Black Apples
Black Apples
The band has its roots in brotherhood—Campbell and Andrew Scarborough grew up in New York in what Campbell describes as a creative household. The brothers honed their skills at various venues in the five boroughs. In 2008, the Black Apples found themselves living together in Fort Collins, Colorado where they began to define their own brand of music, selling out local venues and gaining a loyal local following. Over the summer of 2009, they gathered the band in a rural, lakeside barn to record their self-titled EP as homage to the mountains. Continuing west to Los Angeles, the Black Apples began a grueling stint of playing every venue or party in the Southern California area, often a show every day of the week (including 2am guerrilla shows in Tijuana).

The brothers continue to draw on their influences, familial and otherwise, to create infectious music laced with what they call "Psychedelic Motown Surf." It's accessible yet demanding, strangely catchy and growing in popularity. As the dust settles amid broken guitars, line-up changes, marathon recording sessions, blown out amps and sold out venues, the Black Apples look toward a broad horizon. Their debut self-titled album is available now on iTunes and is also scheduled for release as a limited-edition vinyl. Plans for the future include more writing, recording, releases and, as always, shows. The Black Apples are just getting started.
And And And
And And And
Born in Portland, OR in the year of our Lord, 2009, And And And is a 6 piece band of thieves and gypsies that play rock music that could possibly be compared to The Kinks and Pavement thrown into a blender and left for several days in the sun.

Rainbow Jackson, the scuzzed-up power pop band from Echo Park, take their name from the greatest American athlete to ever play two sports, Bo Jackson. Band members Chad, Sam, Laith and Andy share a two bedroom house and a practice space with the talented and universally liked band Vanaprasta as well as a cat, a dog and a small collection of uninvited mice. They’ve been a mainstay of Echo Park’s indie scene for the last two years, supporting their friends White Arrows, NO and Youngblood Hawke.
Earlier this year, the band went to SXSW, where they performed at the Amazon MP3 Party and the Ooh La LA Records Showcase. Death+Taxes Magazine called them one of SXSW 2013 Rising Stars. In April, they released a new song called Flamingo Starr, which premiered via Pure Volume. The buzz from that landed the band a few other opportunities, including an on-air performance with AXS TV Live, where they played Flamingo Starr and a new one, Psycho Betty. The band also just won Diffuser.FM’s Song of the Month Poll with a solid 39% of the vote, which lead to this sweet interview.
In June, Rainbow Jackson released a split 7” with The Hindu Pirates via Near Mess Records, featuring the single Freckles, which premiered via Buzzbands. The video for Freckles later premiered via Pure Grain Audio. That same month, the band was also featured in a commercial for Pivot TV, which was featured by Entertainment Weekly.
Recently, Rainbow Jackson premiered a new single called Psycho Betty via Crave Online. Psycho Betty is the first track released from their forthcoming Perpetual Summer EP, a follow up to 2012’s Rippin’ Off The Rails. The Perpetual Summer EP should be out sometime this fall (we hope).
