SISU - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
SISU
SISU is Sandra Vu. The LA-based singer/multi-instrumentalist layers airy, harmony-laden vocals over dreamy synthwave, which has been described as “Smithsian shoegaze” (Village Voice) and “Nightmarish Beach House” (SB Independent). She’s left her post as drummer of Dum Dum Girls to focus full-time on SISU’s upcoming "Hard Water" single and full length album (due out Fall of 2016). Live, SISU includes David Del Sur of Flowers of Evil on bass guitar, and Julianna Medeiros, also of Dum Dum Girls, on keyboards.

“I’m pushing myself as a producer, a writer, and a player. I’ve been in solitude for the last year hammering it out in pieces. I was adamant about producing because I needed to know what I was going to sound like by myself, without anyone else’s influence. I put myself on an island to see what parts would survive. I did that with the songs too. When you play in other groups, you give a part of yourself and when it comes back, it’s unrecognizable. I had to pick up the pieces, reexamine, shut off other voices and listen to my own
Azar Swan
Brooklyn's Azar Swan were catapulted into the spotlight toward the end of last year after lighting up blogs across the globe with their debut track 'Amrika'. Founding members Zohra Atash and Joshua Strawn have stepped out of the shadows once more with 'Lusty', a pulsating three minute slog through swells of frighteningly resonant percussion and ominous bass rumbles.

The spectre of their past incarnation as an instrumental ensemble appears at the midway point; distorted whirrs of synthesizer and hollow industrial clanks come to the fore, gripping at Zohra's ghostly pipes and squeezing out the kind of twisted, tribal incantations perfected by These New Puritans on Hidden.
