Young Magic
Although now firmly settled in New York City, Young Magic's three members came together through equal helpings of openness and fortuity. In 2010, singer and producer Isaac Emmanuel had left his home continent of Australia to travel across Europe, over to New York, and down through Mexico, all the while creating and recording music with whatever instruments he found along the way. While in Mexico, Emmanuel kept a tight correspondence with fellow Australian expat Michael Italia, who for months had been similarly traveling across Europe and South America with portable recording gear in tow. They decided to meet up in New York, where their good friend from a few years prior, Indonesian-born vocalist Melati Malay, had been living and making her own recordings. In early 2011 the three friends, who had initially bonded over their broad musical palettes, began recording together and contributing songs to the record, culling influences and finding their own footing among them. The immediately fruitful collaboration brought forth singles "Sparkly", "You With Air" and "Night In The Ocean," all of which were fitting indicators of the band's chameleonic sound, heavily informed by West African rhythms, Brainfeeder hip-hop, UK bass, and 60s psychedelic soul.

Quilt

"Twangy, somewhat ramshackle blend of 1960s psychedelia, mantric blues, and folk...they were the first band I had heard all week whose vocal parts included classic, three-part harmonies -- and whose use of a Farfisa was less retro-futuristic than straight-up retro." --Pitchfork

Shock

Shock is Terri Loewenthal, Dan Judd and Michael Taras. We make cosmic dance and emotional pop music. Vocals and space guitars surrounded with warm synth layers, deep bass, and electric rhythms encourage the crowd to dance. The gentle brush of a windchime signals the beginning of a journey from the pyramids to the ocean.
