Olimpia Splendid are Heta, Jonna and Katri, an all-female trio from Finland. They formed the band in the Summer of 2010, having also played in the likes of Toblerones, Bananas, Snällas Blood, Hertta Lussu Ässä, Hockey Night and Kuupuu. Nuttu Nurin, their debut 7” offering c/o Fonal Records, is comprised of three exclusive, interlocking tracks.
Their debut album comes in May on Fonal Records!

"… the reason to come is to see Olimpia Splendid, who have stumbled into some true mindmeld dark juju ... seriously, this is like seeing the Dead C circa 1993, or Can in '71 ....”. John W. Fail

“… gets you wondering whether if Moe Tucker had been the guiding force in The Velvet Underground they would have sounded like this – and would have sounded better.”


Jason Urick has been crafting otherworldly electronic pieces since that late 90s. First under the name themoonstealingproject and then with Baltimore genre-less sound explorers Wzt Hearts. After two full lengths (Carpark/Hoss) Wzt Hearts disbanded and Jason began releasing sonic dreamscapes under his own name via Chicago's Thrill Jockey label.
Jason Urick explores a world of sound left to the far reaches of outer space. Building on the gentle ambient washes of sound from his debut LP Husbands, the more rhythmic and distorted tones of Fussing & Fighting and the gap between the familiar and the unfamiliar with I Love You. Jason has just recently released a new full-length "The Day" as a tape only release via Stockholm's Oma333 label.

Pitchfork review of the first single off of "The Day":


Lau Nau is the musical alias of Laura Naukkarinen - a singer-songwriter, composer, producer. Her debut album, ‘Kuutarha’, won acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Dusted, with The Wire naming the LP in their top 50 albums of 2005, and citing her Philadelphia show of that year amongst “60 concerts that shook the world”.

Lau Nau’s latest album ‘Valohiukkanen’ came out 2012, was nominee for a series of prestigious music prizes in Finland like the Teosto and Femma prize. The album continues the path laid down by the earlier records, but if her psych-folk roots are still visible then the branches are further reaching, the music imbued with a timeless, cinematic breadth of vision. Retaining her penchant for a fragile, spectral otherness, these ten interrelated snapshots draw the listener towards Naukkarinen’s idiosyncratic, finely honed soundworld, unconsciously paralleling other luminaries such as Smog, Sigur Ros, or Linda Perhacs with her singular sense of purpose. During the past years, Naukkarinen’s time has been spent in all manner of ways. Aside from giving birth to her second son she has opened for Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Lee Ranaldo in Helsinki on the bands' kind request, and played dates in New York and San Francisco, FatCat’s Open Circuit Festival in Belgium, Super Deluxe in Tokyo, and Shanghai Expo in China to name a few.

She has composed music for two full-length films: “Princess of Egypt”, which was a 2014 nominee for a Jussi prize, and "Home", contributed to a variety of compilations, and made many sound art installations. She has completed live scores to films, performed at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival with Matti Bye Ensemble, composed songs with string arrangements in the free-goth-folk group Maailma to their album "Speculum" and written theatre soundtracks.

Visible Cloaks is Spencer D and Ryan C. Operating in various forms for over a decade with a string of Japan-only CD releases, small run CDRs and cassettes as Cloaks, Neon Cloaks and now Visible Cloaks, the duo has moved within a loose-knit orbit of west coast artists including Eternal Tapestry(Ryan is a member), Starving Weirdos, the Root Strata label (Spencer is a former member of both RV Paintings and Operative) and Cameron Stallones's (aka Sun Araw) Sun Ark label (who released their most recent recording Visible). Their current work investigates both inverted pop structures and long-form collage in a fluid mix, often with vocoded or modulated voice, digital and analog mallet work, ethnographic samples. modular synths and other abstracted sounds, existing in a sound world similar to Spencer's own "Fairlights, Mallets and Bamboo" DJ mixes.
