Swimsuit Issue
Swimsuit Issue
Los Angeles based, New York born and bred duo Swimsuit Issue posses the rare gift of creating a sound that both punches you in the gut and tears at your emotions with their infectious alternative rock/pop singles. Featuring Miles Garber (who you may recognize as a prominent male model) and Dave Gagliardi (who also doubles as the guitarist for Trash Talk), the band formed in 2014 after meeting outside of an art show on the Bowery. Their debut single, “Look Now” is equal parts intimate and edgy, with the young duo radiating a full spectrum of emotions—pain, sadness, confusion—all impeccably delivered through Garber's effortless somber croon.

In contrast to the fast pace of the digital age, Swimsuit Issue took their time; over 2 years since they formed to hone in and perfect their sound. Reminiscent of the glory days of when 120 Minutes used to invade our TVs, the band found a fan in Cat Power (a.k.a. Chan Marshall) through just an unreleased demo that was sent to her via a friend. “It was the most ridiculous thing ever,” recalls Garber, “We had done a demo. It was my first time in a studio, and I had sent it to friends I trusted. Three days later, they were like, ‘Hey, so we sent it to our friend Chan, she really likes it, and she wants you to open for her tomorrow.’ I was like, ‘Cool, who’s Chan?’".

Swimsuit Issue's melancholy themes are often skillfully veiled in pop metaphors. Already championed early on by tastemakers such as W, Milk Media, NOISEY and V Magazine, the band have created a sound that is captivating and relatable with the music that accompanies them.

With the release of “Look Now,” there’s no doubt that Swimsuit Issue is a name you are going to be hearing a lot in 2018. Stay tuned for more music and live dates coming soon.
Palm Springsteen
Palm Springsteen
Born in the professional hedonism of Los Angeles, Palm Springsteen draws
from elements of new wave, post-punk, synth pop and, ahem, “blow pop” to
create something that even E.T. would phone home about.

Ever since that sick eclipse that only looked good in Idaho and Wyoming,
Palm Springsteen blasted into 2017 by landing the main support slot on the
Foster The People tour (based off the hype of two songs on soundcloud).

They are currently in the studio working on their debut for 2018.
Adiós Ghost
Adiós Ghost
Adiós Ghost draws from a broad sonic palette, focusing psychedelia, early house, R&B and West African music through a dark and moody rock lens. The band’s debut, self-titled EP came out in winter 2013 and was met with praise, described by critics as "wild and worldly", "full bodied, and impassioned" and "intensely colourful." Moving forward, Adiós Ghost expanded upon their founding influences, and drummer Alex Loew tacked on the role of producer-engineer. They released The Endless Return EP in June 2016, followed by their first full-length, Fade Out With Your Phantoms, in April 2017. After a spring tour of the East Coast, South, and Midwest, the band
began working on a follow-up with Producer Phil Mossman (LCD Soundsystem, Primal Scream).
