IN-STORE: CLOUD COVER & SOFT FANGS TONIGHT @ 7 PM!!!!























Two bands. One night. One loft. Yeah, that's right, we've got a double whammy for you TONIGHT at 7 PM as Cloud Cover AND Soft Fangs play Origami in celebration of their new split 7"!

Though stylistically different, both Soft Fangs and Cloud Cover share a similar appreciation for the emotional power of gentle sounds. New York's Soft Fangs is the project of John Lutkevitch who plays a ramshackle and, yes, soft variation of indie-rock highlighted by beautiful folk melodies. Los Angeles' Jenny Tuite, who records as Cloud Cover is a practicioner of sparse, lonesome indie-pop held together by her reverb drenched voice and some spacey, dubbed-out instrumentation. I'm thinking we should invest in some candles for this one...

IN-STORE: CLOUD TONIGHT @ 7PM!!!

















Tonight at 7PM, Cloud will be gracing our loft and filling our store with their infectious, psych-pop sounds.

Cloud is the project of Angelino, Tyler Taormina. While his critically acclaimed debut LP, Comfort Songs showcased a damaged, emotionally raw side of Tyler's musical persona, Clouds new record, Zen Summer is an optimistic record about moving past hardships. This newfound PMA is instantly apparent in the warm, reverb drenched psychedelic swells and beautiful, Beach Boys-esque vocals.

IN-STORE: Nedelle Torrisi TONIGHT @ 7 PM!!

Come hang out with this cheeky chick TONIGHT in the OV Loft!!

Nedelle Torrisi has a voice for the ages, she is all heart and no gimmicks. What a relief in a world full of fake and processed everything. Her new album, Advice from Paradise, released on Drag City, is timeless modern pop. It was produced by Haunted Graffiti whiz kid Kenny Gilmore.

This beauty is not only a talented musician that has worked with the likes of Ariel Pink, but she also spends her spare time giving actual advice to Los Angelinos and others, and if we can say so, its always quite witty. And as much as we love her Advice column here at OV, we love her music even more.

Give Nedelle a listen, she may just change your outlook on life. TONIGHT. 7 PM. OV LOFT.
