XENO & OAKLANDER
'TOPIARY

'“It’s a warm breath against your neck when you’re bracing against an ice storm.” –Pitchfork

“With gorgeously layered sequences and a rubber-band drum-machine beat, "Marble" is deceptively all moody atmosphere, but Wendelbo's voice drips and warps like a Dali painting, giving the song elastic movement.”-NPR

Xeno & Oaklander are a seminal New York City based synth-electronic bandTopiaryis the band's second full length for Ghostly International, released June 2016. They have been covered on Pitchfork, NPR, The Wire, The Quietus, V Magazine, The NY Times
Kodacrome
Kodacrome
Kodacrome is Elissa (vocals/synth) and Ryan (synth/drum machine). The pair crafts fragmented pop with a warm electronic pulse, featuring swells and lead lines which ring from synths and throats, alike. Elissa & Ryan share a deep love for melodic composition, as well as the gorgeous dynamics of analog electronics, and always aim to strike a balance of songwriting and synthesis. They also have a passion for visual art and film, which has come into play more heavily over the past year. Kodacrome is preparing to release their third record, following Aftermaths (2014) and Perla (2012). They will be premiering a short film featuring hand-built 1/8 scale figures to accompany a new piece from the impending record. The set-pieces will be on display as part of the release show and concert at Rough Trade, Saturday December 3.
