Holy Golden
Holy Golden
Holy Golden is the multifaceted musical world of Leslie Schott and Andrew Valenti. From euphoric dream-pop to lo-fi garage rock, their sound is refreshingly dynamic while maintaining an unparalleled specificity. Holy Golden's creative process is a labyrinthian breadcrumb trail fueled by their deepest sorrows and brightest fantasies, which ultimately leads them towards their imaginative kingdom of sound.
The two met serendipitously during a full moon lunar eclipse on the island of Martha's Vineyard. They recorded their first two albums in Los Angeles and Detroit and are now recording their upcoming album from a haunted ballroom in Rhode Island.
The Soft Spots
The Soft Spots are a three piece band based out of Philadelphia PA. Armed with a drum machine, ukulele, multiple synths, guitar, bass, three part harmonies, and an array of effects pedals, The Soft Spots play a blend of shoegaze, and electronic post-punk, with an exotic twist.

Consisting of three life-long friends Shane, Corey Pace, and Truong Ta, The Soft Spots just released their first EP "Gently Down The Stream," and they are ready to wrap the world in a soft, warm, blanket of love and never stop dreaming. They also just released their first official music video for the sun-soaked single, "Getaway," and have a follow up EP "Life Is But A Dream," set for a springtime 2015 release.

Cloakz
CLOAKZ is the brainchild of Zachary Ciancaglini. The multi-instrumentalist relocated to Philadelphia in the fall of 2014 and quickly started to construct his first batch of songs. The freshmen EP "Semi-Autographic" is a quick testament to Ciancaglini's garage/pop/rock nature.

South Jersey native gone Brooklyn/Philly transplant, Zac frequents NYC with Brooklyn garage rockers Raccoon Fighter. But CLOAKZ is Ciancaglini's first attempt at stepping away from behind the drums and exposing himself as a songwriter.

Drawing influences from 90s outfits like Built To Spill, MBV, Spiritualized, blended with more modern acts like Ty Segall and The War on Drugs, Ciancaglini has a sound that is familiar yet refreshingly new. Loud & fuzzed out guitars forged with tasteful rhythmic grooves, topped with layers of noise and sprinkled with raw vocals, your CLOAKZ ice-cream cone is everything you'd want on a hot summer day.
