La Luz
La Luz
Los Angeles has often been described as a “dream factory”–both a mecca where dreamers converge to pursue long-held aspirations, and a topography of hallucinogenic contradictions: enchanting tangerine sunsets diffused by smog, crystal-clutching spiritualists mingling with deep-pocketed narcissists, rows of scenic palms competing with garish billboards for commuters’ attention.

It was against this backdrop that the four members of La Luz–singer/guitarist Shana Cleveland, drummer Marian Li Pino, keyboardist Alice Sandahl, and bassist Lena Simon–conceived of Floating Features, the band’s third studio album. For this, their most ambitious release yet, La Luz consulted landscapes both physical and psychological.
Ancient Forest
Ancient Forest
Inspired by old plants, deep seasons, and the Incredible String Band, Kalen Walther recorded the first batch of Ancient Forest songs in 2010 when winter quilted Missoula, MT with snow. Over the next few years, Ancient Forest blossomed into a performance group to accompany Lay the Rent to the Bonnie Brome, a collage of mountain soundscapes, pop structures, and bardic melodies, and in 2017, Richard's Selections, a more holistic approach to western art music that finds the group exploring it's pocket in the 21st century. Walther lives in Seattle, joined by Ancient friends Jade Tcimpidis, Will Murdoch, and Zach Burba.
