There's somewhat of a paradox inherent in Vundabar's songwriting - a conflicting sense of nostalgia contrasted with the realization that they couldn't sound more current. The music they make feels like something that should have been heard a long time ago, while simultaneously continuing to forge ahead sonically. Vundabar's high energy live show is the stand out quality of this band and is an art they’ve undoubtedly perfected by touring non-stop around the country. Vundabar’s shows never fail to be captivating, complete with infectious jams, guitar moves galore, intricate drum work, and humorous stage banter to top it all off, the band has become known for putting on an entertaining show.
Illuminati Hotties
Illuminati Hotties
Despite the pluralized nom de guerre, illuminati hotties is the creative outlet of Sarah Tudzin - a producer, engineer, and burrito aficionado hailing from the sprawl of Los Angeles. Armed with bright white shortveralls and a rotating line-up of Sarah's bffs, illuminati hotties has been lighting up stages across SoCal since Fall 2016 with playfully interweaving guitar lines, relentless rhythmic momentum, and strikingly self-aware vocals. Lauded as local "tenderpunk pioneers," illuminati hotties has perfected the blend of sweetness and erocity, of celebration and despondency, in their debut album, Kiss Yr Frenemies, soon to be released on Tiny Engines. At first listen, illuminati hotties is a sun-drenched, irreverent volley with the onset of adulthood, but as the listener dives deeper, they will find an earnest consideration of musical phrasing and deliberately crafted wordplay regarding the complexity of love, loss, and skateboarding. Illuminati hotties' live show challenges audiences to bring their deepest feels and fiercest moves to the floor, and has elicited comparisons to Best Coast, Angel Olsen, Courtney Barnett, and Alvvays. Illuminati hotties latest singles have received recognition from various online music sources including NPR Music, The FADER, and Stereogum. Previously, their lead single and music video "(You're Better) Than Ever" was featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds playlist and Indie Shuffle's Best New Music. illuminati hotties is looking forward to touring this summer in support of their new LP and sharing their best Los Angeles taco spot recommendations with the world.
Wieuca
Wieuca
“An adventurous version of indie rock, taking you on a journey.” -Chris DeVille, Stereogum

“Lyrically rich, poignant indie rock with a psychedelic edge, […] a vibrant, inquisitive take on rock and roll that challenges genre.” -Russell Rockwell, Immersive Atlanta

“Since forming way back in 2012, local foursome Wieuca has evolved from a messy, Pavement-aping slack-rock outfit to one of the coolest and most cohesive bands in town. Blending catchy vocal melodies with half-drunk guitar interplay and razor-sharp rhythms à la Parquet Courts, the group also flirts with anthemic Southern rock and jammy psychedelia. There’s also a healthy dose of irony to keep things fun.” -Gabe Vodicka, Flagpole Magazine

Wieuca’s sound has always been eclectic, even unfocused. What began in 2012 as an emotional alt-country outfit has gone through iterations of psychedelia, garage punk, shoegaze, southern rock, etc…disparate, but all under the general indie rock umbrella. With Local Celebrity, Wieuca incorporates more hip hop influences, pushing far outside the bounds of rock while retaining its esoteric core: psychedelic homespun recordings, confessional lyrics, and the earnest twang of a long day’s work. This is folk art in a post-J Dilla world.
