The Altons

The Altons have been active around town for the last couple of years, quickly becoming known for vibrantly encapsulating the essence of a Los Angeles that exists because of its raspy, strikingly honest, genre bending forbears. Their sound is soulful blues with a sun tan and sweet backyard cumbia tinnitus. It's a sound that's graced stages from Viva Pomona to Echo Park Rising, and has local audiences swooning to say the least.

The Altons, all from Los Angeles with roots all over space and time, don't shy away from the experience of growing up at a cultural crossroads in fact, they welcome it- both in their sound at at their live shows. In The Meantime is an album made with love for where they came from and a bold step forward for the new generation coming out of Southeast Los Angeles.

Thee Sinseers

 

"To appreciate the magic of a performance from Thee Sinseers, you have to understand the co-mingling of Chicano and African American communities in post-World War II, Southern California. Living in the same neighborhoods, these communities created a virtual symphony of R&B, mariachi and boleros. And what you hear in this California band's Tiny Desk (home) concert, as they perform among plants in a flower shop, builds on a legacy of music that became known as "oldies but goodies" in the Chicano community.

Right from the start, band leader and vocalist Joey Quiñones and his crew dig deep with their original songs that pay homage to the oldies in a way that evokes my own memories of lowrider car shows and lazy Sunday afternoons at Roeding Park in Fresno, Calif. "What's His Name" features a delicate falsetto that was popular in 1950s R&B. The short horn parts and the doo-wop background vocals fall into a call and response backdrop for lyrics about a broken heart." - NPR

Rudy De Anda

Conceived in the 1980s in Mexico and brought to California through the border inside of his 6-month-pregnant mother, Rudy de Anda is releasing his debut solo record, a love letter to the long historical lineage of rock ’n roll music as interpreted through his multicultural lens. “I write my own story, I don’t want to be defined by any scene” de Anda proclaims of his personal journey, and his ability to adapt and flit between cities and cultures is part of why L.A. Record has called his sound “deliberately difficult to classify, familiar but novel at the same time.” 


Since 2005, De Anda has played thousands of shows in various musical projects, but with ‘Tender Epoch’, tellingly the first recorded under his own name, he has clearly found his own voice with a wealth of stories to spotlight. It’s exquisitely crafted pop, with universal messages of heartbreak and loss that still feel appropriate played speeding windows-down on the highway in the coastal sunshine. Above all, De Anda likes to keep people guessing: from the album artwork to the multi-faceted textures of sound, ‘Tender Epoch’ feels ambiguous to any era, a perfect collusion of old and new that showcases a music historian’s knowledge of both past greats and influential peers. Sculpting his own path through a wild ride that feels unlikely to let up, De Anda refuses to settle down or get comfortable, instead carving out a classic record that is sure to set a standard for songwriting to come.
