::Charalambides (TX)
The ultimate spiritual Texas higher-key music consisting of organic psychedelic guitar dialogue and incantatory vocal mantra. Simply put, one of the very greatest psychedelic bands of the last few decades, mostly around the core sound of guitarist Tom Carter and guitarist-vocalist Christina Carter. This is 'seeker' guitar music of the very highest order--slippery, elusive and rewarding to those who'd suspend disbelief and live for a time in the space of their sound.

::Cherry Blossoms
Peggy Snow and John Allingham's longrunning folk band.

::Bilders (Dunedin, NZ)
Writer and musician Bill Direen with American Bilders lineup of Matt Swanson (bs) and Chris Davis (dr). Poet, novelist, songwriter, musician and playwright Bill Direen was one of the forefathers of the Flying Nun scene in New Zealand. He is a consistently great and very prolific songwriter, often as Bilders, and with a diverse roster of accompanists over the years.

::Brandon Seabrook Trio (NY)
Free jazz string trio of guitarist Brandon Seabrook, cellist Daniel Levin, and upright bassist Henry Fraser
"From the idiosyncratic musical mind of guitarist/composer Brandon Seabrook comes his latest album Convulsionaries (Astral Spirits, September 2018). In his close to two decades in NYC, Seabrook has garnered international acclaim for his sui generis approach to the electric guitar, one which astounds with tremolo pyrotechnics and an entropic sensibility. While those elements are in full effect on Convulsionaries, they’re met with a mature and thorough sense of dynamics, pace, groove, and feeling. Joining Seabrook on this release are the young upright bassist Henry Fraser (Anthony Coleman, The Full Salon) and Daniel Levin(Tony Malaby, Mat Maneri), two revolutionary string players who have been working in various creative ensembles in Brooklyn for years. Together, the string trio tackles Seabrook’s thorny compositions, which perpetually surprise and unseat the listener throughout the album’s trajectory. The trio’s frightening rhythmic precision oscillates between ominous repeating ostinatos; cathartic, angular, and intricate counterpoint; and a massive dynamic range which can change in a nanosecond. Convulsionaries is the sound of three restless virtuosos, making a bold statement, guiding listeners through a gauntlet of emotional spaces with the aid of these structural assemblages, turning impending doom into a deep cathartic release."
