SALES
SALES
SALES is the collaboration between long time friends Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih.



The Florida indie pop duo self-released their eponymous six-track debut EP on September 22, 2014 featuring the singles "renee", "chinese new year", "vow", and "getting it on", and were named "Ones to Watch" by Hype Machine + BBC Radio 6 Music. So far, the songs on SALES EP have over 2.5 million streams on Soundcloud and over 6 million streams on Spotify. They have since headlined tours in the US, Canada, and Europe, selling out concerts in many major cities.



Embracing a DIY ethic, their long-awaited fifteen-track debut album, SALES LP, was self-released on April 20, 2016 along with the singles "big sis", "jamz", and "ivy". The intimate album is an homage to their limitations with time, equipment, money, and space. Working on music tirelessly by moonlight between dead-end jobs, both the LP and EP were recorded from an apartment bedroom studio. The LP was produced, mixed, and mastered by SALES, and created under the duo's "as is" approach to music — each track explores new territory as they heavily rely on experimentation within their artistic process, whether it is switching lead guitarists, moving over to let someone else hold the mouse, recording vocals through Apple headphones (rather than the stellar SM7B), or inserting a 404 into a ballad.



The distinct sound the duo has created is minimal, yet meticulously crafted, emotive and incisive. SALES LP has caught the attention of Pitchfork, Pigeons & Planes, My Old Kentucky Blog, Crack in the Road, and many others. The addition of the SALES LP to their tiny repertoire is only the beginning of an ever-expanding sound, and a small step in a new approach to music: empowered by the digital listening experience, and completely independent of a record label.
Air Waves
Air Waves
Nicole first found solace in her guitar, composing escapist songs with fantastical stories and catchy choruses. Having since teamed up with Dave Ferraro and Ryan Trott, Nicole is a stage veteran. In 2006 they took on the name Air Waves. She has played with many well-known musicians such as Cat Power, Cass McCombs, the Rapture and more. A medley of folk, rock and country, Nicole serves up imagery with such unforgettable melodies that you will catch yourself, hours later, singing about.

"Nicole Schneit is an amazing songwriter. The music she writes is like a favorite blanket wrapped around you. Drummer Dave Ferraro complements her songs well. "Shine On" is my current favorite song by them." Dan Deacon
Leapling
Leapling, the brainchild of Brooklyn-based songwriter Dan Arnes, is back in Suspended Animation, the band’s sophomore full length album. The band’s follow up to last year’s Vacant Page finds the collective moving in new directions of pop brilliance. Written while the band’s line-up was transitioning, Arnes stripped down the band’s art-pop exploration and found himself immersed in a bright new power-pop sound. The record is layered, nuanced, and full of musical deviation, but the results are coherent and evocative.

Suspended Animation is direct opposition to the band’s previous work, and the Leapling you thought you knew has been forever changed. Pushing themselves into new sonic bliss, the record bursts with swift arrangements and straight-forward yet deeply layered pop songs. Joined by Alejandro Salazar Dyer (drums), the quartet slimmed down to a trio resulting in a new energy and an earnest rawness that comes from a more minimalist approach. Inspired by a wide range of artists from the power-pop of Big Star and The Kinks, the soul of Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson, the oddball genius of Ween and Jim O’Rourke, and the timelessness of the Mowtown and Philly soul sound, Leapling have pulled their influences together, with no ideas left unturned. Bold and vibrant, Suspended Animation is an immediate record, eleven eclectic power-pop hits for these ever fleeting times.
