Sounds Like Disco is a Los Angeles based indie-dance band. Founded in 2013, the group comprises five members: Sergio German (Guitar/Vocals/Synth), Miguel Lopez (Guitar), Jake Shafer (Bass/Synth), Callie Ray (Vocals), and Jimmy Zendejas (Drums). Influenced by the likes of Bloc Party, DFA 1979, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Two Door Cinema Club, Jimmy Eat World, and Metric, Sounds Like Disco mixes indie-electronic rock with disco break beats to create a synthesis of post-punk dance-rock. Known for creating an upbeat atmosphere and energetic live performance, Sounds Like Disco is found by audiences to be captivating, infectious, engaging and one of the all around hardest-working indie dance-rock bands on the scene. As a result, the band has been invited to perform at festivals including the Chocolate and Arts Festival in Downtown L.A., the Konsept and Arts Music Festival in Orange County and the 626 Night Market. SLD has performed live on air for KXLU 88.9 fm as part of their “Livation” program series, and have enjoyed airplay on 103.9 fm in California's Inland Empire. Having played venues including the Troubadour, The Mint, Chain Reaction, and The Satellite, SLD is gaining momentum at a rapid pace along with their fan base. Latest EP "COLORS" OUT NOW!!!
New American sounds like what Queens of the Stone Age sounded like before they got a hold of synthesizers, and they've been stalking the plains of Southern California since 2013. NA's latest release, "Them Drugged Out LA Kids", should be a regular on your "Driving around LA whilst smoking an entire box of cigarettes" playlist.
The three brothers that are CANTO can often be found extemporizing in their Pasadena home. Their sound seems indicative of their location-- the mountain expanse that divides Southern California's coast from her desert. Surf, psyche, the blues, and hip hop all bleed out from their tight-knit foundation. Listen to their latest single, "Moses"
