“So Far/Vertigo” by Warm Weather

Everybody loves warm weather, especially the eccentric-pop trio called Warm Weather who ditched their East Coast homes for the sunnier shores of SoCal and now live in West Hollywood. Having already self-released two EPs (“Dances” and “Looking Through”), their sound varies with relaxed strums and retrotastic harmonies, but the upbeats always win. Highlighting their songography is the worldbeat-ish track “So Far/Vertigo” that Vampire Weekend forgot to write. Maybe it’s a preppy Ivy League thing since Warm Weather went to Dartmouth and Vampire Weekend went to Columbia.

Warm Weather is currently in Truth Studios recording their debut full-length which will be mastered by Jeff Lipton of Peerless Mastering (Bon Iver, Andrew Bird).

“Reminder” by Warships

Echo Park-based Warships makes groove-based pop rock perfect for barefoot dance parties on a backyard lawn. Like drinking a Margarita on a late Summer afternoon, their songs start off laid back, but when the buzz kicks in it’s time to move! Plus, their guitarist/vocalist Edson Choi sounds a bit like Sting (or shall we dare now say Gotye?) Warships managed to recruit producer Raymond Richards (Local Natives, The Parson Red Heads, Honeyhoney) for their debut EP which will hopefully be released in the Fall, but for now here’s a track:

Warships is hosting the June residency every Tuesday at The Central.
