There is more than one artist with this name. 1.
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...

L'ocelle Mare

L'ocelle Mare consists solely of Thomas Bonvalet, of Cheval de Frise fame.
His compositions as L'ocelle Mare are just as, if not more, complicated than they were during the Cheval de Frise years. The main difference is the obvious lack of song structure here.
This is not free-composition, but tediously constructed, felt-out melodies and rhythms that are played flawlessly during live performances. Every single noise and click that you hear is completely intended.

Hunz is a three-piece electronic pop band, spearheaded by Brisbane-based electronic musician and producer, Hans Van Vliet. With a background in music programming and motion design, Hans pulls his notes out of a binary soup of ones and zeroes, hand-crafting synth patches and beats from scratch. The result is a mix of pulsating, glitchy electronics and ethereal vocals that hint at the sinister, but succumb to the pleasure of pop hooks instead.
