The Los Angeles-based sextet – vocalist James Mason, keyboardist Emily Dickinson, guitarist Jonny Vesely, bassist Miles Franco, backing vocalist Aimee Proal and drummer David Allen play a sleek, souped-up style of synth-pop that equally takes its cues from the current crop of genre peers like Walk The Moon, Smallpools, CHVRCHES and Cherry Pools, but also legendary acts like The Ronettes and The Beach Boys. The band’s EP, DON’T LOSE YOUR HEAD, recently re-released by Selma Records with a few re-imagined tracks, swirl these decades-spanning influences and an overall indie aesthetic to create a blend of pop and rock that’s all at once topical and timeless.

PBR officially added the words "Blue Ribbon" to the bottle in 1895.

Learn more about the artists below:
Defined by its influence of dream pop and indie rock, Bed Scene expresses a sincere interpretation of indie psychedelia and bedroom pop. Most recently, Bed Scene has released a new EP, titled 'Dulcinea' on May 30, 2019. The EP is composed of 6 tracks, featuring sounds inspired by Indie Rock, Canción melódica (Spanish melodic songs), and Hypnagogic Pop. Dulcinea is the second release from Bed Scene since January 2018.
Airhockey is a shoegaze/indie rock band from Miami, FL formed throughout 2018 and comprised of members Melanie Sarria, Sebastian Hidalgo, John Olin, and Mike Diaz. This four-piece outfit stems from the suburban outskirts of the city. Their driving rhythms and dreamy vocals complement each other as themes of bittersweet affection and coming to terms with change engulf the listener with impelling force. Lyrically, you can hear the intimacy of defeat, solitude as well as the darker, often unspoken sides of endearment. Light and washy vocals with piercing leads, melodic bass lines and chugging drumbeats perfectly come together to bring you something new yet reminiscent of 80s subgenres.
Vagnauts is a four-piece spacey surf rock band from Miami. They sing about the inner works of romantic relationships, from a vulnerable perspective while also advocating about the “two-facedness” in the underground scene. The four members have different tastes in music that each one has contributed towards creating a unique sound. Vagnauts is composed of Cecilia Martí (lead vocals/ukelele), Kristi Lÿnx (bass/harmonies), Ally B. (drums/thundah), and Max Ross (dreamy guitar melodies).
Glass Orange is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Melanie Cruz. Throughout the writing process, the songs began to take on a character that demanded a bigger sound to match the heavy emotional beats found in her music. After recruiting a full band of talented local musicians, Glass Orange began to gig relentlessly in the buzzing South Florida music scene. Her latest single, “Is This Love?” is an acoustic bedroom pop ballad turned up to 11 with a driving low end and shimmery vocals to take you through the highs and lows of discovering a new relationship.
