The Echo & Part Time Punks Present
JUNIORE + SONODA + TANGIENTS
Sun June 24, 2018
Los Angeles, CA
This event is 18 and over
JUNIORE plays a time-lag between the nostalgia of an era never known – that of scopitones, two-stroke engines and journeys on the moon – and a contemporary world, at Tarantino, populated by stories of girls, ghosts, cities and cars. We hear ultra reverberated guitars that respond to harmonies full of spleen and rhythms. [Translated from the French -- so excusez moi.]
Juniore is the brainchild of Anna Jean, a singer who lent her voice to songs of Parisian electro acts like Jackson, Jérôme ''Tacteel” Echenoz and Bot'Ox. Juniore, in which Anna Jean is joined by four other female musicians, is something competely different: surf, psychedelica, french female sixties pop and space age music are all blended together by producer Samy Osta (Rover, La Femme, Louis Chedid), while Anna Jean sings stories about being sleep deprived, restless or falling out of love. Anna's mysterious voice is reminiscent of 60s muses, think Nico meets Françoise Hardy.
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.
