Capital Cities
Partnerships born out of a Craig’s List ad rarely end well, and being dubbed the “best band in Los Angeles” by Perez Hilton can be a dubious distinction—unless you’re talking about Capital Cities. Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, the front men behind the breakout pop-rock group are a success story spawned by the Internet that’s continued to blossom. The Los Angeles-based act, which boasts a five-piece live set, took both the blogosphere and the shores of California by storm with 2011’s debut, self-titled EP, and haven’t looked back since. This year’s Kangaroo Court was a worthy follow up, and has erased any doubt that Capital Cities is a one hit wonder. Their electronic-infused pop rock represents all that is right in modern music making, and makes the perfect soundscape for a day at the beach, as long as you’re ready to dance.

Gold Fields
Gold FieldsAustralian pop outfit Gold Fields make '80s new wave-influenced dance-pop. Formed in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia in 2010, Gold Fields feature vocalist Mark Robert Fuller, guitarist Vin Andanar, keyboardist Rob Clifton, bassist Luke Peldys, and drummer Ryan D'Sylva. The band released a self-titled EP in 2011.

L.A. trio DWNTWN churns ethereal synth pop, but at its base strums an undeniable acoustic sensibility. At birth, the band featured an acoustic guitar, slowly replaced with production and synth. Debut "See My Eyes" sparked a fire when French label Kitsuné culled the title track for its fabled compilations last summer, and just recently they selected another DWNTWN track ("Move Me", a collab with Jhameel and Giraffage) for the new Kitsuné America 2 compilation released on April 30th.   “Move Me” reached #3 on Hype Machine’s popular chart.
DWNTWN's four song EP, The Red Room, is available now.
