Haunted Summer
Haunted Summer
The songs of Haunted Summer are dreamy and hypnotic, rich with orchestral strings and sultry electronic textures. With their previous EP, Something in the Water, the group crafted a captivating, ethereal musical journey through a nostalgic world of young love and long-forgotten memories. Consisting of husband-and-wife Bridgette Moody and John Seasons, who share songwriting duties in a true collaboration, the Highland Park duo have shared the stage and toured with groups and performers including Taken By Trees, Islands, Deafheaven, The Polyphonic Spree, Coeur De Pirate, Olafur Arnalds, Carla Morrison, Meiko, Basia Bulat, Geographer, David J of Bauhaus and many more.



Their new full-length, Spirit Guides, was written on the road as well as recorded in several studios including Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree, Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood, Comp-ny LA, and studios owned by Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene, Oregon. It features an array of talented musicians, including (but not limited to!) Dave Catching from Eagles of Death Metal and Chris Goss from Masters of Reality (both of whom are on the title track). Having completed multiple headlining tours across the country and a new 45 day tour to start 2018 off, Haunted Summer is poised to bring their psychedelic sound to the world.
Mooncult
Mooncult
Listening to Mooncult is like stepping into the John Peel show in 1979. After years of existential study, songstress Raven Mystere formed the band in 2017. Things began to take shape with the arrival of ferocious drummer David Branscomb (Adam and the Ants, Fishbone, Cypress Hill, and 16 Volt). This was then augmented with some dreamy, synth soundscapes and infectious bass from Mark Mallory (Wild Betsy, Lunar Gateway). Phil Cobb (House of Affection, Neo Globs) crystallizes the music with a wash of shoegazy guitar textures that are the sonic equivalent of planes taking off. Raven's mono croon and the band's psychedelic flair feel like darkness in full bloom. After just a handful of shows, Mooncult has garnered a loyal following in Los Angeles.
Strange Phases
Strange Phases
Strange Phases was born from the vision of guitarist/vocalist Curt Barlage in 2015. Fresh from the split of his previous band, The Bixby Knolls, Curt instantly immersed himself in the dim, red lights and cigarette haze of an east downtown Los Angeles studio to begin the next chapter of his musical endeavors. Joined by drummer Travis Drum, acquainted by chance meeting, the pair would move beyond the notion that Strange Phases was just a creative hub of scattered ideas and late night demos. Guitarist/keyboardist Monica Mendoza and bassist Patrick Mertens soon joined, completing the line-up and fully functional force known as Strange Phases.

Art of Restart, Strange Phases’ debut, was released in autumn of 2017.
