Sleuth
Sleuth
Sleuth hail from the wilds of Vancouver's surrounding towns and cities. They take art, pop music, cherry coke, comics, jokes, films and mid-century literature very seriously.
Orca Team
Orca Team
ORCA TEAM is a 1960s Post Punk Beach Party from the confusing waters of the Pacific Northwest. They make the music of a punk trio if everyone in the band decided to keep their volume low and their tones clean. Each song is short, sung with a lonesome croon, equipped with a melodic bass line, and drenched in reverb. Influences include The Flamingos, Pylon, Jan & Dean and The Smiths.
White Town
White Town
The "band" White Town consists of Jyoti Mishra, who writes and records the music almost entirely on his own, with occasional help from other musicians. Although best -- in fact, almost entirely -- known for the fluke 1997 hit "Your Woman," White Town's mix of musical, political, and social influences makes Mishra one of the more intriguing, although frustratingly inconsistent, musicians in '90s indie pop.
Outerhope
Outerhope was created in the summer of 2004, when siblings Michael and Micaela Benedicto started working on songs made sparingly with a guitar, an electric piano, and a lot of vocal harmony. They were inspired by stacks of old children's records, lost tales and limericks, and songs of folk artists from the 60s. Their first studio recording was the album Strangely Paired, released independently in 2005 and re-released by Terno Recordings in 2006. Outerhope's second album, A Day for the Absent, was released in October 2009.
