Mount Peru, the band that Bostonbandcrush.com cites as "pioneers of Cosmic Americana", mix extraterrestrial elements to forge torch songs from Mars, dust bowl ballads from Jupiter, and powerpop from Pluto. For all of the familiar signifiers, it's clear after the first few notes that this earth is not their home. Their narcotic hymns reverberate through the atmosphere like signals sent through space hoping to make contact - a pirate transmission from a far away radio, on some other heartbroken planet just like this one.

Great Elk is an indie-folk outfit founded by New York/Alaska based songwriter Paul Basile and guitarist Patrick Hay. Now a five-piece band featuring Bryan Trenis, Tommy Harron and Adam Christgau, they've spent the last several years developing a strong following in New York City and touring throughout the Northeast US. They released their debut, self-titled EP last year which garnered attention from Paste Magazine, Magnet Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and more. Great Elk quietly released another EP in May 2011 (entitled February, online release only) and in June 2011 began work on their debut full length with engineer/producer D. James Goodwin (Norah Jones, The Bravery, Bobby).

oston's Audrey Ryan is willing to accept the label "singer/songwriter," but there's more to her thick compositions than just a girl and a guitar. Her sort-of lo-fi pieces are quirky and carnivalesque but not hokey; she's a multi-instrumentalist who brings all manner of additions ("kid megaphone, weird harp thing," according to the liner notes of her most recent full-length) to the mix. Her voice is equal parts powerful and awkward, giving life to lyrics about which you could say the same  in the best possible way. -Pittsburgh City Paper
