KSCR Presents Asura and Shlohmo Live in the Loft TONIGHT at 7pm!

Our friends at KSCR are putting on another Summer Series Show here at OV with the gorgeous beat-hop of Asura and Shlohmo. If you aren't familiar with either of these acts, you will be soon!

"Asura is a gorgeous new project from LA's Ryan York, set-up to explore Kenji Miyazawa's concept of the same name, exploring the dissolution of self and environment in the face of strong emotion. York works within this remit to produce thirteen tracks of detailed ambient drift and pulsing electronics reminiscent of everyone from Boards of Canada to Blue Daisy. 'Asura' is structured as a continuous blend of tracks intended for involved consumption, subliminally shifting from gravelly digital textures to sweeping post-electronic statements like 'Asura II' via mindswells of heavenly harmonics recalling classic BoC and folksy jazz fusioneering like Bibio. York craftily uses his hi-end digital manipulations and modern classical leanings to lend a rich seam of human warmth and emotion that gives the set an abstracted but tangible thread of narrative which we think will appeal to many of you. Gorgeous music." - Boomkat

"LA native Henry Laufer may be a young fella, but the 19-year-old producer, better known as Shlohmo, has rocketed on to our radar screen in recent months with his lo-fi, psychedelic mix of abstract hip-hop, dubstep-flavored wonk, bouncy synth-funk, breezy trip-hop, and what sounds like lost gems from the mid-'90s Mo' Wax catalog."

Tonight @ 7pm! Gemma Ray Live in the Loft!

Sultry English crooner Gemma Ray has slowly been casting a strange spell on the indie powers-that-be since the release of her 2008 album The Leader. Her second album, Lights Out Zoltar! (2009) was named for the fortune-telling dummy inside electronic psychic reading boxes on piers and arcades, and took on mysticism, science and old-timey magic as it comes at you through flickering images from a scratched black-and-white news reel. Her songs manage to hark back to a time you remember but certainly weren't fully alive to. It's the well-trotted paradox of the uncanny: the familiar and yet foreign. Somehow Gemma Ray pulls it off, crafting work that is both indie in its aesthetic but loungey in feel. - Nikki Darling (LA Weekly)

Live in the Loft tonight at 7pm!

Michael Nhat + Lil' Whup + Moses Campbell

Tonight, in the Origami Loft, this unholy trio of power will throw caution to the wind and attempt to cross the streams. We don't know what's going to happen but we're a little a good way. The world just might end tonight so let's go out with a bang...oh and some music! Oblivion begins at 6pm.

Michael Nhat
I read somewhere that he wants to show people “what the music of a post-Vietnam War orphan would be like.” But Michael Nhat’s debut LP sounds more Angelino than Vietnamese, with humorous non-sequiturs, pent-up hostilities, portraits of hipster chicks, and admonitions about werewolves rapped and sung over tracks that sound like they were sampled right out of the air in Filipinotown or the less gentrified parts of Echo Park. Featuring catchy lo-fi looping keyboards, Nhat’s minimal beats propel his brutal, barking cadence towards something that is alternately poppy (”Everybody Knows Werewolves Kill”) and disconcerting (”Death by Bells”). Yet his charm has much to do with his unparalleled charisma in a live setting. A musical movement unto himself, he’s got this “I don’t give a fuck” attitude that is only foiled by the obvious care and commitment that he puts into his performances. - LA Record

Big Whup
The beginnings of Big Whup could be considered original, dainty and quirky, just fitting this band. Big Whup members Drew Denny [keys, vox] and Morgan Gee [viola, violin, saw, vox] started playing music together during the summer of 2007 when they were in EMT school and wanted “to make songs about defibrillators and seeing double rainbows”. Both Drew and Morgan had always dreamed of being in a band but both were too shy and critical about themselves. It wasn’t until they realized, while in EMT school, that if they had the daring to save lives that starting a band wouldn’t be as difficult, or unnerving. Rand Voorhies [drums, vox] and Jenna Eyrich [bass, vox] later joined and the name Big Whup was chosen. After a few lineup changes, Geoff Geis [guitar, vox] jumped in on guitar a bit before Big Whup’s first recordings in the summer of 2008; shortly thereafter, he also began to bring some of his songs to the band. With matching tattoos done in 2009, they’ve been the five together ever since. - Little Did They Know blog

Moses Campbell
Teenage wunderkinds Moses Campbell — it’s a six-piece band, not some grizzled folk singer that the name might conjure up — seem to have bottled up the exuberance of youth and the dreariness of aging on one calamitous album. “Who Are You? Who Is Anyone?” (just out on the Smell’s olFactory Records) embraces the present as only kids can but also reinforces the notion that the best way to eye the future is to cast wary glances over one’s shoulder. Singer-guitarist Sean Solomon’s woozy tenor is perfect for such musings, and the sextet (including Pascal Stevenson, Miles Wintner, Daniela Jiminez, Pauline Lay and Andrew MacKelvie) frames them in bursts of unvarnished garage-pop, frayed folk and caffeine-spiked freakouts. You might have heard some of these chords before, but as playdough in the cherubic hands of Moses Campbell, it’s fun to see what shapes they can become. - BuzzBands

Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout in-store

Tonight in our loft we have Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout bringing you their magic & mayhem all the way from Tucson, AZ.

