This June, The Satellite brings three eclectic bands together for an evening of myriad sounds and tunes. Sleep Still is a LA based rock band who draw their influences from Shoegaze, Dream Pop, Post Rock, and Post Punk to produce a nostalgic, passionate and modern soundscape. The Female and male lead vocals blend to evoke an unearthly and melancholy introspection. The dynamic wall of sound guitar layers along with the dizzying synth sounds contribute to the LA natives memorable and expressive sound.
Midnight Faces is a versatile LA duo comprising of vocalist Phil Stancil and multi instrumentalist Matthew Doty. Doty, barely in his teens began making music with childhood friend Jonny Pierce, resulting in a full-length album released by Columbia Records. At the young age of twenty, he co-founded post-rock instrumental giants Saxon Shore with Josh Tillman, releasing three EPs, and two albums produced by Dave Fridmann.
Matthew Doty is the non-singing half of Midnight Faces who elaborates by explaining, “We made this album by ourselves and for ourselves. We made it in my apartment on a computer one track at a time. If you dig the tunes, cool. If you don’t, that’s cool, too.” The album has received critical acclaim from the likes of SPIN, NYLON, AV CLUB, and CONAN O'BRIEN along with several local LA music blogs.
My Double, My Brother is an indie rock five-piece based in Long Beach, California. After meeting in college and playing together in the school’s music conservatory, the band started rehearsing at an old church in Whittier. To record their debut album, they moved into a rundown house in Fullerton to record their debut album What We Found Beneath the Ground, which they self-released in March 2011. Following a warm reception, many gigs and a successful Kickstarter campaign, My Double, My Brother released Infinite Line EP and soon started recording their follow-up LP with producer Jon O’Brien in Orange County at the Music Box. Shelves, their sophomore album came out on February 10, and the single “I’ll Die” has seen frequent play on KCRW’s famous tastemaking radio show “Morning Becomes Eclectic” since its release. Members of the group include Joel Hasemeyer: vocals, guitar; Evan Eliason: bass; Andy Leong: guitar; Matt Bushyeager: drums, percussion; Beau Knechtel: keys, horns.
