-There's somewhat of a paradox inherent in Vundabar's songwriting - a conflicting sense of nostalgia contrasted with the realization that they couldn't sound more current. The music they make feels like something that should have been heard a long time ago, while simultaneously continuing to forge ahead sonically. Vundabar's high energy live show is the stand out quality of this band and is an art they’ve undoubtedly perfected by touring non-stop around the country. Vundabar’s shows never fail to be captivating, complete with infectious jams, guitar moves galore, intricate drum work, and humorous stage banter to top it all off, the band has become known for putting on an entertaining show.
-Small Crush formed when lead-singer, songwriter, and bassist Logan Hammon felt that her band wasn’t giving her enough freedom to write her own songs. She stole the lead-guitarist Jackson Felton, knocked on the drummer Will Scherer's door down the street and started a new project out of their garage. The trio, what was to become Small Crush, started making music inspired from Hammon’s voice memos and titled from a self-professed “inability to crush on someone for a long time, so lots of little crushes.” Not long after the band’s genesis, Hammon and Felton recruited rhythm guitarist Thomas DeBourbon and started playing house shows, coffee shops, and small venues. The effect of Hammon’s virtuosic lyrical introversion over playful riffs evokes Frankie Cosmos and Waxahatchee. The music seems to be derived from many small crushes, evoking a sincere and intense conviction too often lost in adulthood. -Berkeley B side magazine
Not From England
-from Los Angeles, CA
-Despite the name, L.A.’s Not From England are actually pretty enthusiastic about musicians from England—this is not a “We Don’t Need The English” situation—and you’ll hear some of that in their Manchester-adjacent amen-break drumbeat and in those bluntly charismatic vocals that lift a little of Primal Scream’s swagger. (And of course there’s some Sonic Youth in that shock-you-awake intro, too.) This intensely motivated teenage quartet—guitarist/vocalists Cass Blum and Leo Blumenfield plus bassist DeRon Munroe and drummer Beckett Pasdar—started with home demos in the summer of 2018 and graduated to a 2019 EP recorded with FIDLAR drummer Max Kuehn. ~ LA Record
