Dangerous Ponies
Dangerous Ponies
Dangerous Ponies is a collection of friends, family and lovers who have been playing their unique blend of 60's and 90's influenced indie power pop since early 2008. In true DIY spirit, they've self-released, produced, and recorded their debut EP and self-titled full length records as well toured the country several times over. Expect a barrage of fuzzed out riffs, guitarmonies, relentless drums, tambourines and face-paint all of which front woman and founding member, Chrissy Tashjian croons over with her emotive low alto. The Ponies are currently at work on a new record which they hope to explore new sounds and ideas while still retaining that which makes them their own.
Starlight Girls
Starlight Girls
Buzz go these busy bees of Brooklyn as they collect a pollen of sight and sound to make mescaline-laced honey for your immediate consumption. Starlight Girls live in a swirling fun house of everything you don't hate about music, drawing their influence from the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and the future. Whether it's a birthday party, Bat Mitzvah or church outing, Starlight Gir
ls are sure to bring the rubbers. As the late president Theodore Roosevelt once said, "Speak softly and carry a big stick." If Roosevelt were alive today he'd be listening to Starlight Girls and diddy-bopping in his wheelchair.

Starlight Girls recently collaborated with Xiu Xiu frontman Jamie Stewart to make a brand new 7" (out November 2012) that glows in the dark like radioactive birthday cake. A significant departure and natural progression for a band unhindered by the confines of genre, the 7" is a tasty treat to hold the hungry children over until the February 2013 release of the full-length LP. And yes, the album actually glows in the dark.
Desert Noises
Desert Noises
Desert Noises is Kyle Henderson, Tyler Osmond, Patrick Boyer, and Brennan Allen, four adventurers from Utah Valley, UT. Ask about their recent musical influences, and you'll extract a litany on the riches of Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, and Tame Impala. If it seems an unlikely trio of choices, it simply means that you haven't yet become acquainted with their propulsive, jangle-rich breed of rock 'n roll. Desert Noises make music for shouting into canyons, jumping into rivers, and getting married to the wide-open road. With a strong maturity in their songwriting, they conjure the majesty of the American pastoral landscape.
While one can pick out definite strains of blues and Americana, their often-ferocious delivery and penchant for shredding guitars elicits a powerful transcendence into psychedelic rock. This is felt most strongly in their live performances, where they harness their visceral energy in new ways each night.
Desert Noises work with an emotional palette that is sophisticated beyond their years, as front-man Kyle Henderson translates melancholy, longing, and regret into lyrical fables like a seasoned troubadour. He seems to be howling into the vastness with all of his might, romancing his hopelessness and taking comfort in open spaces.
These four young men are enchanting hearts across the country, having shared the stage with such notable contemporaries as The Head and The Heart, Local Natives, The Morning Benders, Blitzen Trapper, Miniature Tigers, and Pepper Rabbit. With their gaze set enthusiastically into the future and a new album on the way, the chronicle of Desert Noises is just beginning to unfold.
