Egrets on Ergot
Egrets on Ergot
Post-punk, Deathrock, Experimental from Los Angeles, CA

"Los Angeles’ Egrets on Ergot are a hard-to-categorize act that have been compared to everyone from the Birthday Party to the Virgin Prunes. Self-described as a postpunk and experimental band, their cacophonous four-piece approach gives attention to the influences of a particularly underground 80s LA art-rock scene that included the likes of Nervous Gender, 45 Grave, and even early Jane’s Addiction. Some writers have spotted a Krautrock influence in Egrets’ witches’ brew of sonic mayhem."

Ghost Noise
Ghost Noise
Ghost Noise is a synthpop trio formed in 2012 in the San Fernando Valley. LA Weekly named them among "10 L.A. Artists to Watch in 2016". They are currently at work on their third full length album.
Second Still
Second Still
Second Still is a three piece post-punk/coldwave band from Los Angeles, CA. Combining the definitive sounds of French coldwave with the unconventional time signatures of No Wave, then layering that hybrid with hauntingly beautiful vocal melodies, Second Still crafts a sound soaked in nostalgia but also one that marches onwards towards the future. Infectious bass lines infiltrate your body and attack your senses. Guitar phrases glide in undulating melodic waves that peak into moments of formidable delay feedback. Heavyweight drum machine beats feel like punches to the gut. Combing the 80s underground for only the best of influences like Xmal Deutschland, Garlands-era Cocteau Twin, Asylum Party, and Opera De Nuit, Second Still invokes the classic wave of La Vague Froide as their sound washes over you. Smooth running water slowly freezes as the sun’s reflection is blocked by a sound that is decidedly Second Still’s own unique imprint.
Echolust
Echolust
It's been one of the more curious things about Los Angeles: Here, in the land of sun, sand and self-importance, a vital vein of post-punk music — and its shoegaze, darkwave and industrial variants — has always flowed freely. Echolust are among the latest to indulge in shadowy soundscapism. The Long Beach duo of Philip Obando and Armond Angeles this spring released a seven-song collection titled "Fourier Series" that sounds like it came from some gloomy U.K. city in the 1980s. Which is a good thing for fans of Joy Division, the Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen and inhabitants of that musical lineage. Obando handles the singing, guitar and synths here, Angeles the bass, and together they've nailed the foreboding but cathartic beauty of the music.
