DELTRON 3030 RECOMMENDED: FYF FEST

Last labor day weekend I ran my bike into a parking meter (and then because of that into a Stop sign, whose instruction I was clearly unable to adhere to) after far too many cocktails which led to a brutal toe injury and a need for new lens in my glasses…so I’m looking forward to a more music and less booze filled weekend this year, highlighted by the FYF Fest.  FYF is less than a week away and it is time to start mapping out a game plan.  The set times were recently announced and it’s looking like it will be an amazing day.   Planning these things out ahead of time is always a mistake because your friends will torpedo your well thought out logistics by, depending on who you bring: blacking out during the second set, potentially crying, getting lost, threatening to fight hipsters who they know will back down because they are more or less defense-less in their skinny jeans, hanging at the food court and insisting it has been their life long dream to eat 20 hot dogs in one day.  Your best bet is to decide on a place to reconvene at the end of the night and just hope for the best. Even still I can’t help myself so I’ve been mapping out the day in my head.

1:00 The Oak Stage: Magic Kids

Del says: Assuming I will be in Downtown LA @ 1pm after whatever occurs on a Friday night is giving my friends and I far too much credit.  That said if we get there that early this would be my selection.

1:40 The Sequoia StageCults
Del says: It’ll be 83 and sunny D-Town on Saturday. A perfect day for an end of summer music festival.   I can’t think of a better track to start the day with then Cults’ “Go Outside“. That extra 40 minutes will make all the difference for the rest of the day too.  I’m excited to see this band as I only really know three of their songs.  Normally I hate seeing artists whose music I’m unfamiliar with…but I have a feeling that won’t be the case with the Cults.

2:45 The Oak Stage: Best Coast
Del Says:  Best Coast’s “Crazy For You” is slowly becoming one of my more favorite albums of 2010.  I’m surprised this band is playing so early in the day.  I have no grasp on the popularity of bands I guess. To me this is like doing a fantasy draft and watching a stud player continue to go undrafted. “Why isn’t he getting picked? What don’t I know?” are the thoughts that run through my mind as I’m paralyzed with fear.  Note:  Warpaint will be playing over at the Redwood Stage at 3pm.  I’ve seen them twice already so I’ll be passing, but I recommend checking them out if you like all girl bands that thrash..and you might be able to see Shannyn Sossaman watching her sister Jenny Lee rock out.  Rounding out the female driven trifecta for this time block are the Screaming Females. I love their track “I Don’t Mind It”..but I refuse to miss Best Coast.

4:25 The Oak Stage: Wavves
Del says: After Best Coast there will be a nice window of opportunity for people to grab beers, hit the food trucks  God how I hope The Grill Em All Truck will be there. If not I’ll just save my rocking for Wavves.  ”King of the Beach” has been a favorite of mine and the rest of Intraffik since it came out. I’m imaging Wavves will attract a real mookish following full of bros with neon plastic shades and Hayden-esque haircuts but you gotta do what you gotta do.  Fuck I just referenced a Big Brother cast member while also sounding like one. Please kill me now.

5:45  The Redwood Stage:  Local Natives
Del says: I missed them when they toured Spaceland and the Bootleg so I’ll be rectifying those errors on Saturday.  I really wish I saw them at those tiny venues because  I’m going to guess that this band is going to have the biggest daytime gathering of all the bands in the lineup.  They’re the local darlings out of all of these local darlings, David Byrne has given them his seal of approval, and they’re only going to get bigger.

6:15 The Oak Stage: Titus Andronicus
Del says: They rock. Hard. Their show at the Bootleg was the only “indie” show I’ve been to in LA where I witnessed actual moshing.  They should not be skipped!

7:35 The Sequoia Stage: Washed Out
Del says: You couldn’t ask for a more polar opposite band from the previous act.  Washed Out will be a great sonic pallet cleanser and their sound will be the perfect soundtrack to watching the sun set over downtown LA.

