Parade Of Lights
Parade Of Lights
Parade of Lights are an alt-electro band based in Los Angeles. Comprised of Ryan Daly, Anthony Improgo, Mariana Iglesias, and John Brummitt, the group combines equal parts rock, new wave, and shoegaze to create a unique blend of 80's influenced pop drawing on inspiration from artists like U2, Depeche Mode, M83, and even Madonna.

Shortly after meeting in LA in 2006, they formed the band Polus. After releasing a four-song EP entitled "Wish" and garnering a significant buzz locally, Polus was put on hiatus due to considerable demand for both Daly and Improgo as touring musicians. Even with their rigorous touring schedules, the two managed to keep their friendship intact and exchanged song ideas via email until 2010 when they decided to officially reunite as Parade of Lights. They spent that year and 2011 releasing new music and playing shows in Southern California, Utah and Nevada, opening for artists like Imagine Dragons, Marcy Playground, Light FM, Rooney, Stamps, and Ringside among others.


Recent music film and TV placements have gained the band considerable attention from music and TV insiders, not to mention a legitimate core group of dedicated fans. The exposure along with POL's hook-laden songs and entertaining live show, led to a publishing deal December 2011 with Imagem Music.

The band's latest effort, an EP entitled "Born To Live, Born To Love", was released in September of 2012.
Son of Stan
Son of Stan
Son of Stan is the solo project and band of songwriter Jordan Richardson (Drummer for Ben Harper, Ringo Starr). The creative debut album is set for release in 2013 and was produced by Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and shocases a unique, psychedelic style that Richardson calls "Divorce Pop".

The sound of his forthcoming album, due for release in 2013, though hard to pinpoint, range in influence from the darker side of 80's pop such as Joe Jackson, Phil Collins, R. Stevie Moore, (and even Hall and Oates) to more, even heavier, stonier psychedelic nods.

Richardson told Dallas based blog Central Track: "It's a little difficult to describe the sound of it, but there is a definite aesthetic goal in mind with the record. There are a lot of songs from my childhood in the mid 80's that when I hear now they give me a totally unsettling feeling (songs I refer to as "divorce pop", though my parents remain happily married) and remind me of the pains of being dragged around by my mom on hot Saturday afternoons in 1989, to a weird strip mall women's clothing store called 'Show Off Fashion'. I want to make songs that convey that feeling and mood. "North Texas Unsettling Childhood Memory Pop". or maybe "Divorce Pop". The song "Corsica" is definitely about that, I think. Both sonically and in subject matter... I dunno. Its weird and you can dance to it, but I hope it makes you feel a little funny.
Y Luv
Y Luv
L.A.'s Y LUV may be fairly new to the music scene but they're already well on their way to earning spots on iPods and party playlists with recent songs like the electro-rock anthem "Keep It Rollin'." Young but hardworking, the quintet's latest single is a nice expansion on their sound from the previous EP "How Chill Can You Let Go." Similarly to their first single, "All Night," which featured a sparse intro with a heavy bass line that built up to soaring chorus, "Keep It Rollin'" initially keeps listeners in suspense only to lead into an eclectic burst of intricate guitar lines and synthesized beats designed for fist-pumping. However, if you could do with less electro components, "Earthquakes" is also a recommended track in which strong vocals and bright guitar riffs dominate.---Buzzbands.la
