PREMIERE: Moon Honey “Life Has No Meaning”

The plight of the monarch butterfly may not seem like a fitting subject for a song, yet LA's Moon Honey tackles butterflies, climate change, and death itself in their new single "Life Has No Meaning." Don't let it get you down though. Frontwoman Jess Joy uses the flutter of her voice and a kilowatt smile [...]

PREMIERE: Billy Moon “Tangerine Dream”

Punk is a loaded word. It's been ascribed to popular artists as diverse as New Found Glory, Green Day, and Patti Smith. Graham Caldwell makes music as Billy Moon that expands beyond the label, gifting listeners with a tonally diverse album made for a record player's full turns. Punk Songs, Caldwell's debut LP, contains traces [...]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Code Anchor “Hoist”

Do you remember a time when bands could pack venues with zero social media presence? That was the case for Code Anchor only 8 years ago, who had a significant following in Long Island, NY before their breakup scattered its members across the country. This distance didn’t stop them from rekindling their musical partnership and [...]

PREMIERE: Cillie Barnes “Mudslides”

Vanessa Long is the woman behind Cillie Barnes, a five-piece "avant-pop" project out of Happy Valley, California. It's her Ojai style, her witchy lyrics, and her shaman (that's right, I said shaman) that make this band feel intrinsically LA. It's an easy aesthetic to dismiss nowadays. Every band north of the 101 carries crystals in their [...]

PREMIERE: Ace of Wands “Float The Flood”

On the minor arcana tarot card from which the Toronto-based band Ace of Wands take their name, a hand reaches out from a cloud to present a flowering branch, signifying inspiration, power, creation, beginnings, and potential. It is with this offering in mind that Lee Rose, the woman behind both the music and the visual storytelling that [...]

PREMIERE: Uruguay “Pretty Pretty Rampage”

If you have something to say, say it with style. Stepha Murphy and Benjamin Dawson-Sivalia, aka Uruguay, are looking to make a big impact on the world; from their socially conscious lyrics to their carefully curated clothes, they are two artists working their image from the ground up. "Pretty Pretty Rampage," their latest track, is dedicated [...]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Emily Jane Powers “Sullen Days”

With her latest video, Emily Jane Powers proves there's more than one shade of blue when it comes to feeling sad. The Chicago-based art rocker's clip for "Sullen Days" is an atmospheric meditation on the spectrum of emotions contained within a sullen or sad mood. The entire video was shot on an iPhone by Powers’ [...]

PREMIERE: Church Girls “Black Seas”

Photo by Marissa Carroll Mariel Beaumont has a few tricks up her sleeve this year. Her band Church Girls has a new EP Home, set to release in September, with more music coming down the pipeline later this year. Beaumont has described her band as "straightforward punk / 90’s indie rock", and it [...]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Powersnap “Chemistry”

The only thing I remember from high school chemistry class is making ice cream and how a microwave works. I don’t remember any specific purple substances guarded by emotionless 20-somethings wearing black. Like Powersnap front woman Romi Hanoch, I too would be intrigued and would feel the need to attain said purple substance. Maybe this [...]

VIDEO PREMIERE: LYONS “Strawberry Moon”

The moon controls the tides of our oceans, and since humans are about 60% water, it makes sense that the moon could possibly be influencing the tides of our minds. According to some astrologists, the full moon’s influence on your life can last plus or minus five days. It can signify the culmination of a [...]
