Feeding People
Feeding People
"At one level, this is garage rock … But the music on Peace, Victory and the Devil breaks out of those constraints, not as if it's struggling but as if it's shrugging off any concern for rules, as if it's easy to pioneer a new sound.

Whether [Jones] is channeling spirits, or whether Feeding People is simply a band of spirited musicians all pulling together to make her glossolalia of gloom the official soundtrack for these apocalyptic times, Peace Victoy and the Devil will make you want to stockpile this album and hole up in your bunker to await the band's next revelation."

— Dan Collins, LA Record
Wild Pack of Canaries
Wild Pack of Canaries
Wild Pack of Canaries is from Long Beach, CA. They formed in 2008, playing with a variety of different members until forming the current lineup (which still changes from time to time). The band draws influences from psych, prog, punk, experimental rock and hints of tropicalia.

2010 saw the release of the Canaries' first full length, 'The Coroner Can Wait'. They've toured the west coast in support of this album followed by tours in 2011 supporting Free Moral Agents and Avi Buffalo. In 2012 they released the 7" single 'Rain Brain/In Case of Hornets' which was followed by a trip to SXSW with more trips supporting the record throughout the year. Their sophomore full length, 'In The Parian Flesh', was self-released in February 2013. Followed by a run of small trips the band went right back into the studio to record their 3rd full length 'Agua Amarga' which was released August 2013 on Lolipop Records.

The band is currently recording their fourth full length record and planning tours for fall of 2014.
Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel
Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel
Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel is a whimsical color-swirling quartet of sound. Organ screaming, thunderous fuzz bass, and ecstatic rhythm can all be pulled from their loud-driving live performance. Tomas Dolas, Wyatt Blair, Daniel Quintanilla, and Julian Ducantenzeiler who all now reside in Echo Park (Los Angeles, California) make up the key-heavy, guitar-less group who just released their first full length "Nico… & Her Psychedelic Subconcious" on BURGER RECORDS and LOLIPOP RECORDS.
The Blank Tapes
The Blank Tapes
"We discovered this lo-fi unsigned band - which somehow evokes Belle and Sebastian, Pavement, and The Black Keys - in a San Fran coffeehouse (just like the old days.) Quick, somebody sign them!" -ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

“The sunny sounds of L.A.’s Blank Tapes, who yoke a garage-pop sensibility to ferocious rock riffs.” -THE NEW YORKER

"The last time I saw him my most fundamental confidence in myself was shaken because half his set was songs so good I knew they had to be covers of bands I already loved, yet I did not know them and if I can't even remember songs by the bands I love then why am I even going out at night when there are a lot of boring forms I could be filling out instead? But these were all Adams originals and they pretty much sounded perfect, and I even went home and listened to everything Ray Davies ever recorded on his own just in case there was something I missed but there wasn't. He wears sloppy sweaters and his band showed up looking like they just rolled out of men's central holding and it was the first best show of the year." -LA RECORD

“The Blank Tapes. Full of lo-fi rock refrains you can get down to, “I’m Back” is the perfect tune to soundtrack your beach party” -UNDER THE RADAR

“Matt Adams and his band premiere perfect summer pop. The Blank Tapes are turning their sun folk sound into some of this summer’s best indie guitar pop, capturing the sound of golden West Coast pop like fire and lightening trapped in a jar.” -IMPOSE MAGAZINE

"Adams writes winsome pop tunes that snuggle up to you on the sofa and put a rosy glow in your cheeks. He's a traditional pop-rock craftsman, but Adams also has pronounced folk proclivities, with many songs exuding a delicate, campfire aura. They go down easy, like the sun." -OC WEEKLY

"The Blank Tapes songs felt like melodic escapism layered with harmonies – songs about plants, Santa Cruz hideaways, small faraway towns. Together they have good energy and stage presence which traverse into the audience. Both the performances on and off the stage were impressive." -THE DELI MAGAZINE SF
