    Pearl and the Oysters

    Indie Pop

    Pearl & the Oysters is the French-American duo of Joachim Polack and Juliette Davis. Using a kitchen sink's worth of instruments, calling in sympathetic musicians, and showing off a very light melodic sensibility, the band's first two albums were breezy and delightful space age pop.

    The pair met in high school in Paris and bonded over their mutual love for such seemingly unrelated acts as Burt Bacharach, the Pixies, Chico Buarque, or the Zombies. While studying musicology at the Sorbonne and attending jazz school, they began working on a sound that was equally influenced by space age pop of the '50s (as well as its revival in the '90s by bands like Stereolab), and the inspired simplicity of Love You-era Beach Boys. They began recording their first album in Paris, but midway through moved to the U.S., partly so Polack could attend the University of Florida where he began studying Brazilian music at a doctoral level. They finished their self-titled debut in Gainesville, FL and released it in September of 2017.

    It wasn't long before they started working on a second album, featuring contributions from a variety of indie musicians, most notably Vulfpeck guitarist Cory Wong, and Alex Brettin of the Mild High Club. The finished album shared a similarly upbeat attitude and breezy pop feel as their debut, but added some fuller arrangements, building on a harmonic vocabulary showing off the band’s growing jazz-pop inclinations. 

    After a couple of years touring as a four-piece and a semi-confidential live tape meant to capture the band’s analog, toy-synth-driven approach to stage performance (Party!, 2019), the duo relocated to Los Angeles in January 2020. There, Polack was able to complete his doctorate while putting the finishing touches on P&TO’s third studio album, Flowerland, to be released in 2021 via Feeltrip Records.

    Litronix

    Synth Pop

    Los Angeles native Kevin Litrow has been in many bands throughout his life such as the legendary "Dance Disaster Movement", "Radar", and "60 Watt Kid". In 2012, Kevin found his true heart to be his own one-man music machine called Litronix.  With 2 records under his belt and is currently recording the third, Litronix is timeless and will grow beyond the status quo. 

    Technologically rooted in repetition using midi loop pedals and electronics, Litronix creates pop structures and dynamic layers of analog synthesizers, micro tonally open tuned guitar, subsonic bass frequencies, heavy poly- rhythmic electronic beats and soulful vocal melodies on top. The vocals are what drive the soul of the sound.  Kevin's stage performance is a spectacle.  His tight dance moves, heavy pounding rhythms and harmonic tones, hypnotize and command the spectator to either think deep or dance hard. Every subject has a deep meaning or a story to tell. Invention and innovation through the minimalist tools that are given is an important value for music and art alone.  Looping, if done right, is an art achieved for a special category of innovation.
