"Audio-visually speaking, you couldn't ask for more from the Internet." Noisey/Vice

"If you're looking for boring, same-same music, look away now... I keep picturing Mighty Boosh scenes when I listen through Fascinator's back catalog…bound to remind listeners of Gorillaz' marching beats and hazy sampling…" Indie Shuffle

"What's fascinator? is that your live sex show?" Matt Coyte, Rolling Stone

"A lushly put together blend of synths, swooshes, slowed down beats and has a grandeur that something made this way shouldn't be able to manage." The Sound of Confusion


Since recently birthing into the galaxy, Fascinator has toured with Tame Impala, Midnight Juggernauts, Kirin J Callinan, Splashh and is currently floating around North America with Jagwar Ma.

"I describe my music as trip-slop because I make most of it over slowed down breakbeats that some guy put on my computer. My influences include Connan Mockasin, Ariel Pink, Sebastien Tellier, Tonetta, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Beck and Can."

The live show ranges from a solo magic show to up to 20 cosmic shaman conjuring about the stage and since October 2012 Fascinator has created and released 7 music videos to wide acclaim, tv broadcasting and much bloggery.
Sons Of An Illustrious Father
Sons Of An Illustrious Father
Sons of an Illustrious Father is a five-piece band from the Hudson Valley. Combining traditional folk, blues, country, and early gospel forms and aesthetics with punk's raw drive, Sons has a sound at once both ancient and modern, both eclectic and distinctly American.

"Sons of an Illustrious Father," according to, "are extremely good at what they do…No matter whether the Sons are rocking it hard, tearing the joint down and stomping fear into the floor beneath their feet, or maintaining that melancholy…they preserve the highest caliber of masterful artistry."

Sons have played their combination of distinct originals and modern takes on the traditional songs that gave the band their early inspiration extensively in their home state of New York, and, as of the summer of 2010, have toured throughout the Northeast, South, and Midwest U.S. They also, by invitation, played the 2010 North by Northeast Festival in Toronto, ON.

Sons' eponymous debut, their recent EP, We Are Dead and Reborn, and their second full-length album, One Body, are all available now on Bandcamp, CDBaby, and iTunes.

Young Yeller
Young Yeller is the musical alter-ego of Brooklyn-based Jesse Brickel, a classically trained percussionist with his own brand of electronic bedroom dream pop. As Young Yeller, he has already penetrated the blogosphere, with his music being called “pure gold,” “quintessentially perfect” and “really addictive.”

His critically acclaimed debut EP 'Make Me' features five tracks of irresistibly catchy, yet strangely haunting electro-pop, made for the dance floor and the morning after. Self-released on bandcamp, 'Make Me' continues to be available for free online stream/download at

Brickel is currently working on a full-length LP, set for a release later this year.

With individual taste and a passion for musical risks, Jason Eldredge appeals to the avid music lover as well as the casual fan seeking a soundtrack to their life’s adventures.

Jason’s musical education started at an early age. “It was obvious to everyone around me that I had a real fondness for music, so babysitters and older kids were always feeding me the cornerstone albums of that time."

“Later on in school, my friends would ask me to create mix tapes for their parties. I never really thought that much about it, but other people seemed to realize that I had a knack for it.”

Jason became a “public radio junkie” while living in Chicago listening to WBEZ. He was involved in the local theater scene and finally moved to the West Coast to pursue his acting career. He discovered KCRW and became a volunteer almost immediately. “I showed up to my volunteer interview in a tie and brought along a portfolio. I knew what I wanted and was determined to be involved with the station.”

Jason's desire for accessibility in introducing the newest jam or resurfacing the occasionally forgotten gem brings a mixture of sounds that is consistently varied and original. “I always take chances. Sometimes the things I think people are going to hate end up being what people love the most. That's one of the best parts of my show.”

Jason was previously named by Billboard Magazine as one of the ‘Top 30 Under Thirty’ in the music Industry for his music supervision work in film and television. His credits include: HBO’s Six Feet Under (music coordinator), The Closer for TNT, and Free Radio for VH-1. He has been featured in other print and online publications such as Monocle Magazine, Hamptons Magazine, LA Weekly, and Mashable.

He has deejayed live for the MTV Video Music Awards, Oliver Peoples, Ace Hotels, Soho House, Santos Party House, Flavorpill, The Standard Hotels, The Bowery Hotel, Armani, and The House of Blues.

W Hotels and The Patina Group run exclusive mixes produced by Jason in a variety of their establishments worldwide.

In addition to his work in music, Jason has acted in a variety of commercials, films, and stage productions. He studied acting with the Atlantic Theater Company in New York and completed the BFA acting program at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He has also studied photography at UCLA and recently completed a major candidacy in Art History at Columbia University.

"I plan an interview like a trip," says longtime music curator, radio host, and two-time Grammy nominee Chris Douridas. "I know I'm going to get from here to there, but the side trips and roadside attractions are always the most interesting." Chris' penchant for crossing borders has led him to audiences around the world. Throughout most of the 90's, Chris held the music director position at KCRW. As host of KCRW's popular daily new music program Morning Becomes Eclectic (1990-1998), he was the first to play demos from then-unsigned artists Beck, Gillian Welch and eels, among many others.

While Chris was still in his KCRW role, Geffen Records enlisted him to identify and recruit new artists as an A&R consultant, bringing to the label the bands Remy Zero and That Dog. Two years later, he became an A&R executive at DreamWorks Records where he brought in the eels and Propellerheads, among others.

While at DreamWorks and KCRW, he hosted the debut season of Sessions at West 54th, a weekly PBS music performance and interview program, which bowed in the summer of 1997, and is still in syndication. The show featured interview segments filmed by D.A. Pennebaker, and extended sets from Beck, Fiona Apple, Ben Folds, Sonic Youth, and Zap Mama, along with the television performance debuts of Belle and Sebastian and Jane Siberry, among many others.

Chris is probably best known in film circles as a music supervisor and consultant for major motion pictures and television series, having put together music for Northern Exposure, the Austin Powers series, One Eight Seven, As Good as It Gets, Heat, Grosse Point Blank, Grace of My Heart, American Beauty (GRAMMY nominee for Best Soundtrack), One Hour Photo, Down With Love, The Girl Next Door, The Chumscrubber, Rumor Has It, the record-setting Shrek 2 (GRAMMY nominee for Best Soundtrack) and Bobby, the Robert Kennedy tribute from director Emilio Estevez.

As the new millenium began, Chris set new standards in the online arena as the former VP at AOL Music where he created, produced and hosted the popular Sessions@AOL interview and performance program. For Sessions, Chris interviewed Paul McCartney, U2, Moby, Radiohead, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Nelly, John Mayer, Sheryl Crow and Avril Lavigne, among hundreds of others.

Also a creative programming consultant for Steve Jobs and Apple's iTunes Music Store, Douridas created and produced the inaugural two years of the live performance and interview series, iTunes Originals, featuring Paul Simon, Jack Johnson, Alanis Morissette, Sting, Willie Nelson, Bjork, PJ Harvey, and others. Additionally, Douridas created and curated the launch of iTunes Essentials, an ongoing series of downloadable music playlists for the iPod culture.

In his voice-over work, Chris was recently heard in the Nissan Shift TV commercial campaign.

He continues his dedication to discovering and nurturing unsigned and forward-leaning artists through his global radio program, heard on KCRW-FM and
