Attic Abasement
Attic Abasement
Slow-rolling bummer rock with plucky guitars and moments for pause. Mike Rheinheimer has been writing cleverly melancholic music under the moniker Attic Abasement for nearly a decade. Transforming over time from solo lofi tapes into a full piece band, Attic Abasement retains the intimacy and honesty in Rheinheimer’s voice and words; existential anxieties played out with a sense of humor.
Justin Roeland and Nightswimmers
Justin Roeland and Nightswimmers
Justin Roeland is an American singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist previously known for his work as guitarist/keyboardist with the Long Beach, Ca psych-rock band, The Fling and chamber pop ensemble -Greater California. Roeland released his first solo album, "Blind Spots" in 2014. The album was recorded partly in a textile warehouse in Signal Hill, Ca and finished in an off grid cabin in the Finger Lakes.

"...an album filled with the kind of classic songwriting that always has a way of marking those milestone moments in the lives of the audience. Listen to Blind Spots all the way through and you’re bound to seal your feelings about wherever you are in your life right now in a kind of musical amber. The music is that rich and evocative." -Saby Reyes-Kulkarni (Paste, Pitchfork, Feedback Deficiency).

2016's Between The Lakes, Roeland's second release, "bridges the cracks between genres as if they were the proverbial lakes mentioned in the title of his new album. There is an overall beauty that runs throughout "Between The Lakes," with the opening track thoughtfully assailing ears while sounding like The Byrds when Gramm Parsons briefly got his mitts on them." -Frank Deblase (City Newspaper)

Roeland's third LP-Doomed To Bloom, was largely written and recorded in a Greek Revival Chapel in Trumansburg , N.Y during a month long residency there in 2016. Doomed To Bloom continues a trend for Roeland of isolationism and solitude. The enormity of that solitude is captured throughout this record in songs like- Seasons Of Love, with it's unruly, rhythmic breadth and thoughtful musings on the stages or seasons of a relationship. The song Dream House, has light, cascading guitars, feathery synths and takes an unexpected pause midway to reflect on the overwhelming anxiety of loving someone or something beyond comprehension-"To The Moon, but not back, anxious love is a hard attack".

Justin Roeland and Nightswimmers is Ryan Vanderhoof (Akron Family), Chris Ploss (Palleon, Obody) Alyssa Duerksen (Lady D and The Shadow Spirits) Matt Succucciamorano, Eric Harvey (Spoon, Hamilton Leithauser) and Scott Nelson.
Chef Fol
Chef Fol
Squashed ego driven hip hop, future bass, and trap music drowned in a sea of fuzz and warmth.
Chris Corsano
Chris Corsano
Chris Corsano is a drummer who has been at the vanguards of free improvisation, avant-rock, and noise musics since the late 1990's.Constantly seeking to expand his sound way beyond conventional notions of what drums can and can't do, Corsano attacks his kit with everything from cello strings stretched across his snare drum to contact microphones on hi-hats to a slew of extended techniques of his own creation.
