This guy is half robot and half human! Though he is an "electronic artist", Brian Petty manages to infuse a human feel in everything he touches! We love him in a NON-sexual way! See brianpetty.com and his Myspace page
Tyler and Stephanie Ritter of Chicago are Shalloboi. They used to live in Portland and moved to Chicago where they are happier. (Note they arent from Portland or Chicago). Anyway, no matter where Tyler and Stephanie are they are constantly creating beautiful analog recordings. We also love Shalloboi in a NON-sexual way! Myspace page and website shalloboi.com
Linsay Kaplan + Andrew Wilshusen
Lindsay is very nice and very humble and very good at everything she does. She is so talented that when you play her song on headphones you will think that she is right there next to you trying to seduce you in the butt..You will also feel the same way about Andrew, if thats what floats your boat.. Good stuff!
