WET
WET
Wet is recognized for their deeply-hued emotional pop well documented by the New York Times, The Guardian, NPR and others. Rolling Stone included them in their 10 New Artists Defining The Sound Of Now this past spring, noting the band has "set themselves apart with music that combines the elegant ache of Nineties R&B with the raw honesty of indie pop…" Crediting Wet's drama-wringing, confessional lyrical style, Don't You was embraced by critics and music fans alike with the album's opening track, "It's All in Vain," soaring to #1 on Hype Machine and cracking the upper tier of the Spotify Viral 50 chart. The band's previous U.S. tour established them as a breakthrough live act, which continued with a slew of summer festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Firefly and Outside Lands. Wet is comprised of the enigmatic Kelly Zutrau and multi-instrumentalists Joe Valle and Marty Sulkow.
Blonder
Blonder
New York City's Constantine Anastasakis presents the debut EP from his musical project, Blonder, set for a late September 2016 release. Recorded between New York and LA, "EP1" utilizes sonic and lyrical dualities as means of passively graphing the highs and "lows of a void and voracious romance. Romantic narratives of mainstay indie rock are relit in a light self-determined "coolness" while instrumentation from 80s New Wave is employed against Constantine's self-assured voice to create a sense of personal and sonic nostalgia.

Recorded with Kevin Augunas (Cold War Kids, Edward Sharpe) at the former Sound City Studios, now Fairfax Recording, "EP1" features writing and production from friends of Constantine's including Waylon Rector (Kitten), Caleb Shreve (Phantogram, Tegan and Sara), Brian Lee (Fifth Harmony, KYGO) and Aaron Maine (Porches). "EP1" is due out in early 2017.

"Synth-pop with real post-punk leanings...[Lean is]half-euphoria and half longing for something past, with impeccable production." - Clash Magazine
