As a collective of LA night-crawlers, Cillie Barnes is a five-piece, avant-pop project helmed by Vanessa Long, previously in Family of the Year.

On board with Long now are Marko Kurtović, Nick White, Thomas Berg, and Andrew Tyler – and for those keeping tabs, their celebrity couple name would be Bergler Long Whitević.

The LA native released two E.P.’s,

Happy Valley and Friendly Witch (produced by Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott);

Had her songs placed in a couple television shows, and has had some quotes written about her.

“Cillie channels the mysterious manic pixie..” (MTV)

Some have described the music as, “Unsettling stylistically as it is thematically..”(BuzzBands)

And some say that it, “Falls around you like a cloak of magic, rich and duskily beautiful..” (Vice Noisy)

But that’s all in the past now and you can make up your own damn mind, can’t you?


Cillie Barnes’ debut full-length, Cobra Lily, produced by Joe Keefe, welcomes you into her moon-lit, imaginative world of sentimental storytelling, anthemic dream pop, and cinematic instrumentation.

A theatrical thread flows throughout these songs transporting you to Twin Peak’s Roadhouse; like at the end of an episode..

leaving you light and lifted, a vague haunting settling sneakily into the dust.

After playing shows with Jenny Lewis, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Maria Taylor, Elliot Sumner, etc..and their own month long residency at The Satellite, Long and her crew enjoy the finer things in life.

Running the Grand Canyon, Good animation, Haunted houses, Hounds, Cheese, Boardgames, Murder Mysteries and Magick.

Christian Lee Hutson
Whoever the gallantly self-defeating 24-year-old singer/songwriter is, he's an amalgamation of a long line of Americana tradition, a packed handful of unpleasant days, and his own past musical endeavors, including 2012's EP Will Never Break Up, and his debut LP, The Hell With It.

Now, after a song-a-month release over the course of 2014 comes Hutson's second album Yeah Okay, I Know, a record championed by Americana UK's James McCurry as "...Startlingly good. Like 'year's end list' good." Yeah Okay, I Know captures twelve songs from the rapidly-evolving King of Bummercore, with all his youthful regrets, laments, and apathy worn unabashedly on his sleeve.

Hutson's search for self spills from his records onto the road in a relentless touring schedule across the States and throughout Europe, where the prolific songster's perpetually unveiling new tunes and discovering new ways to take shots at himself. Like Sean Moeller says in Paste Magazine, "He will change you. Go see him tonight."
