THE AMERICAN DOLLAR (Queens, NY | Yesh)
...
Started by high school friends John Emanuele and Richard Cupolo from Queens, NY in 2005, The American Dollar creates cinematic, electronica-tinged instrumental rock. The duo fuses processed drums, spacious keyboards and powerful organ swells with electric guitar and bass, creating deep sonic textures while maintaining the passion and energy of a live band. The swirling soundscapes build and swell, punctuated by glitchy beats, breathing and expanding into crashing guitars and soaring leads: precisely constructed symphonies for a new era.

See the American Dollar perform on their Spring 2011 US/Canada Tour. Performance will be accompanied by live visuals and feature tracks from all of their releases.

MIA VERKO (Montreal | L'Oeil du Tigre)

Mia Verko is a band that likes to rock. But not “rock” as in we’re-gonna-bash-your-brains-in-until-your-head-looks-like-an-omelette. No, we prefer to think of ourselves as a tonic for what ails you. You might think that’s a quote from BB King describing the blues – and you’d be right. Which is not to say that we’re a blues band. No, we’re more of an enthuse band, because that’s what we’d like to do to you. There’s too much dead weight in the world. We’re trying to rally support for the hopeful types in the crowd. All is not lost. In fact, we’ve come a long way, babycakes.

SIBIAN & FAUN (Montreal | 1234567890)

These boys have been killing it with their unique take on bass music; part future-hop, part garage, part rnb with beautiful textures and atmospherics throughout. S&F are bass music producers on the rise, and are an act to watch in 2011.
