GREY GARY https://greygary.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/greygaryband Grey Gary is the latest incarnation of the founding members of Ayurveda (band), Tom Burchinal & Shikhar Bajracharya. The duo has been described as "a two-piece cosmic rock playground," in that the two Garys swap instruments throughout their show, uncannily producing a full band sound. While one sings, plays guitar, and mans a loop-station, the other drives the beat from behind the drums and offers supporting harmonies. THE ATOMIC FORCES https://theatomicforces.bandcamp.com/album/folk-machina The Atomic Forces play politically conscious punk/country with healthy doses of psychedelic boogie woogie. Led by flamboyant frontman and songwriter Park Doing, the Forces pump out strings of hard hitting hipshakers, interspersed with lilting ballads and cheers. SAMMUS http://sammusmusic.com/ https://www.facebook.com/sammusmusic SAMMUS is an upstate New York-based rap artist, producer, and PhD student with Congolese and Ivorian family roots. Her production is characterized by her use of uniquely chopped samples, and video game-like synths. Labeled the "rap Aisha Tyler" by MTV Iggy for her intelligent lyrics, Sammus has built a following within the underground hip hop scene and has become one of the faces of black female geeks within the growing nerdcore hip hop movement. NEGATIVE EXTERNALITIES https://www.facebook.com/pages/Negative-Externalities/309286259248851 Driving, loud, local youth garage rock. Tyler from Eukalyptus on drums, Lachlan and Etienne from KSP on bass and guitar. We're that cigarette second hand smoke. We're so thick we'll make you fucking choke. We're that chewing gum on the bottoms of your shoes, we are coming after you.
