Dudley Perkins

As a vocal muse for Madlib’s creations, Dudley is unmatched; he’s earned first pick at Madlib’s prized beat collections. Just like Madvillain or Quasimoto, the Dudley/Madlib combination is a facet unto its own – on par with the most illustrious collaboration projects in Madlib’s catalog. His dynamic sophomore effort, entitled Expressions (2012 A.U.), takes an extended detour in the direction of Parliament’s Mothership Connection. The funk is strong this time around – as is the soul music that brought tears to the eyes of Dudley’s and Madlib’s aunts and uncles back in the golden days.

Hayden

Combining elements of both rock and folk music, along with disturbingly personal sentiments, dark humor, and a voice able to channel both the falsetto highs of Neil Young and the wavering raspy low tones of Leonard Cohen, Toronto's Hayden Desser has spent the last 15 years creating uniquely affecting music. The critically acclaimed musician first appeared in the early '90s armed with only his four-track tape recorder, his unexpectedly low vocal range, and an extremely detuned guitar.

Dega Breaks

Let us now deal with the facts: cracked facts, empty facts, distorted facts, blind facts, secret facts, unknown facts, guilty facts. Singer Dominic Otero spits lyrics like a man on fire, firing out songs of the city, songs of dancing through the early hours, songs of a frenzied man with too much to say and no time left to say it. Drummer Alex Sabga has been killed at least 37 times and looks none the worse for it, his stints on ‘Band of Brothers’ and ‘Alexander’ provide many a tour bus yarn.

Saboteur

Saboteur harkens back to a day in the not too distant past when lyrical intelligence and musical proficiency was not the exception in punk rock. They blend the existing facets of their other musical projects with tough guy pop punk and socio-political lyrics. The songs are loud, well crafted and instantly quotable. Influences range from Gang of Four to Rocket From the Crypt, and they're recommended if you like those bands as well as The Clash, Alkaline Trio and Queens of the Stone Age.

Dead Letter Chorus

Upon your first listen to the arousing indie-folk style of Dead Letter Chorus, you too will feel whisked away from the confines of the everyday.
