Holy Oak engages through storytelling on upcoming LP Second Son

Folk singer songwriter Neil Holyoak, better known as Holy Oak, makes you feel something, even when you don’t want to. The musician sets a tone for his newest single, "Isabelle," from the first few strums of his guitar. Through his gentle voice and soulful acoustics, he brings out a story within you that probably isn’t too hard to trace back. Holy Oak sings about remembrance, time passing and things changing, “…missing people who have gone while also being grateful for their presence in my life.” His warm, full circle approach to music casts a nostalgic sense of closure that you can’t seem to reach. It’s interesting that two points can be so close together, but so far apart all at once.

Neil Holyoak is a one of kind folk and country singer, and he isn’t to be passed up. Keep an eye out for their newest album, Second Son, out this June. - Kayla Hay

Artist to Watch: Shit Giver

The artful dynamics of trio Shit Giver leave an indelible impact. On their debut full-length, entitled ...Life, the band's knotty guitar lines and undulating bass grooves propel forward with an urgency that sounds like a more refined take on hardcore punk. Led by Preston Mendell's mirthless sing-speak, there's an assaulting intensity to their cutting fury that does seek to modernize the post-collegiate malaise of early to mid-nineties post-punk. It's a remarkable step forward from their promising demo recordings, as it perfectly exemplifies how they direct that raw vitriol with a trenchant intelligence that cannot be ignored.

...Life is out now on their official bandcamp page. Though they're currently touring the Pacific Northwest, Shit Giver will be back soon to play a hometown show at the Bootleg on July 15.

Cameo: More than just a free monthly party in Los Angeles

Through the enduring chatter of collective club nights and warehouse afterhours, the monthly installation Cameo—spun together by Sophia Kuhn, Isaac Treece, and Matt Dell—is among the newcomer parties catching waves for its expansive tastes and deep cuts. Their February inauguration event caught fire at the dim-lit General Lee's tucked inside Gin Ling Way, an alley known for its high-end lowbrow galleries and low-end highbrow parties. And despite being in its infancy—the collective is just getting a third show under its belt—Cameo’s sets by past selectors like SWISHA, Swan Meat, and MARAL have already cemented a reputation for bringing diverse and irresistible music to the greying quietude of Chinatown, crossing through territories of pop, experimental, ambient, jungle, 90s freestyle UK bass, dembow, footwork, bailefunk, and kuduro. For the jaded post-psych youth and the displaced club kids, it’s a godsend, but for the organizers and the artists, it’s just a free weeknight party.

This Wednesday, Cameo’s third free pop-up arrives to the Grand Star Jazz Club with Mess Kid, Helikonia, Habibiboi, E**N (Chicago), and a special b2b set with Matthew and Bapari (moon casual, Laza Records), with live visual accompaniments by Nick Zhu, Tea Strazicic, and Camille Lacadee.

Suss it out and watch for their collaboration with labels Juke Bounce Werk and Mall Music Inc. featuring DJ Paypal, DJ Orange Julius, and DJ Mastercard at UNION on 6/29. - Ryan Mo, flyer by Caleb Ali Miller

Riot pop duo WASI release empowering new EP Coup

Merilous Salazar and Jessie Meehan have found a new way to present their musical talent to their fans, through female liberation and pop-punk vibrations. The duo’s newest EP, entitled Coup, has stirred some empowering musical tastes. The riot pop group has been promoting feminist and LGBTQ rights for awhile now, and with all the commotion in the past few months, it seems only right to give these kick-ass females some recognition in the music community. In a time when women are silenced as a whole, it feels damn good to be spoken for by the “pussy grabs back liberation”.

Get empowered and go find WASI at the Asian Pacific Heritage Month Showcase in LA on May 24.
