William Alexander charms with his homebrew psychedelia

William Alexander offers just the right amount of strange on his latest single "Strangest Things", a breezy, psychedelic track about falling madly in love that settles into a firm groove with its funky, swaggering backbeat. The Long Beach singer/songwriter will relese his debut full length, entitled Strangest Things, on November 6th via Yellow K Records. 


Stream: Travelers, "My Fault"

Like an abandoned shack by the seaside, Travelers' new song "My Fault" contains a multitude of ghosts. Not the threatening kind, but the ones that wisp by on a breeze, leaving you to wonder if you had actually felt anything in the first place. Something seems just out of reach, as harmonies fade over and around the core melody, on which the vocalist croons, "I thought I felt you breathe, but I lost it."

The band consists of members Bret Leinen, Aidin Sadeghi, Eric Cannata and Francois Comtois, with Cannata and Comtois also involved in the popular indie rock band Young The Giant, and Leinen and Sadeghi coming from former OC folk outfit Strange Birds. Saying Travelers sounds like a mix of these two bands would not be inaccurate, but we'll let them define their sound for themselves - they purportedly have an entire album under their belt, with more songs to be released in the coming weeks. - Brittany Scheffler 


Jazzercising to Gateway Drugs: "Anu" music video released

Los Angeles' narcotic siblings Gateway Drugs threw out a music video for their 2015 long-play Magick Spells opener "Anu", the garage-surf invigorator for your calisthenics and jazzercise regimens. Free yourself from the couch-lock and work up a sweat to this VHS magic. - Ryan Mo 


Painted Zeros celebrate release of "Floriography" LP at Shea Stadium on 10.30

Painted Zeros is a Brooklyn trio devising (rather) lo-fi songs that strike a happy medium between the clean, dreamy sound of dream-pop and the hyper-effected one of shoegazer, without outruling the occasional bursts of feedback-based noise. The band will be celebrating the release of their debut full length "Floriography" at Shea Stadium on 10.30, a few weeks before embarking on a tour with another local trio, Slight, who play a catchy brand of garage pop. Check out the two singles available for streaming from Painted Zeros' album, below. Their most popular single from their debut EP Svalbard, entitled "Polar Night," can be found here.
