Kee Avil (Montreal, Quebec): 
https://keeavil.bandcamp.com/

Kee Avil is a solo song project based in Montreal, QC. It combines guitar, voice and electronics into weird song forms that stagger between structure and improvisation. Kee Avil evolved from playing the guitar with broken cymbals and drumsticks into creating strange beats glued together by samples of screws dropped into crystal bowls.


White Boy Scream (L.A.): 
https://wbscream.bandcamp.com/

Dissected opera, experimental voice, reclamation of the diva. Bringing new album "Remains" on Crystalline Morphologies. 

William Hutson (L.A.): 
https://www.talkhouse.com/artist/william-huston/

Sound designer. Producer. ⅓ of Clipping. Solo album "Six or Seven Steps to the Door" uses a reel-to-reel tape recorder, mixer, test tone generator, dictaphones, microphones, and radios.

<<<<https://meowwolf.com/event/dylan-blanchard/>>>>

Steeped in the tradition and belief that rock and pop music can be both a means of entertainment as well as a form of art, multi-instrumentalist Dylan Blanchard has worked extensively as a collaborator with that in mind. Now he’s decided he is ready to step, both proverbially and literally, from the back of the stage where he’s more experienced and comfortable, up to the front. 17 plus years as a sideman and creative contributor to dozens of varied projects has taught him many valuable lessons, and is still his passion in many ways. Recording and touring with such eclectic acts as the Austin based indie-rock quintet, Tristero (drums), the Santa Fe based garage-punk and grunge band, Babelshack (bass), Delaware based singer-songwriter, Danny Whitecotton (drums, keyboards), and the wildly impractical but equally as fun 25-piece folk/rock orchestra known as Apple Miner Colony (drums) have all helped shape Dylan into the musician and songwriter he is today.

With his ear sharpened for the many different ways songs can speak to their listeners and the possibilities for instrumentation and arrangement to transport a great song to the level of a moving and transformative listening experience, it felt like time to let his songwriting speak with its own voice. The new 7” record, “A Ghost in Arroyo Hondo (Just One of Many)” out on Matron Records this July, marks the first time since his years at the College of Santa Fe that Dylan went into the studio to create something entirely his own. The result is a taste of what will be more to come. Contrasting styles, timbres, and influences come together to make something at times both catchy and dissonant, energetic and dark, joyful and sad.

In preparation for live performances, Dylan has recruited long time friend and collaborator, Ben Clary (Apple Miner Colony, Bipedal Approach), as well as Brendan Carn (Szalt and Place Projects, Grandma Sparrow's Piddletractor Orchestra), Marcus DiFilppo (Future Scars, Cripple) and Ten Ten Division bandmate, Vonnie Kyle (Vonnie Kyle, Mark Mallman) . The new group is currently making ready to hit the road this July with friends and label-mates, Future Scars. For Dylan, the prospect of honing the chops of this newly formed ensemble on the road is a source of giddy excitement. Not to mention promoting the release of his first ever vinyl record, which has been something of a bucket-list item for him since his late teens.

PRISM BITCH (Albuquerque)

Prism Bitch is a hard rock band that beamed down in 2016 in the dust and wind of New Mexico. The group started as a four piece and asexually reproduced a fifth member in 2017, resulting in a 5 piece mix of heavy guitar/keyboard layers blended with pop hooks/melodies/harmonies and occasional total noise freakouts; often compared to The Pixies and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. In 2 years, Prism Bitch has gone from punk rock coffeehouse open mics to nominations in the Weekly Alibi’s "Best of Burque” 2017/2018 music awards (for Best New Band, Best Party Band, and Best Stage Presence). In the last year Prism Bitch has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Shonen Knife, Le Butcherettes, and Built To Spill. PB spent the end of November in the studio in LA with Toshi Kasai, known for his work with The Melvins, Foo Fighters and Dave Matthews Band. Prism Bitch has a reputation for wild and performative shows, professionalism and friendship.

FUTURE SCARS (Santa Fe)

Future Scars embodies the coexistence of the calm and calamity of waking life. Founded in 2015 by members of As In We, Future Scars is emotionally rooted in the contemplative, melodic atmosphere of post-rock and expands beyond a singular genre’s expectations, often times overflowing into the domain of sheer intensity and fervor. The group couples these drastically varied, yet complementary components with the recurrent flurries of heart-wrenching vocals, creating an aura of earnest exhilaration and beauty. Laced with technicality and the prowess of control, Future Scars construct a sound balanced in adversity, soothing and cathartic yet all the while anxious with anticipation.

Undergoing a line-up change in late 2017 in the midst of writing the group's debut full length and follow-up to their 2016 EP debut, Future Scars has grown into a foursome comprised of the group's original front-woman, Eliza Lutz, with Paul Wagner on bass, Marcus DiFilippo on drums and Dylan Blanchard on keys. Future Scars record their new album this spring to be release on Matron Records in fall 2018.

RUBEDO (Denver)

Rubedo is the physical manifestation of sound streaming from the psyche of its members. This is the alchemy of transgressive synth rock.

PLEASURES - St. Petersburg, FL

"South Florida quartet Pleasures creates a dark psych/cybernetics hybrid that’s somewhere between Manson Family fever dreams at Spahn Ranch and Blade Runner replicants decaying. Live there's a good amount of NIN/Soft Moon theatrics, the uneasy alliance between humans and machines at the center of it all."

A Deer A Horse
Rooted in Brooklyn's DIY scene and inspired by the chaos of their city, A Deer A Horse has grown into a relentless touring act over the years, clocking in almost 100 shows in 2017 alone, and garnering a nod by Audiofemme as one of the hardest working touring bands in the US. Formed in 2011 by former college classmates Rebecca Satellite (vocals/guitar) and Angela Phillips (bass/vocals), the band came into its own with the addition of drummer Dylan Teggart in 2015, as the thundering rhythm section began to channel the weight of their lyrical content.

Their 2017 release, Backswimmer, drew praise from the AV Club, which compared the unlikely marriage of doom metal dirges with vocal earworms to "the Melvins turning in a pop song, finding ways to keep a hook running through a song that’s otherwise grim and sludgy." The album captures the band in their most primal form, a collection of songs with pounding rhythms, enormous riffs and inescapable melodies. 

A Deer A Horse recently wrapped their new album at Silver Cord Studio, home-base of French metal pioneers, Gojira, and are showing no signs of letting up their heavy touring schedule in 2018.

Fox White
Fox White hits hard with a combo of metal riffs and punk energy. Local hero Jessie Deluxe leads the attack with acrobatic vocals that effortlessly cycle between elegant and fierce. 

"Fast and aggressive with complementary departures into their operatic rock." -Jonny Leather, Mecca Lecca

Dusty Santamaria + Moira Ichiban

Songwriter poet Dusty Santamaria met multimedia artist Moira Ichiban on a full moon night in Portland, Oregon. They quickly fell in love, bowed out of their urban lifestyles, and ran away to form an art
focused rock n roll band in the Southern California desert.

Together, the two delve deep into recesses of the rock n roll psyche. Drawing influence from mid-century R&B, gospel, doo -wop, country, and punk to create minimalist dream songs ablaze with shouts, shudders, and symbolism. Primitive drum beats and swamp water guitars serve as a backdrop for vivid, impressionistic lyrics.

The duo have cut their teeth with DIY tours up and down the West Coast and as far east as New Orleans.Their debut album “Love Under Will” was released in 2017 on their own Voodoo It Yourself label.
