The Pack a.d.
The Pack a.d.
Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals-this is the Pack A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic, so fierce and raw and empowering, that it's easy to forget there are just two people behind this brilliant, carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, the Pack A.D. swallows you whole inside their fearless Franken-blend of heavy psychpop/garage-rock. Their lyrics are wild nests, human and complex: darkly funny disclosures about depression; indictments of digital excess; grief-stricken fire bombs; sly crusades against stupidity. New record, Dollhouse, out October 13 2017.
La Louma
La Louma
La Louma is the solo art-rock/pop project of multi-instrumentalist and former St. Vincent collaborator Lauren Ross, whose debut album drops Nov 3, 2017 via Bitchwave, the feminist/queer collective and label she co-runs in Los Angeles. On her debut, she explores heavy subject matter in an upbeat atmosphere, merging her classical training with a strong DIY queer punk ethos that was fostered by the same Olympia WA scene that birthed Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, and Gossip.

Meticulously handcrafted over hundreds of hours of solitude, La Louma’s palette includes thickly melodic woodwinds and brass, electric guitar and bass, impatient drums, tremolo vocal undercurrents, and metaphor-laden lyrics. The LP’s tone repeatedly shifts unexpectedly from dramatic desperation to quiet contemplation, from a determined sprint to utter immobilization. Musically mirroring La Louma’s vagabond mind, each of the album’s richly transportive scenes are colored by carefully chosen modalities, timbres, instrumentations, and arrangements.

“Lauren Ross, otherwise known as La Louma, has a message for the world, and she’s not afraid to share it. That much is clear the first time you hear the opening track ‘The Decline of Nations,’ which Billboard is premiering exclusively. It’s catchy and cool, but drenched with a call to action amidst the crunchy guitar and refrains. Something’s gotta give, and she urges the listener to ‘stay until you try to make things right.’ ” — BILLBOARD (full article here)

“With its core of strong hooks and a jubilant, danceable bass line, ['Just Wanna Love You'] shows Ross’ ability to make complex pop music sound effortless, no matter how deeply she explores time signatures and rhythms throughout the track. And in the end, it all serves the overarching themes of the song, which centers around the rollercoaster of emotions that come from feeling trapped in a relationship that isn’t working anymore.” — SHE SHREDS (full article )
Object as Subject
OBJECT AS SUBJECT is an LA-based art punk band led by Paris Hurley (vox, drums, dance // Kultur Shock) featuring Gina Young (bass, vox // SORORITY, Feminist Acting Class), Emilia "PonySweat" Richeson (dance, drums), and Nick Tamburro (drums // The Dead Science). This feminist battle cry is a call to action fueled by raw wailing vocals, a barrage of floor toms, gritty bass riffs, and contemporary dance that converges in the space between Gaga vocabulary + 80’s workout videos.

Dedicated to addressing white supremacist, capitalist, christian, heteronormative patriarchy through music, dance, communal ritual, and direct political action, OBJECT AS SUBJECT, weaves a punk incantation inviting you to turn inward, face yourself, free yourself, save yourself, act on behalf of others, dismantle systems of oppression, revel in your joy, scream your anger, and feel your sorrow, grounded in the belief that every revolution begins within the self.
