MIXED DOUBLES, ORCA AGE, VESPULA
MIXED DOUBLES: Lisa Liu (Las Lanas, Magnetic Island) and Justin Gonzales (Passenger Peru, DLK) are Mixed Doubles, a duo exploring and pushing the limits of the acoustic guitar. Both free and composed, their music is simultaneously unpredictable and inviting. Their sound is also hard to pin down, containing elements of rock, jazz, folk, ambient music, and the avant garde.
ORCA AGE: Orca Age creates guitar-driven music that oscillates between a quiet melodic sincerity and blistering freneticism. The result is a kind of idiosyncratic rock majesty. The songs are intricate yet accessible; disarming, anthemic, and wild...
VESPULA: A girl who sings with a guitar, and messes around with some effects pedals. Lyrical depth with a tinge of refreshing darkness.
