Telepathe
Telepathe
After a couple of years of playing in the experimental, rock band, Wikkid, Busy Gangnes and Melissa Livaudais decided they had grown tired of live “rock” guitars and drums. Both members quit the band and formed Telepathe. Telepathe initially started out as effected, improvisational ‘shoe gazey’ style music which they recorded as “Farewell Forest”, an EP released on the Brooklyn label The Social Registry. After a long tour behind the release of the EP, Busy and Melissa moved into a warehouse in Bushwick, Brooklyn together, and built a home studio, and live rehearsal space. The two bonded over their love for Hip Hop music, UK garage, dubstep, and all that was rhythmically syncopated. They also espoused their distaste for indie rock bands, and 4 on the floor new disco. Both members come from musical backgrounds and are multi instrumentalists, so Busy and Melissa decided to become not only a “band” but “Producers.” In 2006 Telepathe released the single “Sinister Militia,” on The Social Registry label with several remixes, including one by Livaudais’ best friend, Tyler Pope of !!!, and LCD Soundsystem.

By 2008, the band had been playing all over New York City and Brooklyn in warehouses, Art galleries and had even performed at “the new museum.” Telepathe were then contacted by a new fan, Producer Dave Sitek (Tv On the Radio), who offered them a whole month in the studio to make a full length album under his production. Telepathe brought him over an album’s worth of bedroom-made demos that they had been working on for over a year. In early 2009 Telepathe released their critically acclaimed album “Dance Mother.” For the next 2 years the band found themselves supporting acts such as Julian Casablancas and Vampire Weekend, as well as headlining their own world tour, and within that time releasing a handful of remixes for other bands. This year Telepathe return with their 2nd full-length album, “Destroyer.” The new record was written and recorded in LA (Busy’s hometown) and was inspired by California Sci-Fi. The band co-produced it with Lewis Pesacov and it was mixed by Matty Green. The album will be released on Dave Sitek’s new label, Federal Prism.
Feathers
Feathers
FEATHERS comes after a sequence of bands for lead singer Anastasia Dimou. (Her previous band Cruel Black Dove who released two EP's drew high praise from the likes of NME, The Fader and The New York Post.) Moving to Austin from NY in 2011 represented a fresh start. With a unfettered self-possession, FEATHERS' sound represents Dimou with a room of her own.

Calling on her friends for help, the 4-5-piece live band includes Galexy Gehring (Ringo Deathstarr), Destiny Montague (Shock Cinema/Midnight Masses), Courtney Voss (The Vomettes) and Kathleen Carmichael.

Currently two tracks are available as free downloads on the band's website: "Land of the Innocent" and a remix from Maya Postepski (Austra, Trust) of "Dream Song."
ERAAS
ERAAS
From 1999-2011, Robert Toher led the atmospheric post-rock band Apse, but by 2010, he was growing frustrated with that group’s direction and organization. He started working on a separate project, ERAAS, with Apse guitarist Austin Stawiarz – Toher is drawn to the word “eras,” he says (it had also been the title of a limited-edition Apse album). Toher and Stawiarz holed up in an old house in Northampton, Massachusetts, and gradually refined their new sound: dark, repetitive, richly-textured grooves, incorporating dissonant found sounds and unnerving reverberations. Before long, ERAAS became the duo’s main musical outlet.

After relocating to Brooklyn, they completed their self-titled debut album in 2011, although it’s taken more than a year to see the light of day. It’s a splendidly unnerving recording, moving from eerie chamber music (“Black House”) to spidery rock songs (“Ghost”) to a pair of spectral dance-rock tracks, “At Heart” and “Briar Path,” that come off like a blurrier, weirder version of the kind of skeletal funk ESG was playing in the early ’80s. Toher’s echoing high tenor appears here and there on ERAAS, although it’s often hard to tell exactly what he’s singing – “voice as instrument is important to me,” he says. The only attempt to transcribe his lyrics that’s appeared thus far is so riddled with gaps and guesses that it looks like translated fragments of lost literature, which seems appropriate.
