Anemone
Anemone
Anemone is the dream/pop, groovy psychedelic rock recording project of Montreal-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Chloé Soldevila with boys Miles Dupire-Gagnon, Zach Irving, Gabriel Lambert and Grégoire Carrier-Bonneau. With a penchant for melodic classicism, 1960's pop rock, airy psychedelia and inspired by California’s waves through an open van window, Anemone is an effortless voyage with love.
The Ruination
The Ruination
The Ruination originally started as a side project in January 2008 to enable its members to branch out from their dub reggae beginnings and expound upon the collective whole’s diverse musical interests. The quintet features effected drums, congas & percussion, bass, guitar, electric organ, effected saxophone, and various other synth sounds. The Ruination aims to create soundscapes drawing heavily on reggae, dub, down-tempo, hip-hop, drum and bass, and funk rhythms. These soundscapes provide an already detailed canvas for the group’s soloists’ improvisations and experimentations. With these elements together, The Ruination creates an eclectic sound that is wholly original in both style and substance.

In October 2009 The Ruination independently released a self-titled album and has since become a mainstay at Speakeasy's "Free Acid" event series, incorporating a deeper, darker psychedelic sound. With the upcoming release of the Wham-Blam mixtape and the full length yet-to-be-titled LP, the band has become revered for their spaced out live shows and frequent collaborations with some of Atlanta's most revered musicians.

Oh, and lasers, lots of lasers.

"Sprawling Atlanta outfit the Ruination knows no musical boundaries, flirting heavily and in equal measure with flighty dub reggae, psych-spiced freak-outs, free jazz firepower, freewheeling jam rock, and druggy downtempo rhythms. It's a hot, glorious mess of a sound that astonishingly manages to hold its shifting shape, even when laden with the headiest of grooves. Imagine the lo-fi bedroom dub of recent underground acts like Sun Araw, only amped up to 11. This is some no-nonsense shit." - Gabe Vodicka, Creative Loafing
Command
Command
Coming form East Atlanta, Command grew up immersed within the deep, vibrant culture of the ATL where he developed a unique and infectious sound used to captivate the alternative music scene in Atlanta since late 2015. His style can best be described as a fine blend of indie rock flourishes & hip-hop / soul that bring to mind contemporaries, Kid Cudi and Tame Impala.

His latest project, MATH, is an EP that provides an introspective lens into the artist's headspace as he attempts to balance his personal relationships with his creative fervor. MATH a genuine display of Command's unique perspective, as he struggles to find a niche for himself within Atlanta's thriving trap dominated bubble.
