Jason Heath & The Greedy Souls
Jason Heath and the Greedy Souls couple rough-and-ragged folk and country strains with punk idealism and directness on their debut full-length, The Vain Hope of Horse, resulting in a sound that is as instantly familiar as it is convention-defying.

The Voodoo Fix
A rock band that doesn't know their roots doesn't know anything. Evident in their name alone, The Voodoo Fix has taken hold and twisted their roots in the blues to become a true American Rock band of a new age, taking the scene by storm. After their second successful tour, these Los Angeles-based rockers are hitting their live shows harder than ever, leaving their college crowds thirsting for more.

Savage Republic

Rising from the Los Angeles underground of the 1980s, Savage Republic forged an astonishing reputation by virtue of five mesmerizing studio albums and a string of legendary live performances.

Forever shifting, their brand of ritualistically tribal exhibitions blurred the boundaries of postpunk, industrial and soundtrack music, incorporating minimalist bass rumbles, exotic metal percussion, primal chants, middle eastern melodies and even shards of surf guitar.

A "best of" 2-disc set entitled "Procession: An Aural History 1981-2010" has just been released.
