Perfect Pussy, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan and Green Dreams

Perfect Pussy is a band that plays hard AND plays even harder.

“On stage, front woman Meredith Graves has the charisma of a star in the making.” -Billboard

I Have Lost All Desire for Feeling, instantly evokes basement shows rank with fresh sweat, dark except for strings of christmas lights, windows shaking, overloaded PA bleating away, and the band across the jampacked room discernible only by the occasional upward-flung limb. If you make it to one of this Syracuse band’s two outer-borough shows this week, expect to leave with bangs dripping, ears keening, and heart pounding.” -Paper Mag

“One of the boldest new rock bands.” -Pitchfork

“These punk kids from the mean streets of Syracuse, New York, deliver high-energy slabs of mayhem-friendly post punk noise, a wall of guitar and Casio. Meredith Graves knows how to run her mosh pit like a dictator runs a birthday party.” -Rolling Stone

“One of the best debuts you’re likely to hear this year.” -Stereogum

Marbin, Crossing the Event Horizon and Celtic Panda

Marbin: http://www.marbinmusic.com/
“The interaction between guitarist Dani Rabin, and saxophonist Danny Markovitch is magical. Marbin is pulling the most sensitive melodies from the deepest parts of their soul, and it’s up to the listener to allow the music to reach the same areas within.”

Crossing the Event Horizon
“… this band constructs a brand of creative psychonaut progressive metal like you’ve never heard before. The music is mind blowing and original, making it a must listen. The only other project that comes close to the sound CTEH brings is Exivious (Textures / Cynic side project), and even that’s a stretch. No metal band has ever broken into the other side quite like this.”

Trioscapes (Dan Briggs of Between The Buried And Me), Whatever and  Dumb Waiter

TRIOSCAPES is an experimental jazz/fusion band from Greensboro, Atlanta, North Carolina (USA), started in the summer of 2011 when Dan BRIGGS (bass, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME) contacted Walter FANCOURT (Tenor Saxophone/Flute, CASUAL CURIOUS, BRAND NEW LIFE) and Matt LYNCH (Drums/Electronics, EYRIS) about working up a rendition of the MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA classic ”Celestial Terrestrial Commuters” and working on a few original ideas with the intent of playing a one-off show. However, after rehearsing the material and playing the show, finding the music demanding and fun to perform, the trio decided to continue as a group. The end of summer 2011 found them writing a few more songs and they eventually recorded their full length album in the first week of October with Jamie King in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. ”Separate Realities” was released on the 8th of May 2012 world-wide through Metal Blade Records.

TRIOSCAPES cites MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, KING CRIMSON, RETURN TO FOREVER, and FRANK ZAPPA as their influences, elements of which bands are apparent in their sound, albeit in a more heavy fusion fashion. The band is likely to appeal to both fans of jazz/fusion but also prog-metal/heavy fusion.
