Dead Meadow
Dead Meadow
Dead Meadow formed in 1998 with Jason Simon on vocals and guitar, Steve Kille on bass, and Mark Laughlin on drums. They began to combine 70s hard rock and 60s psychedelic rock with far out and sometimes mystically minded lyrical themes occasionally even hinting at the obscure genius H. P. Lovecraft and other far out writers of the bizarre and weird.[1] The first album, Dead Meadow, was released in 2000 on Tolotta Records, a label run by Fugazi bassist Joe Lally. The LP version was released by Planaria Records. This was quickly followed by 2001's Howls from the Hills, also released on Tolotta Records. At the completion of "Howls from the Hills" John Peel asked Dead Meadow to record a Peel Session which was recorded in Fugazi's home studio, the first time a Peel Session was recorded outside the BBC studios.[1]

In Spring 2002, Laughlin parted ways with the band in order to pursue a career as a lawyer. He was replaced by long-time friend Stephen McCarty ). A live album, Got Live If You Want It, was released in mid-2002, which documented one of the last shows with drummer Mark and was produced by Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre. In early 2003 the band signed with Matador Records and released Shivering King and Others. Along with the heavy song and blues-influenced songs as on the previous two records, the band continued in their psychedelic style, with acoustic elements and ballads. With the addition of second guitarist Cory Shane, Feathers was released in 2005. Simon's guitar virtuosity is influenced by the droning modal character of Eastern music as by classic rock riffs.

Jason Simon is the nephew of The Wire creator David Simon. Dead Meadow's music was used briefly in the episode React Quotes in season five of The Wire.

In 2007 the band has reverted back to a three piece, made an appearance at the 5th annual Green Man Festival in Crickhowell, Wales and relocated from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California.

In the beginning of 2008, Dead Meadow released Old Growth on Matador Records. A collection of songs that brought the band back initially to the same farm that their second release Howls from the Hills was created and eventually finished up at the legendary Sunset Sound studio in Los Angeles. As with the last three albums Old Growth was produced by bassist Steve Kille.

Later in that same year a brief session with Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother led to the reinterpretation of the Dead Meadow song "Everything's Goin' On" as a new song "Pilgrim" landing on the second release for Wolfmother, "Cosmic Egg".

In March 2010 the band released a feature length live film and soundtrack, "Three Kings", that spotlights their stage show along with psychedelic dream scenarios. The live footage and audio was captured at the bombastic final show of the five month "Old Growth" tour. The film premiered at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California[2] and was released on the NYC label Xemu Records, co-run by Kille.

Jason Simon also announced his September release of his first solo "self-titled" acoustic album on TeePee Records.

The song "Sleepy Silver Door" and "Greensky Greenlake" were featured in the skate video "Emerica, Stay Gold."
Matt Hollywood & The Bad Feelings
Matt Hollywood & The Bad Feelings
Beginning in 1991 with infamous psych-rock provocateurs The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Matt Hollywood has trodden many musical paths over the last two and a half decades. From deceptively accessible BJM standouts like Not If You Were The Last Dandy On Earth and Maybe Tomorrow, to the tripped-out folk pop of The Out Crowd, and the hazy elegance of Rebel Drones, Hollywood's songwriting has wandered through multiple genres, the playful experimentation always grounded in a core of earnest emotion. Drawing on such diverse influences as Cohen, Hazlewood, Morricone, Gainsbourg, and classic blues and country, Hollywood is returning to the road with music from his upcoming WavePOP Records release, as well as some old favorites and never-heard-live rarities.
Ancient Warlocks
Ancient Warlocks
Ancient Warlocks are a band from Seattle, WA. that has been steadily building both it's sound, and fan base, since their first live show in November of 2010. Their primary focus is the groove, more than anything, and all of the other ingredients are a response to that. The vocals, the guitar sounds, the whole band's sound, the riffing, all of it.
Low Hums
Low Hums
Low Hums are Jonas Haskins, Miles Panto, Bill Patton, Mike Bayer and Chris Early. They mostly live in the south side of Seattle. An area famous for it's industrialization and pollution, the boys have taken full advantage of the available infrastructure. And in so doing, have crafted and boiled down many nights of free form freakout into a concise 45 minutes of pure guava, or as it appears in the vinyl form, pure bolivian emeralds. But this isn't just music/magic for you Zappa heads, there are some real pop gems in there.
It was somewhere said, that after a horrible, sold out SXSW appearance gone totally wrong, the band regrouped, and decided that they should write songs like this. The music of Low Hums, somewhere out there in the oceans of psychedelic // rock and roll // pop // twang. Whatever that means to you. Usually 'rock and roll' works just fine.
Started in 2009, Low Hums have to date released two full length LP's. The second LP appropriately titled 'Charm'. Is out on the now R.I.P FIN Records, August 15th 2014. (( remember the bolivian emeralds right?? )).
Low Hums have toured several times around the West, Southwest, Midwest ( and maybe more ) and have been blessed to share a stage on occasion with the likes of Earth, Mt. Eerie, Kinski, Six Organs of Admittance, The Entrance Band, Rose Windows, Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers, Chelsea Wolfe, Master Musicians of Bukkake, Jesse Sykes, rowdy country bands, Midday Veil, Diminished Men .. Played everywhere from campfires, festivals, clubs, pubs, garages, parking lots, churches, parties, bbq's, big weird buildings, beaches, high deserts, burrito shops, and yes, even down town LA.
