Ugly Sweaters
Ugly Sweaters
Ugly Sweaters is the musical musings of couple Mandlenkosi “Mandla” and Claire Daley, Alex Pfender and Ian Meltzer. Growing up in rural South Africa and Zimbabwe, Mandla spent his childhood listening to mix tapes sent over by his uncle. Given the opportunity to relocate to the United States Mandla took it. After meeting through various people in the L.A. music scene, the four decided to collaborate on a project under the moniker Ugly Sweaters. Now based in Los Angeles, Ugly Sweaters brings a global flavor and frenetic stage show to the West Coast music scene. Bring your dancing shoes!
Swimsuit Issue
Swimsuit Issue
Swimsuit Issue is a New York-based band fronted by Miles Garber and David Gagliardi.

Coming from the punk scenes of Los Angeles and New York, the duo wanted to use the attitude and mentality of their past to create something non-traditional in their scene. The duo wrote, produced and recorded three songs they are self-releasing on vinyl next month.

The video for their first single, "Break" was filmed in Brooklyn, NY and directed by Bon Duke and Dan Regan.
Palm Springsteen
Palm Springsteen
Palm Springsteen is a band, a moniker, a portmanteau, a person, a place, a thing, and Bez from Happy Mondays. It's interchangeable with the word "grease", from the song Grease, from the movie Grease. It's Blow Pop in Space. It's the love child between Rick Deckard and Korben Dallas hanging ten on a glassy asteroid wave. It a feeling; a combination of ethereal synth, raw guitar, and driving rhythms for an explosive aural experience.
Oberhofer
Oberhofer
Brad Oberhofer, frontman of the indie-rock outfit Oberhofer, is just 19 years old, and on "Awy Frm U", he exhibits a pretty good understanding of the duality of rejection. He seems to understand how it both hurts and provides a fresh start. There's nervousness in his voice-- bolstered by ramshackle guitars and a sugar-rushed drum beat that build to an inescapably joyous climax-- but instead of conveying dread, Oberhofer sounds like he's expressing the kind of happy, life-affirming jitters you get when waiting on line for a roller coaster, or when you win concert tickets on the radio. Ah, youth.
