Billy Changer
Billy Changer
The new single from L.A. garage-rock trio Billy Changer represents a monumental leap from anything on their 2014 debut album. “She’s Good To Go" is a taut, muscular rocker that gallops through three minutes over barbed-wire guitar, an ode to a “requiem dreamer” who’s ready to leave Los Angeles. The song is the first single from Billy Changer’s forthcoming album Best of Fortune. The album finds the band — Robert Cifuentes, Jimmy Ramirez and Wyatt Blair — working with producer/composer Michael Andrews, known primarily for his work in film and TV (Donnie Darko, Me and You and Everyone We Know) but who was a guitar fiend back in the day. “I wanted to get back in a room and play some electric guitar, produce,” Andrew says of the recording sessions in September at his Glendale studio. "It’s a departure from my recent work but right in my sweet spot from another era….Old school.” Here’s to that school.
Vaguess
Vaguess
Dana Point group Vaguess sound like something out of the past, in the best way possible. Every song off their debut album Guilty Rings is an explosion of potent garage punk energy, slyly transitioning into the next song after two minutes or less. Imprinted with a surf-y, lo-fi sound and playful poppiness that recalls early Ramones-era punk, rock n' roll and New Wave, there's a certain joy in their self-deprecating (albeit humorous) lyrics relatable to other disenfranchised slackers— we've all been one, at one point. Whether you prefer to bop or mosh at your punk shows, Vaguess provide a fun atmosphere that's just too hard to resist dancing. -Aimee Murillo
Alyeska
Alyeska
Alyeska, formed by song writer and guitarist Alaska Reid who moved from a small town in Montana. Alyeska is a three piece band. Alaska met drummer Ben Spear, and began to further form a dynamic sound that was still heavy but that left room for Alaska. Just this year the band recorded three songs with producer John Agnello whose credits include Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth and Phosphorescent-- all artists that inspire the band.
