Playing garage-accented pop that reveals more than a passing influence of indie rock of the 1980s and '90s, Mikal Cronin was raised in Laguna Beach, California, where as a teenager he developed a passion for both surfing and rock & roll. While attending Laguna Beach High School, he fell in with a handful of like-minded music fans, and formed a band that played local parties. Less –

According to Cronin, his first solo album began as therapy after finally completing college and making his way into the real world; full of noisy pop and garage influences, the self-titled LP (featuring guest appearances by Ty Segall, Charlie Moothart, and John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees) was issued by Trouble in Mind Records in September 2011. While still playing with Segall, he released a second solo album, MCII, for Merge in the spring of 2013.
Calvin Love
Calvin Love
CALVIN LOVE walks amidst a realm of conflicting dualism. His creative demeanor blends gritty exploration and an effortlessly cool croon. He's twisted and beautiful and reels you in through wistful verse, entrancing rhythms and weighty synthesized pleas.
He strings you along. A thrust and a swoon, a lover lost, he asks you to come back to him. And you do. And then he leaves, with cigarette smoke marking his trail.

Delivering suave and demented tunes, nostalgic and spun through otherworldly calculations.He's a stranded space captain locked in his cockpit recording his final thoughts, or a madman explorer roaming the bush with mismatched socks, good luck charms in his pocket and a rucksack of illicit findings.
The Cairo Gang
The Cairo Gang
THE CAIRO GANG is a musical declaration uniting the romanticists with the doomsayers for a round of high fives and hand shakes. Over the course of recent years, The Cairo Gang has been a lingering passion for Emmett Kelly, a stimulated singer/songwriter with an impressive list of musicians in his rolodex. Performing with a back up band or solo, Kelly always brings a freshened thrill to the world of quiet rock music. After mastering countless instruments, Kelly decided to put his skills to work and record some tunes that have been afloat in his headspace. And thank the heavens he did, because this album perfectly tweaks the butterflies in all of our stomachs. The Cairo Gang has toured with Beth Orton, The Fall, and many others, and has collaborated on a number of albums with Will Oldham aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy.
