Mike Krol is an American musician and graphic designer based in Los Angeles who makes scuzzy, raw, fairly lo-fi garage-rock-punk.
"Simplistic lyrics about suburban boredom and youthful abandon? Tick. Muffled, loudspeaker-style vocals? Tick. Guitar that may as well have been played with a cheesegrater? Tick, tick, tick. There’s a proliferation of “quirky” dudes that make music like this – lo-fi garage-punk that sounds as if it’s been recorded in a tin can and spliced on to cassette tape. But there’s something irresistibly fun about Mike Krol" - The Guardian.

Scalping are the Bristol outfit of James Rushforth, Alexander Hill, Isaac Jones and Jamie Thomas, armed with a battery of squelching synths, animalistic rhythms and gritty, piercing guitars. Scalping craft truly unique music, informed by Hill’s deep knowledge of idiosyncratic electronics, Jones’ tendency towards instrumental hooks, Rushforth’s Bristolian techno and Thomas’ doom metal influences. They formed in 2017 through a love of Bristol’s visionary off-the-wall dance music and full throttle noise and punk.

A Place To Bury Strangers tour dates
Lust For Youth is the solo vehicle of Swedish electronic musician Hannes Norrvide. The project began in 2009 in Gothenburg, Sweden at a collective venue/practice space when Norrvide’s friends were starting up a punk band. He was inspired to join in, but he only had access to a somewhat useless toy keyboard, so due to the limitations of his instrument, he opted instead to make music alone.
The early experiments of Lust For Youth were raw, primitive, and drony. Norrvide worked on the project tirelessly and soon the music had grown from its hazy beginnings into a tormented darkwave sound, minimal electronics, and gothic beats that bordered on harsh noise.

'Surfbort, a four-piece punk band from Brooklyn, New York made up of David Head, Alex Kilgore, Sean Powell and led by Dani Miller, channels inspiration from the 80’s punk scene to produce rousing, explosive music. Surfbort’s live experience is visceral and confrontational. Their feedback-strafed, guitar-shredding punk music says no to a digital age full of intolerance; they radiate love and friendship.'
