Marbled Eye is a punk band from California’s the Bay Area formed by Michael Lucero, Chris Natividad, Alex Shen and Andrew Oswald. The debut album “Leisure” was recorded by Oswald, who recorded both EP1 and EP2, in Oakland, California. Working with the same labels responsible for releasing EP2, “Leisure” was released in the fall of 2018 on DIGITAL REGRESS (US) and ERSTE THEKE TONTRAEGER (EU).
Formed in late 2017, Automatic is a promising band to watch in Los Angeles’ oversaturated scene. Bored with guitar music and traditional song structures, the post-punk trio comprised of Izzy Glaudini (synth/vocals), Halle Saxon Gaines (bass/vocals) and Lola Dompe (drums/vocals) has set off on their own unique path, marrying the avant-garde synth experimentation of Suicide with the driving motorik rhythms of Neu! And Can. Their debut EP, recorded by Richard James and Joo-Joo Ashworth (Froth), quickly made the rounds through LA’s underground, showcasing a Broadcast-inspired pop sensibility as a counterpoint to their aggressive synth-punk approach. In just a few short months, the band has garnered the attention of some of Southern California’s major players, earning them support slots for the likes of Poptone (ex-Bauhaus/Love and Rockets/Tones on Tail) and Surfbort.
