Brian Hill & The Noh Starrs
Upon graduating high school at age 15, Brian Hill moved to New York City in an attempt to obtain a philosophy degree. He quickly discovered the city's quintessential magnetism, that yielded him away from his books and into the night clubs, concert venues, and art spaces. Before the end of his freshman year, Brian dropped out of school, and formed a band. Hill had already proved himself as an active member of the New York scene -
playing guitar on tour for Chairlift and Tamaryn - when he met the gaze-rockers of Froth at a show in Los Angeles. The band's cover of a Brian Eno song sparked a friendship between Brian and lead singer Joo Joo Asheworth, who promptly offered him to crash in his spare room in L.A. The pair began sharing their respective demos with each other, which spurred their collaboration
on what would become Brian's debut album 'And The Noh Starrs.'
'And The Noh Starrs' is Brian Hill's love/hate letter to New York, an exploration of his life and experiences in the city, and the anguish of having to leave it to love it. In his songs, he writes about his experiences surviving his first few years in the
city, the surreality of New York City life, and the intriguing characters he met along the way both in New York and while traveling around the world: a stalker, a friend named Sarah, and the city itself as a living entity. The songs on the record
appear manic at times, and meditative at others, not unlike the way New York City makes him feel.
On the full length are featured Joo Joo Asheworth (Froth) and his sister Sasami (Cherry Glazerr), Laena Geronimo (Feels), and Tomas Dolas (Mr. Elevator), who produced the record. The band weaves Hill's candid lyrics into a sound that lives in
the realms of glam, no-wave, and rock and roll.
Based in Los Angeles - New Men is comprised of Sienna Scarritt (vocals) and Eddie Wuebben (of Sextile) on guitar and synth. They formed out of a whirlwind of synchronistic happenings this spring and played their debut show with friends in Los Angeles on 4/20. Their first EP, recorded in May, includes post punk sounds and synth pop elements.
Gold Cage is an East Los Angeles based two-piece post-punk outfit consisting of singer/bassist Monica Gamboa-Katz, and singer/guitarist Cole Devine. The two began collaborating in May 2017 with the aspiration of combining their artistic sensibilities to foster a dark etherial, sonically-mature post-punk duo. Offering smooth-driving bass tempos, with catchy guitar loops and riffs, Gold Cage is sure to warm your heart with fog, and clouds.
