"I have a way of loving too many things to take on just one shape," Jilian Medford sings over and over again on the title track of the Brooklyn-based band IAN SWEET's debut album, Shapeshifter, repeating it like a mantra.
It's an album about losing love and your sense of self in the process, about grabbing at the little things in life that bring joy when nothing else is going according to plan. It's also an ode to the bandmates, and the friends, that see you through.
Diet Cig is a pop rock band from New Paltz, NY, fronted by Alex Luciano with Noah Bowman of Earl Boykins (Forged Artifacts) on drums. The five charming songs on the debut Over Easy EP, written by Alex in the comforts of her bedroom, capture the innocence of adolescence and infatuation.
Diet Cig is currently working on their debut LP to be released in 2016.
Liima is a new band consisting of the Finnish percussionist Tatu Rönkkö and the three members of Efterklang, Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg. The debut album "ii" includes songs written in Finland, Berlin, Istanbul and Madeira during four weeklong residencies. Each place has affected the sound, sometimes literally in the form of samples and field recordings, and each residency ended with a concert where the band performed the newly written songs.
Jenny Hval has in recent years made a name for herself as an artist, musician and writer both in Norway and abroad. When her third record Viscera was released in 2011, WIRE magazine described the record as: "a stunning achievement both conceptually and musically."
Multidisciplinary and transgressive are words often employed to describe her art, but Jenny Hval's polyphonic artistry is in fact seamlessly interwoven between musical, literary, visual and performative modes of expression. Despite her young age, she has already infused, carved and modulated an artistic voice that is altogether present, accessible and obscurely complex at the same time.

The first single, “River”, offers a glimpse into KROY’s musical landscape- a captivating universe of hypnotic rhythms and analogue synthesizers.
