Karoshi is a 3-piece post-punk band from the NC Triangle. Shoegaze-inspired guitars, bass, and drum machine are used to craft pop songs that convey the unique blend of rage and bafflement towards a neoliberal culture in a post-Trump reality. While confronting their subject matter with a healthy dose of irony, KARŌSHI injects strains of grindcore, sludge metal, and hardcore to emphasize the damage and toil that is experienced from living in a ruthless, capital-first political culture. Sweet Homé Experimental noise-pop/shoegaze…

A.A. Bondy Nobody remembers if Gladys Broussard won the bingo game by going across or down. She might have even won by going diagonal, which has always been kind of like cheating to me. Anyhow, they had to give her the prize: two 33 and 1/3 long playing albums. The first was a Kiss record. They looked awful, very dangerous. The other album was the Village People's Cruising. It had a few men on the cover, relaxing on their toys.…

The Goodbye Party After spending five years leading DC/Philly-based power-pop band The Ambulars, Michael Cantor needed an outlet for his other songs: the bedroom recordings - noisy lo-fi experiments, meandering somber songs with auxiliary instrumentation (bowed guitar, lap steel guitar, tape collages) all recorded by Cantor in isolation. He relocated to Philadelphia and started releasing home-recordings as The Goodbye Party. This solo project he would later fully flesh out to create his first full length album under that project, Silver…

Mister Goblin is the solo moniker of Sam Woodring, former singer/guitarist of Wheaton, MD’s Two Inch Astronaut.

Nana Grizol Growing up in the South, Theo Hilton found both lonely solace and wide community in music. When he formed Nana Grizol in Athens, Ga., in 2007, he secured an outlet for expressing how confusion and constant pining became ingrained into a young, queer male in a small town. Despite Athens' liberal leanings and bevy of artistic collaborators, Theo walked in liminal spaces as a queer surrounded by straight people. Nana Grizol's first two records "Love It, Love It"…
