Second Still

Second Still is a three piece post-punk/coldwave band from Los Angeles, CA. Combining the definitive sounds of French coldwave with the unconventional time signatures of No Wave, then layering that hybrid with hauntingly beautiful vocal melodies, Second Still crafts a sound soaked in nostalgia but also one that marches onwards towards the future. Infectious bass lines infiltrate your body and attack your senses. Guitar phrases glide in undulating melodic waves that peak into moments of formidable delay feedback. Heavyweight drum machine beats feel like punches to the gut. Combing the 80s underground for only the best of influences like Xmal Deutschland, Garlands-era Cocteau Twin, Asylum Party, and Opera De Nuit, Second Still invokes the classic wave of La Vague Froide as their sound washes over you.
Originally formed in 2016 in Brooklyn, NY, Second Still has been steadily gaining a devout following in the post-punk underground scene ever since. Ryan Walker (guitar) and Alex Hartman (bass) met in 2007 in Los Angeles, and by the time they moved to New York together in 2011, they had recorded a sizable collection of 100+ instrumental demos. After searching high and low for a vocalist that could match their intensity and creative output, they eventually met singer Suki San, and things clicked right away. Early Forms, the bands four song debut EP, was released in March 2016 as a limited edition cassette. Recorded in a barn in upstate New York over three days, the cassette has long since sold out and is now a sought-after gem. Before re-locating to Los Angeles in November 2016, Second Still hunkered down in the studio and recorded their entire self-titled debut album in just two days. The album came out April 4th, 2017 on Paris-based label Manic Depression Records. Second Still’s most recent release is a five song EP titled Equals, out on vinyl via Belgian imprint Weyrd Son Records, and on cassette through Belgian tape label sentimental.

Juno Francis

Through a pink and pale blue haze she entered our world as the lovechild of a 60s gentleman and an 80s lady. A life filled with adventure, romance and mystical signs carved this feminine creature into a passionate being, floating towards you in an irresistible way. ”If there is smoke there is fire”, you will find it in her eyes…

»Ryskinder (AKA Asaf Eden) melts together Psych Rock, Hip Hop and electronic music and mixes them in a big bowl of crunchy Low-Fi. He has been perfecting his sound for more then a decade of recording, releasing albums and preforming live. Pulsing with powerful middle eastern groove, loopy Rap in Hebrew and lyrics touching both the political and the surreal in a trademark poetic style. Ryskinder is considered one of the most acclaimed voices in Israel's alternative music scene and his unique sound is gaining attention world wide. Ryskinder released 6 albums independently and on Israeli independent labels "Chompi Records" and "Uganda Records". his Lateset E.P - "Depths of the Short Memory" was released on December 2018 on the Dutch label "Stoked 7". his first compilation album "Rak Lhitim" is due to be released this summer on Burger Records. like his music but with more of an emphasis on aggressive groove, Ryskinder live shows are Genre Defying and explosive. He has Played Live in numerous venues and music festivals in israel and toured europe extensively both alone and with his live band - Ryskinder & the New Age. also playing support for the bands "Mac de Marco", "Dirty Beaches", "Psychic Ills" and "Jeffery Lewis". he is currently based in Berlin.« ///

Little League Shows & Powerline Agency prsnt:

Deliluh /// art rock/post-punk/exp, toronto/can, Tin Angel Records

at Schokoladen. doors 7 pm, show starts around 8 pm! after 10 pm: aftershow djs (tba).
»Deliluh is an emerging experimental art-rock group that has solidified a reputation in Toronto as a torchbearer for the DIY music community. Their sound fuses elements of punk, drone & experimental music into a organic, yet fiercely resonating sonic identity. The follow up to their self-produced debut LP ‘Day Catcher’ (reissued by Hand Drawn Dracula, 2018) comes hot off the heels of a year spent tracking fresh ideas to tape in local veterans hall Owls Club. ‘Oath of Intent’ is a summer sibling, one of two albums birthed in the community space last year, and documents the group in its most visceral and cut-throat realization to date. The record's five tracks tell tales that pick apart the conflict and unease within our human makeup, respectively inhabiting its characters and peering through anxious lenses at the past, present and future, with lyrical tenacity and razor sharp tact. Swift instrumental exchanges are opted in preference to layers or blending, delivering an experience front-to-back like a tight collection of hard-boiled short stories. Deliluh’s live propensity to ignore the traditional circuit of bars and clubs in favour of unconventional venues has built a reputation at home, and one they intend to maintain. Over the past few years, they’ve given audiences a variety of performances in bakeries, libraries, apartments, and a decommissioned subway platform. They embark on a tour of the UK and Europe this May, with festival appearances across Canada to follow through out the summer. The core members are also responsible for some of the city’s latest string of house shows, taking place in the living room of their Bloordale apartment; a space known by many as Somewhere Else. The group’s slow-burning force is becoming more potent by the month. Foregoing the clean polish of professional studios for living spaces of contextual importance, Deliluh's dedication to thoughtful writing and analog documentation has been a constant process that's kept loyal fans highly anticipating their culminate fruit in this year’s offerings from Tin Angel Records

»Flennen collective has been very active since its founding in 2013. In recent years bands like Pigeon, Molde, Gilb and Noj spawned from this collective. So it just made sense at some point to create a musical spin-off that captures Flennens approach of community and collectivity. GO LAMBORGHINI GO is years of working in or even creating a musical community put into a big jam. Post-Punk, stoic, intense, inclusive, rough - the kind of set where it just make sense to have the strobe light running for the whole 30 minutes.« (thx billy von der gruppe Trucks fürs info!)

»Montreal’s Corridor take familiar elements but assemble and scramble them in a way you may not have heard before. There’s a twin-guitar interplay that recalls the late-’70s mutant new wave of XTC, The dB’s and The Feelies, with a sense of melody that shows a love of ‘60s psychedelia and sunshine pop. Putting a hometown twist on things, Corridor sing entirely en français. Don’t let that put you off though: the creativity and abundance of killer tunes found on their acid-baked 2017 album Supermercado breaks through the language barrier. Corridor are even better live, with a real joie de rock that knows no borders — guitars slash, harmonies soar, bodies a constant blur.« (-Bill Pearis, BrooklynVegan) ///

»Death Hags is the multifaceted project of producer/multi-instrumentalist Lola Jean. Taking inspiration from artists and producers like Brian Eno or Björk who forge their own musical path, the music of DEATH HAGS travels between worlds, mixing French and English lyrics, catchy melodies and guitar riffs with minimal electronic sounds. Born in the French Alps, Lola lives mostly as a recluse in the hills of East Los Angeles and records a lot of her material in her home studio. DEATH HAGS live performances are always unexpected and can take many forms, from solo electronic sets to full band performances.« ///
