Dustin Lovelis
Dustin Lovelis
Composer, performer, and multi-instrumentalist Dustin Lovelis has been busy crafting songs in his coastal birth town Long Beach, CA. Since Dustin's late teens, the god-son-of-grunge has toured the globe with a myriad of musical outfits, including The Fling (Dangerbird Records) as primary vocalist and songwriter. Taking a break from touring and the music business, The Fling went on hiatus with no concrete plans to continue. Fortunately for his fans, Dustin couldn't stop writing songs and returns with an ambitious debut solo effort Dimensions, due for release on Porch Party Records on May 19th, 2015.

Dustin's music is drenched in textures both vintage and modern, while his fine-tuned pop-sensibilities rise out of whichever era ignited the inspiration. After The Fling dissolved, Dustin took over all writing responsibility. With a guitar, a microphone, and a bottle of whiskey, Dustin found his way through his influences and pinned his own demos to a multitrack. Without any input from band members, Dustin meticulously created his new DNA of sound with hints of The Everly Brothers, The Pixies, and The Beatles. He knew it was time to return to the studio.

Dustin recorded Dimensions at Elliott Smith's former music home New Monkey Studios. He found the ideal compliments for his timeless sound with an insane amount of gear and incredibly talented musician friends. Elijah Thomson of the band Everest played bass and produced the album, and prolific composer and session player Frank Lenz lays down his dynamic drumming with classic fills. After two days, the basic tracks were finished. A few more instruments and vocals were added, and Dimensions was complete.
Tino Drima
Tino Drima
Tino Drima is a cauldron of then, now, and what will be. Crooning hell harmonies over charmed, ripping beats Tino channels music that feels like it has always existed. Think the inter-dimensional 50s radio in Old Man Cooper's house that portals Classics from a more excellent world into his living room and everybody wants to hang out and listen and maybe stay the night even though it's p weird there
Wilding
Wilding
Wilding is an indie rock band from Los Angeles, California featuring Dave Woody on guitar, Dave Bowman on bass and Andrew Platts on drums.

Wilding mixes anthemic post-pop sensibilities with a hauntingly familiar sound full of soaring guitars, bombastic drums and lamenting vocals. Wilding’s music lends a dark vision to the indie rock landscape.
