L.A.’s October Residencies: White Sea, Kid Cadaver, and More

The music coming from Los Angeles residency performances this month will soar, bounce, and (in one case) melt concertgoers’ faces off. One choir will even transport listeners to church, albeit with a secular set of hymns. Here’s what you need to catch

Kim and the Created at the Echo (October 5 and 12) and the Echoplex (October 19 and 26)
Kim House and her band open the month with the release of a new EP, “Get Go,” and a lineup that includes the fellow local rockers of Deap Vally. By the middle of the month, the crew will move downstairs to the Echoplex for two final shows. The band has been touring up and down the California coast, with recent shows at the Moon Block Party in San Francisco and the Observatory in Orange County.
Grunge and punk (with its surf roots occasionally showing) and a magnetic lead singer.

Kid Cadaver at the Bootleg Theater Bar Stage (October 5, 12, and 19)
The L.A.-based trio released its second EP, “Roam,” in August, then toured up and down the West Coast promoting the five-song collection. Cadaver has received co-signs from KROQ and ALT 98.7 and has had two singles licensed for use in Showtime’s Shameless.
Think: Exuberant indie electro-pop with yell-along hooks.

Their Wedding at the Silverlake Lounge (October 5, 12, 19, and 26)
The foursome released “Naked,” the third in a trilogy of EPs, in July, with a celebration at the Silverlake Lounge. Since then, they’ve played in and around the area with dates in San Diego and Pomona, but now they’re headed back to where it all began.
Think: Bedroom eyes in midtempo pop music form.

The Silver Lake Chorus at the Hotel Café (October 5, 12, 19, and 26)
The 20-plus members of the Silver Lake Chorus bring choir to indie pop and rock, taking songs written by artists like Tegan and Sara, Beck, and Aimee Mann and turning them into lush vocal arrangements. The group’s debut album came out in June, and it’s garnered attention from the Wall Street Journal and the grown-up hipsters over at NPR.
Think: Lovely harmonies and clever songwriting.

White Sea at the Bootleg Theater Bar Stage (October 14, 21, 28, and November 4)
Since releasing her debut album last year, M83’s Morgan Kibby has been busy collaborating (working on songs with Big Data and Panic! At the Disco) along with composing the score to the upcoming festival-favorite film Bang Gang. White Sea, Kibby’s solo project, is currently recording its newest album.
Think: The scope and electro-pulse of M83 with the pop sensibility of The Naked and Famous.
