SPANISH LOVE SONGS
SPANISH LOVE SONGS
Spanish Love Songs is a five piece punk band based in Los Angeles, CA. They formed in 2014 after the demise of a previous band and a chance Craiglist post about lonely people looking to go to punk shows. Their sound combines the energy of drunken bar shows with the immediacy of intimate, lived-in lyrics.

Self released in 2015 (and later reissued on Wiretap Records), their first album, “Giant Sings the Blues,” chronicles singer Dylan Slocum’s mid-twenties through songs about apathy, anxiety, and a slowly disintegrating marriage, all told over fast drums and rousing power chords.

They are currently prepping for the release of their second album, “schmaltz”, which finds the band expanding their sound both musically and lyrically. More anthemic than ever, the band tears through ten songs in which Slocum tries to find a positive way to handle the loss of those closest to him while inching towards self-acceptance in a world that doesn’t always feel like home.

It’s new ground for the band of so-called grouch punks. It’s also Spanish Love Songs at their absolute best, so they’ll try to enjoy it.

"If punk-rock has always been raw, with all the brash vulnerability implied therein, then Spanish Love Songs may be the genre’s modern epitome. It’s not that Giant Sings the Blues, the LA-based band’s first full-length, is reckless or unrefined... instead, it’s the raw nerves revealed in these songs that remind us that we’re frail, imperfect, and human....."
(New Noise Magazine 2016).
LIGHTSPEEDGO
LIGHTSPEEDGO
LightSpeedGo is a 3 piece punk rock band from Tempe,Az. Even though the band has just started they have created a buzz in the local phoenix music scene. All members are veterans of the local Az music scene. Made of members of Off The Mark, Look Out Look, The Ultramatics, The Dead Irrelevants and No Gimmick.
GHOST IN THE WILLOW
When he's not performing with AZ based punk trio The Combat Medic, front-man Gil Rodriguez performs his more acoustic based songs as Ghost In The Willow. Sometimes backed by a few musicians & sometimes going it alone performing songs in the key of heartache is what Ghost In The Willow does best. Look out for a new EP in 2017!
