As Warm Drag, Los Angeles' Paul Quattrone and Vashti Windish blend their garage rock roots with a record store's worth of influences -- including dub, hip-hop, harsh noise, and minimal synth -- into a sexy, subterranean sound on releases such as their 2018 self-titled debut album.
Quattrone, a drummer for Thee Oh Sees and a former member of !!!, reconnected with Windish, a vocalist formerly of Golden Triangle and K-Holes, by chance in Los Angeles. The pair soon began mixing her commanding vocals with his sampling skills, and Warm Drag were born. After spending some time gigging and DJ'ing around the city, in August 2018 the duo released Warm Drag on In the Red.
Based in Philadelphia, Lady HD is a Funk and Psych/Soul band conceived by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ciaran Wall. Originally a collaboration with LA producer, Dusty Moon, the band has taken on a life of its own.
With Ciaran at the helm - alongside an incredible team at a local recording studio, Kawari Sound - he has spent months writing and recording. Alas, “La Chifa” is born a 2 Part Release. Not only is that the name of the newest EP to be dropped in early December, it is also the embodiment of musical elements of this project that include dashes of 70’s Philadelphia Soul and Funk, psychedelic soundscapes, and growling guitar tones.
A once pop-heavy, production focused direction has shifted into an earthy mix of Philly soul, distortion and Hispanic polyrhythms. Brought up in an Hispanic home, the music derives stylistically from his Latin, Peruvian roots. With a live performance not to be missed, Lady HD is making some noise in the Philadelphia Music Scene.
