HALF GRINGA is the mind of Izzy Olive, manifested as a glass of milk with maybe a little bit of blood in it. She writes songs about multicultural identity and domestic disputes set to rowdy rural rock music. Joining her are guitarist Sam Cantor, bassist Andres Fonseca, trumpet player Ivan Pyzow, and drummer Sean Saville. On her forthcoming LP, Gruñona, she's excited to continue fleshing out what began as warm, sleepy basement music to something that encourages her delusions of grandeur. Her favorite dreams are the ones where she's on the lam and yelling in Spanish.
MINOR MOON is a songwriting project of Sam Cantor, a musician based in Chicago, IL. MINOR MOON’s upcoming EP, What Our Enemies Know, demonstrates both discipline and experimentation while exploring themes of alienation, ghosts, lightness and affirmation. MINOR MOON also features Nathan Bojko on drums, Michael Downing on bass, and Colin Drozdoff on keyboards.
Pop music from Chicago, THE JELLIES drift along softly.
