Hale May) 9pFIORE 11p Y LA BAMBA "Doing Portland Proud: Y La Bamba." - Billboard "Y La Bamba makes fractured folk that sounds as if it comes from dog-eared diaries. The author is statuesque Luz Elena, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, whose vintage vocals seem to come from the 78-rpm era." - Buzzbands LA "...mixes Devendra Banhart-influenced art-folk with hazy femme vocals and traditional Mexican sounds to weirdly entrancing effect." - LA Weekly
GINGA TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11 – SILVERLAKE LOUNGE - $8GINGA (AT) 10pFIORE 11pMARIA SWEET 9p IL ABANICO (MA) 8p MARIA SWEET Singer/Songwriters Jessica Espinoza & Daniele Maltzman bring a unique and original sound to their band Maria Sweet. Their Shock-Folk, Indie-Acoustic style of music has a splash of New Wave to get your fingers tapping and feet thumping. Their diverse lyrics mesh perfectly with their complex melodies. FIORE "LA collective Fiore stride, in a sense, toward recent bands like Tame Impala and MGMT with their welcome appreciation for psychedelic pop music. Granted psychedelic music has seen its fair share of cliche, but like the genre’s worthy projects past and present Fiore’s LP (self-titled, debut in this case) works as a whole. It’s a record that encourages in the listener that appreciation for the art of tone and statement, in other words… it’s not a throw on and fall in love in 30 seconds type of listening experience. The LP makes its moves sonically in favor of something more substantive. " - blahblahblahscience"LA collective Fiore tread, in a sense, along a similar path as bands like Tame Impala, MGMT and even The Coral with their huge appreciation for psychedelic rock music. Fiore’s self-titled, debut LP is a record that reveals it’s true worth with repeated plays. It wins the listener over as it meanders along accompanied eerie vocals and fuzzed up riffs." - Barry Gruff
