Tescon Pol
The Durham/Raleigh duo crafts texturally dense soundscapes comprised of interwoven digital & analog tones, fragmented rhythms, and the sounds produced by selected objects. Spatially evocative, these futuristic cocktails are equally likely to lean in the direction of abstraction or cohesive songlike choreography (occasionally complete with vocal accompaniment). Drawing inspiration from a diverse legacy of musical influences as well as visual and literary touchstones such as Modernist & contemporary architecture, Absurdism, Cyberpunk fantasy, Art Nouveau, Existentialist fiction, and Futurist philosophy.

On Zula's debut album, This Hopeful, the New York-based four-piece showcase a refreshing, forward-thinking approach to psychedelic pop music. The songs weave melody through interlocking, hypnotic rhythms — suspended spaces designed to disrupt the usual flow of time. Although Zula formed in late 2010, the musical kinship of cousins Henry and Nate Terepka (both on vocals, guitar and synths) first developed through family jam sessions during the holidays. Taking inspiration from 90's UK indie-dance, krautrock and funk, the band has built a reputation for their energetic live show and for constantly pushing their heavily rhythmic sound. They have been known to deliver entire sets of never-before-played material. This restless creativity is apparent on the album, which sounds raw and spontaneous, yet meticulously detailed. It is a record with effortless flow and pulse, but enticing depth. For zoning in or out.

Adult Science
"Slow-burn electronic music that explores several genres of pop and dance punk without losing a sense of its own identity. In doing so, they develop a sound that's fresh and begs you to take another listen." - Igor Podolsky

La Femme: The French DO Surf.

Despite their geographically challenged location, here is a collective of French surf-pop connoisseurs. Their chic, retro-futurist take on the genre is screws and skews expectations.

Wild Moccasins

With a collection of songs that web male-female vocals of couple Zahira Gutierrez and Cody Swann, as well as pop-infused percussion and string work, Wild Moccasins, a quintet of 20-somethings from Houston, TX, offer a sound that balances a musical guile beyond the band's years.

Tescon Pol

Tescon Pol is the music and miscellaneous art project of Ariel Johannessen, Mic Finger and Michael Hawthorne. They craft texturally dense soundscapes comprised of interwoven digital & analog tones, fragmented rhythms, and the sounds produced by selected objects.
