MEMBERS: Laura Bettinson, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker
Formed in London in 2011, Ultraísta is a multimedia trio founded on a mutual love of Afrobeat, krautrock, electronic and dance music, visual art, and tequila. Its members are vocalist/artist Laura Bettinson, and multi-instrumentalist producers Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker (whose collective resumes read like a guide to groundbreaking and culturally influential modern music). Their music is highly infectious, exquisitely crafted electronic kraut-pop. Favoring mantras over traditional choruses and distilling their compositions to the barest essentials, they possess the kind of masterful control over the pure anatomy of a pop song that only comes from having played a significant role in redefining the pop song in the 21st century.

Stagnant Pools are Bryan and Douglass Enas, two brothers (21 and 22) from Bloomington, Indiana.
With just one guitar and a drum kit, they make music which the Chicago Reader describes as "drone-heavy, slate-gray art-rock that should appeal to fans of Disappears, Joy Division, and Sonic Youth records from back when they were still actually scary."
After a couple of DIY releases, the sibling duo spent one day in the studio recording their debut full-length Temporary Room.
With a tour van as a recent graduation present, and shows under their belt with EMA and labelmates Japandroids, they’re releasing Temporary Room this summer and then hitting the road.
