Pearla is the project of Brooklyn-based Nicole Rodriguez, whose music radiates with indiscriminate awe—whether it’s the befuddling depths of nature or the profoundly strange spark of a dreaming mind—she takes it all as equal magic. Her debut album Oh Glistening Onion, The Nighttime Is Coming released on Spacebomb Records landed widespread acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR Music, Brooklyn Vegan, Consequence, Under The Radar, Talkhouse, Rough Trade Records, KCRW, and more. Pearla has played festivals including Wille Nelson's Luck Reunion, Nelsonville Music Festival, and SXSW, shared bills with San Fermin, Kacy & Clayton, A.O. Gerber, and Miss Grit, and performed sessions for WNYC, Paste, and Daytrotter among others. 


Sister. is a Brooklyn-based indie trio composed of Hannah Pruzinsky (they/she), Ceci Sturman (she/her), and James Chrisman (he/him). Senior year of college, Ceci wrote a song for a course assignment and asked Hannah, her roommate since freshman year, to sing it, and the two of them soon started gigging. In the five years since, they’ve been living together and writing songs that could only come from their friendship, trust, and openness. James joined in 2020, and the three of them grew close as collaborators and friends through the early days of the pandemic, during which they remotely recorded their 2020 debut EP Soft Spot. In 2021, Sister. followed up with their sophomore studio EP Something / Nothing. In October 2023, Sister. released their debut LP, Abundance. The album was largely self-recorded in Woodstock, New York in a friend’s cabin, where a nearby creek was constantly picked up in the mics, and rain on the roof periodically ruined vocal takes. The band was finishing overdubs in Hannah’s closet back in Brooklyn when Felix Walworth (Told Slant, Florist) offered to play on the album, so Sister. enlisted Alex Harwood (Bloomsday) to record Felix’s drums and later to mix the record. A final song was recorded in Felix’s bedroom, straight to tape. Abundance is a collection of songs about and made of friendship. Hannah and Ceci also run NYC indie showpaper and blog, GUNK.

Yours Are The Only Ears

yours are the only ears is the indie folk project of Hudson Valley based musician and producer Susannah Cutler. Her evocative poetry and empathetic storytelling create gentle catharsis and connection. Her songwriting excavates our darker emotions, connection to the natural world, and relational themes to create a mirror of honesty and safety.
