TRACK PREMIERE: DANG CLETS “SKIP”

L.A. quartet Dang Clēts (formerly Waldo) have just manifested their new single "Skip," a just-off-center AOR indie-pop song that seems less about the sunshine and more about the haze that burns off in the morning. It's got welcome personality and some subtle-but-knowing production tricks that make sure the weird moments are the winning moments. They'll be playing tonight at the Bootleg with Mosaics, Fime and Sports Coach—get tickets here!

L.A. trio SadGirl signed to Seattle's Suicide Squeeze earlier this summer—they're now labelmates with locals like L.A. WITCH, the Coathangers and Guantanamo Baywatch—and they're about to make their label debut with their "Breakfast For 2" EP and this extremely atmospheric video. "Breakfast" is an Ed Wood-meets-Twilight Zone tale of tragic romance and forbidden science—and the true tragedy that happens when breakfast goes unfinished.
