Alix grew up playing bass and has led her considerable talents to a myriad of projects over the years, both as a recording artist and a touring musician. This work has led her around the world on numerous ventures.
Daisy Glaze is a rock ‘n’ roll duo led by Louis Epstein (Hits, Jump Into The Gospel) and Alix Brown (one half of Angry Angles with Jay Reatard, Golden Triangle). In 2016, Louis and Alix started writing songs and playing live with a 5-piece band sharing the stage and headlining shows at various venues in NYC with The Black Lips, The Coathangers, Curtis Harding, and others. Known for their sweeping cinematic sound that incorporates elements of Ennio Morricone, Jack Nitzche and the much-loved ragged pop of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, they would not be out of place on a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack. In 2019, Daisy Glaze flew to Portugal to record their debut LP with acclaimed producer Sonic Boom (MGMT, Beach House) who was an outsized influence on their sound and songwriting prior to working with him. Album to be released in March 2022.
A Brooklyn-based band whose music blends a punk's sense of casual insouciance with an indie rocker's passion for quality guitar jangle, Roya were formed in the summer of 2014 by vocalist Rahill Jamalifard, formerly of the band Habibi. After winding up a tour with Habibi, Jamalifard was eager to work on a new project, and she contacted guitarist Jay Heiselmann, who had played with the band the Grooms. As Jamalifard and Heiselmann began working up songs, Rahill was contacted by Hamish Kilgour, once a member of the legendary New Zealand band the Clean, who offered to play drums. They also recruited Alix Brown, who filled out their sound on bass. The new group adopted the name Roya, which is a female name in the Farsi language that refers to a remarkable vision or dream. For a while, elf-titled debut album was released in June 2017 Burger Records.
Formed in 2008, the Brooklyn-based garage/post-punk/show band features current and ex-members of Angry Angles and Viva L’American Death Ray Music. They released their eponymous debut EP on Mexican Summer (2009), A forceful, graceless slam-together of dark, strummy pop with party atmospherics and a coldly serious streak of idol worship. They followed up with their full-length album, Double Jointer (2010) on Sub Pop subsidiary Hardly Art.
Jay Reatard's credentials are too numerous to list, but in Angry Angles joining him is Alix Brown, formerly of Atlanta's 'Lids'. Starting their own imprint, Shattered Records in 2004, the two quickly put together the Angry Angles, armed with a range of obtuse lyrics and structures, poisonous hooks from obscure girl groups of the 60s to atypical Wire and Devo covers, it shows the couple's fascination with post-punk's unorthodox songwriting, and a knack for dual lead vocals. A definitive anthology of all the singles was released on Goner Records (2016).
