THE RED SPAROWES (JUST ADDED!)
Really nuanced, detail-oriented instrumental post-rock from one of the best bands in Los Angeles. Prepare for transport.
Night Horse is killer 70s rock, and not that mellow AOR borderline rock shit either. AC/DC + Rose Tattoo. Singer Sam Velde will climb anything and then plummet fearlessly on to anything else.
Blue Cheer meets Sir Lord Baltimore to become … LORD CHEER. Or also Radio Moscow. Acid guitar—hallucinogenic AND corrosive!—and riffs you can live on for days.
The video looks like it’s going to be for like Royksopp or something but it’s not so don’t bail after five seconds, dear ADHD-addled readers, because it’s awesome. They call it Stone Gaze and we hear and obey.
THE FUCKING WRATH
“No one here is fucking here to fight”, it says in the beginning of the video. And no, they are not fucking here to fucking fight, they are fucking here to make ribcage-rattling reverb-drenched music that will fucking crush you. None will be left standing!
IDES OF GEMINI
Dream doom? Black metal? Don’t know. We just call it “awesome.” The new L.A. band that will absorb you like the Smog monster.
L.A. RECORD AND TEEPEE PRESENT THE NEW WEIRD AMERICA FEST ON SAT., JUL 2 AT THE NOMAD GALLERY, 1993 BLAKE AVE., FROGTOWN. 2 PM / $10/ 18+. GET TICKETS HERE!
