Spare Parts for Broken Hearts is a melodic, 3 piece, Alternative/Grunge band fronted by vocalist/ guitar player, Sarah Green (SG). In 2010, SG returned to Los Angeles from a summer touring with the Van's Warped tour and founded SP/BH in a downtown rehearsal space. They are expected to release new music, fall of 2018.
2013, The Electric West formed in Los Angeles' beautiful downtown Echo Park. Forging an outlet inside famed Bedrock Studios, the post-punk trio combined Pagdilao's pummeling dance beats with punctuated melodies and Lewallen’s sympathetic crooning between alternating currents of contemporary political angst and a cold, metallic stare at our nation’s past. Intensely charged, these tracks channel gripping themes—Manifest Destiny, Salem witch burnings, and even meta-fictitious graphic novelizations—to create a raucous source of inspiration for fans of Dead Kennedys, Gang of Four, and David Bowie. Following their first tour of the West Coast, and a week of SXSW, The Electric West co-released their 4 song EP, "Verdugo" on tape, CD, and a very limited run of 7" records with friends Future Force Records. The Electric West is Lee Lewallen, Byron Pagdilao, and Billy The Kid.
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.
