I discovered Caldera via the Facebook page of another of PP&P's bands, Presomnia (pg. 5 of the US bands' pages) and am pleased to now add them to the site also.
"Caldera is an alternative/progressive/rock band hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana. Formed in May of 2017, bassist Daniel Minnerick and drummer Ryan Cox invited guitarist Jesse Pryner to join them in starting from scratch. 18 months later, vocalist Trisha Krall appeared out of thin air with her dynamic voice and thought provoking lyrics that perfectly complemented the music. As a project aiming to create music overflowing with fervid conviction and unapologetic aesthetic, every Caldera song ardently chases the group’s collective dream and design.
An alchemy of progressive rhythms melt with harmony and dissonance while evocative lyrical content pushes into the unconscious seeking truth and being. Caldera explores the prosody of their music through tone, color, and negative space inviting listeners to surrender to selfish indulgence, emotional release, and genuine experience."
Follow the band on their various social media pages to keep up to date with news of new music, gigs, etc.
Their music is available to purchase/download/stream from the usual outlets.
Below is Caldera's excellent debut track 'Save My Answer'.

Hailing from Long Island, New York, Cosmic Rejects are a quirky alternative rock band who have been likened to Pixies.
They released their debut album in December 2017 and are now working on their second album.
Their self titled debut offering contains 13 tracks and has generated praise from music fans, including on Amazon where you’ll find comments such as:
“This album should be listened to with headphones and loud … At times, it reminds me of Velvet Underground; other times Bowie and Nirvana's "Bleach" album, in its musical sensibilities.”
Fun music with a kicky retro feel. Great songs to dance around to and others with lyrics that make you think. Well-rounded album I'm happy to have in my playlist.
I’m always in search of new up and coming music to listen to instead of the same old stuff on the radio. I really like this album, its real music, a pleasure to listen to.
I can’t believe how much this band reminds me of my favorite...Pixies! I listened to the album twice in a row. Love it!
The album is available on Amazon (link below) and the two tracks showcased here are ‘Serenade’ and 'In The Red'.
