Calpurnia forms a distinct, coherent sound in Scout, proving themselves as distinguished artists on their first attempt.
Lunar Vacation, the pool rock band from Atlanta, Georgia are breaking into a larger scene with the release of their new EP, “Swell,” with it’s laid back indie rock sound the five song EP is perfect for a summer day at the beach (or the pool).
The EP, “Gossamer,” by Fashion Jackson, (known as the brilliant four member band from Ocean Beach) has a unique mix of tracks that vary from electronic, R&B, and garage punk, to acoustic/indie rock. Each track is different to the other, all while creating this genius fluidity to the release when listening from start to finish.
On March 11th, I had the privilege of talking to the boys who are a part of the indie band from San Diego called, “Stray Monroe,” about their first EP release. The members include: Blake Imperl, 22 (Lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Adam Hakes, 24 (Lead guitar and vocals), Brett Kelly, 19 (Bass guitar) and Colin Croft, 21, who plays the drums. To get to know the boys a little bit better, I asked them all for “one really funny child hood memory.”
