Brooklyn-based Boricua Lola Pistola sounds is gritty and “falls somewhere between alt-grunge and noise pop.” Her full-length solo debut album Curfew, out September 29 on Burger Records, following the AJ Dávila produced “Tú Pensabas” in 2015 and last year’s Everyday/Routine EP comes after years of touring with AJ Dávila and Terror Amor. Her music is introspective, contemplative, and “with white-knuckle bursts contrasted by stretches of soft, serene vocals.” Armed with a guitar for every live show and accompanied by Pink Mexico’s front-man Robert Preston on drums, Lola’s thrilling set is as intimate as it a thunderous burst of adrenalized, unbridled energy.
If Witch Hair told you they spent the Winter of 16/17 recording their EP in a freezing cold five story warehouse that may or may not have been a former Uranium processing facility or ballistics lab throughout WWII you might get an idea as to why they are so excited to get out and perform this Spring and Summer. They’ve crafted their songs on tales of motorcycle gangs, psychedelic breaks with reality, and have veered into putting a voice to their political views by hosting large benefits for Planned Parenthood and with songs like “You Are Not A Surface” and “Sanctuary City”. An atypical trio, each person sings and writes their own songs since the addition of Tom Connolly (Drums/Vocals) in November 2016. His presence solidified a sound that is at times psych heavy and droning while managing to maintain it’s melodic roots with Joe Russo (Guitar/Vocals) and Ashley Kenney (Bass/Vocals) singing haunting harmonies to Connolly’s deep baritone.
