Bellows is the bedroom recording project of songwriter and producer Oliver Kalb. The sound of Bellows is sensory and delicate, subtle and quiet but erupting with frantic wobbling drums, large orchestral sections and bursts of noise that push the conventions of pop and folk. Started in late 2010 in a college dorm room, Bellows has since blossomed from solo recording experiment into a large-scale rock band, employing the help of The Epoch art collective to bring Kalb's intimate home recordings to life on stage. Bellows' latest record "Blue Breath" was recorded over the course of three years, in five bedrooms across the country, and was released in 2014 on Dead Labour Records. The record was recorded by layering dozens of strange sounds over would-be humble folk songs, the result being a soaring pop record that treads the line between minuscule and gigantic. "Blue Breath" was named one of Bob Boilen of NPR's All Songs Considered's favorite records of 2014.

Soft Fangs

Happy Little Clouds

Happy Little Clouds is a Boston-based indie rock band whose songs will stick with you rain or shine. The band’s unfiltered, heartfelt lyrics are layered over bluesy vocals, a vintage rock sound, and catchy melodies. On their debut album, "Shift," premiering July 9, 2016 and produced, recorded and mixed by Portland, ME legend Jonathan Wyman, Happy Little Clouds captures the emotional rollercoaster of discovering love and lust while on the journey for inner truth and that brief nostalgic moment that strikes just before everything changes forever. Hop in and join them for the ride, and don’t touch the radio dial.
