Born out the same Toronto DIY scene that spawned Metz/Soupcans/HSY/Greys, Odonis Odonis cut their teeth at the now defunct Buzz Garage, where they built a solid foundation as a crushing live band. Onstage, Tzenos (vocals, guitar) is flanked by Denholm Whale (bass) and Jarod Gibson (drums). The live show is the point where their diverging influences and hypnotic visual aesthetic collide. 2011’s Hollandaze showcased the band’s ability to create something that was uniquely theirs out of a patchwork of influences as disparate as surf, industrial and old b-movie horror films. No one label fit, so “industrial surf-gaze” was coined. The group returned in 2013 with their Better EP, upping the intensity of their frantic post-punk by focusing in on their talent for tuneful abrasion.

Their follow up and Polaris Prize Nominated Album, Hard Boiled Soft Boiled finds Odonis Odonis pushing their sound into new territory, because much like the hypnotic spiral that came to be associated with the band’s debut record Hollandaze, Odonis Odonis do not follow a linear path.


Brooklyn Based Ice Balloons’ eight-song debut EP came out in October of 2013, featuring the track Night Slave that had a video release on Vice/Noisey the following month. The band is a hodgepodge of musicians -Sean Powell (FuckEmos), Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), Dan Scinta, Rob Bryn (Wild Yaks) Giselle Reiber (Midnight Masses), B.A. Miale and a common fly on vocals – but more in a garage punk synth-noise vein than any of the bands from which the members derive.


Pulp Culture is a dominant progressive rock band from Detroit with serious convictions to the advancement of Michigan's DIY movement. Their songs exude a close balance of raw energy and unrepressed passion, presenting complex emotions within esoteric sci-fi lyrics and moving melodies.


We're SWEAT. We're 2 people. We create a lot of sound, but we're dynamic too. Not always JUST loud. We play hard. We play dark. Shrill.
