Bellows
Bellows
Bellows is the bedroom recording project of songwriter and producer Oliver Kalb. The sound of Bellows is sensory and delicate, subtle and quiet but erupting with frantic wobbling drums, large orchestral sections and bursts of noise that push the conventions of pop and folk. Started in late 2010 in a college dorm room, Bellows has since blossomed from solo recording experiment into a large-scale rock band, employing the help of friends to bring Kalb's intimate home recordings to life on stage. Bellows' second record "Blue Breath" was recorded over the course of three years, in five bedrooms across the country, and was released in 2014 on Dead Labour Records. The record was recorded by layering dozens of strange sounds over would-be humble folk songs, the result being a soaring pop record that treads the line between minuscule and gigantic. "Blue Breath" was named one of Bob Boilen of NPR's All Songs Considered's top 20 records of 2014. Bellows' latest record "Fist & Palm" pushes Kalb's sound further into the realm of electronics, experimenting with samples and aggressive sequenced drums. Stereogum named two tracks from "Fist & Palm" on their Top 100 Songs of 2016 list.
Peaer
Peaer
Performing with a rotating lineup of musicians, Peaer is an object set in motion, staying in motion. Songwriter Peter Katz (formerly of Fugue, Poverty Hollow, Suns) has an understanding of dynamics, amplitude, and melody as they interact as physical bodies, pushing, pulling, peaking and falling. Consequently, Peaer produces songs about communication as a force on a linguistic and kinetic level communication between individuals, between yourself and other self, between your heart and your brain.
