Iris Jupiter releases debut LP, play VLHS on 1/14

Iris Jupiter is a fuzz rock trio out of Orange County whose mostly informed by nineties American guitar bands with some post-hardcore influences. Signed to Open Door Records, a label you should keep on your radar, the band writes feedback-friendly fuzz rock with tense, anguished confessionals that balance noise with melody. If you've been seeking some modern alt rock that embraces the pedal trickery of Smashing Pumpkins-era Siamese Dream with some fleeting shoegaze tones, but with a lead singer that sounds closer to early days Roddy Woomble (if you're of a certain age, there's a good chance you have fond memories of Idlewild's Hope Is Important), then they deliver a dense, textural brew of riffs that emit both a potent and vulnerable aura.

Iris Jupiter are set to release their self-titled debut on January 13th, followed by a record release show the day after at VLHS in Pomona. Juan Rodríguez



BOYTOY announces 7" and new LP, plays Baby's All Right on 01.09

BOYTOY from NYC float somewhere between 60s surf jams and 90s grunge rock. Glenn Van Dyke and Saara Untracht-Oakner founded the band in 2013 with two guitars and drums, soon realizing bass wasn't necessary. They craft catchy, fuzzy, rock nuggets that create dreamy summer vibes all year round and have been regularly apperaing in the quality small venues around New York City and LA. BOYTOY just finished their first European and Puerto Rican tours with their current line-up including Chase Noelle on drums (formerly of Thelma And The Sleeze) and Lena Simon on bass (La Luz). With a 7” and single split 7” coming out in January, the four band members continue their migratory tradition to Los Angeles this winter including a Southern, West Coast and Northern tour of the U.S.. BOYTOY plans to record their sophomore full length in LA in March 2017. You can see them live at Baby's All Right on 01.09

Post-punk trio REXX releases new EP "To Communicate"

Post-punk trio REXX once again fulfill their adventurous streak with their latest EP "To Communicate", a unique collision of punk and funk fusion that epitomizes their frantic eclecticism and twisted melodic approach. Led by Rex Osterkamp, the five track EP seamlessly coheres rasping guitar leads with funky bass lines that, at their most urgent, recall the short-lived days of tropical punk. But Osterkamp takes on different musical styles, and not once is he disloyal to delivering a well-sequenced effort that honors the blistering brevity of punk rock. Juan Rodríguez




darkDARK release new single "Fake It"

Heavy synth mash ups melt into the whitewashed drum machine to create the futuristic sound of darkDark. Genevieve Vincent and Chris James together create a visionary way to feel the music you listen to, casting a spell on your inner demons with every beat. I’m happy to announce that Netflix original series “Stranger Things” just found its season two song opener; at least my vote is cast. Kayla Hay





Old Notes play at dba256 on 12/30

Indie rock band Old Notes released their debut full-length earlier this year, Former Self, a poignantly rendered illustration of young malaise that's calibrated with heart-wrenching musical peaks and troughs. The Rancho Cucamonga trio are greatly informed by the Midwestern emo movement of the late nineties that continues to make a big impact in the current indie rock scene. The trio addresses their impassioned yearning with circular guitar lines and lilting melodic fragments that oftentimes erupt with melodic bursts of genuine clarity. 

Old Notes will be playing at deba256 in Pomona on December 30th. Juan Rodríguez
