Seapony
Taking their cue from the indie pop bands of yore (particularly twee pop acts like the Softies, Talulah Gosh, and the Field Mice), Seapony sound every bit as dreamy, soft, and sweet as their name implies. Seapony formed in 2010, when Danny Rowland and Jen Weidl moved to Seattle. They teamed up with bassist Ian Brewer, Rowland's childhood friend and former bandmate, and the band was born. The newly minted trio wasted no time in recording an album's worth of tunes. Shortly after posting a handful of finished tracks online, the band was picked up by then-fledgling label Double Denim Records; Seapony's debut 7" single, Dreaming, was released on that label soon after. The band's profile enjoyed a healthy boost thanks to the single; by the time 2011 rolled around, Dreaming was featured on Pitchfork and made its way into the rotation on college radio stations. Seapony played their very first live gig soon after. The band's debut full-length album, Go with Me, was released on Hardly Art in 2011.
Sweater Girls
Sweater Girls
SWEATER GIRLS are the new Heavenly. And one of the best indiepop bands in Los Angeles. (Oh. And Talulah Gosh was a friend of theirs. All three bands, probably.)
Detective
Detective
DETECTIVE is the new-ish, dream-jangle project of James Greer from Guided By Voices and Guylaine Vivarat of Useless Keys and Tennis System, inspired by the Jean-Luc Godard film of the same name. The band alternates the bubbling melodies of Stereolab, the sparse VU dreamscapes of Galaxie 500 and the hum-along choruses of "Alien Lanes" era GBV! Don't miss this, their PTP debut!
