Los Angeles-based Thumpasaurus are a gang of five superbly-skilled
young American musicians taking hugely divergent influences and
channelling them into something uniquely Thumpasaurian.
These music and film students from the University of Southern California
have honed their unique take on a multifarious swathe of musical
inspirations through numerous live appearances on L.A’s insane house
party circuit.
Thumpasurus offer up their own unique punk/funk stew wherein, hidden
in plain sight and sound, you’ll find traces of Zappa, Beefheart, James
Chance, Funkadelic/Parliament, Morphine, Devo, Talking Heads and
Prince, as well as some rocking heavy metal, free jazz, musical theatre and
even some light opera references thrown in for good measure.
So far, 2018 has seen the band release an EP with legendary house
producer Justin Jay. Consisting primarily of remixed Thump songs, the
EP is out on Jay’s Fantastic Voyage label and has already been played in
by massive DJ’s in the house and techno scene across the country,
including in a EatsEverything’s headlinging set at Ultra Festival in Miami.
Thumpasaurus also debuted a live dance music opera at their first ever
headlining show in Los Angeles, and released their debut album in a sold
out headlining show at the Troubadour. Directly following this release,
Thump caught a plane to Edinburgh where they played up to three shows
a day at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, using their few days off to steal
away and play some quick but effective shows in London.
Think. Dance. Smile. Feel. Thumpasuarus are about to come into your life
and make you do all of the above.
Go see, go hear - you’ll never feel more alive.
Long may you Thump.
Dani Bell and The Tarantist
Dani Bell and The Tarantist
There's a driving haunt at the center of Dark West, antique reverbs ripple out around the edges of vocals. A scene is painted, escape, loss and longing for something more. The light at the end of the tunnel is not quite as important as the tunnel itself. This music is the journey through. Dani Bell sighs over every genre, tip toeing through the spooky diner blues of Crave, raising the dynamic for the soulful Motown strut of Nightfall and whispering mournful melodies over ethereally jarring atmosphere of Hired Hands. She composed the parts herself, playing bass, keys and guitar, but they were perfected in studio by a stellar cast of musicians that make up The Redwoods Music Collective. Cinematic in scope, eclectic in sound and focused in vision.
