Papa

There’s a poetic purity that runs through the songs of PAPA, suggesting devious truths and well told lies, rolling along with a natural swagger that thoughtlessly evokes hard-hitting shakes and slow-swinging shimmies. Darren Weiss’ earnest vibrato often takes on a Springsteen-like growl in its best moments, crooning reminiscences on “I Am The Lion King” when he sings, “I got to make a you a woman/You got to make me a man.” In each song’s groove there’s a dangerous sexiness to PAPA-the furious grip of the dance floor, the cold pavement outside, and the way you kiss when you’re not sure you’ll ever see the person again or whether you’d even want to.

No

LA’s Echo Park neighborhood has a lot of bands living in its hills, but none of them sound anything like NO. The band pits frontman Bradley Hanan Carter’s baritone against mesmerizing drumming and richly textured guitar, bass and keyboard to create complex and atmospheric melodies that mine the same musical vein as Arcade Fire. (Time Magazine)

LA Font

LA Font (pronounced like “elephant”) is an indie rock band from the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The quartet is often compared to Pavement for Danny Bobbe’s sincere but barbed lyrics and the band’s scrappy garage rock arrangements. Bobbe’s charismatic, sneering live performance persona has also earned the band recognition, with the L.A. Times writing that he is “a frontman worth the cost of admission alone.”
