Snowden
Snowden
Taking its name from the novel Catch 22, indie rock band Snowden includes Chandler Rentz (drums), Corinne Lee (bass, keyboard), David Payne (guitar), and Jordan Jeffares (vocals, guitar, keyboard). Snowden had its start in 2004 in Jeffares' bedroom during his senior year in college. The demo recordings impressed Jeffares' brother, who introduced him to like-minded musicians. Now a quartet, the band found local success with a self-released EP, which encouraged them to travel to New York for shows. The effort paid off, and Snowden found themselves opening for groups such as the Unicorns, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Arcade Fire. The band's debut LP, Anti-Anti was released on Jade Tree in August 2006 and features production by Erik Wofford (Explosions in the Sky, My Morning Jacket).
Warm Ghost
Warm Ghost
Paul Duncan is currently recording and performing under the moniker Warm Ghost. It finds him taking a step beyond traditional instrumentation and one toward that of electronics, synthesizers, drum machines and processed field recordings. Warm Ghost has now evolved into a band in collaboration with Oliver Chapoy, where the sound is an intricately arranged shimmering sonic world of twisting words and melodies inside dense environments where there are elements of 80's new wave, cold wave and synth pop from Solid Space to OMD to Depeche Mode, late 70's disco, synth programming sharing ground with Autechre and AFX, and experimental textures_ reminiscent of Fennesz. The payoff is beautifully executed, lush pop songs that beg for repeat listening.

Paul has also collaborated with numerous other artists including Oren Ambarchi (SunnO))), Type Records), Joe Stickney (Bear in Heaven), Chris Bear (Grizzly Bear), RobertoLange (Helado Negro), Fred Lonberg-Holm ( Jim O'Rourke, Boxhead Ensemble), David Daniell (Rhys Chatham's Essentialist, San Agustin) and Doug McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback) among others.

Warm Ghost released it's debut EP, Claws Overhead, on the label Geographic North on May 11th, 2010. Warm Ghost has now signed with Partisan Records, where they will be releasing an expanded version of the Claws Overhead EP, with four additional songs. The band is now recording a follow-up full-length to be released in 2011.
Visuals
VISUALS is songwriter/producer Andrew Fox. After the release of the self-titled, DARKSIDE produced debut EP, on OTHER PEOPLE records, Fox left Brooklyn for Berlin and began to hone a hybrid, melodic, hypnotic live sound, refining the set across Europe. VISUALS returns to NYC after an intense winter of song writing in Berlin.
