jo passed
Once the pen name of multi-instrumentalist Joseph Hirabayashi but now a full-fledged four-piece, jo passed is a revelation in experimentalism, creating music from the dichotomy between airy vocals and gloomy cacophony. Having previously played Sled with experimental punk band The SSRIs and the neo-psychedelic group Spring, Hirabayashi and crew now punch out notes and noise with even greater aplomb.

The Avulsions
Taking cues from their violent moniker and haunting strains of bedroom rock, The Avulsions marry the jangled nerves of tensely-wound guitar and brooding bass with skittering percussion that dips fearlessly into the macabre. Hypnotic and brooding, this is the sound of true dystopian futurism.

Boyhood is a spooky post-grunge band that features just the perfect amount of old school, retro vibes. The spectral synth lines and eerie vocals match up with groovy basslines and tasty melodies, making a mood that is as infectious as it is delicious.

Burnt Shrines
Having already opened for Lightning Bolt and Protomartyr at past editions of Sled Island, it comes as a bit of a shock that May 2018 marks the release of the first-ever full-length by Burnt Shrines. That said, the noisy psych band has built their reputation on being elusive. They keep a corrosive tension in their plodding rhythm section and gloom-laden guitars, only delivering climax when the moment is absolutely right.
