Whirr - the shoegaze outfit which shares a member with Deafheaven.
Whirr's new release: a new album, Around, on July 9, 2013.
WHIRR (formerly Whirl) generates suspenseful songs of soothing, razor sharp guitar textures backed by soft, cooling vocals. The band's supercharged spirit rejuvenates the '90s shoegaze sound, providing a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. WHIRR's wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listening ears into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang perfectly in the balance. The group's celestial lean has been described as "if My Bloody Valentine decided to cooperate with Sonic Youth," and has drawn comparison to influential acts such as Slowdive, Lush, Ride and The Cocteau Twins

from Philadelphia

NOTHING create a serene funnel of noise. The vocals are ambient, but barely audible with lyrics that preach of broken homes, lost youth, and time spent in isolation. The guitars bleed and blend into a single powerful wave, and the rhythms create a thunderous repeating pattern that puts you in a seemingly opiate induced slumber.

Trevor - Drums/Vocals
Jackson - Guitar/Vocals
Dylan - Guitar
Daniel - Bass/Vocals
Lycus is a doom metal band hailing from Oakland CA.

Lycus is a doom metal band originally formed in the fall of 2008 near Sacramento, CA. The next year saw very few live performances, the self-release of a two song demo, and a multitude of line-up changes. They disbanded in late 2009 after encountering difficulty maintaining a solid line-up. After relocating to the San Francisco bay area, the founding members resurrected the band along with a new bassist and guitarist to record and release "Demo MMXI" in May 2011. This demo was released through Graceless Recordings on a limited run of 200 cassettes. In January 2012, the demo was remastered and released on vinyl through Flenser Records. Lycus entered Earhammer Studios in November 2012 to record their full length debut, "Tempest" which will see a Summer 2013 release on 20 Buck Spin.
