Friends and Family
Friends and Family
"It's honest, sad, and epic but without being big or bombastic..." - Charles Mudede, The Stranger

"Like Johnny Rotten meets The Band!" - Malcolm Guite, Cambridge Scholar

"Quirky indie pop from an eight-piece band that aims for a New Pornographers or Broken Social Scene sort of thing, only goofier and with more elaborate costumes." - SW Reverb

"Friends and Family are from another Seattle, a Seattle where people read books, make jokes, and sometimes sweat from doing things other than bicycling." - Bart Cameron, Ball of Wax Audio Quarterly

"As if the weird members from eight different bands ended up in the same band." - Clinton Ring

"Really, Friends and Family is the only 9 piece band I've ever seen where I thought every part was necessary, complimentary, and lovely." - Nouela
Night Cadet
Night Cadet
Night Cadet is a dream pop quartet that formed in June of 2012. Songwriter/keyboardist Seth Garrison and violist/composer Barret Anspach met in NYC, where they both played (and still play) in The Fancy, an NYC-based chamber pop group. After relocating to Seattle in early 2012, Seth became reacquainted with an old friend, guitarist/keyboardist Garrett Vance, who had played in Secret Shoppers and an early incarnation of Perfume Genius. United with a common affinity for orchestral pop music, torch songs, and 1950's slow dance tunes, the band was hatched. Drummer Spencer Bray completed the group by their second show in late July.

Since then, Night Cadet has shared the stage with Indians, Seapony, Pure Bathing Culture, and Magic Mouth. In December, they recorded an eponymous EP with local producer Erik Blood which was released in February 2013.
Wishbeard
Wishbeard
Wishbeard is a psychedelic dream pop machine based out of Seattle, WA. Since their inception in 2012, Wishbeard has been wowing audiences with their imminently danceable brand of heartfelt shoegaze. Drawing from a wide variety of influences anywhere from Joy Division to M83, Sleater-Kinney to Electrelane; the 4 piece has hit their stride creating warm sonic soundscapes of lush synth washes and effected guitar, punctuated by a a rhythm section aimed at getting bodies in motion. They have been steadily winning fans in the Pacific Northwest, and have shared the stage with acts such as Austra, JD Samson’s MEN, Friends and Family, Valleys, and Mary Lambert.
Tenderfoot
Tenderfoot
Tenderfoot is the folk project of Seattle-based songwriter Adam Boehmer.
