O.C. Bands Keep The Good Music Flowing

O.C. Bands Keep The Good Music Flowing

Panoramic and Arden Klawitter + the Powerclaps release killer new albums!

A few months ago if you would’ve asked me to name a local band in Orange County, I probably could’ve only named 1. I wasn't aware of the thriving and growing local scene that Orange County has. In my ongoing quest to find new music to devour with my ears I discovered lots of local bands. I learned about this rad little record label Pacific Nature Records which is owned and run by Alyx Poska. In learning about that label I was given the opportunity to review 2 of Pacific Nature’s newest releases.

Panoramic- Not Exactly

Panoramic is a progressive rock/punk band from Fountain Valley,CA. The album Not Exactly is the newest effort put forth by the dudes in Panoramic. The album is composed of 9 well written songs. The things that stuck with me the most throughout the album were the really cool instrumental parts and the vocals. The 2nd track “Cold” has a basic sounding drum beat but with all the layers on top of each other, that basic drum beat stood out the most. The use of piano on the album wasn't something that was expected. On the song “Okay” the piano starts off the song and then the space sounds come in, so you feel like your in space but with a piano. The idea of spacey sounds might sound peculiar and mixed with piano might sound extra peculiar but you have to listen to it. For some odd reason, it totally works.

Overall, my favorite song on this album was “You Don’t Mean”. The acoustic guitar and the piano work really well together with the layered vocals. The chorus is catchy enough to get stuck in your head all day. The last thing about this song that I really enjoyed were the vocals. The song is 3 1/2 minutes long and the last 30 seconds or so are instrumental. In the beginning of the song the vocals sound pretty normal. During the chorus the vocals change and they just make you happy.

Arden Klawitter + the Powerclaps- Arden Klawitter

Arden Klawitter is a solo musician and for this self-titled EP he used a backing band that he called The Powerclaps.

First things first, the CD packaging for this album is scented, extra points for that alone. I’ve never owned a scented album and now that I do, I want all my favorite bands to scent their albums too.

Right off the bat, this album was interesting, it’s full of interesting instruments and genre changes. The weirdest song on this album was “Naegleria/Bobcat”. It was not a bad song by any means just really weird because it starts out with a fuzzy guitar, then goes soft then at the end turns into a metal song. It added an unexpected element to the song which you wouldn't expect from listening to the rest of the album. “Room Caught Fire” was another song that stuck out because it totally changes the feel of the album from what was previously heard on the 1st song. The 1st song is chill and then “Room Caught Fire” spikes up the tempo. It begins with a driving guitar and drums that reflect that guitar. The vocals come in and everything is pretty much the same sound wise until near the end of the song. The coolest part of this song happens toward the end when this big instrumental part happens. It’s just this cool guitar melody and the drums, pounding bass line and more space noises for the last minute of the song.

On this album my favorite song was the last song “2015”. Lyrically this song stood out, the way it was sung and the feel of the song. The style of the song reminded me of older music, like from the 50’s. The vocals were strong on this song and that added to the style of the song. What stood out the most about this song though were the lyrics. The lyrics “2015 felt vacant” stood out the most because I’ve never heard someone describe something like that. Good lyrics are an important element in a song because that usually means that a lot of thought went into the song.

Having never heard of this guy before, I was impressed and plan on listening to more of his stuff.


Good music is hard to find sometimes but these 2 albums prove that Orange County is still cranking out good music and good vibes.

Top 5 Tips for getting your music discovered online

A musician’s guide to SEO
1345
views

  1. Pick a unique band name

Usually, I’d say the name of a band doesn’t matter; but, in the cyber world, this can make all the difference. Picking a name that is easy to rank for on Google is essential for new fans to be able to find you! Ranking for keyword searches on google is very easy when the keyword or long tail keyword (combination of words) isn’t something many people search for. Let’s take the band “Real Estate” for example. This band has over 1 million monthly listeners, and over 40 thousand Instagram followers. With a quick google search of their name they rank…nowhere on the first 5 pages. Now let’s look at my high school band “Olympic Formal” (this isn’t me trying to plug my music I swear). With just over 50 followers on SoundCloud, and less than 700 followers on Instagram, all our sites pop up at the top of the first page. You think anyone is searching for “Olympic Formal” and not looking for us? PICK A GOOD BAND NAME! 

2. Stop using hashtag music 

When people are searching for new music, a lot of times it happens on Instagram or twitter, but #music has over 180 million posts. You are not going to rank for that hashtag. I promise. Instagram’s new algorithm discourages people from using a ton of hashtags, and doing so can lead to you even being “shadow banded”. So pick 5 or 6 relevant hashtags that are more niche than the umbrella terms people usually use. It’s a lot easier to rank for something like #bostonhiphop than #hiphop. 

3. Make a WordPress

Many people think Blogs are a thing of the past…and they’re kind of right. The likelihood of getting people to engage with a website that’s not a major social media platform isn’t nearly as high as it was in the early 2000’s. However, using a site like WordPress allows you to repost all your pictures and videos from Instagram and Facebook and add “alt text”. Alt Text is the description that is behind the photo that no one sees. Having the name of your band or other keywords in the alt text of your WordPress allows you to show up for searches on google images. 

4. Links are key

Google uses things called “Spiders” to search every page on anything that is relevant to your search. One of the things that these siders look for is internal links to relevant content. So if you want your Bandcamp page at the top of a Google search, be sure to post links to all your social media pages and websites, as well as have other sites (personal accounts/blogs and professional blogs) link your sites within their posts.

5. Content is king

The days of just putting out music are over! Musicians have to realize they are not in the music business, but also the entertainment business! The single best way to get your music discovered is by having something that lots of people engage with. It’s a hell of a lot easier to have 1000 people watch 1 minute Instagram video of a jam session than it is to get 1000 Spotify streams. It’s all about that content baby!
