The Echo Presents
Second Still (Record Release Party!), Human Leather, Intimatchine
Sun August 13, 2017
Los Angeles, CA
This event is 18 and over
Haunted by the ghosts of The Cure, Killing Joke and Joy Division, THE SOFT KILL's sound is full of skittering single-note guitar runs, propulsive dirges and melodic art damage. IF you were among the 1500 or so who crammed into The Regent last fall for Part Time Punks when they opened for ChameleonsVox, or the 900+ who crammed into The Echoplex for either Clan Of Xymox or Modern English earlier this year then you already know they're also INCREDIBLE live....
Part Time Punks
PART TIME PUNKS is a club that takes over noted Echo Park live music venue, The Echo on 1822 Sunset, every Sunday night. The night focuses heavily on DIY and Indie vinyl coming out of the U.S., UK and Europe from 1977 to the present: Punk, Post-Punk, Synth-Punk, Synthpop, Minimal Synth, Dark/Cold/Minimal Wave, NDW, Industrial, New Wave, No Wave, C86, Indiepop, Twee, Shoegaze, Baggy and even Krautrock…
Soft Kill's introduction to the world was 2011's "An Open Door" and since then, despite many ups and downs and false starts, the band has issued several limited releases and played sporadic yet memorable shows. 2014 marks their return with the reissue of their debut and a new album of guitar-driven doom & gloom that borrows from projects like Asylum Party, For Against and Chameleons UK.
Second Still (Record Release Party!)

US synthwave duo from Salt Lake City.
Both scholars in separate performance fields, INTIMATCHINE derive from cardinal and mutable differences. Formed in 2008 by a Los Angeles-based couple, Chelsey Holland and Christopher Wormald broke up, which inspired satirized themes of their intimate exchanges. The result was a visceral musical collaboration that brought her moody vocal narratives together with his proto-industrial soundscapes. Their March 2014 debut EP, "I'll Eat You Last," is a reflection of these real and imaginary dramas accentuated by effects-driven guitar, droning synths, and hypnotic percussions. INTIMATCHINE remain active on various online communities and dating websites to offer their own journal of romantic plight, which informs their relationship advice column.
