Johnny Marr: Hi Hello Johnny Marr, co-founding member of The Smiths, says: “This is the most complete thing I’ve ever done. There are no songs I’m not sure about. And for me as a listener, it’s made up of entirely the music I like, and have liked.” Can't beat that recommendation, give a listen to "Hi Hello" and hear for yourself!
Chromatics: Black Walls Chromatics started out as a noise-laden outfit founded by Adam Miller in 2001 in Seattle. Eventually Miller forged a new path into an electronic sound and a full band line up.

Tunng: ABOP Tunng's upcoming album (dropping in August) finds the group in its original line up. Crafting songs that bring out the best in all of its members, we'll experience the most electronic-leaning collection of songs to date. "ABOP" brings the moog out front and center.
Kodacrome: Slender Elissa LeCoque and Ryan Casey make up Kodacrome, infusing fragmented pop with a warm electronic pulse. Elissa plays piano, seeding most of the melodies and progressions, while Ryan re-imagines the work in his laboratory of analog equipment.
