02.28: Split Moon put out intense new record "Slow Satellite"

Those with a vested interest in LA's shoegaze community shouldn't sleep on Split Moon, who will release their newest album Slow Satellite on February 28th. The project of singer and guitarist Mark Starr, this rebirth of the band LEAF creates music that sounds like a whole symphony; the wailing of Starr's guitar layers over and over upon itself, washing you with waves of trance-inducing sound. The group's first single from Slow Satellite, "Shades", has the post-punk elements of Joy Division and the shoegaze bliss of My Bloody Valentine and Swervedriver; take a listen to it below. - Will Sisskind

   

01.23: CAPYAC bring the funk and new single to Moroccan Lounge

CAPYAC bring the party wherever they perform, so catch them livening up your Thursday night at Moroccan Lounge on January 23rd. The show precedes the release of the electro-funk duo's upcoming single "Dirty", which drops on January 31st. With festival performances and upcoming shows planned for Paris, Berlin, London, Copenhagen, Tijuana, Costa Mesa, and more, 2020 looks to keep CAPYAC busy electrifying crowds with their surreal dance and music act, during which anything can happen (including surprise pancakes, puppets, or impromptu improvisations which disappear into memory as soon as they're done). If you want to see what tricks CAPYAC have up their sleeve this year, catch them on January 23rd at Moroccan Lounge. First, check out their latest video, done for a collaboration with songwriter Annabelle Maginnis called "Little Toes". - Will Sisskind

 

   

Irene Diaz navigates lost love on new single "Another Observer"

Irene Diaz returns after a long hiatus with her new single "Another Observer", a cut from her upcoming full-length Lovers & Friends, out later this year. In "Another Observer", the alt-pop singer-songwriter navigates lost love using her soulful voice and mournful arrangements. This slow jam comes with a music video depicting Diaz working through her grief in text message format as she sits in her car overlooking the California dusk. With moody and electronic textures on top of Diaz's rich voice, "Another Observer" is just a taste of what's to come later this year on Lovers & Friends; take a look at the video for the track now. - Will Sisskind

   

01.24: Trends paint dream pop picture with show at The Roar Room

On January 24th, dream pop quartet Trends will mark the release of their debut album Palettes with a colorful show at The Roar Room. Trends has grown from lead vocalist Marina Paiz's lo-fi solo project to a four-piece indie powerhouse, creating songs that expand from soft and introspective musings to rapid-fire proclamations in both sound and verse. Palettes has the band processing life's complex moments through song; on tracks like "Ampersand" and "Blanket Party", Trends explore grief and missed opportunity, as well as what we do to cope and make our own way through our lives. Take a look at the music video for "Branches", a single from Palettes, below. - Will Sisskind
