Golden Animals
Golden Animals
A 5-piece rock & roll band with soul. Not funky soul. Like pain and wisdom soul. Have you ever imagined a Bessie Smith / Strokes collaboration where Leonard Cohen was the principal songwriter? Maybe you shouldn't... Sorry about that. Let's make some avocado toast and forget this ever happened.

The Astronots
The Astronots
Formed by longtime friends Niko Giaimo and Allee Fütterer, THE ASTRONOTS had a vision of reintroducing the classic rock sound back into mainstream music with a modern twist. Fueled by a mutual interest in 70’s rock and roll, their contemporary neo-70’s rock sound is reminiscent of and rooted in blues rock, garage rock, and psychedelic rock.
Joy Downer
Joy Downer
Joy Downer is husband/wife duo Joy Bishop and Jeff Downer, originally from San Diego but now based in Los Angeles who are cooking up all manner of gorgeous indie-pop. Inspired by themes of duality; light and dark, man and woman, mind and matter which collide to set the backdrop of the sound. And on another matter of duality, the creative chemistry between the pair is such that, from the outside at least, ideas and songs seem to flow with an effortless ease. ‘Stranger Places’ has a decidedly easy and breezy feel, the gentle buoyancy of its bass grooves floating away to joyful hand claps and whirring synths are only anchored steady drums and groovy rhythms. Meanwhile, Bishop’s saccharine vocal would bring cheer to the most despondent among us, on the bluest day of all. It is a delicately balanced dynamic done with a hooky, shimmery, smile-inducing sounds. Latest single ‘Goddamnit’ is more impassioned and intimate with immaculate storytelling as a tale of broken hearts is recanted in a world that is slowly falling apart. The soft and aching vocals are imbued with a powerful sense of emotion while the instrumentation is superb; this pop song for the brokenhearted is buoyed by the flourishes of the horns. This pairs talent’s has served us with an irresistible and irrefutably infectious indie-pop – and long may that continue.
