San Diego based musician, Rafter Roberts's musical exploits have been (and continue to be) many and varied. It was all the way back in New York that Rafter realized what direction he needed to head in: He turned from the antagonism and nihilism of noisy punk to the populism and catchy congruence of pop, meanwhile smuggling in all the frantic noise and feedback squall to mash with that pop syrup. The music released under Rafter’s name is a kaleidoscopic fountain of color and beats and joy. It’s smart, beautifully-produced pop and R&B jams as seen through the lens of a man with a deep well of experimental and noise chops.


Gary Wilson emerged from New York's DIY movement with 1977's proto-New Wave masterpiece You Think You Really Know Me, an extraordinary record which has been known to suck unprepared new listeners in like a drug and never let go. Shortly after its limited release its creator simply vanished.

In the 25-year wake before he was found again, Gary's small-town opus had spread by word-of-mouth and indie radio to inspire a whole new generation of musicians and producers with his bizarre songs and personal musical vision. His cult following includes Beck, who shouts him out in "Where It's At (Two Turntables And A Microphone)", The Roots’ ?uestlove, Simpsons creator Matt Groening, and of course, Stones Throw’s Peanut Butter Wolf.
