Lucius
Lucius
When they wrote their self-titled EP, Lucius was living in an old victorian house in Brooklyn’s Ditmas Park. They found the place on Craigslist, not knowing it was a recording studio and music school for 60 years prior. There were so many treasures that had been left behind – like the 100 year old Steinway piano that would nurture their writing habits. The four-story musical fortress also housed 8 other musician friends and would soon open their doors to bandmates, Danny Molad and Peter Lalish and later, Andrew Burri.

Holly and Jess have had a relationship filled with coincidences. Their lives are uniquely in sync. “When we were ready to make our record we felt it was imperative that the recording reflect that synergy. None of us were concerned with trying to sound like ‘a band’, we just wanted to create a unique environment for each song to sit in.” Much of their record is about these unique experiences, told from the same perspective, at the same time, with the same sentiment. Two voices as one.

Lucius has been described by the New York Times as having “luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies”, by Seventeen Magazine as “alluring and magnetic” and by NPR as " a fabulous band playing such infectious pop songs". Their self-titled debut EP was recorded and produced in the Ditmas Park house where the band was formed. Their full length album is due for release Autumn 2013.
Spirit Kid
Spirit Kid
Spirit Kid is the musical moniker of songwriter Emeen Zarookian, backed by members of Boston bands Babydriver and Bent Shapes. Started in the mid-2000s as a solo project, Spirit Kid was officially formed in 2010 with the release of his debut self-titled album on the RPL Audio imprint.

The Boston based Indie-Pop band has since released a string of singles (7" and cassette) and an EP, supporting acts such as Eli "Paperboy" Reed, Zeus, Darwin Deez, and Here We Go Magic, throughout New England and down both coasts. The music has also seen several placements in film, TV, video games, and online videos.

The latest offering is a 2-song cassette and digital single entitled "Innocent Blues". Co-produced by TW Walsh (Pedro The Lion), the song boasts a Fleetwood Mac-esque 70's groove, while its B-Side "Where Did You Sleep" retains the jangly-pop and wistful harmonies that Spirit Kid is known for.

Emeen is currently hard at work co-producing album number two with Jeremy Mendicino (Pretty & Nice) which will be released Fall 2013.
