Looking (and often sounding) as though they've been sent directly from central casting, the psych-folk octet Feathers originate from the same fertile New England climates that generated the wayfaring likes of Tower Recordings and the MV & EE Medicine Show. The arrival of their debut album on Devendra Banhart and Andy Cabic's Gnomonsong label has not gone unheralded...
1) Loop was a South London band founded in 1986 by Robert Hampson and his then wife, Bex. Loop's sound was characterized by strong krautrock and avant-garde influences in addition to the minimalist mayhem of The Stooges and MC5. Their songs were almost uniformly harsh and repetitive, with indecipherable vocals buried under layers of noisy guitar riffs and metronomic drumming. Some of the records featured covers of Suicide, The Pop Group and Can as bonus tracks.

Brian Bartholomew Vocals/Guitars
Oliver Seibert Vocals/Guitars/Effects
Their sound being influenced by listining to old Spacemen 3 and Brian jonestown massacre Vinyls among tons and tons of shoegazing influences.

Robedoor is the duo of Alex: slime, knives and distortion, and Notnotfun label head honcho Britt on fire, howls and cloaks... Hmmm... but what does all that mean, sonically? Well, precisely what you might imagine. A blackened drone drenched world of slime and knives and fire, dense clouds of distorted howls, a thick cloak of fuzz and buzz wrapped around the proceedings like a thick, well, cloak! Actually this is a lot prettier than you might imagine. That is, if your idea of pretty includes tons of low end and a world of slow motion doomdrone.
Lancaster based psychedelic drone-rock band i the vein of Spacemen 3, Can, Neu!, The Fall etc.
THE TAMBORINES is a fuzz rock band, based in London UK.
The Tamborines came to being when core members Lulu Grave Keyboards, Percussion) and Henrique Laurindo (Guitar, Vocals)started recording some songs on a 4 track in their own bedroom in West London. They have been rapidly gaining acclaim throughout London with their synthesizer heavy, tripped out live shows. Raised on a diet of underground indie, Bergman movies and distorted guitars, The Tamborines combine their daydreaming sound with an art aesthetic that blends West Coast Pyschedelia with the noir of The Velvet Underground.
Thisquietarmy is the experimental guitar-based project of Eric Quach from Montreal, Quebec, Canada - active since 2005. Revolving around improvised drone music, he takes his sonic experimentations further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk, shoegaze, krautrock, post-rock, black metal and doom metal to them. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive and engaging dreamscapes. His live performances are mostly presented as a real-time score to hypnotic ethereal visuals, which he creates himself for each performance.
