MV & EE
Add To My Artists

MV&EE is a group of musicians focused around Matt Valentine, sometimes referred to as MV, and his partner Erika Elder. Matt Valentine was in the neo-psychedelic group, The Tower Recordings. While the duo record under many different names, including MV&EE Medicine Show and The Bummer Road, most of the records center around both artists and feature a rotating cast of additional musicians. Their style is self-described as "lunar ragas", with many of the lyrics dealing with celestial imagery. They combine Indian raga style composition (with increasing authenticity as they become more accomplished with time) with Appalachian folk and post-psychedelic electrical experimentalism. They use Western and Eastern acoustic instruments amplified and augmented with effects such as reverb, delay, and flange. Their compositions occasionally feature vocals, which are off-kilter and rambling, while seeming drugged.

Herbcraft
Add To My Artists

Herbcraft formed in late-2009 after the dissolution of Matt Lajoie's Cursillistas project. Taking cues from late-60s and early-70s psychedelic rock, acid folk, prog/space-rock, and German kosmische, Lajoie wrote and recorded the debut Herbcraft album "Discovers The Bitter Water Of Agartha" in a single day on borrowed equipment. The album was released in June 2010 on Hello Sunshine, sister-label of Woodsist Records. Lajoie put together a live band for tours to support the album, and released the mostly-live "Papers" cassette on Fuck-It Tapes in October 2010. This was followed in June 2011 by "Ashram to the Stars", Herbcraft's second full-length album on Hello Sunshine, another solo-recorded set that is much more heavy, dark, and abstract than the debut LP, with Japanese psych, minimalist composition, and cosmic jazz influences.

Herbcraft's live incarnation (Lajoie, Dawn Aquarius, Nicholas Barker, and Corinna Marshall) recorded its upcoming third full-length album, "In the Halls Of Shambala", in December 2011 with members of the band Mmoss. The album is due for release in Fall 2012.
