Psymon Spine
Psymon Spine’s latest album ‘Charismatic Megafauna’ explored complicated feelings and catharsis through a singular approach to left-of-center indie, electronic and dance sounds. The release earned praise from publications such as Paste, FLOOD, Brooklyn Vegan, Under The Radar, and NME, and saw playlist support from NPR Music (New Music Friday), Spotify (All New Indie, undercurrents, Fresh Finds), Apple Music (Midnight City, Today’s Indie Rock), and TIDAL (Rising: Indie/Rock), as well as notable airplay from KEXP, KCRW and the BBC.  The core members of the band—Noah Prebish, Peter Spears, and Brother Michael—grew up in the ‘00s and ‘10s with a deep appreciation for the art of “the remix,” and after the release of ‘Charismatic Megafauna’, the group found themselves craving longer and more dance-floor friendly versions of their songs to play at their recurring party Secret Friend. 

May Rio
May Rio’s first record Easy Bammer was released in June 2021 via DPI (Grace Ives, Model/Actriz), right as New York’s nightlife began to rouse from its pandemic slumber. Ready to meet the moment, May threw herself into a trial-by-fire gig grind, playing upwards of three shows a week for months on end. During this self-prescribed performance bootcamp, she befriended a group of like-minded emerging artists. Over the past year May has brought her innate knack for melody to a variety of features including The Dare’s indie sleaze hit “Girls” and Blaketheman1000’s underground smash, “Blake 2.” If there’s a keystone to New York’s downtown music sphere, it might very well be May. Her latest solo release is, French Bath, which takes its title from a deceptively luxurious act of dousing oneself in cologne to disguise an unsavory stench.

Gloss, a Philadelphia-based pop fusion band formed in 2019, comprises the dynamic talents of Isabella Amada (bass), Corinne Kite-Dean (guitar), Mollie Schechter (drums), and Sophia Grosshauser (vocals/keys/aux percussion). Emerging from a desire to address the gender gap in music at the University of the Arts, Mollie and Sophia initiated the formation in 2019. Drawing influences from jazz, synth pop, funk, Latin, and more, Gloss’s sound defies easy categorization. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, Gloss persisted in creating music, releasing their first EP with remote collaborations. Their momentum accelerated after landing notable gigs, including opening for Pom Pom Squad and Fleece. The band’s second EP, “Are You Okay?,” sold out its release show in less than a week, marking a significant milestone. With a growing fan base and a commitment to reinventing their discography, Gloss signed with management, Elton Audio, in 2023, signaling a new era of dedication and creativity for the band.
