Gap Dream

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:

From glam to gunk this Ohio trippy man can be found making his home recordings that range from Peter Koppes to Slade. Or just at home resting with his pretty little pup Judy. Nothing stands in Gabriel Fulvimar’s way.

Rollo & Grady Artist to Watch

"In this writer’s opinion, Gap Dreams self-titled debut is one of 2012’s most underrated albums, a mix of ’60s paisley pop and druggy drone that has ambitions beyond home-recorded origins.” -Brooklyn Vegan

Regal Degal

WHAT Regal Degal SOUNDS LIKE: http://bit.ly/UMGwut

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:

Regal Degal is a power trio consisting of Josh da Costa [Gemini] on guitars and vocals, Josiah Wolfson [Libra] on bass, and Jamen Whitelock [Virgo] on drums. Formed in Brooklyn in late 2009, the group recently relocated to Los Angeles. The group’s sound pulls omnidirectionally from across the musical spectrum, drawing from post-punk, krautrock, 60’s psychedelic / freakbeat, 80’s new wave and indie, German minimal house, and the music of Africa. The music could be described as hyper rhythm conscious, melodic, atmospheric, and kinetic, with one foot firmly in the past and an eye fixed towards the future. In the center resides Regal Degal, channeling and reinterpreting all individual and shared inspirations into a sound best referred to as DEEP ROCK.

"Brooklyn post-punk trio Regal Degal perform in a kind of wind-tunneling locked-groove, one that gathers steam as it circles into itself. They’re fronted by onetime Dinowalrus drummer Josh da Costa, which maybe has something to do with the percussiveness of each instrument. (And their updated take on an older, dirtier NYC sound is more serious than you’d expect from the Three’s Company Regal Beagle echo of their name.)" -Stereogum

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:

"Yanked off the chain of a forthcoming self-released 12”, “Peace On Repeat” is both familiar ground and an utter rarity amongst the cacophony that’s been spewing out Brooklyn for the past several months. Glimmeringly soaked guitar hits echo and repeat insistently over a hand-pounded mechanical drumbeat, leaving space for narrative-oriented pedal flourishes while da Costa’s voice floats detached in and out of the scene, somewhere in between an Ian Curtis or a John Bender. There is also that sneaky bassline that starts tickling you halfway through the chorus, taking you back to a mid-90s R&B groove." - IMPOSE MAGAZINE
