Kikagaku Moyo: Kikagaku Moyo (幾何学模様 Kikagaku Moyō?) are a Japanese psychedelic band from Tokyo. The band’s name translates to “geometric patterns.”
Naked Gods: Naked Gods, formed during the third millennium, are a five piece rock and roll band hailing from Boone, an otherwise sleepy town in western North Carolina’s mountains. Don’t let that geography mislead you; as a unit the band combines the influences of big, noisy guitar indie rock, abstract bass warbling, frenzied drum bursts & vocals capturing the sensitivity & sentimentality of youth lost & found, delivered with swagger by one of the burliest guys you’ve ever seen. Its like the pizza delivery boy stole all their instruments, re-tuned them with some logic heretofore tonally unknown, returned them, & set them loose together in search of melody.
Ghost Trees: Ghost Trees are Seth Nanaa (drums) and Brent Bagwell (tenor saxophone). Nanaa (ex-Indian Summer) and Bagwell (Great Architect) met in NYC in 2000. Along with bassist Jordon Schranz, they formed The Eastern Seaboard. That trio toured the US relentlessly, releasing two records with legendary Italian label Black Saint and a fistful of vinyl and CDs from Tigerasylum Records. After playing together for a decade, the duo have released their debut 10″ on the Future Recordings label.
