    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.

    Heavy on nostalgia and literary allusion, Golden Suits' first self-titled solo album was centered around mastermind Fred Nicolaus' recent breakup and an obsession with a book of short stories by John Cheever that gave way to contemplative, folk-inflected tunes. With "Is It Wrong" Nicolaus is moving the needle towards a more dreamy pop influence and he notes, "It's not about finessing a chord voicing anymore, it's about taking a risk on a big chorus."

    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

    SALES is the collaboration between long time friends Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih. The Florida indie pop duo self-released their eponymous six-track debut EP on September 22, 2014 featuring the singles “renee”, “chinese new year”, “vow”, and “getting it on”, and were named “Ones to Watch” by Hype Machine + BBC Radio 6 Music. So far, the songs on SALES EP have over 2.5 million streams on Soundcloud and over 6 million streams on Spotify. They have since headlined tours in the US, Canada, and Europe, selling out concerts in many major cities.

    Embracing a DIY ethic, their long-awaited fifteen-track debut album, SALES LP, was self-released on April 20, 2016 along with the singles “big sis”, “jamz”, and “ivy”. The intimate album is an homage to their limitations with time, equipment, money, and space. Working on music tirelessly by moonlight between dead-end jobs, both the LP and EP were recorded from an apartment bedroom studio. The LP was produced, mixed, and mastered by SALES, and created under the duo’s “as is” approach to music — each track explores new territory as they heavily rely on experimentation within their artistic process, whether it is switching lead guitarists, moving over to let someone else hold the mouse, recording vocals through Apple headphones (rather than the stellar SM7B), or inserting a 404 into a ballad.The distinct sound the duo has created is minimal, yet meticulously crafted, emotive and incisive. SALES LP has caught the attention of Pitchfork, Pigeons & Planes, My Old Kentucky Blog, Crack in the Road, and many others. The addition of the SALES LP to their tiny repertoire is only the beginning of an ever-expanding sound, and a small step in a new approach to music: empowered by the digital listening experience, and completely independent of a record label.

    A man and his guitar…honest, unfiltered and true. In a landscape filled with Top 40 beats and harmonizing folk groups, a lone singer-songwriter definitely has his work cut out for him.

    Adam Torres has spent the past decade volunteering in rural Ecuador, completing a graduate degree in Texas, and working to improve the water quality of the Rio Grande River — all whilst simultaneously writing hundreds of songs. While a number of those were released as demos in 2012 through DC cassette-label DZ Tapes, Torres has yet to provide a proper follow-up to his 2006 self-released debut Nostra Nova, a DIY staple in his small college town of Athens, Ohio. Torres' new album, Pearls to Swine, is out Sept. 9 on Fat Possum.

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