Hotel for Strangers play at the HiHat tonight

Hotel for Strangers are a quintet that operate at the fringes of pop while maintaining a synth-driven sound that's both intimate and spacious. With their soft falsetto choruses and metronomic drum sampling, which they execute with some idiosyncratic advantage, the outfit are poised to carry that momentum into their upcoming full-length coming out sometime in the Spring.

Listen to "Bat Face Girl" below, and catch them preview some new songs tonight at the Hi-Hat. 


Peach Kelli Pop releases new track "Halloween Mask"

Garage pop quintet Peach Kelli Pop are speaking against the troubling expectations of beauty in "Halloween Mask". The local project lead by Allie Hanlon takes a serious topic with a more amenable attitude toward tasteful songwriting, enveloping its rippling guitar noise and Breeders-like vocal harmonies with a spiked jangle melody. 

Peach Kelli Pop are gearing up for a national tour that will be going on all throughout the month of May. Listen to the track below, and look out for their forthcoming 7", due April 29 via Lauren Records.







Frankie and the Witch Fingers release new video for "Merry Go Round", 7" inch out now

Frankie and the Witch Fingers are a garage rock outfit with jingle-jangle arrangements whose slyly textured brand of psychedelia is disticntly trippy. The foursome have just released a promo cut for "Merry Go Round", a delightfully odd video in which a young, yéyé-looking femme commits a murder and decides to, well, dance to her heart's content. Its distinct, dreamlike ciematic touches are like imagining some lost connection between French New Wave and British horror cinema. 

"Merry Go Round" was just released as a 7-inch via Hypnotic Bridge.



The Cabin Fever play Silverlake Lounge on 4.1

The Cabin Fever are an alternative rock trio whose sepia-toned brand of carefully considered dream pop heralds a spacey, psychedelic sound. Their latest single, "The Curse of Us", is a propulsive rocker that lays bare a patient, shimmering guitar tone alongside a tighy rhythm section that ends up providing a cathartic, blissful release.

Make sure to catch The Cabin Fever play at Silverlake Lounge tomorrow, April 1, where they'll be performing songs off of their upcoming full-length Enjoy Yourself


KissMeKate releases new track "Clementine"

“Clementine”, the latest track by singler/songwriter KISSMEKATE, is a slow-burning synth pop ballad that showcases her good ear for subtle, yet dramatic effectiveness. What begins as an a capella lullaby ultimately builds into a delicate crescendo, firmly balancing that sweet spot between clarity and nuance.

"Clementine" is the lead track from her debut album, which is slated for release in April 2016. 




New Poll Coming Soon!
