On a misty winter night filled with bourbon, peace pipes and "Their Satanic Majesties Request," LA's magic makers, Spirit Vine, spun the karmic wheel when they united inside a wooden ship in Echo Park. Formed by Los Angeles based guitarist Gabriel Pacheco, singer/songwriter Jacquelinne Cingolani and guitarist/bassist Aaron Bustos, Spirit Vine endured several line up changes before a chance encounter solidified the spirit of the band. One evening, a stroll through Echo Park would have the trio stumbling across drummer Jalise Woodward meandering in front of the historical Echo Park barber shop. The events that proceeded are unknown, the rest is history, Spirit Vine was born. Often drawing comparisons to Siouxsie and the Banshees, X, Shocking Blu, The Stooges and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Spirit Vine have been playing the underground circuit for the past few years with some of L.A.'s finest accessories to rock and roll/punk. They have released two EP's and are currently awaiting the release of their first LP (produced by Joe Cardamone of The Icarus Line) under Manimal Vinyl in October 2013. Spirit Vine will be making the circuits playing CMJ, touring the US and embarking on a European tour in the spring. Currently, they are in pre production to record with Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Fool's Gold) in January for a follow up EP/LP...who knows with these guys.
Spirit Vine's haunting music tears the flesh and gets down to the bone, strikes a few nerves along the way and gracefully sews it all back together again...we ain't dead...yet.
" L.A. band Spirit Vine have been making their own special kind of witchy rock & roll-the kind of thing you think of when you hear Beefheart growl about coming outta the desert" (LA WEEKLY/ Chris Ziegler)
The Pack A.D.
The Pack a.d. have been growing inexorably since they signed to Mint Records. Drummer Maya Miller and guitarist/vocalist Becky Black stormed off the mean streets of East Vancouver with their debut album Tintype in hand and Funeral Mixtape following shortly thereafter, both released by Mint in 2008. Since then, the duo has unleashed their brand of tribal, blues and punk infected garage-rock across North America and Europe. Mint released their third album we kill computers in 2010, which cemented their place at the forefront of Canadian independent music on the back of dozens of glowing reviews and a few award nominations. Showing no signs of slowing down, the band’s fourth album Unpersons, produced by the infamous Jim Diamond (The Dirtbombs, The Paul Collins Beat, The White Stripes) and released in September 2011, is going strong, having been praised by many in the media and embraced by mainstream, indie and campus radio alike.
