Mirah
Brooklyn-based Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn (b. 1974, Philadelphia) creates incorruptible independent pop music. Defined by her graceful songwriting and adventuresome recordings, Pitchfork has praised her “incredible voice—a versatile coo that can flit from low, sultry tones to high, airy falsetto in one breath.”

She has released over a dozen solo and collaborative recordings on K Records, Kill Rock Stars and various US domestic and foreign independent labels.

Collaborators include well-known producers Phil Elverum (The Microphones/Mount Eerie), Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), Tucker Martine, Guy Sigsworth and Calvin Johnson, songwriters and composers such as Thao Nguyen, Lori Goldston, Susie Ibarra, Jherek Bischoff, Tara Jane O’Neil and Khaela Maricich (The Blow) and visual and media artists such as Anna Oxygen of Cloud Eye Control, Britta Johnson and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.

Her latest release, Changing Light, was self-released on her own imprint, Absolute Magnitude Recordings.

Zeitlyn has toured the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand many times since 1998.
La Louma
La Louma
La Louma is the solo art-rock/pop project of multi-instrumentalist and former St. Vincent collaborator Lauren Ross, whose debut album dropped Nov 3, 2017 via Bitchwave, the feminist/queer collective and label she co-runs in Los Angeles. On her debut, she explores heavy subject matter in an upbeat atmosphere, merging her classical training with a strong DIY queer punk ethos. Meticulously handcrafted over hundreds of hours of solitude, La Louma’s palette includes thickly melodic woodwinds and brass, electric guitar and bass, impatient drums, tremolo vocal undercurrents, and metaphor-laden lyrics. The LP’s tone repeatedly shifts unexpectedly from dramatic desperation to quiet contemplation, from a determined sprint to utter immobilization. Musically mirroring La Louma’s vagabond mind, each of the album’s richly transportive scenes are colored by carefully chosen modalities, timbres, instrumentations, and arrangements.
