CEG Presents in association with CMJ Music Marathon



Pompeya is a Moscow band that draws from ’70s disco, ’80s New Wave, and ’90s indie rock to create unabashed pop music. Their debut LP Tropical and follow up EP Foursome earned the band significant popularity in their home country of Russia, “energetically introducing Moscow’s youth to electronic indie culture” remarks Los Angeles radio station KCRW. The two releases were reissued in November 2013 by US label No Shame as one “supreme debut into the celestial world that is Pompeya,” according to MTV Hive. The US reissue was coupled a remix LP featuring Fred Falke, Jimmy Edgar, Psychemagik, and Felix da Housecat, to name a few.

Following an extensive US tour and SXSW debut , the group announced their new EP Night, released in June of 2014. Co-Produced by Brian Mctear, of Local Natives and War on Drugs fame, Spin Magazine remarked the release “add[s] a mellow freshness to Pompeya’s brand of upbeat, frisky disco.” The success of this creative marriage led to the two working together on a much-anticipated follow up LP, which will be released by No Shame in 2015.

70′s, 80′s and the music of this period are simply magnificent. We choose it and promote it




Rathborne (12AM)


" 'Soft' segues back and forth through the American underground, channeling the garage-rock sludge of Ty Segall and resurrecting the melodic charms of R.E.M." -SPIN Magazine

“exploding at the seams with creative energy” - Bullett

"I love this young dude… After hearing' his album, I proposed to him and asked him to play a show with us in Philly." --Devendra Banhart

"Rathborne writes the way a great underground pop writer like Brendan Benson does, while applying touches of both ferocious garage rock sensibilities and something akin to the grandness of great, early Oasis records"--Daytrotter

“laid-back, confident new wave-meets-classic rock cut containing just the right amount of Nick Lowe and early R.E.M.” - Noisey
