Emil & Friends
Somewhere inside the glowing rectangles, Emil found album worthy tinkerings of nylon strings, waterfalls of voices, flutterings of bells whistles and synths. So goes descriptions of danceable weirdpop act Emil & Friends. As a boy Emil would show up to guitar lesson with a produced track on a cd, with no guitar. Heads were scratched. Emil would show up to a dj gig with only a guitar. Brows were lifted. Years passed. Attics were changed into bass drum batcaves…

The solace found in multitrack recording allowed Dr. Young guns to forget about the headaches of premature live shows and concentrate on creating a foundation for a sound to you we now present. Inspired by the hunt for lost relatives, cures for heart conditions, obsessive letter writing, snacks, and hot trax; created from start to finish on his own, his ep and upcoming albums, along with a slew of covers and remixes, will leave the enemy waving white flags, and shall soon be yours for the taking.

Be careful where you bring him as he may just push the principal off of the stage and grab his megaphone and scream “food fight!”
Leisure
Leisure
Leisure recently released Plastic Soul - their self-produced, debut album. The group's members have know each other since being thrown together in high school. Connecting over disparate origins, the three were soon sharing CDs and playing music together. Frontman Jed Rouhana channels these themes of cultural displacement in his vocals. Incorporating influences from American soul, electronic dance, Leisure has cultivated a distinct sound they call Plastic Soul.
