Foxx Bodies is a punk band that crawled out from the dusty desert lands of Tucson, Arizona and found themselves in Los Angeles, California in early 2017. In various write-ups, they have been coined as a "Riot Grrrl" band. This is understandable given the raw lyrics focused on sexual and political issues paired with the smashing of symbols and the distortion that blares from the stringed instruments. Having grown their roots in the southwest, Foxx Bodies hides undertones of Loretta Lynn style 1960's country music within many of their songs as well. This leaves many people unable to confidently label the band's genre. Which they love.
Lando Chill’s new album, “The Boy Who Spoke To The Wind,” is a personal tribute to self actualization, spiritual acceptance and social activism. About the title, Lando says, “The wind is one’s soul. It represents the human spirit and the earth.” Lando Chill is a warrior-poet, a man with one ear to mother nature and one to the plight of humankind. Lando wants to bring the issues of political freedom, police brutality and giving a voice to marginalized communities to the national conversation. Inspired by the Paulo Coelho book, “The Alchemist,” Lando’s new album is about transformation, personally and spiritually. While working on the project, Lando gained a new perspective. He learned that having answers isn’t enough. Musically, this album is a movement forward from his previous work. Collaborating with producer Lasso, bassist Chris Pierce, as well as other key session musicians, the music is unique and intimate. The album harmonizes the internal and external in a cathartic symphony. The instrumentation is unlike anything else, sprawling from classic lo-fi hiphop to high production scoring. The album is as reminiscent of James Blake and Bon Iver as it is of Frank Ocean or Kendrick Lamar. “All is one and one is all. When you speak to your soul, you speak to the world. You speak through love and that’s how you transform.”
OBJECT AS SUBJECT is an LA-based art punk band led by classical violinist turned punk singer, Paris Hurley (composition, vox, drums, dance // Kultur Shock). This feminist battle cry is a call to action fueled by raw wailing vocals, a barrage of floor toms, gritty bass riffs, and exacting choreography that shifts from explicit gestural iterations to relentless phrases of wild abandon, featuring Emilia "Pony Sweat" Richeson (dance, drums, vox), Gina Young (bass, vox // SORORITY), Patty Schemel (drums // Hole), and Megan Fowler-Hurst (dance, drums, vox // Tales Between Our Legs). An irreverent choreographic and sonic ritual, their work is feral and unashamed, spilling from the stage with calculated bursts of irreligious rites. Their debut album, PERMISSION, is a ceremonial destruction of the myth that women exist in a scarcity-driven hierarchy and must make themselves small for the comfort of others; seen but not heard, useful without agency. Laced with hypnotic drones and lyrics tackling the catcalls of construction workers, the degradation of pussy, and the patriarchal pyramid scheme of catholicism that turns the sexuality of women into a sin, OAS weaves a punk incantation inviting audiences to turn inward, face yourself, free yourself, save yourself, revel in your joy, feel your sorrow, sweat out your fears, and scream your anger. PERMISSION out 8/17/18 on Lost Future.
