Meat Wave is constantly being asked about its name, though it gets why you keep on doing it. Formed in 2011 by the trio of Chris Sutter (vocals/guitar), Joe Gac (bass), and Ryan Wizniak (drums), the three Chicago punk scene stalwarts came together and, just a year later, released its self-titled full-length, though that was never the intention.

Having signed to SideOneDummy, Meat Wave is set to release Delusion Moon, a record that works as one interlocking piece. Focusing on the lunar cycles and the concept of moon sickness, Sutter puts himself in other peoples' shoes and attempts to work through the insanity of our modern world with the band's acerbic post-punk serving as the backdrop. It's a record that's varied, versatile, and endlessly venomous, offering biting social criticism the way only Meat Wave can.

Naomi Punk (Seattle, Captured Tracks)
Considering the way the music world is today, you'd expect a bunch of young Seattle dudes to get extra weird, if only because they can, but Naomi Punk take a different route, constructing brawny, anthemic rock songs that'll make every kid that hears them want to start their own band.

NOTS are a 4 piece, all XX, “nuevo no wavo” band from Memphis, TN. Unpredictable guitars, celestial synths, and punctuated vocals swirl around the repetition of a powerful rhythm section to form a sound and a live show not easily classifiable but entirely addictive.

Mykki Blanco (born Michael David Quattlebaum Jr) is a writer, activist and international performing artist. In 2010 Quattlebaum first began making crushing industrial punk under the moniker No Fear before beginning a video art project that would grow to be the glamorous riot grrrl rap of Mykki Blanco.

In 2012, Mykki burst into the music scene with the 'Mykki Blanco and the Mutant Angels' EP. Later in 2012 Blanco dropped the seminal 'Cosmic Angel Mixtape', that featured Mykki's first wave of hits 'Wavvy', 'Haze Boogie Life' and 'Kingpinning'.

On May 21, 2013 Blanco released his second work 'Betty Rubble: The Initiation' EP. In January of 2015 Mykki partnered with !K7 to create her own imprint DOGFOOD Music Group, a label that aims to give voice to underground artists that share her vision and "transcend conventional cultural boundaries / constructs." The first DMG release titled C-ORE, a new compilation project, was out on Sept 18. Mykki is currently working on her solo album.

The Seth Bogart SHOW is the new live televisual performance starring Seth Bogart (formerly of Hunx & His Punx and Gravy Train).

The performance features a video backdrop (inspired by Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Liquid Television) set to music inspired by Radio Disney, Kraftwerk, Le Tigre, Broadcast + Nina Hagen. The live show was tested for the first time this summer in France, and became an art installation in LA at 356 S. Mission Rd this fall. 

Seth Bogart’s debut album (produced by Cole MGN - Ariel Pink, Julia Holter, etc) will be released early next year on Burger Records.
