Utah County Space Rock band Fictionist recently made it to the final four in the Rolling Stone’s You Choose the Cover Contest. Although the band didn’t take home the crown, the guys of Fictionist had their sights on something even better. The band recently announced that they’ve signed with Atlantic Records! Expect big things from this band and plenty of albums to come, but until then you can enjoy two already released albums, Invisible Hand and Lasting Echo. Invisible Hand is a collection of somewhat experimental, somewhat folksie pop tunes, while Lasting Echo sees the band taking an even more drastic turn for the spacey, experimental, Pink Floyd-esque sound. Fictionist is one band you’ll definitely be hearing more from.

One of Salt Lake City’s finest bands, Location Location knows how to get any crowd moving. The electronic duo plays some of the catchiest, beat-driven tunes around, and their live shows are even better. Although the band hasn’t released music in a few years and doesn’t play many shows these days, they’ve left behind two incredible EPs you’re bound to put on repeat all winter long. Start with “Let’s Begin,” “Starpusher,” and “We Are Mondays.”

Originally from Salt Lake City, Toy Bombs currently reside in Los Angeles, where they continue to make music and play shows. Toy Bombs consists of multi-instrumentalists Cole Barnson and Brandon McBride. The two play all the band’s various instruments and together create a New Wave, pop-rock, electronic sound that’s all their own. The duo began playing music together as Kid Theodore along with some other friends. After moving to LA almost three years ago, the band changed names and began recording and touring as Toy Bombs. The duo manage themselves, run their own label – Flat Top Records – as well as book and promote their own shows.
