Clan of Xymox
Formed in Amsterdam in 1984, Clan of Xymox became one of the mainstays of the 4AD label. Along with label mates such as Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance the Clan’s dark electro-gothic approach to music quickly became the benchmark by which all other bands to follow were judged.
In its long and storied history, Clan Of Xymox has developed a signature dark electro-gothic sound that has made the act adored around the world. With the new album, Matters of Mind, Body and Soul, the band explores its signature, melancholic sound, as evidenced by standout tracks such as “I Close My Eyes” and “I’ll Let You Go.”
The Bellwether Syndicate
The Bellwether Syndicate are a group of Chicago-based operatives of the sonic avant-garde, intent on speaking truth to power with a sharp tongue.
Fronted by veteran artist William Faith (of Faith and the Muse) and Sarah Rose (aka DJ Scary Lady Sarah), The Bellwether Syndicate are coloring outside of prescribed genre lines, choosing here to push the boundaries of style and substance into something relevant and vital.
Forming in Minneapolis in 1994, autumn has always sought to create melodies that get the listener to feel something deeply, that have the ability to haunt you in some way after the fact.
Autumn had a busy 2018, releasing their latest full-length album, “chandelier,” on Sett Records, on March 23 and touring with darksider legends, Clan of Xymox.
Paul Robb is a founding member of Information Society, a musical collective which has been recording and performing for over twenty-five years. After emerging from the Minneapolis underground in the mid-1980s, the group stormed onto the national scene with their international cult classic “Running,” one of the most influential electro/freestyle tracks of all time.
Led by founder/producer Paul Robb, the group went on to release numerous Top 40 hits, notably the No. 1 smash “What’s on Your Mind (Pure Energy),” as well as “Walking Away,” “Think,” and “Peace and Love, Inc.”. Numerous national and international tours followed; outside the United States, the group is especially popular in Scandinavia, Spain, Japan, and South America.
After departing Tommy Boy/Reprise Records in the mid-90s, the group returned to its electro-industrial roots on several independent releases. Re-releases of both “Running” and “What’s on Your Mind” have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance/Club chart in recent years.
