My Body
My Body
My Body cooks up a unique blend of R&B, pop and skittering electronics for a collaged sound that is all their own. Originally from Oregon, members Jordan Bagnall and Darren Bridenbeck made the leap to New York nearly three years ago and haven't looked back. They've since won Nylon Magazine's national Project Aloft Star contest and have shared stages with Haim, Elliphant and Typhoon. Full of attitude, defiance and vulnerability, My Body's songs wind their way through both darkness and jubilation.

- Nilina Mason Campbell

AFTER MONTHS OF RELEASING SINGLES AND BUILDING A THRIVING NEW YORK FOLLOWING, 'SIX WIVES' IS MY BODY'S FIRST FULLY REALIZED EP. THESE MULTILAYERED, DANCEABLE SONGS DOUBLE AS HEART-FELT AND INTROSPECTIVE VERSE—VERSE THAT, LIKE ALL GREAT POP MUSIC, REVEALS A UNIVERSAL, EMOTIONAL LANDSCAPE. "I'VE BEEN A BABY SINCE THE DAY I WAS BORN" INDEED.

The EP was released 5/5/15 via Bug Hunt, kid-sister label to Portland, Oregon's own Tender Loving Empire.
CRYSTAL GHOST
Organ based dance music: Crystal Ghost is the solo Project of Elliott Baker (formerly CC/NN). Plinky mallet melodies accompanied by relaxing vocals and a borderline "surf" guitar sound. Crystal Ghost has new album on the way and his only released materiel is a single called "Cherry Blossoms". Impose Magazine says the single, "points to some exciting new intrinsic, sonic, and psychic directions."
QQQ
QQQ
Philly Electronic.
No Sir E
No Sir E
NO SIR E is the 6'8" soft-spoken electronic producer, performing artist, and monome loop technician bellowing beats from the sleepy state of Delaware. He's been moving and shaking basements, bars, art galleries and warehouses across the country sharing stages with Falcons, Ikey Owens (of Mars Volta), KOAN Sound, Two Fresh and LA's favorite Dandyist, Daedelus.

Similarly to Daedelus, he nimbly triggers swirls of hip-hop influenced elements both familiar and unfamiliar into a swarming multi-genre tidal-wave of heavy beats and haunting melodies. His productions feature glitched-out field samples, 8 bit harmonies, and household percussion stylishly arranged to satisfaction.

His forthcoming studio EP "Pocketed" is set to be released summer 2014 under creative label The Leap, whose diverse roster includes monome creators tehn and Kelli Cain.
