Hot Flash Heat Wave's Record Release Party!
with The Buttertones
and Inner Wave

Hot Flash Heat Wave is the brainchild of four best friends from Davis, California. Their debut LP Neapolitan, released in 2015, quickly launched them to the forefront of the Bay Area music scene with its candied hooks, fuzzy guitars and tunes reminiscent of The Smiths gone new wave. The boys have wasted no time following up with their sophomore release Soaked (LP and cassette out June 2nd on OIM Records), introducing a more diverse and groovy approach to their shimmering dream-pop sound.

The Buttertones started their own journey in 2011 as three music
school misfits (or drinking buddies, they say) in the heart of
Hollywood, happy to learn how to to play, produce and perform
but less excited about frequent go-nowhere conversations with
classmates who had little interest in either the past or the future
of music. So that’s why bassist Sean Redman (also a former
member of Cherry Glazerr) felt like he’d lucked out when he
found guitarist/singer Richard Araiza and
drummer/polyinstrumentalist Modesto ‘Cobi’ Cobiån: “Cobi and
Richard were the first guys I met where I thought they knew
what they were talking about,” he says. “They had good
influences—they weren’t just trying to pander.

The Buttertones’ Gravedigging is more a movie waiting to
happen than an album—or a soundtrack just waiting to inspire a
movie, with scene after scene of action, tension and release set
to a sound that takes everything good and true about American
music before the Beatles prettied it up (surf, sweet soul, the boss
saxophone-overdrive garage of the Northwest wailers like the
Sonics) and matches it to punk energy, post-punk precision and
the kind of personality that blows the circuit-breakers at a
backyard party.

Fresh, easy listening, interstellar sounds from the minds of this so-called ‘indie’ group to create an environment for everyone to come together, dance, experiment and trip out.
