Lespecial
Born in the woods of Connecticut and raised in the wilds of Boston, lespecial has established themselves as innovators and tastemakers on their own unique trajectory.
The aggressive death-funk dance trio explodes with energetic live sets, tapping into a primitive past distorted through the lens of contemporary technology.
Coming off the release of their second EP, Ceremony, preceded by Playonbrother Sessions (2011), Jonathan Grusauskas (guitar/keys/trumpet), Luke Bemand (bass guitar) and Rory Dolan (drums) ignore convention, instead amalgamating the familiar styles of Afro-Latin rhythmic traditions, Hip Hop, Funk and Metal into a singular sound that dexterously transforms during their live sets and over the course of their studio albums. As Ben Weiss of Relix Magazine puts it, "Amidst the rest of the noise, lespecial is the squeaky wheel that demands attention."
Steep
Steep
Steep is the sound of new progressive rock. Born in Owasco in 2011, that sound has moved and grown to what it is today: power, groove and mystique. Steep is brought to you by Elliot Jarvis (Bass Guitar & Vocals) also of Solar Garlic, Jack Jarvis (Drums) also of Solar Garlic, Brian Lauri (Keyboards) of Pearly Baker's Best and Solar Garlic fame, and Dylan Lundgren (Guitar), also of Casaroja.
