Ovid's Withering

Ovid's Withering is a musical unit that has been refined into their own identity through seasons of staying on their own two feet, and never settling for less than their best. With a firm DIY ethic that always has kept them at the most interpersonal level with their lively and interactive fanbase, they crafted a brand that keeps listeners involved in their universe even between musical releases. There's always activity behind the curtains of the Ovid's Withering camp, but the curtains are transparent enough for the faithful followers to never feel forgotten in the midst of the toiling songcraft. With a tight, intense live show, and a focus on clever songwriting over easily-forgotten showboating, they have won over many an audience. Such audiences have included crowds belonging to Periphery, Fleshgod Apocalypse, SepticFlesh, Kataklysm, Enfold Darkness, The Absence, Behemoth, Abiotic, Obscura, Born of Osiris, Six Feet Under, and The Black Dahlia Murder. With recently winning the Tampa chapter of Sumerian's Headbang For The Highway battle of the bands, plus increasing widespread interest and hype for their recently released EP titled 'The Cloud Gatherer', they can effortlessly prove themselves to be an engaging and entertaining musical force on both live and recorded platforms of delivery. While others dream, Ovid's Withering forges grandiose visions into tangible art. 2013 will see them moving forward on a larger scale than ever before, and the journey will be a regrettable one to ignore.

Lorelei

Lorelei began in 1990 as a 5-piece in Washington, DC in the heyday of the city's indie scene, but quickly stripped down to 3 members in 1992 after one single. Lorelei released several recordings on Slumberland Records, including the 1994 LP, "Everyone Must Touch the Stove", plus a few things for other labels. Over the years, Lorelei often played live with our Slumberland labelmates - the Ropers, Small Factory, Whorl, Velocity Girl, Honeybunch, Jane Pow, the Swirlies, and the Lily's - and with the likes of the Wedding Present, Slowdive, Bailter Space, Unrest, Laika, Boyracer, and Labradford. Following the release of "Everyone Must Touch the Stove" and after playing together for almost 6 years, Lorelei members decided to move to different coasts and disband in 1996. From there, Lorelei members went off to pursue other projects including LU, Chessie, Camping, and RDK. Following their hiatus as a band, Lorelei began working together again in 2003, culminating in Lorelei's first release in eight years, the "Informed By The Future" 12" on Matt's Textilesounds imprint. In 2006, Lorelei's members found themselves back in Washington, DC and began playing and writing together again. Lorelei returned for their first show in 10 years on October 25th, 2006 and has played occasionally since. Lorelei headed into the studio in December of 2007 to begin work on a series of new recordings for release in September, 2012 as "Enterprising Sidewalks" on Slumberland Records.

In a period where the majority of bands seem to limit themselves to one sound or genre, Sirens stands out as a group which is nearly impossible to label. The band, which consists of guitarists Jordan Caylor and Jordan Thralls, bassist Logan Pollaro, vocalist and mixing engineer Joey Fenoglio, and electronic composer and percussionist Zakk Huff, seamlessly weave between a unique blend of sounds. Rooted in progressive metal, drum and bass, and ambient soundscape, Sirens is heavy, agressive, syncopated, digital, self-reflective, atmospheric, and experimental. Between crushingly heavy dubstep, thunderous breakbeat, and intricate metal, Sirens will take their listeners on an unforgettable journey through a world of sound and expression, driven by rich, classical harmony, and jarring rhythms.
