Le fomo
Le fomo
Our first EP, "Fear of Missing Out/No," was released on Wiener Records and we won the "Artist of the Month" award from Deli SF when we put out our last avant sci-fi music video "Saganometrics," produced by Slow Clap productions.

Earlier this year we released a new album, "We were never in control," which includes lyrics like "a great mind is androgynous", "tiny moves, words and arms, break your entitlement to me" and "we fall prey to these ways of least resistance, at least resist." We've been growing a local following for a few years, and just returned from a fun and frenzied Pacific Northwest Tour. We put on a fun as hell show, which also includes video projections and various stage antics. One of our favorite recent shows was with Madame Gandhi at The New Parish in Oakland this past fall.

LE FOMO is dance-o-matic gender fuck wave / vibrational offerings for liberation / angsty dirty electro garage punk / dancey noise pop / frenetic synth / melodramatic + minimalist
WASI
WASI
WASI’s music and vigor is an invitation into WASI World: a utopia of love, liberation and a constant challenge of the status quo. Their anthemic songs speak of their experiences as Outsiders and owning your voice in a cloudy world. Influenced by the pop tenderness of Tegan and Sara with the rebellion of The Clash, WASI draws influence from the west coast underground punk scene, late night dance clubs and hip hop production.

“The group is well-equipped to be a part of the resistance, providing sounds and solace for young people coming into their own, just as music had helped them before.” - Billboard
Rice Kings
Rice Kings
Enter a world of queer future magic where dapper dad fashion is the dress code and crowns are optional (though highly encouraged).

Rice Kings are an experimental electronic jazz group based in Oakland, CA featuring Asian American musicians playing all original music that celebrates minorities of gender, race, and sexuality.

Keys extraordinaire Erika Oba and EWI commander Eli Maliwan weave through soundscapes of digital mayhem that is danceable yet harmonically progressive covering important issues such as exploding gender stereotypes and less important though arguably entertaining subjects such as "The Centaur of Attention" and certain condescending robots.
