We are thrilled to learn local bands are playing at the number-one music festival in the world.  Moving Units have played Coachella, and brightener played Coachella at the first weekend. According to the CV Independent, Will Sturgeon of brightener has been in the studio with the Flusters, helping them to produce their upcoming EP.  “Given I do all my own arrangements, I’m my own producer,” Sturgeon said. “Producing another band has always been a dream and a goal of mine. This is the first project for me to start with, because they’re really guitar-based surf rock, and I was in a surf-rock band in college. I understand what they really want, and I think we got some really good takes in the studio. … Doug was looking for another outside perspective, because they’ve been living for the songs for so long, and I know what that’s like. I care a lot about songwriting, and I spent about a month with them in their rehearsals, and if I had a suggestion, I’d throw it out there. A lot of the songs have become more concise, I’d say. That was the goal. It all sounds so colorful, and it’s been really awesome.”
