P L a N E T S
The band underneath your bed, P L a N E T S, are a tricksy bunch. From their 4D performances smashed full of choreo-punk witch dancers, ghostly beasts and shadowy puppetry, to their haunted trip of a debut album; this band born in the woods and raised in Alhambra, CA smolders and burns.
Vibrating along with modern day musical auteurs such as Fever Ray and echoing ambitious rock acts like The Who, while drawing inspiration from the twisty television dramas Twin Peaks and The Twilight Zone, P L a N E T S will tangle you up in some sort of war dance in the woods where nothing is sacred except sweat, blood and the pursuit of darkness.
"Live, the 20 or so members make darkly compelling psych rock reminiscent of 'Red Right Hand'-era Nick Cave." --LA WEEKLY
“The garage band rowdiness of Iggy Pop or The Ramones with the theatricality of early Genesis, when Peter Gabriel fronted the band costumed as Magog or The Slipperman.” --EXAMINER
“P L a N E T S comprehensive and astounding number of artistic mediums created a show to enthrall all the senses. From 'Thriller'-esque dancers crawling up on the stage to dramatic werewolf theatrics, they put on the show of the night.” -KSPC
Alpha/Beta (feat. Brett Anderson of The Donnas)
Alpha/Beta is the singing and songwriting team of Brett Anderson (The Donnas, The Stripminers), and Asa Ferry (Kind Hearts and Coronets, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti). Brett and Asa met earlier this year at Zorthian Ranch and decided to start their own cult. They wrote and recorded their Debut album, Fencing the Sparrows (Due out soon) in just three short months and are already working on songs for their next album. Here is a link to some songs from the album: https://soundcloud.com/asaspades-1
The first guitar I ever owned was in Tokyo, from an ex-pat couple that was moving from our small town of Tamabochi. I did not have a clue how to play, so it was resorted to a prop, as I sang along to Sugar Ray & Oasis on Air Force radio. Since then, music has been an evergrowing relationship, and it gives me more than I could ever fully express.
