WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:
Hot As Sun is an artist collaboration formed by Jamie Jackson (singer/musician) and Deborah Stoll (lyricist/visual artist) that has since expanded to a full band. After bonding over a soundbath at the integration in Joshua Tree, Jackson and Stoll found they shared a love of weird sounds, magic houses, Pegasus and bacon. Jamie wrote all of their songs on the omnichord and spent the summer recording the music in her loft in downtown LA with musician WAZ. Music videos and live show projections were created in Deborah’s house in Silverlake.
Signing with Last Gang Records in March 2012, their self-titled EP is due out June 19, with the group currently in the studio working on their debut full-length to be released this Fall.
Hot As Sun’s pop art aesthetic has earned them slots playing events like Peter Tunney’s gallery opening in NYC, Concept LA Fashion Week at Ace Gallery in Los Angeles, Art Basel in Miami, and an underground pool party with water ballet troupe, The Aqualillies. They’ve opened for artists such as Gotye, Foster the People, Phantogram, and Active Child. The bands blissed-out atmospherics and jagged hooks have the critics buzzing – with spins on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, and glowing reviews from taste-makers like Buzzbands, Billboard, LA Time’s Brand X, and My Old Kentucky Blog.
Don’t miss them at the Echo on Monday, 10.29.12 with Robert Delong & HOTT MT!
