The Dan Ryan is a psych/folk project based in Austin, TX. Named after the Chicago South Side interstate and forest preserve, the band performs layered and melodic tunes about attempting to transcend our mundane existence. Guidance, the band's second LP, was released in July 2017.
Desert Liminal is a genre-evasive minimalist duo centered by Sarah Jane Quillin's (Heavy Dreams, Pantyhose) spectral vocal melodies layered over low-end vintage synth, ambient samples and driving drum grooves. Thoughtful lyrical tone and instrumental texture combine to achieve a dark, atmospheric synergy focused on liminal, threshold states — grief, dissociation, retrospection and the experience of nonlinear time. Static Thick was released in October 2017.
Tobacco City is Chris Coleslaw (Coleslaw, Tragic Trip, Curls) and Lexi Goddard (Spike and the Sweet Spots). The folk country due seek to be as much Neil & Linda as they are Gram & Emmylou, if you can dig it. Druggy, jokey, melancholic songs for people with nowhere else to go.
