Headroom  ~
“New Haven, CT’s Headroom offer an escape to the thoughts of the day, a searing white-hot energy that manifests in meditative guitar distortion. Formed by Kryssi Battalene (lead guitarist of the similar psych-minded Mountain Movers), the sprawl of Headroom takes a deeper dive into psychedelic pastures, ruminating on noise as melodic evolution with a free-form approach.”

“Mariam Saleh began performing under the heady moniker of BONG WISH in the Massachusetts of yesteryear. Drawing from British folk and fantasy, Bong Wish skews to the far out lyrically, encouraging universal love and inner peace. The debut EP presents a patchouli-scented fantasia of pure, unsolicited rage. Mostly home-recorded, the eponymous EP sees Mariam and her mystical cohorts explore different moods, styles and vibes across four tracks, ranging from lush string arrangements and exotic flutes to shimmering guitars and earthy percussion. Come along…”

Germ House ~
Germ House is the solo recording project of Justin Hubbard, formerly of Boston band Turpentine Brothers. Live the band is augmented by Hubbard’s wife & musical partner Tara McManus-Hubbard (Mr. Airplane Man / Turpentine Brothers) & Joe Ayoub (Marked Men / Shangalang).
