What is tomorrows tulips?
what happened to your big brothers indie rock?
don't worry alex and ford are keeping it safe for you...
born and bred off the southern California coast both these two dudes are keeping the fine tradition of slightly bummed, slightly happy, slightly outta tune and slightly crafty underground rock music alive. they aren't really 90's revivalists, they are happening now!
they know there was a velvet underground before there was a beat happening and they know it well.
they know there was a pavement before there was a weezer and they know it well.
they know bands recorded on 4 tracks before there was garageband and they know it well.
they know the kids from burger records and they know them well.
they have a new lp out called "experimental jelly" maybe you should get to know it well.
-Brent Rademaker (Beachwood Sparks, Further)
Incan Abraham is a NY State founded and LA based four piece specializing in a unique brand of world infused psychedelic pop. Like their name, their music evokes themes ancient and far away, while confronting you with the immediacy and paradoxes of life today.
"They've made it past their mirror stage, and learned the right lessons about rhythmic elasticity, textural curiosity and instrumental democracy."
-Ian Cohen, Pitchfork
"With haunting synth guitars and textured percussion, an Incan Abraham song feels like a memory even the first time you listen to it, a soundscape for a road trip you've already taken."
" If The Wonders hailed from Hawthorne, California instead of Erie, Pennsylvania, and dropped acid on the regular they might sound something like Cotillon. Which, in my world, is the highest of compliments. "

There's no stopping Post-Surf/Garage Pop band, Cotillon. Their debut EP, Votive Flower, was released in October, and they're already presenting their second offering - the less heartbroken 'White Roses' EP. This second dose still carries the same moodiness, pep and youthful vigor, but with more cohesive, stylized production, and more assured songwriting. Standouts "Talk to Her" and "Tijuana" are filled with frontman Jordan Corso's slacker vocal moments and the amazing guitar work from Zach Miller we loved on the first EP. 'White Roses' is equal parts nostalgia, peyote-drenched romanticism, laissez-faire francophilia, and post-post-modern anxiety. -Jacqueline Caruso (the Deli)
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)
Memory Motel is a 3 piece rock band from Reno, Nevada fronted by CJ Gibson, with a rhythm section featuring brothers Ben and Sam Ashlock. They were formed originally by CJ and Sam in 2010. The play a wide variety of music loosely labeled pop but it is very hard to nail down a specific genre. There music ranges from headbanging garage rock, to stompy folk rock to intricate electronic-
