Autodrone formed in early 2002, based on a mutual love of dream pop and early 90's Brit Rock. Seemlessly melding the sonic dynamics of noise and pop with throbbing bass lines, jagged, angular synths, searing dark atmospheric guitars and urgently violent banshee vocals, Autodrone have no problem reaching out from the stage to the crowd, grabbing you by the throat, and screaming in your face, even when in reality sometimes they are only whispering.
Their shows are an intense emotional surge for the band and audience alike. Their self-released EPs have quickly developed the attention of the UK and American Press garnering universally favorable reviews, while easily selling out of print.
Highspire is a shoegaze/dreampop band originally from Philadelphia. Wanting a fresh start and name from their previous band Intro to India, Alex White and EJ Hagen founded Highspire in 1999 as the vehicle to continue their songwriting partnership. Their debut album “Your Everything” was released in 2003 (Europe only, Alison Records) and 2004 (rest of world, Clairecords). “Your Everything” with its shoegaze, britpop and trip hop influences was very well received and garnered many reviews comparing elements of their sound to Ride, The Charlatans, Slowdive, Bowery Electric, and Massive Attack.
Heaven is a collaboration from New Yorkers Matt Sumrow (The Comas, Dean and Britta), Mikey Jones (The Big Sleep, Swervedriver), and Ryan Lee Dunlap (Fan-Tan). They have put their own stamp on psychedelia and new wave, giving a nod to the artists they have respected and played with, while also creating something modern and unique. Heaven's debut LP will be out July 2013 on Goodnight Records