The carnivalesque brainfreeze that is Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout can rarely be contained to the restraints of a traditional stage. Often, Mr. Free’s safest performance space is inside the confines of a modified school bus. Keep your ears & eyes open for the experimental prog-rock of Satellite Freakout, who may or may not draw inspiration from early Oingo Boingo, Yes, Rush, G.G. Allin, Frank Zappa and the trashiest lingerie your Goodwill has to offer. If you've got free time tonight give it to these will be worth your while.

Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout play at 7pm.

Origami Vinyl Set to Release It's First LP with Silver Lake Indie Band Summer Darling on July 6th!


Walking the line of pop music and aggressive experimentation, Silver Lake-based indie rockers Summer Darling’s eponymous debut full-length album will be released July 6 on Origami Vinyl. Marking the inaugural vinyl release for Echo Park’s premier vinyl only record shop, the album will also be released digitally for free via Summer Darling's Bandcamp page. The band will parade their impressive new material throughout the month of July with a hometown residency each Monday night at Spaceland in Los Angeles. They will be joined by a slew of local acts including Eastern Conference Champions, Twilight Sleep, Kissing Cousins, Wait.Think.Fast., TS and the Past Haunts (ex-Piebald) and many others.

Several years in the making, this album heralds a new chapter for the foursome who has seen its share of struggle and tragedy over the last few years. Alcoholism, divorce, interstate moves, and a number of family deaths have all contributed to the creation of the album, and the result is a record that is both devastatingly personal and musically complex. Summer Darling revel in challenging the listener with a myriad of time signatures, interlacing guitar parts, and bombastic drumming all the while showcasing their pop sensibilities with hook laden vocal melodies.

This is clearly evident on standout track “Carving Letters,” which showcases husband and wife Ben Heywood (vocals/guitar) and Heather B. Heywood’s (vocals/bass) engaging melodic chemistry as their voices unite over a bed of nimble math rock-like guitars and a clattering beat. Album starter, “This Would Be The Time,” lays down what could be a blueprint for the record and as LA Weekly describes it “opens with Ben Heywood’s and Dan Rossiter’s majestic interlocking guitars, as the former intones in a hazy, haunted voice. Even as the guitars ratchet up the chaos, Heywood remains coolly somber underneath it all.”

The son of pastors in suburban California, Summer Darling was started after Ben graduated with a degree in English and Creative Writing, as an outlet to come to grips with his dissolving faith and darkening worldview. His wife, Heather, who also fronts the Richard Swift-produced band Kissing Cousins, was raised the daughter of Pentecostal ministers in Alabama and experienced a similar rebellion when she began playing in bands. Together the couple not only found solace in each other but along with guitarist Dan Rossiter and drummer Todd Spitzer have been experiencing musical catharsis.

Summer Darling has played extensively throughout the West Coast since 2003 and this year will be bringing their new album and impassioned live show to the national stage, following their residency next month. Currently, the band is working with a host of local artists and directors including Karla Carnewal, Joshua Locy, Souther Salazar, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Christopher Batty to create music videos for every song on the album.

TONIGHT! The Young Veins "Take A Vacation" Record Release Party @ 7pm

Tonight Origami Vinyl is hosting an exclusive in-store with The Young Veins to celebrate their debut album "Take A Vacation" out on One Haven Music! In order to attend you must have pre-ordered the album, but good news, we still have spaces left!

Primarily the musical project of Ryan Ross and Jon Walker from Panic! At The Disco, The Young Veins formed when their songwriting began to progress beyond Panic’s signature style. Take A Vacation!, produced by Alex Greenwald (Phantom Planet) and Rob Mathes (Panic!, Carly Simon, Lou Reed), is an album that re-imagines some of the most enduring musical styles of the ‘60s, including surf rock, psychedelia and brit-pop. Laced in a dreamy California spirit, Take A Vacation! exudes warmth and joyful energy. The band will hit the road in mid-June for their Bonnaroo debut and a national summer tour with Rooney, but first, they will be marking their record release with this special album release party and in-store performance in the town they now call home.

Tonight We Debut Our New Weekly Night POST- at The Griffin!

Sean and I met about 13 years ago. We both were playing in bands at the time and both were totally geeked about the same kind of music. Most of what we listened to at the time could be classified as Post-Hardcore and Post-Punk. It was this kind of music that led us to form a new band together in 1997 named after the bass player of Jawbox, K Coletta. The band didn't last long, but after all these years, Sean and I still consider these genres along with Post-Metal and Post-Rock to be amongst our favorites and is essentially what shaped both of our interests in collecting records.

