The Henry Clay People
The Henry Clay People
After just over 10 years as a band, The Henry Clay People played their final show in August of 2013 and went their separate ways.
The Lonely Wild
The Lonely Wild
With songs that blaze through the dusty American West, quickly-rising L.A. quintet The Lonely Wild stand poised to release their debut LP, “The Sun As It Comes.” The first single from the record, “Buried in the Murder,” is a fistfight of a tune, thrusting the growl of singer Andrew Carroll against the bombastic guitar freakouts of Andrew Schneider. The track seethes with boiling tension over a backdrop of stomps, claps and screams. Carroll’s voice swells from contemplation to utter outrage as he copes with the loss of innocence and being true to himself when all the odds are stacked against him. Drawing from personal experience, the songs that make up “The Sun As It Comes” are pulled from a collection built over the past three years.

In the fall of 2009, Carroll witnessed the death of his grandmother who had lost her battle with drug addiction, watched his band of six years dissolve, and at last married his longtime love. To cope with these moments of pain and bliss, Carroll began writing songs on solo, acoustic guitar. He would wake with a melody in his head, and finish a song by the end of that day. “It was a very liberating way to write,” he says, “Coming from my prior band experience, where songs were totally dependent on the collaboration of all the members, it was nice to be able to write for myself. It allowed me to be more direct and honest.”

But Carroll soon realized that his songs demanded a broader palate than one guitar and one voice. He wanted to create a sepia-toned world, a cracked landscape, a wind-torn desert. Enter multi-instrumentalist Ryan Ross, whose soaring trumpet and rumbling bass and organ bring drama and tension, guitarist Andrew Schneider, whose blistering twang colors the songs with his 60’s psychedelic-western flare, and drummers Edward Cerecedes, and later Dave Farina, whose thunderous tribal beats propel the songs soul-shaking precision. Jessi Williams’ lilting croon solidifies their signature sound built around male-female vocal harmonies.

Their first EP, “Dead End,” launched them on a national tour, earned them airplay on college radio staples, KXLU and KUT, and critical success. Of the EP, The L.A. Times writes, “[The Lonely Wild] rustles up rustic guitar pop that’s equal parts sweet harmonies and power chord bombast.” Kevin Bronson of Buzzbands L.A. says, “[Dead End] is five songs of aching Americana that will stay with you long after you’ve cried in your beer.” And Beat Crave writes, “The Lonely Wild have a sound like no other [...] the inexplicable heart and soul they put in their music is sure to have you hooked.”

Coming off the success of “Dead End,” The Lonely Wild headed to The Hangar Studios in Sacramento where they would live, eat, and sleep for a week, to record their first full-length album. Midway through the sessions, they woke to the devastating news that their head engineer’s father had died, forcing him to leave. The fate of the record seemed uncertain. A day short and with a new engineer, The Lonely Wild worked consecutive sixteen, eighteen and twenty-four hour days to produce an album filled with gut-wrenching emotion, fragile beauty, and explosive energy — a band on the brink of delirium. “It was a true labor of love,” Carroll says, “and a sheer force of will, that allowed us to finish this record. We all knew it was the most important artistic statement we had ever made, so we had to pull out all the stops.”

Upon finishing the record, the band headed to SXSW 2012, and returned home for the Jubilee and Make Music Pasadena festivals. The Lonely Wild will celebrate the release of their new single, “Buried in the Murder,” this September with a residency at The Satellite. “The Sun As It Comes,” is slated for release in “The Sun As It Comes,” is slated for release in April 2013.
Torches
Torches
TORCHES are an indie rock group tied together by a shared nostalgia from the music of their youth and dreams for the future. They have been making their mark in the LA music scene with their dark, indie/rock – filled with lush guitars, infectious harmonies, and pounding, tribal drums.

In May of 2013, the group headlined a successful LA residency at The Echo. They garnered the attention of KROQ, Alt 98.7 FM, LA Weekly, FILTER Magazine and shared the stage with bands such as Wild Nothing, Atlas Genius, The Drums, Peace and more.

The sounds of Torches have made airtime on KROQ, KCRW, MTV’s Catfish and Underemployed.” They have also been featured in NYLON Magazine, BBC, LA Times, Interview Magazine, etc.

Torches formerly worked with Local Natives’ producer, Raymond Richards and their latest release, Endlessly Repeating EP (2014) which was engineered by David Newton (The Soft Pack, The Mighty Lemon Drops, Henry Clay People) and Jeff Lipton (Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Wilco).

Here they come…
Kissing Cousins
Kissing Cousins
Kissing Cousins is an all girl band from Los Angeles, California. As the main creative outlet for songwriter Heather Bray Heywood, Kissing Cousins has had a variety of female musicians comprise the lineup. Most of whom were friends prior to joining the band as part of the greater East Side Los Angeles music scene. Heywood's songwriting is stark, baroque, and often sexually charged. With haunting melodies over noisy guitars and pounding rhythms, Kissing Cousins' music belies the sweet appearance of their name and image.

While the last record, Pillar Of Salt, produced by Richard Swift, took a decidedly lo-fi approach, the new EP / double 7 inch Unfortunate End is heavier, darker, and meaner. Produced By S Foye, the music utilizes more experimental instrumentation like Autoharp strummed through delay pedals and drum machines played manually through distorted amps. There is still plenty of reverb soaked vocals, vicious guitar tones, and stomping drums, but for the first time, the songs twist and turn within time signatures and tempos.

Lyrically, the songs explore the unfortunate ends of 4 different female protagonists. Heywood, who grew up in rural Alabama the daughter of southern ministers, drew heavily from personal experience to create stories reminiscent of the classic southern gothic literary cannon of Faulkner and O'Conner. But where they had only words, Heywood's music is just as responsible for telling these stories. With Unfortunate End Heywood and Kissing Cousins continue in a long tradition of redefining what it is to be in a "girl band" and what it is to sound feminine, southern, and ultimately, unique.
