The Alternating Currents
indie noise rock
-from Santa Monica, CA
-Coastal Clouds is the music project of Roberto Rodriguez, who works and lives in Santa Monica, California. R. Rodriguez moved to California after college and started to develop his new sound in the West Coast. Residing in LA, R. Rodriguez took studio internships, worked commercial/TV production gigs and played shows around town (Silver Lake, Echo Park, DTLA, Venice, Hollywood, Pasadena) until he was able to get his debut solo effort produced by Billy Mohler (http://www.billymohler.com) a few years later. Billy Mohler helped Coastal Clouds find a new sound and added his flare through bass and other instrumentation that are found all throughout the new album.
Billy Mohler and Aaron Smart decided to start their own record label, MAKE Records, in 2017 and signed Coastal Clouds as the first project on their label. Since then, Coastal Clouds has released a 4 song EP with MAKE Records and the new, full length record is due out early this year... It features mostly clean instruments and mellow vocals that may reverberate some Neil Young / John Lennon vibes on the vintage side but also War on Drugs / Real Estate on the more "modern" side...Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, First Aid Kit ) mixed and Greg Calbi (Sterling Sound) mastered the full length album which is due out early 2019!

-from Oakland, CA
-The Alternating Currents are a Post-Punk, Psych, Art-Rock group from Oakland, California. The band consists of outsider-folk musician Ruben Diaz as key songwriter and vocalist, Augustus DeVandry on Lead Guitar, Eric Park on Bass, and Joe Miller on Drums.
Beginning in 2016, as a cumulous group between Diaz and Miller, The Alternating Currents have cemented their sound with DeVandry and Park to become a band cutting a unique style from their contemporaries with an entrancingly visceral cannon of songs. Some have said that the band is “post everything,” supplying a thread between popular and experimental music with their expansive songwriting. Diaz applies a caustic but controlled lyrical performance and rhythm guitar with a bedrock of Park and Miller’s heavy cream of addictively bubbling rhythm section, torn open by DeVandry’s ripping guitar lines.
The Alternating Currents are supporting their first 7” single ‘ Invasive Daisies / Invasive Daisies ‘ available through RERERERE Records, as well as their first music video for ‘Invasive Daisies,’ Directed and Edited by Matt Robeson (White Light Prism). The band’s first full length album, entitled ‘NUN’, is due in Fall 2019.
-from San Francisco, CA
-Hailing from San Francisco, Big Still plays Americana-hued rock and roll. Big Still's second album "Sleeper" was released in summer 2019 following a five-year silence. Inspired by and dedicated to songwriter Spencer Potter's first child, the record is a 12-song reflection on childhood, change, and how time rolls on in a quiet circle while we ride along with our loved ones, sometimes falling asleep along the way.
Recorded DIY in Big Still's San Francisco practice space, "Sleeper" combines dreamy layered soundscapes with carefully crafted rock drivers and thoughtful Americana ballads.
