Sweaters, Dead Trees, El Sportivo, and Killmanjaro at Spaceland

at spaceland

Written by singer/ keyboardist Jordan Benik and published by Echo Park Books, the manifesto reads like an instruction manual for epiphanies, or fever dreams. And it complements the exhalations of Sweaters’ music, where blasts of piano banging, fuzzy guitar, and honest lyrics broadcast the essential energy to live life as hard as you can. – LA WEEKLY

Everything about the two songs on Sweaters’ new 7-inch single is familiar — the chord progression that launches “Sky Mall, the piano-powered rock ’n’ soul of “Investigations.” But it’s the uninhibited manner in which the L.A. four-piece — Jordan Benik, Max Sokolinski, Jordan Harkins and Joel Isaac Black — inhabits its classic rock influences that makes both irresistible. This slab of ’70s-leaning fun, recorded with Foreign Born’s Ariel Rechtshaid, recently came out on Slow Death Records, and the quartet has another 7-inch, “Can’t Stop Winning,” in the works for Black Iris. – Buzz Bands

Princeton, Therapies Son, Hands, and Sea of Cortez at the Echo

at the echo

PRINCETON
Growing up on Princeton Street in Santa Monica, twin brothers Jesse & Matt Kivel and childhood friend Ben Usen started playing together as a group in the late 90’s, but officially formed Princeton during a year long stay in London in 2005. With the addition of drummer David Kitz, the band first gained attention in 2008 with the conceptual four-song Bloomsbury EP, a breezy dance-pop confection about the imaginative group of British intellectuals. The band now lives in the Eagle Rock district of LA where their new album (Cocoon of Love) was recorded.

THERAPIES SON
Therapies Son started in October 2010 all music is written, played and recorded by Alex Jacob

HANDS
“Synths and samples do battle with insistent beats and tricky polyrhythms, with Halliday’s tenor commingling with Sweeney’s choral backup vocals and a thin veneer of reverb. Hands released their “Cities” EP in 2008, but their recent live shows reveal the quartet to be pursuing a more experimental (and less acoustic) pop bent.”- Buzzbands.la

Puro Instinct – Stilyagi (Featuring Ariel Pink)

Puro Instinct - Stilyagi

PURO INSTINCT (LOS ANGELES, CA)

Puro Instinct have been hovering precariously under the surface with all the warning signs of tipping into the public stream of conscious. Alas – there hasn’t been anything yet that’s tipped them over the edge.

It always pains me to see a band that hasn’t quite reached their full potential when you know they have the chops and charisma to back it up. Makes you ask “What’s holding them back?” Hopefully “Stilyagi” – the latest offering from Puro Instinct a circling hazy synth pop ballad  featuring the vocal stylings of former tour mate Ariel Pink will be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

The track is off the project’s upcoming 7 Inch which will be out soon on Mexican Summer and offers a taste of the band’s upcoming full length “Headbangers In Ecstasy” which will be out sometime in 2011 on the same label. Really excited to hear how the full length turned out!

Stephen Farris – Prism

STEPHEN FARRIS (HOUSTON, TX)

Who are you Stephen Farris and how have you assembled one of my favorite tracks of the year? The term “Beat Master” comes to mind. Obviously you’re hiding out in your bedroom somewhere making some of the dopest tracks I’ve heard in a long time.

Download “Prism” below if you know what’s good for you and stream his new EP on his bandcamp page.

The Deadly Syndrome, Polls, Pity Party, Signals, and Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits at the Echoplex

at the echoplex

THE DEADLY SYNDROME
POLLS

We are so stoked to introduce you to Polls from Los Angeles, CA. Haven’t heard of them yet? Well, if your into noise laden dream pop that lulls you into dream land like a bulldozer through a china shop than LISTEN UP!

THE PITY PARTY

The Pity Party are arguably one of the most innovative and intriguing bands in Los Angeles today. Heisenflei’s ability to multi-task on drum/keys/and vocals simultaneously makes even the pros jealous. Pair that with M’s hypnotic guitars and deep space melodies and you have a recipe for world domination.

SIGNALS

Hailing from LA, Signals are a brand new band comprised of three beautiful boys: Jon Gray, Bill Gray, and Jacob Cooper. The three have played together since 2005, but are better known for being formerly active members of much-loved The Mae Shi.

RABBITS RABBITS RABBITS

There must be some reason Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits say it three times , it seems to have nothing to do with their emotional and moody noisy pop, fuzzy and loud guitars alternating with melancholic riffs, melodies building a desolated and at the same time soothing atmosphere.

The 4th Annual Christmas Sweater Fest benefit concert returns this year to the Echoplex on Saturday, December 11. The annual event curated by LA indie favorites The Deadly Syndrome will feature an array of bands from the ever intriguing Los Angeles music scene including Polls, The Pity Party, Signals, and Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits. Tickets are on-sale now online and at Origami Vinyl in Echo Park. Purchasing tickets in advance is recommended as the event will sell out. 100% of the net proceeds of this years event will go to help fund Teen Impact.

Teen Impact is a program at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles for teens and young adults that have or once had cancer or a blood disease. We’re open to teens and young adults from any part of the country and from any hospital or treatment center. Teen Impact gives teens and young adults with cancer or a blood disease a chance to make new friends, share life experiences and participate in fun activities. The teens and young adults who participate in Teen Impact go to school, have jobs, prepare for the future, and most importantly enjoy life. In addition, Teen Impact has some services for parents and siblings, because we know that they need support and friendship too. Another great thing about Teen Impact is that it doesn’t cost you anything to participate. Call us at (323) 361-4660 to find out how to join Teen Impact.
