Nick Hakim
Nick Hakim
Raised in Washington, D.C. in a household overflowing with musical diversity ranging from soul, hip-hop, go-go, folk music and more from his Chilean and Peruvian parents, it comes as no surprise that Nick tends to blend genres, mixing the ambient airy sound of psychedelic, with the raw gut-wrenching emotion of the blues. He performs a broad range of the instruments heard on the EP alongside shared production duties, with an early admiration for Marvin Gaye and Harry Nilsson seeping through these introductory recordings. The vulnerability of Nick's vocals, intimate and silken, is a powerful instrument in its own right that never pushes itself to excess.

Hakim explains of his debut EP, "I was caught in a hazy gloom, alone in my room, filled up with booze while writing this music. I would write very early in the morning after nights of no sleep. Dunkin Donuts coffee wasmy friend. I would set up a mic, record, and later make sense of whatever came out."
Yellerkin
Yellerkin
Yellerkin is a rising indie duo from Brooklyn, comprised of Adrian Galvin and Luca Buccellati, two childhood friends who have known each other for over 20 years. They grew up together in the woods of Katonah, and reunited after college, helping one another to yell their stories of love and family. Yellerkin released their debut self-titled EP in February 2014, which features their single "Solar Laws." After a few performances with friends Young & Sick and their debut appearance at SXSW 2014, Yellerkin is preparing to release new music before the end of the year.
Lolawolf
Lolawolf
Lolawolf is a band from NYC fronted by Zoe Kravitz. The band also includes Jimmy, James and Raviv from Reputante, whose EP is out on Julian Casablancas' label, Cult Records. Lolawolf's debut EP will be released in early 2014 on Innit Recordings.

Pitchfork: "…surging electronic pop [that]…strikes the balance of Chromatics' bleary synth-driven brightness and Lana Del Rey's detached-yet-dramatized longing."

The Guardian: "Think Solange if she joined the Strokes and they finished that album of Quincy Jones-produced pop they were once rumoured to be making."

Vogue: "From the nostalgic melody of 'Drive,' an indulgent ode to L.A. insouciance, to the flippant, lovesick lyrics of "Wanna Have Fun," Lolawolf oscillates between a sort of West Coast cool and a grimy New York groove."
