Forest Ray
Forest Ray experiments in the analog and psychedelic, combining guitar driven psychedelic rock with elements of raw synth-laced post-punk. The group's uninhibited performances and analog recording process have harbored darker, older and more intimate recordings. The songs regularly feature flute and vibraphone which have become staples of the group's brand of psych. The band’s melodic and rhythmic sensibilities occasionally reveal the songwriter’s background in Eastern art music and Balkan music while blending their love for good old fashioned rock n’ roll, psychedelic blues and country. Originally started in San Luis Obispo, CA as a two man recording project the group has now evolved into a touring lineup currently based in Seattle. Their first record, Musical Witchcraft, was released October 28th, 2016 on 180g vinyl. Their second record, Laughing, was released on 180g vinyl on August 25th, 2018.

Moon Darling
There are those bands who recall an older time and place, a moment in history when music was more about saying something of substance than it was about counting the number of streams. Seattle psych rockers Moon Darling cling to this ideology, creating a bluesy sound that harkens back to that classic ’70s rock howl. By channeling the influence of bands like Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple (with a little bit of weirdness thrown in for good measure), the band builds a kaleidoscopic version of those artists that remains relevant and reverent among all the gaudy imitations littering the modern musical landscape.
