Winter is the dream pop/shoegaze LA quartet formed in 2013 by Samira Winter(vocals/guitar), Matt Hogan (guitar), David Broyles (bass) and Garren Orr(drums). Their first full length "Supreme Blue Dream" was released via Lolipop Records March 2015.
Lionel Williams (aka Vinyl Williams) is a Los Angeles based artist and musician. His collage art & psyche-pop music fuses vast landscapes, multi-religious symbolism, and the supernatural into a paradoxical whirlpool of "mysticism and sonic matrices".
Created and performed solely by songwriter, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Williams, debut album Lemniscate was released in November 2012. On the surface the record is a flood of ideas and imagery, dashing psyched-out space-rock with layers of kraut and shoegaze.
Lead singles 'Higher Worlds' and 'Stellarscope' are muscular, transcendental-pop tracks led by frazzled melodies and driving rhythm sections. Digging deeper into Williams' world, album centerpiece 'Inner Space' and closer 'Follow In Your Dreams' reveal more intangible, ethereal qualities; the sound of a restless creative interweaving concepts to conjure a truly unique and intuitive experience.
This amorphous sensation is a constant across Williams' mediums. The 22 year old has also exhibited his similarly surreal art across New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Seoul. Recent support slots include: METZ, Django Django, The Soft Machine, Toro Y Moi.
