Band Leader Cutty found a mutual love for all things vintage with band members Chewy Lewy (bass) & Bang Bangs (drums)
Being well versed in the narrative they wanted to tell the end of 2012 marked the beginning of CUTTY FLAM in the form of a single entitled: Robot Heart
"Low end (sub sounds) and Heavy (lyrics/melody) is the first impression I wanted the world to have of our sound".-Cutty
Since then they have recorded a second single released Valentines day 2013 entitled: Whispers.
Their aesthetic is drenched in black and white memorabilia.
March 13 2013 they release a Music Video for their newest single:
Do You Wanna?
Online Music Zine Lo-Pie had this to say: Plays out like a 1950's horror flick. Think "Invasion of the body snatchers" with a rock n' roll twist.... this tune will have you singing along on the second listen".
French Vanilla is a feminist art-punk band based in Los Angeles consisting of Max Albeck (drums), Ali Day (guitar/bass), Sally Spitz (vocals), and Daniel Trautfield (bass/sax). FV regulates the dance floor with vocal freneticism, punchy basslines, and dramatic sax. Half-driven by a desire to challenge the established SoCal music scene, dominated by a few influential (male) tastemakers, and half by a desire to engage with friends, FV started in LA’s queer punk underground. Influenced by generations of feminist punks before them, the band believes in the supremely generative nature of women’s and/or BFF’s collaborating and they hope to spread this message until all dude-rock bands cease to exist. More than anything, FV wants you to have fun at their shows so they deliver performances with infectious energy and enthusiasm. Catch them playing at DIY spaces like Pehrspace and COOLWORLD PARTY LA, weird bars, or at Part-Time Punks. Say hi, they want to hang.
Ramonda Hammer is a Los Angeles grunge-pop quartet who's name comes from a lady featured on the television show Cheaters. The show is funny and sad, kind of how front-woman and band founder Devin Davis writes her songs. "Davis is the queen of grunge,” (KSPC) playing with quirky chord progressions, time signature and tempo changes, and dynamic, biting vocal melodies. The other three fourths of Ramonda Hammer - Andy Hengl, Justin Geter, and Danny Louangxay - turn Davis’ songs into fully flourished anthems, "crunchy, grungey, no-B.S. ’90s-style alt-rock,” (Buzzbands LA). The band's debut album came out in April 2016. It’s called Whatever That Means, which is not only a playful nod to everyone who’s puzzled by the band’s name, but is a lyric from a track on the album. They were named on of "LA's hardest-working bands of 2016" (Oh My Rockness), and won't stop there! Follow the band on all forms of social media and visit RamondaHammer.com to stay connected.
Nineteen-year-old singer/songwriter August Eve learned to play piano by ear, got recruited to join Grammy-nominated conductor Paul Salamunovich’s nationally acclaimed choir at nine, and in her early teens began writing, recording, and self-releasing her own moody and melancholic breed of pop music. After spending the past few years shaping her sound and collaborating with songwriters such as Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Sia, Bat for Lashes) and Linda Perry (Alicia Keys, P!nk, Gwen Stefani), August is now turning her bedroom recordings into a fully realized collection of songs that reveal her natural-yet-refined musical finesse and hypnotic, otherworldly vocal presence.
Written entirely by August (a multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar and bass along with piano), the Los Angeles-based artist’s upcoming EP centers on her deep but ethereal voice, a powerful instrument that August delicately maneuvers to capture every nuance of feeling.
