If you like Laurel Canyon music that sounds like it's been splashing around in the pool for a bit on a hot summer day, Drug Cabin's acoustic songs and their hint of sun-dappled, psychedelic pop may be just what you need. The duo comprised of Nathan Thelen (of Pretty Girls Make Graves and Moonrats) and Marcus Congleton (of Ambulance LTD) are preparing to release their debut self-titled EP on June 19 via 401K Music. They've had some help, too. Recorded in Josh Klinghoffer's studio and produced by former Pretty Girls Make Graves bandmate Nick Dewitt (Liars), the EP has spawned songs that range from the lilting "One I Love" and "On the Mountain" to the light-hearted "Whatever Never." The latest single from Drug Cabin is far from any post-punk in their past repertoire, but it's bass-heavy and woozy enough to get lost in. Now both based in L.A., Drug Cabin's live band is fleshed out with Warpaint's Stella Mozgawa on drums and Brendon Owens on bass. - Buzz Bands LA
Plvs Vltra is the new project from Toko Yasuda. She is best known for her work in the band Enon, and is currently playing a moog synthesizer touring with St.Vincent.
Yasuda now resides in a Los Angeles hilltop, where the chameleon sunsets are the endless muse in her very own brand of California sound.
Anna Oxygen is the stage name of an American musician and actress from in and around Olympia, Washington, Anna Jordan Huff.
After graduating from The Evergreen State College with a music degree, Huff began her musical career in the late 1990s with the novelty synth-pop group the Space Ballerinas. The group released two EPs on Yoyo Records entitled "Diamonds" and "If Goth Was Pink" and opened a show for Peaches before disbanding in 2001.
Huff's solo career started in 2002 after she moved from Olympia to Seattle. She recorded All Your Faded Things with producer Justin Trosper, which was released on Cold Crush Records in 2003. Huff then went on tour before releasing her second album This Is an Exercise on the Kill Rock Stars label in 2006.
She has also appeared on recordings by The Microphones.
Her albums have featured guest vocalists Beth Ditto, Mirah, and Kitty Jenson.
Her feature film debut was the 2005 film Police Beat directed by Robinson Devor.
Huff is also a member of Cloud-Eye Control, a performance art group which also consists of Miwa Matreyek, and Chi-wang Yang. The group has recently completed and performed a piece entitled "Under Polaris," performed in Portland, OR and hosted by the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA).
Huff currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
