Jamie's Elsewhere is from Sacramento, California, and was formed after the demise of Mozart Season in 2005 and are currently signed to Victory Records. Their sound is mellower than Mozart Season was, but still incorporate keyboard/piano elements. Some have compared Jamie's Elsewhere with bands such as Chiodos because of the ambient rock sound combined with raw screams and vocal variation. However, on their latest album, They Said a Storm Was Coming, their sound has been compared to the flourishing electronic-hardcore sound which hosts bands like Of Mice & Men and Asking Alexandria.

Two artists exist under this name: (1) ZIGO, from Sevenoaks, UK What started as a crazy idea in an attic space in September 2005 quickly became something beard-strokingly serious for four teenagers with delusions of grandeur, and from the sweaty depths of boys’ bedrooms came a unique sound, a blend of their love for artists ranging from Radiohead to Robert Johnson and Focus to Foals. At that time using a cheap mic in those same bedrooms, the band took the ultimate step of committing their collective noise to tape.
Stray Ghost is Anthony Saggers, an English Composer and Sonic Artist.
He creates a mythic, highly emotive sound hybrid taking in elements of Drone, Minimalism, Shoegaze, Ambient Noise and Sound Design; balancing intricately crafted sonic textures with deeply melancholic atmospheres.
His work ranges from meditative serenity to brainpeeling noise, but always retains a sense of sadness and beauty, even at its most fierce.
Goonies Never Say Die are a quintet from the blustery holiday haven of Blackpool, who have undertaken the recording of this whole album with the help of Simon Morgan. The album itself is a stunning piece of work, well balanced, mixed and produced, it’s a sound that compliments the intricate mixture of instrumental progressive rock. The band themselves use the phrase ‘cinematic’ and that’s a reasonable description for this ten track, fifty minute adventure.
Ulrich Schnauss was born in the northern German town of Kiel in 1977. During his formative years, he came to love a wide spectrum of music, ranging from My Bloody Valentine to Tangerine Dream, from Chapterhouse to early bleep and breakbeat tracks. There was not much opportunity to see his musical heroes in Kiel, so he moved to Berlin in 1996. By that time, Ulrich was already a prolific musician in such genres as ambient and drum and bass, with a variety of pseudonyms (most notably View to the Future and Ethereal 77).
