Alex Vans

Alex's broad-but-never-bombastic voice is the first thing that strikes the ear, calling to mind Jeff Twee...dy, or maybe even the kind of vocalist Conor Oberst might grow up into (if Oberst cared to grow up). Just beneath the spare, plaintive vocals lies Alex's sunny Hendrix and SRV-inspired guitar riffs, creating a bittersweet pastiche that evokes Beck's "Sea Change" period. Not gratuitously, he seamlessly adds in some phrasing nods to the Beatles and The Arcade Fire that serve to add to the tension between traditional and modern sounds.

These Animals

New York City indie-pop quartet, These Animals, create a mix of dreamy pop and dance-able rock and roll. The band met while attending art school and began writing together in the early months of 2010. With keen pop sensibilities, their sixties-inspired harmonies sit comfortably on top of shoe-gaze guitar textures and toe-tapping rhythms. Cultivated from influences of friends and the city around them, there is something strangely familiar and reminiscent about These Animals’ music. Perhaps it’s nostalgia for a memory you wish you had.

The Business People

We were born from the Goddess of the heavens, quadruplets. As we grew, our mother knew all too well that our gift should be used for more than our own amusement. With that, we were cast into the Piedmont of North Carolina to once again find each other; to create the music we were destined to share with the world.
