Arbouretum
For 15 years, Arbouretum has been exploring vast stretches of musical terrain, releasing five full-length albums on Thrill Jockey Records to widespread acclaim, as well as several short-run collections. Their sound has been characterized as walking a line between heavy psychedelia, doom, and folk rock, though not without a singular uniqueness, a quality that led The Guardian to proclaim them to be "One of the most distinctive voices around".

Since their origins in late 2002 through the present, Arbouretum's live shows have always been an exhilarating affair. Whether onstage at the legendary Carnegie Hall or in a smoky bunker in Brno, Czech Republic, their sets alternate between meditative drones, delicate melodic passages, and feedback-filled crescendos, connected all the while by founding member Dave Heumann's long, expressive guitar solos and a song-driven approach to collective improvisation.
Television Hill
Television Hill has been trafficking in folk futures and transmitting intermittently to Baltimore and vicinity for well over 7 years. The bands main impetus lies in the wily words and guitar work of singer/songwriter Rob Wilson who marshals his band members far afield through shorey blues, staggered stomps, and Winchester waltzes. Their debut release Twilight (Teneral 2005) received international attention and has enabled the band to establish a favorable foothold along the ever-expanding musical frontier of indie-Americana.
