Helado Negro, the musical outlet of Roberto Carlos Lange, is a blending of cultures and sounds -- electronic and indie rock music infused with Latin rhythms and vibes. Here, Helado Negro, plays "Lechuguilla," from the recently released album, 'Canta Lechuza.'
Fronted by Andrew Kenny (American Analog Set, Broken Social Scene) and including members of Matt Pond PA, the Wooden Birds play a brand of rock that at once sounds as akin to 70s era rock like Fleetwood Mac as it does to more modern fare like Wilco. Here the band plays "False Alarm," from their latest album, 'Two Matchsticks.'
Brooklyn's Me You Us Them plays straight ahead rock music with plenty of loud guitars and a driving rhythm section. Here they play "As Of Now" off of their album, 'Post-Data.'

Brooklyn Singer-songwriters Annie Lynch (of Annie and the Beekeepers) and Michaela Anne make acoustic folk music graced with honey-sweet voices that are flush with emotion.

Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside play a well-blended mix of roots, blues, country, jazz, and rock. At first, it may seem anachronistic, but Ford's edgy voice pulls it all together and into the present in a way that makes it as vital as any contemporary rock outfit.
Dzian! is a band that plays retro Asian garage-pop. While mixing in vintage sounds and vibes, their sound is vibrantly original.
Richard Buckner plays a deep, soulful hybrid of rock and country. His powerful voice conveys a wisdom that compliments the poignancy of his lyrics and is backed by a forceful guitar style that adds urgency to his songs.
