Papertwin
Papertwin
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, this band has been creating music since 2009. New wave vocals, and a mix of dream pop, Brit pop and shoegaze combine to make the sound that is Papertwin. The heavy usage of synthesizers informs their sonic foundation while translucent, crystalline vocals etch a distinguishing clarity to their sound. Often known for creating an airy, cloud-like atmosphere, the rhythmic presence of electronic drums bespeckled with bombarding fills points more clearly to the eras of 80's synthpop and 90's industrial.
Max Decker (guitar, vocals and songwriter), along with Francis Cardinale (drums), Nick Shopa, (keyboard) and Justin Michael Miller (bass), inspire dense yet bright, and robust melodic mixes, as evidenced in their self-produced debut album, Porcelain.


Decker, a schooled painter and artist whose work can be seen on the cover of the Porcelain EP, rekindled his musical passions after attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He continued to paint vivid images and heartfelt emotions, but this time through the compilation and personification of modest words joined with strong beats and energetic melodies that hit a chord and trigger a can't-help-but-dance response.


Shortly after Decker began to revisit his musical side, he was quickly joined by high school friend Cardinale in 2009, who also brought Shopa, a classically trained guitarist with a skill for repairing and tuning pianos, with him to command the keyboard. Bassist Justin Miller, a Berklee College of Music alum, music producer and recording engineer, then completed the quartet in 2010.
Camp Ground
Camp Ground
Summer 2010 is when it kicked off, in some Bushwick loft on Cook street..represent yo.

Project took a turn for the better when we moved down the street and inherited the Chris Denune Memorial Studio.

Noises became songs, jams became rehearsals, band meetings became mandatory (thnx Murray..)

And finally on October 21, 2012, Camp Ground becomes self-aware.

dun dun dundun dunt!
Kodacrome
Kodacrome
Kodacrome is Elissa Pociask (keys, vocals) and Ryan Casey (drums, electronics). Elissa designs energetic, interwoven pop melodies with haphazard structures, layered vocals, and mean lyrics. Ryan builds rich, textured soundscapes which can fall anywhere in between delicate and grimy. By means of a very natural spirit of teamwork, the two form thoughtfully crafted pieces, easy on the head and heavy on the pretty.
Kiss Slash Crooked Smile
Kiss Slash Crooked Smile
As the nascent nu-pop underground digs its heels in deeper during 2013, Assaf Asi Spector , Yula Beeri and Stefan Baldasseroni's band Kiss Slash Crooked Smile should at least win the prize for most bizarre moniker. All genre classifications aside, KSCS’s sold out audiences can testify to the fact that their music packs a beautiful crowd and gets them moving. Kiss Slash Crooked Smile is a straight up EDM trio with a virtuosic twist.
