Brass Box
Brass Box
With enchanting dream goth/ shoegaze tracks, Brass Box take listeners on a journey through life, death and the darkness that swells beneath the surface. Duo, Ammo Bankoff and Neil Popkin originally met several years prior at an underground new wave/ goth party in Los Angeles. The bands in which Bankoff played (Tête, Black Flamingo) occasionally shared bills with Popkin’s bands (War Tapes, Rituals). Due to their musical connection both musicians naturally collaborated. Popkin then brought in guitarist Matt Bennett (War Tapes) and drummer Pablo Amador (Rituals), to round out the heavy sounds of Brass Box. Since joining forces the quartet has assembled lush compositions of melody and noise while recording in their Downtown Los Angeles home studio. Some describe the sound as a mix between My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins, but you can decide for yourself.
Tangients
Tangients
Los Angeles duo TANGIENTS sound like a place “where post punk, shoegaze, and the dreamier side of elegant pop music meet” (Destroy//Exist).

Chelsea Ray’s intense, yet dream-like vocals can pierce as well as float over multi-instrumentalist Be Hussey’s thick wall of sonics. Hussey is a producer with vast recording and touring experience (GUIDES, Radar Bros.). Paired with Chelsea Ray’s “mystifying voice [that] has that haunting Björk timbre” (Turn Up The Volume), TANGIENTS is “ethereal bliss at its finest” (Magnetic Magazine). They will release their debut record in 2019.
Dancing Tongues
Dancing Tongues
Dancing Tongues is a post-punk duo formed in late 2015 by Kevin Modry and Alex Lavayen. They self-released an EP titled, Positions in 2016; a small selection of the band’s early recordings. After performing in Los Angeles for a year, the pair set out to record their debut LP, Hypnotic Tales of Sex and Distress. They enlisted producer Jonny Bell (Crystal Antlers, Hanni El Khatib, The Buttertones, Tijuana Panthers) and recorded the album in Long Beach, CA.

Hypnotic Tales of Sex and Distress is Dancing Tongues’ first full-length record. It is a collection of personal tales about real love, real sex and real distress during a time when we have such a disruptive flow of information fighting to redefine what these three things mean. The record is a hypnotic journey with chapters marked by songs that feature tightly coiled, aggressive post-punk and others that seemingly unfold into lush and lurid western landscapes.
Skin Mag
Skin Mag
Playing a guitar driven and hazy style of music that they define as ‘post major 7th,’ Skin Mag is a five-piece band from Long Beach, California. With their successful first release, Singles, the band is set to release their debut LP in late 2018.

Skin Mag was formed in 2016 by singer and guitarist Shane Barton, bassist Davis Stewart, drummer Devin Stewart, and multi instrumentalists Noah Kurtz and Jack Nugent
