Mission Control

Melbourne, Australia based quartet who play distortion drenched shoegaze taking cues from My Bloody Valentine, The Stone Roses, Sonic Youth and Deerhunter.

Jimmy Edgar

Jimmy Edgar is the poster child of sound couture. He dropped studies in fashion and design to concentrate on making music, has a background in art production and style. He snatches influences from his native Detroit: its decay, its fashion and its eclectic music scene. Edgar has been stitching beats since he was 10, when he produced sounds electronically and fashioned his first analogue pieces. He was influenced mostly by jazz, funk, street beat and R&B in his early years. Edgar began his career by playing the drums in experimental bands and by making tape recordings.

Sébastien Tellier

Sébastien Tellier is an exceptional, highly personal & intimate artist echoing such other one-offs as Robert Wyatt, Syd Barrett or Serge Gainsbourg. His first LP, L'incroyable vérité (The Incredible Truth) (2001), was a fantastical pop album, which careered from lo-fi electronica to bizarre cabaret tunes. Its sleeve featured Tellier in full evening dress on the front, while the back of jacket had a shot of him cavorting in some playboy’s pool. He instructed listeners to only listen to the album by candle light and won a tight band of adherents, who fell for his lush, humorous compositions.
