Carla dal Fornos debut album You Know What It’s Like (2016) and follow up EP The Garden (2017) – both released on Blackest Ever Black – established her as a singular talent who navigates the inbetween zones of post-punk, industrial, narcotic dub and dream pop. Her newest record, “Look Up Sharp” (Kallista Records), is an evolutionary leap from the thick fog and pastoral stillness of the two former records. Live she performs as a duo with multi-instrumentalist and electronic musician Mark Smith. She also holds down a monthly NTS show featuring original productions alongside diverse inspirations ranging from minimal synth to folk and art rock.
Ken released a slew of mysterious, imaginative full-lengths since 2010, on labels such as Lullabies for Insomniacs, EM Records, RVNG Intl, Discrepant and Yerevan Tapes. His space has long since been established as one he occupies alone, unique in both it’s playfulness, roots in serious and reflective, deep spirituality and a connection to the environment of Ken’s inhabitation, the cityscape of the Kanagawa Prefecture of Tokyo, where Ken lives and works.
