The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver.

Sundaug is the pseudonym for Philadelphia-based composer and performer Steve Bonitatibus.. Steve became interested in percussive fingerstyle guitar early on in his playing days and even studied guitar performance during his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia. While his first two albums — Empyrean Fantasy (2013) and Nocturnality (2015) — featured music that could be likened to contemporary guitarists such as Andy McKee and Kaki King, his latest effort marks a shift towards post-rock.
"To Bloom, To Wither" is Sundaug's third, full-length album. Unlike his previous two works, which featured primarily solo acoustic numbers, this album embraces a heavier, post-rock sound. Using a wide array of eclectic instrumental textures, To Bloom, To Wither attempts to blend the soothing timbres of modern acoustica with the more blaring sounds of rock music. The album was officially released on February 24th, 2017, and is available in music stores and across streaming platforms.

Dani Lee Pearce is a transgender music producer from Portland, Oregon who has been musically active since 2011 and actively releasing since 2015. She currently handles all production of albums herself including visual design with only rare collaborator input.
Her songs' subject matter frequently concerns life within trans-ness and mental illness, frequently includes fantasy imagery and sounds, and stylistically varies between releases, approaching the composition of each album as if they were films. Her first three albums, 'Dani Lee Pearce', 'Depayse' and 'Kelvin' were instrumental albums centered around different moods, with the first album being based around the concept of recovery, illustrated by its deliberately non-linear progression from chaotic to serene.
'Notes of a Nervous Little Pixie', released in early 2016, was her first album with vocals and was recorded in harsh conditions with limited equipment and space, and is largely a document of emotional abuse received by and the mental illnesses of the artist around that time. Her newest album, 'Petrichor', released last November, adds poetry as a new influence and compositional tool to her music, reflected in the album's story and writing.
A concept album about Star-Gods, magical beings and the depiction of different forms of survival in the journeys of various characters, in addition to a variety of interpretations of this thing called Purity, both false and true, and how Disarray entangles with it.

Out on February 3, Bandit Queen is a folk fabled concept album that began with a 19th-century horse thief named Belle Starr. The title track “Bandit Queen” documents the creative transition from concision, which was central to Sarah Beatty's first album Black Gramophone, towards a supersonic mythological expansion that happens on her new album. There are all kinds of mythologies telling people who they are and who they aren’t. With this song, she wanted to invite the dark parts into the storyline and inspire listeners to be their whole, real, bodacious, outlawed selves.
"Bandit Queen really came into existence in the 19th century through the historical account of an exceptional and flawed woman. When I read about Belle Starr, the fabled bank heist mastermind turned horse thief, she grabbed my attention immediately. And from that original inspiration, I began imagining and contemplating all kinds of stories that rarely get told about women, even in the 21st century. Each of the songs on this record tells 'a different story, and as a collection, they become the spine of a whole other adventure."
