Wages
Wages
LA-based indie rock band Wages have released their debut full-length, Glace. The 11-track full-length release has seen rave reviews from sources like FLOOD Magazine, Indie Shuffle, Atwood Magazine, Buzz Bands LA, PopMatters, All Things Go, and more. The band performs for the first time since the release at The Hi Hat on September 22nd.

Since its first EP release (Shady Chamber in 2013), the band has seen a slew of song placements in various network television shows – including CW’s The Flash, Syfy’s Being Human, various popular MTV shows, and several others. They also contributed to an original score for the highly regarded Sun Don’t Shine – the directorial debut of buzzing indie filmmaker Amy Seimetz – and developed sound art installations for respected experimental art galleries like Center for the Arts Eagle Rock and Machine Project. Glace is the follow up to 2015’s widely embraced EP Sacre Coer.
The Echo and The Sound
The Echo and The Sound
The Echo and the Sound is a two‐piece guitar and drums rock band based in Los Angeles, CA. Formed in 2012 as two parts of a complementary whole, fitting in nowhere else but together, these two East coast and Mid‐Atlantic country boys decided to create their own sub‐genre to live in. They call it "Gothic Cantina" and describe it best themselves as sounding like "if Bob Dylan and Sam Shepard got into a fist fight while drinking in a desert cantina."

Singer‐guitarist Brian Rich and drummer Douglas Jewell slather on the menace with heavy riffs and champagne cymbals to fill every bit of auditory space, providing the soundtrack to a 21st century post‐apocalyptic nuclear warfare. It's the sound of dark and broody rock 'n' roll punctuated by punk rock overtones with blues‐folk and country undertones. Said to be "one of the most promising up‐and‐coming bands in L.A." (Music Connection), creating a blistering tarantino-esque collection impossible to resist, full of hip-shaking, foot stomping, good ole' fashioned rock n' roll.
Grand Bain
Grand Bain
GRAND BAIN are an electronic rock duo from Paris, France whose music is “beautiful, at times wonderfully calming and at others deeply intense, like an ocean in a dream” (From The Inside).

Founded in Paris in 2013, and based out of Los Angeles, the group - comprised of American singer/songwriter Erica von Trapp and French multi-instrumentalist/producer Jules de Gasperis - combines dreamy pop vocals, pulsing rhythms, effected guitars, and melancholic synthesizers in a sound that “reminds of MS MR and CHVRCHES, yet updated, edgy and contemporary.” (IndieBeatMusic).

The two originally met when de Gasperis asked von Trapp to join a New Wave project he was working on in Paris. Upon the group’s breakup they started GRAND BAIN to continue making music together (the name “Grand Bain” translates to “deep end” in French, and was born mid-lap swimming in one of Paris’s municipal pools.)

GRAND BAIN’s debut EP No Country was recorded in studio in Paris and the south of France, and is a profound exploration of human sadness, spirituality, and self-reflection. After touring France, Berlin, and New York, the duo relocated to Los Angeles in 2016 where they recorded the music video for their 2-track single “The French Diaries”. The band is currently touring the West Coast and recording their debut LP in their Los Angeles studio.
