DELICATE STEVE
“Sun-kissed, acid-drenched, at times dissonant and at times blissfully melodic, Wondervisions brings to mind an even more out there Animal Collective or an instrumental incarnation of MGMT’s Congratulations recorded with the same old gear as Slanted And Enchanted.” — Au Magazine

"Flush with six-string personality, Wondervisions shifts smoothly from Pavement’s psychedelic cowlicks ('Welcome-Begin') to Dirty Projectors’ zigzagging Afro-riffs ('Butterfly') to the synth and acoustic slide guitar of heartbreaking march 'Don’t Get Stuck (Proud Elephants).'” — Spin

"A true child of his labelmeister, David Byrne, “Delicate” Steve Marion translates the felicities of West African guitar pop into an inventive instrumental hodgepodge. Nothing overly heavy or insipid to ponder here, unless you’ve got a problem with unalloyed joy." —Village Voice

Dana Buoy is the solo output of Dana Janssen, 1/3 of psych-rock heroes Akron/Family. Dana Buoy’s debut album, Summer Bodies, is a rhythmic and vibrant dedication to the joyous feelings of summer love, connection, and affirmation. It's a dream pop record combining elements of Afro beats, synth pop, and what Buoy refers to as “Tropicore." The songs connect the dots between Paul Simon and Drake, providing a sonic ride from the beach party to the after party.

Though Sacramento producer Raleigh Moncrief's march through music has been tireless, it's happened largely behind the scenes. A longtime collaborator to prolific Hella drummer Zach Hill, the two have made beautiful noise together both on the road and on record (see Hill's 2008 Anticon/Ipecac solo LP Astrological Straits, and their joint album Who Do You Think You Aren't?). He's been Marnie Stern's go-to touring guitarist, the master of a freewheeling post-rock trio called What's Up?, and producer/engineer to Dirty Projectors, with whom he spent three months in a Portland warehouse tirelessly tracking the band's contemporary classic Bitte Orca. In 2011, he released his first album, Watered Lawn.

"Watered Lawn reads as an attempt to marry the acoustic, folky tendencies left over from a childhood spent “climbing trees, damming gutters, drawing things and starting fires” in the hippiest place on Earth with the blips and bleeps of computer-made music, a meandering daze of shifting beats and cascading guitars. A fuzzy analog hum, Moncrief’s high indie falsetto and the emotional sweep of his sonic palettes stir up nostalgia reminiscent of Animal Collective and Neon Indian." --CMJ.com
