Deep Sea Diver
“Wide awake, and I’m chasing after you”—exclaims a breathless Jessica Dobson, singer, multi-instrumentalist, and driving force of Seattle’s Deep Sea Diver. The lyric is one that best encapsulates the front woman’s bravado and fearlessness, which dominates Deep Sea Diver’s forthcoming sophomore LP, Secrets—Out February 26th on their own High Beam records. In their desire to explore dualities, Deep Sea Diver urgently and deliberately move you from rock experimentation to dreamy soundscapes, Kraut-esque drum and bass grooves to angular danci-ness, and full-fledged orchestration to bare bones simplicity. Dobson has the voice and authorityto tie it all together, and turn it into a cohesive unit that soars yet remains beautifully delicate and intimate. Live, the band has received acclaim for their festival-ready power and presence, Jessica’s larger than life guitar hooks, and their cascading layers that build upon each other until they reach their explosive peak.In late 2013, Dobson put in her notice to former Shins boss, James Mercer, in order to give full attention to her own musical vision. Mercer agreed, saying, “I’ll miss you, but I give you my full support. You’ve gotta pursue Deep Sea Diver”. While much was gleaned from the experiences in her many years spent playing with top tier musical outfits (Beck, the Shins, Spoon, Yeah Yeah Yeahs,) something was brewing that demanded a sort of dedication and alertness that couldn’t be fully engaged while moonlighting as a side-woman for those greats. “Good thing too," noted Stereogum, "because Jessica is an incredible front woman.”Recorded with Darrell Thorpe (Radiohead, Beck) and Luke Vanderpol at the Bank in CA, Jessica and band (comprised of husband Peter Mansen on drums, Garrett Gue on bass, and Elliot Jackson on guitar and synth) have together created an album that is colorful, energetic, and varied—with an emotional depth and pulsating charge that demands the listener’s full attention. As she and Mercer sing together on Creatures of Comfort, “I’m in my own world”, the listener is brought in, and very content that this is the world that she has chosen and invited others into. Secrets is an album you will not want to keep to yourself
Shantih Shantih
Shantih Shantih is a rock-n-roll band founded in Atlanta, GA in 2013. Their sound is characterized by hypnotic harmonies and lysergic guitar solos that play over fuzzed out melodies and mesmerizing beats. Shantih’s rock n’ roll is influenced by southern gothic images and rural Italian landscapes, creating vivid, yet melancholic narratives.

Their first full length will be out May 20, co-released by Italian label, Wild Honey Records and U.S. label, Dusty Medical Records. Shantih Shantih will then hit the road to promote the album in the United States and later in Europe.

Shantih Shantih finished their first LP "Winter in September" (recorded by Peter Furgiuele of Gringo Star) and debuted their second single in October 2015 for Adult Swim’s annual singles compilation.
