  • Biography The women of NighTraiN were brought together as a concept band for an original stage play production called “Hot Grits.” In a process that was projected to take nine months, the women were assigned their instruments which they had to learn, write songs and begin gigging in the Seattle underground music scene in preparation for the play. The Band and music were very well received. Being very diverse in experience, age and backgrounds, the original women developed a profound friendship and connection in the music and decided to reunite after the stage play ended and formed NighTraiN. NTN offers a fresh take on the punk/funk/soul genres. Their sound is a heavy engine hum formed by the blunt bass rhythms of Selena "No Pick" Whitaker‐Paquiet. It is a heart beat held steady by the percussive stylings of Taryn "Hot Legs" Dorsey. It is dark heat strummed from the guitar of Nicole "Christ Child" Peoples and accompanied by the steam whistle wail of Rachael F. NTN is locomotive punk!

  • Biography From Tacoma, Washington, Si Si Si’s knockin’ out some wild trash in the vein of the Mummies (duh), Gasoline, and Supercharger. You know the drill: fuzzy bass guitar, cymbals everywhere, busted guitar riffs, infectious screamin’, and a tight groove. In other words: everything that’s good about rock’n’roll.

  • Biography Corespondents began in 2003 with Olie Eshleman and Doug Arney playing guitars in the living room. In late 2008, Kieran Harrison-Buhlinger started playing percussion, among other things and joined them. Corespondents' guitar-based musical stylings incorporate non-western instrumentaion such as the Vietnamese dan-bao and the Greek bouzouki, while still appealing to metal heads, noisers, guitar-wankers, audiophiles, tech-heads, swingers and the blues. Corespondents has also been featured in Lynn Shelton's indie film, "We Go Way Back" as well as in MTV.com's web series, "$5 Cover: Seattle" “Olie Eshleman, Doug Arney, and Kieran Harrison-Buhlinger are acutely sensitive players with fantastic chops, and their music efficiently transports you to a more antique-y place and time without sounding overly reverent or staid. Corespondents have that old-soul spirit in spades, but without the kitsch, thankfully.” -Dave Segal, The Stranger "Experimental, without a genre music on the musical mystery tramp side, Corespondents organically chop up Italian cowboy soundtrack guitar playing, circus rhythms, and woozy ragtime to make perfect night music for absinthe-sipping poets and whiskey-slurping marginals." -Chris Estey, KEXP Blog "Sentimental Cowboy Music For Dreaming Circus Workers Just Before Dawn Out In The Field Next To The Tiger Cages And The Cotton Candy Machine." -Jeffrey Taylor, Climax Golden Twins AFCGT And Wall Of Sound Records "Three superb musicians who span the musical map- from western swing to Bollywood steel and a good many things in between. They have a magical quality of appealing to just about everybody without fitting nicely into a style, often being pretty weird, and not having a singer. This album is the perfect album for a good many situations- dinner parties, acid trips, movie sequences, road trips, and the like." -Ms Valerie Park Distro "Sexy and confusing" -DJ Dropacat
