MY DEAREST FRIENDS - The stirring sounds of My Dearest Friends fall somewhere between The Beach Boys and Portishead, a 1950s burger joint with rollerskates and Radiohead b-sides blaring out under the covered parking lot. Like all great art, it's indescribably focused, beautiful and irreverent, music that undeniably needs to be heard. Right. Now.

The MILK PIPES - Sounding like a '63 Impala comin' sideways around a corner on two wheels, The Milk Pipes always drop the hammer on their original tunes with a joyful and reckless abandon. Tube amps and classic guitars slash against the solid punch of a rhythm section born to serve the song while keys and ukes underpin the whole cacophony with delicious counter melodies.

The CREAKING PLANKS - "The Jug Band Of The Damned" represent nothing stranger than the iPod of 1906, giving obscure, hilarious, misfit folk songs their proper due while using old time instruments to reinterpret the likes of Britney Spears, Nine Inch Nails, the Talking Heads and Sesame Street.

JIMY NOW - In this solo project, Jimy performs on electric ukulele and guitar. In re-creating the roots of classic rock, rhythm & blues, he captures the timeless music of Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, and many more in the 1950s to early 60s era. Prepare to be transcended.
