Babybuffs

  Producer/composer Annabelle Cannon hops genre like a picket fence. Her work as Babybuffs is a kaleidoscopic exploration of her vast electronic palette: playful synth pads and MIDI strings, skittering hi-hats and boom bap, toy electronics and 8-bit rumbles. All this in pursuit of the mystic and wondrous place where knocking beats and lush counterpoint meet.

Brenda's Friend

  Brenda’s Friend is a smart, fun guitar duo. They rock hard but it’s not harsh. The vocals shine high above distortion, quirky changes keep things fresh.

Dallas Campbell

  In the '70s, one could dance with a robot in outer-space until the sun came up. Now you can drink a glass of orange juice while cruisin’ on the information superhighway. The horizon is chrome and gold, Dallas Campbell is the soundtrack. In the now he lives in West Virginia inside a pile of old synthesizers and keyboards, but Dallas sees the future and the past and every outdated instrument he touches becomes a different kind of cyborg dawn.

Don Muro

  Don Muro is a composer and master synthesist who has been performing, teaching and writing about music since the 1960s. His albums span many genres, including everything from pop and rock to more abstract, evocative instrumental pieces. His work has earned him several ASCAP awards, and at the root of whatever he does—whether it's his 1977 LP It's Time or his demonstration compositions that helped popularize Korg synthesizers in the 1980s—there's an undeniable virtuosity and, perhaps more importantly, a passion for his instrument that can be felt in every note.

Eaters

  Eaters is an ongoing collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Bob Jones, sound engineer Jonathan Schenke, and sculptor Christopher Duffy.    “The textures on Eaters are beautiful: Grim and subdued but so rich you could raise tomatoes in them.”  – Pitchfork    “The Brooklyn duo [has] lovingly brought to life an album that pays tribute to a range of stylistic ventures: warped Vocoder missives, off-the-deep-end funk explorations, and songs framed as immersive, analog synth landscapes.”  – Interview Magazine

Eli Moore

  Eli Moore’s many pop gems stack up modestly, like a nice pile of leaves to lie in. Moore often works alongside his wife, Ashley Eriksson, in a number of pop projects, most notably K Record's stalwarts LAKE. Sleepy and sweet, his voice glides over various gentle modes of chamber arrangements, subdued funk and slow-grooving soul. Moore's songs are best known for a breezy and earthy feel, but his lyrics are never afraid to tangle with doubts and defeats. In fact, it’s these dour realities that bring out the most resilient declarations of positivity in his catalog; hard-won sentiments that always stand firm as oak.

Erin Tobey

  Taking stock of this time gone by, Erin Tobey blends the pastoral, philosophical, and funny mundane: the hubris of youth, the ambiguous middle path between Right and Wrong, seasons changing, device addiction, the self- reflection inspired by closed-circuit TVs in the mall. Her most recent album, Middlemaze, starts with energetic numbers that stomp with shimmering guitars and pop-punk propulsion. This soon gives way to Tobey’s quintessential starry folk, depicting married love and apocalyptic dread with equal tenderness.

Ever Ending Kicks

  Ever Ending Kicks, helmed by Washington songwriter Paul Adam Benson, is a project in disciplined, sculptural pop. Benson’s songs reward the listener through minor alterations, understated gestures and significant voids. Any loops are airless, the rhythm section carefully fragmented into nodes. Sung with plain articulation, Benson’s lyrics confront ego and materialism, then just as quickly conjure aliens in baseball caps, Christian dads in distressed denim.

Frank Schweikhardt

  A consummate world-traveler, Frank Schweikhardt applies his sense of wonder and exploration to his musical ventures. His hushed vocals and attention to detail are perfectly balanced by melodic guitar lines, deep grooves in the rhythm, and tasteful splashes of dreamy synth and vibraphone. This is mood music, in the best way.

Halcyon Tone

  Chillwave/future funk mastermind Josh Lundquist infuses his spacey, boogie-laden take on the Minneapolis sound with a pronounced Japanese influence. Lundquist creates a hot bed of twangy, slappy bass, slick, tight drums, and shiny, bendy synthesizers.

HITS

  HITS are percussion obsessed. They conduct drum circles in the future. Over time a melody develops, the beat is stuck, and you’re wearing it around your skull.

Josh Ottum

  Josh Ottum's music is equal parts human and technological, studio musicianship and consumer software, ofmelodic naiveté and compositional complexity, cliche and expression. These contradictions come together around the human experience in modern society. Much like our relationship with TV music, each song provides a cinematic palate for the listener to project their feelings onto.

Mike Adams

   Mike Adams makes textured pop rock that’s good for the soul. It’s possible that really no one has to do anything and we could all just do this all day. The things that Mike actually does all day are host a talk show, parent his children and try to move through adulthood with integrity and honesty in his hometown of Bloomington, Indiana.         "While there is an unforgettable instant catchiness to these songs, there is a depth, both lyrically and musically, that makes repeated listens a delight."      Stephen Deusner -  Pitchfork

Shy Layers

  "Shy Layers is JD Walsh, a multi-media artist with a deeply intuitive understanding of pop’s mechanics. As understated as a lot of these tunes are, he’s got a keen melodic sensibility that keeps even his simplest chord changes bubbling in your head long after the glossy digital reverb has faded out. While nearly every song floats tranquilly atop a pneumatic bed of synthesizers, the album rarely scans as electronic music, per se. His rhythms combine electronic percussion with acoustic drums cloaked in warm, dry room tone, and guitars frequently take the lead."    - Philip Sherburne, Pitchfork

Spissy

  This is smooth. Like driving a Cadillac. It rolls over a speed bump and you hardly feel it. Spissy, you know where you’re going. Put it on cruise control, gliding through a pop soundscape.    Spissy is Aaron Denton and Ben Lumsdaine from Bloomington, Indiana. Their S/T debut on Jurassic Pop records was recorded at Bloomington's legendary Russian Recording.

Tunnels

  Tunnels is the solo-project of Nicholas Bindeman, whose voyages in analog synthesis feature long stretches of minute washes; the kind that, once the listener is sedated into the fray, begin to reveal finer granules and gradients. Bindeman has served stints with praised psych wanderers Eternal Tapestry and long-running weirdo free-rock enclave Jackie O Motherfucker. These and other explorations all contribute to his warbled and wondrous synth visions.

Violet Trouper

  Violet Trouper plays the reverb-soaked cinematic songs of Kristin Sidorak. Violet Trouper’s sound cracks the singer-songwriter archetype into fractured noise-folk and high plains drifter twang while evoking the epic lucid dream tones of artists like Beach House and Ennio Morricone.
