Named after the Jean-Luc Godard film, Los-Angeles based garage pop outfit Détective was initially conceived as a studio project by James Greer, former member of Guided By Voices, and Guylaine Vivarat, a long-time member of the LA music scene (Useless Keys, Tennis System). Since forming in March 2012, Détective has released two EPs, Very Fallen World and Basket of Masks, and a full length album, However Strange, which was released in late August on cassette by Burger Records to coincide with a national tour opening for Guided By Voices in September.

Talkative was born in a noise dream. First existing in Eugene they were originally a performance-art noise duo. Focusing their time on loops, effects, and delay bent vocals, the shows were mentally and aurally intensive. As time shifted forward new forms of performance were explored and they have found a comfortable setup with effects soaked guitars, drums, and keyboards. The sound of Talkative starts in a flurry of digital noise that eventually finds itself ripping through guitar riffs before shapeshifting into rolling drums and sequencers. They've released two full length albums "Strange Luxuries" and "Light Years" which both illustrate a dynamic quality unique to Talkative. "Light Years" shows Talkative's ability to bath in reverb and rebirth itself in melody with the help of guitar, bass, and drums. Their current live set up includes live visuals, booming drums and bass, wild vocals and ripping guitars.
