    Post Punk

    The Jason Corbett-led outfit ACTORS are standing on the shoulders of titans with their brand of the style, and could almost be referred to as "post-post-punk". In a period where we narrowcast rather than broadcast so fans and new music-seekers can firmly plant themselves in a niche, Corbett takes swings at creating sounds and production techniques that one would not usually find in a starter package of cliché plugins and samples. Backed by a stoic yet playful backing band, the frontman shows an enthusiasm while performing and recording that often isn't seen or heard in his preferred genre.         
  • The Gentry

    The Gentry

    Synth Pop

    The Gentry is an American Electronic Rock band formed in Hillsboro, Oregon in 2000. The band consists of producer and multi-instrumentalist Gino Mari, Drummer Andrew Carreon, Guitarist Jeremy Seitz and Synthesist Marcus Warner. The Gentry has released 3 singles, Demons Tongue In Chic (2003) We Want More (2004) and The Latent Stranger (2006) 2 EP's Sweet Gossip TV (2005) Sex By The Unit (2008) and the forthcoming debut album "And Now..." They have toured the west coast opening for numerous bands including Nitzer Ebb, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, The Presets, Neon Trees, Animotion, Covenant and many more.

    The Gentry sing hedonistic commentaries about the consumption of pop culture... and stuff.        
  • We are Parasols

    We are Parasols

    Dark Ambient

    We Are Parasols is an industrialgaze and darkwave band based mostly in Portland, Oregon.
    A throbbing beat. Machines on march. A guitar can be a drill or sing like an angel. A voice like a computer caught in a human throat. A whisper. A howl. Synthesizers; sometimes smooth and glassy, sometimes jagged and bloody. A walk on the shore can easily turn into an apocalyptic landscape depending on your perception.

    We Are Parasols started out as a shoegaze band that used electronic production. They released a full-length, Infrastructure, and then an minimal-ambient ep, bite_your_tongue. The idea was that Infrastructure would serve as the structural guide that they would build upon for future releases. That's not exactly how it worked out. There was a song on Infrastructure, "No Movement", about an android sex worker. That song, not the rest of the album, was what spawned the musical world of Inertia, the bands sophomore full-length.

    Inertia combined industrial, shoegaze, pop, darkwave, and sci-fi to tell a dystopian, possibly humanist, probably anti-human, story about violence, technology, politics, control, and an android feminist anti-hero known only as a synthetic sexual tasked android body.

    Now D, Jeremy and Alec are following up Inertia with No Center Line, an EP that's more about the past than the future and less consumed by anger than depression. The 4 new songs explore the hazy, maybe non-existent lines between life & death, dreams & reality.

    We don't know exactly how to describe the sound of We Are Parasols but the band lists a range of influences; Bloody Knives, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Curve, Gazelle Twin, Nin
