Watch & Listen
Summer Twins are sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown. They write dreampop and rock ‘n roll songs with a touch of California sun. Born and raised in Riverside, Ca, the two decided they wanted to start a band from a young age. Inspired by their dad’s old rock ‘n roll records, Chelsea picked up the guitar, Justine taught herself to play drums, and they played in an all-girl band throughout their teens. They formed Summer Twins in 2008, with a focus on singing pop harmonies atop garage rock inspired by the ’50s and ’60s. Now in their early twenties, Summer Twins play live with Alan Olney on guitar and Michael Rey Villavicencio on bass.
"Each repeat listen to the California dream-pop duo’s lazy, hazy, crazy debut adds another layer of shimmering, pink pleasure. Sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown quickly start to sound like a band you’ve had in your collection for years – and it’s more than simple 90s nostalgia for a brand of pop ala The Cardigans that the Summer Twins wholly embrace." -Impose Magazine
"Just some damn sunny pop with a nice dusting of melancholy that begs to be on your headphones and walked around the city." -Raven Sings the Blues
"...a sound that is both nostalgic and timeless" - Get Bent
Michael Rey & The Woebegone's
Michael Rey and the Woebegones are a four piece Rock n Roll band, formed in 2010, based out of Fontana Ca. Their influence range from the sounds of the Mississippi delta to gritty tinge of CBGB. The band is Fronted by singer/songwriter Michael Rey, and consists of Justine Brown on bass, Rob Rozema on organ, and Daniel Flores on drums.
Heroes & Heroines
Echoes of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, The Association and a youth spent listening to oldies in the backseat bounce off of animated garage rock in L.A.'s Heroes & Heroines. Cousins Tony Infante (organ, lead vocals) and Nick Gil (guitar) together with friends Alex Faciane (bass) and Gabe Diaz (drums) grew up in the South Bay, home to musical legends from The Beach Boys to Black Flag. Appropria
tely, a combination of harmonic pop and rock propulsion drives Heroes & Heroines' infectious songs.
The sunny L.A. sound of the Heroes & Heroines comes to fruition with the band's "Two Weeks" seven-inch single, recorded at The Distillery (The Black Lips, The Strange Boys) in Costa Mesa on analog tape and mastered straight to vinyl. On "Two Weeks" the band surfs a Farfisa organ through a cathedralesque vocal breakdown, radiating timeless rock 'n' roll vibes over a jump-out-of-your-seat beat. Its B-side, "Busy Bee," is no less revelatory, building slowly from a doo-wop vocal and two-chord stomp to a garage-rock explosion of noise and color. Heroes & Heroines capture the feeling of cruising down PCH, listening to your favorite tunes without a care in the world about work, your ex or anything but good times.
"Heroes & Heroines navigate nostalgia while remaining creatively current. Channeling recent heroes Thee Makeout Party but reaching back as far as those pre-British Invasion American party poppers the Rivieras, Heroes & Heroines is here to stay—so they can make all your Spring Break dreams come true!" — LA Record
"Delicate vocals are paired with the clean and polished complexion of this easily accessible pop music, making for a delectable and innocent sound that is overwhelmingly charming. … It's not a surprise to be totally floored by this incomparable bliss, so go with the flow and see where it takes you." — The Styrofoam Drone
"Saw their 45 at the record store last week. No girls in the band, so I don't know where they're getting the 'Heroines' part, but it's a pretty good song. Sounds like an oldie. Think I'll pick it up." – Buzzbands.LA
