Hip Hop / Alternative Rock / Nerdcore / Punk from Los Angeles CA

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt, tempered by 90s alternative era rock influence, yields a juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world, allowing for a wide, unpredictable arsenal of material ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop.

Coolzey stepped into the public eye around 2005 with a demo album and a series of exploratory DIY tours with rapper/comedian and friend Schaffer the Darklord. Interest spread quickly and Coolzey found himself touring alongside hip-hop legends from Brand Nubian and Jurassic 5 as well as punk rock heroes like Dead Milkmen. Coolzey's first album 'The Honey' was released in 2010 and second official full-length 'Hit Factory' in 2013. In these albums as well as in a number of EPs, collaborations and side projects, he finds his niche as a songwriter, navigating hip-hop, rock, punk and pop in the spirit of genre defying influences such as Ween, Beck, The Beastie Boys and Outkast.

Coolzey's love for multiple genres can also be evidenced in his record label Public School Records, which curates music from grimy underground hip-hop like Bru Lei and DJ PRZM of Spitball to the pop punk ear candy of Lipstick Homicide. In 2014 Public School Records partnered with Fake Four Inc's Four Finger Distro to bring the label global distribution.

Sexy Neighbors
Punk Garage Rock from Brooklyn NY

Sexy Neighbors has been rocking out in the Brooklyn scene since 2008, with a sound that has warped from minimal new wave to dirty garage to trashy postpunk. With yelling. Their new EP "LIHC EP" drops Jan 31st on Kings Highway Records!

"Best band in US recapturing 50s keyboards, 60s fun, 70s punk, 80s harmony, 90s drum and bass, 21st century alien friendly rock. Fuck Emo, Brit fonies, and all other bands that sound alike."

"Sexy Neighbors is a garage band from Brooklyn with a sound that reminds me a little of one of my favorite British post punk bands - The Stranglers, "Black and White" period - I guess because of the relentless organ parts and lead singer Felix Gottdiener's commanding attitude. Native J (the lady behind the keys) also lends her voice to the band's tunes, adding an unexpected, occasional dreamy element, in particular in "Seeds" (streaming below). This is a band that's fun to listen to, and should be even more fun to witness live."

Sexy Neighbors "The Chain"
This slice of slurry, punky hoopla feels distinctly lo-fi and louche, but also barbarian, bohemian and bloody brilliant – and all that despite, sadly, not being a Fleetwood Mac cover. It's also got a firmly foot-stomping bassline and the sort of messy, murmury vocals that positively demand drunken singing along." - Some Of It Was True!

"It's hard to ignore three loft-dwellers from Brooklyn who title their songs after Fleetwood Mac singles and have a lead singer who sounds like a (mostly unintelligible) Gordon Gano while dressing like a member of Team Zissou. So, despite our best efforts, Sexy Neighbors have not escaped our attentions. There's a bristling fervor to their distorted drone-angst meant for headbobbing in the exact abandoned warehouse in which you'll find yourself tonight. Fate, meet circumstance—now drink Pabst out of a mini cooler." -Chandler Levack, Village Voice

Sexy Neighbors: "Sexy Neighbors"
"Sexy Neighbors are one of those bands most people I know would probably consider an "acquired taste," but I'd totally geek out over at a gig—a guitar player who prefers trebly, clean channels and often veers off into his own herky-jerky rhythmed world; what might be a Farfisa organ layered over quirky, arty punk, and a singer who sounds like he's trying to find some sorta sweet spot between Gordon Gano and Chris D. The ten songs here often teeter dangerously on the brink of going on a bit longer than they should, but their sound leaves plenty of room for experimentation and growth." –Jimmy Alvarado, Razorcake
