Description

PERSEPHONE'S BEES
"P's Bee's music -- spit-shined, danceable Euro-pop reminiscent of a funkier Cardigans or straighter Komeda -- is not only great, it's instantly likable." -- The Onion LA

THE DUKE SPIRIT
"Like The Kills, The Raveonettes, Royal Trux and Sonic Youth, even, they've got the horny girl/boy thing going on. Frontwoman Liela Moss has got 'it' by the truckload - she's like Nico, only with the welcome addition of Debbie Harry's strut. If you desire squalls of porno feedback, violins and tunes that stick, combined with plenty to look at, then look no further." --BBC

THE TING TINGS
British boy/girl duo that's "equal parts grrrl power and Girl Power. Huh? Well, their music is danceable but not disco, punky and perky, vaguely angular but definitely accessible. It's chartpop made with a rock aesthetic." --Guardian

HOT TUB
"Led by three ladies of the local nightlife scene, Hottub is like a whirlpool of fluid rhymes and bubbling beats. With lyrics like 'I used to be an intellectual, but now I'm just into sexual,' the Oakland hip-hop crew began in 2004 with the goal of promoting 'relaxation, bringing guards down, some naughtiness, intimate conversations, jokes, fun and most of all LOVE.' --SF Chronicle
