Illunis

By Illunis

AlternativeFolkRock


In movies, Technicolor enhances each color on the screen. Each track on our album is a color that represents a period of time growing up in Los Angeles. Technicolor takes you through a journey of growth and nostalgia. It is new wine aged in old oak. We are Illunis, a hat wearing Folk-Rock band from the San Fernando Valley. If Queen and Mumford & Sons had a baby, we would be that spawn.

Going Somewhere

By Rachel Flowers

JazzProgressiveRock


Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Flowers shares her sophomore solo album, Going Somewhere which features 13 tracks inspired by some of her favorite artists – Kirk Franklin, Talking Heads, Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and more. As with her debut album, Listen, Rachel refuses to be pigeonholed, drawing from her extensive musical background to create a sound with elements of jazz, rock, orchestral, and pop, but one that is uniquely her own. This album, as well as her first, is self-produced, recorded at home, and Rachel plays all of the instruments with the utmost precision. Her sweet, almost angelic voice will lure you in and keep you listening. Her music is playful, sophisticated, and delivered with an incredible sensibility.

Colours You Can't See

By Lili Joy

AlternativeIndiePop


"Colours You Can't See - deluxe edition" are the emotions and feelings that we carry around with us every day that we don't let other people know about,” shares LiLi Joy. “Some of them we'd be proud to wear on our sleeve while the others, not so much. All of the songs on the EP were written during a time where I was isolated with myself and my emotions.. As a result of that, I hope from the bottom of my heart that people can feel unashamed of being the beautiful, complex confusions that they truly are.”

Interlude

By Sarah Lightman

PopSoul


My dad who was a singer/songwriter passed away when I was 14. At that time I was discovering how much I loved the medium of music and writing lyrics. He told me that I was different like him and he encouraged me to let my differences shine even when moments in life are hard. He would say “The best thing you can choose to do in this life is something you love.” His sudden passing shook up my path and I wasn’t sure how to keep developing in music. I took a series of interludes over the next 10 years that helped remind me of the legacy my dad shared. These songs represent the hardships and self awakening I needed to go through to remind me that his spirit never once left and how the obstacles helped me grow into the artist I needed to become.

Raised On Porn

By Madeline Rosene

AlternativeIndiePopRock


Millennials are the first generation to grow up exposed to internet pornography, highly photoshopped digital advertisements, skyrocketing rates of cosmetic surgery, webcam models, online sugar dating, and so much more. We live in a sex sells culture that favors Instagram butt models over intelligence, follower count over human connection, and luxury branding over compelling narratives. I wrote the songs on this album while navigating relationships, fighting through inauthenticity and phoniness, dating, and going through a time of self- discovery, trying to be deeply honest with myself.
