Niecheć – Polish for reluctance – displays exactly the contrary of what its name says. They use contrabass, piano, guitar, and percussion to play rebellious jazz. Slightly experimental, they combine their own Polish jazz tradition with psychedelic rock and influences from film music. The result is an original interlocking which should bring fireworks to the stage!

Microexpressions is a project led by singer, songwriter and producer Micha Stambulski. His style – built around avant-pop takes inspiration from a very eclectic blend of different genres like indie rock, synth pop, noise pop, post rock and recently even r’n’b and mainstream pop. Last two EPs – Deep Snow (2010) and Lie In Wait (2011) had dozens of enthusiastic reviews referencing Microexpressions as one of the most promising young Polish projects. Currently Michal is working with producer / dj Marcin Sipiora (BWSounds) on a long-awaited debut LP to be released early 2013. You should hear them live!

TWILITE : This band has nothing to do with sweet vampire blood or adolescent hysteria. Not yet in any case. These Polish friends released their second album last year, under the title QUIET GIANT and can now harvest what they have sown with their unique sound. Vulnerable voices and acoustic guitars like José Gonzalez are combined into a varied set of solid songs and beautiful dashes of melancholy. Ideal for those who love the mix of unadulterated indie and singer-songwriter music.
