And now for the third and final song from Polar Bear Club; a sweet little live recording of Screams In Caves from their album Clash Battle Guilt Pride, out now on Bridge Nine records. The boys are currently wrapping up their US tour with Bad Religion (previous Hurley studios visitors).
Hurley Nights at the Observatory in Santa Ana kicked off last night with one of our favorites, Alkaline Trio. Click through for pics and stay tuned for more music nights from us.
Fourteen year old Cody Lovaas is from Carlsbad, California and may or may not be a junior Jack Johnson. He came by our studios where he played the ukulele and guitar (which he's been practicing for 7 years). His music inspired by the beach, longboarding and influences like Jack, Donavon Frankenreiter and Jason Mraz. Check it out.

Fourteen unsigned artists and bands from around the world were brought together to give back to charity and promote unsigned talent across new mediums and demographics. The UNSIGNED|UNREST project put together an album of 17 unreleased tracks, with 100% of the proceeds going to St. Jude's. So if you love music, love giving back and want to kill two birds with one stone, check out the UNSIGNED|UNREST album here.
At the Hurley campus, it's not uncommon to walk through an office building and hear different kinds of (loud) music playing from different desks. We have our own music studio where bands come to record, and if you didn't already know, we hosted some prAt the Hurley campus, it's not uncommon to walk through an office building and hear different kinds of (loud) music playing from different desks. We have our own music studio where bands come to record, and if you didn't already know, we hosted some pretty epic concerts the past few years at the US Open in Huntington Beach. So naturally, when we heard about a band that was "badass and trippy as sh*t," it was impossible to NOT share it with you guys.
After giving Bleeding Rainbow's new album, Yeah Right, a listen, we were hooked. Their sound is pretty unique to say the least: mellow indie meets retro punk rock with some psychedelic distortion and watery guitars. Think Broken Social Scene meets Best Coast in 1967. Sounds up your alley? Get it all on iTunes here.
After five years without a new record, The Bronx is back with their latest offering, an album that is sure to find a permanent home on your recently played iTunes list. You won't find any mariachi rifts (if you know, you know) on "The Bronx (IV)" but you will find the rock mentality you've come to know and love from the LA quintet. Make haste and preview the album here on Rolling Stone. Then do the inevitable and buy it here from iTunes.
Jake and Jeff of Say Anything have started a little passion project with their new band, XO. They wanted to create a completely different sound, and came to record their new 7” (recorded by Parker Case) at the Hurley studios. We think XO sounds a little bit like My Bloody Valentine, with hints of Sigur Ros and Surfer Blood. Enjoy! Video: YB.
