Sea Yarns is an unconventional pop/post rock project from Providence, RI.
Deifying easy classification, Sea Yarns' latest EP Nativity Spells is parts all electronic dance, post rock, surf, shoegaze, hip hop, footwork, drone, and pop without truly belonging to any of them. Drippy, bending, and airy surf-gaze guitars wash over drum machines arranged to skitter, attack, pulse, and pound their way through this 5 track EP to create a fertile soundscape for the now.
This cosmic journey began life springing from the fretboard of bassist Drew Cranford, whose layered chords, agile arpeggios, and fluid tapping anchors the musical foundation of the project. Starting as a solo artist, Drew's writing focuses on complex riffs and technically demanding performances which produce a unique style of bass playing that challenges the understanding of the role of the instrument itself. Eventually Drew crossed paths with fellow Georgia Tech student Jeff Harrison. An experienced drummer, and somewhat pursuer of good tunes, Jeff instantly connected with Drew’s melodic-centric bass riffs and thus a rhythmic foundation was laid. Over time the duo honed material together, practicing for hours in the basement of a house in Atlanta until eventually the two approached Steve Bledsoe to lead the charge on guitar. A past bandmate and friend of Jeff's, Steve would bring a unique sound to the group, blending classic guitar styles with a more modern, melody focused, vibe.
The three soon coalesced into a well-oiled musical unit, gigging locally around the Atlanta music scene, all the while working out the kinks for the songs that would become the self-published 'Peripheral Sounds' EP. Recorded in whatever spare time the group could afford, the EP served as an early sonic blueprint for the future iteration of Cosmic Carpool. Regrettably, college graduation and subsequent geographic separation became too much to gainfully surmount, and the group amicably parted ways for an indefinite period of time. The members pursued various other musical endeavors, with Jeff and Steve eventually touring together again in a different group. The three remained close friends, however, and would occasionally jam as Cosmic Carpool for a bedroom audience.
Years later, with the disbanding of his touring act, Jeff began experimenting with synthesizers and DAWs developing a deeper understanding of not only music itself, but the underlying technology behind the sounds. Eager to pursue this new passion, Jeff set off to reunite with Cranford and Bledsoe, reinventing Cosmic Carpool into a genre-bending, electronic 'space' rock trio. The group, reinvigorated with fresh songs from Drew's catalog and the sonic possibilities of modern synthesizers, began an intense rehearsal schedule to flesh out what would become 'Horizon'. With Jeff at the console and taking nearly a full year and a half to complete, the resulting LP is a testament to perseverance, and the payoff is huge. The entire record is a joy to listen to from start to finish, and while the songs certainly stand on their own right, the true power of ‘Horizon’ is best appreciated as an entire package.
Transporting listeners through time and space by way of intricate arrangements, bruisingly heavy riffs, and soaring electronic melodies, Cosmic Carpool is a sonic force quite unlike anything you've heard before. Hailing from Atlanta, GA, the genre-bending trio crafts a unique amalgam of rock, electronic, metal, ambient, and dance into something that is far greater than the sum of the parts. Every note is intentional, every passage designed for maximum feeling. Written by Drew Cranford (bass) and Produced by Jeff Harrison (drums/keys/synths), with Performances by Steve Bledsoe (guitar/mandolin), Cosmic Carpool’s debut full length LP 'Horizon' is an ethereal journey whose cadence is perfectly timed from beginning to end.

Non m’importa della luna is a chilean band that’s influenced by the sounds of modern japanese pop, post-rock, trip-hop and dream pop. On the 15th of september, 2017, they released their first LP, El Fin Del Mundo y Antes Del Amanecer -name taken from the manga Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae by the renowned mangaka Inio Asano-. This first LP it’s an ambitious display of ambiental sugar-coated sounds, with trap influenced beats and energetic melodies, that swing between calm and eerie, with a heavy pop sensibility that at the same time is uncompromising, without fearing taking a more experimental side sometimes. This release solidifies the identity of the band, striving to be one of the most original band on the chilean scene. 8 tracks -one being a new versión of the song Ponón, from their first EP- and 4 remixes (by Tenzon, Orquesta Pandroginia, RISHO and The Holydrug Couple) make this album an incredible journey through a immense variety of sounds and instruments. The album was composed by the band, with the production and mixing done by Andrés Martinez and RISHO, the master also done by the later, except track 9, mixed and mastered by The Holydrug Couple.

Airships on the Water is an instrumental post rock band from Fayetteville, AR, USA, formed by multi-instrumentalist Russel Hensley. Hensley, who plays drums for the math rock band Take Shapes, started the project as a way to experiment with and expand on a backlog of keyboard riffs and drum parts he had written.
Drawing inspiration from the infectious hooks of El Ten Eleven, the emotional power of Explosions in the Sky, and the rhythmic complexity of Japanese post rockers Toe, Hensley started writing and overdubbing new parts to flesh out the sound of his existing arrangements. He carefully layered beautiful keyboard melodies, bass guitar hooks, intricate drum patterns, and rich synth textures onto these skeletal arrangements, shaping them into catchy instrumental post rock songs. Bit by bit, a chilled out sound with subtle math rock influences emerged, and Beneath a Thousand Branches was born.
GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset.
