Minibeast
Minibeast
Minibeast is the musical creation of Peter Prescott (Mission Of Burma, Volcano Suns, Kustomized, Peer Group). Minibeast combines surf, psych, punk, easy listening, 60’s children’s music, and soundtrack influences to create instrumental soundscapes.

Live, Minibeast is a 3-piece band with Keith Seidel, Eric Baylies, and Peter Prescott.
The Royal Arctic Institute
The Royal Arctic Institute
The Royal Arctic Institute is an instrumental, post-punk, cinematic jazz trio. Members John Leon (guitar), Gerard Smith (bass), and Lyle Hysen (drums) combine 50+ years of experience (Phantom Tollbooth, Das Damen, Roky Erickson’s backing band, & more). Their music is “post-everything.”
Heroes of Toolik
Heroes of Toolik
"A rollicking carnivalesque experience, HEROES OF TOOLIK stretch out into the horizon without sacrificing a tight grooving grip — an explorative scat of minimalist blues, rock & roll, psychedelic pop, orchestral folk, gothic bluegrass, and theatrical art-punk. This focused yet spacious eclecticism reaches mastery on their forthcoming sophomore LP, Like Night.” (Aquarium Drunkard) Heroes of Toolik are a two veteran avant gardists, a hot latin trombone, an old-time country fiddler and a jazz master, who come together to make something strangely original--“deceptively catchy, hypnotically growling, post-Velvets grooves." (NY Music Daily). The evolving roster has been called a “who’s who of underground music”. (Big Takeover) “The group seems to hide in plain slight; lords of the underground.” (Aquarium Drunkard)
