“To say that the newest release from Coco Columbia is one hell of a wild ride would be an understatement."
-Eleven PDX Magazine (2016)

"Coco Columbia's sophomore album, When the Birds Begin to Walk, reveals itself as an astonishing 10-track gallery piece."
-Willamette Week (2016)

Music school dropout Coco Columbia burst onto the Portland music scene in 2014 with her debut, Kickstarter-funded album “The Weight.” Columbia set aside her passion for jazz drumming to teach herself how to write songs, record, make beats, and play piano. Having never performed live, she put together a group of young Portland jazz musicians to learn her material.

Columbia released her sophomore record, “When the Birds Begin to Walk” last August to critical acclaim in the Portland music scene. Her music fuses infectious indie-pop melodies, off-kilter rhythmic feels, dreamy-eyed electro-soul soundscapes, and jazzy harmony to create her own brand of bumpin' future-pop.
Desert Mountain Tribe
Desert Mountain Tribe
Establishing themselves in the current psych-rock scene in 2014 with the release of their debut 'DMT EP', the London based trio Desert Mountain Tribe have subsequently proved themselves a formidable live presence after sharing stages with the likes of Toy, Wovenhand, The Wytches and Damo Suzuki and performing at several festivals. That 12" EP generated positive coverage from many media pundits, while lead track 'Take A Ride' attracted airplay on BBC 6Music (including a 'Recommends' slot). Recorded direct to tape at Shaken Oak Studios, Oxon and mastered by Brett Orrison of The Black Angels, the scope of its four songs clearly demonstrated that this was a band to watch. Its release followed the appearance of another early group effort on 'Reverb Conspiracy Vol 2' (released jointly by Fuzz Club Records and Austin Psych Fest).

Battery
BATTERY is a solo drum set and electronics project at the intersection of jazz, electronic music, and West African percussion. The music elaborates on simple song forms, including jazz standards and video game music, to create complex rhythms that recontextualize each song. BATTERY explores the boundaries between human and machine through improvisation and the organic qualities of the drum.
