Vasudeva
Vasudeva
Vasudeva is an instrumental rock band from New Jersey. Formed out of a lasting high school friendship, the tight-knit trio creates seemingly effortless, beautifully dynamic soundscapes, locked in by a firm backdrop of unrelenting grooves, while drawing on their post-rock, ambient, lo-fi, and electronic forms all in equal measure.

Written from late 2014 to late 2015 after returning home from their first European tour, the band’s second full-length album, No Clearance, is the product of countless hours of listening, observing, tweaking, and evolving, honing in an impressive spread of recording techniques and production styles, while redefining genres in the process.

Self-recorded with an array of colors in their sonic palette, effects pedals, tape players, samplers, drum machines, and a Rhodes piano were just a few of the components used in the making of No Clearance (mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden), capturing Vasudeva at their rawest, yet most refined form to date.

The band’s name, coined from the character in Hermann Hesse’s 1922 novel, Siddhartha, was chosen for his quiet, yet profound and eye-opening role in the story, similar to the band’s own deliberate pace and strong musical dynamic. Now, with the release of No Clearance and a year full of touring ahead, the band certainly has something worth hearing.
Curse League
Curse League
Curse League started in late 2015 when Kai Brunson recruited Chester Cun and Jake Campbell to play in a musical project in which shreddy guitars and technical drumming would underpin all the songs. Although initially a side-project, by spring of 2016 the band recognized the potential of their sound and released their first EP “Bodega Disco.” They toured up and down the west coast before recruiting Alexandria Hickel on bass guitar. With Alex on board, the band continued to play local shows, tour, and write new music. In 2017 the four piece continued to play out, taking short breaks to write and record their sophomore release “Laying by The Fire in Good Company.”
