Reader's Wives (Indie Rock) 
 “With shades of Pulp, The Smiths & early Arctic Monkeys, the Wives have both catchy, upbeat get-off-your-arse-&-dance numbers and bittersweet, melancholic tunes offset by Holohan’s sharp, observant lyrics" - HOT PRESS   Saints of Valory (Alternative Rock)   From four different countries spanning three continents, Saints of Valory come with quite the international flair. Frontman Gavin Jasper is from Rio de Janeiro Brazil, guitarist Godfrey Thomson from southern California, on drums Gerard Bouvier is from France, & on keyboards Stephen Buckle hails from Canada. The band kicked off in Austin after SXSW 2010 & already have a rapidly growing fan base due in part to their live show which is best described as "electric".   
Black Sun Empire (Dubstep/Electronic)
Black Sun Empire represent the finest in dark and techy dancefloor drum and bass. Since bursting onto the scene back in 2000, they’ve continued to develop their own unique style and sound, releasing numerous singles as well as four full-length LPs
Bop Skizzum (Alternative Pop-Rock) 
 Since it's founding more than ten years ago Bop Skizzum has always taken pleasure in concocting songs that enable you to blow off some steam by getting on the floor and burning it up. Screaming horn lines, block-rocking beats, and lyrics squarely stamped with Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" seal of approval all point to one thing: Bop Skizzum's mission is to make you dance.   Wheeler Brothers (Folk/Indie Rock) Formed in Austin, Texas, Wheeler Brothers have quickly emerged as one of Austin's most exciting up-and-coming bands. The five-piece independent folk-rock act combines the indie vibe of Austin with the twang of Texas folk.    Taught Abroad (Electro Rock)  Electronic Indie Rock from Chicago. Self Titled EP available now for a free download!   El Dog (Indie Rock)  El Dog. The lovable four piece from Glasgow. Their debut album "The Lamps Of Terrahead" was released in 2009 to much critical acclaim. "So impressively put together, it’s hard to believe that this is the Glasgow four piece’s debut album." - 4/5 Shout 4 Music   Mei Ohara (Electric Violin/Electronica)  Electric violin meets electronic space dust!   Telepathic Teddy Bear (Electro Pop)  "Infectious electro pop." Here is a song from the 2010 record, Reactions.   Showstar (Indie Pop)  Monkey See Monkey Do (produced by Richard Formby, known for his highly acclaimed work with Wild Beasts, Mogwai and Spectrals) continues the trend with a beautifully honest and tellingly resigned dissection of isolation and uncertainty. It’s another song about loneliness, retrogaming, mind control and socialization paradox   Sidewalk Dave (Indie Rock)  Sidewalk Dave formed in 2007 under the name “Sidewalk Dave” which was originally the lead singer’s (Dave Van Witt) nickname. Van Witt was named Sidewalk Dave after championing an unusual childhood that left him homeless at 16 years old. Now with the lesson of camaraderie burnt in his mind, the 4 members play for what Sidewalk Dave represents; courage, brotherhood, booze, and the importance of a good woman in your arms.  
Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt (Psychedelic Folk)

An album about crazy people, oceans, and murder.
Recorded in the basement of a dorm, spawned from craziness and late nights.

A Matter Gray (Alternative Rock)

Composer and Los Angeles musician Jeehun brings you A MATTER GRAY. Rooted in pop-rock with a 5-piece band arrangement, the musical style of A MATTER GRAY readily diverges into other genres as the songs require. Wide ranging influences include 70s classic rock, 80s pop & 90s grunge/alternative.
