Shantih Shantih
Shantih Shantih is a rock-n-roll band founded in Atlanta, GA in 2013. Their sound is characterized by hypnotic harmonies and lysergic guitar solos that play over fuzzed out melodies and mesmerizing beats. Shantih’s rock n’ roll is influenced by southern gothic images and rural Italian landscapes, creating vivid, yet melancholic narratives.

Their first full length will be out May 20, co-released by Italian label, Wild Honey Records and U.S. label, Dusty Medical Records. Shantih Shantih will then hit the road to promote the album in the United States and later in Europe.

Shantih Shantih finished their first LP "Winter in September" (recorded by Peter Furgiuele of Gringo Star) and debuted their second single in October 2015 for Adult Swim’s annual singles compilation.
Material Girls
"Not much information exists about recently-formed Atlanta band Material Girls, and the group likes it that way. The six-piece outfit featuring members of Slang, Concord America and Chief Scout debuted in late 2016 with just 33 copies of a lathe cut 7-inch record, sharing only one song online via a conspicuously sparse Soundcloud channel. The first single, “Drained,” tantalized with spooky sleigh bells, jangly piano, braying horns, and deep, moody vocals reminiscent of Ariel Pink and Leonard Cohen. It was a promising track, and for listeners left wanting more, there was almost nothing to be found. Today Material Girls tease the internet a bit more, releasing the B-side of the record with CL’s premiere of “Tightrope.” Though the dark vocals and signature trumpets and saxophones remain, the song reveals a jauntier and more sardonic tone. The energetic bass and spoken-word lyrics (“I ask for advice / I fuck it up twice”) evoke influences ranging from the Talking Heads to Ought."
Dot.s is an endeavor to take "dance music" far from where it comfortably rests in its current, popular state. We venture to challenge the status of an art form that began as something primal and turned into something calculated and boring and kinda depressing. Drums, bass, and synthesizers rest in the center of our five-piece arrangement, followed by whatever auxiliary instrumentation feels cozy on top of that. We hope to give you something that is as fun and refreshing as our collective ideology: that sounds can prove-ably change the way people act, and should, thus, be made with obsessive care.

"There might not be a name or genre for what Dot.s are doing with their music, but Jellyfiss seems to do the same thing a Talking Heads album would do: advance dance music to a place that feels more organic, more exciting, and, ultimately, more lasting than most music from the genre. Dot.s create music with a clear personality, which is something not only lacking in dance music, but most music in general." -Sean Zearfoss, Immersive Atlanta

"Press play on "Down Goes the Elephant," the latest, 12-minute opus from electronic pop outfit Dot.s, and a virtual universe unfolds, complete with fugue-like changing parts, and a roller coaster ride of emotional states. The song is a semi-operatic departure that finds the group reaching new highs in both composition and collaborative synergy. The Atlanta Philharmonic warms up the intro, setting the mood and establishing a palette for a colorful and propulsive departure for Dot.s. While there are similarities to the music heard throughout previous efforts Jellyfiss and We Swim, "DGTE" comes together on a grand scale in terms of both concept, arrangements, lyrics, and even its artwork." -Chad Radford, Creative Loafing

"Recorded with Damon Moon at Standard Electric Recorders Co., 'Rose Lens' unfurls in steady waves, each atmospheric pulse and burbling groove striding confidently into the next. Yet, despite its swaggering self-assurance, the track finds the band working in a darker mood than in the past, confronted by the dread of isolation, fallible memories, and the silent voices that keep us awake at night. Still, the vibe here is more meditative than dreary, more coming to terms than a statement of disillusion. Throughout it all, the methodical beat and throbbing ambience thrust inexorably forward, shrouding any thoughts of gloom in a shimmering haze of brooding electropop. Life is still full of wonder, after all, even if it isn’t always pretty." -Guillermo Castro, Immersive Atlanta
Sister Sai
My name is Saira (pronounced sī’ rǝ), and I am a multi-instrumentalist, visual artist, and librarian living in Decatur, GA. My life experiences are a very unusual hodgepodge that feed what feels like a constant identity crisis. I try to resolve that crisis through my music and art, and in this way, my work entails influences from my desi heritage, a tumultuous spiritual journey, a very unfocused intellectual curiosity, and the lessons I have learned from love and loss. In addition to solo work, I also record and perform with 10th Letter.
Lois Righteous
Lois Righteous grinds out fast-paced low-fi punk tracks thick with fuzzy guitar and a riot grrl ethos. This Atlanta trio rocks party anthems and love songs along with feminist calls-to-action. Raise your Highlife to the dismantling of the patriarchy.
