Lionel Williams (aka Vinyl Williams) is a Los Angeles based artist and musician. His collage art & psyche-pop music fuses vast landscapes, multi-religious symbolism, and the supernatural into a paradoxical whirlpool of "mysticism and sonic matrices".

Created and performed solely by songwriter, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Williams, debut album Lemniscate was released in November 2012. On the surface the record is a flood of ideas and imagery, dashing psyched-out space-rock with layers of kraut and shoegaze.

Lead singles 'Higher Worlds' and 'Stellarscope' are muscular, transcendental-pop tracks led by frazzled melodies and driving rhythm sections. Digging deeper into Williams' world, album centerpiece 'Inner Space' and closer 'Follow In Your Dreams' reveal more intangible, ethereal qualities; the sound of a restless creative interweaving concepts to conjure a truly unique and intuitive experience.

This amorphous sensation is a constant across Williams' mediums. The 22 year old has also exhibited his similarly surreal art across New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Seoul.

Recent support slots include: METZ, Django Django, The Soft Machine, Toro Y Moi.


Through a labyrinth of unlikely events, or some would call miracles, GAZOOTA made itself manifest in the year 2012 within the humble suburban boundaries of Fullerton, California. The four men who call themselves GAZOOTIANS are mere representatives of revelation; guardians of sound and scene as they bring together the assemblage point of Desert, Forest, Ocean, Mountain, and Moon.
Received from the ether, and put into form, the band GAZOOTA shapes itself akin to the melodic whimsy of ’60’s Psychedelia, the avant-garde hypnotism of German Kraut-Rock, the theatrics and eccentricities of ’70’s Art Rock, the tones and vigor of Post-Punk/New Wave, the sweeping textures of British Shoegaze, and the organic-jazz-infused landscapes of Post-Rock, all resting on-top of Afro/Asianic inspired rhythms.
After releasing their earnest and dreamy debut the ‘Galoop EP’ in 2012, most recently GAZOOTA has collaborated with Mutation Records in the production of their first vinyl record. This exclusive 7″ features live studio performances of their singles ‘Desert Movie’ and ‘Heart Wave’. Currently GAZOOTA is recording their debut full-length concept LP and looking to a spectacular release in early 2016.
