Beer Soaked Bloody Nose Broken Heart...this is what LA’s NO WIN does best. The solo project of Musician/Producer/Engineer Danny Nogueiras, is rife with honesty, distortion and great f*#king songs! With a little help from his friends Max Keuhn (FIDLAR) Brandon Schwartzel (FIDLAR) Marshall Vore (Ryan Adams, Phoebe Bridgers) and David Jerkovich (Kind of Like Spitting) NO WIN’s 2 new singles “Crooked Heart” and “You’ll Be Fine”out March via Dangerbird keeps us up to speed with, and wanting more of NO WIN’s straight up, unapologetic brand of rock and roll. Just imagine if The Replacements got into a bar fight with Teenage Fanclub and somehow Superchunk ends up with the black eye...That’s NO WIN.
People Flavor is a four-piece rock band from Montebello, California. While new on the scene, the band can trace its genesis back to a teenaged solo project dreamt up by frontman Fernando Andrade, along with best bro Byron Turner joining the process soon after. The pair then recruited high school cronies Giovanni Padilla and Andrew Valdez, to become the collaborative effort they are today. Since rounding out the lineup in 2015, People Flavor have been busy playing shows at house parties, DIY venues and some of Los Angeles’ most notable musical mainstays such as The Bootleg Theater, CIA, and Los Globos. Continually crafted through the writing and recording process, their distinct sound incorporates jazz chords with post and dance-punk elements, delivering it all with 80’s new wave sensibility. The boys are heavily influenced by slinky Spanish rock and the refined cool of British tunes, evoking a likeness to both an Hispanic Duran Duran and early Radiohead. Contrasting with their dance-inducing grooves, the lyrics tend to focus on the more melancholic aspects of life and love, magically manipulating you into feeling good about being sad. Ultimately, People Flavor is a sonic experiment in self-expression geared towards finding yourself in others and finding the others in yourself. The band’s first release comes via Dangerbird’s Microdose (a monthly singles release and live event series). People Flavor’s infectious “Shake Well”out February 10th, with a corresponding performance and party at Dangerbird HQ in Silver Lake, February 16th.
Rufrano is a singer-songwriter based out of Long Beach, California. Not one to be put in a box, her songs range from the somber to the impish and the eccentric. Her encyclopedic knowledge of music has her garnering comparisons to Elvis Costello and Joni Mitchell with raw bedroom pop tonality. Rufrano's debut singles are set to be released beginning in the Summer of 2017.
