"Dead Dawn is an expression of our beautiful, horrible, colorful, crazy subteranean culture. China Morbosa is on vox, Abilene Fawn is on guitar, Gabriel Rebagliati is on bass, and Brandon Lloyd Burkart is on drums. Black & white future punk retro vibed thick rock."
There’s nothing quite like being in the desert. It is an inimitable feeling when the heavy heat of day submits to the piercing cold of night. The setting sun bruises the sky as it strikes the horizon and sinks, stripping the gilding from the sand and exposing the cold faces of the stars. High noon and the witching hour are equally captivating; both are unnerving, both are electrifying. Night condenses and expands and hundreds of unblinking eyes emerge, gaping.
The desert demands transformation. What thrives there is thorned. What survives slinks between shadows. To exist there is to withstand its vastness—an act of defiance. For thousands of years, it has tested us, summoned us to solitude to confront ourselves. Both Tim Foley and Kate Clover heeded this call. Beneath a storm-stained sky thick with anticipation, the former flames found themselves reunited. As lightning scarred the sand, they resolved to sonically sublimate its essence. Exsage emerged from the eye of this storm.
Exsage recorded their debut EP in Los Angeles with producer Alain Johnannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Mark Lanegan), which will be released worldwide in the spring of 2016.
A dark and noisy art-punk quartet were formed in late 2015 from the remnants of NE Los Angeles post-punk act Flaamingos.
Kristine Nevrose (vocals) and Jerry Narrows (guitar) called on friends Bianca Ayala (bass) and Colette Arenas (drums)
to complete the lineup influenced by Pylon, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Stooges, Make-Up.
Employing a brooding blend of nervy post-punk and beachy West Coast goth rock, Los Angeles-based Band Aparte is the brainchild of Brian Mendoza. Inspired by seminal underground bands like Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, Sonic Youth, and New Order, the band's clever pairing of gloomy darkwave and big pop hooks eventually landed them at L.A. indie label Manifesto Records.
With aesthetic roots in American gothic literature, post- punk, and 60's garage, Burning Palms are sweaty desert rats ready to eat you alive
