It’s not easy for people with strange, sometimes puzzling minds to control the sounds in their heads and effectuate them into meaning through sound. Noah Champ, Los Angeles native expatriated to New York, has one of those elusive minds: neither here nor there, but somewhere in between, constantly building and re-building upon the expanses of thought. His music, penned field trip, exposes a deeply-altered perspective, horrified and charged by new environs and feelings. Unlike many, Champ has successfully been able to materialize the emotional voids at the core of his person, and has etched them on tape for us to indulge in.

Champ moved to New York in what proved to be a deeply-altering time not only for him, but for his new home’s music scene. The beau monde-induced demise of dominant venues like Death by Audio and 285 Kent prophesied the inevitable extinction of the tight-knit, music-first rooms that incubated records the band regarded as scripture.

Wishing to experience these space’s ephemeral legacy and mythos, Champ (singer/drums), joined by Nico Geyer (guitar), Phillip Braun (synthesizers), and Jason Park (guitar), sprung on an opportunity to play at Palisades in late 2014, having since been joined by Will Sacks (bass). Another year of playing and ambling in New York finds field trip tapping into further reaching sounds, connecting the dots between the likes of Factory Records alums, early trip hop, and space-age California. The band plans to release their debut LP, Horror Vacui, in the Fall of 2016.
Twiga
Twiga
Twiga formed as an outlet for Dave Lucas' love of simple, poppy, unpredictable guitar riffs. This Brooklyn based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist enlisted Justin Krim (Guitar), Jackie Perrone (Bass) and Lauren Barbato (Drums) to bring these jangly pop songs to life. The band’s history goes back eight years and runs to and fro Northwest Indiana, Chicago, Ithaca, Rochester, Jersey, and Brooklyn (they think they'll stay here, for now).

After a year of writing, recording, and working with creative partners like Converse Rubber Tracks and Headcount, Twiga is releasing their first official EP, Fledglings, on 7” white vinyl via us (North End Records). Dingus calls it “...the perfect introduction to a perfect first EP for a perfect band.” Twiga is currently in the process of working on new material, while experimenting with new lyrics, sounds and melodies.
