Milemarker
Formed 1997 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina by Al Burian, Dave Laney and Ben Davis, Milemarker quickly gained recognition in the independent music scene for their explosive live shows and adventurous instrumentation. The band became known for its combination of post-hardcore punk with new wave electronics, and found a solid touring line-up 1999-2004 in Burian, Laney and singer/synth player Roby Newton. Milemarker played circa 1000 shows in support of their releases Frigid Forms Sell (Lovitt, 2000) and Anaesthetic (Jade Tree, 2001), touring extensively in North America, Europe and Japan, along the way sharing the stage with bands such as Wire, Mission of Burma, At The Drive-In, The Hives, Thursday, Blood Brothers, International Noise Conspiracy, High On Fire, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Muff Potter, Cave In, Les Savy Fav, Spoon, Monochrome, Turbostaat, The Faint, The Locust, and Hot Snakes. The band continued to play with shifting line-ups between 2005-2008, completing a US and European tour with founding member Ben Davis, and performing at the SXSW and Fusion festivals.

In 2009, guitarist Dave Laney moved to Hamburg and focused his musical energy into the band Auxes, while bassist Al Burian moved to Berlin to pursue literary and journalistic interests. A re-ignition of the band in Germany seemed inevitable. Milemarker returned to the stage and studio in 2015, with Lena Kilkka on keys/vocals and Ezra Cale on drums.

Callowhill
Callowhill
Happily, the musical paths of Katy Otto (Trophy Wife), Julia Gaylord (True if Destroyed), John Pettit (Make a Rising) and Nikki Karam crossed in Philadelphia in 2013 to form Callowhill. Their sound is space and sea meets edge and clutter. Post-punk vibes, krautrock crushes, indie pop memories. Callowhill's interplay of hard and soft guitars juxtaposed at times against a spacier texture reflect a deep appreciation for bands like Sleater-Kinney and Helium.

In February 2015, the group released its debut seven inch on Otto's label Exotic Fever Records.
