Parisian trio Cheveu create sounds in the heat of drugged out vibes and post-punk charisma. The band also pulls the sentiments of experimental executions and juxtapositions, exploiting the limitations of lo-fi in a way that encapsulates chaos into a fragment of order.
ADULT. is an electro band from Detroit, Michigan that integrates vocals with drum machines, analog synths and electronic/punk elements.

POLYSICS is a Japanese new wave/synth pop/punk/rock band, hailing from Tokyo. The band started in 1997, but got their big break in 1998 at a concert in Tokyo. They create high energy music, fusing conventional guitar music, with synthesized and computer generated sound to create a unique mixture of punk and electro-pop. Their song lyrics often consist of Japanese, English, or just plain gibberish. The band has been noted for their extremely energetic live performances and their wild gimmicky outfits.
ADULT. is from Detroit. Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller began their unpredictable path with one now totally obscure 12". The Modern Romantics 12" was recorded under the name PLASMA Co. and released on the now defunct German label Electrecord in 1998. Realizing the effeteness of the moniker PLASMA Co. (but still drawn to the period at the end of the name), they quickly changed to the more fitting title of ADULT.

Sean South and cheap dirty synth
Led Er Est emerged from a series of jam sessions that core members Shawn O’Sullivan and Sam De La Rosa started having in early 2007, using bass guitar, some cheap drum machines, and synths. They were inspired to record music largely by ’70s synth prog, and ’80s lo-fi electronic and industrial music. They recorded a number of songs at friend Will Burnett’s studio that fall. Their first officially released track was on the Wierd Records compilation, Analogue Electronic Music Vol II. Owen Hutchinson joined the band for their first live show at the Wierd party that December.
