Diet Cig

Diet Cig is a pop rock band from New Paltz, NY, fronted by Alex Luciano with Noah Bowman of Earl Boykins (Forged Artifacts) on drums. The five charming songs on the debut “Over Easy” EP, written by Alex in the comforts of her bedroom, capture the innocence of adolescence and infatuation. “Over Easy” was recorded on Halloween 2014 with Christopher Daly at Salvation Recording Co. in New Paltz, NY (Porches, Quarterbacks, Earl Boykins) and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music. “Over Easy” was released digitally and on cassette in February 2015 with the support of Father/Daughter Records.


In August of 2014, Zoë Allaire Reynolds put out a 5-song EP under the moniker Kississippi, and later that month, Colin James Kupson moved to Philadelphia to attend The University of the Arts (for Music…

Coolzey stepped into the public eye around 2005 with a demo album and a series of exploratory DIY tours with rapper/comedian and friend Schaffer the Darklord. Interest spread quickly and Coolzey found himself touring alongside hip-hop legends from Brand Nubian and Jurassic 5 as well as punk rock heroes like Dead Milkmen. Coolzey’s first album “The Honey” was released in 2010 and second official full-length “Hit Factory” in 2013. In these albums as well as in a number of EPs, collaborations, and side projects, he finds his niche as a songwriter, navigating hip-hop, rock, punk, and pop in the spirit of genre…

James Leg / Bohannons / Bad Cologne

James Leg

“James Leg, growler, shouter, composer, and Fender Rhodes finger-fucker, of the Black Diamond Heavies, steps out with some friends for more songs of hedonistic excess, crazy ass women, and southern salvation.”


Bad Cologne

“Nothing like the smell of cheap beer and crappy amps that are about to catch on fire and die! The Brian Jonestown Massacre can’t drunkenly hold a candle to these jackasses. Plus, they do airbrush shirts at their shows! Top that!”

White Chapel

Having spent several years lauded as one of the frontrunners in their genre, in 2012 Whitechapel stand as a defining force in contemporary heavy music. Building dramatically on the trademarked bludgeon of their first three releases, with Whitechapel the Tennessean sextet have inarguably delivered their most intense, dynamic, and downright hostile record to date. Drenched in atmospheric darkness, the record is also rife with gripping melodies that drag the listener in to the tumult, willing or otherwise, and across its ten tracks it is infused with an emotional depth that pointedly separates the band from the plethora of two-dimensional mosh-starters that have sprung up in their wake. “These songs are some of the best material we have released to date, and the whole vibe of the record compelled us to self-title it,” states guitarist Alex Wade. “With every record we strive for something different – we’re always going to stay true to what Whitechapel is, but we want to evolve and do something that is fresh and engaging both for ourselves and for the people who support us.”
