MainMan
MainMan
Dwelling somewhere between the grandiose rock of Pink Floyd, the experimental staccato of Built To Spill and the shuffling disco of Earth, Wind & Fire lies MainMan, a Southern California quartet of artists born from frustrated prior incarnations and longtime friendship. Their debut EP “Mistaker” featuring the first single “WWH” (What Will Happen) is a true departure from the ordinary. Singer Morgan Demeter’s plaintiff and urgent vocals alternately sooth and jar as he wrestles with themes ranging from the understanding the human experience to examining our relationships between one another. Backed by former Bear On Fire members Chris Mintz-Plasse and Nick Chamian, and Fig's Vision's Mike Musselman, Demeter’s melodies float among ethereal yet strangely familiar tones. Indeed what truly draws you into MainMan’s songs is their musicality, originality and knack for making the unpredictable seem effortless.

James V
James V
James V (James-the-Fifth) is an LA-based recording artist whose debut EP San Narciso (SAN-Nar-Kee-So) was released in December 2016 on Marriage Records. For over a year, James toiled in his asbestos-rampant home studio for countless hours “recording” (i.e. browsing FB, editing the Wikipedia page for John Pesci, tracking guitar, re-editing the Wikipedia page for John Pesci) his new musical venture. Secluded in this haze, he created San Narciso, an oblong dreamy stew of psych and funk with elements of Reichian minimalism, which his guitar teacher of 10 years referred to as “Morrissey jizz”. After emailing out his EP link to countless interns across the globe, James found a home in Marriage Records, which has released albums by artists such as Dirty Projectors and tUnE-yArDs. Live he is joined by a talented amalgam of connections from past college jazz bands and Craigslist personals -- Daniel Seman (guitar), Kirby Ditto (guitar, keyboards), Shannon Cain (bass) and Max Kelly (drums). His EP is available now on cassette at Burger Records and Gnarburger Records.
