In recent months, Gardens & Villa have been writing and recording material for a soon-to-be-completed full-length album (their third). After non-stop touring since the February 2014 release of Dunes on the Secretly Canadian record label, the group ended the year with a bang: debuting legendary hip-hop producer N.O. Joe’s remix of the track “Domino” on Wondering Sound in November (featuring additional vocals by Houston rapper Spuf Don), followed by a big SoCal homecoming in mid-December at the Echoplex in Los Angeles.
On the heels of their first vinyl 7-inch on KCSB’s own Bank Burner Records imprint, released in late 2013, Dante Elephante have likewise already finished their first full-length record, which was recorded and produced by Jonathan Rado of Los Angeles band Foxygen.
Details for both these exciting new releases are still be announced, but expect a night of surprises from two of the area’s hottest indie-rock bands.
