The Ram Rams
The Ram Rams
The Ram Rams are a female-fronted girl punk band from Seattle that have been rocking dive bars across the Puget Sound since 2010. You'll hear nostalgic girl-power punk covers from the early 90s that you can sing along to, as well as originals with cheeky lyrics that have become local classics in their own right. Think the Donnas, Bikini Kill, and Bratmobile.
Clash Valian
Clash Valian
Clash Valian is the brain child of Greg Merrell, an amalgamation of sample-inspired contemporary compositions and basement-forged grimy rock songs . Compiled over the course of the last 10 years, his songs have been written in between his time playing with Pokemon Dad, The Friendly Cannons, and $2,000 Puma. The band has had one to four members at various times with Merrell being at the center of songwriting and vocals. Clash Valian’s music has been exploring the ether driven auditory landscapes of the accessibly odd. Whether it be struggling to accept the new norms and implications of a digital era, a grandmother who loses her ability to communicate, or a South African friend who's baijiu infused blood causes him to swim in toxic environments, Clash Valian’s songs are lyrically rich with darkly comical statements about the human condition.

Here’s what people have to say about projects that Merrell has been involved with:

“Surging raw power digs deep into the root of your soul and brings forth glimmering audio images and goose-bump worthy titillation similar to an LSD trip” – Shenzhen Local Music

“Up and coming math rock/post rock.” – The Nanfang

“Sounds frigin’ great” – Uniteasia.org

“… able to drive concepts of maths-angularity with the folding features of psychadelia effectively and the resulting out-put marks a difference of space. Guitars and voices are not used to add volume, rather paint the rich textures which gives the material its interest” – Emerging Indie Bands

“A rich mix of math rock rhythms tossed over autumnal indie rock melodies, it’s a confident piece of work.” – LiveBeijingMusic.com

The Square Feet
The Square Feet
The Square Feet are a grungey-slacker rock Seattle outfit with minimalist tendencies. They've harnassed the sonic, fuck-it-all nature of groups like Pavement and Dinosaur Jr. with the aesthetic of constant, dreary, drizzling Seattle. They are well experienced in the Seattle area with their members playing in Lagos, Yonder, and The Freehands over the past 11 years.
