Nosretep makes wild instrumental music that combines all three members diverse musical backgrounds. Mike Peterson of many local metal, jazz, and experimental bands plays drums and effects like a madman, cutting up the beat in ways many wish they could. Andy Sells, who is usually a drummer for afrobeat, electronic music, and psych jazz plays bass in his rhythmically unconventional style. Guitarist/composer Igor Abuladze plays guitar over, under, and on top of the beat in a virtuosic fashion that brings to mind some of the great innovators in his field.
Sister Girlfriend -
Sister Girlfriend is a synth-obsessed electronic pop band from Seattle, made up of best friends David Balatero, Rob Hanlon, and Ryan Batie, and friend-to-all-who-are-willing Chris Icasiano on drums. They imagine a future where every groove bumps and every synth sparkles. They are forward-looking but backward-leaning, paying homage to the Paisley Park scene, blue-eyed soul, and fledgling house music of the eighties while taking cues from dense electronic pop contemporaries like Rustie and Hudson Mohawke. Sister Girlfriend’s sole aim is to put a boogie in your butt, your heart, and your brain.
