Neon Indian
Neon Indian
An elusive project from composer Alan Palomo, Neon Indian delivers equal parts synthetic nostalgia, dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts.

Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Orbiting around the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances, this music provides a lush soundtrack to the deadbeat exploits of teenage ennui. Neon Indian's bedroom ballads have already forged the upcoming Psychic Chasms, set for release this summer. They've been compared to New Order, Future Bible Heroes, and most recently said to sound like a saw-wave cutting a Doobie Brother's song in half. Expect much racket to be had from this fresh faced crew.
Kreayshawn
Kreayshawn
Kreayshawn is just a stage name Natassia Zolot, who was born in San Francisco and grew up in Oakland, California. Music runs in this young diva’s family. Her mom Elka Zolot was in an influential San Francisco punk garage band called the Trashwomen. Even though Kreayshawn has gone a different direction with her music (less guitars and more beats!), she’s definitely inherited her mom’s punk spirit and DIY attitude, but has all the swagger and flair of a street-wise Oakland rapper. She works with a posse she calls the White Girl Mob, consisting of herself and her friends DJ Lil’ Debbie and vocalist V-Nasty.
Believers
Believers
Believers is the long standing, ever-gestating brainchild of Tyler and Wesley Powell. Interweaving careful melodies, driving bass riffs, and subtle samples over a rhythm-heavy, double-drummer backbone, their music has an undying love of pop at its core. Choosing to collaboratively pursue this end initially in 2009, they changed their lives and moved in together to do so. After amassing a collection of sapling songs but without a band, the fruits of their labor proved somewhat abstract. So, putting that endeavor to sleep for the moment, they parted ways. After a year of false starts on either side of the Atlantic, they finally overcame the fears of their pursuit and reunited in the heart of the Heartland [Columbia, Missouri] two years ago to continue to do what they set out to do. Recruiting two drummers and a bassist cousin to realize their work, Believers became a real band. They've been playing weekend tours and, for the majority of last year, have scraped together time outside of menial work to finish their first release. Bent on realizing the thing in a do-it-themselves fashion, they recorded, produced, and mixed the thing on their own. It's taken some time, but the fruits of their labor have finally been made concrete and pressed to vinyl [music.believersbelievers.com]. They/we hope to god/gods/void you enjoy it. Maybe they'll/we'll see you soon.
