Monday Night Residency with Night Terrors of 1927

Night Terrors of 1927

What do we know about the mysteriously monikered Night Terrors of 1927? Well, they're from LA. We know that because it says so on their SoundCloud page, which only has one song on it. As does their official website. Perhaps there's more information on their Facebook page? Nope, they only signed up for that last week. Ah, but Twitter, everyone's on Twitter. Yep, they're on Twitter, but they've only tweeted three times and only have four followers. Still, it's all about the music, isn't it? Thankfully their debut offering, Watch the World Go Dark, is excellent. An impending apocalypse never sounded so good.

Halfbluud

Harley Cortez was musically quiet in 2012, focusing on art and filmmaking. After years of extensive touring, prolific output, and fronting various bands such as Red Cortez and Just An Animal, "Halfbluud" became the much needed reclusion to 'kick old habits'.

In late 2012, after writing hundreds of songs and playing pop-up shows throughout Los Angeles and New York, the moniker HALFBLUUD took form. A self-titled EP was recorded in Echo Park, CA, in a make shift studio in the shed behind Cortez's abode.

Halfbluud's latest EP, Shibuya, sounds like a lo-fi, minimalistic, shoe gaze union with a hint of soul which stems from a direct result of reclusion, heartbreak, and world travels.

"The growing buzz around Ghost Loft or the moniker for LA producer Danny Choi has steadily been building and the anticipation for his debut full-length is probably at it's highest right now. His latest tune called "So High" is a ambient and alternative journey that leaves you with positive energy. It's a relaxed song, but the layers of sounds and vocals are incredible. Not only do I expect some more lush music from Choi, but I can guarantee there will be a ton of great remixes by other producers of his songs."~ohsofreshmusic.com

Bitter-sweet alternative rock with roots in both post-punkand90‘ s British guitar pop.

Recorded in part at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood, the anthemic “Hesitation Waltz” affirms “their newband identity by injecting some Anglophile-friendly edginess into their pop grandiosity” according to BuzzBands LA. "'Hesitation Waltz’ isabout the impossibility of reconnecting," the band admits. "Before every fall, there is a moment that you take for granted. This song lives in that moment.”
