Based out of Brooklyn via New Orleans, Home Video wrote their first song “Melon” in the middle of a freezing winter in 2003. Collin Ruffino and David Gross developed their minimalist sound dichotomy of rich bass beats thumping along to arpeggiated warm synths and thus spawned their first EPs on acclaimed Warp Records.
Since then they’ve toured across Europe with Blonde Redhead, have been remixed by DJ Sasha, and garnered attention for their latests releases on BBC 1 and NME.
Port St. Willow
Port St. Willow is the project of Nick Principe, begun in 2009 and continued between a move from Portland, OR to Brooklyn, NY. His latest full length Holiday is a meditation on family and self. Somewhere between the lush soundscapes and Philip Glass-esque tones, Nick sings melancholic melodies revolving around distance and time.
After returning to Minnesota from teaching music to children in Palestine, lead guitarist Blake Luley met up with once roommate Craig Creighton and began to piece together sparse psychedelic folk music. The two moved to Brooklyn and assembled a group of five that would soon include New Jersey natives Neil Archarya, Miles Waltuck, and Aviva Stamfer, who were Luley’s high school band mates. Their self-titled album was released last year on Mecca Lecca Records, with a video directed by Michael Pisano for their single “Needles and Pins.”
