MIMICO “Mimico have recently opened for post-industrial grinders Pop.1280 as well as whimsical psychedelic one-man-band White Fence, and their VHS-era synth-pop courses bleakly somewhere between the dead-eyed confrontation of the former and the enervated drugginess of the latter.” - Jayson Greene, Wondering Sound “Chugging Krautrock with sludgy hard rock riffing and chilly goth atmospherics combine for a sound that’s familiar but never derivative” - Now Magazine MIMICO are a band from Toronto comprised of Ben Oginz, Jeremiah Knight and Nick Kervin. Named for a Toronto suburb, the group traffic in an expansive brand of synth driven post-punk.  The band formed in Toronto 2011, and have built a reputation with sterling live performances, opening for White Fence, Comet Control and Pop. 1280 among others, and have found a home in the city’s experimental scene alongside like-minded locals like, Zacht Automat, Fresh Snow and Not The Wind, Not The Flag. They have released a steady stream of singles over the last couple of years along with a self-titled cassette LP on Reel Cod Records in May of 2013, and a split 7” with Fresh Snow in November of 2014 to be followed by their LP, Incantations, in January of 2015.

Dust DUST is the brainchild of audio engineer Michael Sherburn and John Barclay, a founding member of D.I.Y. venues like 285 Kent and Bossa Nova Civic Club. While DUST is based in Brooklyn, for their multi-sensory live performances they are joined by Korean performance artist Greem Jellyfish and Berlin-based artist Angela Chambers. Perhaps it's DUST's sprawling connections to different corners of the creative world that draw them to cite "intertropical convergence zones" as inspiration for their new EP, Paradise Simulator.
