Eamon McGrath Devestation Trio
Musician and writer Eamon McGrath is a pretty prolific guy. Between years of work on his solo project, writing a book, running a booking company, co-founding July Talk and playing in Julie & the Wrong Guys, he's got all the receipts to back up his talent. His latest album Tantramar arrives just in time for Sled Island and sees him embracing a noirish menace into his oeuvre. Don't miss this a noirish menace into his oeuvre. Don’t miss this ex-Albertan in his latest iteration.

Cold Water
At times sitting at a noir-ish simmer, at others boiling over into Crazy Horse-esque country rock, Cold Water's versatility at making roots rock should come as no surprise. Founding member Kevin Stebner has worked in genres ranging all the way from hardcore to chiptune. More like whiskey than wine, Cold Water is a band that gets stronger the dustier they become.

Bringing some key influences from post-hardcore into a no-nonsense approach to fast, direct rock tunes, SLATES keep a certain timelessness in their musical identity. SLATES have been away from Sled Island for a few years now, and we're excited to see them bring songs from their fourth album (Summery, New Damage Records) to our stage for the first time.

Smokey & the Feeelings
In a way, Nickelas «Smokey» Johnson is the embodiment of Grant Wood's «American Gothic»—foreboding, existentialist, and grimly pastoral. Often starting songs with conventional country twang before descending into all-out carnivalesque madness, Smokey & the Feeelings make melancholy and malaise a prairie staple.
