Musical act Bleeding Rainbow is on tour now and is making a few Southern Californian pit stops: catch them at the Church On York on April 30.
It’s easy to be fascinated by Pyramid Vritra. According to his bio, the young LA musician has had successes via MySpace with the Odd Future crew and works part time driving a forklift in a South Los Angeles home improvement store. He’s a quiet, contemplative dude which is why his drawn out, almost spoken work song “Spool” feels very emblematic of his true self. He positions himself as a bit of a cosmic deity.
Local synth pop act Moderns have recently hit the scene with their totally jam-able song “Sub Urban.” Quite nice: catch it below!
The Echoplex is welcoming a (pre) Cinco De Mayo bash with El Conjunto Nueva Ola on May 4. Someone named “Skapeche Mode” will be performing as well.
Dorian Wood is basically a young Antony Hegarty. They have a similar vocal range and style and both identify as queer musicians. Both artists are incredibly creative and pursue parallel tracks in visual and performance arts. While Hegarty comes from South England, Wood comes from Echo Park: they’re very different artists but share a similar sensibility.
Wood is still very much coming into his own too. He’s not content releasing music and letting it travel where it goes but instead uses his music as a means to ignite further artistic work. His latest album Rattle Rattle was released over a year ago yet there is still juicy media springing out from it. The latest example of this is the video for the album’s closer “O” which is more than a performance document or music video: it’s a collaborative art project.
