LVL UP — guitarists Mike Caridi and Dave Benton, bassist Nick Corbo, and drummer Greg Rutkin — is a true collaboration, a band that takes the stylistically distinct ideas of four members and brings them together into something new. Caridi, Benton, and Corbo write and sing equally, bringing their work to the group to be fully realized, resulting in an album built on different perspectives but a common drive.

Palm — While Palm, a four-piece from upstate New York, have made their home in the same Hudson scene as experimental art rockers Buke and Gase, Palm’s story started when guitarists/vocalists Kasra Kurt and Eve Alpert developed a musical kinship while attending the same high school. The pair decided to continue their education at Bard College and quickly founded Palm with drummer Hugo Stanley. Their earliest material was entirely instrumental and concentrated on the interplay between Kasra and Eve's thick, mechanical guitar parts against Hugo's sparse, loose drum phrases. Not long after that, the band added Gerasimos Livitsanos on bass and has refined its sound over the past few years with a focus on detail, density, and heaviness. With a palette informed by punk, metal, and noise as well as jazz and bossa nova, they utilize traditional rock instruments to create playful experiments that, using unpredictable time signatures, move up and down, back and forth, and all over the map.

Young Mammals — Despite all the racket in their pop, there is a quiet charisma that radiates from Young Mammals, something they may not even be aware of. The childhood friends of Cley Miller (guitar) and brothers Jose (bass) and Carlos Sanchez (vocals, guitar) have been have been making music together since middle school, first with an EP as The Dimes, then followed by Young Mammals' full-length Carrots and two seven-inches. All modestly released, these records have hit hard for those lucky enough to come across them, resulting in invitations to play at CMJ, SXSW, Noise Pop, and Iceland Airwaves.
