Stars of the Lid

Stars of the Lid are a band specializing in -based music. They list among their influences minimalist and electronic composers such as Arvo Pärt, Zbigniew Preisner, Gavin Bryars, and Henryk Górecki, as well as Talk Talk (both bands have tracks named "Taphead"), post-rock artists Labradford, and ambient innovator Brian Eno. Their music largely consists of beatless soundscapes, composed of droning, effects-treated guitars along with piano, strings, and horns; volume swells and feedback fill the gap of rhythmic instruments, providing dynamic movement within the songs.

Charlie Don't Surf

There has been more than one artist with the name Charlie Don't Surf. The name is taken from something said by the character Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore, played by Robert Duvall, in the 1979 movie 'Apocalypse Now'. The most recent rendition of Charlie Don't Surf is a 3 piece instrumental band from Muncie, Indiana, who in 2005 released the album 'kvalitetsstøy', a kind of post-rock, math rock venture with hypnotic cool repetitive interludes interspaced with parts of complex and jarring convolutedness, and occasional diversions into rocking out and making a bit of a noise.

Happy Particles

The Happy Particles began after the release of the second Text Adventure record 'I Believe in Lassies' in late 2007/early 2008, in the west end of Glasgow. Once that was done and dusted, Steven was free to devote his time into putting some of the ideas that he had built up over the last 2 years (under the usual bedroom introspection type circumstances) into properly arranged songs. In doing so he called upon some friends to help him out.

Cheval Sombre

Each of Cheval Sombre's songs is a sort of pacemaker. Lyrics crawl out of the vocalist's mouth forming a resounding anthem that doesn't march with climactic tension, but vibrates throughout the track with the unconscious nature of a heartbeat, softening the murmurs into a subtle rhythm.
