"I have cyclops vision now. But I'm not a giant. I changed my name and body only, and stabbed my social nous in the right ear. I still read fear but there are no police this year. I can repeat the same dream. I can let birds talk to me. I'm in jail. I have love and a whistle. I lay where the lotus lay and then spring the frozen flowers on any giving day. I apologize to those put in the trees, but I was gathering the Cyclops reap.

In the span of 4 1/2 years. I've lived in two different apartments and have used three different rooms during this time. All in Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA, only a couple miles from one another. After the death of my father in 2008 I started writing and recording non-stop in these rooms. I can't say it was directly because of that trauma, but I think deep down it might have much to do about it. This record was initially going to be a collection of the many songs trapped between the 4 White Fence LP's. As I was putting that together, there were more coming. a better crop. I couldn't stop. So, instead of a retrospective I said "Fuck It". might as well use the most current songs of the bunch. For the exception of "Make Them Dinner At Our Shoes" which is from 2009."

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Completely fried 7-piece garage punk band of theremin-wielding psychopaths half originating from the flat salt bush plains of Deniliquin and the other from the sea-stained Anglesea coastline, brought together through a share house in Melbourne and a mutual love of Pavement, Thee Oh Sees and Nuggets.

They released their debut EP "Willoughby's Beach" on a limited run of 10" vinyl in October 2011. The first single "Black Tooth" pricked the ears of Triple J's Dom Alessio, who dubbed the band : "a tour de force of reverberated rock'n'roll."

The band soon gained a devoted and at times visceral Melbourne following – selling out several residencies and their debut EP launch at the Tote Hotel. In the following weeks King Gizzard were nominated for Best New Talent at The Age's EG Awards alongside Kimbra, Lanie Lane, Royal Headache and Husky.

2012 began with Gizzard being officially "unearthed" by Triple J, winning a spot at the Melbourne Big Day Out. They also landed a tour with US musician Girl Talk performing sold out shows at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney and Palace Theatre in Melbourne. A huge 2012/13 summer ensued with appearances at Falls Music and Arts Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Cherry Rock and a national tour with Jeff The Brotherhood.
Tiny Ruins
Tiny Ruins
Tiny Ruins is the project of Auckland musician & songwriter Hollie Fullbrook. Born in Bristol, England in 1985, Fullbrook learnt the cello from an early age & at 10, moved with her family to New Zealand. Teaching herself the guitar through her teens, she traveled alone in the US for a while before moving to Wellington in 2005, where she studied & wrote music for small-fry theatre productions.

Tiny Ruins was named as such when, while reading a passage in a book that mentioned ruins, a favourite song of Fullbrook's, She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain as performed by Tiny Bradshaw, played on her stereo. Sharing rough tape-recorded demos of her songs with music-minded friends, they garnered attention from beyond New Zealand's shores; in 2010, she was asked to fly to Sydney to support Scottish folksinger Alasdair Roberts, and was then duly signed by influential indie label Spunk Records.

Tiny Ruins' first album, Some Were Meant For Sea, was recorded in South Gippsland, Australia by J Walker (CW Stoneking, Holly Throsby, Machine Translations). Released in mid-2011, said the New Zealand Herald, "From time to time an album comes along that stops you in your tracks and demands you to listen. Tiny Ruins' Some Were Meant For Sea is one such record". Australian press were also smitten with Mess & Noise noting, "the songs sway and heave with warmth and approachability". The album saw a UK release after being championed by BBC 6 and BBC 2. It was hailed by BBC World Service programme The Strand as one of the top five albums of 2011. Her new album, Brightly Painted One, came out on Bella Union in May 2014.

