Oliver Riot

Oliver Riot is the project of Los Angeles-based busking twin brothers, Benjamin and Alexander Moore, originally from New Mexico.

Shortly following their move to Los Angeles, Oliver Riot took home first place in the Grammy’s annual “Rock The Mic Competition”, showcasing emerging California artists, and were awarded studio time with legendary producer, Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses, Metallica).

‘Ivory Black’ has been taken from their debut EP, ‘Hallucinate’, which has been produced in the back room of a Korean Church. Alexander lived in his van parked outside of the church while creating this record, and continues to do so while recording the duo’s next album.

Imperial Mammoth – The Last One To Leave The Party

Imperial Mammoth

Imperial Mammoth

Imperial Mammoth is a L.A.-based band formed by Leonard Jackson and Laura Jane Scott.

They claim to make the ground move and we like big claims at Indietronica.

‘The Last One To Leave The Party’ is full of softly spoken words of slight melancholy with a sexy pop punk vibe. It’s hard to believe they only have 180 followers on Soundcloud.

The impressive eleven track album, ‘Gold Confetti’, was released on 24 June 2014 via Bleed 101. Purchase it here.

UK Tour Dates 2014
