TONIGHT: OV + The Echo Present HOTT MT / Mt. Ossa @ The Echoplex!
At the top of the bill, HOTT MT is an Origami favorite ever since we released their collaborative single with Wayne Coyne in '12. Now touring on the release of their new album I Made This, they'll be throwing down pop grooves all night long! Here's what The Echo has had to say about the group:
"International sensation HOTT MT (Hour Of The Time Majesty Twelve), is an experimental post-pop collective based in Los Angeles, CA. HOTT MT is the result of an ongoing curiosity project between Queen Ashi Dala and Spooky Tavi, which expanded to include multi-instrumentalist Bahd Bad in December of 2011, and guitarist Guitty Dryver and drummer Chairman Towel in early 2012. Thoughts and anxieties about myth, experience, conspiracy theories, and Thailand fuel the groups explorations.
HOTT MT's debut LP “I Made This” was released in May, and they recently completed work w/ The Flaming Lips on a Stone Roses cover album (release TBD). Live highlights include shows supporting Bat For Lashes, Wavves, Frightened Rabbit, Ra Ra Riot, Django Django, Robert DeLong, Hands, and The Flaming Lips, including their Guinness World Record setting event."
And here's what The Echo has to say about openers MT. OSSA:
"We make music in a way that makes us happy. We are writers, watchers, painters and listeners. We come together to bring our ideas into the light. MT. OSSA is our music and we are proud of it. People have called our music anything from surf rock and psych-pop, to dream disco and soul fuzz; we're okay with that. We're okay with presenting to the observer an opportunity to imagine and experience. Ever expanding, and limitless is who we are. Loving what we do is not hard. Color and light and shapes and terrestrial bodies are all things that inspire us, but our love for music is what drives us to be MT. OSSA."
Other openers include Fever the Ghost & J. Laser! Quite the bill isn't it? So forget the lame daylight and come party with us all night at the Echoplex! Show starts at 8:30!
