The Relationship (Feat. Brian Bell of Weezer)
The Relationship (Feat. Brian Bell of Weezer)
The Relationship is a rock and roll band from Los Angeles, California founded in 2007 by Weezer guitarist Brian Bell. In 2010, Bell released the first Relationship album and has since performed and recorded with a revolving cast of players and collaborators.

The band’s 2015 single, “Oh Allen” (Burger Records), garnered praise from Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Alternative Press, and Rolling Stone. That year, the band also landed coveted spots at Burgerama 4 and Sundance Film Festival.

Currently consisting of Brian Bell (guitar and vocals), Jon LaRue (bass), Justin Goings (drums) and Brandon Graham (lead guitar), The Relationship’s latest full-length album is due out this year. Expect prominent guitars, strong melodies, vivid imagery, and propulsive rhythms.
Cotillon
Cotillon
Cotillon is the musical pseudonym of Jordan Corso, a singer, songwriter, and guitarist whose music is a fusion of indie rock, psychedelia, surf guitar, and pop from various eras, all filtered through Corso's oblique but engaging lyrical sensibilities. The Cotillon story begins when Corso was living in Los Angeles and working an unrewarding office job; Corso had been playing guitar since he was a child, and he started working on songs during his lunch breaks to relieve the monotony. A busted romance gave Corso plenty to write about, and eventually he opted to form a band to perform his new material. Corso named the project Cotillon and released its first EP, Votive Flower, in the fall of 2012. The EP received enthusiastic reviews from the West Coast indie press, and a second EP, White Roses, appeared in the spring of 2013. Chet "JR" White of the indie pop act Girls was bowled over by the first two EPs from Cotillon, and offered to produce an album for the group. The band booked time at EastWest Studios (formerly Western Recorders, where the Beach Boys cut Pet Sounds), and Corso later traveled to San Francisco to do overdubs and mixing with White at his home studio. Corso fell in love with San Francisco and relocated to the Bay Area, with a rotating cast of musicians eventually replacing the original Cotillon lineup. Cotillon's self-titled full-length debut album was released in January 2015 on Burger Records.

Ablebody
Ablebody
Ablebody is an LA-based duo comprised of identical twins Christoph and Anton Hochheim (members of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart + The Depreciation Guild). They’ve been quietly releasing music under this moniker since 2013, self-releasing an EP and 7″ single, crafting remixes and demoing original material as well as a myriad of covers.

Drawing from the raw grandeur of the 60’s, the melodicism of soft 70s pop and the sophisticated side of romantic 80s synth pop, Ablebody stand suspended between decades; students of the past but far from retro fetishists. Their musical prowess is evident but the songwriting remains tastefully direct at all times, with arrangements that bend and move in surprising ways but tastefully blanket the overarching sentiment of the songs in a way that we rarely hear in this decade.

The duo have recently taken their sound from the bedroom to the studio, working with producer/engineer Kenny Gilmore (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti) to craft songs with a more visceral edge than they’ve explored in the past. Daniel Rosenbaum (Pomar) and Jordan Sabolick (Mt. Ossa) have joined the duo to help bring the songs to life and add new dimension to the live dynamic.

Their debut full length record ‘Adult Contemporaries’ will be released by Lolipop Records onOctober 14.
THE PLANTERS
THE PLANTERS
David Yorr and Zac Frank began jamming together in 2009, dropping the seed that would later sprout The Planters. When the pair moved to Los Angeles in 2014 and met with drummer Garren Orr at a friend's party, band practice was declared that week. The three of them rocked venues around Echo Park for two years, during which period they wrote much of the material for their forthcoming EP, including recent single “Do What She Wants.” The group creates infectious hooks and free-flowing harmonies that have garnered comparisons to bands as disparate as The Strokes and CSN.
