OOLALA
OOLALA
OOLALA is the greatest Space RockRoll band in the UNIVERSE. Free to inter-dimensionally transcend the gravitational fabric of the cosmos and experience all points in space, all forms of energy, all states of matter, and all times in time, fully and simultaneously, their vibrations are the stuffs from which everything is made and un-made. Led by the singer RUMI KITCHEN of Johnny Showcase and the Mystic Ticket fame, with LUX NAUTA, and Vincent "THE LION" Federici, the group announces their international debut "The New RockRoll Cosmology", a 12" 45rpm gold shiny record to be released on The Giving Groove label on May 27th, 2017. Produced by Rumi Kitchen and Tim Sonnefeld(Usher, The Roots, Mary J. Blige), the record is a heavy funk riff space RockRoll masterwork, and has been called "the best rock record to come out of Philly in a lonnnng time." The four songs cover a broad range of galactic themes, from leaving the known universe through a black hole in "Falling Out of the Universe", to a surrealist domestic space relationship gone wrong in "Get Yo Ass in That Space Camaro". Sonically and spiritually, the 3 members of the band, RUMI, LUX, and V the LION, form a RockRoll TRIANGLE of energy, allowing them to spawn a GOLDEN EGG at their every performance.

Minka
Minka
After releasing a critically acclaimed self-titled EP in 2013, Minka took the Philadelphia club circuit by storm , and even shared the stage with Andrew W.K. The band is now gearing up to drop a followup album, The Republican, recorded live at the legendary MilkBoy studios with producer Joe Logic (of Chill Moody fame). Drawing influences from various artists, including Talking Heads, Prince, Parliament Funkadelic, and David Bowie,the band combines punchy drums, vintage airy synths, crunchy guitars, and an irreverent white-trash swagger into an infectious blend of electrified indie rock.
Carol Cleveland Sings
Carol Cleveland Sings
Carol Cleveland Sings is the psychedelic bedroom pop duo of Thomas Hughes and Gretchen Lohse. The project originated as a way for Hughes (known for his role as singer and songwriter of The Spinto Band and member of Elephant 6 group, The Music Tapes) to catalog song ideas and recording experiments which he released sparingly on CD-rs or homemade cassettes.

During a month of self-imposed writing exercises, Hughes accumulated more than an album's worth of material. He then enlisted the help of Philadelphia musician / artist Gretchen Lohse to help finish and refine the recordings. These collection of songs became "Effervescent Lure" which is their debut album together.
