Monoculture is a Dallas psych rock four-piece. What once started as aimless jams between founders and longtime friends Olan Mijana and Nick Leibold became something with a little more purpose when the two completed a four-track demo while living 300 miles apart. While their first record left the impression that there was still some soul searching for them to do, their second, titled Blueprint for Dysfunction, sees Monoculture truly finding their form with something more cohesive, conceptual, unique -- and jazzy.
Milwaukee, WI based electronic artist “LUXI” has been refining her musical process for years, while this past year finally finding her stride in the hypnotic dance based electro pop niche, with raw vocals and emotional melodies, she draws much inspiration from personal and relatable topics, to express them in a way that can connect with others.
Addicted to the DIY underground, she prefers small intimate shows where the experience can truly become a magical connection between performer and audience, drawing listeners in with hard-hitting beats and catchy bass lines, they will be sure to walk away from the night with a memorable experience.
Dark and blurry experimental pop created with guitar, voice, tape, synths, and electronics. Sometimes the sounds are more a meandering search for textures and artifacts than complete songs.
2020 releases: “This is Also the Place,” which is a structured set of lyrical songs, and “empty space//sacred place,” which is a collection of more ambient and textural ideas.
