222 play at Hotel Cafe tonight

If you're looking for tunes worthy of soundtracking only the coolest Halloween party (obviously, the one at *your* house), 222 has got you covered. This electro-dance rock duo released their self-produced debut album, Libretto, earlier this year. They also recently put out an eerie music video for their single One Night Stand, which stars singer/guitarist Jade Howard as a stylish femme fatale, getting back at a date (played by drummer Dennis Hamlin) who has become a bit too attached.

If you're eager to start the holiday early, 222 are playing at the Hotel Cafe tonight at 9 pm. On Halloween, they're releasing an early version of a new music video to their mailing list subscribers. It's for their song "Headcake", and it looks like the band is aiming to up the creepy-factor this time around. - Brittany Scheffler


Felte label party at Non Plus Ultra tonight with Sextile, The Tissues, Romy

Felte Records hosts a show tonight at the Non Plus Ultra, with a disparate lineup to welcome the darkest part of the year. Melbourne's new romantic punk Romy (A G E N D E R) shares new music from her eponymous project. With a debut EP around the corner, new shuffler The Tissues wipes Los Angeles again, and upstart occultists Sextile will raise the night — stream their debut album One Thousand Hands below. Brooklyn's Lushes, of the original show lineup, was called to support Kurt Vile before their Europe tour. Label owner Jeff Owens and Lucifersam spin songs at 9. $5 at the door. - Ryan Mo

William Alexander charms with his homebrew psychedelia

William Alexander offers just the right amount of strange on his latest single "Strangest Things", a breezy, psychedelic track about falling madly in love that settles into a firm groove with its funky, swaggering backbeat. The Long Beach singer/songwriter will relese his debut full length, entitled Strangest Things, on November 6th via Yellow K Records. 


Stream: Travelers, "My Fault"

Like an abandoned shack by the seaside, Travelers' new song "My Fault" contains a multitude of ghosts. Not the threatening kind, but the ones that wisp by on a breeze, leaving you to wonder if you had actually felt anything in the first place. Something seems just out of reach, as harmonies fade over and around the core melody, on which the vocalist croons, "I thought I felt you breathe, but I lost it."

The band consists of members Bret Leinen, Aidin Sadeghi, Eric Cannata and Francois Comtois, with Cannata and Comtois also involved in the popular indie rock band Young The Giant, and Leinen and Sadeghi coming from former OC folk outfit Strange Birds. Saying Travelers sounds like a mix of these two bands would not be inaccurate, but we'll let them define their sound for themselves - they purportedly have an entire album under their belt, with more songs to be released in the coming weeks. - Brittany Scheffler 


Jazzercising to Gateway Drugs: "Anu" music video released

Los Angeles' narcotic siblings Gateway Drugs threw out a music video for their 2015 long-play Magick Spells opener "Anu", the garage-surf invigorator for your calisthenics and jazzercise regimens. Free yourself from the couch-lock and work up a sweat to this VHS magic. - Ryan Mo
