The Prids

So The Prids didn't form their band last year when they met in college, or 6 months ago when they met at a show, and this isn't their debut release. It's extremely fair to say The Prids have been around the block a few times.

To keep it short and sweet : David Frederickson (guitars, vocals) and Mistina La Fave (bass, vocals) started their band together over a decade ago in rural Missouri. They released a slew of 7"s,eps, and full lengths. They relocated to several cities before landing in beautiful Portland, OR where they now reside. Also of not is the fact that the two fell in love, were married, were divorced, and yet the band continued on. Maile Arruda (keys) and Lee Zeman (drums) round out The Prids sound.

'Chronosynclastic' is the culmination of the Prids life experiences, song writing, playing, and recording. The result is a stunning collection of down right lovable, off kilter, pop songs. Melancholy in feeling, but moving fast enough to appear happy on the surface. The soaring melodies, and the dual boy / girl vocals is the band's foundation. Then you add in David's perfect guitar hooks (remiiniscent of some of Joey Santiago's famous early Pixies guitar lines), heartfelt lyrics, and the pulsing rhythm section and you come out with songs that you want to hear over and over again. David explains the theme of the record to be "About the passing of time, the perception of time, and the marks that are left on our lives".

Veil Veil Vanish

Coming from San Francisco's distinctive music scene, Veil Veil Vanish has played sold out shows with A Place to Bury Strangers, No Age, Holy Fuck, Celebration, and 1990's (UK).

Following a US tour in support of their critically acclaimed EP 'Into a New Mausoleum', Veil Veil Vanish received national radio play including stations such as Live 105 and Indie 103 and played San Francisco's NOISE POP music festival in both 2008 and 2009. In Fall 2008, Veil Veil Vanish was featured on the Cure tribute album 'Perfect As Cats' on Manimal Vinyl Records along with Bat For Lashes, Dandy Warhols, and The Muslims (The Soft Pack).

Mister Loveless

A veritable Frankenstein's monster of genres, composed of alternative rock, surf instrumentals, post-punk, no wave, and countless other styles is a four- piece band hailing from California's San Francisco Bay Area.
