Beast Patrol
Beast Patrol
It all started with lighting water on fire. Vanessa Bley (lead vox, guitar), Robert Granata (guitar) and Anthony Marchesi (bass) met in 2011 while performing at a revolutionary anti-fracking (Pedal Power NYC) concert powered by bicycles or "natural ass." In early 2012, Vanessa Bley released her solo EP, a lush and vibrant alt-rock record which led to the band's formation as Beast Patrol. In October 2012 they released the EP "Fierce & Grateful," which received significant buzz leading to Rolling Stone's Band to Watch and a slot at Lollapalooza. After a year of extensive performing and the addition of Jacob Read-Harber on drums last summer, the four-piece has settled in and crafted their second record. Unarm Yourself Spring 2014.
Clementine & The Galaxy
Clementine & The Galaxy
Nominated for Best New Artist for 2011 by Deli Magazine, Clementine and the Galaxy is a collaboration between acclaimed vocalist Julie Hardy and producer/guitarist Mike MacAllister. With their unique brand of electro pop, you'll be able to hear influences by artists such as Miike Snow, Chairlift, Florence & the Machine and James Blake.

Lead vocalist Julie Hardy is well on her way to becoming one of most in-demand studio recording artists & performers in New York City. In May 2011, she made her national television debut on Saturday Night Live where she performed live with rising star Ellie Goulding and this past August she sang on David Letterman with indie rock star St. Vincent. She has received rave reviews from the New York Times, Time Out New York, Downbeat and Jazz Times.

Producer Mike MacAllister, when not generating C&G's phat beats, works as a composer for films and TV commercials. His tracks have been featured in ads for XBox, Nike, Levis, and many others. His recent film scores for "Freakonomics: The Movie" and "The Spirt of Laxmi" were premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Mike also plays guitar for other NYC up and comers Wishes and Thieves, Young Unknowns, and the Awakening Orchestra.
Dynasty Electric
Dynasty Electric
Dynasty Electric is a New York art rock band mining the area between experimental music, rock, and pop. The group was formed in 2002 by
multi-instrumentalist Seth Misterka, (whose varied career has seen him working with everyone from experimentalists Anthony Braxton, William
Parker, and Jonathan Zorn to indie rockers Hot Chip, Shy Child, Aarktica, and The Fever) and singer Jennifer DeVeau (who cut her teeth
touring the UK as a teenager with her all-girl Beatle-cover band Girl). Misterka was on date when he met DeVeau at an East Village bar
– his date was late, so he struck up a conversation with DeVeau who was tending the bar. They had an instant repoire, and Misterka asked
DeVeau to join his new band Dynasty.

Working in various incarnations over the years the group has toured across America, Canada, and Japan, and Taiwan, appeared on MTV2, Much
Music, Democracy Now! and New York television program New York Noise, been the focus of photo spreads in Zoo Magazine and Italian Vogue,
released 7”s on DRR Records and Pop Hop, 2 EPs on Newsonic Records, and the critically acclaimed full-length album “Black Box” on
Mysterious Media in 2004. In 2008 the group toured the US, culminating in a performance at the Burning Man Festival.

In 2009, Dynasty Electric released a new EP "Burning", along with a new video "Closer to Contact" produced by award winning production
company Superfad. The group played the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX, and is performing regularly in New York.

Incorporating a wide palette of instruments from theremin, synthesizer, and samplers, to saxophone, electric guitar, and
electronics the group’s sound is edgy, yet accessible, danceable, but experimental, evoking the spirit of great New York art-pop bands like
Blondie, The Talking Heads, Suicide, and The Velvet Underground. Indeed, this great underground New York act is a band whose time has
come. With their accessible sound, and their electrifying live show Dynasty Electric are poised for major crossover success.
Teletextile is the creation of multi-instrumentalist (Harp, Piano, Violin, Guitar) and vocalist Pamela Martinez. A follow up to a previous release Care Package, the Reflector EP was recorded with her past band members Caitlin Gray (Bass, Guitar, Vocals) and Luke Scheiders (Drums, Bells), as well as friends Brian Hamilton (Cymbals Eat Guitars), Aynsley Powel (Tigercity, St. Vincent), Elliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost), and Dave Sheinkopf (The Subjects). Producer Al Carlson (Games, Oneohtrix Point Never, St. Vincent) helped work the boards as they recorded through most of the first half of 2010. The dreamy soundscapes alternate between delicate plucking of the harp strings to a adorned voluptuous sound, all making the bed for Martinez' boundless vocals. Martinez's current touring group is made of Alex Topornycky (Guitar), Tim Cronin (Bass), and Allan Mednard (Drums).
A San Antonio, TX native, Martinez began her love affair with the musical arts at a young age. Family sing alongs alternated between her mother and grandmother's love of Ettta James, and her father's affection for George Harrison. When her punk rock aunt would baby sit, the two would watch The Labyrinth and Hairspray on repeat, fostering her affection for the stranger more festooned side of life, art, and music. After attending University in Boston, in 2007 she moved to New York where she worked with the group So Percussion. Through that experience she met the likes of Matmos, Paul Lansky, Tristen Perich, Zeena Parkins, Lesley Flanigan and others. All composers that used both electronics and acoustic instruments in their music, the relationships she formed in those early days in the city remain an influence in the present.
Reflector represents the latest step in Teletextile's unfolding journey towards self-discovery, and the listener is encouraged to come along for the ride. Martinez' sites one of her main motivations of creating and playing music as finding a way to replicate the experience of dreaming. "You should want to close your eyes when listening to music," she says, "it should be your own story, your own vision."
