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
Froth
Froth
The band was unintentionally founded by El Segundo natives Joo-Joo Ashworth (guitar, vocals) and Jeff Fribourg (omnichord), who each graduated from El Segundo High School in 2012 and 2008, respectively.

"Frothing at the gash" is a crude Australian idiom which combines the phrase "frothing at the mouth" with a slang term for vagina: gash, typically referring to a woman who is eager to have sex.

Let the giggles abound, but Froth's music is just as good and nasty as its vulgar roots. They're blending a delicious combination of '60s garage, psych, surf, low-fi, and shoegaze drenched in Ashworth's exaggerated lyrical compositions bathed in washed out, heady vocals. Maybe some Country Joe & the Fish, Creation, and general '60s nuggets from the old school, mixed with some Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Angels, and Entrance Band from the newer school. It's a neo-psychedelic sound quite popular in parts of Europe currently, as well as throughout Los Angeles – which is where Froth has taken it. They're presently based in Echo Park.
Corners
Corners
"Corners dismantled a classic L.A. punk sound—something between the Plugz and the Gun Club, and/or a slightly more alternate-world Repo Man soundtrack—and reassemble it for their own personal purposes." - L.A. RECORD
Drinking Flowers
Drinking Flowers
"bugger me this is freakish - reverb soaked psyched out strut grooved shoe gazed blues trippiness a go go - quite frankly pisses cool and comes kissed with the kind of fuzz flecked psychotropic swagger that only disciples of the dark arts of the gun club and lords of the new church could muster not to say shimmering in the shadow playing psychosis of Mr Airplane Man and reared on the primitive rumble of Link Wray (especially the wasted and fried shadow traced shimmer toned shakedown of ‘this possessed’) and no doubt subscribers to the 90‘s back catalogue of the likes of estrus and sympathy."

Heroes & Heroines
Heroes & Heroines
Echoes of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, The Association and a youth spent listening to oldies in the backseat bounce off of animated garage rock in L.A.’s Heroes & Heroines. Cousins Tony Infante (organ, lead vocals) and Nick Gil (guitar) together with friends Alex Faciane (bass) and Gabe Diaz (drums) grew up in the South Bay, home to musical legends from The Beach Boys to Black Flag. Appropria
tely, a combination of harmonic pop and rock propulsion drives Heroes & Heroines’ infectious songs.

The sunny L.A. sound of the Heroes & Heroines comes to fruition with the band’s “Two Weeks” seven-inch single, recorded at The Distillery (The Black Lips, The Strange Boys) in Costa Mesa on analog tape and mastered straight to vinyl. On “Two Weeks” the band surfs a Farfisa organ through a cathedralesque vocal breakdown, radiating timeless rock ‘n’ roll vibes over a jump-out-of-your-seat beat. Its B-side, “Busy Bee,” is no less revelatory, building slowly from a doo-wop vocal and two-chord stomp to a garage-rock explosion of noise and color. Heroes & Heroines capture the feeling of cruising down PCH, listening to your favorite tunes without a care in the world about work, your ex or anything but good times.

“Heroes & Heroines navigate nostalgia while remaining creatively current. Channeling recent heroes Thee Makeout Party but reaching back as far as those pre-British Invasion American party poppers the Rivieras, Heroes & Heroines is here to stay—so they can make all your Spring Break dreams come true!” — LA Record

“Delicate vocals are paired with the clean and polished complexion of this easily accessible pop music, making for a delectable and innocent sound that is overwhelmingly charming. … It’s not a surprise to be totally floored by this incomparable bliss, so go with the flow and see where it takes you.” — The Styrofoam Drone

“Saw their 45 at the record store last week. No girls in the band, so I don’t know where they’re getting the ‘Heroines’ part, but it’s a pretty good song. Sounds like an oldie. Think I’ll pick it up.” – Buzzbands.LA
