Salsa
Salsa
salsa, a Tokyo native trio band from Kensuke Suzuki (Vo.Gt.), Naoki Sato (Ba.) and Hiromu Nasu (Dr.) began their live shows in 2007.

Their music has a groove somewhat like R&R, Punk, Blues or New-Wave sounds but genres have trouble defining them for their latest and drive-oriented full throttle live styles.

"MUSIC MAGAZINE" wrote "As if Gang Of Four, Dr.Feelgood and Talking Heads were jamming in the year of 2015" to describe their sound.

Their massive live performances made them very unique and they are now nearly dominating rock showcases from top to bottom of Japan. They have a reputation as a new generation Japanese rock band with high expectation to their future activities.
Slime Girls
Slime Girls
Slime Girls is the secret shoujo chiptune life of Pedro Silva. From the wastelands of central California comes a distorted pulsewave assault of Nintendo gameboys, guitars and energetic drums. Sometimes fast, lush and loud punk rock, other times melancholy surf jams, sometimes ever danceable ska, yet always tied together with an electronic wash of melodic chip music. Alternatively: just some sorta’ loud chiptune punk anime junk.
Young Lovers
Young Lovers
Young Lovers is a Filipino-American shoegaze/post-rock band based in Los Angeles consisting of guitarists Mikey Macapagal and Jonathan Higa, bassist Josh Solomon, and drummer Ford Crispino. Their sound signature is one of the most distinctive in the area, characterized by cinematic, dreamlike, and deeply introspective longform instrumental compositions, with fans likening the sound to Explosions In The Sky, Slowdive, and American Football. Their explosive, all-encompassing, and sonically stunning live set has established them as one the staple acts of LA’s DIY scene, and as a result the band has been featured alongside fellow experimental acts The Fall of Troy, Swollen Brain (Nick Reinhart & Eric Gardner), Pretend, Brokeback, and Ava Luna. Ahead of the release of their long-anticipated debut LP, their reputation as one of LA’s premier live bands continues to grow.
Shunkan
Shunkan
Shunkan is Marina Sakimoto, along with her band members Reese Jensen, Dave Puckett, and Jacob Richards. Live performances hold nothing back, exhibiting a guitar-driven wave of hypnotic noise and sweet melodies. Her songs exude ‘90s nostalgia while keeping the thematics of her music relevant as ever. Her music has been featured in publications such as Spin, The Guardian, Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, NME, DIY Mag, the cover of NZ Musicians Magazine, and the single ‘Our Names’ was featured as BBC Radio 6’s Mp3 of the Day.
