" this is really power-pop like it's supposed to be — hooky, raw and cheerfully bitter beneath the cuteness, just like Alex Chilton used to make. A Corso lyric such as "I don't have much, but I have a true heart" may sound like something Jonathan Richman would sing very sincerely, but Cotillon's recent Votive Flower EP is soaked in plenty of sarcasm, too. Corso's got a voice somewhere between Daniel Johnston and The Only Ones' super-sneerer Peter Perrett. In songs like "I Wanna Move to Paris" or "Dream Girl/Infection Suite," he pours a bottle of drain cleaner into the human heart: "You gave me an infection, just like you meant to," goes one opening line. That's not love, but it sounds true nonetheless. Chris Ziegler (LA Weekly) "
The Dead Ships
A lot has happened for The Dead Ships in the short time that they’ve been together. They quickly became the most talked-about live show in L.A., picked up airplay on radio giant KROQ where their song “Big Quiet” spent five weeks in the number one slot on the station’s star-making Locals Only show. The Ships were hand-picked by Goldenvoice to perform at Coachella 2016 and LA WEEKLY named them the city's best band. Now, with the release of their debut full-length album, it’s time for the rest of the world to get to know The Dead Ships. Produced by Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning, the soulful garage rock four-piece has put together a fiery collection of songs that showcase McCluskey’s engaging yowl and an unrelenting drive that never lets up on the gas pedal.https://soundcloud.com/nevado/the-dead-ships-first-mistakessingle-version
Brown and Blue
Brown and Blue has existed in many forms over many years. It began in 2006 as the solo project of singer/songwriter Danny Nogueiras. Over the years it has taken shape in many different ways with many different friends before finding just the right mix of people to create something truly special. The band (now consisting of Danny Nogueiras, Ricky and Ray Cruces, Bert White, and Anthony Pausic) draws from classic Americana sounds and composition, fusing it with a more modern sometimes even emo sentiment to create something just as akin to Big Star or The Band as it is to Bright Eyes or Wilco. Their latest EP 'A Warmer Climate' was released in the summer of 2012 and received a solid critical and fan response. Brown and Blue are currently in the studio recording a new single to be out this summer and a new record they hope to have out later this year.
