Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar was born ten years ago, when Tillmann was living in Minneapolis, playing guitar-based indie rock. The Har Mar idea, he says, was "a reaction to boring indie rock and how people were taking themselves way too seriously, and any aspect of playing and touring was no fun after a while, and I realized if I go to a dance party and sing an R. Kelly song on a couch, the girls are going to go fucking crazy. So I started transferring that to the stage and doing more R&B oriented songs and it really was a no-brainer after I'd done it a few times. Like, 'why don't I just make this gross, why don't I just start writing songs like that?" And as soon as I did, it was obvious, it was like a light bulb went off and I went on my way and got more and more aggressive, and the shows became this weird exercise in sexual tension, and I really learned how to play with that fire and make it work for me.
Lizzo
Lizzo
Based out of Minneapolis, Lizzo is the most fun and attitude to come to rap since Missy Elliot. Her songs are infectious as hell, as is her personality. Lizzo raps and sings, and she’s got a vital message of both joy and empowerment in her music and style. A step back from the hyper sexualized women you’re used to seeing in music but still deathly sexy, we think Lizzo is the dark horse rap force you never saw coming… So keep your eyes peeled for her, and in the meantime, check out LIZZOBANGERS, her 2013 album.

Computer Magic
Computer Magic
An enigma of individuality, Danielle “Danz” Johnson is her own sound. Fueled by an obsession with music stemming back to growing up in the Catskills of New York, music has always been her mainstay.

Danz joined the NYC music scene at 18 as a DJ and Promoter whilst going to Hunter College. After a few years in NYC, Danz relocated to Tampa, Florida where she began teaching herself to create music in Ableton. The result was Computer Magic – a solid mesh of space-like dance beats and personable lyrics.

Danz returned to New York and with drummer Chris Egan, who’s played with Solange Knowles, Adam Green, and Turing Machine among others – started performing live.

Two years later and Computer Magic has just finished a tour in Japan, while simultaneously releasing Scientific Experience, a compilation CD on Japan’s P-vine & Tugboat Records, and will be releasing a debut full length album this year.
See Through
See Through
See Through is a new band from New York City started by singer/guitarist and Williamsburg native ​James Pollis

In the wake of his band Your Nature’s break up, See Through began as a recording session for his solo project at The Rumpus Room with Albert DiFiore (Caveman, Sinkane). And while the sound on the recordings is dynamic and expansive, See Through's live show is possibly larger and even more ambitious
Now cemented by members Eric Davis (Apes and Androids, Chrome Canyon), Jon Wiley (Adam Green, Lightspeed Champion) and Ignacio Rivas Bixio (Computer Magic) See Through are expected to follow up their debut record with new material early this summer.​
