“Mirror Talk” by Teenage Wrist

A49E8628-2C2C-4EAD-BAF5-E3C684271DF3Teenage Wrist is a Silver Lake-based side-project of Kamtin Mohager (The Chain Gang Of 1974), Marshall Gallagher (of Swing Hero), and Anthony Salazar. Their recently released debut EP, Dazed, is a steady blast of throwback alt-rock which strikes a diligent balance between melodic sincerity and shoegaze fuzz as if recorded at Fort Apache Studios in the mid-’90s. Here’s the beautifully raucous “Mirror Talk”:

“Have you ever felt the gloom?”

Teenage Wrist will perform on June 29th at The Echo.

“ALIVE” Lyric Video by Adult Video (Premiere)

IMG_0715When songwriter Mindy Jones isn’t performing solo or singing for Moby, she’s collaborating with Luke Top (of Fool’s Gold) as Adult Video. The side project began on a couch in an Echo Park living room, along with a cat, and due to a dare. The result is “ALIVE” –a beautifully brooding ode to Americana-inspired indie rock lacquered by Jones’ soulful voice as if the wind wailing through a ghost town at dusk. Here’s its aptly spooky, animated lyric video created by morgans brother:

“Cyanide Lollipop” Music Video by Emily Gold (Premiere)

EmdreamyEmily Gold returns by releasing a music video for her dream-pop/grunge-fuzz single “Cyanide Lollipop” off her forthcoming debut LP Recluse. Shot and edited by her drummer, Sean Draper, the apt video features a hedonistic, polygamous, bohemian “Lollipop Cult” which Gold and her band successfully infiltrate and poison.

The Emily Gold Band will perform on June 22nd at Hams & Egg Tavern.

“All Mine (Real Bitches)” Lyric Video by Sophie and The Bom Boms

image1Sophie and The Bom Boms returns by leaking another single, “All Mine (Real Bitches),” off their forthcoming sophomore EP. The edgy track spits out snappy, superfly power pop courtesy of oh-so-sharp production by David Elevator –the original Bom (or OB). And you can’t ignore the commentative sing-talk lyrics responding to the ever-rising popularity of plastic surgery. Or as Sophie explains, “this is an anthem for all those who’ve kept it real.”

And here’s its potent lyric video:

“She Talks Too Much” by Elohim

1476184_1616402551907856_2185015207714699694_nPlaying the sub rosa card, Elohim is a fresh popster stirring up a frenzy with her debut single “She Talks Too Much.” Built on punchy digi-beats, solid synths, and edgy effects, the song is a bona fide indie pop hit highlighted by a lite vox with an innocent pitch.

“I’m on a good one now.”

“Bees” Music Video by Smoke Season

smoke_season_press3Smoke Season continues to awe by releasing a stellar music video for their latest leaked single “Bees.” The coed duo went DIY by constructing their own “honeycomb LED light installation” to give the shoot a hypnotic, psychedelic effect in between screen projections of varied natural scenery. The result is a spellbinding experience which aptly suits the song’s brooding pulse and soaring chorus.
