Fever High - Avec You - 2019

Blackbook praised the video, saying it “is a pastiche of sensual but thought-provoking images, surely begging to be analyzed for historical artistic references,” and that the song “grooves along with impossibly cool aplomb (shades of early Bananarama).”

Mindy Gledhill - Boo Hoo! - 2018

"Rabbit Hole" was the first track that we happily released in late 2018. The song is uniquely spirited- at once, urgent and ethereal- a perfect musical articulation of a personal fall and rise. Consistent with Mindy’s own struggles, “Rabbit Hole” is dynamically and intimately voiced with the sort of passion, eloquence and wisdom only harnessed by someone who’s been in and out of an existential journey- a baptism by fire, a battle to claim one’s true self. 


Weeknight - "Outside the Pale" - 2018

"Weeknight is a dark-synth [band] out of New York City that play music that's brooding, sensual, and infectious... The [band] manages to extract the elements of 80s goth and new-wave, and re-appropriate them in a context that isn't reliant on nostalgia." -Noisey

Elyssa Vulpes - Front Line - 2019

If you only listen to one steam punk-influenced professional hypnotherapist and singer-songwriter in 2019, make it Elyssa Vulpes! Having cured her own anxieties (including stage fright) through a combination of her day job as a hypnotherapist and through writing and performing music, she hopes to inspire others to release their “scorpion energy” – confronting their fears by essentially shedding this negative skin from themselves.

For Esme - To Love - 2019

"To Love is a visual journey exploring gaze and seeking balance between all of its contradictions. The film objectifies female cliches in order to question their validity with playfulness and sarcasm. To Love intends to create refreshing and powerful narratives within societal normalizations of femininity. For Esmé epitomizes the reclaiming of the gaze, and the video illustrates Mar Meredith’s evolution from object of male desire to principal subject of her own narrative.” 

Advance Base - "Answering Machine" - 2019

"Ashworth's style has always been prismatic, slipping through time and space to craft enduring and dreamlike portraits, this time of loves lived and lost."

"Charmingly homespun downer-pop."

"Ashworth's songs never cease to be entertaining and authentic."

"Bizarrely heartwarming...full of bleakly romantic imagery"

Miss Grit - Talk Talk - 2019

"The New York-based polymath's new release is an essential listen."

"Incoming EP 'Talk Talk' is their boldest step yet, matching astute songwriting to daring sonic flourishes, recalling everyone from Sharon van Etten to LCD Soundsystem in the process."

"Sohn's clear vocal drives deceptively gentle synth-backed ditties into surges of heavier guitars reminiscent of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs."
-  Line Of Best Fit

"Sohn’s quiet-storm vox against cataclysmic synthesizers creates a soundscape that is both emotionally raw and dynamically energizing, a perfect blend of introspection and catharsis."
- The Deli NYC

"Miss Grit is a thrilling new project that takes its cues from a bevy of indie heavy-hitters and turns it all into something all the more exciting. On her new single 'Talk Talk,' which also happens to be the title track of her upcoming debut EP, Sohn keys into both a sound and state of mind that will make her one to watch in the new year."
- The 405

A Fragile Tomorrow - Circling- 2019

"A Fragile Tomorrow have built a reputation around power-pop anthems."

"Everyone needs to know this band...and I mean EVERYONE."

"One of South Carolina's leading indie lights, period."

"Scruffy, scratchy indie rock with a dash of psychedelic sweetener"

"Fuzzy guitars, groovy bass lines and grungy yet ethereal vocal harmonies"

EVI VINE - SABBATH feat. Simon Gallup - 2019

Promo image

"I love the deep textures and 'other-worldly' spaces - made from guitar loops and percussion treatments. Evi's vocals are beautiful. Haunting. Sailing across this huge 'universe'. I think it is very original" – Phill Brown, audio engineer (Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Robert Plant, Throwing Muses)
