All People
All People
All People's initial concept was "All People Translate Pure Unfiltered Emotion." The phrase described what the band would be for us: a conduit for emotion and feeling. It's a kind of mantra or spiritual belief that also touches on the idea that we wholeheartedly believe there is a pure and common energy connecting all of humanity. Music is our method of self expression within this common energy, but each person has their unique way of expressing what's in their hearts.

All People – "S/T" is our third album and the most accurate representation of that concept. The record is a 'soundtrack to youthful daydreams with fits of ecstasy and a preoccupation with the crushing drama of the small stuff' — 27 minutes of dark and dreamy post-punk inspired by synth-driven bands of the '80s and guitar-driven bands of the early '90s and bound by introspective lyrics. Themes touch on mental illness and anxiety and incidents of death and suicide we experienced among our loved ones — all woven into our perception of human nature. These songs help us stay positive and not succumb to depression. There is light at both ends of the tunnel.

All People – "S/T" is out Friday, May 20 2016 on Community Records. The band and DIY label are based in New Orleans, Louisiana. All People's Daniel Ray and Greg Rodrigue also co-founded and run Community Records.
Dikembe
Dikembe is a band from Gainesville, FL. Steven, Kenny, David, and Grimble first started Dikembe when they were all squatting an abondoned firehouse in Gainesville known as the Crust Castle. The four individuals have funneled their influences of emo circa 1995-2004 through the space music of today to create something wholly unoriginal and only mildly inspiring. Sometimes they like to play loud because they think it is cool. Their first LP will be out on mini disc hobby label Tiny Engines this spring.
Expert Timing
Truly a passion project, Expert Timing brings together the warmth and chemistry of husband/wife duo Jeff & Katrina Snyder. With Jeff on guitar and Katrina on bass they both share songwriting and vocal duties. With the help of drummer Tim McGowan, the band proudly wears it's emo and indie rock influences on their sleeves.

STORY
U.S. Nero LLC's Badass Chicks of the Week

"This week's Badass Chicks segment goes to New Orleans-based soul-folk duo SIRENS. This is long overdue, but they just did finally put a soundcloud up so I have something to link to. These girls sing with attention-grabbing smokey blues voices. Classically sensual and burlesque. And their stripped-down, ukelele-dominated accompaniment invokes a misty post-rock dream-scape that offers an almost ironic contrast to the primal humanity of the vocals. Add to that intensely personal lyrics and you get a band that is very hard to turn away from. Seriously, check them out." -Michael Ku
