BG110 | Feels

Low Points are a quintessentially Southern California band. Mixing the sing along choruses of bands like Weezer with the sugary, DGAF surf fuzz of early WAVVES, Low Points’ debut EP ’Feels’ is bursting with stony slacker punk hooks. Led by songwriter Kevin Vega (Space Heat) and consisting of Jakob McWhinney (Space Heat, Ex-The Soaks, Spooky Cigarette), Frank Mindingall (Ale Mania, Northern Tigers, Spooky Cigarette) and Jeremy Hoover, Low Points are a fresh and honest take on garage pop.

The band balance surf rock rhythms and hard-hitting guitar riffs with deeply personal lyrics dealing with alienation and depression to create a sound that is at once catchy and haunting. Their four song debut, ‘Feels’ bounds from influences like the gritty garage pop of Mike Krol, pseudo emo-revival of Cloud Nothings to the surf punk of Tijuana Panthers, all the while maintaining a unique and memorable voice.

‘Feels’ will be released on March 3rd, 2017 through Field Trips & Bleeding Gold Records.

People//Talk formed in a pub in January of 2012 under the original name of So Sexual.

What started out as a few friends who had previously played in bands together thinking that maybe it’d be fun to write a bunch of songs and play a gig (which they did in the space of the first month), has 2 years later proven to have a little more longevity than any of them might have anticipated.

Within that time frame the band now known as People//Talk has developed their own distinct identity, drawing upon elements of post/punk and new wave whilst delivering a contemporary, accessible sound.

For those who are already familiar with and enjoyed the bands previous works as ‘So Sexual’ you will be pleased to find that a change of name doesn’t mean a departure from the overall sound.

SPACE HEAT have premiered a new video for the song ‘Place Inside‘ – the closing track of their debut EP “Happy Birthday“. Directed by Jason Low using Super 8 film during a roadtrip up the West Coast, the video is a kaleidoscope of visuals from San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Francisco and Marin County, featuring the dreamy NightPop sounds of the San Diego-based band.

The EP has been newly-released on fancy cassette format as a co-release between Bleeding Gold Records and Fields Trips, a new San Diego-based collective of like-minded artists releasing local music from the many associated band members and bands. There will be a Cassette Release Party on Tuesday September 23rd at Soda Bar [3615 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92104]…come out to say ‘Hi’ and purchase a copy of the tape from the band!

BG071 // 10 Feb 2014

Songs For Walter aka Laurie Hulme is back with another slice of folk pop, this time armed with a banjo and a story about his Grandfathers philosophy, communism and constitutional stance about Laurie changing his university course to politics.

The title is from the philosopher: Thomas Hobbe’s ‘Leviathan’ of which Laurie studied during his time at university. Hobbes says that ungoverned man would be constantly at war because of Competition, Diffidence and Glory. This is a comprehensible story about family life and how it can affect your studies, read into it as much as like.

Golden Glow WEB

Golden Glow, the solo project of singer-songwriter Pierre Hall, is set to release a new 6-track EP, ‘Beauty / Duty’ on 27th January via Bleeding Gold Records, with a sound that echoes the laid-back, idyllic melodies of Real Estate and Wild Nothing. After some full band recording sessions with an outside producer, Pierre decided the sound was becoming almost too clinical and lost some of the magic that comes with the limitations of using more basic equipment. Pierre decided to abort the sessions and go back to the four-track, the result being the new 6-track EP, ‘Beauty / Duty’, influenced by Felt, New Order, Arthur Russell, Velvet Underground, The Cure, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
