    Alexia Avina
    Alexia Avina ( also of Best Fern) is a Montreal-based artist whose influence is rooted in ambient, folk, and dreampop traditions. Through the use of increasingly minimal, arrhythmic and tempo-based looping as well as ethereal melodic hooks, she balances between spaciousness and restraint. Her debut album Betting on an Island was released in February 2018 on Never Content, and will be followed by her sophomore release All That I Can’t See in March 2019.
    Press:
    Stereogum: It’s sometimes acoustic, sometimes electronic, often layered and always exceedingly lush. Betting On An Island is a cohesive soundscape that beckons listeners closer, and once you’ve listened to it a couple of times you’ll feel as if you’re sharing a secret.
    Gold Flake Paint: Evocative and tenderly paced, Avina’s new work offers glacial, spacious pop music, a drifting swirl of keys and gorgeous vocals that mostly wanders somewhat aimlessly but is occasionally held in place, little flutters of light that fix the focus momentarily like the unwavering sun suddenly catching on a wave.
     
    Alena Spanger
    Bio: Alena Spanger is a singer/pianist/songwriter from the balsam forests of Maine, now based in Brooklyn. Weaving together angular art-pop songcraft, unorthodox vocalizations, and intricate arrangements that turn from baroque complexity to visceral immediacy on a dime, Spanger's songs construct their own elaborate and immersive worlds. With her previous band—Tiny Hazard, and in her new music, Spanger explores the less familiar nooks and crannies of timbre and of psyche. As Dusted Magazine noted, "Spanger sings to provoke, not to comfort."

    Laura Wolf
    Cellist and singer Laura Wolf Schatz uses live looping,
    effect pedals and various instruments to weave a
    penetrating world of sound. Having dabbled in classical, ambient, and rock ensembles, her solo project is a playful tribute to her diverse musical roots, deemed "beautifully immersive" and "distinctly
    enchanting" by Gold Flake Paint.  Her live loop-based performances bridge spacious experimentalism with pop-driven hooks.
