Really proud to share this sprawling, gorgeous ballad by Tobias Jesso Jr, “Hollywood”. It was produced by Chet “JR” White in San Francisco.

Gully is “dedicated to the Grotto Family”

“Last Friday at Full Moon fest on Governor’s Island, we were set to perform a headline live set but unfortunately due to travel issues could only perform as DJ’s. The band will be playing a make up show this Saturday 8/16 at Babys All Right, hope you can make it”
The full-band show is presented by Brooklyn Vegan, who happen to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show! Details on how to win those here.

Honored to welcome current Brooklyn resident, Lil JaBBA, to our weird little True Panther Sounds family. Jabba came to our attention as a footwork producer and incredible oil painter who came to our attention through his bandcamp and incredible release on Local Action. The sound on his forthcoming Gully EP is something new, unsettling and powerful altogether. The entire 6-track EP is out digltally next week but you can hear the first track from the EP right now. It’s called Gully and it’s a real journey……More to come next week, you can get the entire EP next week August 19th!!
