Orbit 17 is an indie-rock band based in San Jose, CA. Founded by Jamie Brite, Misha Guiffre and Cliff Nichols in 2022, Orbit 17 exploits the capabilities of modern technology while remaining emotionally grounded and accessible. The music explores the conflict between the digital and the analog, and forces the two into an uneasy momentary harmony. Inspired by the psychedelic funk-fusion scene that Jamie grew up with, Orbit 17 drenches these roots in soaring synthesizers, ethereal vocals and raw, expressive guitar work.

RADIO VELOSO is an instrumental four-piece from San Francisco, CA. Their sound is an intermingling of afro-funk, trippy psychedelia, 90’s hip hop and 60’s soul that can be traced back to artists like Money Mark, The Budos Band, and Tommy Guerrero. Since their inception in 2017, RV has released 3 EPs and performed over 80 times across Bay Area stages. Armed with a batch of new music, 2023 will see the band releasing a new full-length album and an EP while continuing to showcase their live performances.

KIM is an Oakland based trio exploring the sounds of doom and horror. In 2019, Love Lion released KIM's self-titled cassette, a six song EP on mythology, iconography and monsters like Nero and Freud. Their upcoming album, set to release this summer, is filled with increasingly wild, sprawling and pissed off sounds.

On Friday, April 28th @ 10AM PDT, Little Citrus sits down with Luz Elena Mendoza Ramos, lead vocalist and producer of eclectic indie folk pop band, Y La Bamba.

To declare one thematic narrative from Lucha, Y La Bamba’s seventh album, would be to chisel away a story within a story within a story into the illusion of something singular.
