Kath Bloom — For fans of the song and how to feel it. Kath Bloom is some kind of legend. She comes from a special place where country, blues and folk are made beautifully translucent and emotive. She has a special gift – her voice is delicate and tender, yet retains that raw emotion and hard worn truths that allows each sung word to be felt.

Her albums recorded with Loren Mazzacane Connors in the 70′s/80′s are rare things, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful and hard to find on LP, but check the reissues from a few years ago. In the 90′s Kath’s music was famously featured in Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise. Since then she has been busy writing and recording to great acclaim. Two new albums in the last few years and she and her songs where also honoured on a tribute album featuring Bill Callahan, Scout Niblett and Mark Kozelek.

Kamyar Arsani from Iran, is a DC based multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter who has roots deep in Sufism and has performed on daf for the past twenty years, researching Middle Eastern rhythms and percussions. Kamyar also sings and plays in two other collaborations: «Huda & Kamyar,» a daf and oud duo (Mashriq music), and «Time is Fire,» a weird world/post-punk band. Kamyar's musical mission is to spread cultural awareness and unity by mixing contemporary musical trends with traditional Persian folk music.

Friendship — is a Philadelphia-based band comprised of Dan Wriggins, Peter Gill, Andrés Rodríguez, and Mike Cormier. Their 2015 debut LP, “You’re Going to Have to Trust Me”, is a collection of songs written by Wriggins and recorded by the band in Philadelphia. Lyrics and production both recount an irreparably fractured world, albeit with a convincing surface.
