Somewhere between the black soil of earth and the void, exists the music of Laughing Eye Weeping Eye. These are songs that travel through the unknown and esoteric. Like her Tarot readings, Rebecca Schoenecker leads us through the arcane, with lush vocals from gothic cathedrals and harmonium played in secret rooms. Patrick Holbrook, her consort, adds organ inspired keyboard drones and strings via ukelin and turkish spike fiddle. The mundane mixes with the alchemical; the flesh transverses the metaphysical. The result is chilling and sparse. LEYE WEYE's third full length album "Once Was You" is coming out on Moon Glyph in late Summer 2015. Their Medieval-inspired second LP, "Beway" was released by Hairy Spider Legs in 2013. They have toured in North America since 2010, sharing bills with Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat dan Singa, Spires That in the Sunset Rise, The Cherry Blossoms, Circuit des Yeux, Happy Jawbone Family Band, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Mind Over Mirrors, Ashley Paul, Ruby Fray, and many others.

Loom is Brooke Manning, a Toronto resident who has been performing in various incarnations under the moniker since 2010. After a short hiatus from performing in 2012 and 2013, Brooke started writing again in 2014 and has been working with John Harry (Gates, Demonic Possessor), and Todd MacDonald (Silver Pools, The Winks) to further develop the sound of her minimal, slow-core work. The result has inspired a heavier, denser form of Brooke’s minimalist style. The band is due to record the sophomore album in the fall of 2015.

Picastro began in Toronto in 1998 with Liz Hysen, Stephanie Vittas and Kurt Newman. Since then, the band has continued in many forms with its current band members consisting of Liz Hysen, Nick Storring, Germaine Liu and Matthew Ramolo. Picastro has toured extensively over the past 10 years in North America and Europe.
