James Supercave
James Supercave
LA based James Supercave combine psych aesthetics with a pop sensibility creating a groove-hugging sound that’s dark but inviting. Hailing from Echo Park, the trio of Joaquin Pastor, Patrick Logothetti and Andrés Villalobos blend a range of influences and sounds - at once groovy and rhythmic, other times soulful and freaky. After dropping a debut EP, 2015’s The Afternoon, Supercave shared the stage with bands like Warpaint, Chet Faker, Jungle and Future Islands, before returning to studio.
Supercave released their debut LP Better Strange, in 2016. Singles The Right Thing, Burn, and title track Better Strange represent a fully focused realization of the complex sound the band hinted at in the past. Picked up by NPR and Sirius XM radio play, the band’s live 5-piece live performance has been seen on a sold-out US tour with Wilde Belle, as well as extensive West Coast headlining dates, notably including a recent top-billed Los Angeles festival play alongside Grammy-winning duo Brasstracks.
The Seshen
The Seshen
The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area-based six-piece led by singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste and bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. Their forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines, live percussion, and entrancing harmonies to create an unmistakable fusion of R&B, synth-pop, and electronic music. St. Juste and Ehara are joined by four remarkable bandmates to create their multidimensional music: drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman, and sampler Kumar Butler. They take inspiration from across the musical spectrum; their individual influences range from recognizable artists (Erykah Badu, Jai Paul, James Blake, Radiohead, and Broadcast) to genres and eras that don’t initially appear to fit together (hip hop, indie rock, early electronica, and 70’s dub). Their unique alchemy of seemingly disparate sounds has led fans and critics alike to describe the band as defying categorization.
The Seshen’s latest release, Flames & Figures (October 14, 2016 – Tru Thoughts), was two years in the making and marks an evolution in their distinctive sound. Narrated by St. Juste’s lyrical stream of consciousness, Flames & Figures explores themes of femininity, power, illusion, and loss, as she draws on both her personal experiences and the world of her imagination.
The band remains in high demand, supporting live shows with the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, tUnE-yArDs, Thundercat, Petite Noir and many more. They will be touring extensively in both the U.S. and Europe in 2017 after recently signing with booking agency 13 Artists (Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, Portishead).