"The new LP from Auckland, New Zealand's Tiny Ruins is shaping up quite beautifully. It's called Brightly Painted One, out in May, and understated to the point that it might lay too hushed to blip above the radar. On "Carriages" and "Me at the Museum, You in the Wintergardens," Hollie Fullbrook sings with subtle yet precise intonation, casting a dreamlike memory akin to Laura Marling's more subdued numbers or the internal imagery of Angel Olsen's Strange Cacti." --Twentyfourbit.com
Juan Wauters (DJ)
Juan Wauters (DJ)
In 2000, Alberto Wauters left Uruguay to live in a basement in Queens. Two years later he called his son, Juan, to join him. Working at a factory, and with no friends to speak of, Juan turned to music. With his debut Wauters dreams big, sings rad, and films some pretty cool music videos to accompany.
Guy Blakeslee (The Entrance Band)
Guy Blakeslee (The Entrance Band)
Guy Blakeslee (The Entrance Band) delivers his first solo album in ten years. Produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah, Yeah Yeahs), Ophelia Slowly, takes a step back from the dense rock sound his LA-based neo-psychedelic trio is known for, delving instead into a sparse, spooky dreamscape where drum loops, synthesizers, and the occasional acoustic guitar frame his always haunting vocal delivery. Recorded in New York in the fall of 2013, the album focuses on Blakeslee’s recent descent; wrestling with demons and angels alike, he has come through it victoriously, expressing the hopeful message of a modern day spiritual. If this album conveys a type of conversion, Blakeslee doesn’t want you to forget his appreciation for tragedy; the title itself is a reference to Shakespeare’s Hamlet heroine. Recording under his own name for the first time, Blakeslee seems to hint that the intention for this project is intimate and vulnerable, and as anyone who has caught his recent solo dates opening for Spiritualized or Cat Power will attest, he delivers on that promise. Blakeslee has always been a re-interpreter of early American Delta blues. On Ophelia Slowly, his love for the genre is felt not only in his upside down, left-handed electric guitar playing, but also in his soulful howl: needing no accompaniment at all, it’s as comfortable in an Echo Park nightclub as it would a 1920’s Mississippi street corner. “In a way, the words and the vocal performance are the focus of this record,” explains Blakeslee. “The music is there to create a mood for the voice to exist in. It’s the first time there’s not a lot of effects on my vocals, there’s a little reverb, but it doesn’t sound far away. In the past I was covering up my voice, turning it down and drowning it out.” Allowing his vocals to appear front and center, as opposed to his impressive guitar playing, seems to be a decision inspired, in part, by Chris Coady, who not only recorded Blakeslee’s last solo album, Wandering Stranger (Fat Possum), but was the first person to record him at all. The two grew-up together in Baltimore and seem to share an unspoken communication, having collaborated on music together since high school. “[Coady] came to see me play in New York last April and said, ‘I had chills the whole time you were playing.’ He was emotionally connected to the project in a way that I couldn’t find in anyone else,” explains Blakeslee. “It’s great to go back and work with an old friend. His work gets increasingly better every time,” says Coady. Ophelia Slowly was recorded almost entirely at Coady’s studio in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, a neighborhood that informed these eight songs as much as anything else. During the first part of the production, Blakeslee was sleeping in the studio and at night he would walk around Tompkins Square Park and the surrounding neighborhood, listening to the day’s recordings and finishing up lyrics in his head. The opening number, “Haunted City,” written originally about Los Angeles, explores the idea of returning to one’s old stomping grounds, but no longer feeling as if you belong, which hits close to home for Blakeslee — “I used to live in NY and I haven’t spent more then a couple days there in many years. So there’s ghosts of things that happened in the past in that area.” In fact, Ophelia Slowly is bookended with songs that examine cities and the idea of home. The slightly more optimistic closer, “City in the Rain,” speaks to resolution and as Blakeslee explains, “getting back on the journey where it all began.” “I took the final mix of “City in the Rain” to the park in the morning,” says Blakeslee, who has an eye for serendipity and a love for the notion of transcendence. “It began raining just as the rain sound [that appears as an intro to the song] came through my headphones.” Blakeslee’s 2003 version of Skip James’s “I’m So Glad” is currently heard in the soundtrack for Spike Jonze’s Academy Award nominated film ‘Her,’ appearing as the infectious song Scarlett Johansson’s O.S voice/character shares with Joaquin Phoenix, confessing she can’t stop listening to it.
