New Yorker RICHARD SPITZER goes by the stage name LOVESKILLS, a one-man producer/songwriter who crafts textures of therapeutic synth, low frequency bass, and a balance of melodic heart speak. SPITZER released his debut 12” EP Multiplicity in February of this past year on No Shame and it’s a dance-friendly sexy-time party so you’re not gonna want to miss it live. Chicago locals GOLDEN BIRTHDAY have been eerily quiet since their 2008 debut full-length, Infinite Leagues, and people were beginning to wonder what had become of this atmospheric and new wave collective. Turns out, they were undergoing personnel changes and exploring uncharted sonic terrain, steadily working to build a dense body of new material. Founder and frontman RYAN SULLIVAN has worked with his band to create what can be described as "pop in slow motion", and June 2013 marks their triumphant return to recorded sound with Blue Ocean, out via Rainbow Body Records.
