Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar was born ten years ago, when Tillmann was living in Minneapolis, playing guitar-based indie rock. The Har Mar idea, he says, was "a reaction to boring indie rock and how people were taking themselves way too seriously, and any aspect of playing and touring was no fun after a while, and I realized if I go to a dance party and sing an R. Kelly song on a couch, the girls are going to go fucking crazy. So I started transferring that to the stage and doing more R&B oriented songs and it really was a no-brainer after I'd done it a few times. Like, 'why don't I just make this gross, why don't I just start writing songs like that?" And as soon as I did, it was obvious, it was like a light bulb went off and I went on my way and got more and more aggressive, and the shows became this weird exercise in sexual tension, and I really learned how to play with that fire and make it work for me.
Frankie Rose
Frankie Rose
As a founding member of the Vivian Girls, and a drummer/vocalist in both Crystal Stils and Dum Dum Girls, Frankie Rose has been an integral part of Brooklyn's still vital music scene for years. Her highly anticipated solo project not only reflects the aesthetic earmarks of her musical past, but reveals her as a fully-formed artist in her own right.

Haunted by the ghosts of Brill Building, and equal measures of 80s and 90s pop, Frankie's music evokes a spooky, lovely charm. Her ethereal, yet affectation-free vocal melodies, swirling in a sea of church-like harmonies over a bed of tambourines, bells, and propulsive drumming, recall such artists as Eilzabeth Fraser and Black Tambourine. It is both timeless and immediate; deeply personal and completely universal.

Ms. Rose's self-debut titled debut, which hit the streets in July of 2010, is moody and subtle dream pop, as if Cocteau Twins and Spacemen 3 tracked a split LP with some help from Phil Spector. The record receive much acclaim, making it onto Rough Trade's top 100 of the year. Cited by Pitchfork as "lean, elegant music that practically glows in the face of exceptional fuss," and named one of New York Times Style Magazine's "Ones to Watch," Frankie Rose is truly a force to be reckoned with.

Look out for her sophomore LP, coming soon on Slumberland Records.

The Velveteins
The Velveteins
Hailing from sunny Edmonton AB, The Velveteins are a rock n’ roll band consisting of primary songwriters Spencer Morphy (vocals, guitar) and Addison Hiller (percussion). Their latest work ‘A Hot Second With The Velveteins’ was produced by Lincoln Parish (Cage the Elephant) and has been described as “…a collision of the Kinks and the Libertines, rollicking garage, moody surf […and] pop classicism with a rough edge.” (EXCLAIM!). Their unique brand of heavy guitar pop has translated into raucous and energetic live shows opening for large acts such as USS, Milo Green.
