Ringo Deathstarr
-from Austin, TX
-Ringo Deathstarr, a musical trio from Austin, TX, have been putting out records since 2007. Consisting of Elliott Frazier (guitar, vocals), Alex Gehring (bass, vocals), and Daniel Coborn (drums, vocals), their sound is born from a love of melody, a love of guitar, and a hatred of pompous vocals.

Taleen Kali
-from Los Angeles, CA
-Influenced by melodies and imagery from her Armenian heritage and her parents’ birthplaces of Lebanon and Ethiopia, Kali fuses her lineage with sonics of the modern countercultures she grew up embracing, exploring everything from punk to Brit-pop. With fiery live sets and swirling sonics, Taleen and her band have quickly become a fixture in the L.A. music underground.

When Taleen’s band TÜLIPS went out with a bang at their final headline show at The Regent Theater in 2016, Taleen went solo, sharing bills and touring the country with indie luminaries such as Ex Hex, Alice Bag, and Seth Bogart. Her 2018 debut EP Soul Songs, produced by Kristin Kontrol (Dum Dum Girls), mixed by Brad Laner (Medicine), and recorded at Hollywood’s legendary Sunset Sound Studios, found Taleen’s riot grrrl ethos maturing into a polished, multifaceted punk sound with noise pop and new wave influences. Upon its release, Kali received praise from outlets like BUST Magazine and Stereogum, who likened her sound to a contemporary Blondie, and Soul Songs was included in Pitchfork’s Guide to Summer Albums and LA Weekly’s Best Indie Punk Albums.

A multi-hyphenate to the core, Kali is also the founder of experimental label Dum Dum Records and what The L.A. Times calls “cult favorite” DUM DUM Zine. A sound healer who often leads group meditations, she pivoted from punk psychedelia in late 2021 for the release of her soundbath album Songs For Meditation. Her poetry, essays, and visual art have appeared in digital and international publications including The Onion, SPIN, Razorcake, Los Angeleno, and The Bushwick Review.

Taleen Kali’s first full-length album, Flower Of Life, came out March 3, 2023 on Dum Dum Records. It was produced by The Smashing Pumpkins’ Jeff Schroeder and Josiah Mazzaschi (Child Seat, Bizou, Light FM), and recorded at The Cave Studio, home to records by The Jesus and Mary Chain, IDLES, and members of Slowdive, The Smiths, Lush, The Kills, Warpaint, and Happy Mondays.

The title track debuted as the album’s first single on KEXP April 2022, and the final single, “Crusher,” premiered on KEXP and KCRW in 2023, with heavy airplay on Henry Rollins’ “Fanatic” radio show. The band did 2 full U.S. tours to support the album. Look out for 2024 tour dates and the Flower Of Death remix LP!

-from Los Angeles, CA
-Fime’s first incarnation was a two-piece guitar and drum garage-rock band started by Eric Promani and Beto Brakmo. Started initially with the intention of performing mostly at house parties, the addition of bass player and vocalist Maxine Garcia and Scott Leahy, who has toured with Jerome’s Dream, Sea Wolf, and 1 AM Radio on guitar changed the sound and direction of Fime.

The Group released there “Sprawl” in (2019) And there put out there debut Recorded by Melina Duterte (Jay Som) and distributed by Forged Artifacts.

Their garage rock sound has morphed over time to experimenting with shoegaze, ethereal and gauzy vocals and distorted, reverb laden guitar melodies. With influences from Yo La Tengo, Cocteau Twins and Interpol, the Los Angeles band has built their own signature interpretation of nostalgic alternative rock.
