Gardens&Villa is the project of five college friends from Santa

Barbara, formed following the collapse of a noisier post-punk band and a

hitch-hiking journey up the west coast. Members Chris Lynch, Adam

Rasmussen, Levi Hayden, Shane McKillop began playing in earnest as

Gardens & Villa in 2008. The name is pulled from the location of

their house on Villa Street, and the property's lovely garden to which

they tend. The music they make is very much connected to coastal city

they call home -- the stoney bike rides, dance parties, a scene free of

judgment. For two weeks in the summer of 2010, the band camped behind

visionary and now-labelmate Richard Swift's Oregon studio. No shower, no

kitchen, but all the magic you could ask for. After taking a band oath

to always play all parts live -- a la Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense

-- the band added member Dusty Ineman to supremely execute the live

incarnation of the band.
