Having released projects titled Failure to Slide and No More Heroes, The Zells were already fluent in despondency before the storm of 2020 hit — so for once, something went right for these guys. The Pittsburgh quintet’s sophomore LP, Ant Farm, is not just their best, most refined, transfixing, and emotionally seizing project yet, but a uniquely articulate statement about our generational plight. Twelve songs that capture the nihilistic bleakness of toiling in an era of historic social inequality while the very institutions we’re indebted to crumble into the dusty terrain of a world that’s burning toward its apocalyptic conclusion.
Flower Crown is a dream-pop band from Pittsburgh, PA. A reverb-heavy and esoteric bedroom project by Richie Colosimo, Flower Crown began in 2016 with their debut EP Hypnausea and quickly evolved into a more focused and cohesive sound with their first full-length, GLOW (Flowerpot Records, 2017). Flower Crown transitioned into a full-band effort in 2018, adding Mike Iverson, Chris Sexauer (Flex.Auer) and Jon Sampson to the roster. After the release of their second LP, Sundries (Crafted Sounds, 2019) Zach Bronder (Good Sport, The Gotobeds) joined on keys. After a busy few years of shows, touring, and a global pandemic, Flower Crown released their third full-length album, Heat (Crafted Sounds, 2021).
ROWDY is a band of Pittsburgh all-star musicians, joined together by the goal of taking listeners to another universe with their seemless combination of psychedelic rock and old school funk.
Dumplings are a noisy, weirdo rock band from the east end of Pittsburgh. Made up of 3 Dowlings: Pam (vocals/guitar), Jon (vocals/guitar), Jay (vocals/drums/electronics) and Scott Adams (bass) Started in 2012 as a way to get Jay & Jon working together again (Jay & Jon had been playing music together since the 1990’s), Pam was soon brought into the band to play bass and had an early knack for infectious lyrics.
