West coast garage Repeated Measures releases Dark Matters 2/23

Despite radio-ing out from the foggy northern city of Sendai, Repeated Measures' tripped out, overcast garage trickles through the Internet, and it feels like he's still here in Orange County. Guitar harmonics. Negative-range sine waves. Obfuscated sighs. Christopher Norwood's electronic ephemera dabs UK beats with West Coast psych, coming up distinct from the Los Angeles beat scene with the Grn+Gld collective: Dirty Merlin, Kalva Won, Cicero, Chip Monk, Dripping Gems, and more. After last year's ambient love letter Transmission, Norwood's been teasing out his upcoming release Dark Matters over the past two months, and the wait is finally over. You can still listen to the entire album via Norwood's Bandcamp, including our personal favorite sonic imprint "Rooftop Comedown"—contemplative, detached, poignant. - Ryan Mo





Zoloft infiltrates our brains with "Above"

When you see a band with a name like Zoloft, you may not know exactly what you're getting, but you have a pretty good idea what it won't be. "Exuberant" and "gleeful," for example, aren't among the first words that come to mind. And while the downtempo ballads on Above may not surprise you with their content, their quality very well might catch you off guard. Levi Miller, the man behind Zoloft, has hit the nail on the head when it comes to matching the feeling of his project's namesake drug—hallucinatory, distant, kind of like your consciousness is sitting a few inches behind your eyeballs and not quite able to connect. If you're feeling down, a little bit of non-prescription dream pop may be just what you need. -Austin Phy

Struck by the synthpop auras of LUV, performing with .paperman in April

For the five minutes that I listened "f a n t a s y l o v e" by LUV, nothing else mattered. The tip-of-the-tongue '80s intro, diffracting into effervescent, luminous meloromanticism left a taste half-metallic, half-citric in my mouth. It was like witnessing the birth of a musical deity, like the ones we've come to know through larger publications: Solange, Blood Orange, Sky Ferreira.

The bedroom project is as youthful as its sound, started by the enigmatic johnny since August 2015, with some material that s/he'd "been working on for years." Listing N'Sync, Prince, Britney Spears, and Ready for the World as major influences, johnny mixed '90s pop, new wave and R&B inspirations with homespun technique, taking on a markedly different sound from the debut single "leave."

"Empress Of, MNDR, Kimbra, ABRA, this wave of female producers all inspired me to start taking my lil bedroom jams more seriously," johnny says.

LUV is currently planning shows in the Los Angeles area with .paperman in April; check back for more info. Until then, listen to the bedroom producer's newest EP and hope that this is anything but a fantasy.- Ryan Mo
