Boxcar Radio rises from the ashes of the cosmic west with alt country/ americana tones that takes one back to days of riding the rails.


Blackfox is a ragged tale told in a burned-out brothel behind an abandoned church; folk forms wrapped in wire and soaked in bourbon.  The songwriting and genre experimentation of veteran multi-instrumentalist and seer of visions Stacey Cargal rides on a carpet of sound built by a collection of longtime friends and scene-mates. The band works a mix of garage, blues, gospel and country-inflected songs and pushes them into new sonic territories with aspects of noise and space rock.
"Ranging from hard rocking, almost punk bombast, gentle acoustic driven ballads, and psych-ambient rambles, [Blackfox] delivers an intriguing collection of tunes, each one daring, challenging, and played with the confidence that is developed from years in the trenches. At times as sinister as black metal, but then shifting to more melodic and palatable tone, Blackfox maintains an edge that keeps the listener on edge, while providing an entertaining and satisfying experience.” - Creative Loafing

Nerdkween (pronounced "nerd queen") is the stage name for the American singer/songwriter and composer Monica Arrington (born November 2, in Anderson, Indiana) who is known for lo-fi recordings and minimalist style of electric guitar playing with added electronic noises. She is also known for a wide range in vocal ability, from haunting and airy tones to gritty and country-like twangs. Her music is a part of the genre slowcore or dream pop. She is also one of the few African-American performers in experimental pop/rock music.
