May The Fourth Be With You Ep (S)IX: A Celebration Of The Music Of Sci-Fi

Not so far in the future, in a galaxy not so far away…

A Celebration of the Music of Science Fiction was planned, featuring songs about aliens, robots, lasers, time travel, and everything in-between; soundtrack themes from movies; and campy pop tunes played by bands in movies. It was all fair game.

Several brave, brave souls stepped up to join in on this venture…

Astronomers – Astronomers are a rock band from Charlottesville, Virginia. They write progressive pop songs with guitars and bass and drums and sweet melodies.

YonderPhonics – YonderPhonics, from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville VA, brings you driving rhythms & musical themes the likes of George Gershwin via The Black Keys; the ‘Yonder Sound’ is punctuated by rich lyricism reminiscent of Leonard Cohen & Fiona Apple.

Funktional Electrik – Every time they hit the stage, Funktional Electrik embarks on a journey to discover new and unusual soundscapes. Expect top notch musicianship, extensive improvisation, and highly danceable, infectious grooves.

Little Graves – Little Graves is an intense power trio that juxtaposes influences from punk, post-punk, grunge, prog rock, psychedelia, and noise with musique concrete, samples, and field recordings

Dogfuck – Dense bizarro rap from Phil Green of Cog Diss fame and glory. Fuck, not fucker.

Stray Fossa – “Comprised of brothers and childhood friends Nick Evans, Will Evans, and Zach Blount, Stray Fossa seamlessly blends smooth singer/songwriter melodies with a driving, gritty, indie rock vibe to create a complex, exciting sound. As a result of growing up playing music together in Sewanee, Tennessee, and taking a few years hiatus, Stray Fossa is an amalgamation of self-discovery as people and musicians, a new project acting as a celebratory reunion of personalities and musical styles.” – Grace Seekins

Goddess Ov Mindxpansion is an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, percussionist, and artist originally from Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Extreme isolation gave her the space she needed to develop the resourcefulness, independence, and imagination that typifies all of her work.
