Girlpool Chat With the Amoeblog Before Their L.A. Performance June 2

Posted by Billy Gil, June 1, 2015 10:00am | Post a Comment

girlpool amoebaL.A. duo Girlpool find something new and intriguing among familiar elements on their debut LP, Before the World Was Big. Twin vocals wrap around lonely bass and guitar lines that wander the empty space left by a lack of accompanying instruments, placing the focus on the Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad's vocals, wide-eyed and untamed like two feral children searching for clarity in a supposedly civilized world. Their debut calls to mind indie-rock heroes of yore from The Breeders to Modest Mouse without really sounding like any band before them—a feat in and of itself—singing of the trappings of a typical life ("Ideal World"), endless tour boredom ("Dear Nora") and the sudden nostalgia that hits at the end of your teenage years, where Tucker and Tividad currently find themselves, evoking the image walking to and from school in matching dresses and feeling like you grew up too fast on the title track. Unlike that of most bands, the hype surrounding Girlpool is entirely understandable—it's rare to find music this special.

Girlpool play Amoeba Hollywood June 2 at 6 p.m. I briefly caught up with Tucker and Tividad before the day of their show, which is also the release date for Before the World Was Big.

Sylvan Esso

Sylvan Esso is an indie pop duo from Durham, North Carolina. Singer Amelia Meath (of Mountain Man) and producer Nick Sanborn (formerly of Megafaun) joined forces in May of 2013. Two months later the duo were performing live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Their self-titled debut was released May 12, 2014 by Partisan Records, reaching #39 on the Billboard 200 and #7 on the Independent Albums chart, and selling over 39,000 copies. Paste Magazine named Sylvan Esso's song, "Hey Mami" the #1 song of 2014. The duo's buzz is continuing to grow as they tour across the United States, including playing Coachella in April, and upcoming dates in Europe. 

Amelia and Nick recently stopped by Amoeba Hollywood to do a little shopping. Nick kicks things off with Lateness of Dancers on vinyl by hometown favorite, Hiss Golden Messenger. Amelia digs up a limited 10" copy of alternative hip hop group cLOUDDEAD's Number Five (Mush). They are both big hip hop fans, and Nick particularly loves instrumental hip hop, including Madvillainy Instrumentals. From electronica to sea shanties and from hip hop to experimental, Sylvan Esso definitely have eclectic taste in music!

Shovels rope

Fans of all ages came out to watch Charleston, South Carolina-based husband-and-wife duo Shovels & Rope play a passionate set of songs on the Amoeba Hollywood stage to celebrate the release of Swimmin' Time. Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent brought down the house with their alternative country rock. Everyone was so excited for the new album, even Elvis Costello got in on the action. He showed his support by picking up a copy on vinyl before the in-store and then posed for a quick pic. 

Shovels & Rope's latest album, Swimmin' Time, is the follow-up to their acclaimed 2012 album O' Be Joyful. "Birmingham" (the number one song on American Songwriter's year-end list) and the rest of O' Be Joyful put Shovels & Rope on a larger stage, leading to an appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman, an acclaimed set on PBS' Austin City Limits and festival slots at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza and ACL. Mojo noted that  "their thrilling music rooted in old country with touches of blues and gospel can't help but remind you of Jack and Meg and Johnny and June." You can catch the band as they criss-cross the country playing summer tour dates.
