Sharkmuffin
Sharkmuffin
Sharkmuffin's name fits. The Brooklyn all female 3-piece outfit crafts adorable pop music with jagged, garage-aged fangs. With lyrical subjects including incest, mythical bestiality, and homicidal heroin using femebots, Thiessen's gutsy vocals jump between gentle moans to rough, forceful screams. They melt into Janet LaBelle's crashing cymbals and Natalie Kirch's thudding bass in a harmonious union. Admiration for 90s alternative girl group-esquehooks are paired with heavy 1970s inspired guitar riffs to create the raw sound of these punk rocking debutants. With these guys, it's no secret the end goal is fun. Sharkmuffin doesn't really give a fuck, they just want to have a good time.

Bizarre Sharks
Bizarre Sharks
Accidental DIY supergroup Bizarre Sharks released it's first EP back in December. Its four songs, including high-energy opener 'Test' and slacker love anthem 'Tremendous,' were all written and recorded in a single manic day full of good vibes and pizza. The band's first time playing together, it was a day full of surprises, including just how charming the vocal interplay of singers Jake Backer and Laura Gwynn proved to be. Encouraged by the results of the EP they've decided to continue playing together, performing and writing songs in a manner that stays true to their ad hoc, act now, think later style as much as possible.

Bizarre Sharks features members of Brooklyn DIY scene staples The Royal They (guitarist Darrell Dumas), Sirs&Madams (vocalist Gwynn), El Silver Cabs (guitarist/vocalist Backer, drummer Mike Seidenfeld), and Lost Kingdoms (bassist/producer Terry Edelman).
DJ Jessica Louise Dye (High Waisted)
DJ Jessica Louise Dye (High Waisted)
High Waisted is a NYC based surf band with pop sensibilities and an affliction for rock and roll.

Lo-fi fuzzy bass, reverb drenched guitars and radiant harmonies mesh to create the melodies of your wave-crashed daydreams.

Fronted by Jessica Louise Dye, her quirky spaghetti western aesthetic re-imagined from the nose of a surfboard makes High Waisted feel like the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino film.
