“Real Life” by FEMINÆ (Premiere)

Feminae photo 1-1After their old band dissolved, Emma Ejwertz and Ryan Crosby kept in touch. Years later, they reconnected to form FEMINÆ. Based in Eagle Rock, the duo layers an electro soundscape via digi-beats and synth soundbeds over Ejwertz’s ethereal vox. But since they’re also guitarists, their sound has evolved with an indie rock flair that has led them to recently recruit drummer Ryan Knights. Here’s their first single, “Real Life,” off their forthcoming debut EP:

FEMINÆ will perform at Club Moscow (Boardner’s) tomorrow (October 1st).

“Love Letters” Music Video by Corners

10460664_611256298982194_627603408382571506_oCorners is an Echo Park staple. The trio of Tracy Bryant, Robert Cifuentes, and Rick Mabery blared their presence in 2012 with the release of Beyond Way –a garage rawk album laced with surf overtones. They’ve since cut a couple seven inches, recruited a fourth member (Moon Flower of Jeffertitti’s Nile), and recorded their full-length follow-up: Maxed Out On Distractions which drops October 7th via Lolipop Records. And they’ve evolved. No longer lo-fi, they’re new single, “Love Letters,” is an unapologetic embracement of post-punk synthwave:

And here’s its foggy live performance music video:


Corners‘ album release show will be at The Echo on October 10th.

“Purple Castle” by Omniflux

silverOmnifluxbrightJust in time for fall’s chilly nights, Omniflux has leaked another signature brood pop track, “Purple Castle,” built on an eerie piano loop, steady digi-beats, darkwave synths, and her breathy, seductive vox. Let’s hope this is just a taste of a forthcoming album.

“Home” Music Video by Freedom Fry

Freedom Fry white wall szmFreedom Fry returns with a music video for their single “Home” off their latest EP The Wilder Mile. The dreamy, folk-pop track is an ode to Los Angeles and the video focuses on the dichotomy of living here. Frontman Bruce Driscoll explains that it shows the “kind of serendipity that seems to be a distinct part of the L.A. mythology.”
