Killed By A Word
Killed By A Word is just one of a number of pseudonyms — see also Anagramist and A Textura From Her Heaven — under which Hassen Daoues, a Tunisian, releases work;
Active Child is the electronic-meets-choral project of musician Pat Grossi. Growing up in New Jersey, Grossi sang with the Philadelphia Boys Choir and was influenced by the rhythms of ‘80s alternative dance bands like New Order. Combining these elements with his otherworldly falsetto, live harp, and evocative lyrics, Active Child was born. The project debuted in 2010 with an EP, Curtis Lane, for Merok Records. These soaring soundscapes caught the ears of bliss popsters School of Seven Bells, who later toured alongside Active Child; they remixed each other’s songs for a split 7”. Active Child’s first full-length recording, You Are All I See, followed in summer 2011 on the Vagrant label, taking listeners on an intimate journey of the highs and lows of relationships and identity.
Gem Club is the musical project of Christopher Barnes with cellist Kristen Drymala and vocalist Ieva Berberian. They first released an EP Acid and Everything July 2010 followed up by their debut album Breakers on Hardly Art late September 2011
Heavy, psychedelic, instrumental rock music. Recorded in the summer of 2006, this gem sat dormant for some time before we picked it up as our first full-length release, though it briefly attracted the attention of Battle Kommand Records. Strong guitar playing with big chords and memorable melodies is paired with a backbone of sweetly technical drumming, with a delicate layer of cinematic ambience over the top.
What The Blood Revealed
What The Blood Revealed hail from Ayrshire on the west coast of Scotland. They came together in late 2004 and have created a sound which lies somewhere between alt-rock and post-metal. In 2007 What The Blood Revealed released their self-titled debut EP and the band is currently at work on their first full length effort.
What The Blood Revealed have already drawn comparisons with bands such as Red Sparowes, Tides and Isis and are highly recommended to all fans of this particular genre.
Dawn Chorus Ignites
Dawn Chorus Ignites create some of the finest progressive instrumental guitar based music… swirling, dynamic, emotional… sometimes gentle… sometimes ferocious – always evocative and challenging. Expect the unexpected in their music as boundaries are visited and then walked over with all the authority of a marching army.

Born in Japan, 1982. She was raised in Southern California and the Midwest, where she attended boarding school and ISU. Her early/mid 20′s were spent in a sweltering, coastal Florida city where she was not fond of hurricane weather. She has been residing in Seattle, WA since early 2009. She first started playing the piano at the age of 8, the guitar at the age of 15, and has always had an interest in taking photographs of everything in sight. In addition to hopefully finishing an ambient/instrumental album under the moniker CASCADIAN, she also hopes to finish a screenplay by mid-2011
The Good Weather For An Airstrike project was initially conceived at the beginning of 2009 to help alleviate the issues caused by suffering from tinnitus, which causes a ringing sensation in the ear and can often result in difficulty sleeping. The idea was to create a collection of relaxing sounds which would help induce sleep.
Geotic is the Ambient music outfit of Anticon recording artist Baths who is active as Postfoetus, too. While Baths is biased towards Brainfeeder-style Hip Hop and Postfoetus can clearly be attributed to beatladen Electronica, Geotic is all about blurry, harmonious Ambient music. California dreaming…
