Straw Hats
Straw Hats
From the sticks to the city, STRAW HATS rummaged the streets of Philadelphia finding one complete drum set, bass rig (with bass), and guitar rig (with guitar). Soon after, these three young vigilantes turned in their lives of nighttime crime fighting for music and more chances of social interactions/brighter future filled with melody and attitude.
Prism Tats
Prism Tats
Prism Tats is a Los Angeles-based rock 'n roll band that is the creation of the deceptively sophisticated South African musician, Garett van der Spek. Although it began as a one-man band with a drum machine keeping the beat for van der Spek's quite modestly self-described "yelping and noodling", it is quickly gaining momentum: after enlisting a live drummer & bass player, the band has begun to turn Angelenos' heads & will be touring nationally throughout 2016.

Following the self-release of a home-recorded EP titled Excess, van der Spek finished a full-length album, which was recently mixed by Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Wild Flag, !!!). The self-titled debut album is out now on Anti- Records.
Dear Friend
Dear Friend is a rock band from Philadelphia, PA. The band is centered around singer-song writer Kenny Luu, and consists of Julia Rainer on guitar and backing vocals, Will Wright on bass, and Branden King on drums. Their fuzzy, hook-driven brand of power pop blends elements of punk, surf, and shoegaze, and they've been compared to The Pixies, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Weezer. Their first full-length self-titled album was released in June, 2016.
