:: White Sea ::
Kibby has embarked on a solo project since touring with M83, called White Sea, which is a translation of her surname. Her first track, a remix of Solid Gold's "Synchronize", first appeared on her MySpace. A second track titled "Overdrawn" was released to her MySpace in March, revealing a new musical direction for Kibby. On September 30, a new track, "Mountaineer", became available for free download on the RCRD LBL website. An EP, The self-produced In Cold Blood, Kibby's first full-length album, was released in May 2014 via Crush Music and Songs Publishing, and features songs co-written with Greg Kurstin and Mark Ronson. She described it as a break-up record where she "had to express myself through my music. It was the only way to purge myself of this extreme grief and loss". The album was toured as support to The Naked and Famous.

:: Wolf Prize ::
Wolf Prize: Ethereal and emotional soundscapes in outer space.
"This is a trio of extremely talented musicians who know about the past but make music for the eternal present. They play by their own rules: no standard drum kit, no endless choruses, no end to bandleader Tori Roggeman's vocal range, and no need to explain themselves. But don't worry—you'll be more than happy with the way they reflect your own emotions right back at you." - D.M. Collins, LA Record

:: Alyeska :: 
Alyeska, formed by song writer and guitarist Alaska Reid who moved from a small town in Montana. Alyeska is a three piece band. Alaska met drummer Ben Spear, and began to further form a dynamic sound that was still heavy but that left room for Alaska. Just this year the band recorded three songs with producer John Agnello whose credits include Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth and Phosphorescent-- all artists that inspire the band.

:: Cassandra :: 
Cassandra is a feminist art-rock power-ballad pop group based out of Los Angeles California. We have glitter in our eyes and fervor in our hearts. We sing truth to power and rage against violence and silence. We are always looking for people to join the band. Cassandra is also a concept, a performance project, an experimental theatre work, an incubator of collective practice, a feminist action, a cultural impact, a space for creative participation, a vehicle for radical social justice ideas to be aestheticized in a fiercely feminine way, a spectacle, an art event, and an educational activist project.
