Pick a Piper

A collective featuring Brad Weber of Caribou, Angus Fraser of Tenth of May, Dan Roberts ex-Winter Equinox and Clint Scrivener. "A fusion of styles can be a tough thing to pull off effectively, yet Pick A Piper manages to push the realm of both splendor and mayhem like some sonic rite of passage. A combination of neo-psychedelic dream-pop and tribal-fueled double-drumming explodes into a torrent of live-energy where an Afro-Brazilian celebration meets pop-loving hearts."
- Lonely Vagabond

Kristina Train

Hearing Kristina Train for the first time is nothing less than a revelation: her sunny, easygoing demeanor and youthful good looks belie the heart-wrenching power of her voice. Train’s Blue Note debut, Spilt Milk, is urbane and soulful, lush in its arrangements but intimate in its emotions, built on a foundation of classic and deeply felt southern soul. The title track unfolds with an almost cinematic grandeur, its string-laden chorus swelling with widescreen melancholy.
