Gregory and the Hawk is a project led by the captivating vocal talents of native New Yorker Meredith Godreau, who has been performing under said moniker to massive DIY success for five years now. In what is a staggering accomplishment for an artist without a label, manager or booking agent, she’s sold in excess of 15,000 self-released singles, bringing about a groundswell of support on the internet that has resulted in over 17 pages of fans covering her songs on YouTube, also receiving around 60 fan letters a week – half of these from the UK. FatCat stumbled upon Godreau completely by chance at Brooklyn’s Southpaw one evening, and were held rapt (along with the rest of the audience). A month later she was in the studio working on what would become ‘Moenie and Kitchi’, which following a number of self-released works will be her first album for the label.

Lion Cub is the new project from the former members of beloved Kill Normal Records band La Guillotine and features friends from Aeroplane, 1929. With their giddy mixture of organic instrumentation reminiscent of their rural New England background and the sleek rhythms of electric drums and looped beats Lion Cub is a constantly shifting and progressing take on classic pop music.

Plume Giant is a psychedelic folk trio from New York, Durham, and Minneapolis. If they were perfumes, they would be lavender, ginger, and honey, and if they were legumes, they would be parsnips, parsnips, and parsnips. They like each other a lot, so they practice all day and are really good. Influences include Joni Mitchell, CSN, and Radiohead.
