June Pastel
June Pastel
June Pastel’s debut, sits at the rare transitory space only available through processes of growth and motion. Conceived in Salt Lake City (songwriter Pena’s hometown) and realized in Baltimore (his current place of residence)—the band's debut All to Come shows an eclectic group with roots stretching to jazz, neo-soul, chamber music, 90s alt-rock, and electronic. Each of these worlds builds the collaged moment-to-moment vocabulary within the June Pastel universe.

For Peña, a generous bandleader, June Pastel is all about community: his songs are bases upon which his musical collaborators may find their own expression, around which relationships may form. June Pastel is a first—and important—step by Pena away from solo work, working for the reasonable alternative within the do-it-yourself mode: the communal ecology of doing it with others.
No Sun
Since their formation just a couple of years ago, Salt Lake City’s No Sun have been quietly crafting loud, confident, and modern shoegaze. Originally a solo project for singer/ guitarist Jordon Strang to experiment with, No Sun has since grown into a nuanced and voluminous four piece.

In the tradition of Swervedriver and Failure, and contemporaries like Nothing and Pity Sex, No Sun’s recently released, debut album ‘If Only’ swells with walls of reverb and texture. It’s shoegaze for those who can appreciate the loudest and dreamiest aspects of the genre. Lyrically, the album leans mostly toward introspection and existential doubt, and Jordon's coping with depression, anxiety, and love."
