-Nestled in Portland, Oregon's predominately white and hipster culture is all-Asian American dance rock band, The Slants. Rather than adopting the usual departure points of Portland's music scene - alt-folk rock, shoegazer music, indie pop - The Slants took their influence from grabbing onto the corners of foundational 80s synth-pop music and blending it with modern dance rock sensibilities. They call this amalgamation of contagious, energetic, and danceable music "Chinatown Dance Rock."The Slants continue to combine their 80s music heritage, floor-filling dance beats, and cultural experiences that provide the backbone for every note. The result is a collection of undeniably catchy songs that will make you want to dance. The Slants manage to combine heart and musicality, a combination that is becoming increasingly rare. The Slants have arrived and are ready to induct you into the Slants Army. It's time for you to listen.

--Tremor Low comes from fucking Oakland, California.
They sound like synthesizers, drum machines, delay and distortion pedals in exactly that order.
Tremor Low has been making music since 2009, and have played venues like Great American Music Hall, Bottom of the Hill and Popscene. In 2013, Tremor Low was the resident band at the Beautiful Buzzz SXSW showcase and have released multiple videos to great acclaim. At home, we've shared the stage with Holy Ghost, Moving Units, The Trims, and Parallels.
The band has always been Don Bellenger and Fabian Paredes, and has recently added Herve Gross and Ariel Utz Wirnsberger to synthesizing duties. Tremor Low has always had a flair for the unconventional and is currently pursuing indie band glory in the form of video game scoring while still playing packed shows to audiences in the greater Bay Area.

-Heartbreaking vocals, dreamy guitar, and luscious drums. SEED LING is an indie pop trio with electronica roots coming out of The SF Bay. Planted when singer Rachel, who had been a solo act for years, wanted to create a bigger show with live instruments. Their affecting sounds come out pure and unhurried to give space for your harmless swaying that it results in.
