ALLAH-LAS
ALLAH-LAS
Allah-Las met while working at the biggest of all the L.A. Record stores, but they became a band in an even more rare and special space—a California basement, dug out somewhere between the mountains and the beach. They began gigging shortly after their conception in and around Los Angeles in the later part of 2008. It wasn't until three years later that they would find the proper environment to record their first single "Long Journey" which now bookends their self-titled release. These were the kind of songs that bounced between London and Los Angeles, the kind of thing that could have come from Mick Jagger or Arthur Lee or both at once, with crystalline guitar and slow-mo drums that recalled the way the waves take big bites of the beach at night. This was mystery music from the strange and ancient-modern California fringe, more Night Tide than Easy Rider. Allah-Las were a reflection of a reflection, an echo of an echo, a band that was psychedelic not because of reverb or shredding through pedals but for the simple way their songs seem to extend to infinity.

WHITE LUNG
WHITE LUNG
White Lung are known for their furious yet melodic approach to punk. Since adding guitarist Kenneth William in 2009, Mish Way (vocals), Anne-Marie Vassiliou (drums) and Grady Mackintosh (bass) have received nothing but critical acclaim for their distinct brand of punk and their tight, live stage shows. White Lung’s debut LP It’s The Evil (Deranged Records) was Exclaim’s Punk Album Of The Year in 2010 and the band was nominated for Punk/Hardcore Artist/Group of the Year at the 2011 Canadian Music Week Indie Awards.

Their second LP Sorry (Deranged Records) was released spring 2012 and pushed the band to a wider audience, receiving critical acclaim from SPIN, Pitchfork, Bitch, E! Music. Sorry landed on “Top Albums of the Year” lists Exclaim!, Magnet, amongst others while Rolling Stone marked Sorry in their “Top 10 Albums Of The Year”. Sorry was also nominated as “Best Album Art of 2012? by NME and made the shortlist for “Best Album Art” by Art Vinyl in London. A vinyl exhibit was held worldwide from Japan to Britain to Sweden. The band has toured through out North America extensively and went through Europe and the UK Fall of 2012.
NU SENSAE
NU SENSAE
The two-piece, plays the kind of mindburning, primordial skronk with bludgeoning low-end jabs that can freak the ears of a whole city. Muscle and eeriness shoved in through Andrea's feverish growls and shrieks as she shreds through bass while Daniel's tribal death drumming gives a solid body to their music.
AUDACITY
AUDACITY
After nine years of existence, Fullerton quartet, Audacity, has left the garage of their humble 9th grade beginning, but the garage hasn’t left the spirit of their music. With two LPs, a slew of EPs, and no shortage of touring under their belts, Audacity are hardly a wet-behind-the-ears rock band. Their razor-sharp musicianship and high-energy performances were solid enough to earn them the privilege of serving as the backing band for both King Tuff and Todd Congelliere (Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland).

Audacity’s latest full-length Butter Knife out October 29 via Suicide Squeeze is still, at its core, a garage rock record. The economic instrumentation, grit-tinged guitar jangle, pogo-prompting tempos, and sing-along choruses can all be traced back to the seminal Nuggets collections. But ultimately, Butter Knife doesn’t sound so much like an homage to The Sonics as it sounds like a young band striving to make the most ebullient and jubilant noise possible. The new single, “Hole In The Sky” showcases the band’s gift for the on-the-dime changes, sophisticated melodies, and clever instrumental interplay.
WAX IDOLS
WAX IDOLS
Oakland's Wax Idols are born out of discontent and it lends itself to their style of punk. With high-pitched fuzzy vocals, heavily distorted guitars and staccato style beats, the attitude of irreverence comes through sure and strong. Lead singer-songwriter Heather Fedewa is the sole proprietor of this shop of tightly woven noise effects. After getting kicked out of several other Bay Area bands, she decided to start her own little project that would kick ass enough for her to maintain complete creative control. And with this control she has created her own little mischievous kingdom.
