Cosmetics
Cosmetics
Cosmetics are a two piece from Vancouver, BC. Their music is made for dancing, and with feeling and attention to the details. Their trip is sleek and synthetic meets human emotion. Cosmic glamour meets do-it-yourself. Voice and a rhythm. Frosty tropics and hazy nites. Love on the beat. Nic M and Aja Emma formed Cosmetics in Summer 2008, the first band for both of them. In 2009 they put together the Tuff Trax 8-track studio in their home where they work on sound and visuals every day. Cosmetics is their lifestyle.
Plastic Flowers
Psychobuildings
Psychobuildings
Blending jam based punk aesthetics with a laser focus on beat and melody, Psychobuildings recalls an era of music, when pop, rock, and disco began fusing together to stir up new club sensations.

Frontman, Peter LaBier, complements percussive vocal deliveries with angular and spasmodic dance moves. Despite the clean pop structure of the songs, the end result manages to sound both abstract and loose. Synths buzz and swirl around the beat, courtesy of Peter Schuette. Juan Pieczanski plays additional percussion, synthesizers, and handles the production duties. The group's first single is available on All Hands Electric and Cass Club.
Heavenly Beat
Heavenly Beat
Texas native John Pena began writing and performing under the Heavenly Beat guise in the latter part of 2009. After a handful of unfulfilling and embarrassing live shows, John put performing on the back burner and began working on building a stronger set of songs. John emerged from his bedroom after months of leisurely paced recording with a couple of tracks that would become his first release on Captured Tracks in the form of the 7 inch single “Suday”. Being influenced by nothing in particular has payed off as many have had trouble pinning the sound down as anything other than “immaculately arranged and paced” and “attractive music for attractive people”. Thus again proving that just because you’ve heard a song by The Cure or Neil Young doesn’t mean you have to ape it shamelessly to gain wide acceptance. Shortly after the release of “Suday” Heavenly Beat released the A side “Faithless” for their forthcoming 2nd single, igniting not only the blog world but the interest of the uninformed few who might have missed “Suday”. By paying homage to no one but himself, John Pena’s band has become one to watch in 2012.
