Bloody Death Skull belie their macabre name with a fun yet smart combination of lo-fi folk, garage rock and punky pop. Even when the local group cover a morbid song like Leon Payne’s endlessly disturbing “Psycho,” on their 2016 EP, The Haunting Of, they give it a refreshingly cheery twist, with jaunty banjo twisted within ghostly girl-group harmonies and lead singer Daiana Feuer’s earnestly cracked delivery. Cutty Flam are a San Fernando Valley trio who churn out stripped-down garage rock on their 2014 Burger Records album, Robot Heart. They invoke the low-key charm of Buddy Holly and Jonathan Richman, but there’s also something weirdly unique about leader Cutty’s insolently romantic vocals. Ramonda Hammer are a comparatively heavier quartet, with vocalist Devin Davis drowning out her own introspective musings with thunderous grunge guitar.
