- Venus and The Traps – Punk, lo-fi garage sounds, with a surf accent from Indio, CA. Song below is something that can be related to all, partying too hard in the night and going to work the next day.
- Deadpanzies- Feminist sounds from Oakland to Los Angeles.
- Bad Bikini – Moody-pop to listen to when menstruating, from Los Angeles. Recorded by Chris Magallon from Pocket Rockets.
- VAJJ – All girl garage rock band from Orange County, that embodies the sweeter side of the girl sounds, leaning towards the burger-esqe route; Ryan Frailich and Melissa Brooks, of The Aquadolls, recorded their latest track, released last month.
- Beach Bums- Surf-psych coming from Covina, and fits into the current music scene; pretty catchy and not that Burger-esqe sounding.
- Feeling Feelings- Three-piece girl band from Los Angeles making sweet, pizza-surf, with vintage flare, music for the world to sing to when driving down a coast…or in front of a picture of water.
