“Say Goodnight” by Haathi (Premiere)

When Brijesh Pandya isn’t drumming for superb local acts (Air Life, Alina Bea, Cassandra Violet, Steady Holiday), he’s making music as Haathi (Hindi for “elephant”). His debut single, “Say Goodnight,” was recorded in his Valley Village apartment and is a bop of indie rock with a buoyant tempo and a catchy chorus channeling a worldbeat vibe that would make Gotye jealous.

“The mistake was all mine to keep lying to myself this time.”

Haathi will perform on October 16th at The Resident.

“Smoke + Mirrors” Music Video by Elline

EllineElline is a R&B popster based in Valley Village who recently released her debut EP Stained Glass. Its first single, “Smoke + Mirrors,” was produced by her former college classmates SUR and Felipe Mejia Saldarriaga and is a smooth glide of shimmery synths, mid-tempo digi-beats, and a very sharp vox.

“But your love is not enough.”

Here’s its hypnotic music video directed by Yves Huy Truong.
