Oakland’s myrmyr are currently touring the East Coast in Support of their new album “The Amber Sea”, released on the Digitalis label. Marielle also performs under the solo moniker Darwin’s Bitch (cd on Digitalis) and Agnes has a solo release on Aphonia. “myrmyr is Agnes Szelag and Marielle Jakobsons making electroacoustic songs on many instruments including the violin, cello, voice, gezhong, piano & harp among others. We combine experimental recording techniques, production, and electronics with song forms often inspired by our common Baltic heritage. The result is a unique style of electroacoustic music, reminiscent of Scandinavian folklore, lullabies, dramatic film scores, electronic and improvised music. Agnes and Marielle met at Mills College, where they both received their MFA from Mils in Electronic Music in 2006.” – band bio

Chris Forsyth:

"Chris Forsyth is a founding member of Peeesseye, an iconoclastictranscontinental amalgam of minimalist rock, noise, folk, drone, psych, improv, sound poetry, and absurdity. He frequently performs solo on both electric and acoustic 6- and 12-string guitars and is a member of the elusive and rarely spotted experimental group Phantom Limb & Bison. Other collaborators have included guitarists Tetuzi Akiyama, Ernesto Diaz-Infante and many others. He released his second solo record, Dreams, in September 2009 on Evolving Ear." – bio

Chasing Arethusa:

A new(ish) group whose members have been in such West Philly favorites as Beware the Blunted Needle, Lesser Known Neutrinos and others. However, you’ll be reminded of early Steeleye Span more than The Raincoats when listening to this trio. They call it chamberpunk, and that works as well as anything. “A love story with a sidecar. Joe P. became a luthier, fell for Eleanor P., and built her a viola. They raised Abby P. from a freshly dug grave. There now were three. After 48 hours of deliberation, a band name was chosen. The name Arethusa was spotted on a street sign in a cemetery. Turns out, Arethusa is a water nymph who hails from Greek mythology. She was chased by an aroused river god. Artemis transformed her into a stream which then flowed underground.” – band bio
