Jaggery (Boston, MA)

“Jaggery audiences go silent and still like people appreciating raw, scary, beautiful wildlife.” That observation was made by web magazine, Cambridge Day, in reaction to the Boston-based five-piece, who work the dark edge of a genre-defying musical style (darkwave jazz? ethereal avant-rock? chamber art-pop?) Moving from haunting lullabies to intricately-woven mixed-meter rants to catharsis-inducing mini-epics, the band borrows pages out of the books of both Kate Bush and Alice Coltrane, suggesting a classical, organic, avant-jazz-oriented Cocteau Twins or a “white witch” counter to the haunting Diamanda Galas.

Jaggery found its footing in New York, writing and performing under different monikers until 2004 when the band began to take its current shape: singer/songstress/pianist Singer Mali is flanked by a rotating lineup of musicians and instrumentation, including Daniel Schubmehl’s West African and jazz approach to the drum kit, Tony Leva’s often prepared upright bass, Rachel Jayson’s avant-classical viola, and Petaluma Vale’s glistening Celtic harp and backing vocals.

Jaggery have brought their dark and dramatic sound to the stage of Boston’s NEMO conference in 2005, Toronto’s NXNE in 2011, and have opened for Amanda Palmer and Wye Oak. Their live show has become as much a theatrical performance as an audio one, with the band often accompanied by dancers, aerialists, and film.

Shana Falana (Kingston, NY)

Shana Falana is an experimental dream-pop band emerging from New York’s vast psych/shoegaze scene. Combining live-looping of reverb-drenched vocals and guitar with drums, pre-recorded “backing tracks”, and stunning visual projections, Shana’s live experience has often been described as transcendental. Praised as “the most entrancing modern psychedelic pop now being made” by Chronogram magazine (NY), Shana is now touring the US and Europe in support of her debut EP, “In The Light”.
Shana Falana also has three songs included on a release from Team Love Records, the compilation is out now, Die Pfalz. Shana Falana’s debut LP is coming out in 2015.
