Morello is British born, L.A-based songwriter/producer Malcolm 'Sir Mal' Cross' (drummer for Pete Yorn/The Olms, Minibar and Spiritualized) solo endeavor, on which he teamed up with Japanese multi-instrumentalist Masaru Mitsu (Chocolat, Northern Light, Cymbals), for his third effort, The Duellists. The project stemmed from a shared interest in obscure guitar bands and 80's synth-pop, which later transformed into a long-distance online friendship that would diminish any cultural boundaries, and resulted in an eclectic, yet tasteful mix of catchy songs about modern life and love.

Miranda Lee Richards is a gifted Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter. Born in San Francisco after the summer of love and before the dawn of disco, she grew up in an artistic and bohemian environment that has informed her adult life and work. Her parents are well-known underground comic book artists Ted and Terre Richards, R. Crumb being their most infamous contemporary.

After graduating from the San Francisco School Of The Arts, she travelled to Paris to model, but soon returned to the U.S. to pursue a musical career. A series of chance encounters with influential people began when she became friends with Kirk Hammet from Metallica, who taught her to play guitar. Early demos of her songs reached the ears of Anton Newcombe, and she soon joined his band The Brian Jonestown Massacre. She sang on their early albums Give It Back, Bringing It All Back Home Again, and Stung Out In Heaven, and appeared with them in the seminal documentary DIG!.

In 2001, Virgin Records released her full-length debut album The Herethereafter. The record was a mix of folk, psychedelia, country and indie pop, and generated fans worldwide, especially in Japan where the single “The Long Goodbye” reached the top five.

Her critically acclaimed sophomore album Light of X, the title of which came from a dream about harnessing beams of light to travel in time, followed in 2009 via Nettwerk Records. The music was a progression from the template laid out on her debut, anticipating the symphonic pop music that came later with the likes of Anna Calvi and Agnes Obel.

Richards’ latest album, Echoes Of The Dreamtime, was recorded at her home studio with husband and producer Rick Parker (best known for his work with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Lord Huron). It brings together eight pastoral, atmospheric epics into a work that is her most impressive yet. Echoes of the Dreamtime focuses on a lyrically narrative style, with many of the songs counting in at over five minutes, with four and five verses a-piece. One song, the eight-minute track “It Was Given” (based on the movie The White Ribbon by Michael Haneke), is an example of an adaptation put to song.

As Richards states, “So much of our experience lies within the realm of the subconscious, influencing our outer realities. When we realize we have control over our offering to the world, we begin to examine the subconscious and have a conversation with it, instead of being ruled unknowingly by it. Contained therein are themes of self-discovery, transformation, and grappling with the duality between dark and light within ourselves and society. The literal use of Space Echo throughout the album is reflective of the theme: it’s subtle and beautiful and repeats until we listen.”

Echoes Of The Dreamtime comes out worldwide via London-based indie Invisible Hands Music on January 29, 2016.

Indie/atmospheric post rock outfit, Alisal, is the culmination of Tristan Dolce's (vox/guitar/piano) fascination with the forgotten stories of 19th century Los Angeles. 8 years of writing and over 3 dozen demos later, the band (Jason Sibucao, Patrick Clancy, and Gabe Baker) came together to begin work on debut record Arroyoan (in 2 parts) in the band-built studio in Los Angeles in the spring of 2015. Arroyoan Part I is out now, with Part II to be released spring 2016.

Dstnce is a 2-piece electronic group based out of Los Angeles, CA creating experimental, bass-driven tracks with an ambient and melodic overtone reminiscent of the early days of Massive Attack fused with Kiasmos out of Iceland. Classically-traineddrummer/producer, Clinton Van Arnam and LA singer/keyboardist, Melanie deJesus, formed dstnce in 2013 after a chance meeting brought the two together through the discovery of their mutual affinity for a wide range of influences from Nicolas Jaar and Aphex Twin to Radiohead, Sigur Ros, and Beach House.  

To follow the 2015 release of their debut EP, DRUGS, dstnce draws inspiration from their travels as they continue to write and evolve, steadily working towards an audio/visual performance and more mini EP releases in 2016.
