Detour
Detour

The band’s latest release, Detour, expands on ideas developed in their previous venture: creating pop music with a sonic edge.  Although the band never steers too far from its core pop sensibilities, Detour evokes a somewhat darker mood musically than Soft Science’s previous work.

Choose Your Adventure
Choose Your Adventure

Choose Your Adventure is the debut album from Sacramento, California's, Arts & Leisure. Formed in 2011 by founding members of the orchestral pop outfit, Baby Grand, Arts & Leisure strips things down to the basics (two guitars, bass and drums), but ups the ante (and volume) with two singer/songwriters, Gerri White and Becky Cale. The band also features former Baby Grand members Cory Vick on guitar and Tim White on drums.

Charm
Charm

A collaboration between Larsen and Andrew Hoke (AKA Bird Peterson, nationally renowned electronic artist and DJ), Flowerss is electro-shoegaze at its finest—twirling guitars drenched in feedback, atmospheric crescendos, thumping pulse and groovy trip-hoppy rhythm. Throw on the duo’s debut release Charm and you’ll be lulled into a sea of trickling beats before being washed over with a full wave of grunge-inspired guitar and emotive, almost ghost-like, vocals.

Arts & Leisure
Arts & Leisure

'Arts & Leisure' is the fourth release by Baby Grand, and it's most diverse and realized release to date. While continuing their tradition of beautifully orchestrated pop songs in the vein of groups such as Belle & Sebastian and Camera Obscura, this album brings more of the band’s influences to the forefront, and breaks out of the indie pop mold with songs that run the gamut from country waltzes to 1960s-era folk and girl group sounds.

Mixer

Desario returns to follow up their Darla Records debut, Zero Point Zero, with the release of a fresh new offering, Mixer. Built on layers of jangling guitars accentuated with bursts of synths and percussion, Desario's gazey pop is like the welcomed first snow of winter watched through the window of a warm room.
