Michael Richard Klics
Michael Richard Klics lives in a potentially unsound hillside workshop above the 5 freeway in Los Angeles. It is there, or sometimes in the living rooms of friends and family, in front of a 52 inch television monitor, wielding a handheld microphone, he writes songs, often dancing or pacing or talking to himself while life elsewhere goes on as usual, usually.
Ovef Ow
Ovef Ow
Ovef Ow formed in the spring of 2015. Their sound has been described as “surf rock sweetness + post-punk weirdness with lots and lots of farfisa... post-surf?” on Bandcamp’s New & Notable list. The band’s lineup features Marites Velasquez (bass), Sarah Braunstein (drums), Kyla Denham (synth) and Nick Barnett (guitar). The quartet has built a following in the Chicago indie-music scene around their surf and garage/post-punk inspired and multi-vocalist sound. They draw influences from the surf-pop of the B-52s, the driving intensity of Sleater-Kinney and Sonic Youth, and the unconventional art rock of bands like Mothers and Electrelane.

Chicago’s Bret Koontz makes music that can match some of the best tunesmiths & songwriters of the twentieth century." (Impose Magazine)

The result is a collection of tunes that might breeze through your mind as you make your way from the hotel bar to the motel jacuzzi-- shades of Blunstone, McCartney, and Big Star.
