LAV.ISH is Living in Our Heads ‘Rent Free’

LAV.ISH’s newest studio album is sweet, melodic, and smooth.

Based out of Los Angeles, California, LAV.ISH is Nim, Carl, Lucas, and Brandon. Carl and Nim are vocalists, while Lucas and Brandon are producers. LAV.ISH was formed in 2017, and has been consistently producing music since; they have three albums to date.

“Please don’t forget the dot in the middle, it’s more than your average dot. DOT stands for Don’t Over Think. It represents their attention to detail and coexistence with imperfection,” they said.

The group makes all the music in house, DIY. Their mission? “[T]o make you feel something. Anything. We don’t care. As long as you feel.”

Mastered by Grammy award winning engineer Mike Bozzi, LAVISH’s latest album, Another Good Day, was released in February 2023. Among the standout tracks is “Rent Free”, a carefree track that reflects the melodic flows that LAV.ISH is committed to producing.

Fans of good-time-guaranteed music should check out this track, available on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.

Stay Afloat with Soft Punch — Above Water

Soft Punch, aka Rye Thomas, of Washington D.C. released his debut album, Above Water on September 15th, after years of working on it.
The album is a labor of love that Soft Punch, the stage name of Rye Thomas, has been working on for years since the diagnosis of his chronic illness. It takes you through the highs and lows, mourning the freedom lost, and celebrating the things that he is grateful for in his day to day life. I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to him about his process of writing the album.

The titles of albums are the first thing that an artist sees. That, and the artist’s name. When I first heard the name ‘Soft Punch’, I was intrigued. It was gentle but intentional. “I don’t know if I had a specific ‘A-ha, Lightbulb’ moment, but I was interested in words that sound good together and have multiple meanings,” Thomas said. “It’s a gentle hit, and a nonalcoholic punch. It’s the image of something harsh and something soft is interesting to me. I think I lucked out.”
