Pien Feith bridges the gap between an actual live band making pop music and the studio wizardry of exploratory electronics. Slow beats, playful percussion, dark romantic synthesizers, subtle guitar parts and an amazing voice.
Tough Love is the title of Pien Feith's second studio album which will be released on March 14, 2013 in the Benelux by V2 Records. The twelve songs on Tough Love, the successor to Dance On Time, form a kaleidoscopic landscape in which Pien Feith quirkily crosses connections between electronic music and indie pop. The lyrics are sometimes painfully honest, but more often comforting and encouraging. Tough Love is a reflection of Feith as daughter, sister and friend. Musically framed with subtle guitars, contrary rhythms and mystical synths. This makes the album not only more personal, but also more exciting than its predecessor.
Musically Pien Feith is again assisted by Melvin Wevers, Peter Akkerman, Pim Verlaek, Bow Evers and a new member in the live band Ben Schaipp. For the production Feith and Wevers traveled to Chicago to work with U.S. producer Chris Moore (Yeah Yeah Yeah's, Liars, TV on the Radio). The album title Tough Love can be best described by a quote from Cody Chesnutt: All songs are love songs, and if not romantic love, they are meant as 'tough love'.Something you write, because you want someone to do better, to be the best they can be.

(Bringing this classic back from the vault - originally played on Below Zero January 2009)
Lila's Medicine blends rich eklectronic modern production sound with fine masterful live musicianship. In it's formation and live performances, Lila's Medicine quickly built a buzz and began filling clubs because of it's lush tones and energy created by an all-star band of award winning musicians.
Created by vocalist / keyboardist Laura Scarborough with laptop-beat-savant Bill Sarver (OHN), this project formed from the idea of music as a medicine - to entice and feed the listener sound flavors and emotion.
The passionate vocal stylings of keyboardist / producer Laura Scarborough helps give Lila's Medicine it's distinctive flavor. Her voice atop the modern de-arranged samples, beats, and stacks of texture can remind one of artists like Bjork, Portishead, Goldfrapp, Moloko, Thievery Corporation, and others â€“ where an original female voice mixed in progressive, rich sound has seduced many listeners.
Bill Sarver / Bildeaux has been programming, creating remixes and composing electronic music for the past 16 years. He has recorded and toured with artists from the Swans, Rob Zombie, 16 volt, and Soak, and is bandleader / producer for his band OHN which has been charting college & internet radio stations with their 2nd record "In the End All Things Begin.â€
