/producing fellow bands (such as NYC's Steel Phantoms and The Sweet Ones) at their studio in Connecticut, You Scream I Scream plays high-energy, loud, electro-grunge shows around New England and New York.
