International sensation HOTT MT (Hour Of The Time Majesty Twelve), is an experimental post-pop collective based in Los Angeles, CA. HOTT MT is the result of an ongoing curiosity project between Queen Ashi Dala and Spooky Tavi, which expanded to include multi-instrumentalist Bahd Bad in December of 2011, and guitarist Guitty Dryver and drummer Chairman Towel in early 2012. Thoughts and anxieties about myth, experience, conspiracy theories, and Thailand fuel the groups explorations.
HOTT MT made headlines in 2012 when they drove from LA to Oklahoma City to pay homage to Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips. The trip resulted in a collaboration between Coyne and HOTT MT on the song “Never Hate Again”, and the song "2012" featuring Ke$ha and Biz Markie. “Never Hate Again” was released by Origami Vinyl in August 2012 with an accompanying video also featuring Coyne. "2012" was released as the lead track on the Flaming Lips collaboration album Heady Fwendz.
HOTT MT's debut LP “I Made This” was released in May, and they recently completed work w/ The Flaming Lips on a Stone Roses cover album (release TBD). Live highlights include shows supporting Bat For Lashes, Wavves, Frightened Rabbit, Ra Ra Riot, Django Django, Robert DeLong, Hands, and The Flaming Lips, including their Guinness World Record setting event.
Sonoda is the full-band realization of Lisa Sonoda's solo bedroom project. The songs on Clearing (released in 2017 via Never Anything Records) are reveries for the heartbroken— reverberant lullabies about memories, the stars, loneliness and goodbyes.
In Sonoda, the songs are embodied by Lisa's ethereal voice— simultaneously haunting and enchanting— nestled in a stereophonic dream landscape of fluttering guitars, blooming synthesizer textures, and lush casio organ overtones.
