Yowler
Yowler
Yowler is centered around the songwriting of Maryn Jones, who comes from many places but currently lives in Columbus, Ohio. While spending most of her time fronting the energetic and pop-driven rock outfit All Dogs and touring as a multi-instrumentalist in the indie/psych-folk collective Saintseneca, Jones uses Yowler as an outlet to write and record songs from home in the quieter, more solitary parts of the year. Her debut effort, The Offer, was released in March of 2015 on Brooklyn-based label Double Double Whammy. On The Offer, Jones uses distant sounding guitars, heavily effected synths, and bell-like vocals layered with wispy harmonies to paint a picture of a vast somberness and self-reflection. The song are below-the-surface ruminations about the things we don’t always know how to talk about to each other.
Swanning
Swanning
Swanning is the musical project of Cynthia Schemmer (guitarist in Radiator Hospital, managing editor of She Shreds Magazine) who released her debut 12" EP Drawing Down the Moon on Salinas Records this year. She is joined by Jeff Bolt (Swearin', Radiator Hospital), Ali Donohue (Fleabite), and Jen Twigg (The Ambulars, Fraktur).
The Goodbye Party
The Goodbye Party
After spending five years leading DC/Philly-based power-pop band The Ambulars, Michael Cantor needed an outlet for his other songs: the bedroom recordings - noisy lo-fi experiments, meandering somber songs with auxiliary instrumentation (bowed guitar, lap steel guitar, tape collages) all recorded by Cantor in isolation.

He relocated to Philadelphia and started releasing home-recordings as The Goodbye Party. This solo project he would later fully flesh out to create his first full length album under that project, Silver Blues. A true labor of love, Cantor recorded most of the album himself, aided by drummer Joey Doubek (Pinkwash). Learning about recording and production as he went, he spent the better part of a year closed up in a makeshift studio, augmenting his album with cassette and analog 4-track recordings.

The result is an album that exists within its own universe, one that weaves in and out of itself, floats and sinks, held together by its own internal logic. Silver Blues is full of lush orchestral strings, built on top of degrading cassettes and feedback and ecstatic power-pop anthems that bleed out into vocal dirges. Silver Blues is out December 1 via Salinas Records.
