We're very pleased to announce that we'll joined live by the iconic genre defying indie-psych-soul band Apollo Heights! Fronted by twin brothers Danny and Daniel Chavis, they've worked with Mos Def, TV on the Radio, Robin Guthrie of The Cocteau Twins and countless others. They performed at our NewSonic Festival in 2011 and it was electric, very excited to have them back!
Also joining us is the great Clementine and the Galaxy, a synth-driven art-pop band fronted by the lovely vocals Julie Hardy (St. Vincent) and the spot-on guitar and production of Mike MacAllister. Check out the awesome sci-fi video for their single "Robot", also included on our Newsonic Compilation! http://youtu.be/YEb8f5WZ8DM
