Crumb is Lila Ramani (guitar, vocals), Brian Aronow (synth, keys), Jesse Brotter (bass), Jonathan Gilad (drums). The group originally came together in 2016 to develop and record a collection of songs Lila had written throughout college, a recording project that became their first self-titled Crumb EP. Locket, their second EP, was created while the four were split between New York and Boston and released in June 2017. They are currently based in NYC and in the midst of recording their first full-length album.
Montreal’s Corridor take familiar elements but assemble and scramble them in a way you may not have heard before. There’s a twin-guitar interplay that recalls the late-’70s mutant new wave of XTC, The dB’s and The Feelies, with a sense of melody that shows a love of ‘60s psychedelia and sunshine pop. Putting a hometown twist on things, Corridor sing entirely en français. Don’t let that put you off though: the creativity and abundance of killer tunes found on their acid-baked 2017 album Supermercado breaks through the language barrier. Corridor are even better live, with a real joie de rock that knows no borders — guitars slash, harmonies soar, bodies a constant blur.
Camp Howard is an experimental indie-rock quartet based in Richmond, VA fronted by songwriters Nic Perea and Wes Parker. Bilingual member Nic Perea, who is originally from Mexico, contributes songs in Spanish that shape the band's sound with a Latin influence. Matt Benson and Brian Larson, both graduates of the jazz program at VCU, hold the group close together with their undeniable technical talents. The band released its first record in 2016 with the help of local friends Citrus City Records and Crystal Pistol Records. The group began to tour up and down the east coast in support of their first release. A year later, the band released a more polished EP titled “Juice EP” through Egghunt Records. The lead single and title track off the EP, “Juice”, made its way into a Consequence of Sound article and quickly became Camp Howard’s most popular track. The band’s efforts were rewarded in the summer of 2018 with a support tour opening for Stone Temple Pilots. Camp Howard has continued to tour and grow with an emphasis on tight musicianship and honest self-expression.
