Dæva (pronounced day-va) is the recording project of Gigi Mead, Brooklyn resident who lives with a cat named Aubrey and casts spells, slings books, and writes songs in her spare time. To borrow from Wake The Deaf, "Her debut EP, Beta Persei, is an experimental dream pop project which focuses on the only themes relevant to any experimental dream pop act worth their salt – love, loss and The X-Files."
Rainwater Swimming In Sunlight LP
'Swimming in Sunlight' is the debut release from Rainwater, a project helmed by songwriter Blake Luley. The album is an intimate, personal journey out of the dark wilderness of adolescence and self-loathing into the light of love and acceptance. These gentle, shimmering songs were written and recorded in a variety of places, from bathroom floors to studio spaces, over the course of eight years, charting the ups, downs, and quiet revelations of Luley’s young adulthood in Brooklyn, NY. Available digitally (iTunes, Spotify, etc), on CD (handmade by Pavonine Packaging ltd to 100), on cassette tape (ltd to 100) direct from Furious Hooves.

Temazcal The Future Belongs To Ghosts LP
'The Future Will Belong to Ghosts' is the debut album from Temazcal that works to explore the haunted experience we all seem to be in the midst of, concerned mainly with the idea of simultaneously being and not-being, of existing in-between, being both present and absent. Attempting to evoke both the terrifying and beautiful aspects of contemporary existence, 'The Future Will Belong to Ghosts' looks to inspire a sort of perpetual state of becoming, drawing attention to the in-between nature of our experience. Available digitally (Bandcamp) and on cassette tape (ltd to 50) direct from Furious Hooves.
