Come celebrate the release of XO’s new album, Wonder.
Limited edition cassette tapes will be available & come with a free Some Day EP CD.
Special guest DJs Cardigan & Emperor Tomato Ketchup spinning all your favorite records.
The shoegazing alternative rock band XO is composed of Jake Turner (bass/vocals), Jeff Turner (vocals/guitar), and Alan Connor (drums).
They came together in 2004 and found themselves in the American emo/pop punk scene by the next year, releasing demos like “Race Car” and “Stars” on the website’s PureVolume and MySpace. Jake and Jeff joined the band Say Anything as guitar and vocalists in 2005. They toured in support of the album, …Is A Real Boy all of 2006 and 2007.
The Some Day EP (2008) was recorded with Matt Malpass in Atlanta, Georgia during breaks in touring. XO self-released the EP on CD. Amy Fleisher from Fiddler Records / Animal Manufacturing Co. was taken by the EP. She released the “Blizzard (New York)” digital single late 2008 and rereleased the Some Day EP early 2009 with updated artwork. In late 2009 Animal Manufacturing Co. released The Tokyo Single which included remixes of the synth-heavy “My Beautiful Girl (Tokyo)” and unreleased/remastered demos “Friends” and “Tie Me Up”.
XO performed in the Atlanta area opening for Lydia, The Rocket Summer, and The Almost. Also performing several Atlanta-metro headlining shows with Red Sea, Small Reactions, and o’brother. Demoing for XO’s first album, Heart, began in 2011. The band relocated to Long Beach, California in 2012. New York’s Equal Vision Records / Rory Records signed XO after hearing the initial bedroom demos. The album was recorded at Hurley Recordings studio, Costa Mesa, California in 2012. Parker Case (Jamison Parker, Say Anything, Motion City Soundtrack) co-produced the 11 songs that make up their debut album, Heart. The sound incorporated reverb and delay, stacked vocals, lush guitars, doubled drums, and aimed at creating a Phil Spector worthy wall of sound.
The 7″ single “Fault/No Feeling” was released by Equal Vision Records/Rory Records on red/white swirl vinyl in 2013. XO’s debut album, Heart, was released on black vinyl, 500 pressed, in 2014 through Equal Vision Records/Rory Records. Los Angeles based label Touch Tapes pressed a limited edition 100 cassettes in 2015.
XO has performed extensively in Southern California with artists such as The Appleseed Cast, Froth, The Bilinda Butchers, Slumberland Record’s Sea Lions, Teenage Wrist, Burger Records/Lolipop Record’s Channel, Spindrift, topographies, and fellow shoegazers, Tennis System.
Demos for the bands second album were finished in 2015. In May 2016, XO entered the Hurley Recordings studio to track their follow up album, co-produced by Jon Berry (Rufio).
In October 2017 XO released a new song “TV You” under their own label, Twin Waves Records. July 2018 XO announced their release of their live in-studio recordings, PART TIME PUNKS Sessions, featuring four My Bloody Valentine covers and four originals, including one unreleased song. The sessions will be available as a limited edition cassette tape pressing of 100.
XO has a new album set for release on April 19th 2019.
Los Angeles duo TANGIENTS sound like a place “where post punk, shoegaze, and the dreamier side of elegant pop music meet” (Destroy//Exist). A two-sided enigma, a dichotomy, a shadow and its’ reflection. Maybe they have something to prove. Maybe they can’t decide if they’re a modern day post-punk outfit or an early-80s-inspired shoegaze dreamscape weavers. Maybe it doesn’t matter, because it hits.
Chelsea Ray’s intense, yet dream-like vocals can pierce as well as float over multi-instrumentalist Be Hussey’s thick wall of sonics. Hussey is a producer with vast recording and touring experience (GUIDES, radar bros.). Paired with Chelsea Ray’s “mystifying voice [that] has that haunting Björk timbre” (Turn Up The Volume), TANGIENTS is “ethereal bliss at its finest” (Magnetic Magazine). They will release their debut record in 2019.
The new single “Hazel” is many things at once. Menacing guitar noise and grinding bass meet polyrhythms that harken back to the original song, yet add a fresh take on this obscure classic. Not a tribute, but a re-imagined interpretation, boiled down to its essence then completely built up anew. The result is a sonic blast of driving beats and vocal beauty. “Hazel” is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, and all streaming services.
TANGIENTS will release their debut EP in 2019.
Los Angeles based three-piece post-punk/ slow-core outfit consisting of singer/bassist Mony Katz, singer/guitarist Cole Devine, and drummer Sage Ross. The band combines their artistic sensibilities to foster a dark ethereal, and sonically-mature post-punk trio that offers smooth-driving drum and bass tempos, with catchy guitar loops and riffs. Gold Cage is sure to warm your heart with fog, and clouds.
The first Saturday there will be blues and soul. Come join Boxcar 7 the first Saturday of each month at The Kobe Steak House in Seal Beach, CA. Recently voted Best Of Long Beach by the Long Beach Post for the second time! Come dance the night away and find out why!
