DAVE & PHIL ALVIN
DAVE & PHIL ALVIN
“Lost time is not found again.” This ancient idiom is at the heart of brothers Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin’s long, tumultuous relationship. However, in Dave’s own words, “Sometimes Fate, or God or the Universe, gives you a rare chance to prove an old saying is wrong.” The brothers’ new album, appropriately titled ‘Lost Time’ (September 18/Yep Roc Records), does just that. Listen to lead track “World’s In A Bad Condition” now via the Wall Street Journal: http://on.wsj.com/1NgR2Wx

Over ‘Lost Time’s’ twelve tracks, Dave and Phil pay homage to a number of artists and songs that had an early, formative influence, in Dave’s words “the masters of the Blues, the most transcendental form of American music.” Everyone from Lead Belly to James Brown is represented, but the figure who looms largest on the album, and in the brothers’ own musical journey, is Big Joe Turner. The Alvins met Big Joe as teenagers, and he would mentor them for the remainder of his life. They remain his humble students, and cut four Turner songs for ‘Lost Time.’

If their GRAMMY-nominated 2014 album ‘Common Ground’ was the sound of a partnership rekindled, ‘Lost Time’ is a four-alarm fire. Dave’s guitar work slithers and stings as never before, and Phil’s feral howl cuts to the core. Dave and Phil both sing and play guitar throughout ‘Lost Time,’ and are joined by a crack band including Lisa Pankratz (drums), Brad Fordham (bass), and Chris Miller (guitar).

The Alvin brothers founded seminal early LA punk roots band The Blasters in 1979, and after Dave left the group in 1986, they did not record an album together again until ‘Common Ground.’ In addition to its Grammy nomination, that record earned wide critical acclaim, and features with NPR’s Fresh Air, The LA Times, Wall Street Journal and more.
THE GUILTY ONES
THE GUILTY ONES
WITNESS!! The Guilty Ones!!!!! Liv, Jo, Oded and Manuel revivify the best of 60’s and 70’s and modern psychedelic pop rock riddims, producing a unique and adventurous musical melange with a sound all of its own. Liv's voice will sweep through your soul; mellisonant, mellifluous; infused with amatory yearning; you’d follow her words down the darkest backstreet. They call, they promise, they deliver. The Guilty Ones are the musical superlative.

Their first single called "All There Is", produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild, Telegraphs) is already available for sale and download on itunes and amazon, followed by a second single "Dance With You" produced by Dave Eringa and Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight, The Kooks).
DEAD ROCK WEST
DEAD ROCK WEST
The world of Dead Rock West is a place where perfectly pitched harmonies tug at your heart strings and grainy guitar solos serenade your soul. Seamlessly merging together sounds of rock with dashes of garage, power-pop jangle and the weep of country, Dead Rock West transcend being labeled as one genre and instead, create a kaleidoscope of sounds as bold and daring as they are soft and warm.
