The music of Stephaniesid is both calming and haunting. The four-piece group from Asheville, NC mixes gentle pop rhythms with simple piano, guitar, some strings and subtle synth flourishes to create a hazy backdrop for singer Stephanie Morgan's seductive voice. It's a beguiling mix of sounds with unexpected sonic turns as hushed, serene songs erupt suddenly into dark, explosive jams.
Led by accordionist/vocalist Rex Hussmann and drummer Jeremy Gustin, Brooklyn-based The Rex Complex pounds roots ruckus songs into people's nervous system often resulting in a joyous shock. According to the Boston Phoenix the band "specializes in voodoo psych-blues tantrums (with a smidge of Primus)."
"Electric Laser People take on old-school rap style in a whimsical manner by draping absurd lyrics over minimal electronic sound effects and guitar crunches, like a sonic merging of Ratatat and Licensed to Ill."

"1980s inspired dance rock with a good beat and hooks a crowd can sing too."
