  • Floral

    Floral

    Math Rock

    Floral is a melodic two piece math rock band from the San Francisco bay area.  Founded in 2014 by guitarist Nate Sherman and drummer Ty Mayer, the band has carved a strong following via three releases and countless tours in both the US and UK.  Eight years after their first release, Floral has proved their mainstay worth in the melodic instrumental music scene.   

    Sherman’s flowery melodic riffs complimented by Mayer’s fluent and punctuated drumming create an easily distinguishable sound.  Technical yet emotive, Floral’s music effortlessly blends the familiar with the fresh and new.  The band’s 2020 LP elevated their sound to even higher levels with Mayer occasionally pulling double duties on guitar and drums simultaneously.   

    Floral’s live performances somehow manage to capture the same raw emotion and energy of their albums, furiously tearing through complicated passages without ever making them seem so. The band has honed the craft of serving the music before serving any need for virtuosity; but at a closer glance it is apparent that both qualities are present and fluidly blended together. Floral’s innovative sound and seamless delivery has proven itself over time as the band has only grown a larger following. Their music brings a breath of fresh air to anyone willing to listen, and is not something to be passed on.

    Elaine The Singer

    Alternative

    In 2020, Elaine the Singer released a feral self-titled debut into the wild. Combining a no-wave styled stream of riffs with haunting aggression and borderline antagonistic melodic sense, it’s almost hard to believe that 2/3 of the members of this band are actually in Floral. The trio is rounded out by the addition of Kevin Murphy, an acclaimed jazz drummer and improviser based in NYC. 

  • Massa Nera

    Massa Nera

    Alternative

    “...one of the most innovative and forward thinking bands in the increasingly chasmic void between emo, punk, and metal,” with “some of the most chaotic and technical instrumental performances currently on display in punk,” (Brooklyn Vegan) New Jersey’s Massa Nera has honed an explosive, multi-faceted sound that prioritizes experimentation and ingenuity without sacrificing emotional directness or raw energy. The four members: Aeryn Santillan, Allen Nuñez, Chris Rodriguez, and Mark Boulanger, equally contribute vocals, lyrics, and musical ideas to create a sound world that seamlessly weaves between genre boundaries and politically complex issues.
  • Good Looking Friends

    Good Looking Friends

    Indie Rock

    Good Looking Friends is an ongoing collaboration between three doctors and their wacky, melancholic friend. GLF occupies the venn diagram overlap of Math Rock, Post Rock, and "Atmoemo" (see 5th Wave Emo Categorization Meme) while talking about science fiction. 
     

    "Good Looking Friends' 'The Light of the Well' Is Subtly Extraordinary Emo" - Exclaim 
     

    “Sparse percussion and glimmering guitar licks prelude delightful sonic chaos” ‐ Culture Collide 

    "While they may not be 'Good Looking,' they do have that 'I Don't Know What!'" - Audiofuzz 

    "Good Looking Friends are defined first and foremost by their lyrical complexity, and Fischer can’t help but talk about You Won’t Die in almost literary terms." - Consequence of Sound
