TV Heads
TV Heads
TV Heads is a four-piece band born in the artistic crucible of the Bay Area and raised in Los Angeles on a steady diet of post-punk riffs, raw vocals, and electro textures. TV Heads are setting out to do a Summer 2017 Tour throughout the West Coast and Southwest in continued support of their debut EP, “Total Fucker”, out now on OIM Records.
Soft Lions
"Every Soft Lions song is basically born in my diary", states Megan Liscomb, the shy, rainbow-haired singer/guitarist of the San Diego trio Soft Lions. Liscomb's songs evoke heartfelt memories, distilling in them a wide range of emotional states and colors.

The band crafts songs that are a blur of decades, mixing the sound of 60's San Francisco pop with noisy garage-guitar driven tracks, lending the songs a definitive west coast vibe. Liscomb's songwriting is angular and interesting without losing any of the big sing-along melodies you want to hear. Soft Lions have cut their teeth like any new band should: by playing a bunch of local shows and sharing the stage with numerous national acts. They also made an appearance at this year's SXSW festival.

On their new EP Spellbreaker, Soft Lions dive into dark, confessional material. The high spirited title track and as well as 'Waitress' showcase the band's gritty rock potential. The EP concludes with the ultra-tender 'Phantom,' a ballad about coming to grips with one's past. When Liscomb's wounds are healed so are ours. The overall sound of Spellbreaker draws on a broad range of inspirations, including retro surf licks, Sonic Youth records, and some specific vintage films, creating a moody, groovy atmosphere. The 4 tracks function as a narrative that looks back on the loss of adolescence and realizes how the end of destructive relationships can lead to the beginning of a new, happier life. In just 16 minutes, Soft Lions prove they are deserving of attention. We hope you'll agree!
mothdrops
Based out of Echo Park, m o t h d r o p s is the post-apocalyptic psych pop outfit which popped into being when Andrew Giurgiun and Jake Stein ritualistically sacrificed a beanie baby over a burning pile of pokemon cards. Having given worthy tribute to the Cosmic Bringer of Giddiness, Tickles and Vibes, they could finally alchemize and glamour the most colorful of sounds, resulting in a sonic array of passion and kittens, which still rains to this day in various locations over the Pacific Ocean. Reconciling the sonic whirlpool of Beach House, Serge Gainsbourg, and Ariel Pink, at a m o t h d r o p s show you'll be bombarded with tunes that spend years wandering the depths of your ear canal, only to lose faith in themselves and question their meaningless existence as sonic shadows.
The Outer Vibe
The Outer Vibe is a musical vacation where everyone enjoys a slice of paradise delivered by the band's feel-good nostalgic and energetic concert experience. "Clint Eastwood drinking a pina colada at a Dick Dale concert" is how the band describes the sounds and styles of their 2015 full-length release "Full Circle," a collection of songs they often describe as cinematic surf disco.

"Full Circle" was created in collaboration with producer Brad Dollar (Grateful Dead, Keb-Mo, The National) and mastering engineer Joe LaPorta (The Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Vampire Weekend). Upon its release in May 2015, "Full Circle" was supported by a national tour, along with radio airplay in 11,000 retail stores, commercial radio airplay in 5 midwest states, and airplay on 200+ college radio stations.

Dollar says, "When I listen to the latest batch of The Outer Vibe productions, I feel like I'm on a vacation I don't want to leave. The guitars feel like a Cheshire smile on a sunny beach, the drums beat like perfect waves on the shore. Everything stays glued together with sticky-sweet vocals, trumpets sounding from the west, and bass sounds that walked down from another planet. All at the same moment providing reflection and rejoice."

"Full Circle" is a follow-up to their 2012 album "Hoka Hey", which independently achieved much success, achieving top 5 request at radio in Michigan, Wisconsin, and the Dakotas and licensing from ABC News's "Good Morning, America" and West Michigan's Baker College in 2013.
