Clara Nova

July 5, 2014

Sometimes, the greatest ideas spring from the subconscious, fully formed. Such is the case with CLARA-NOVA, a name and concept that struck its creator, Sydney Wayser, in a dream. Musical exploration had already pushed the Los Angeles native onto a pantheon of Franco-American influences, from Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Charlotte Gainsbourg to John Lennon and Jeff Buckley. Now, her classic songs now swim to new depths in a mix of pastoral pleasures and urban grit—a sonic landscape of organic and electronic sounds.

The term DECORATOR has officially been redefined, though Merriam Webster may not accept the new entry. DECORATOR – an infectious alt-rock band that sounds like the metaphorical equivalent of a triple layer cake made from equal parts Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, and GORILLAZ. In what started as a middle school cover band (think The Beatles and The Doors) for brothers Alix, Miles and Reece Melendrez, the growing urge for the guys to do their own thing became impossible to ignore.

But, Grit Harbour has a new sound.

It’s fun, yet it has dark elements.”

The Rebel Light

September 13, 2014

With three songs to their name and only a couple of performances behind them, The Rebel Light is a LA-based sibling trio in its infancy, drifting from one influence to the next with soulful energy, and an innocence that stretches right to the edge of kitschy.

Begun as a duo at UCLA in 2012 (Andrew Giurgius on vocals/guitar and Nicholai Hansen on vocals/double-bass), they evolved from humble beginnings into a full-blown septet now sweetly buzzing the local indie circuit. With Nick Valentini (keyboards), they won UCLA’ Spring Sing’s Bruin Audience Choice and Best Band awards.

Wayfarer

August 23, 2014

Like many, Nik Piscitello started screaming in his parents’ garage, lost in the ennui and youthful hopefulness so often found in the Southern California suburbs. In his early 20s, he performed in a group called Spark Of Life.

 After two more attempts he created a new band Wayfarer, but it wasn’t really a band at all. A portrait of a man very much trying to come to grips with adulthood, armed with little more than his heart and his songs.

Influences: Jeff Tweedy, Mark Kozelek, Jeremy Enigk, Elliott Smith

Steve, a gifted guitar and piano player with a keen ear for catchy melodies and unique chord progressions, had been looking for a writing partner to contribute lyrics to his upbeat, playful compositions. They turned out to be a perfect match. Soon they were not only collaborating on songs together, but also happily married. They spent the next couple years working on new material and perfecting their sound.

Leftover Cuties

To call Leftover Cuties retro or throwback would be too easy, and frankly dismissive. Sure, the music fits beside Billie Holiday, but it’s also current in its sex appeal, its sophistication, its confidence. The Cuties’ music – plied with upright bass, accordion, the brushed drums, and yes, ukulele – is not slavishly old-timey, but honors its forebears in the right way. Melody. Sharp playing. Stylized, confident, character-laden singing.

Well known as the band behind the theme song for The Big C, Leftover Cuties have also made a name for themselves playing shows around their hometown of Los Angeles. With two EPs and an album under their belt, the band will be releasing their next full length album this year, and continuing to captivate audiences around the world.

London Cries

Unafraid to wear their hearts (and influences) on their sleeves, Neon Hymns play a personal brand of folk infused rock with a true sense of honesty and conviction often lacking among their modern rock peers. Neon Hymns is a band poised to carve out their own place in todays sonic landscape. With a live show to match and at times surpasses their recorded output, Neon Hymns plays with all the youthful potential that separates the good from the great.

Taylor Locke & The Roughs

Taylor Locke And The Roughs is a 4 piece rock group based out of Los Angeles. Their energetic, hard rocking brand of powerpop carries on a great tradition of melodic rock bands that spans virtually the entire history of popular music, from The Beatles to Big Star to The Stone Roses to Jellyfish. The band released two critically acclaimed albums in 2010, Grain & Grape and Marathon, and are currently putting the finishing touches on their third album.

The Peach Kings

The Peach Kings consist of Texas-born Paige McClain Wood and Silver Lake, Los Angeles native Steven Trezevant Dies.

Though formed in San Francisco, the band currently resides and works in Los Angeles alongside an awesome community of supportive individuals, artists, and brands.

The Peach Kings draw their sound and inspiration from the smoky smooth crackle of blues, folk, and soul vinyls as well as the hypodermic tones synthesized in various beat laboratories across the globe. Stripped down, The Peach Kings' power is derived from Paige's hauntingly sensual vocals combine with Steven's complementary rhythm and picking.
