The Pretty Flowers
The Pretty Flowers
L.A. indie quartet the Pretty Flowers are days away from releasing their debut Why Trains Crash, twelve songs that are like Guided By Voices’ hi-fi power-pop and Mountain Goats-style poetic righteousness plus—at least on “Sitting Duck CA”—a little twin-engine Thin Lizzy guitar acrobatics, too. Think of it as literature at velocity, a rock ‘n’ roll tradition that goes back to bands like the Replacements and beyond. Why Trains Crash is out Fri., June 22, on Dirt Cult Records
Some Gifts
Three-piece Los Angeles band Some Gifts makes hook-y, energetic art-rock with alternative and punk influences.

The band formed in 2013 when singer/guitarist Vic Lazar (formerly of Buffalo, NY bands Patrons of Sweet and Knife Crazy) began jamming with drummer Steve Aguilera, who then recruited longtime friend and fellow musician Mike Jung for bass duty.
Some Gifts quickly began playing shows in Los Angeles and Orange County, and has since released two digital EPs: the debut All These Ghosts, and the followup System Failure EP.
The band has been featured on Thought Catalog as one of 6 Awesome Bands You Need to Know Now, was an Artist of the Month nominee in The Deli music magazine, and has been covered on music blogs including and Obscure Sound.
