Teletextile
Teletextile
Teletextile is the creation of multi-instrumentalist (Harp, Piano, Violin, Guitar) and vocalist Pamela Martinez. A follow up to a previous release Care Package, the Reflector EP was recorded with her past band members Caitlin Gray (Bass, Guitar, Vocals) and Luke Scheiders (Drums, Bells), as well as friends Brian Hamilton (Cymbals Eat Guitars), Aynsley Powel (Tigercity, St. Vincent), Elliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost), and Dave Sheinkopf (The Subjects). Producer Al Carlson (Games, Oneohtrix Point Never, St. Vincent) helped work the boards as they recorded through most of the first half of 2010. The dreamy soundscapes alternate between delicate plucking of the harp strings to a adorned voluptuous sound, all making the bed for Martinez' boundless vocals. Martinez's current touring group is made of Alex Topornycky (Guitar), Tim Cronin (Bass), and Allan Mednard (Drums).
A San Antonio, TX native, Martinez began her love affair with the musical arts at a young age. Family sing alongs alternated between her mother and grandmother's love of Ettta James, and her father's affection for George Harrison. When her punk rock aunt would baby sit, the two would watch The Labyrinth and Hairspray on repeat, fostering her affection for the stranger more festooned side of life, art, and music. After attending University in Boston, in 2007 she moved to New York where she worked with the group So Percussion. Through that experience she met the likes of Matmos, Paul Lansky, Tristen Perich, Zeena Parkins, Lesley Flanigan and others. All composers that used both electronics and acoustic instruments in their music, the relationships she formed in those early days in the city remain an influence in the present.
Reflector represents the latest step in Teletextile's unfolding journey towards self-discovery, and the listener is encouraged to come along for the ride. Martinez' sites one of her main motivations of creating and playing music as finding a way to replicate the experience of dreaming. "You should want to close your eyes when listening to music," she says, "it should be your own story, your own vision."
Child Actor
Child Actor
Child Actor is a collaboration between producer Max Heath and Bostonian cousin Sedgie Ogilvy. Together they concoct R & B for the digital age, with hip hop and psych elements clawing at the walls of a restless alt-pop soundscape. The sultry vocals of Ogilvy often sound as if slowly risen from the bottom of a well and out into speakers. Her vulnerable, home-recorded demos constitute the foundation for Heath's often mountainous production consisting of heaps of synths, expertly-chopped
samples, and his own complementary backing vocals. Victory, the duo's debut long player, comes on the heels of two well-received EPs (Partner and Window) released earlier in the year. Songs like "Reasons" and "If You Loved Me" get under the skin quickly with Ogilvy's alternately plaintiveand assured voice engulfed in Heath's fluid, ethereal patterns. With early
acclaim from The Guardian, The Fader, VICE, NYLON, and many more, Child Actor is seeing the first performances of their career become highly anticipated.
Hairy Sands
Hairy Sands
Hairy Sands began six years ago in a small room across from Cooper Park in Brooklyn, NY with David Nolen and Clint Newsom (Rhythm of Black Lines). Meeting for a few days each year, songs were written quickly and layered till the point of collapse. Hairy Sands writes and performs with vocalist and keyboardist Danica Newell.
Jezzy and the Belles
