The Qwarks – “Nice While It Lasted”

In grim times, the Qwarks search out moments of joy, riding on a wave of psychedelic joie de vivre with the backdrop of a barren wasteland of fragmented selfies and melting database columns. In the desert by a campfire they met the Reverend Zebadiah Hawkwind III who attempted to exorcise their demons through a heavy dose of 5/4 psyche based skronk.

Lump200 – “Kryptomarch”

"Kryptomarch" is the first single release of their upcoming album "Isles of You", together with the social-audio web-app islesofyou. It is a futuristic mix between electronica and organic elements, which include a heavily processed bass clarinet and vibraphone. It is very difficult to identify which is which as it is all very carefully (and heavily) shaped.

The Goons – “DCxPC Live Vol. 5: The Goons Live At The Black Cat”

"During the first week of sales, all purchasers will be entered into a raffle to win the corresponding VML Live album. For example, this is DCxPC Live Vol. 5, so we will raffle off VML Live Vol. 5 Presents Sloppy Seconds. The album also includes a reversible cover, so fans can choose whether to display the class VML style or the band photo cover style."

Indoor Friends – “Is It All Melting?”

Kat Delitto (Lead guitar), Krista Marie Setera (ukulele, vocals), Ben Bonadies (Bass) and Matt Wilson (Drums) came together musically to create songs that are both technically challenging and full of emotion. Lyrics are deeply personal, spanning from romantic disasters to emotional struggles and an inside rage that seems to only dissipate thanks to the high-gained riffs and superb drum playing.

What Strange Beasts – “Cat’s Paw”

"We built this album around a space theme to reflect on feelings of distance, isolation, loss, introspection, and ultimately the relief of interpersonal connection. We wrote that which we felt while hunkered down in our own 'space ships' through the harrowing trials, and the few stolen moments of joy, of a global pandemic. As a lyric notes: "Every hour's a gift: The signals, the noise, the sorrows and joys." - What Strange Beasts

mUmbo – “Rollin’ Over”

"After so much darkness, fear and deep uncertainty in recent times, and despite the fact that the world is in a state of awful political megalomania and gunshot rhetoric, we just wanted to say something hopeful, something connective, something of light in the darkness. We hope we have done that both sonically and lyrically." mUmbo
