    The Cave Singers

    Alternative Rock

    Given the rising popularity of meditative, folky indie acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy, rootsy folk trio was probably the least surprising move Derek Fudesco could have made. The former bassist and founding member of the successful indie rock group Pretty Girls Make Graves picked up an acoustic guitar and formed the Cave Singers following PGMG’s demise in January 2007, teaming up with vocalist Pete Quirk and drummer Marty Lund.
     
    The Cave Singers released two albums on both Matador and Jagjaguwar Records. Following these releases, The Cave Singers began work on their fifth album. Rather than working with a record company, they opted to coordinate the project themselves and financed the recording through a crowdfunding campaign. The campaign raised 116 percent of the group’s goal, and the album, Banshee, was released in February 2016.

    Avant-Garde

    somesurprises is the psych-dream-folk-pop project of Natasha El-Sergany, who sings and plays guitar, synth, and drum machine (pre-sets). somesurprises started as a solo project in Charlottesville, Virginia in mid-2013, and was at first a Soundcloud page used for collecting the best or first takes of obsessive late-night spontaneous phone recordings of original and cover songs. The project draws inspiration from emotionally-resonant movie scores, lo-fi/shoegaze legends, and decades of heartbroken country, soul, pop, and folk music.

    A move to Seattle in late 2013 introduced Natasha to kindhearted and talented folks in the underground experimental music community who counterintuitively gave her repeated opportunities to perform songs on the same bills as more abstract/"noise" musicians whose adventurous and egoless work consequently had a deep impact on her songwriting. 

    Throughout much of 2014 and 2015, she collaborated, performed, and recorded with harsh noise aficionado Samuel Henry (Plastic Boner Band) and gifted guitarist Dustin Williams (Mind Beams, ex-Stalebirth). In 2016 Natasha began performing with Josh Medina (Medina/Walsh), who adds warm atmospheric tones and effects on electric guitar. Later that year Nico Sophiea was added on drums and Andrew Scott Young on bass.

    Natasha released a solo cassette called "Voice Memos" in 2016 via Happy Accident Records and teamed up with Josh to record a new album called "Serious Dreams", which will be released by Eiderdown Records in 2017.
