Young Creatures

- TV place on ABC Family's hit show, Stitchers
- Writeups in prominent publications in the U.S. and Europe including Classic Rock Magazine, LA Weekly, and Buzzbands LA.
- Live sessions at Daytrotter, Converse Rubber Tracks, Jam In The Van, and Balcony TV.
- Five (5) showcases at SXSW '15
- Repeated FM college radio airplay
- Performances at LA's hottest venues including The Echo, Bardot, The Satellite, and The Viper Room
- Relentless touring of the West Coast, Pacific Northwest, Southeastern U.S., Texas, and the Northeast

Young Creatures is currently writing material for the follow-up to Fear All The Things. Young Creatures is Mike Post (vocals/guitar), Andrew Gleason (guitar/vocals), Spencer King (bass), and Michael Escalante (drums).
The Blank Tapes
The Blank Tapes
THE BLANK TAPES is the moniker of Los Angeles based multi-instrumentalist, Matt Adams, who has produced over a dozen albums of 1960’s inspired folk-rock-surf-psych-soul-pop on Volcom, Burger Records, Antenna Farm, and others. Their new album “Candy” was produced by Eric D Johnson at his home studio in Portland, OR featuring bandmates Will Halsey of “Sugar Candy Mountain” & Veronica Bianqui as well as EDJ. The Blank Tapes have toured throughout America, Canada, Brazil, UK, Europe, & Japan. Matt is also the artist behind his band’s posters & album covers.
Bloodboy
Bloodboy
Bloodboy. The name may sound like a villain’s sidekick, though the protagonist and brains behind the LA-based project, Lexie Papilion, is everything but. Papilion’s punk-infused pop rests upon her striking, powerful vocals and often unpredictable stage presence. At once intimate and commanding, Papilion's music leaves you with the feeling that she’s not just here to save you—she’s here to save herself. Little more than a year after the release of her debut EP, which earned her a spot on Consequence of Sound's Five Rising L.A. Artists You Need To Hear, Papilion is preparing to release her debut LP, Punk Adjacent. Acting on her desire to escape the insanity of Los Angeles, Papilion retreated to a small cabin in rural Louisiana to find inspiration for the new record. While there, she frequented local venues and reveled in the energy of native zydeco bands. Her biggest inspiration from the trip, however, came from watching “Golden Era” television shows. “I fell in love Gilligan’s Island,” she laughs. “The aesthetic and the score, which is some of John Williams’ earliest work, are amazing. It inspired a more cinematic element than I’ve explored in the past.”  After returning to Los Angeles with enough new material for “three full-length records,” Papilion enlisted producer Taylor Locke (The New Pornographers, Linda Thompson) to help bring the songs to fruition. As the name suggests, the resulting Punk Adjacent is an exhilarating record that would not have felt out of place at 1970s-era CBGB. Sparkling guitars, complex arrangements and Papilion’s signature soaring vocals compliment her unique ability to explore taboo themes in a way that feels simultaneously tongue-in-cheek and sincere. This new chapter sees Papilion continuing to push the boundaries of pop-rock music into exciting, uncharted territory. If it wasn’t obvious already, Bloodboy isn’t going anywhere.
