Miracle Days record release party
Miracle Days record release party
Miracle Days is a experimental folk duo from Los Angeles. Influenced by artists like Harry Nilsson, The Carpenters and Os Mutantes, vocalist/violinist Dre Babinski and guitarist/producer Edson Choi have pulled from such eclectic influences to create songs described as "gossamer trails of light, a suspension of all weight... like streaking airplanes cutting through the sky at 45 degree angles, in pedestrian speed." (Sean Moeller, Daytrotter)

Assisted by Dr.Dog personnel in Philadelphia, the band recorded a contemplative debut record with an adventurous pulse; a mix of bossa inspired melancholy, off-the-cuff songwriting and anxiety filled sweetness. The album, Something For The Weight, is now available on vinyl and digitally on iTunes.

Taylor Dexter, the 23-year-old drummer for fast-rising L.A. rock bands Hunter Hunted and Body Parts, is in the driver's seat for Air Life, singing and playing guitar. Dexter has been widely praised as one of L.A.'s best young drummers. But in Air Life, Dexter joins forces with Vicky Nguyen (keys), Brad Babinsk (bass)i, and Brijesh Pandya (drums), to bring some soul music to Silver Lake and beyond.

On their debut single "Tell Me Anything," with its water-tight soul-jazz groove and unforgettable chorus, Air Life prove themselves to be gifted students of Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan, and the song has obvious parallels to contemporaries Hiatus Kaiyote, Toro y Moi and Robert Glasper.

"Tell Me Anything" will be available in April of 2014.
Sympathetic Frequencies

“When this band started I was in the middle of a total freak out about whether or not guitar was still relevant. It sounds crazy now after spending the last couple years working with this band and making guitar driven music that I love, but at the time I was seriously at a loss for what to do.”

In the aftermath of the break up of his previous band, Intricate Machines, Sympathetic Frequencies singer and guitarist Trevor O’Neill was searching for a new direction. “So much of what my friends and I were listening to at that moment had zero guitar in it, and I just felt like no one wanted to hear it.”

Luckily, in the midst of this confusion, Trevor walked into a Seattle hotel lobby and found himself face to face with Annie Clark of St. Vincent fame. “She probably doesn’t remember it, but that brief conversation and the show she played that night changed everything for me.” Clark’s Seattle performance made one thing very clear to Trevor: rock guitar is not going anywhere. “I left that show on a total high and ready to dive back into guitar head first.”

Trevor started writing immediately and recruited long time collaborator Daniel Berkman (guitar/harmony) who relocated from Portland to LA to join the project. The two put a band together and recorded The Possible Oceans EP, through which they refined their signature sound defined by forward thinking guitar work, booming percussion and soulful harmony.

The band recently began work on a follow-up EP with Eric Palmquist producing (The Mars Volta, Dot Hacker, Mr. Little Jeans).

Sympathetic Frequencies is:
Brian Henspeter (drums), Daniel Berkman (guitar and vocals), Josh Nyback (bass) and Trevor O’Neill (guitar and vocals).
