"Unusual Love" by The Echo And The Sound

The Echo and The Sound PRESS SHOTThe Echo And The Sound are a blues-punk duo that sound like a desert cantina house band forced to play in order to pay off their tequila tab. But actually, the two guys (guitarist/vocalist Brian Rich and drummer Douglas Jewell) bombard their music with unapologetic grit at local dive venues around Echo Park. Their self-titled debut EP was released earlier this year and recorded on analog by Mark Rains at Station House Studio. Here’s “Unusual Love”:

"Get Me Golden" Music Video by Terraplane Sun

1348874377TerraplaneSunFriendsEPShootSelectsVersions0371_lowTerraplane Sun produced a music video for their first single “Get Me Golden” off their latest Friends EP. Directed by their fellow Venice Beach resident Hso Hkam, the video revolves around an encounter with a gang of Mexican puppets that are the only patrons for one of the band’s residency shows at The Satellite last July. At first the marionettes are malevolent, but soon the music’s psych-blues grooves win them over:

"Get Me Golden" by Terraplane Sun

Venice Beach‘s soulful sons called Terraplane Sun are back with more blues-based rock that soaks up the sun with radiant grooves. Their new EP, Friends, will be self-released on October 16th and was produced by Dave Trumfio (Wilco, My Morning Jacket). The track “Get Me Golden” carries a lively jive filled with group vocals and instinctive handclaps on top of their reliable psych jams –just the sort of single that is destined to breakout the Westside‘s great big hope to the next level:

Tonight, Terraplane Sun will perform with The Mowgli’s, Tijuana Tears, and The Deltaz as presented by Indie On The Westside at The Malibu Inn.

"Haunted Heart" music video by Little Hurricane

San Diego’s Little Hurricane is making a renown presence in SoCal. The coed duo met when drummer Celeste “C.C.” Spina exchanged her chef knives for drumsticks and posted a Craigslist ad that guitarist/vocalist Anthony “Tone” Catalano answered. They soon became North Park‘s beloved mascot and released their debut album Homewrecker (Unknown Breakthrough) –a blues rock homage of gritty riffs, bruised beats, and lyrics that stain your soul.

Here is their music video for “Haunted Heart” which was directed by DJay Brawner (Foo Fighters, Scars On 45) and shot in the Imperial Valley. Staying true to their sound, the video features lots of grime, blood, and intrigue…

Little Hurricane will tour with the Heartless Bastards beginning July 31st.
