On a dark and stormy night in October 2012, three young men from Atlanta got together to play some music. After several hours of fruitless jamming, the exhausted trio fell into a deep sleep and all dreamed the same curious dream. In this dream, they were visited by a wizard named Doesin, who told them that "musician" was secretly another word for "magician", and that the songs they heard in their sleep were the beat to which the universe itself pulsed. When they awoke, they noticed that if they listened carefully, the songs they heard in their dream were still playing softly in the back of their heads! The trio promptly named themselves after the wizard and set out to restore peace, love and funkiness to the universe. This is that band, and these are those songs.
"Flower is a brand new rock outfit out of Atlanta, Georgia, stateside. This trio brings pounding riffs along with phenomenally grooving rhythms and powerfully raw vocals. My seasoned ears were truly digging the diverse and captivating genre bending of grunge rock, indie rock, alternative rock and garage rock charm. Flower has a sensational maturity and potential in being an up and coming force in rock.

You won't have to wait long to hear more, as they will be releasing their debut full-length album during the winter of 2015."

Cinema Novo
Cinema Novo is what happens when a band tries to make a movie...or, when filmmakers start a band.

Atlanta-based Cinema Novo finds their home blending progressive punk, world rhythms, math rock, and psychedelic ambience to form an intricate sonic mutiny. Then, they bring their music to life through film. The result is an audio-visual fusion of group's wildly ranging influences into a single common vision.

Moving pictures and music are inextricably tied, with every scene connected to a musical moment in time, every sound connected to its visual counterpart. The band’s name is borrowed from the 1960s Brazilian film movement of the same name, which inspires the group to create scenes using sound, do more with less, and craft the soundtracks to the stories they want to see told - a set of moving mental pictures redrawn with every live performance.

The group's current project, Seven Headed Lion, is a musical film series connecting modern social conflict with the ancient mythology of different cultures from around the world.
Gas Hound
Gas Hound is a blazing cyber wolf, with relentlessly tight and engaging songwriting. The live shows have been compared to sonically re-living landscapes from the Brother’s Grimm, Pale Rider, and Jim Jarmusch’s “Dead Man.” It rumbles like a tumbleweed murder machine, slogging across the arid lands of Moab yet culls longingly to the impermanence of the “Desierto Florido” in Atacama, Chile.

Gas Hound is the desert-inspired gutter folk project of Atlanta-based writer Benjamin J. Davidow (Staff Writer at Immersive Atlanta, Lead Guitarist and Co-Composer of both The Buzzards of Fuzz and Nuncio). The project has a natural ebb and flow which comes from it’s ability to suit a wide variety of listeners needs. It is just as heavy and pleasing acoustically as it can be sweetly destroying with a full five piece band. The live lineup includes the ever cunning singer-songwriter Ethan Fogus on pedal steel and keys, Matthew J. Pendrick on the percussive resonances, Nick Whitson on auxiliary interstellar chromo-tonics, and Chris Pilson on heavy strings.

Gas Hound’s debut EP, The Postman, is set to be released in the Fall of 2016. It was recorded, mixed and produced by Damon Moon of The Cottage Recording Co.
