80's inspired synthpop written, performed, and recorded by Allene Norton.
LoveyDove is the seductive high-grade modernist pop duo of lo-fi indie rock pioneer Azalia Snail & pysch-rock virtuoso musical maestro Dan West.

With their new album ShowStopper, Dan & Azalia pull out all the stops to showcase their uncanny ability to blend anthem rock, bubblegum pop, old-school soul, BeeGees disco, and modern electro-pop in a way that is completely irresistible and immeasurably memorable.

The powerful tour-de-force rock nugget "Crown Dancer" kicks off Side One followed by the super catchy song "Main Course." Their vibrant, lounge-y cover of the Todd Rundgren classic "I Saw the Light" features Allene Norton of CELLARS, whose new album is produced by Ariel Pink and was called one of top 15 artists to watch by the LA Weekly. "Beppe of Italy," is a bouncy and bountiful pop classic sung partly in Italian, written about a magnificent giant cat they met on tour in Tuscany.
Another guest star is the marvelously witty John S. Hall of King Missile fame, joining in with spoken word on "Top Stop," an anti-corporate memorandum. LoveyDove backed up John S. Hall on a recent tour of New Zealand and released a record under the name King Missile IV on PowerTool Records.

Last year LA RECORD debuted the music video for the next song, the hit single "Luka Fisher", a hummable novelty song about the artist catalyst, which features appearances from Terminal A, HOTT MT, Feral Kizzy, and surrealist comedian Trenton Willey.
Just as it couldn't get any catchier, it does so with the deliciously zesty "Instant Joy" and the yearning, desiring "Enuf Days" (with its Donna Summer-like call for endless love.). The Latin-tinged "Retorno del Amor" shows off the romantic side of LoveyDove. Closing the album is the soaring "Lift Off" ~~ which begs the listener to leave the negatives behind, and set oneself on a higher path of enlightenment.

With ShowStopper, LoveyDove has an album full of exuberant and melodious sonic treats, which Dan West and Azalia Snail have carefully constructed with creativity and flair for the sweet things in life.

PANTHAR is a new wave band based in Los Angeles. Melding a range of 80s art punk and goth rock influences, PANTHAR brings a dirty LA edge to its blitzed out dark pop confection.

Taking their name from a ferocious taxidermied bob cat; LA's sci-fi pop rebels Panthar... lead by the anarchic riot grrl visionary, Shelina Louise, whose Kyoto by Canada by LA upbringings and influences have carried over into the kind of over the top, tight, slick, and glamorous prowl that Panthar steps with in the sound of ultra indulgences that bridges the Echo Park mentality, with a Sunset Strip attitude.

If the first single from Panthar doesn't get you out of your seat, might we suggest some sort of electric prod? "Ghost Rocket" is a glammy new-wave rave-up with the kind of surging guitars liable to induce visions of, as the lyrics say, a "radium light shower."
