Cynthia Angelica “Grace”

"An unknown fact about 'Grace' is that it started as a breakup song, which is hard to believe when you listen to the final track. Early in the creative process, I was inspired to rewrite the lyrics, and the song in its current form was born - almost as if it were waiting to find itself. No shade on breakup songs (I have some of my own), but I cannot imagine what would have been missed if I had not been willing to let the song lead and trust the process." Cynthia Angelica

B of Briz – “What Would Buffy Do?”

'What Would Buffy Do?' is about how understanding the contours of someone else's life, understanding their struggle to live a good life, can be really useful, even if that person is fictional! It's particularly about how these 'exemplars' are important when the stories of people in your group- in this case women - are not told very widely. B of Briz

DIVINE DECADENCE – “PURPLE DRESS”

"Purple Dress is about a mysterious dark woman, a kind of chameleon. She doesn't care what people say or think. She waits for the right moment to set herself free and to become who she really is, whatever it costs. The rhythm of this track reminds one of a tango in order to underline the fierce sensuality and the strength of the character. Also, purple is one of my favorite color so that's why it came first to my mind when I wrote this song." - Tatiana / Divine Decadence

Parallel – Parallel (Original EP)

Parallel’s self-titled EP is quite an impressive debut release, and a compellingly engaging listen throughout; at the same time that the songs on the EP convey the wistful feelings of isolation that listeners will surely relate to, their powerfully dreamy atmospheres also bring about a relaxing sense of tranquility. Highly recommended. 

Toothbrush – “Kaleidoscope”

What makes this track unique is its originality and an almost obscene vibe of alcohol, cigarettes, and cynicism. With drunken steps, the track moves forward with a rock and roll vibe and a low end that makes the ground shake. Its attitude can be compared to a full pub at 3am where everybody is loosened up and trying to get away with everything they can.

Vanderwolf “When The Fire Grows Cold”/”Extinction!”

“I had produced a tribute to Wyatt in NYC many years ago. Fred Frith, Peter Blegvad, Hugh Hopper and many others appeared. Robert gave it his official nod of support. When I moved to London to produce my first Meltdown Festival, Robert seemed the obvious choice to curate it, and from that, a lovely friendship evolved. Of course, it was daunting asking him to sing something I’d written. I know he gets a lot of proposals of which he turns down nearly all. But happily, he said yes. He said he thought he could sing this set of lyrics— and commented about the possibility of singing about his father. It was a huge relief to me.’’ Vanderwolf
