The Happy Hollows
In the past year, Sarah Negahdari, the singer, guitarist, and chief songwriter of Los Angeles art-rock trio The Happy Hollows, has caused quite a commotion in the music world. Wired Magazine called her "one of the coolest women in rock," Pitchfork wrote that her voice "commands attention on both the stompers and serenades," and The Huffington Post branded her a "rock goddess." Sarah lived in NYC from 2003-2006 after which she moved to Los Angeles - needless to say we're looking forward to her homecoming! The Happy Hollows' debut album, Spells, is out now and the energetic trio is currently on tour with the almighty Besnard Lakes.
Named after a skateboard move from a vintage skate film, Los Angeles band NIGHTMARE AIR emphasizes sonic momentum, during both live performances and in the studio.
In support of 2013 debut release “High in the Lasers” the trio comprised of Dave Dupuis, Swaan Miller and Jimmy Lucido, have been raging venues across the globe with energetic massive sound walls, captivating lights, and ethereal vocals. All of which landed the group critical success such as featured new artist in Filter and Under the Radar magazine, and album of the month in ArtRocker Magazine UK.
2017 now finds the band completing their second studio album and adding 4th member Liza Stegall on keyboards. Liza on now on the keys they’ve take their expanding wall of sound around the US and playing select shows and festivals sharing the stage with The Kills, Black Mountain, Teenage Fanclub, Cat Power and more.
Nightmare Air’s Dupuis, a veteran of L.A. shoegazers Film School (Beggars Banquet Records), and Miller, whose stark acoustic album on Important Records melted hearts and faces everywhere, meticulously layer boy-girl harmonies, pulsing pop synths, psych noise loops and glam soaked walls of guitars. Add to that Liza Stegall on the keys and Detroit heavy hitter Jimmy Lucido on the drums (The Strays/ TVT records) in their combined years of touring, these road veterans have supported heavyweights from Smashing Pumpkins to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Swervedriver. Headlining clubs and playing festivals around the world Nightmare Air have shared stages with The Kills, The Dandy Warhols, Teenage Fanclub, Cat Power, The Black Lips, The Soft Moon, No Age, Sonic Youth legend Lee Ranaldo, The Wedding Present, The Duke Spirit, No Age, The Buzzcocks, Ringo Deathstarr, Fishbone, Japanther, Ice Age, and The Cult and many more.
The sophomore album being mixed in Los Angeles and was recorded around the world in between tours in studios in Ireland, Las Vegas, Amsterdam and finally Toronto where they brought in the assistance of Doug Romano (Drake, Justin Bieber) to complement their musical pivot.
Released in 2013 the debut studio full-length “High in the Lasers” mixed by Dave Schiffman (Nine Inch Nails, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Mars Volta) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Sonic Youth, The White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
The debut release “High in the Lasers” is available on indie front line labels St. Marie Records (CD, Digital) and Goodnight Records (Vinyl) as well as Vinyl Junkie in Japan, sharing a roster with Ringo Deathstarr, Adam Franklin (Swervedriver), The Wombats, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Crocodiles.
August 2017, Nightmare Air will be playing a residency at world famous Los Angeles venue The Satellite.
Hold on tight, the future is bright.
Son of Stan
Son of Stan is the solo project and band of songwriter Jordan Richardson (Drummer for Ben Harper, Ringo Starr). The creative debut album is set for release in 2013 and was produced by Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and shocases a unique, psychedelic style that Richardson calls "Divorce Pop".
The sound of his forthcoming album, due for release in 2013, though hard to pinpoint, range in influence from the darker side of 80's pop such as Joe Jackson, Phil Collins, R. Stevie Moore, (and even Hall and Oates) to more, even heavier, stonier psychedelic nods.
Richardson told Dallas based blog Central Track: "It's a little difficult to describe the sound of it, but there is a definite aesthetic goal in mind with the record. There are a lot of songs from my childhood in the mid 80's that when I hear now they give me a totally unsettling feeling (songs I refer to as "divorce pop", though my parents remain happily married) and remind me of the pains of being dragged around by my mom on hot Saturday afternoons in 1989, to a weird strip mall women's clothing store called 'Show Off Fashion'. I want to make songs that convey that feeling and mood. "North Texas Unsettling Childhood Memory Pop". or maybe "Divorce Pop". The song "Corsica" is definitely about that, I think. Both sonically and in subject matter... I dunno. Its weird and you can dance to it, but I hope it makes you feel a little funny.