If you aren't familiar with any of these genres you may be familiar with some of the bands. Post-Punk was a term coined in the late 70's in reference to Public Image Ltd. The genre also expanded to refer to other bands like Factory Records' Joy Division, The Durutti Column, and A Certain Ratio as well as 4AD bands like Bauhaus, Dead Can Dance, and Cocteau Twins. Other bands that were deemed Post-Punk included Siouxsie and the Banshees, Gang of Four, The Raincoats, The Fall, Magazine, and Talking Heads. Post-punk was also a big influence on what later became labeled as Alternative music and bands like The Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Lush.

Post-Hardcore came around in the mid to late eighties and was directly affiliated with the Hardcore Punk movement but had a bit of experimental rock and noise thrown in. Bands like Fugazi, Big Black, Unwound, Minutemen, Quicksand, and Refused.

Post-Rock emerged in the mid-nineties and generally describes instrumental rock music that included experimental rhythms and chord progressions. Some of the pioneers of this sound include Tortoise, Slint, and Stereolab and go on to describe the sounds of bands like Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and Sigur Ros.

Post-Metal is an extension of Post-Rock but taking on the more aggressive chord and rhythms of heavy metal. Local labels like Southern Lord and Hydra Head specialize in this type of music and include bands like Pelican, Neurosis, Sunn O))), and Russian Circles.

Starting tonight and continuing every Monday night thereafter at The Griffin, Sean and I will be playing some of our favorite records from these POST- genres. We will also invite a different guest each week starting with our good friend Jesse Obstbaum from LA's Fine Records. Details to the event are in the flier below.

Hope to see you tonight or for a future Monday!

Hot Hot Heat Tonight!!

As a part of their undeniably welcome assault on the Los Angeles area Hot Hot Heat will be taking over our loft for the evening as we welcome their new album "Future Breeds" out on Dangerbird Records.

On Future Breeds, Hot Hot Heat returns to its roots both metaphorically and literally with a hot-wired and proud party album throbbing with spontaneity and creativity. When the band began writing Future Breeds, front man Steve Bays, along with band mates Paul Hawley and Luke Paquin, sought to recapture the energy and sheer love for the art form that drove the late-nineties Vancouver punk scene from which the band emerged. From the rebelliously gleeful and catchy hooks on '21@12', to the reinvented ska echoes on 'Goddess on the Prairie' to the moody electro-pop on 'Future Breeds', the record offers an adventurous and invigorating collection of tracks that spotlight the band’s distinctive sound and particular talent of creating brilliantly flawed music. - KCRW

HHH plays at 7pm and I know I don't have to tell you twice how amazing this will be. Come shake your ass!

Painted Hills in the loft TONIGHT + New Adds & Restocks

Tonight we are excited to present to you Josh Schwartz (whom you might know from Beachwood Sparks) in his new outing Painted Hills.

Singer-guitarist Josh Schwartz’s solo project (formerly known as Bolero) splashes down with a well-crafted batch of paisley psych-pop that feels like the soundtrack to the best possible hippie dream. Schwartz, who has played in Beachwood Sparks, Further and the Tyde and has toured with John Cale and the Charlatans UK’s Tim Burgess, is joined here by Joe Bourdet, Jon Leahy and Richard Gowen, among others. The result is classic Laurel Canyon-meets-dreampop, drenched in melody, dripping with reverb, seasoned with twang and tasty harmonies. The double-vinyl version of the album includes covers of songs by Emitt Rhodes and Rain Parade. If only psych-pop’s past always sounded this fresh. - Buzzbands

Origami Vinyl presents Paper Crème @ The Short Stop - 9pm Tonight + XL Recordings / Holy Fuck Takeover at 9pm!!!

The Delta Mirror + Franco Near Death in the OV loft TONIGHT SUCKAS!!!

Tonight at 7pm The Delta Mirror, along with friends Franco Near Death, are taking over our loft to trip out your minds and overwhelm your hearts. All this in support of their new full length "Machines That Listen" on Lefse Records.

The Delta Mirror is a cocktail of all your past loves, the ones you wish had stuck around, and check up on from time to time even though you’ve moved on. They were made from the sprained fingers and broken records of mid 90’s hip hop. They were made from the bent circuits of electronica, dead IDM lap tops and broken shoegaze strings. They were made from the injured spirit of a folk singer’s broken heart. Alongside bands like The Big Pink and The Fuck Buttons, The Delta Mirror sees the things that made our past relationships work and brings them together creating the ideal love. Craig Gordon and David Bolt started out as a hip hop two piece in the late 90’s and have been writing music in some form ever since. With the addition of Karrie K on bass, their sound has progressed to an ambient mix of shoegazey guitar and gothic vocals, but their production has held onto the same boom bap button pushing they started with. Machines That Listen is The Delta Mirror’s debut long play. Each song on this 9 track collection is a story that takes place in a different room of a hospital. Listening to this record is like walking through the halls of Bellevue or Cedars Sinai listening to a score that is re-written daily. - Lefse Records

Come grab a copy of their debut and support this fantastic local band.
