Hooray For Earth
Hooray For Earth
Hooray for Earth is a New York City-based rock band built around the home-recordings of singer and multi-instrumentalist Noel Heroux. The group first emerged publicly as Hooray for Earth in late 2005 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The band have toured the United States extensively, including support slots for The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Surfer Blood, A Place to Bury Strangers and Architecture in Helsinki.

In July and August of 2010, Heroux spent six weeks writing and recording material for Hooray for Earth's first full-length LP, True Loves. Heroux performed, engineered and produced the album, with Ciampini, Principe and Benacquista entering the studio periodically with instrumental contributions. Several of the album's songs feature vocal contributions by New York City noise-pop group and frequent collaborators Zambri. The album was mixed by Chris Coady. True Loves was released by Dovecote Records on June 7, 2011.

London based record label Memphis Industries will release True Loves in Europe in February 2012.
Warm Ghost
Warm Ghost
Paul Duncan is currently recording and performing under the moniker Warm Ghost. It finds him taking a step beyond traditional instrumentation and one toward that of electronics, synthesizers, drum machines and processed field recordings. Warm Ghost has now evolved into a band in collaboration with Oliver Chapoy, where the sound is an intricately arranged shimmering sonic world of twisting words and melodies inside dense environments where there are elements of 80's new wave, cold wave and synth pop from Solid Space to OMD to Depeche Mode, late 70's disco, synth programming sharing ground with Autechre and AFX, and experimental textures_ reminiscent of Fennesz. The payoff is beautifully executed, lush pop songs that beg for repeat listening.

Paul has also collaborated with numerous other artists including Oren Ambarchi (SunnO))), Type Records), Joe Stickney (Bear in Heaven), Chris Bear (Grizzly Bear), RobertoLange (Helado Negro), Fred Lonberg-Holm ( Jim O'Rourke, Boxhead Ensemble), David Daniell (Rhys Chatham's Essentialist, San Agustin) and Doug McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback) among others.

Warm Ghost released it's debut EP, Claws Overhead, on the label Geographic North on May 11th, 2010. Warm Ghost has now signed with Partisan Records, where they will be releasing an expanded version of the Claws Overhead EP, with four additional songs. The band is now recording a follow-up full-length to be released in 2011.
Co La
Co La is the new exotica music of Matt Papich. People are calling it "Fresh" and "Evocative". It's New Anything Bass Music, kind of, but also part of the new Its Not Everything sound. Do you like Flow Motion by Can? Have you seen "O.C. and Stiggs"? Imagine skimming for a sweet spot and finding cool confusion - Pop Music For Dream Life. Are you too wise to live straight? Whose tears are superior? Post-Honeypot era New Reggae. Also, do you have flying dreams? Do you feel new solidarity with a global potential? Looney Tunes. Be real with a wall of sound, and slip a finger in your ear delicately. Feel successful at night. Playing conceptual footsy with predictive text and the future says "Co La?"
