Cones
Jonathan and Michael Rosen are brothers, and also Cones. Growing up in San Francisco, they were as close as could be – spending their free time eating cereal.

Jonathan was infatuated with pop music from day one. He cried when he realized Elvis was dead. He would build cardboard drum sets in his room and play along to the Bee Gees. In contrast, Michael had a technical and academic approach to music. Trained in piano and composition, he studied in the classical tradition, writing his first opera at the age of 16.

The two brothers are based in Los Angeles. Jonathan is an acclaimed hand-drawn animator. He has created music videos for such artists as Toro y Moi, Eleanor Friedberger, and Delicate Steve. His rock and roll dream was born on the set of HBO’s Vinyl, when he played the role of Johnny Thunders. Michael is a commercial/film composer and experimental sound artist. His fiercely technical brain works in collaboration with his heightened ear to create beautiful and strange sonic environments.

Prior to starting Cones, the brothers played in the backing band for Eleanor Friedberger (of the Fiery Furnaces), helping to write and tour on her latest record New View. While on tour, Jonathan and Michael conceptualized a new project. One that would fuse Jonathan’s pop sensibilities with Michael’s lush soundscapes and key-heavy orchestration. One that would rely on an entire lifetime of brotherhood – sounds that Jonathan could draw and images that Michael could hear.

In the spring of 2017, Cones released a music video (animated by Jonathan) for their debut single ‘Echoes On’ via The Fader. Two more singles titled ‘Back in the Brain’ and ‘Whatever You’re Into’ will be released in August 2017 via Canvasclub, Canvasback Music’s monthly singles series.
Shepherds
Shepherds
"Shepherds is a minimalist pop group from Atlanta, GA. Powered by the unique three drum setup of Adrian Benedykt Switon, the hypnotic, driving bass of Peter Cauthorn, and the fluid leads of Grahm Naylor, the band plays a style of music rife with noise and melody molded by the lacerating guitar and vocals of Jonathan Merenivitch. Their most recent 7 inch, “Moment” b/w “Violet Violence”, released by Chunklet/Third Uncle Records, is about the existential dread of being black in America, and confronting the idea that in any moment your life or the lives of your loved ones could be taken away because of the color of their skin."
