5 Lb. Piranha, Suffer For Your Art

Thawind Mills of 5 Lb. Piranha writes songs with heavy metal and punk elements reminiscent of Metallica and with lyrics that can be likened to Tenacious D in this 2013 album, Suffer For Your Art (2013).

Lela Caldwell is L3LA

Lela Caldwell, front woman and songwriter, brings us her self-produced album that mixes electronic beats and rock music topped with angsty vocals in L3LA (2014).

Tamika Handy, Universe

Following her debut album, Open Diary (2011), Tamika Handy gives us another set of soulful songs on Universe (2014) with guitar, cello, vocals, and percussion, each having an engaging message.

The Flying Buttresses, We Are Strange

The story of The Flying Buttresses began in a smaller project known as Jillian and the Whole World (2010), where Jillian Gomez would pound relentlessly on her piano and sing dark monologues of lost love and frustration.
