Surf Curse
Surf Curse
Surf Curse is Nick Rattigan and Jacob Rubeck, who started their project in a basement in Reno, Nevada before going to Los Angeles to become a fixture of the DIY scene anchored by internationally-renowned venue The Smell, eventually linking up with likeminded groups like Girlpool, The Garden, and Slow Hollows. Their music is anchored with a blend of punk and pop elements heavily influenced by the pulp of 80’s, cult and arthouse cinema. Coming a few years after the boys broke out with 2013’s Buds LP and Sad Boys EP, their new album Nothing Yet marks not a return-to-form but a significant step forward from a group that has grown older, more mature, and more effective as songwriters.
French Vanilla
French Vanilla
French Vanilla is a feminist art-punk band based in Los Angeles. They regulate the dance floor with punchy bass lines, catchy sax hooks and socially sensitive lyrics. Half-driven by a desire to challenge the established SoCal music scene, dominated by a few influential (male) tastemakers, and half by a desire to hang out with friends, FV started in LA’s queer punk underground and it is in these spaces that they feel the most at home. The band's ideology assumes the generative nature of women’s and/or BFF’s collaboration, and they hope to spread this message until all dude-rock bands cease to exist. More than anything, FV wants you to have fun at their shows and they deliver performances filled with infectious energy and enthusiasm.
Good Sleep
Good Sleep
Five-piece surf-rock collective who replicates the summery sounds of California mixed with the modern feel of city night life. Taking influence from bands like Real Estate, Porches, and Beach House, Good Sleep will help you escape into a dancy dreamspace.
