Fell Runner
Fell Runner
This isn't your typical Los Angeles four-piece rock band. With three singers who are capable of lead vocal duties, Fell Runner deftly combines the complex vocal harmonies and West African rhythms. While the technical abilities of this band are show stopping, it's the songs and lyrics that capture listeners, drawing them into a rollicking polyrhythmic sound.

"...they have an instinct for the raw, ear-splitting sonic energy it takes to get a crowd to go nuts." -LA Weekly

Fell Runner has frequented Los Angeles clubs including The Troubdour, Echoplex, The Teregram, and a month-long residency at The Bootleg Theatre and have opened for artists Julia Holter, Big Thief, Greg Saunier of Deerhoof, Arone Dyer of Buke & Gass, Here We Go Magic, and Tortoise.

Olivia Kaplan
Singer-songwriter Olivia Kaplan describes herself as a “keen emotional note-taker,” and what the Los Angeles native inventories on her sophomore EP “At the Seams” is rich in sagacity and musicality. The follow-up to 2014’s “Goddamn I Miss You,” released after returning to L.A. after the time she spent studying music in Montreal, “At the Seams” was produced with subtle flourishes by Adam Gunther (with whom she has collaborated in his experimental project Dzang). Kaplan’s lustrous voice (not to mention overall sensibility) often recalls Aimee Mann. And she does not reserve her askance glances for her other halves. “This Is What I Do” confesses to her own recklessness with relationship currency; “Barely Above” floats in and out of emotional limbo; and “Hear/Here,” with its lap steel, aches with the desperation that comes from feeling hopelessly disconnected from the person sitting right across the table from you. “Thought I could tell you with a stare / but you were looking over where,” Kaplan sings. She dedicates the songs to “anyone who’s working to fix all the tears in the fabric,” and indeed her diaries make a nifty cheat sheet.
