Additional Information

The Black Atlantic is the Groningen (The Netherlands) based acoustic pop band formed around singer and songwriter Geert van der Velde, former frontman for American hardcore group Shai Hulud. The Black Atlantic released their debut album “Reverence for Fallen Trees” digitally for free (worldwide) on August 21, 2009. It has since been downloaded close to 100.000 times.

Two years after releasing their debut album Dutch folk-rockers The Black Atlantic have released their new EP ‘Darkling, I Listen’. The five songs offer a wide array of elements and in fluences, from Phil Spector-esque orchestrated chamber pop to 60’s Motown soul sensibilities. It also takes informed cues from current indie epitomes such as Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, and Bon Iver. 
 
"The Great American Canyon Band is a Baltimore indie-folk act featuring husband-and-wife duo Paul and Krystal Jean Masson. The pair's first single, "Tumbleweed," is a lovely, dreamy piece of countrified rock, destined for road trips. The rest of the self-titled EP came out in May, and an additional track, "Young Lady," was released on Sept. 5.

The duo's harmony-rich sound is alternately mellow, sad, wistful, romantic and sweeping. The Great American Canyon Band has been compared to The Duchess & The Duke and Lost in the Trees. WXPN's The Key describes the pair's EP as "a gorgeous collection of hypnotic songs that draws on [a] heady mix of dream pop, acousticana and psychedelia." - NPR World Cafe

The Waltz is the moniker for Brian Carley's (penfold, the moirai) solo music. The name comes from the fact that early on, most of the music was being written in the time signatures of 3/4 or 6/8. He has branched out a bit since then, but not too much. What started as rough demos in 1999 very slowly blossomed into a full-time project as recent as December of 2008. Brian finally found ample time to donate to this often-overlooked yet beloved little escape. He is currently recording a full-length follow up to "boxes", his 6 song tour EP as well as playing locally as often as possible.
