Hallowed Bells (Philly)
Electronic songs-without-words and abstract soundscapes by Philadelphia-based Darian Scatton and Alison Stout.
Collaged together are a variety of quirky electronic loops and experimental sound bits – the songs seamlessly sample all sorts of bird chirps and frog croaks and distant conversation – giving a distinct eerie atmosphere to this bedroom pop creation.
– Mary Kate McGrath, Boston Hassle
LIANA’s FIRE is all over the musical map. There’s electronics frying in the sun. Pretty acoustic guitars happening. Effects laden vocals lost in the clouds. And beats and synths sometimes forced into the service of some kind of electro-pop, but at other times allowed to wander freely. This is some free spirited shit, crawling with a genre-less flamboyance that the artist herself proclaims proudly.
– Dan Shea, Boston Hassle
Folie a Deux (Baltimore)
Experimental musical poetry.
The Humminbird (Chicago)
“To those outside of the Chicago orbit, one that has produced neo-psychedelic juggernauts the Plastic Crimewave Sound and, more recently, the loner-bellow of Circuit des Yeux, Muyassar Kurdi might be a completely new name. A member of the community that has fed the work of the aforementioned, and performing with the moniker The Humminbird, her reverb-drenched stew of voice, autoharp, organ, tanpura, samples, and electronics should open up unknown vistas. Whatever the term “psychedelic” means, a benchmark may exist, and The Humminbird’s minimal chants, pleading, and beguiling in a fuzzed-out haze, clearly put this music well within the psych realm.”
