Panda Riot formed in Philadelphia while Brian Cook and Rebecca Scott were working on short films. Soundtracks turned into songs and Panda Riot was born. After moving to Chicago, they expanded the band and in 2011 dropped the Far and Near EP. They recently released a limited edition 7”, Serious Radical Girls, in May of 2012. Their new record, Northern Automatic Music, is set to be released on February 19th on Saint Marie Records.

“Shoegaze is not dead” says Chicago, IL band Lightfoils. Formed in Autumn of 2010, five friends (guitarist Zeeshan Abbasi, vocalist Nicole Baksinskas, bassist Cory Osborne, drummer John Rungger, and guitarist Neil Yodnane) came together to play the type of music that naturally drives them. Taking their name from the scientific discovery that light has ability to lift and steer objects, Lightfoils aspires to create complex music that sends the listeners on a musical journey that ultimately catapults them into a state of pure sonic-infused reverie. As they transport their listeners and send them on that voyage, they too take themselves on their own flight, with a final destination of establishing a unique sonic signature in the Shoegaze scene.



From their very first show, Lightfoils have set the bar, garnering local and long distance bookings and even a television appearance. Despite their relative “newness” as a group, Lightfoils’ members individually are seasoned Shoegazers and in a short amount of time they have managed to share the stage with the likes of Dead Leaf Echo, Screen Vinyl Image, Chatham Rise and Ringo Deathstarr just to name a few.
