Goon
Goon
Goon is the project of LA-based musician and visual artist Kenny Becker. With a medical condition that periodically deadens his sense of smell and hearing, Becker began writing songs as a means of making the most of his life when those symptoms were absent. The results, Dusk of Punk, are a murky blend of smoldering guitars, melodic hooks, and batter-ram rhythms that serve as the musical translations of a mind that’s routinely betrayed by its own body.

Their debut EP Dusk of Punk pushes the boundaries of standard “lo-fi” music with both it’s diversity in songwriting and it’s somehow incredibly layered composition. The production is lo-fi but incredibly full and lush sounding. Their songs are loud and fuzzed out but are anchored down by beautiful harmonies. Even acoustic based songs are rounded out by delicate synths, drum machines or the occasional radio sample. The end result is a diverse and incredibly complex record that evolves with each listen.
Alyeska
Alyeska
Alyeska, formed by song writer and guitarist Alaska Reid who moved from a small town in Montana. Alyeska is a three piece band. Alaska met drummer Ben Spear, and began to further form a dynamic sound that was still heavy but that left room for Alaska. Just this year the band recorded three songs with producer John Agnello whose credits include Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth and Phosphorescent-- all artists that inspire the band.
