- Philadelphia musicians Birdie Busch and Todd Erk (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Hoots and Hellmouth) seek to make great music, inspire people, and see what happens. Critics from American Songwriter to Village Voice have found Birdie of kindred spirit from everyone from Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett to American Gothic writer Eudora Welty, and seem to just keep referring to what she does as her own thing and appreciating that strange place where it resides. It’s this comfort to contain multitudes that keeps her energized and curious, putting out music on adventurous independents like Bar/None, Styles Upon Styles, and most recently Perpetual Doom with the help and collaboration of Todd Erk and other co-conspirators. They are currently recording work from their Sparkle Bones Studio in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia.
- Floating Action is a band from Black Mountain, North Carolina, founded by Seth Kauffman. Kauffman is the band's sole lyricist, songwriter, recorder and producer, in addition to playing almost all the music. Kauffman has been called "the underappreciated genius of the Asheville music scene” and Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Kauffman's frequent collaborator, called him "the most underrated person in music”.
