Rough Francis is a rock-n-roll band from Burlington (VT) formed by three brothers and 2 of their close friends. The young Hackneys originally started the group as a tribute to their father and uncle's 1970's proto-punk band Death. After a few tribute shows, the group began to write and record their own music. The loud screams and maximum volume of Rough Francis still echoes Death—but they also manage to crystalize a unique sound of their own, channeling live energy from 60's garage rock, Motown and 80's Hardcore.

Drawing influences from bands such as Hum, Dinosaur Jr, and everything Mark Kozelek has ever done, Sleeping In have been bringing their guitar heavy shoegaze all around New England since the summer of 2014. Based in Burlington VT, Sleeping In's sound drones and pulsates with crushing guitar tones and laconic vocal melodies.

A master of all things disco and champion of indie remixes, Disco Phantom’s crates are deeper than deep.
