Peter Michel is a 22 year old Seattleite who creates music under the alias Hibou. Michel toured North America and Europe as the drummer of Captured Tracks’ band Craft Spells. After a year of non-stop touring, he felt his life with the band had run its course, and that it was time to begin creating his own music. In January of 2013, he released 2 songs, and soon after received positive press recognition. In June of 2013, Dunes EP was released, which was featured by NME, Pitchfork, Line of Best Fit, Noisey, and more. Hibou released his debut self titled LP on Barsuk Records in September of 2015, and is currently on tour.

Scotty Smith grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of the Puget Sound and Cascade Mountains in his hometown of Everett, Washington. Instead of exploring nature, however, he spent his time discovering psychedelic pop sounds in his parents’ garage. All that fiddling away from the bright blue sky has paid off. He assembled drummer Richie Owen and bassist Derek Johnston to form Fauna Shade in 2013, and now they’ll release their debut LP, Baton Rouge, on April 28th.Lead single “Marzipan” is a strange, swirling, wonderful example of what Smith is capable of. Guitars alternate between jaunty strolls and rippling reverb, feeling like rolling waves of drug-induced color. There’s even a Floydian outro of zapping electronic wiggles. But the most fetching aspect of the track is Smith’s voice itself. It’s somewhere between T. Rex’s Marc Bolan and WU LYF’s Ellery James Roberts, part back-toothed growl, part heady vibrato.
