Merge Records artists Vertical Scratchers are somewhat new on the scene, but their members have been at it for some time. The California-based duo is comprised of John Schmersal–who spent time in Brainiac, Enon, Crooks on Tape, Caribou & Crooks on Tape–and Christian Beaulieu, of Triclops! & Anywhere.

Their songs are punk-quick shots of infectious pop goodness, and we were excited to host them at the Bureau. Check out this quick sampling of the band as they perform “Turn Me Out”, and “These Plains” from their debut album, Daughter of Everything.”

Last winter, indie harpist and vocalist Mikaela Davis embarked upon a tour in support of her latest release, the Fortune Teller EP. In January, the Upstate New York resident stopped by the Wilderness Bureau in advance of her Black Cat show and played a couple of dreamy pop songs from the record. Watch as she and her band perform “Feels Like Forever” and a medley of “Lady Lavender” and “Interlude in the Sky.”

"D.C. band Sunwolf is responsible for one of the best songs released in D.C. last year: The scrappy earworm "Push It." So we were pumped when the trio stopped by our studio earlier this year and treated us to a live version of that tune.

"Not that Sunwolf is some kind of one-hit wonder. While they were here, the band ripped into another standout, "Let It Out," which may have to share the throne with "Push It." It’s a hard one to forget."