8:10 The Sequoia Stage: Cold Cave
Del says: Get your inner Joy Division on with this Ian Curtis and Co sounding band.

9:10 The Sequoia Stage: School of Seven Bells
9:20 The Redwood Stage: !!!
Del says: This is the only conflict I have for the FYF Fest. This is the driving force for today’s piece. A few months ago this would have been a no brainer for me.  I’ve always been quite fond of !!!.  I loved their album “Myth Takes”…but then the School of Seven Bells went and threw a monkey wrench into my plans by releasing “Disconnect from Desire”    This week is the deciding period.  I’ve put SOSBs and !!! in a play list and I’ll see who I gravitate towards by the end of the week…but !!! are already behind the 8 ball because they’ll require a stage change where as School of Seven Bells will offer me the opportunity to stay put.  I’m opposed to walking. Truth be told I think my mind is already made up.  I got hooked on  ”Disconnect from Desire” right from the get go in a way that never happened with !!!’s newest release “Strange Weather, Isn’t It”.  It’s not to say that !!!’s album is bad, because it isn’t, but it didn’t replicate the “Myth Takes” love I once had.  I know they’re going to get their dance funk on so hard on Saturday so that’s the only thing keeping me from inking in the School of the Seven Bells.  Who would you choose?

!!! – Strange Weather, Isn’t It?

__________________________________________________________________
Highlights: “Jamie”, “My Intentions Are Bass”, “AM/FM”, “The Most Certain Sure”
School of Seven Bells – Disconnect From Desire

_________________________________________________________________
Highlights: “Windstorm,” “Heart is Strange,” “Bye Bye Bye,” “ILU”

10:10 The Sequoia Stage: Delorean
Del says: Delorean at the Echo was a great show.  I love The Echo and I love Delorean. Subiza is a fantastic album.  Please go revisit it if you haven’t yet downloaded it.  I have a feeling some babies will be made during their set!

11:10 The Sequoia Stage: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti
Del says: Not only do I love their most recent album “Before Today” but I need to see Ariel Pink as part of a redemption project for them.  You see I saw them earlier this year at Echoplex and of course it was a sucktacular time because…well…no shows are ever good at Echoplex. It’s a fact. I’ve yet to have a pleasant experience there. Echoplex, why can’t you be more like the Echo? Ariel Pink can erase that bad memory with a good set at FYF.


OUT TO SEE: MAKE MUSIC PASADENA

It was off to Make Music Pasadena on a recent Saturday afternoon. After having spent my vacation (a future column) using public transportation, I decided to head on out to Pasadena on a metro bus. It wasn’t a mistake, per say, but it took an hour to get to Pasadena from Glendale. If I was a skilled marathon runner, I would have gotten there in less than half the time. If I had driven, I would have gotten there in less than half the time. Sometimes, public transportation just isn’t worth it in Los Angeles County, I say. You may disagree with that, but let’s just leave it at that, a friendly disagreement.

But that is beside the point, because I did arrive at Make Music Pasadena in time to catch Warpaint on the Main Stage. I’ll describe their sound as finding yourself in a sonic heaven that sends you into a wonderful trance. As is often the case unfortunately (I am learning) at these music festivals, Warpaint had some equipment problems. The guitarist was having to fiddle with knobs throughout the set and eventually said, “Oh no, our bass is cutting out.” The band had a core group of fans. One of the sound guys on the stage seemed to be getting his flirt on with one of the guitarists. And after just a couple chords into their last song, I could hear screams from the crowd. I must say that the band members really know how to use their hair.

Comment:Let’s hear your best call of the wild.”

After Warpaint, I walked across to Kendall Alley (a smaller outdoor venue) to catch Eliza Rickman. I was first introduced to Eliza Rickman sometime last year when she was playing with Aaron Beaumont over at Hotel Café. Her instrument of choice? A toy piano — though she also had a small drum set behind her. She used her right heel to kick the bass drum. Before starting her set, she handed out toy musical instruments to a trio of individuals in the audience. At the start of her fourth song, she said, “People with the toys, this is your time to shine. This song gets me tips at Farmers Markets from kids, because they love it.

