In 2012, Seattle production duo ODESZA began as a recording project between Harrison Mills (aka Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) after graduating from Western Washington University. Their first release, Summer’s Gone, was a mixture of dreamy, sun trickled melodies, glitched out vocals, crunchy drums and large sweeping bass lines. Two tracks from Summer’s Gone, “How Did I Get Here” and “iPlayYouListen,” reached #1 on the Hype Machine Popular chart, cementing the duo as a force in the underground electronic community.
2013 saw the release of the My Friends Never Die…MORE INFO

The Marshall McLean Band was born out of the Northwest, and it carries with it the unique sound that is becoming distinct to this part of the country. The four-piece band, based out of Spokane, has brought forth a fresh idea; that one can merge elements of thoughtful songwriting in folk, the driving force of rock, and the melodic accessibility of Americana and carve out a new genre – a kind of NW Americana Rock.
One of Spokane’s favorite songwriters, McLean manages to write songs without pretension. He sets reflective…MORE INFO

The band spent most of 2012 writing, recording, and painstakingly mixing the 10 songs that comprise the album once again with Monte Vallier at Ruminator. As Monte was in Half Church and a close family friend of Shaun’s, he had long ago offered his recording services since the very beginnings of the band. Despite the all-too-familiar time lapse of the recording and mixing process Durkan recounts the Jinx sessions as “the most trying though rewarding experience so far.” During this time, Weekend relocated cross-country to the already heavily…MORE INFO

Formed at the tail-end of 2008 as a bedroom recording project, Small Black first made waves with their eponymous debut EP. Recorded in the attic of singer Josh’s uncle’s remote Long Island beach-house/surfboard workshop, it served as an ideal introduction to the group with its pulsing patchwork synths and addictive, stay-gold hooks that seemed to unfurl themselves gradually over repeated listens. Slightly more immediate and polished than its predecessor, Small Black’s debut LP New Chain remained a continuation of this contrasting ethos – a delirious smudging of the lines…MORE INFO

Eilen Jewell is the queen of the minor key. Sad songs are her wealth and finery. But beware, savvy observer. Do not confuse the singer and her songs. Eilen’s fans have marveled at her warmth, unique wit, and onstage humor. Her song writing is a blend of influences from early blues, rockabilly and surf-noir, to 1960s era rock and roll. Her repertoire includes everything from up-tempo rockers that swing, to stunning, lyrically poetic ballads. The Los Angeles Daily News wrote, “Sometimes as darkly damaged as Lucinda Williams, at others as defiant and teasing as prime Peggy…MORE INFO

Future Islands’ romantic synth sound scales new heights with On the Water, the Baltimore trio’s most ambitious and fully realized statement yet. Built around a song cycle exploring love, loss, and memory, their latest album finds the band continuing to deliver pounding rhythms, swelling melodies, and undeniable hooks – but finding new ways to probe inner space and tug at hearts.
Convening in March 2011 in Elizabeth City, NC’s historic, waterfront Andrew S. Sanders House, vocalist Samuel T. Herring, bassist William Cashion, and keyboardist Gerrit Welmers lived together in a…MORE INFO

There’s no tomorrow / Set a place at the table
If every story is a story about love, what of suffering, surrender, and redemption? Life says they’re in there too. Along with traffic jams and dishes, jobs and sunsets and spilling all the red wine on the floor. All of it.
Naomi, the fourth record from Northwestern mystics The Cave Singers, is a totem to these things: the every-, any-, all- ways of life. Written over the span of ten months and recorded in one, it bears a new and more…MORE INFO

Close your eyes and imagine your second kiss. Forget the first one, that nervous smooch fueled by hormones and peer pressure, and fast forward to the one where you get it right. Maybe it was an intense make-out to slow jams on the Homecoming dance floor, or in the backseat of the Honda you borrowed from your mom. But in the glow of the headlights or neon nights, if you listened closely, you’d hear Barcelona.
The Seattle-based trio Barcelona makes soulfully sultry rock seeped in synth wash and falsetto that…MORE INFO
