"On the verge of exploding outward"
- Nikki Belfiglio of BODEGA
"THE memory of SXSW 2018 for me."
- Cool Dad Music
Self-described psychedelic art punks, Gustaf makes music that indulges the crude comedy of our subconscious. Drawing inspiration from the grooves of ESG, the dopey drawl of Jonathan Richman, and the ego of Alan Vega, the female-fronted quintet puts forth a live show in which the music is slick but the attitude is surly, androgynous, and infectiously danceable.
The project marks the debut solo endeavor of musician and multimedia artist Lydia Gammill who has spent the last decade in New York touring and recording with projects such as Total Slacker, ONWE, and The Wants. In less than a year, the group has exploded onto the scene recently headlining Bumblefest in West Palm Beach with a North American Tour, SXSW, and supporting slots for Lithics, The Mystery Lights, and BODEGA, under their belts.
Pecas is the nom de canción of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sandy Davis. She was born in Madrid, where pecas means freckles. Currently based in Brooklyn, her music resides in a space where the lights are low, hot, and red, but the music is slow and easy. Vulnerable and curious, Pecas is a shy disco diva, whose melodies emerge as a whisper, peeking through the piano’s pixels, the hovering organ, with chords like mirages behind which it is impossible for her to hide.
Recorded in her bedroom with producer John Morisi and inspired by Japanese disco, Pecas released her debut EP, After Dark, via Broken Circles. The single, “Matchstick”, premiered on The Line of Best Fit, who called Pecas’ sound “both nostalgic and refreshingly modern” in the way it “infuses flavours from jazz, funk, indie, pop, and sparkling soul.”
Currently, Pecas is writing the follow up to After Dark and performing in and around New York. Pecas will embark on a Southwestern US tour in March 2019.
