Generation Landslide (Houston, TX)
“ Trevor Wallace Houston Underground Music Examiner June 22, 2011 – Generation Landslide is Houston’s newest contestant in the race for the garage/psychedelic crown. Combining 1967 San Fransisco and Texas psych through a Strokes filter with a Dylanesque via Roky Erickson vocal style, the band got some much needed attention at this years Free Press Summer Fest. Had they existed (good Lord) 45 years ago, they would be sharing a stage with The 13th Floor Elevators and Red Krayola. But their self-description says it better than I can without hackeneyed comparisons: ” GENERATION:landslide! is a band whose voice comes from the heart and soul of Houston, TX. These people are songwriters…artists…audiophiles. They have a great passion for music and the common man. They are the champions of “garage”-rock and psychedelia; a band of seekers….” Do yourself a favor and check them out at their MySpace page. You will not be sorry. ” - Trevor Wallace – Houston Underground Music Examiner
“Generation Landslide: Their music is an orchestrated blend of inspiration that includes everything from R.E.M. to Patti Smith. The band’s collective influences has helped them develop a sound that is a calculated hodgepodge of rock and roll rhythm with an infusion of catchy pop melodies.” - Bridgette Zabak – The Houston Press-Rocks off aftermath
“Tomorrow Was Yesterday”. The 12 songs on this disc are a refreshing throwback, a collection of smart, back to basics psychedelic songs. You’ll find more genuine artistic feel and expression here and less over-produced glitz or contrived assembly-line material.” - Hollywood Steve Rangel – Houston Music News

Jared Putnam (of March Divide) (San Antonio, TX)
"Picture it. You’re based in El Paso, Texas, desiring to live your dream of a thriving musician. Then, a CD that you release with a band called Level begins to get some buzz. I mean regional radio play and indie label interest buzz. After some time building a fan base, make a name change to The Conversation, and a move to Los Angeles, you’re now leading a group of road warriors throughout U.S. and Canada, having modest record sales, and a two-album deal.
You’re also completely burnt out.
So burnt out that you return to Texas to completely unplug from the scene, get married, and start a different life. However, after playing with a few friends in Austin, the “hook” brings you back (as Blues Traveler would say). Soon, new songs would be written and a new band called The March Divide would renew your passion for performing again.
This is just a glimpse of the story of Jared Putnam, singer/songwriter of The March Divide." - Groove Loves Melody
