The infamously fierce, feminist pioneers of American grunge punk came back into the spotlight upon the announcement of their documentary film, L7: Pretend We’re Dead, fully funded by fans across the globe via Kickstarter. Often credited as a leading force behind the grunge movement of the late ‘80s and for their influence on riot grrrl bands of the early ‘90s, the reaction to the announcement was far more electric than they could have expected, catalyzing a widely anticipated reunion of the band in its original line-up.  
L7 took the stage for the first time in 18 years during May of 2015, receiving accolades from the likes of Rolling Stone, LA Weekly, and many more. For a taste of their live energy that still radiates to this day, fans can watch the first reunion performance of “Shit List” at The Echo in Los Angeles. 
The band is now set on a North American tour, hitting stages with their high-octane energy from coast to coast. Be sure to catch L7 in a city near you and stay tuned for additional announcements coming soon!

The Garden share new track 'Haha' - Title track from LP out on Oct 9th on Epitaph/Burger Records

Stream the title track from The Garden’s upcoming album. Out on Epitaph/Burger Records. 


‘Visionary and forward thinking’ i-D           

‘Thrilling and ferociously paced avant-punk’ NME

‘They have rock in their DNA’ The Guardian

West Coast neo-punk twins, moonlighting models and provocateurs The Garden are set to release their debut album proper via Epitaph/Burger Records on October 9th, offering a glimpse into their breakbeat-propelled world of electro-punk anarchy.

The duo represent a youthful punk scene in California with their DIY principles, thrift store-cum-glam fashion style and a list of pick ’n’ mix influences that stretch far beyond The Minutemen. Their minimalist two-piece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and immediate, with a visceral live element that saw them sell-out their first 2 headline runs in the UK - as well as supporting Warpaint across Europe. They strip off everything unnecessary about modern punk and get straight to the heart of it, consistently defying categorisation and breaking new ground with their ‘Vada Vada*’ philosophy. 

Fact is, Wyatt and Fletcher Shears don’t give a shit what you think, they’ve been conceptualising their own style since well before the formation of the band in 2011. Together they are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralised. They be grindin'

* Vada-Vada: "an idea that represents pure creative expression, that disregards all previously made genres and ideals” Wyatt Shears, 2015

Mystic Braves Premiere "Great Company" on Brooklyn Vegan

Mystic Braves Premiere "Great Company" on Brooklyn Vegan, Announce New Days of Yesteryear LP

Headlining Teragram Ballroom w/ No Parents, On Tour Now

09.01 - Valley Bar - Phoenix, AZ
09.02 - Club Congress - Tucson, AZ

11.05 - The Chapel - San Francisco, CA

Mystic Braves’ might be rooted in the psychedelic scene of the 1960s, but the band’s moment is happening right now.

Based in Echo Park, Los Angeles—home of a white-hot garage band revival of which the Braves are at the forefront—this five-piece musical sensation started out as a hobby, but for the musicians involved has become much more.

When the band isn’t selling out shows across the state, playing alongside legendary bands like The Zombies or providing the soundtrack for can’t-miss fashion events like Saint Laurent Paris’ Spring-Summer 2015 collection, it’s holed up in an L.A. studio recording its third album and plotting a series of tours that will take its intoxicating brand of psych-pop across the country and the world.

And while the group—made up of Julian Ducatenzeiler on guitar and vocals, Tony Malacara on bass and vocals, Shane Stotsenberg on guitar and vocals, Cameron Gartung on drums and Ignacio Gonzalez on organ and tambourine—isn’t straying far from what Ducatenzeiler describes as a “a blend of influence and sound that is unprecedented in contemporary music,” there are certainly some changes afoot.

“These new songs are along the same lines as what we’ve been doing, but we’ve elevated the songwriting,” Ducatenzeiler says. “We’ve always been a pop-structured psych band and we’re continuing along those lines, but we’re trying some new things out as well.”

Indeed, the group is experimenting with more exotic instruments on
this album such as a Mellotron keyboard, sitar, etc., and is building a library of new songs to show off its invigorating style not only in the studio but at a series of big-ticket festivals including Burgerama, Desert Days and the Austin Psych Fest.
It’s quite a long way from how the group began. “We had no idea when we started that we’d come as far as we have,” Ducatenzeiler says. “But from the moment we put our demos online, people were responding to them.”

It was the song “Trippin’ Like I Do”—and the charmingly beachy video that accompanied it—released in 2013, that first got the band noticed. It also didn’t hurt that the Echo Park studio the band used would become home to the influential indie label Lolipop Records. Mystic Braves were the first band recorded at Lolipop, and out of this collaboration, a psych pop revival was created.

Since those early days, Mystic Braves have gone on to release two full-length records—both recorded at Lolipop—and a single and have played extensively to ever-increasing crowds in Southern California and beyond. And that goodwill their first songs garnered has never gone away.

“That was a good sign that this was all going somewhere,” 
Ducatenzeiler says, “And that playing in this band is definitely what we need to be doing.”

Failure to Tour as Four-Piece in October, Announce CMJ & Soundwave Performances



                To view footage for “Mulholland Dr.” click image above or follow this link: http://vevo.ly/SdVqTY

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 2, 2015 – Failure return to the road in support of The Heart Is A Monster this October with a special friend in tow, former touring band member, Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age). Van Leeuwen was a touring member behind Fantastic Planet and played on four of the songs from The Heart Is A Monster.

