Slime Girls: An eternal love letter to an ever fading summer, and the melancholy in its inevitable re-itterance.A discussion on beauty expressed through chaos, a frustration of identity, sorrow and joy. A rejection of words and all their inadequacies, through an embrace of melody and the catharsis of noise.A pop sensibility, met with virtual world emotion. Yet enough embarrassment to find speaking like this a little pretentious and silly. Never the less, Slime Girls is all of those things, but also a 4 piece experimental laptop-pop band based in Los Angeles who would appreciate it if you saw us play some music for you. Thank you, please wear earplugs and have a good day."and I begin to wonder, the dreams I can't remember, when I wake in the morning, where in the world did they go?"

River Gods (LA): Upon your first listen to River Gods, one thing is immediately clear: these people know their way around a hook. Shiraz Dhume, the band's bespectacled and unassuming frontman, has a way of navigating a song that manifests a deceptively listenable piece. It's easy to feel good after a River Gods song without realizing that you've heard Shiraz sing "I hope that I die before I'm old / tell the ones I love that I am terrible." But it can be hard to not feel like you want more of this self-abuse; the songs always last long enough to pique your interest but never long enough to leave them alone after just one listen. If River Gods wrote songs about anything else, they'd still be doing the job just fine. What makes the band so good, though, is that there is some real depth to what they create and pain inside to explore and relate to. But it's easy enough to ignore if you don't have it in you; the surface is glossy and the riffs are tight.

love under the sun (LA): Los Angeles based, Boston raised artist Love Under The Sun captures the sounds of the past and paints them on a modern canvas. The brainchild of John Michael Mukai, Love Under The Sun balances elements to . With influences ranging from Hum to Alanis Morissette, Deftones to Third Eye Blind, LUTS is loud and in-your-face but anthemic and catchy as all hell. He hits hard right before lulling you to sleep. The songs bite and sing with a calculated balance of catchy hooks, technical riffs, and mind-numbing rhythms that capture feelings of excitement, irreverence, and nostalgia.
