VIDEO PREMIERE: PACHYMAN “SENSI”

January 20th, 2020

Pachy Garcia is the singer and drummer for L.A. synthpunk annihilators Prettiest Eyes, so he's already intensely adept at doing two difficult things at once. But he took that capability for disciplinary ambidexterity to another level of intensity when he revealed himself as Pachyman, a reverent disciple of classic dub and reggae whose debut In Dub was a sleeper winner in 2019. He returns now with At 333 House, a salute to his own personal Studio One due out Feb. 7 on Mock, and this video valentine to summer days spent soaking in sun and sound.

VIDEO PREMIERE: THE FLYTRAPS “FEMALE OF THE SPECIES”

January 15th, 2020

After way too long, the mighty Flytraps have their real-deal debut album Wild Card slated for a spring release, and they're kicking a hole in the first weeks of 2020 with this blown-out black-and-white video that looks like a scene from the film noir John Waters never made. "Female Of The Species" smashes together the atmosphere of the Cramps, the attitude of the Pandoras attitude and something like the still-potent vocal power of Darby Crash—check out bassist/vocalist Kristin Cooper, the female manimal—and of course it all ends with a scream that must've pushed the VU into the red. Wild Card will be out on Burger and Outro in a couple months—prepare or beware!

VIDEO PREMIERE: DEATH VALLEY GIRLS “WEAR BLACK”

October 30th, 2019

Halloween must be the season when L.A.'s Death Valley Girls really come alive. Like the heroic Roky Erickson, they too have a bone-deep reverence for zombies, ghosts, aliens and the other fellow creepy creatures that brought to life blown-out black-and-white monster movies. And that's the other half of the cast of their new video for their Pandoras-meets-Scientists garage rock seether "Wear Black."
