Pony Boy
Pony Boy
“…[Pony Boy] has left behind her punk roots and twin-decks for her debut solo Pony Boy EP, aptly described as junkyard country Bradanini channels her wonderful smoky vocal through a slew of influences to produce something of real gravitas, the tracks were recorded to tape mostly in one-take and produced by Amy Aileen and John Would (Fiona Apple, Warren Zevon, Wanda Jackson), excellent stuff that had this listener reaching for the repeat button over and over.” - UK's Beat Surrender

Exploring themes of the Ol' West and heartache, Pony Boy's gravel-riddled tunes have been coined, "Junkyard Country." Recalling a1950's nostalgia and Southern Gothic Soul. With a freshly minted EP recorded to tape in the storied Stanly Studios by the production team of Amy Aileen and John Would (Fiona Apple, Warren Zevon, Wanda Jackson) mostly in one-take performances between beers and Mexican food.
Baywood
Baywood
The Story of Baywood

In late 2010, fate came a-knocking for Joe Ginsberg and Jarrad Kritzstein - two young Eastside gentlemen filled to the brim with creativity, talent, and facial hair. The pair were instant friends and considered the possibility of a "separated at birth" hospital error as all took note that they could be in the same police line-up with their dark Jewish locks, black rimmed glasses, and extensive wardrobe of flannel shirts. Perhaps their connection was brought on by a shared ability to pluck away at virtually any instrument under the sun. Maybe it was their shared love of Australian accents. Regardless of the cause, both fellows felt gratitude in finding a brand new partner in crime.

Some people say when you meet your true doppleganger, the universe explodes. Luckily, this didn't happen. Instead Jarrad and Joe began a darling bromance and bonded over music, whiskey, girls, and heartbreak. While playing in Audra Mae's band, The Almighty Sound, and becoming a big, happy Silverlake family, Jarrad and Joe quickly ascended to a new level of communication thanks to some kind of shared-brain connection. It was a coded language consisting primarily of abbreviations, catchphrases, and hashtags. Verbal chatter led to music chatter so under Audra's encouragement, Joe shared some old garage band recordings with Jarrad that he had left unattended over the last year. After a quick listen in a room conveniently filled with acoustic instruments, they finished their first song "I Can Breathe Again" in just a few hours.

With inspiration so thick from wounded hearts and the buzz of meeting their creative matches, the two proceeded to write and record 5 songs in 5 hangs. They passed their music to friends and family only to receive rave reviews and inquiries as to what the band was called and when they'd be sharing their creations with the public. After some brief telepathic Jarrad-to-Joe communication they agreed it was time to become a band. As they stood on Jarrad's front stoop contemplating what to call themselves, they reflected on all the great times they'd had on Baywood street, home of Jarrad's studio and all their recording sessions. The name Baywood... yeahBAYWOOD... stuck for all the positivity and creative energy it brought the pair, and a brand new earthy, acoustic, folk pop band was born.
Charlie Wadhams
Charlie Wadhams
Charlie started as the lead singer of a band called Rex Aquarium. They released two records and a 7", and then broke up in 2005. In 2006, Charlie released his first solo record, "Free Up Your Schedule" produced by Mike Andrews (Donnie Darko, Greyboy Allstars). In 2007, Charlie wrote two songs that were featured in the movie "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story", a song called "Let's Duet" which he co-wrote with Benji Hughes, and "Guilty as Charged" which he co-wrote with Gus Seyffert. That year, he also had a song featured on the t.v. show "Men In Trees". In 2008, Charlie released a 4-song EP entitled, "In a Goldmine". He is currently recording his next full length record.
Broken Anchor
Broken Anchor
The story of new indie rock band Broken Anchor begins in a home studio in Los Angeles' diverse Echo Park neighborhood, where the song "Broken Anchor Blues" was recorded in 2012. The project grew organically out of a collaboration between Austin Hartley-Leonard and producer, Brad Gordon. The music reflects a broader influence from Austin's previous efforts, lending itself to comparisons with Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes and what Brad calls "a kind of elegant lo-fi retro vibe".

New perspectives on life and love outside of music brought new inspiration and ideas to Austin's songwriting. As he and Brad entered the studio to begin recording, they took each song as it came and let the songs lead the way. "Since these tunes were new and he was looking for a new sound, I felt we really had to push them down the hill and see where they went," Brad says.

Brad's studio, located in his Echo Park home, is a small space filled with every possible instrument: guitars, piano, basses, organ, synths, and horns, all ready to record when inspiration strikes. "The goal is to be able to create in a casual environment and be able to try ideas quickly while making a song", Brad says. His Los Angeles studio is a departure from Austin's previous, more structured and time-sensitive studio experiences. Because the vibe in the studio was so laid back, Austin and Brad were free to experiment with percussion and loops, even recruiting two Diet Coke bottles for an intro. When they needed something extra, drummer John Wells (Hotel Café sound man, engineer extraordinaire), custom-drum kit specialist Quinn Orison (Daft Punk, Tracy Chapman) and bassist Jonny Flaugher stepped in.

Broken Anchor didn't set out to record an album, but three songs became six, which became eight, until there were twelve album-worthy songs on tape. From the doo-wop intro of "Leave The Light On" to the haunting, reverb-laden "Dear Diary", layered vocals on top of distant percussion lend an elegant mystery to the music. Broken Anchor is a stunning ride through a songwriter's exploration of life and love, created with a clarity of vision only the journey can provide.
Rainbow Jackson
Rainbow Jackson
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).
Haroula Rose
Haroula Rose
Hailing from Chicago but now settled in the Los Angeles landscape, Haroula Rose's newly released debut album "These Open Roads" has garnered well-deserved acclaim in her adopted city. She has spent much of her recent life on the move, including a stint abroad on a Fulbright grant that took her to Spain and beyond for nearly two years, and resulted in a lot of writing. Her EP from 2009 had the title track "Someday" featured in an episode of "How I Met Your Mother" and led to making a full album. The LP, recorded in Athens, Georgia with Andy Lemaster (REM, Bright Eyes, Azure Ray) producing is described as "music that's strongly written, with solid song structure amidst the elements of folk and at times, bluegrass" (LA Record). It was described by the LA Times as having a dreamy quality with a track that's "kissed with atmospherics that would give Tom Waits the shivers," and is altogether "highly textured, melodic, lovely, graceful. Rose picked the right company to realize this highly textured collection that explores a few different moods, though always at a tender remove."
Amy Blaschke
Amy Blaschke
The allure of Amy Blaschke’s Americana is in the details — her fragile voice at once exuding strength and vulnerability, lyrical moments that work like weathered photographs, spare arrangements that let her songs breathe. Blaschke, a Seattle native who last released an album in 2007 (under the name Night Canopy), returns this month with “Desert Varnish,” recorded two years ago with collaborators Joshua Grange (guitar), Jebin Bruni (keyboards), Ian Walker (bass) and Steve Nistor (drums), all of whom boast impressive resumés, none of which stand in the way of Blaschke’s unspoken mantra that frequently understatement is the strongest statement of all. The album is out Feb. 19 via Bird on a Lyre Records.