After saying hi to a couple friends that I noticed in Kendall Alley, I went back to the main stage to catch The Antlers. The main stage audience section was packed so I headed to the sidewalks on the opposite end of the street. At this point in the day, the sun was shining directly into the eyes of the band and so the lead singer eventually said, “I’m going to put on some sunglasses, because I can’t see you.

For Matt and Kim, the next band on the main stage, I moved back into the audience section. I started out perhaps twenty rows from the stage. Matt and Kim came running on stage, throwing a couple t-shirts into the audience, and with that I surged forward ten feet. After their second song, I couldn’t help but notice that; first, they both had huge smiles (they smiled during their whole set); second, they jumped atop of their stools constantly. Their fun and energizing attitude carried over into the audience. Folks were crowd surfing throughout and there were at least three audience surges toward the stage. By the end of their set, I was four rows out and couldn’t help but wonder how I got there. As for those outside the audience section, they had also found their way into the street, but the security guards came over and asked that everyone move back to the sidewalk. The security guards behind the barricades also were dealing with crowd surfers who were deposited in the photography-only section.

Comment: Matt, “We made a video of this song in Time Square where we got naked. During Coachella, a guy jumped onto the stage and got naked, showing his penis to everyone. He’s now a registered sex offender in the state of California.” Someone from the audience, “It was worth it.

Soundtracks to our Summer: Robotanists

_DSC0339
 

all photos by Jessy Plume for TRAffIK

The darlings of our Summer Soundtrack, Silverlake based Robotanists enjoyed a whirlwind season full of sunshine, radio airplay (KCRW), and lots of new friends. Two of the band members Sarah Ellquist and Daniel de Blanke have taken a few moments to bring you firsthand some of the highlights of their summer, as well as how they feel they’ve grown as a band. They even let you us in on what songs they wish they had written.

Robotanists are:
Daniel de Blanke – guitars, keys, songwriting
Sarah Ellquist – vocals, keys, songwriting
Preston Scott Phillips – percussion, drums, iphone
Keith Boyarsky – bass

TRAffIK: Where can we learn more about your band?
DANIEL: Google “robotanists” or go to http://robotanists.com

TRAffIK: How did you come together?
DANIEL: We were all in other bands, and then left those bands and formed this one. The social lubricant was alcohol and a fondness for screaming at the television. That, and Dostoevsky.

TRAffIK: How would you describe your sound?
DANIEL: Up-tempo sad music for amoral intellectuals
SARAH: Make-up sex

TRAffIK: How does the songwriting process work for you? Where does the inspiration come from?
SARAH: Dan and I are a song writing team, but every song is born in a different way, from a different place. I write all of the lyrics, but sometimes, I write the melody and Dan builds harmony from there, or vice versa. If either of us ever thinks that we’ve written a complete song, the other is there to edit and refine. We take everything to the rhythm section for the final seal of approval… and the rest is history. Lyrics come from a very personal place, but I try to craft them in a way that the listener can interpret as they choose. Music is a personal thing, I want listeners to make our music theirs.
DANIEL: I have three thousand song ideas that are half crafted at any given time. I generally force Sarah to listen to them until she starts singing melodic material.

TRAffIK: Lately you’ve been performing acoustically a lot more than we’d seen previously. Do you have a preference for either performing unplugged or plugged in?
SARAH: I think we all prefer the energy of playing as a full band, but performing with just an acoustic guitar is a great way to really showcase our songwriting. It’s liberating to strip things down and just let the melody and harmony dance with each other.

TRAffIK: What started this trend for you?
SARAH: I suppose you could say that most of our music starts out “acoustic” during the demo phase, but we started performing them that way after some friends of ours (the band Vanaprasta) asked us to come to the Bond St. Lounge at the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills over the summer and play a few songs. The next thing we knew we were getting weekly invites to perform all over LA. (more…)
