Haunted Summer crafts languid pop music, adorned with orchestral strings and electronic textures that recall Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips.-Candice Aman (KXSC Radio)
Their brand of dream pop feels timeless, with just the right amount of youthful nostalgia to woo your ears into submission. Moody’s smooth, light as air vocals captivate like a siren of the sea, while the arrangements are lush and seductive, but never pushy. It’s a delightful combination that has the power to fill any lazy summer day with an extra bit of magic. -Jacqueline Caruso (The National Deli Magazine)
There’s no question that whatever is haunting Moody and Seasons is steering the duo toward a beautiful place. -Kevin Bronson (Buzzbands LA)
Windswept vocals, sultry strings and spacey guitar blend together beautifully. The whole thing is mysterious and engrossing enough that it gets under your skin and stirs your own private nostalgia. -Billy Gil (Amoeba Blog)
After the demise of his LA-based band Mississippi Man in late 2010, Southern California native Luke Messimer packed his things and travelled North for Seattle. After a short stint as a keyboardist for a promising local singer/songwriter and a falling out between bandmates, Luke headed for a family cabin the woods of Northern Arizona where he began to write and record his own music for the first time in over a year. Knowing that he wanted to stay solo, Luke decided to not use other musicians on the record and play everything himself in order to keep it as honest and true as possible. When searching for a name, the phrase "Northern Youth" constantly flashed in Luke's mind when he was living in Seattle. It was a feeling of creativity and childlike freedom. It only seemed right to name his new project after that feeling. Now, back in LA, Northern Youth has a backing band of 6 incredible musicians, a debut album out Fall 2012, promising local shows, and an extensive West Coast tour planned for January, 2013. Luke looks forward to meeting you all on the road.
On their forthcoming album, "The Hoss, The Candle," White Dove's delicate and haunting songs, find a more celestial and hazy sound. Shedding their former name Monster, a monicker founder Alex Johnstone has carried since highschool, 2012 finds White Dove completing their first fully collaborative album at Kingsize Sound Labs in Los Angeles with producer Dave Trumfio. Multi-instrumentalist Jack Long and bassist Carl Harders joined Johnstone in 2009 for a tour of France in support of a 2005 self-titled LP. Originally released on The New Black, and repressed by Le Jardin Collectif, this album drew comparisons to Mojave 3, Galaxie 500, Big Star and Cat Power. "The Hoss, The Candle" again puts Johnstone's voice and songwriting front and center, this time supported by the melodically spry guitar lines of Long and the cool bass lines of Harders. Keyboards and pedal steel round out the record, an album that reflects the groups interest in 60s and 70s rock à la Fleetwood Mac and late era Beach Boys with hints of cosmic American music.
What started as a noise letter to a friend in 1995, Tenlons Fort has become a four album song cycle of musician, writer, director, artist and human rights activist Jack Gibson. The latest release Shelters LP consists of ten songs, an equal number of paintings. After years of following the melancholic muse resulting in the first three releases The Golden Handshake, Followed By Bad Luck and Forever is a Long Time, Tenlons Fort replaces the meditations of death and doom, with tales of wisdom, patience, and clarity without leaving the emotional territory that has made him an underground favorite since 2005.
