The Tijuana Panthers play punked up barbershop surf pop with the just the right amount or reverb.
Duo Patricia Hall and Ian Hicks (LA via Portland) are Soft Metals. Their moody, stargazing sound is a product of their love for 70s and 80s synth music, ranging from early industrial, minimal synth, house, techno, synth pop, krautrock, psychedelic rock and shoegaze.
LA Vampires is the solo project of Amanda Brown, a hazy spaced-out goth pop, with nods to the production style of DJ Screw.
LA's Pangea play scuzzed out guitar pop echolalia with layered vocal harmonies à la Wavves.
The Soft Pack are known for that kind of melodic but muscular back yard punk pop that, if you could roll it up in your shirt sleeve, would make you feel like a total badass with a heart of gold, of course.
HOTT MT describe their sound as Thai Gaze influenced by Tom Kha Gai. Their through-cotton-balls sound is something like immersion in a silky coconut milk sea. Which may be why their surprise visit to Flaming Lips founder Wayne Coyne's OKC compound paid off with collaborations on "2012 (You Must Be Upgraded)" and "I'll Never Hate Again."
HEALTH recently put their densely atmospheric blend of guitar fuzz and space doom synth over frantic rhythm in service of virtual massacre vehicle Max Payne 3, an odd partnership that highlights their ability to turn a set of constraints to their decided advantage. Let's hope they find new and more challenging cages to create their ways out of.
