Max and The Moon
Max and The Moon
Emerging out of the combustive indie music scene of Southern California in 2009, Max and the Moon and their relentless gig playing have created a buzz that rides on its own frequency. The four-piece band displays a talent for intricate songwriting and sounds that resemble the classic harmonies of the Beach Boys and early Coldplay to the catchy dance beats of Passion Pit. Substance Magazine writes, “their music has a way of pulling you in with their starry guitar echoing in combination with John’s soothing vocals and superb upper register.”

Laden with strong guitar licks, steady piano and punctuated vocal harmonies—the band makes full use of two primary vocalists. Max and the Moon’s “The Way I See,” showcases the band’s songwriting and experimentation with new sounds, expanding their scope and offering a significant contribution to the ever-changing music scene in Los Angeles. “Out of My Head” opens with cleverly conjured sampling of Matt’s unique voice to make us feel the irony of having someone stuck in your head. These guys have a lucid vision and you experience it in their music—think of the Lost Boys landing in LA—that is Max and the Moon.
Fire In The Hamptons
Fire In The Hamptons
Descending from the heavens (with an arrival point somewhere directly skyward of Los Angeles, California) looms Fire In The Hamptons: A tribal entity that has come to provide the Earth with the soundtrack for celestial lovemaking. Floating in the wind somewhere above the inner vivid-enchantment of a music industry that has become increasingly affected and tediously defined, lead Vocalist Zack Hampton and co-conspirator Bert Selen have come to let loose a shelling of aroused sonification and youthful menace by means of elegantly slung spears of desire. On stage the concept transforms into a four piece band consisting of Aaron Bilyeu on drums, Ian Dowd on lead guitar and Emvy Venti on synth/ piano. A colorful array of remixed styles, from the polyphonic buzz of the early 80's synthesizers to intricately strummed delayed guitar lines all riding on the back bone of deep house thumping kicks inspires and arranges the sound of this electric-indie-rock band. For all intents and purposes, FITH is an auditory haven for the soul romping, hunger driven children of the sun. We are the fire.
