Jack Garratt and Javier Dunn recently performed at Hotel Cafe.
And photog Joe Cortez was there to shoot the show:
Smoke Season continues their buzz by leaking the single “Bees.” In the same vein as their latest EP, Hot Coals Cold Souls, the track continues their signature fusion of soul-infused indie rock with electro pop production soaked in a western ambience:
“You get the honey without the sting.”
Smoke Season will perform on March 29th at Bootleg HiFi.
Quigley is a new popster who proudly produces her own tracks out of her NoHo bedroom. Her debut EP, Initium, will drop on May 8th but she already leaked the single “Post Post Apocalypse” built on experimental effects, rapid mini-beats, dreamy synths, and a sharp, shimmery vox:
“Everybody dance like it’s the post post-apocalypse.”
Genevieve created a music video for her pop punching single, “Colors,” off her debut EP, Show Your Colors (Wind-up Records). Shot around Slab City, the B&W video follows the singer as she frees various characters from states of stasis and adds them to her jocose entourage as a salute to The Wizard of Oz. And of course, the video aptly transitions as a reference to the song/EP’s title:
No longer just the solo project of Anthony Ferraro, Astronauts, etc. has evolved into a quintet. Their first collaborative single, “I Know,” was recorded live to tape at Tiny Telephone and justly hearkens a vintage soul vibe highlighted by Ferraro’s reliably smooth falsetto:
“I know you’re right.”
Los Feliz denizen Dingwall recently released her debut single “Hollow.” Produced by Matias Mora and mastered by Riley Knapp (of RKCB), the track opens with sparse digi-beats and a filtered vox (à la Imogen Heap) spewing raw emotion before eventually erupting into an epic soar over cinematic pop production:
“And maybe I’ll always just be a little bit empty.”
Dingwall will perform on April 1st at Republic of Pie.
FEiN decided to leak another single, “Creatures,” off their second EP, FEiN Times (Issue #2), dropping March 30th. Just as dynamic as their previous songs, the track opens with a sexy falsetto and edgy funk riff before sporadically soaring into a chorus of epic pop:
“Keep on talking, no one cares.”
The Big Gone returns by leaking another track, “Until Tomorrow,” off their forthcoming EP, And How She Gave Me Life, dropping March 26th via Wiener Records. With concurrent coed vocals and a chillax pace, the track opens as a lulling daydream but gradually builds up its indie rock tones:
The Big Gone‘s EP release show is on March 26th at Complex.
