Hyperbubble

Jess takes the stage with Jem-like moves, flashy fashions, and sings superchewydelicious songs that stick to the side of your cranium like a tasty wad of Hubba Bubba. Jeff robotically rocks behind a veritable Death Star of synthetic music-making devices, performing the odd kung fu kick, and when his machines allow for it, Saturday Night Fever hand gestures.
Together, Jess and Jeff whip up a hyperkinetic stage show that you'll never forget.

Chinsky sings and writes most of the words, and they are often windows into a compelling world where self-confidence and self-doubt are perpetually vying for the upper hand. In The Mark, for example, she sings

Feathers

There is more than one artist with this name. 1. http://www.myspace.com/feathersfamily
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.
