COSMONAUTS
COSMONAUTS
Cosmonauts came into being in 2009 in outer space or Orange County, depending on the way you like to look at things. The band was originally formed by Derek Cowart and Alexander Ahmadi after he heard Cowart play a Spaceman3 song solo at a show in their home town of Fullerton, CA. The two were students at different high schools but as it turned out, of the same musical school of thought: two lovers of lo-fi, adorers of the atmospheric, kindred pop-loving spirits. The two bonded over the Velvet Underground and Brian Jonestown Massacre, and quickly turned their mutual appreciation club into a band. Cosmonauts have been making music ever since, picking up bassist James Sanderson and a host of different drummers along the way (the spot is currently filled by Mark Morones). Now residing in Los Angeles, they’ve put out a number of releases (including three full length albums) through Burger Records and various other labels. They’ve toured extensively through the US and Europe, and played alongside Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Pixies, Slowdive, Black Lips, Belle & Sebastian, and more, though Cosmonauts don’t exactly fit neatly into the fabric of their scene: too psychedelic to be punk, too punk to be psychedelic, and too absorbed in making their own brand of music to care. Their latest offering, A-OK!, is out August 19th via Burger Records.
EL SONIDA DE REPOSA
EL SONIDA DE REPOSA
While most bands reference other bands as their primary influences, El Sonida De Reposa draws much of it's inspiration from tv and film music: Ennio Morricone's Western scores, Goblin's scores for Dario Argento and of course Angelo Badalamenti's work with David Lynch.

El Sonida De Reposa just released "Pink Room - Just You" a 12" 45 rpm single featuring covers of two songs from the Twin Peaks: "Pink Room" (from Fire Walk With Me) and "Just You" (from Twin Peaks Season 2). The Vinyl release includes a download of both tracks, plus a third bonus track (also from "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me).
