Half Gringa
Half Gringa
Half Gringa started as the solo songwriting project of Izzy Olive. An emotional scab-picker, her work explores the confluence of Latinx and Midwestern identity. Her first LP, Gruñona, reveals a palimpsest of wounds upon scars. Contemplative and choleric, all manner of memorials to the past are revealed—mountains, dive bars, orchards, trains, expressways, tiny kitchens, Chicago, Caracas, and outer space. With a full band, Half Gringa's debut coaxes confession after confession out of Olive's insistent guitar and undaunted vocals; Andres Fonseca's tender bass lines; and Sam Cantor's impish, mesmerizing guitar. Sean Saville's rumbling drum work gives the arrangements momentum and they are crowned by Ivan Pyzow's trumpet swagger. Simultaneously boastful, scathing, forgiving, and hopeful, Gruñona confronts the human ache of wanting and curse of taking. It recognizes that an identity is a journey that names you.
Thanya Iyer
Thanya Iyer
In the year MMXII, they began recording in a church with a moldy ceiling, a moldy basement, and of course a bedroom made out of pews. "Do You Dream?” is an experiment of experimentation and songs coming together. Some might call it "songmentation". Or even, if you look at it as experimentation + songs augmenting each other you might say "Saugmentation”.
Ze'ev
Ze'ev is a band that relies on unpredictability. Our sound has been attributed to many genres and bands but we believe experimental is the best route to go.

OHMME (FKA HOMME) IS AN EXPERIMENT IN VOICE AND SOUND BY SIMA CUNNINGHAM AND MACIE STEWART. THEY JOINED FORCES IN 2014, INSPIRED BY THE FREE IMPROVISATIONAL MUSIC SCENE IN CHICAGO AND INFLUENCED BY AVANT-GARDE ROCK. THEIR COMBINED VOCAL AND MUSICAL TALENTS YIELD AN INCREDIBLE DICHOTOMY OF HARMONY AND CHAOS THAT LEAVES THE AUDIENCE WANTING MORE. OHMME HAS BEEN COMPARED TO PJ HARVEY, NIRVANA, AND KATE BUSH, BUT THEIR INNATE CHEMISTRY CREATES SOMETHING UNIQUELY SATISFYING AND WHOLLY DIFFERENT FROM THEIR PREDECESSORS.
