Enemies

Enemies were born from a burgeoning, artist led, Kilcoole DIY scene that has spawned and nurtured talents like Heathers, Adebisi Shank, Kidd Blunt and new-media mogul Dylan Haskins.
They released their debut EP Alpha Waves on Wexford based independent label Popular Records and toured nationwide extensively. The EP was picked up in Japan by independent label Macchu Piccu and the band went to Japan to support the release of this record, playing four sold out shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nagoya.

Yowie

Yowie, a dual-guitar and drums trio from St. Louis, have been stunning audiences with their incomparable barrage of sonic kung fu. They accelerate the progressive-rock rhythmic sensibilities of Ruins and Magma and mutate them with the shrieker side of Big Black and Slayer. The band incorporates many variations in time signature, tempo, and tuning, to create a virtual audio maze, but no matter how complex things get, their compositions remain cohesive and compelling. After releasing their debut album Cryptooology on Skin Graft, they lost a guitarist.

Mons

Mat created Mons as an outlet for his lifelong love of sound. In particular, the sounds of fuzz boxes, drums, drum machines, vintage synths as well as the cheapest Casios, theremins, vocoders and randomly captured conversations comprise but a few of the tools in his arsenal. Over the course of 3 albums, including Stimulus Frequency For The Localization of Sound in Space, released in 2004, a wide array of sounds, textures and tones have resulted from his chaotic yet pure approach. Mons continues to be exclusively a studio recording endeavor from inside the confines of his Washington, D.

The group layers gentle guitar chords, warm synthesizers, and down-tempo beats with Krautrock influences for multi-textured grooves that would make perfect company for Tortoise.
