Gothic Tropic refine their unruly pop songcraft at The Teragram Ballroom

Gothic Tropic have been poised for a breakthrough for far too long. But lead songwriter Cecilia Della Peruti seems unconcerned with the prospect, possessing a maturity in her unruly pop songs that reveals her growth as an artist. Peruti has joined Northern England post-punk revival veterans Maxïmo Park for two nights in California, starting with LA’s very own Teragram Ballroom, where her minty Stratocaster set forth a commanding weave of staccato lines that fall somewhere between lavish psych rock and clean, yet amped up notes à la Lindsey Buckingham.

Peruti applies her very own technique on her latest release Fast and Feast, and it does translate even better on a live setting, where she handles her chord patterns comfortably as her four band mates provide a more wholesome environment. Most of her set washed over like a calm wave, but once she closed the set with the soaring, solo-heavy Stronger, it truly felt like all bets were off. And then it shortly ended. But Peruti accomplished what many opening acts regularly fail to accomplish throughout her punchy, 35-minute set: to leave a mainly unbeknownst audience curious and wanting for more.

Lauren Lakis captures a relationship in the fritz of corruption on "Mourn the Dead"

With one foot in the electronic genre and the other in folk, singer songwriter Lauren Lakis releases her latest single,  “Mourn The Dead”. Lakis has been categorized as an electric doom folk artist, hitting multiple different platforms of music styles and listeners with her unique disposition. “Mourn The Dead” captures a relationship in the fritz of corruption, and what it is like to suffer through it but still, somehow coming out stronger. Her moody and dark stylings are exactly what one needs when buried in a funk, as she’ll pull you out and suck you right back in (in every good way possible).

"Mourn the Dead" is the first preview off of her forthcoming full-length album, entitled Ferocious. We have to wait until February of 2018 to hear the whole album, but it will be well worth the wait. - Kayla Hay

Los Angeles Police Department share video for intimately haunting "Drugs"

Within the first minute of "Drugs," the latest single by Los Angeles Police Department, lead singer Ryan Pollie breaks the fourth wall by assuming his impending demise. "I won't be dead for long / I will get trapped in this song," Pollie asserts as he leisurely strums with an unhurried elegance. But "Drugs" has a darker undercurrent which belies its otherwise genial complexion, a trait that Pollie also abides by on its performance-based promo cut. 

Los Angeles Police Department are currently holding a residency at the Bootleg Theater throughout the month of November. The band's self-titled full-length came out earlier this year via Anti-Records. Juan Rodríguez

Psych Rockers Triptides talk about guitar pedals on Delicious Audio

Since its appearance in the late '60s, psychedelic music has been inspiring hordes of musicians, and has probably been the main reason driving the guitar pedal frenzy of the last decade, since guitarists devoted to the genre seem to need an ever increasing number of stompboxes. The current indie music scene offers thousands of artists that reference psychedelia, from subtly to wholeheartedly. One of the bands that most vigorously (and unapologetically) embraces the genre in its authentic acception is Los Angeles' Triptides. With their vintage sounding songs that could have been written in the '60s, their recent release "Afterglow" manages to reference in one record anybody from early Pink Floyd to Jefferson Airplane, the Doors and even The Beatles and The Byrds during their most psych years. Of course, this kind of revival comes with a LOT of stompboxes - the band's guitarists Glenn and Josh were kind enough to walk us through them with our friends at Delicious Audio - check out the feature here!
