Emotional, production-heavy, but still raw. Headphone material for you and your lover to daisy chain to.  Additional production/mixing by William...

    Sacramento might be one of the sunniest cities in the country, but for some, it seems as if they're engulfed in a smog of crime and violence. Discrimination, police sirens and gun shots mask the voices of those trying to fight for what's right, while others thank a higher power for making it through another day. For those who acknowledge the system that is Sactown, and all of its hardships, will no doubt admire the efforts of Chuuwee and JR & PH7, for their latest video, "Meadowview Morning...

    K.I.D stands for Kids In Despair. This garage-pop duo consists of Kara and Bobby. All we know is that they have worked together at a convenience store as a waitress and clerk, and somehow, found themselves through music for a good reason. These two hail from the suburbs of Toronto, and they make gritty music filled with coming-of-age angst style lyrics that are down-right relatable.
