Black Nite Crash
Black Nite Crash
Over their twelve years and twenty-three different line-ups, Black Nite Crash has continually melded the best elements of the psychedelic Sixties with Post-Punk angst and the reverb-drenched noise of the Shoegazer movement into an original concoction that feels simultaneously familiar and new. Continually inspired by everyone from the Stones and the Stooges to Cheatahs and the Church, and influenced by long, dark, intoxicating nights that turn into painful days-after, the fuzzy rock squall they conjure only slightly obscures their melodic pop underpinnings.
With two albums behind them (2008's "Array" on Custom Made Music and 2012's "Drawn Out Days" on Seattle's Neon Sigh imprint), a third, "Quiet Is the Enemy," is set for release this fall collecting the best parts of the last three years' worth of recording sessions.
Fotoform
Fotoform
Seattle’s Fotoform create beautiful guitar-based dreamy post-punk. Propelled forward by Kim House’s melodic bass and Garrett Croxon’s (Fleet Foxes, Erik Blood, Moon Dial) swinging backbeat, Kim’s vocals glide over intertwining guitars from Geoff Cox and Stephen Jones (Red Martian).

Taking their name from a mid-century expressionist photography movement, Fotoform recall the gauzy atmosphere of UK alternative (The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Lush, Slowdive, Siouxsie and the Banshees) with the immediacy of US indie and post-punk. A captivating and arresting live band, Fotoform will be releasing their debut LP in early 2017, following an ultra-limited hand-lathed acetate 7” single.

Fotoform draw from the band members’ history in shoegaze/darkwave veterans, C’est la Mort, who enjoyed critical attention in the US and especially Europe. After weathering multiple line-ups (some bordering on the Spinal Tap-esque: one drummer left because of narcolepsy; another moved to Belgium to work for the DEA), C'est la Mort released one album and contributed to a number of compilations (including a tribute to The Smiths, alongside Stars, Doug Martsch, Telekinesis, Wedding Present, etc). C’est la Mort began performing as Fotoform in late 2016.
