Hunnypot Live #283


Hunnypot Hillary Holmes square



One thing is for sure: this lady knows her music. Hillary Holmes makes her Hunnypot debut as a member of the team at both Zenden Music Supervision and KCRW, and we have no doubts that she will bring the kind of inside knowledge that has put her on the inside of the Los Angeles music scene. We know she’s got the chops, only question is what surprises this rising tastemaker has in store for the Hunnypot Krewe.



Kicking off the Hunnypot band action is LA-mainstay yOya. Comprised of Alex Pfender and Noah Dietterich, yOya combines classic folk songwriting with contemporary electronics and thundering beats. A core member of the upstart label New Professor, yOya has been spreading their two-man folktronic music along the west coast since the release of their first album in 2010. They have shared stages with Avi Buffalo, The 88, Crystal Antlers, The Happy Hallows, and Moving Picture Show, among many others.  01/27/2014

P L a N E T S

The unique live experience of a P L a N E T S show is like witnessing some kind of eerie post-modern garage rock opera. Featuring vibey immersive atmospheres with dancers, actors and shadow puppetry coming at you from all directions in cahoots with the music–this is not your every day rock band. Always basing their material around a place, P L a N E T S recently released their debut album, TheDarkWoods. One last thing: there will be robots. You have to see it to believe it.



Did somebody order some ironic, bluesy indie rock with a side of grunge? With two lead singers, Gallagher and Lauren Lakis, the band blends touches of The Strokes, The Pixies, Interpol and Queens of The Stoneage, with such desperate influences as Elliott Smith, Nirvana, Ben Gibbard in a purposefully eclectic stew. The sound is characterized by layered vocal harmonies that emerge from gutsy garage rock.


Things have been steadily shining bright for rising indie R&B duo, Jupiter Project. But now the boys from down-under are ready to make an international statement with the release of their eagerly anticipated debut EP. Intriguingly titled Zeus, the pair match their soulful vocals with a brave, genre defying palette of production compiled and composed by the duo. The 11-track-deep EP also samples production work by the likes of Hudson Mohawke and Jamie XX, amongst others, and their unique blend of lo-fi R&B vocals and diverse instrumentation has drawn comparison to a range of international artists, from Phoenix to Drake. Gavin Correia and Marty Rich; otherwise known as Jupiter Project, aren’t new to the scene in their native New Zealand, where they have played major international festivals such as Rhythm and Vines and also shared stages with the likes of Flume and Will.I.Am. The duo are also known as one of New Zealand’s most prolific song-writers and have recently penned a number of top 10 hits back home. Their first single off Zeus, Peer Pressure, brings forth a subtle french nu-disco influence, complimented by smooth vocals and intellectually subtle wordplay. After listening to the record, it becomes clear why culture icons like Adidas, Hypebeast and have come on board to support the boys. Be sure to jump on the wagon before it’s too late.
