A HOUSE FOR LIONS Record Release Show @ Echo 7/10/14

a house for lions LP release show

“With the band’s catchy, emotive sound — equal parts dusty alt-country and lovelorn late ’90s alt-rock — we’re surprised debut EP track ‘Let Back’ isn’t as big a hit as ‘Pumped Up Kicks’.” –L.A. Times

“L.A.’s A House for Lions showed off a robust rock sound at Rusty’s on Wednesday, adding garage ferocity to the softer, ’90s-influenced alt-rock of debut EP ‘I Want Us to Be Remembered’. –Billboard.com

“They’re only just starting out but already they’re purring like a sleek machine with a human heart…seeing a band this good this early is a thing of wonder and ought to be celebrated.” – Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) – Q Magazine

“Purveyors of gorgeous anthemic rock” –-Kevin Bronson, BuzzBands.LA

THE LATEST: The band’s debut full-length album made with Grammy Award-winning producer Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Elliott Smith, Fiona Apple, Warpaint) will be released 06.24.14 on Randm Records, home to the cult status Lost Ark Studio. They made the album after successfully completing a DIY crowdfunding campaign that impressed the indie music world at large and attracted flattering press (includingan interview on NPRDigital Music NewsTunecoreHypebot) based on the innovative approach they took in bypassing Kickstarter and the other main crowdfunding platforms.

Daniel Norman, singer/songwriter of A House for Lions, was a music lover who never intended to become a musician. But while hitchhiking through Germany, a melody and a few words popped into his head and never left: “we’ll write a book worth reading!” – the first line of what would become the first song Daniel ever wrote and A House for Lions’ statement of purpose, “Let Back”. In that moment, he realized it might be possible to get off of the fence and create a project of his own; at least, it would be fun to try. Daniel had played guitar since he was a kid, but had no experience playing in a band. So he’d have to get better, (“we’ll pass the test, no cheating!”) but he’d also need to seek out kindred spirits to flesh-out the sound of his bare bones experiments.

In early 2010 he found just that in an unlikely group of strangers. Adding guitarist and designer Mike Nissen, bass player Eric McCann and drummer Joe Luisi, A House for Lions has developed a sound that according to The Deli Magazine “manages to blend the sleeker side of angsty 90s rock with the laid-back instrumentation and heart-string pulling melodies you might expect from an alt-country band”.

Within six months, the band had recorded their first EP I Want Us To Be Remembered, with LA producer Raymond Richards (Local Natives) and were off and running. From there the band garnered rave reviews from the LA Times and Billboard.com, made impressive debuts at CMJ and SXSW and established themselves as one of Los Angeles’ most promising young bands.

A House For Lions recently completed work on their debut full-length album with Grammy Award-winning producer Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Elliot Smith, Fiona Apple) after completing an innovative DIY crowdfunding campaign to fund the making of the album. By successfully bypassing the traditional crowdfunding platforms (Kickstarter, et al) and building their campaign from scratch, they’ve impressed the indie music world at large and attracted flattering press including an interview on NPR, articles fromDigital Music NewsHypebot and many others.

Not content to rest on any laurels, these brothers-in-arms remain dedicated to creating and sustaining a distinct vision in an uncertain musical landscape. “To all the new beginnings/to all the screws unspinning!”

Matt Von Roderick

He rocks the trumpet. He sings. He writes songs. Classic. Cutting-edge. Raw. Emotional. A product of the vigorous New York City arts scene, Matt made his Carnegie Hall main stage debut as featured guest soloist with the New York Pops Orchestra through the invitation of Skitch Henderson, and was named top Jazz Artist by the Independent Music Awards as judged by rock music icon Lou Reed. Matt creates what All About Jazz calls “an other-worldly sound…something of a tour de force, he sings, plays, and uses his voice as a muted horn in a solo and duet with the trumpet…

Video Pick: Das Tapes – Natural

Our favorite brotherly  duo is back at it with another epic music video. This time for Natural off their Supreme EP.  The brothers are known for making really fun, quirky and sexy music videos. Natural is no exception. The camera angles, the glitter, the girl, the massive keytar. It all just makes you want to put on your dancing shoes and climb right up on that rotating stage with em’!

Video Pick: Netherfriends – “Joey Vision”

 

Netherfriends’ newest track “Joey Vision” finds him on all ends of the emotional spectrum. Locked in rather than tuned out, sinking fast with heavy fury, the track features Fugazi-laced urgency with New Wave inspired delivery. Shawn has endured the years of stubble and pain to scold the audience with an ironic yet honest declaration of taste. It’s hard to tell if he is bragging, complaining, or both.

Video Pick: Henri – It’s Like This, It’s Like That

Henri (aka Henrietta Tiefenthaler) is making her mark on both sides of the Atlantic as a DJ, singer/producer/songwriter and fashionista. Henri is a rapidly emerging name on the Los Angeles scene, spinning at some of L.A.’s hottest parties. As a performer, Henri is demonstrating an equal versatility, performing with her psychedelic krautrock band Thrillionaire, and developing her own dance/pop productions. She has a forthcoming EP in the works and this week she released this awesome hoolah hoop addiction/battle video to accompany her first solo single, “It’s Like This, It’s Like That” on her label Monstertooth Records. The nu-disco anthem will be the perfect soundtrack to your summer! Henri will be DJing and performing August 25th for Hunnypot Radio live at The Mint. Don’t miss it!

Video Pick: King Washington – “Land Without Age” (Live at Black Tie Studios)

 

Hunnypot’s very own KING WASHINGTON has released what is the first of four live studio recordings on their youtube channel. We have been big fans of this group from the moment we first laid ears on them, and this performance is a triumph that rivals any of their previous body of work – high praise considering that we hold KING WASHINGTON in the highest of regards.

The performance was done live at Charles Lopez’s Black Tie Studios, directed by Ryan Alan Petti, mixed/mastered by Todd Bergman, and produced by Todd Bergman and Hunnypot’s Matt Linsky. If you enjoy great live performances, be sure to keep an eye out for the next video to drop!
