Depressed Buttons (The Faint DJs // Mad Decent) & Afghan Raiders!

*Depressed Buttons*

Most commonly known as three-fifths of the influential indie synth outfit, The Faint, Clark Baechle, Todd Fink, and Jacob Thiele have begun their journey into the future of sound with their new project Depressed Buttons. With a filthy lust for synthesizers, the band creates all their own tracks leaving listeners entranced and entangled within a web of angular stabs and thick pads. Don’t let the word “depressed” fool you, a button that's depressed isn't sad, it's turned on, which is exactly what their new EP QWERTY does to listeners

*Afghan Raiders*

The Las Vegas duo known as Afghan Raiders is composed of Mikey Francis and Vincent "Beans" Campillo. Their dark riffs, huge beats, and energetic live performances create a blend of music that bridges the gap between electronic music, house music, grunge and pop music. The Afghan Raiders broke onto the Las Vegas scene in 2008 with their debut EP Future Thinkers / Solid Gold. They release their music on their own label, Badical Beats. The Afghan Raiders' quick rise in popularity has allowed them to play significant shows such as the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC, SXSW in Austin, and the west coast club circuit. Notable events include Dim Mak's Cinespace Tuesdays, Blow Up LA, and Dance Right in Los Angeles, Blow Up SF in San Francisco, and the Filter/Ben Sherman Rock Royalty party and the Filter/SEMA party in Las Vegas. The band has performed with artists such as YACHT, Wallpaper, Classixx, No Age, Handsome Furs, and Metronomy, and have created remixes for bands including Depeche Mode, Neon Indian, The Faint, Phoenix (band), and Black Lips. Their remix of the Black Lips and GZA collaboration track, "The Drop I Hold", won Filter Magazine's Remix Contest in August 2009.
