Moon Honey
Moon Honey
Art student Jessica Ramsey (vox) and island-raised Andrew Martin's (guitar) collaboration began in a small horse stable home in the back swamps of Louisiana in 2013. Within two weeks of meeting, the two declared each other "musical soul mates," and Moon Honey was born. Their vigorous work ethic and unorthodox approach to songwriting culminated in the critically acclaimed debut album Hand-Painted Dream Photographs, mixed by Greg Saunier of Deerhoof. The unlikely collision of Bjork-esque melodies with late '60s-inspired, freak-out guitar riffs landed the band in The New York Times, NOISEY, and NPR, launching a number of cross-country tour performances including an in-studio KEXP session and official SXSW showcases featured on NPR's Top 100 Acts.

After garnering a vigilant West Coast following, the pair relocated from Baton Rouge to Los Angeles in 2015, at which point Logan Baudean (drums) and Bobby Victor (keyboard/synth bass) joined the live act. In the short period following, the group released the single "Boy Magic" (dubbed "splendid prog-pop" by Amoeba Records), headlined Brokechella and Chinatown Moon Fest, and performed at legendary L.A. venues such as The Echo and Echoplex with numerous shows presented by L.A. Weekly and BuzzbandsLA. Inspired by their current tropical terrain and the outlandish culture surrounding the project, the band has just recorded a new album, helmed by John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Sleater Kinney, Death Cab), to be released in 2017.

Wall of Ears
Wall of Ears
WALL OF EARS is a Seattle-based psychedelic pop collective, centered around the ongoing musical vision of CW Lott. Wall of Ears performances are collaborative and immersive experiences, drawing upon collective improvisation, noise-baths, guitar freak-outs, and galactic synth hallucinations - all formulated into gooey pop bliss. Their second record HELLO BEAUTIFUL NOTHING is a "holographic roadmap toward pataphysical transcendence” (City Arts) and "vows to boldly go where no man has gone before" (Entropy Mag). Their sonic energy is both a reflection and a mantra on disintegrating the boundaries between ourselves and the hyper-complex world humming around us.
Prom Queen
Prom Queen
Prom Queen is a cinematic vintage pop band from Seattle that's been described as the soundtrack of a prom co-directed by Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch. The sound is dark and moody and pans across surf to exotica to western to psychedelic rock. The band was named one of the "50 bands rocking Seattle" by Seattle Magazine and their second album "Midnight Veil" was recently released in October 2014 as a video-album, with 12 songs that each have 12 interconnected videos.
