Pr0files recently leaked an uncharacteristic piano ode entitled “Forgive.” But we should have known this was only a stripped version of the track as the original returns the coed duo to form with punching digi-beats, slicing synths, and oh-so-riveting vocals:
Pr0files will perform at Touch Vinyl on October 24th.
Emily Gold‘s sound is split between dream-pop haze and grunge rock fuzz as an unapologetic salute to the ’90s. Early next year she will follow-up her debut EP, Wrap You Up In Dreams, with a full-length, Recluse, which was co-written by producer David Burris who originally met Gold while classmates in high school. Here’s the album’s first leaked single “Cyanide Lollipop”:
“Cyanide lollipop, I’ll make your lips numb…”
And the album’s teaser video:
Alan Oakes (of Let Em Riot) returns with a new project, MODERNS, by collaborating with multi-instrumentalist Christopher Fudurich and vocalist Rosie Okumura. Based out of an Arts District studio, the trio stays true to Oakes’ retro pop form by blending striking synths, digi-beats, and stirring vocals. The result is arresting and most definitely danceable. Here’s the track “Kowalski” off their self-titled debut EP:
The fresh-face known as AMAN returns by leaking “Home.” Unlike his debut burner single, “Haunted,” this new track is an uptempo buildup driven by his signature soulful vox and spurts of edgy pop. By proving he can cover both ends of the spectrum, AMAN‘s eventual breakthrough is now inevitable.
With a voice of smooth zeal, Sarah Pigion is a songstress of piano-pop and smoky soul. Her debut EP, Ember, was recorded with producer Billy Mohler (Carina Round, The Drowning Men) and released last year. Inspired by her stripped live performances, Pigion recently recorded and filmed a series of songs dubbed the Living Room Sessions (due to being filmed/recorded in her Downtown apartment’s living room). The live EP will drop on October 28th. Here’s one of its tracks, “Ember”:
And its live video:
Feels, L’Aura Moire’, Thee Commons, and Whit Evans and the Birth recently performed at Alex’s Bar for Long Beach Psych Night.
And Minivan Photography was there to shoot the show.
