GENIASS PRESENTS: Blue Sky Black Death + Sister Crayon
BLUE SKY BLACK DEATH:

BSBD has redefined hip hop through their kaleidoscopic perception of music as a landscape; music as a dimension to construct and build upwards and out. Their name borrowed from the skydiving term, beauty before death, mirrors their longevity and ability to bring back to life, dead and forgotten dimensions.

SISTER CRAYON:

An off and on recluse, Terra Lopez spent countless hours in her Northern California bedroom each day, recording hundreds of gritty, personal demos with her classical guitar and MPC. Staring at the ceiling of her apartment, she taught herself how to sing by studying vocalists Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Jeff Buckley. It was during this time that Lopez started to form the sound and scope of what would become Sister Crayon. Shortly after, Lopez met Dani Fernandez and the two bonded over hip-hop and the MPC. Inseparable, the duo started collaborating and word spread quickly about Sister Crayon on the West Coast. Over the years, the project has undergone numerous lineup changes and been bolstered by the addition of live keys and drums. With drummer Omar Barajas in the mix, Sister Crayon's live show is passionate, dynamic and emotionally resonant.

Since Sister Crayon's debut release Bellow in 2011, Lopez and Fernandez have worked relentlessly to reinvent the project, with the focus shifting back towards its founding members. The two have honed in on the electronic side of things, centering more on Lopez's powerful, diverse vocal range while utilizing heavy beats and haunting melodies. Having toured nationally for most of 2012 with the likes of Built to Spill, The Album Leaf and Maps & Atlases, Sister Crayon went into the studio in late September to record the Cynic EP. The record is at times raw and inconsolable, inspired by Lopez's absent father and daily frustrations with the past. Sister Crayon's new body of work is unapologetic in its intensity, allowing them to create their most revealing work to date. Upon the release of Cynic, Sister Crayon plans to unveil a fresh live sound with tour dates in the Spring while also gearing up for their second full-length, set to be released in late 2013.
