Formed out of the remnants of many a Brooklyn band, AMAZING BABY is the product of love and sustaining the loss of it, a car crash, a fourteen-piece orchestra, and the desire to make sense of – or escape - their surroundings. “We are fascinated with escapism and creating small worlds that can stand alone or be connected as stories within the context of our album,” says lead singer Will Roan, and with Rewild, Amazing Baby has created an epic, each song a chapter. Sonically it spans genre, serving as a collection of every note the members have ever heard, from the depths of black metal to the high sighs of glam rock and sugary pop. And while Roan sings, “we write the songs for fun” on jangly foot-stomper “Kankra”, the sum of these songs is more than that. They are songs of catharsis, anthems of evolution, the marriage of feral emotionality with a deep intellectualism. Rewild is the sound of raw progress.

With THE ENTRANCE BAND: The Entrance Band kicks out a veritable explosion of mind-bending, skyscraping high-volume electric power. The trio – which includes singer/guitarist Guy Blakeslee, drummer Derek James and bassist Paz Lenchantin – set out for new musical frontiers with their full-on melding of psychedelic freakout and punk rock intensity. Co-founder of Ecstatic Peace Records, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, says, "The Entrance Band's new music is the most alluring and, yes, entrancing vibe I've yet to experience in this new age. A soundtrack for the new groove."
