Dead Rider (ex-US Maple)
Dead Rider (ex-US Maple)
For the past year and a half, the band formerly known as D. Rider has been busy recording, playing shows… and adding to their lineup. In 2009 they released their darkly psychedelic debut album, Mother Of Curses, while playing shows across the country. The original lineup of Todd Rittmann (vocals, guitar, harmonica, drums), Andrea Faught (synth, vocals, horns), and Noah Tabakin (saxophone, vocals, synth) saw the addition of Theo Katsaounis on drums to complete a live act that would tour the country and gain a reputation as a challenging and entertaining powerhouse.
Florida=Death
Florida=Death
Since 2005 Florida=Death have been focused on committing sound to tape with an ever increasing mountain of broken equipment.

Florida-Death has described their sound as “Post Information” , which is also the name of their upcoming Lp will be out on AMOD / Obscure Me Records spring 2014. ”This album is a complete and wonderful collection, a statement on the direction of modern art and civilization. “ reviewed by CT Indie. They are Currently listening to Mobb Deep.
Space Orphans
Space Orphans
Guitarist/Vocalist, Joe Nolan (Doctor Dark, Kimono Draggin’) and Drummer, Chris Swirski (Kimono Draggin’) formed Space Orphans after their 8 year running power trio, Kimono Draggin’, came to an abrupt end in May of 2011. After a long and weary
search for the right line-up, they recruited Kelly L’Heureux (Atrina, MT Bearington) on Bass and Frank Malec on Keyboards. Both Kelly and Frank are featured on several studio tracks from Kimono Draggin’s discography, so they are no strangers to the disjointed quirkiness of Joe and Chris’ music styles. Built upon a thick foundation of scratchy guitars, weighty drums, relentlessly shifting rhythms and rowdy animated vocals, Space Orphans are determined to evolve the sound. The new arrangement adds a blanket layer of cosmic essence, worthy of their name, while the musical structures are more focused, finely tuned and surprisingly melodic. If cornered into describing them under an umbrella genre, one might say they are a mixture of Shoegaze, Glam and Prog...but you really need to hear them for yourself in order to wrap your head around it.
Phemale
Phemale is a musical/ theatrical act currently based out of New Haven, CT. Phemale utilizes elaborate handmade costumes, masks, and stage sets to tell stories from an imaginary city called "wet hood", all accompanied by original music.
