Upon meeting in Philadelphia in 2007, Attia Taylor and Corey Duncan
vowed to make music together. It was not until years later when Duncan
had moved home to Seattle and Taylor had taken a job in New York that
the pair began working on material via email. Over three years of
bicoastal collaboration Strange Parts was born. The project brings
together the minimal pop sounds of Taylor’s solo work and the
classical infused art pop of Duncan’s project Oh! Pears. This unlikely
union combines to create a
melodic art pop sound, rich with body moving grooves and toe tapping
hooks, drawing inspiration from the likes of Serge Gainsbourg, Ebo
Taylor, Billie Holiday, Broadcast , and writer Hermann Hesse.

Full Bush
FULL BUSH’s wild and raucous heavy-punk sound careens and caterwauls - their raw and siren wails provide a sense of catharsis, bringing you back to your first metal, post-rock/punk, and pounding no-wave experience.

Also, they're really fucking fun to watch live.

Bassist, Cassie O'Leary, put out a call on a local feminist group for people who wanted to play together. Adesola (drummer) and Kate (lead singer and rhythm guitarist) answered the call and met up at Cassie's home. They drank a lot of beer, talked about friendship, being a woman in Philadelphia, and jammed in her attic. Adesola met Jayne Rutter (lead guitarist/back up vocals) at a restaurant they both worked at in south Philadelphia where they bonded over their similar musical tastes. Shortly after, Jayne was brought into the crew and took the band to a new level of creativity and depth. Since then, Full bush has opened for Ron Gallo and toured with activist and punk legend Alice Bag. Their self titled album was recorded by Dave Downham at The Gradwell House in Haddonfield, NJ and dropped on August 15th, 2018.
"Full Bush reveal themselves as the rare kind of band that defies any expectation. Their songs unfold like stories from the wittiest person you know, so spontaneous they feel improvised but so seamlessly constructed you’d think they were rehearsed for years. And like a great story, once you hear the beginning, you can’t stop listening until you hear the payoff." - The Key
