Wet Hair

Wet Hair is Shawn Reed and Ryan Garbes, the two remaining members of Raccoo-oo-oon that stayed in Iowa City after the bands end. Reed also runs Night-People Records, which Garbes often contributes to. Wet Hair began as a solo outing for Reed in late 2007 during the final months of Raccoo-oo-oon, and after the release of a 12" EP and the Irifi Cassette Garbes was added on organ and live drums. Wet Hair has evolved over time shifting the bands sound steadily towards a more refined pop sensibility.

Paul Heslin

Paul Heslin was raised in the capital city of Australia in a dark well of hyper-christian homeschooling, before peeling the layers off and beginning to grapple with the world of electronic sound. In 2008, after completing a university degree in digital sound and composition, he vanished overseas to England and France for an extensive period of musical development, returning to Australia in late 2010 with a spiky melange of facial hair and the transformative rubbernecker ep.

Zola Jesus

Zola Jesus is the endeavor of a solitary girl named Nika Roza Danilova to simultaneously combat and invoke the approaching apocalypse using the only weapon/offering she has: her voice. After a decade of opera study and a musical awakening involving such varied inspiration as Billboard bubblegum, classical arias, no wave, avant industrial, she was able to thread her influences into a sound uniquely her own.

MoHa!

Morten J. Olsen -­ drums & SuperCollider3
Anders Hana -­ guitar & keyboard. MoHa! play somewhat loud music influenced by incredibly varied sources. Some say the duo deal in sonic splatter, in a brew of improvisation, noise, computer music and probably some more. Others say it is reminiscent of the conversation your mate has at you on the weekend in a club when he’s had too much to drink and is telling you how great everything is at 100mph. Only instead of your mate it is actually R2D2, which leads you to believe maybe that someone did put something in your drink.

Radio People

From the salty tear-infected circuit boards of Cleveland, Ohio, comes 'Radio People', Sam Goldberg's synthwave commission for the ever-excellent Digitalis imprint. For the latter half of the '00s he's been a part of the same underground noise scene as Emeralds, running his Pizza Night cassette imprint and releasing a handful of rare tapes on Gneiss Things, Wagon and Weird Forest, among others. Radio People is a relatively recent handle he's been using for a trio of now out-of-print cassettes on Pizza Night, and this is the first vinyl product of that chemically imbalanced sound.
