Ramonda Hammer
Ramonda Hammer
Ramonda Hammer is a Los Angeles-based grunge band whose name comes from a lady featured on the early 2000s reality television show Cheaters. The show is funny and sad, kind of how frontwoman and band founder Devin Davis writes her songs. "Davis is the queen of grunge,” says KSPC. In 2017, the band caught Rolling Stone's attention, with writer Maura Johnston naming their "Destroyers" EP an editors' pick and writing "Devin Davis' knotty, unguarded wail and Justin Geter's distortion-heavy, brutally melodic riffs on tracks like the churning 'Bender' and the breakneck 'Care to Slam?' are like an alternate Nineties where L7 was the biggest band in the world." The band's rhythm section – bassist Andy Hengl and drummer Mark Edwards – turn Davis' songs into fully formed anthems: "crunchy, grungey, no-B.S. ’90s-style alt-rock” as Buzzbands.LA described it. They've shared stages with likeminded bands like Slothrust, Palehound, Priests, Potty Mouth, Colleen Green, Dude York, Pile, and were named one of L.A.'s hardest working bands by Oh My Rockness last year. In 2018, the band will reissue the "Destroyers" EP on vinyl, release an album on the New Professor label, and tour the U.S. extensively in support.
LA Font
LA Font
"If the crackling, Pavement-informed indie rock on LA Font's [2010] album 'The American Leagues' feels like a breath of fresh air compared to all the noisy navel-gazing on the scene right now, it's because songwriter Danny Bobbe probably still feels like an outsider. Bobbe moved from Montana to L.A. just two years ago, and his prickly songs have the feel of a wiseguy who suddenly finds himself planted in hipster heaven (if not a homeless haven) and who responds by flaming, with guitar and in verse. It's reminiscent of other local favorites such as Rademacher, the Henry Clay People and Death to Anders, though none of them nails a baseball metaphor as LA Font does in the title track." – Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands.la
JR Slayer
JR Slayer
The life behind JR Slayer is not a band, an album or a solo project. It's a grouping of works by Cody Votolato, formerly the guitarist of The Blood Brothers, Jaguar Love and currently, Head Wound City. The moniker serves as a creative outlet and umbrella for Producing, Remixing, Writing and Performing.
