PREMIERE: Human Ottoman - "YDKWH"

Opposing the conventional instrumental makeup of a band, Human Ottoman devise lively musicanship with Susan Lucia on drums, Grayson Fiske on vibraphone and Matthew Cartmill on cello. The three met each other in college and their shared interest in mingled measures resulted in a self released album, 2014's Independent Music Award winning Power Baby, and the single they're bringing to you today. "YDKWH" (standing for "you don't know what's happening") is a crazed, frenetic expression of each member's individual talent. With a video just as vibrantly chaotic as the song itself, Human Ottoman kill it. You can see for yourself with the debut of their new video below, and check out the album it comes off of, Farang.

vōx plays the Bootleg on 2.1

Early last year, we were enchanted with singer-songwriter vōx and her noteworthy single "Money". As we await for more new music this year, the art pop project of Sarah Winters is making the sporadic appearance to remind us of her mesmeric live performances. Winters will be sharing a bill at the Bootleg this next Monday, February 1st alongside AKW and Lena Fayre. 

Listen to "Get Down", which she just released this past month via her official soundcloud page.

Sextile set to join Soft Moon for 2016 West Coast Tour

In a twist of events, Los Angeles' occult punks Sextile were recently hand-picked to tour parts of the West Coast with self-actualized Oakland-turned-Venetian EBM project The Soft Moon, following the dropout of headliner Killing Joke due to health reasons. Taking financial difficulties into account, Sextile launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for touring expenses —  the band has reached almost $1000, nearly 120% of their goal, with 13 more days to go. The support does not come unwarranted, either — since the release of their debut album A Thousand Hands, Sextile have made a name for themselves performing across Los Angeles with darker dance partners like The Electric West, L.A. Drones, and Terminal A. With expanding coverage from shore to shore, their purgatory sounds evoke perfectly the spiritual unrest and emotional agitation that scrapes the back of our thoughts.  

In a recent interview with music blog Heathen Harvest, the band has announced that it will also perform at SXSW this year, and are currently writing new material for upcoming releases. Stream Sextile's debut album A Thousand Hands on Bandcamp and catch them at The Casbah in San Diego tonight. - Ryan Mo





Experimental pop artist James Discovers plays Arts at the Armory Thursday (1/28)

Self-described "experimental pop" artist James Discovers puts some bizarre twists on "pop" conventions, while holding on to enough traditional pop structures to keep listeners engaged. Catchy hooks and bright guitars are frequently contrasted with wildy distorted, spastic guitar solos and effects-ladened vocals that feel as though the listener is at an undersea concert. If you'd rather stay above-water for a show, head to Arts at the Armory on January 28 and catch James' set during The Loop Songwriter Showcase. You can also stay up-to-date on the latest James Discovers news via his Facebook page and, in the meantime, check out his song "Cannibal Eyes" (streaming below). -Dan McMahon (@dmcmhn)

PREMIERE: KULULULU - "We Are Kulululu"

Donned in the finest of linens and strangest of face masks, experimental rock band Kulululu are officially dropping their new addicting single "We Are Kulululu."  The track bounces back and forth between jazzy progressions and full fledged rock, delivered to you in raucously burstful spurts. You're guaranteed to seizurely gyrate and jump about. They're playing a show at Noon TODAY at the PSU blocks but if you can't make it out, they're playing another show on the 30th at the Turn Turn Turn with Rilla and The Toads.

Check out "We Are Kulululu" below!
