Swell Foop
-from Berkeley, CA
-Swell Foop is a four piece indie rock band hailing from Berkeley, California. The band is composed of Sophia Shen and Miranda Loyer on lead vocals, guitar, and bass, Caleb Marsh on lead guitar and bass, and Zion Chheang on drums. Both songwriters in their own right, Sophia and Miranda have worked together to formulate an all-original set for the band, inspired by such artists as Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Soccer Mommy, while incorporating each of their unique styles into the mix. The resulting songs are candid, loving, and occasionally daring explorations of the trials and triumphs of young adulthood.

-from Portland, OR
-Helens is a Shoegaze / Dream Pop quartet based out of Portland, Oregon. After several years and EPs they have released a new album of melancholic anthems to soundtrack an escape to anywhere else but here.

The new album, Somewhere In Nowhere, was recorded in 2020 by Corey Coffman (Gleemer) and was released on November 18th, 2022. with help from Portland all-star label, Bud Tapes. Somewhere In Nowhere infuses the band's unique Shoegaze/Post-Rock/Alternative mixture with lusher melodies and more Dream Pop sensibility than previous output. The recent expansion of the lineup to a four piece with added guitar textures has also widened the band's scope which carries the listener from wistful wash to searing sonics.
