    Since the release of their 2014 groovily anthemic EP “A Good Look,” Private Island has quickly caught the attention of the indie / alternative music scene. 2016’s “Sunbreak”  saw the band build on their individual talents focusing on delicate harmonies, while maintaining the prominent basslines and signature guitar sound listeners have quickly come to expect. Following the success of “Sunbreak,” and the Hype Machine chart topping single “Drugs,” the sextet hit the road for their first US tour in 2017. Private Island’s live sets are an almost stellar series of instrumental switches as vocalists Christian Lum and Michelle Guerrero dovetail in and out of binary orbit. Meanwhile, bassist Tommy Nickerson, lead guitarist Cameron Anderson, renaissance man Roger Mawer, and drummer Tim Barbour are the gravity, keeping everyone grounded and grooving. Now, Private Island is moving forward with “Sunbreak”’s natural successor,  “Night Drive”. Singles “Turbulence” and “Juvenile” portend the stated switch as nocturnal R&B production infects the band’s, to this point, brightly shimmering style. With “Night Drive” Private Island shows us Los Angeles by streetlight, and proves that in a city full of stars, there’s no such thing as pitch black.

    Mating Ritual’s Ryan Marshall Lawhon is a journeyman who can’t sit still. Relocating up and down the west coast twice a year until he was 18, the producer-songwriter has become accustomed to change; the very opposite of a “creature of habit”. His restless need to be on the move is a driving force in the creation of his music. Driven to push the boundaries of “Alternative” songwriting and production, he continues to release complex yet catchy songs that question the traditional ideals of genre classification. After the hiatus of his prior band Pacific Air, Ryan cranked up his songwriting prolificacy and found immense freedom in the world of independent recording. Uninhibited by appeasing an ideal or genre, Ryan began recording what he calls Post-Genre-Pop under the alias Mating Ritual.
     
    After topping the Spotify viral charts, landing dozens of TV placements and grabbing the Zane Lowe stamp of approval with his self titled EP, Mating Ritual released his debut album “How You Gonna Stop It?” via his own label, Smooth Jaws, on June 9th, 2017. Stereogum called it “Lush, sweeping pop craft tinged with electro energy”, Consequence of Sound said “Think of it like M83’s writing with Car Seat Headrest’s structural tendencies” while Buzzbands claimed it “More beefcake than cheesecake”.
