The next KROQ Locals Only Showcase will be held at the Roxy Theatre on next Thursday Aug. 19.
Silver Lake band Italian Japanese have been likened to bands ranging from Phoenix to the Silversun Pickups, but with their debut album The Lush, Romantic Weirdness, they definitely created a unique identity for themselves that has been getting them noticed. Their single “Le Pony” was #1 on last Sunday’s Locals Only show.
Sabrosa Purr are an L.A. band who just released their third album. The full-length To The Crickets and The Ghost was produced by Stone Temple Pilots producer Tracy Chisholm. The three-piece band names Pink Floyd and Nirvana among their many influences, and accordingly their music is not confined within any one genre.
Jets Overhead are a band from British Columbia, Canada, who are now entering the L.A. music scene. They say their ambient music is created by band members having conversations with each other through songs. Their latest album is called No Nations.
The Sea of Cortez were originally a San Diego band who have relocated to L.A. Their multi-layered music has a very distinctive sound. A single, “The Shores,” was just released in July and their new album Make It Sound is set to come out later this year.
