Ganser combines post-punk workmanship and noise rock tendencies, inspired by cinematic visuals and imagist language. Composed of keyboardist/vocalist Nadia Garofalo, bassist/vocalist Alicia Gaines, drummer Brian Cundiff and guitarist Charlie Landsman, equal parts Space Odyssey and Ghost World, this Chicago-based band channels anxiety’s heightened state to absurd ends.

In 2020, Ganser navigated the tricky task of releasing their LP Just Look at That Sky during the height of a pandemic, not realizing that its art rock tendencies, dark humor, and themes of internal emotional weather would resonate with the likes of Rolling Stone, The Quietus, Paste, Vice, Sound Opinions, Bandcamp, Brooklyn Vegan, and more year-end lists. They returned in 2021 with Look at the Sun, a collection of remixes by GLOK (Andy Bell), Sad13 (Sadie Dupuis), Algiers, Girl Band’s Adam Faulkner, and Bartees Strange.

Stress Positions is a punk band started in Chicago  in 2021. Their Ep, Walang Hiya (No shame) was released in may 2022.

Club Drippy is the amorphous moniker of Jonathon Freund, Chicago native and co-founder of electronic powerhouse Pixel Grip. Taking inspiration from sweaty raves, the ocean, and queer joy, Club Drippy absorbs and reflects his experiences through producing, DJing, and writing.
As resident DJ and promoter of DiSCOTHEQUE, Drippy presents his record collection with elements of synthpop, industrial, new beat, italo, and indie rock for an eclectic dance floor experience.
In addition to his work with Pixel Grip and Duke Davenport, Drippy released his ambient-techno debut EP ‘Made of Silk’ in December 2020.
