Caddywhompus
Caddywhompus
Chris Rehm and Sean Hart, the New Orleans via Houston duo, have been playing music together since middle school and have been crafting avant-pop tunes under the binomen of Caddywhompus since 2008. Their live show is a tightly crafted barrage of dynamic energy, utilizing dreamy dips and explosive crescendos executed with math rock like precision. On stage, the duo faces each other in front of a teetering wall of amps presenting their binary dialogue to the audience. Over the years, the band has released 4 albums, extensively toured the United States and has performed internationally in Europe, Brazil and Canada. In the last 6 months, Caddywhompus has opened for Thee Oh Sees, Parquet Courts and Dungen as well as finalized the production of their newest LP. The band will be releasing the LP in 2017 around plays at SXSW & BUKU Fest.
Dinowalrus
Dinowalrus
DINOWALRUS is a synth-rock band from Brooklyn, NY comprised of Pete Feigenbaum, sound designer/synth and bass wizard Liam Andrew, and veteran drummer Max Tucker.

Pete started the band in 2008. They started 2009 strong with a 7" release that was distributed by Impose and RVNG, plus another 7" release on the Australian label EXO.

In January 2010, DINOWALRUS put out their shape shifting, eclectic and erudite debut, %, on Kanine Records (Surfer Blood, Chairlift, Grizzly Bear). The band toured the east coast and California with the likes of Titus Andronicus, Fang Island, Aa, Signals (ex-mae shi), and Tempo no Tempo.

Later in 2010, Pete revamped the lineup and songwriting approach, and began working with Liam Andrew (synthesizers, bass). The two have been friends since college, where they both took a course entitled "the experimental traditional in pop music", receiving course credit for listening to favorites such as PiL, Brian Eno, Throbbing Gristle and Kraftwerk.

After lineup changes, DINOWALRUS then turned towards a more pop-oriented songwriting approach that drew heavily on the 1980s beats of Madchester plus other groovin' minimal synth, new wave, dark wave, and post punk angles, while retaining their psychedelic and krautock backbone. They released their sophomore album Best Behavior on Old Flame Records+Heist or Hit (Dead Confederate, Cloud Nothings, Millionyoung) in 2012.
Sky White Tiger
Sky White Tiger
Inspired by works of astrological mythology and the blurred lines between fantasy and reality, five-piece psych-pop band SKY WHITE TIGER formed in Brooklyn in 2009. After a decade of writing, recording, and performing independently with artists as far reaching as Radiohead, David Bowie, Sufjan Stevens, and The Polyphonic Spree, the five life-long brethren decided to take matters into their own paws. After a batch of supporting US tour dates with Rufus Wainwright and a few months in the studio with Brooklyn-based Producer Bryce Goggin, SKY WHITE TIGER has recently completed their debut LP - ELECTRA - to be released in 2012. Whether performing on a concert stage, art gallery, or planetarium dome, SKY WHITE TIGER fuses sound, costume and light design, transforming any space into the Tiger Realm of the endless imagination.
