Beginning in 1991 with infamous psych-rock provocateurs The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Matt Hollywood has trodden many musical paths over the last two and a half decades. From deceptively accessible BJM standouts like Not If You Were The Last Dandy On Earth and Maybe Tomorrow, to the tripped-out folk pop of The Out Crowd, and the hazy elegance of Rebel Drones, Hollywood’s songwriting has wandered through multiple genres, the playful experimentation always grounded in a core of earnest emotion. Drawing on such diverse influences as Cohen, Hazlewood, Morricone, Gainsbourg, and classic blues and country, Hollywood is returning to the road with music from his upcoming WavePOP Records release, as well as some old favorites and never-heard-live rarities.

MAYFLOWER MADAME is a band from Oslo that specializes in a dark and distinctive blend of psychedelia, shoegaze and post-punk. Their debut album "Observed in a Dream" was released last year to great acclaim in major publications such as Drowned in Sound, Q Magazine, Louder Than War and CLASH as well as a bunch of esoteric music blogs. Over the past 6 months they have toured both in the UK, USA/Canada and Germany. They are now current with the single "Drown" which is the first taster of new music since their debut.
"Deeply atmospheric psychedelia." - CLASH
"A magnificent debut that offers an irresistible musical essence of Nordic Noir." - Louder Than War
"Their sneering vocals and wickedly distorted guitar riffs are pure Jesus & Mary Chain, the ominous, echo-drenched atmospherics recall Sisters of Mercy, and the overall and very palpable sense of fear and dread harken back to Faith-era Robert Smith." - BlackBook
“Coming on like a wicked mix of Echo & the Bunnymen and the Gun Club, feeding their paranoid dreams with an unrepentant dose of edgy psychedelia, this Oslo-based band rather surprised everyone by presenting an album full of rich, sinuous texture like not too many manage or even dare to consider in this realm.” - Stereo Embers Magazine
