Self Defense Family
Self Defense Family are one of the most interesting bands in contemporary independent music. Formed in 2003 in Albany, New York, they are now a musical collective spread across two US coasts and Europe. Their musical output is as varied as their curiosity and ambition. At first influenced by revolution summer and melodic Dischord bands, in recent years the band has grown into a new phase where they explore post-hardcore territory reminiscent of Lungfish and Wilderness, as well as delve into the alt-country of Drive-By Truckers. After a full-length on Revelation Records, Self Defense have most recently released several LPs and EPs on Deathwish Inc as well as the 12" MLP "Duets" on Iron Pier, as well as many other 7"s and EPs.
Founded in late 2010, the instrumental trio known as Sannhet has amassed a diehard audience within Brooklyn, NY’s broad underground music circuit through their abundant live performances throughout the borough, always choreographed with electrifying visuals. Known Flood, Sannhet’s sprawling debut LP, features nearly forty-five minutes of their electrified post-metal, fueled with domineering riff-building movements and intense percussive hostility, unifying in a slightly blackened and trance-inducing atmospheric style, captured by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold… The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) and mastered by Carl Saff.
