PANTHAR debut new single "Ghost Rocket"

The 80’s called, they said they wanted their music back. We said no. Shelina Louise, of PANTHAR, has been gradually establishing her name in the streets of L.A. with the collaboration of Allison Wolfe. After hitting the studio with Mark Raines of BRMC, Summer Twins and Gothic Tropic, the duo has been able to craft a poppy, classic 80’s sound. Releasing their newest single, “Ghost Rocket”, on February 17th, Louise and Wolfe take listeners back to The Breakfast Club, sliding through the halls with Judd Nelson and Emillio Estevez as retro, space age, and punk-rock comes alive. Guitar riffs, dreamy electric jams and artful lyrics mash up to capture their vintage analog debut. PANTHARS is a “dreamy feedback-induced coma” that will have you zoning out of your reality and right into the 80’s punk era. - Kayla Hay

Stream: BREAKFAST, "Boris"

Who is Boris, exactly? According to downtempo synth pop four piece BREAKFAST, he's the leecher who abuses of his high posotion without any real inslight into the concept of artistry. A mentor with experience, sure, but one who's misguided and thinks about the big picture without considering a true artist's essence. It comes on the heels of their previous single "Diane", a smiliar chracter study that follows the band's knack for dubby, texture-rich modular synthesizers. I wonder what character they'll think of next.

Gal Pals take their Garage Pop from Austin to LA + play SXSW

LA just got a big ole gift from the city of Austin, Texas, as rocker pair Gal Pals has made the big jump further west. Gal Pals makes stripped-down, up-energy summer pop that’s a good bit garage, and also a good bit of bubblegum and fun. Y’get the feeling listening to their music that these two ladies moved to Cali just to put their music in the right setting, which is undoubtedly a beach party in the warm day, with the Gal Pals’ lazer-bright clothes and sunglasses standing out against the blue sky as they blast out their guitar-and-drums-and-nothin’-else pop music. The band will be playing official shows at SXSW this coming March.

Gal Pals Comes to California

LA just got a big ole gift from the city of Austin, Texas, as rocker pair Gal Pals has made the big jump further west. Gal Pals makes stripped-down, up-energy summer pop that’s a good bit punk, and also a good bit of bubblegum and fun. Y’get the feeling listening to their shit that these two ladies moved to California just to put their music in the right setting, which is undoubtedly a beach party in the warm day, the Gal Pals’ lazer-bright clothes and sunglasses standing out against the blue sky as they blast out their guitar-and-drums-and-nothin’-else pop music. Give that track a listen below, and dance 'til summer can't help but get its ass back here.

Artist to Watch: Bouquet

Songwriting duo Bouquet treat ecomony as an asset and not an opportunity. The elemental intimacy of their mute soundscapes always seems like it's on the verge of breaking free, as if you're expecting that grand moment to arrive at any moment. It never does. There's a gothic edge to the duo's chilly, patient instrumentation, with singer Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs's callous vocals tethered to Max Foreman's gauzy, metronomic vintage synths. Their latest EP, In a Dream, is quiet and impalpable, conscious of its calculated makeup though willing to be found if you accept its cold embrace. It has a release date of March 10 via Ulrike/Folktale Records, and make sure to catch them performing an in-store at Origami Vinyl on March 8.
