Full-length solo debut album Curfew, out on Burger Records!!

Following up last year’s premiere of the AJ Dávila produced single "Tú Pensabas", Discos Diaspora is proud to release Lola Pistola’s newest singles “Everyday” and “Routine”. Currently based in Brooklyn, the Puerto Rican musician has been crafting a more raw, acoustic-inspired sound joined by personal verses within multi-layered atmospheric melodies.

“Dancing around flowers / Crying overwhelmed / Laugh is not an option when you fight,” sings Lola Pistola in the song “Everyday”. The up-beat surfy strums and echoed pop-vocals of the track contrast with the themes explored in the lyrics, coincidentally the musicians favorite dilemmas: daily wanderings, boredom, and empathetic behaviors.

“Routine” is a chaotic noisy ballad. With evocative mellow vocals swimming straightforward alongside a series of a continuous thrumming guitar riff that would only be released after the emotive soft-pitched chorus, “How long do I/How long do I wait?”

RBMA Panamérika has described Lola Pistola’s sound as “raw and melodic”. A full-length album is in the works with some tracks mixed by producer Héctor “StoneTape” Hernández (fAi, Carnales).

Liz Cooper & The Stampede
“It started with golf clubs and country clubs, but now it’s all rock clubs,” Liz says, giggling. She spent the majority of her life developing her golf skills, only to drop her college scholarship to move to Nashville and pursue music. “Writing songs and playing the guitar came as naturally to me as golf did. But music tickled my brain in a way nothing else ever could.”

But, Liz didn’t know a soul in Nashville when she moved. So, she went and got a job at a familiar place: a country club. “Liz may not have known anyone when she moved here,” says the Stampede low-end provider Grant. “But now, I feel like she knows pretty much every person she walks past. She just doesn’t stop smiling, and people don’t stop smiling back.” Coincidentally—or not so coincidentally cuz, well, Nashville—some fellow co-workers at the country club also had a band. They called themselves Future Thieves, and they offered to record Liz’s first EP, Monsters. After that, Liz began writing songs as frequently as she smiles. She formed a band with Ky Baker on drums and Grant Prettyman on the weird long guitar, and they recorded the Live at the Silent Planet EP. And now, there’s enough new songs to record a full-length album.“The record we’re working on now is a combination of Liz’s darkly-lit, reclusive songwriting habits, and Grant and I’s Rolling Rock induced rock and roll” chimes Ky. “It’s about bringing our different styles together to create something that makes us all question what kind of music we even like anyways.”
