OCTOBER 22: WILDCAT! WILDCAT! & SON OF CECIL
SON OF CECIL
Stirring up the Los Angeles local music scene and beyond, the indie pop trio WILDCAT! WILDCAT! is making a stop at the Barn after the release of their first, full-length album, No Moon At All. The trio, comprised of Jesse Taylor, Michael Wilson and Jesse Carmichael, has a clear talent for creating soundscapes of multilayered synth beats and rhythmic trills that are led by dual falsetto vocals. The result makes for contagious dance tunes that are best heard on repeat.
Although forming in 2012, WILDCAT! WILDCAT! has already toured extensively, including SXSW, a sold out west coast headlining run and major U.S. support slots with Alt-J and Portugal. The Man. Catch them while you can!
Local indie band, Son of Cecil, is set to appear after their release a new, full-length album entitled Group Therapy
. The band’s sound plays between deep bass lines and funky, up beat guitar riffs, complimented by thoughtful songwriting.
OCTOBER 29: THE ALBUM LEAF
THE ALBUM LEAF
The Album Leaf is the solo project of Jimmy LaValle, a San Diego-based songwriter who began recording solo material one year after forming the post-rock band Tristeza. Inspired by a number of genres – classical, jazz, and post-rock among them – LaValle constructed his own songs in a similarly eclectic manner, utilizing everything from ambient noise to field recordings to radio transmissions.
Jimmy LaValle has collaborated with an extensive cast of visual artists and musicians, including members of Sigur Rós and Sun Kil Moon, whom he produced the full-length album Perils of the Sea
with. The live performance is set to include a film.
