"A darker, paranoid underbelly haunts Magnifier from the very moment it opens with a tense hissing static...Filled with intricate instrumental flourishes, every song on Magnifier feels at the cusp of bursting at the seams"
- Jonny Leather (Mecca Lecca Recording Co.)
Gothic Tropic
Gothic Tropic
Their combination of tropical flavor and pre-punk elements dispersed on the stage and poured from the speakers. Bassist Daniel Denton kept a cool demure, but still served too much rhythmic bass for the crowd to handle. The mere image of the smiles on their faces helped show that they too enjoyed themselves just as much as the crowd dancing below." - LA Weekly

Los Angeles' Gothic Tropic introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe playful, but measured and dark with a unique lead guitar and vocal style that recalls catchy elements of pre-punk 70s acts such as Television, and Can.

Cecilia Della Peruti was born in New Jersey and lived with her father, composer and jazz player Carl Della Peruti. She moved to LA at age 11 to live with mother Juliana Gondek, who's performed as vocal soloist with many orchestras worldwide, and has collaborated with such musical luminaries as Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein. Cecilia has worked with Joseph Gordon-Levitt for HitRecordTV and collaborates with Ryan Adams, Jon Sortland of Broken Bells, and has received interest from Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O as a session player and developing artist. LA native and bassist Daniel Denton's signature style has greatly contributed to Gothic Tropic's experimental sound. Having played in early Metric, Denton's bass writing is dynamic and vigorous. He also currently collaborates with Chelsea Wolfe and others. Born and raised in Ohio, drummer Rhys Detrow studied jazz performance and drum set in NYC, and moved to LA in 2010. He's since been gigging in different projects and joined Gothic Tropic in January 2014.
Mock Suns
Mock Suns
Mock Suns is a Philadelphia three-piece, formed in the wake of Giant Mind. With a sound that mixes heady phased-out jams reminiscent of Tame Impala with Grizzly Bear-esque jazz-drone pop, Mock Suns deliver their intimate reverie in patient, foreboding crescendos.
