Holy Golden is the multifaceted musical world of Leslie Schott and Andrew Valenti. who met during a lunar eclipse on Martha's Vineyard and soon began crafting mythological mini-worlds into home-recorded albums, music videos, short films, and photo stories.  Holy Golden's music blends euphoric dream-pop with lo-fi garage rock to create songs that feel both vulnerable and mysterious.  They have released two full-length albums, several music videos, and a new EP, toured throughout the US twice and will release a new album, Otherworld, recorded from a historic ballroom in Newport, Rhode Island, will be released February 2 along with the single from the album,  "Arrival" .

Money Chicha is an Austin, Texas based group featuring members of the Grammy-award winning Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma and its offshoot funk outfit Brownout. They play a fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched and percussion-heavy music inspired by the sounds of Peru and Colombia in the 60’s and 70’s, sometimes called “Chicha” music, known for Latin beats, psychedelic surf guitar pyrotechnics and melodies influenced by the indigenous culture of the Andes mountains. Money Chicha is a modern translation of this South American musical style by highly skilled veteran artists.  Money Chicha’s debut album Echo en Mexico was released in July 2016 on Vampisoul/Munster records, and they have been featured in numerous compilations and tours.
