Apologist (Philadelphia, PA): Highly confessional ambient music focused on particular internal examination. Her work on No Rent (which she runs cooperatively) and Alien Passengers are examples of personal development through sound work.
Kyle Press: I met Kyle Press in 2008, when I saw his freak-rock band The Love Club for the first time. Kyle always seemed like the most inventive person in a room full of rockers, if that makes sense. In all of the bands he’s involved with (Impressionist, OhBree), he’s constantly pushing the sound further “out-there” and the results have been often excellent and always interesting. In parallel, as a active participant in Philly’s vibrant free jazz / improvisation scene, Kyle has reliably pushed against the more academic trappings of the genre; focusing on creating giant walls of sound rather than re-contextualizing jazz/classical norms in an improvisational environment.
