Vandana Jain
Vandana Jain
Last year Vandana Jain, a Brooklyn-based graphic designer turned experimental pop performer, quietly released her debut EP Vandamner complete with her own intricate album art, handmade record sleeve and limited pressing all sealed with a touch of red wax and twine. It is that same attention to intimate detail that infects her music as well, lending both to its beauty and to its raw, uncomfortable quality.

Raised in India and educated in London, Vandana has collected an eclectic tapestry of both musical and aesthetic influences over the years, all of which find a place in the music. Everything from Portishead to Pink Floyd, the rave scene in London and Indian pop music lend to her layered style of glitchy beats, electronic swells and heavy synth lines that lay beneath Jain's emotive front and center vocal play.

Although the project is primarily a solo effort, most recently Vandana teamed up with Yusuke Yamamoto, a New York based artist musician. Together they re-worked the set with live vocals over thick club beats and spontaneous loop creation.

Vandana has her debut full lenth Anti Venus due out later this year. The first single Ecstatic from the LP which premiered on Ad Hoc this April can be streamed on Souncloud.

House of Blondes
House of Blondes
House of Blondes is a Brooklyn-based synth trio. RCRD LBL called the recent single Slow Motion Tourist "an atmospheric robot stomper that's equally ready for the closing credits and a dry ice-laden dancefloor," and praised the band's influences like GAS, Brian Eno, New Order, and early OMD.
