Automatic
Automatic
Formed in late 2017, Automatic is a promising band to watch in Los Angeles’ oversaturated scene. Bored with guitar music and traditional song structures, the post-punk trio comprised of Izzy Glaudini (synth/vocals), Halle Saxon Gaines (bass/vocals) and Lola Dompe (drums/vocals) has set off on their own unique path, marrying the avant-garde synth experimentation of Suicide with the driving motorik rhythms of Neu! And Can. Their debut EP, recorded by Richard James and Joo-Joo Ashworth (Froth), quickly made the rounds through LA’s underground, showcasing a Broadcast-inspired pop sensibility as a counterpoint to their aggressive synth-punk approach. In just a few short months, the band has garnered the attention of some of Southern California’s major players, earning them support slots for the likes of Poptone (ex-Bauhaus/Love and Rockets/Tones on Tail) and Surfbort.
Future Shoxxx
Future Shoxxx
Future Shoxxx is synthesizer trio Sharif Dumani (Sex Stains, Alice Bag, Exploding Flowers), Quinn Brayton (Centimeters, New Collapse), and Liam Philpot (Future Pigeon, Jimmy Cliff, Roddy Radiation). Using analog synthesizers, drum machines, saxophone, and sci-fi-like effects, their aggressive synth sound harks back to late-70’s/early-80’s references such as Suicide, the Units, Fad Gadget, and the Screamers. But beyond the sonic assault lay cascading synthesizer swells, hypnotic arpeggiators, and thumping rhythms that come closer to earlier electronic pioneers Harmonia, Conrad Schnitzler, and Silver Apples (who Dumani recorded and toured with) than it does pure aggression.
Flat Worms
Flat Worms
The Apparition / Melt the Arms is the third release from Los Angeles band Flat Worms (Tim Hellman, Justin Sullivan, Will Ivy) on New York's Famous Class Records. The 7" single follows their debut LP on Castle Face records. Bothe records were recorded with Ty Segall in his home studio during a global heatwave.

"The dream was an apparition."
