WENDY EISENBERG (https://wendyeisenberg.bandcamp.com)
NYC guitarist, vocalist, banjo player Wendy Eisenberg has been making waves in the avant jazz & outsider rock scenes for the last 5+ years both as a collaborator and a solo artist. Their solo work is influenced by jazz and improvised music while they remain a songwriter and a storyteller at heart. Striking a seamless intersection of these forms Eisenberg lets their guitar and banjo notes meander along until they become entangled with the vocal lines, dancing together for a moments before going their separate ways. Angular guitar notes bounce and roll with rhythmic ease. Jazz infused tones become heavy with distortion only to trickle back into a wayward stream of languid chords. Eisenberg is a unique voice living at the tangled crossroads of avant jazz, folk tradition, free improvisation and experimental rock.
JONI VOID (https://jonivoid.bandcamp.com)
Montreal based music concrete / avant pop artist Joni Void (Constellation Records) weaves layers of samples, including piano phrases and fielding recordings into an intricate dance of snipped beats, sweeping loops and subtle jingles. Haunting flourishes become beautiful beats. Abstract rhythms are born out of glitched electronics alongside the swaying reverberations. Tape loops embrace the sonic waves as they transform themselves into a new piece of piano accompaniment. Playful percussion from the collage junkyard gives Jon Void's collaged compositions a sense of minimalistic urgency, if only for a second before the aural landscape morph yet again.