“This is a very special tour to me for a couple of reasons,” says singer/guitar player Ken Andrews.  “One reason is the fact that we have some very cool bands joining us: Hum, Torche, Local H, And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. The second reason this tour is so special to me is that we have managed to secure our dear friend and former band mate, Troy Van Leeuwen as the fourth member of Failure for this tour.  I’m personally excited by this as it’s going to allow us to expand our live sound and repertoire. Think “Snow Angel” and “I Can See Houses” from The Heart Is A Monster, as well as a few gems from the past like our cover of “Enjoy The Silence.”

Failure has also confirmed their Australian live debut with an outing on Soundwave 2016.  Soundwaves Founder AJ Maddah took to Twitter and personally confirmed Failure’s appearance, saying “Getting Failure to play Soundwave 2015 is my personal definition of success!  Fantastic Planet changed my life.”

The band, who wrapped up an extensive North American in support of the recently released album share footage from their Austin performance, with clips of “Mulholland Dr.” (http://vevo.ly/SdVqTY) and “Wet Gravity” (http://vevo.ly/9dtcXk). The album, which is the culmination of a reunion for the space rock trio that kicked off in February 2014, was released in June. Rolling Stone said the release “brilliantly picks up where Fantastic Planet left off,” Alternative Press said “by reviving its past, Failure has taken a most decisive step into the present and Entertainment Weekly described The Heart Is A Monster as “a jaw-dropping slab of throbbing, fuzzy, visceral space rock.”

Empress Of premieres new video "How Do You Do It" | debut album 'Me' out Sept. 11

Today Empress Of (a.k.a. Lorely Rodriquez) has released a new music video for How Do You Do It,” the third single from her debut album Me, out September 11 on Terrible Records.  Reflecting the deeply personal themes of Me, the video for “How Do You Do It” was filmed in Lorely’s hometown of Los Angeles and plays out like a personal travelogue giving viewers an intimate look inside the life of Empress Of.  “On tour, I spend 23 hours of my day driving, flying, shaving my legs in gross venue bathrooms, sleeping on floors or in motels…to get to that one hour of bliss on stage. I wanted to make a video about this other side of being an artist,” explains Lorely.  
Watch the video HERE: http://po.st/HDYDI
"Me is a bold statement of intent,” exclaims Noisey in a recent interview with Empress Of. “Not just in terms of its title but also in its sound. Ignoring alt-pop's eternal propensity to hide in the shadows, Me pushes the vocals and lyrics to the forefront, augmenting them with melodies that dig in from the outset."
Me was produced, recorded and engineered entirely by Lorely over the course of 2014. The ten-track album plays out like diary entries; musing on the personal, the political, and everything that falls in-between.  On tracks, which you can preview now, Kitty Kat and Water Water,” Lorely sings candidly on street harassment and water scarcity, but mostly Lorely's lyrics are more introspective; songs of broken relationships, new ones starting, and ultimately, self-reliance. If clarity is what she seeks, Lorely has found it in Me. 
In support of Me, Empress Of will complete a headline, North American tour that starts September 6 in Philadelphia (full list of dates below). Additionally Empress Of recently completed a three night residency at Power Lunches in Dalston. This short run of shows was inspired by a similar week of shows in NYC, her 5 night residency at Elvis Guesthouse saw her joined by a unique mix of musicians including Ezra Koenig, Dev Hynes and Terrible Records label mate Le1f. Lastly, she’ll join Purity Ring for dates abroad this fall. Full information below.
In other news, Lorely recorded a cover of Katy Perry’s “Hot N Cold” for Rookie Mag’s August Theme. You can listen to that cover here: http://www.rookiemag.com/2015/08/theme-song-empress-of/
Empress Of on tour:

About Me: The roots of Me start in an empty practice space in Brooklyn, where Lorely spent many nights dancing alone next to a little spinning silver disco ball. "After touring the EP, I realized I wanted to make music that was fun to perform live,” she says. But ultimately the city put her in a less-than-inspired headspace. Her intuitive search for a more introspective and isolated writing experience led her to unexpectedly life-changing and mind-bending solo trip to Valle de Bravo, Mexico. The isolation sent her deep inside her head, to pull out everything she wanted to pour into Me. "Every lyric on the record, I could tell you exactly what I was doing when I wrote it,” Lorely exaplins, "I wanted to write songs that gave me this feeling of reliving moments in my life.”

He asked Atlas Genius to follow in Noelle's footsteps and participate in a DoRite Collab. Together with Mahin and Chef Francis Brennan, the band concocted the "Friendly Ape" donut , which is available exclusively at DoRite Donuts in Chicago through September 11. Named after a track onInanimate Objects, the vegan donut combines slow roasted Michigan apples with a cardamom vanilla bean glaze, cinnamon granola and spices. Zach Brooks speaks with Atlas Genius in the latest "Food is the New Rock" podcast, which can be found HERE .
Atlas Genius' 20 13 full-length debut, When It Was Now, was hailed by Rolling Stone as a "spritely, melodic debut album" and featured the Gold-certified hit single "Trojans."

Records and began 18 months of non-stop touring, including two national headline tours, opening for Imagine Dragons and Silversun Pickups and playing festivals like Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Sasquatch, Firefly and many others.
