Ambient experimentalist NATALIE CHAMI, the driving force behind TALSOUNDS, headlines tonight's show with her solo, improvised set of electronic mindfuckery. CHAMI is also a member of rising experimental trio GOOD WILLSMITH, who play the Bottle in two-and-a-half weeks as a part of the Hausu Mountain Fest. What a world. Azar Swan is the Brooklyn-based duo of ZOHRA ATASH & JOSHUA STRAWN. Flavorwire has described their music as "thoroughly idiosyncratic pop songs that are both fascinating and hellaciously catchy" and they even got pimped in USA Today, who says, "There’s nothing else out there that sounds like this, and if you’re lucky to be in a place where it’s warm right now this is going to resonate all the more.” Well, it sure as hell ain't warm, but maybe this will unfreeze our cold, dead hearts just a lil bit. DELPHIC ORACLE is is the moniker of musician, writer, fashion designer, and artist CHRISTIANA KEY, who hails from Florida, but moved to Brooklyn, via London, 8 years ago. Classically trained in violin, piano, and voice from an early age, she left the Classical Music program at UNF to pursue her interests in punk, rock, electronic, and experimental music. She began recording from her bedroom in 2006 and has also worked as a touring member of CULT OF YOUTH and ZOLA JESUS. RASPLYN is the solo project of CAROLYN O'NEILL, a Chicagoan who uses her experience with classical composition and film to create mystical and visual landscapes that are dark but beautiful, filled with textured layers influenced by world culture and fantasy. Constantly transforming her style as she experiments with adding vocal elements into her sonic environments, RASPLYN's debut album via Alrealon Musique will be released in 2014.
