Even t Info:
Serena Maneesh (sometimes spelled Serena-Maneesh or shortened to S-M) is an alternative rockband from Oslo, Norway. Intense noise and pulsating rhythms often reveal hidden harmonies and melodies, while crooked and distorted blues-riffs are replaced by psychedelic strings and vague vibes, flutes and organs. The structure of the songs is often unorthodox w/ angelic voices and primal screams. The long awaited sophomore album is set to be released in March 2010 on 4AD.
Riding in on oceanic waves of drone and immense muscular drums, enter the spectral pop duo ZAZA. While associated with their peers in Brooklyn's recent exploding indie-pop/shoegaze scene, ZAZA sonically contrast from their guitar-pop brethren in favor of something darker, more mysterious driven by haunting, ethereal vocals and rolling, cavernous rhythms. Recently signing to Kanine Records, the duo released their debut EP "Cameo."
Cruel Black Dove
Cruel Black Dove is a buzz-worthy female-fronted Brooklyn outfit whose music is uniquely hypnotic, characterized by an eerie, electro backdrop, accompanied by strangely soulful vocals. They set the stage on fire with their brilliant rhythmic mixture of industrial, dark wave and indie rock, ominous red lighting, fuzzed out bass, and unpredictable ferocity. Their latest "The Myth and the Sum" drops in January 2010.
