Tiny Stills will be releasing Laughing Into the Void on June 1st. Ahead of it’s release, Kailynn put together a playlist of her favorite fellow LA artists. You can read all about her picks and listen to the playlist below.
Modern Huge – “My Feelings for You are Complicated”
Charo Molina of Modern Huge is one of my absolute favorite humans in LA. We’ve been through hell and back together and she did me the honor of letting me produce, engineer and mix this track for her (as well as sing on some of it.) So I may be a little biased but I truly admire her songwriting and performing and have been a huge fan of hers from literal day one. Modern Huge is a gem in LA, and has more music on the way in 2018.
Blushh – “There for You”
Shab is awesome and super active in music community in LA and is really supportive, kind, creative and inspiring. I also love this track so hard because I’m a huge fan of great hooks and I could listen to this song on repeat all days. This gets stuck in my head a lot, and has a great chorus you can flail around to.
Pacific Radio – “Katie”
I really enjoy songs that I can daydream to while you’re driving, and this one is the perfect one to listen to on a road trip while you’re watching the world pass you by outside.
The Gutter Daisies – “La La La, Blah Blah Blah”
Ok these guys and I can for sure bond over our love of early 00’s pop/rock and def Green Day. They remind me of everything I loved about American Hi-Fi too, and I think they’re incredibly charming.
Jenn Champion – “O.M.G. (I’m All Over It”)
I love this song because I love 80’s electronic slow pop vibes and her vocal performance in this song. I’m also a big fan of a clap with a big reverb, and this gives me great new Tegan and Sara vibes. If you like a catchy electro-indie pop then look no further.
Janelane – “Killing Time”
I’m a fan of dreamy indie pop and Jane Lane nails it. Chill, dreamy, sparkly, lo fi, and great rhythms in those melodies. I love this song.
Mourners – “Masochist”
I like Mourners and this song in particular because of it’s old school Weezer vibes. Mourners should be an LA fave if you’re into solid rock jams!
Sleeplust makes super catchy Electro indie-pop. Its total ear candy, so if you love slick productions and groovy melodies, you should definitely check out Sleeplust.
Dresage – “Center”
This is the project of my former bandmate Keeley Bumford and is super cool electronic indie-pop but definitely has some jazz elements mixed in. This song in particular is a beautiful mix of textures and floating melodies.
Luna Shadows -“Waves”
I firmly believe Luna Shadows is the electro pop goddess that LA needs but doesn’t deserve. She’s got great choruses, and theres no hiding mediocre songwriting with cool sounds- these are actual great songs with great electronic production. She’s a producer as well as a songwriter, so I think Luna Shadows is an artist that can attack on all fronts.
Emma Cole – “High Times”
If I had to compare Emma to another artist, I’d most closely say it’s Amy Winehouse. Emma really bares her soul in her music and it’s a beautiful thing to witness.
The Manx – “Blood Gold”
The Manx are a punk folk band and they’re kind of creative geniuses. These guys are almost always half naked, covered in paint, and doing something super cool to compliment their energetic, chaotic punk folk renaissance.
Yellowbirddd – “Who is Your Lover”
I’m a fan of sad emo acoustic rock and I feel like Liam of Yellowbirddd is such a great emotive songwriter. “Low Shoulder” is also another one of my favorites.
Lucy & La Mer – “Rebel Babe”
Lucy and I met playing some shows together and I’ve admired her from afar for a while, and her new single “Rebel Babe” has an edgier take on indie pop/rock.
Lauren Ruth Ward – “Make Love to Myself”
Lauren Ruth Ward is Mick Jagger. If you’ve seen Lauren Ruth Ward live, you know what I’m talking about. She’s a powerful front person and a force to be reckoned with. This song is also my favorite one I’ve seen them do.
