British dubstep producer ZOMBY came to prominence for his debut full length 'Where Were U in 92', which saw him invited by ANIMAL COLLECTIVE to play at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival they curated in 2011, and sign to benchmark UK label 4AD (THE NATIONAL, DEERHUNTER, BLONDE REDHEAD). 'Dedication' is a dark and absorbing album that runs between sparse electronics, techno hooks, minimal piano riffs, oh and a cheeky sample from a pop song by the winner of the Russian reality show Star Factory.

The Unnatural Helpers, signed to Sub Pop's sister label Hardly Art, have been banging around Seattle for a few years now as the perennial hobbyhorse of singer / drummer / songwriter / sole consistent member Dean Whitmore, who has also spent time with such Seattle outfits as the Intelligence, Welcome and Dipers. Guitar and sporadic vocal duties are held down by Brian Standeford and Leo Gebhardt (who have previously played together in the Catheters, Tall Birds and most recently Idle Times), with some additional playing by Kinski's Chris Martin.
