- PalbertaIn an industry that favors niche branding and subgenre packaging, Palberta is a difficult band to place. Their music is free and uninhibited in a way that makes it all their own. Often, Palberta songs are marked with a child-like communication — chants and lullabies are met with snarling tantrums, while their instruments coo and careen towards an often abrupt finish. Their playful approach to writing produces work that is hyper-emotional — as jarring as it is soothing and as loopy as it is sinister.Palbetra was formed when Lily Konigsberg, Anina Ivry-Block, and Nina Ryser met while attending Bard College. They honed their sound in basements across the Hudson valley, and quickly gained a reputation for their brazen and feverish live shows. Through prolific touring and recording, they have developed a dedicated nation-wide following without the aid of a major label. Outside of the band, the three of them actively pursue solo endeavors, with Palberta serving as a culminating force – a band driven by uncompromising personality.MistressesMistresses – a duo born out of circumstance and based simultaneously in Hudson, NY and Asheville, NC – comprised of members of Buke and Gase and Ahleuchatistas –Dance! Fun! Inner and Outer-space – Arone Dyer’s therapeutically catchy vocals push a fourth dimension onto her simple yet deeply encompassing synth riffs as they tumble on high heat in drummer Ryan Oslance’s organic laundromat. Together, they beat the grease out.
