So Many Wizards
With a sound that Aquarium Drunkard describes as an “enigmatic blend of pop, rock, ballads, and zany nuggets,” the hardworking dream pop group, So Many Wizards, have been consistently playing high-spirited and powerful live shows across Los Angeles and greater Southern California. Started originally by lead singer/guitarist Nima Kazerouni in Long Beach, California, the current lineup includes Erik Felix on drums, Bassist Devin Ratliff, and Martin Tomemitsu on lead guitar. Their single “Inner City” earned airplay on BBC 1 leading to a UK tour as well as touring the US, and last year supporting No Age at the first annual KXLU Fest in Los Angeles. They have unquestionably become a staple of LA’s DIY music scene as all of their local shows are brimming with sweaty young fans crowd surfing and dancing along to every jangly dream punk song. Along with packing venues with their high-energy shows, So Many Wizards have released a handful of EPs, a debut album, two 7″s, and recently had their single “Lose Your Mind” featured on FOX’s New Girl. They just released their Part Time Punks session EP via Lolipop Records and a split 7″ via Converse Rubber Tracks and Amoeba Music. Their sophomore full-length album, Heavy Vision is slated to be released early April 2017.
Avi Buffalo (#HiHatAlumni)
Avi Buffalo is known in the world of Indie Rock for his emotionally-driven songs and explosive guitar playing. Accompanied by a slew of skilled musicians as his live band, Avi Buffalo brings to the stage an unprecedented presence of taste and excitement to classic yet contemporary experimental songwriting in today’s world of music, while leaving the abyss of the human condition gaping for all to existentially ponder their unknown musical soul.
LA native Kevin Litrow’s “LITRONIX” is a one-man music machine.
Technologically based off the roots of repetition through high-tech loop pedals, Kevin creates pop structures coloring the songs with dynamic layers of warm analog synthesizers, micro tonally open tuned guitar, bass heavy polyrhythmic electronic beats and soulful vocal melodies on top. The beats are created from either beat boxing, drum machines, or just experimenting with what toys or instruments are around at the time. The vocals are what drive the soul of the sound and command the listener to either think deep or dance hard. Each song has it’s own character and is it’s own painting with it’s own subject. Every subject has a deep meaning or a story to tell.
Litronix is much different than a DJ. When performing live, the beats are sent separately through a PA system while most of the other loops are sent through tube amps. The sound is delivered as if there are multiple band members. And watching Litronix perform live is a spectacle, as Kevin is an experienced true performer / singer / dancer.
In the past, Kevin has been the sole creator of bands such as “Dance Disaster Movement” Released on Steve Aoki’s Dimmak Records and 60 Watt Kid. He has shared the stage and toured extensively with acts such as Ariel Pink, Broadcast, The Kills, The Gossip, Peaches, Blood Brothers, Ian MacKaye, Prince Rama, Blok Party, Best Coast, Mum.
