together Pangea
together Pangea
together PANGEA began with lead singer-songwriter William Keegan recording songs on a 4-track tape machine as a teenager. The band truly began to take shape when Danny Bengston joined on bass, Erik Jimenez on drums and later Cory Hanson on lead guitar. They began performing at CalArts and house parties in the Santa Clarita valley in 2008, soon venturing to house shows and DIY spaces throughout the West Coast. These initial grassroots tours were followed by shows at iconic LA venues such as The Echo, Echoplex, the Troubadour and The Roxy, as well as trips to Austin for SXSW. Their debut recording was 2010's cassette-only Jelly Jam, released by Seattle-based label Lost Sound Tapes. Their second album ;Living Dummy was co-released on LP in the summer of 2011 by Burger Records and The Smell's label Olfactory. Living Dummy was followed up by the "Killer Dreams EP" in early 2012. together PANGEA have played shows with Wavves, The Black Lips, FIDLAR, Ty Segall, Mikal Cronin, King Kahn and the Shrines, Nobunny, Redd Kross, Guitar Wolf, The Strange Boys, and many more. Now signed to Harvest Records, together PANGEA will be releasing their "Snakedog" 7-inch on August 20th in anticipation of their full-length album.
Dirt Dress
Dirt Dress
Garagey racket meets a Wedding Present whirl of skittering guitars. A quote from their own band bio sums up the band's style and sense of humor in a sentence: "Influences include: The Velvet Underground, The Fall, The Pixies, Bo Diddley, Talking Heads and a bunch of other crappy bands." Heh. Crappy, indeed.

Summer Twins
Summer Twins
Summer Twins are sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown. They write dreampop and rock 'n roll songs with a touch of California sun. Born and raised in Riverside, Ca, the two decided they wanted to start a band from a young age. Inspired by their dad's old rock 'n roll records, Chelsea picked up the guitar, Justine taught herself to play drums, and they played in an all-girl band throughout their teens. They formed Summer Twins in 2008, with a focus on singing pop harmonies atop garage rock inspired by the '50s and '60s. Now in their early twenties, Summer Twins play live with Marcio Rivera on guitar and an additional bassist.


"Each repeat listen to the California dream-pop duo's lazy, hazy, crazy debut adds another layer of shimmering, pink pleasure. Sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown quickly start to sound like a band you've had in your collection for years – and it's more than simple 90s nostalgia for a brand of pop ala The Cardigans that the Summer Twins wholly embrace." -Impose Magazine

"Just some damn sunny pop with a nice dusting of melancholy that begs to be on your headphones and walked around the city." -Raven Sings the Blues

"...a sound that is both nostalgic and timeless" - Get Bent
The Aquadolls
The Aquadolls
Four perma-teenage mermaids living in SoCal and making music.
Founded by Melissa Brooks, The Aquadolls started in January 2012. The current lineup is Melissa Brooks on vocals/guitar, joined by Ryan Frailich on vocals/guitar, Josh Crawford on bass, and Colin Moore on drums. The Aquadolls songs put forth “trip out” sorta vibes, as well as quite aggressive ones. A lot of our songs are about love, opening your mind, hating being a teenager, and even wanting to go Britney on someone and smash their windshield with a baseball bat. Just be a mermaid, and join the cult that is THE AQUADOLLS.
