Discography

Psychedelic-folk-synthpop band Well Well Well features guitarist Seton Edgerton and drummer Dan Nichols, both from the group Barbarian, which had opened for Arctic Monkeys and toured with Bat for Lashes.

Their debut What Do We Have Here? was recorded at Rarefied Recording and Electric Orange Studio, engineered by their fellow former Barbarian Jon Greene (of Los Platanos, Lowlands, and Plateaus), mixed by Ben Moore, and mastered by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Sound. Greene passed away November 8, 2016, at the age of 35.

Inspired by the sound of Gardens & Villa, who had recently built a warehouse studio on the L.A. River in FrogTown, Seton sent demos to Adam & Chris from G&V, beginning a process that would lead to their 2018 EP, Poptimism. Singles included "Me," produced by Adam Rasmussen and Chris Lynch of Gardens & Villa. The video for “Me” was created by Instagram star Alyssa J and illustrated and edited by Bernabe Bolanos (Chicano Batman's "Black Lipstick"). "The track is '80s inspired pop detailing basic pleasures we want out of life," says Edgerton of the song, whose lyrics include “Have me, Feed me, Hug me, Love me, Need me.”

Poptimism was soon followed by another EP, Ships, produced by Johnny Hanson and Keith Sweaty and was recorded at the Nest in Boyle Heights. Both EPs were mixed and mastered by Cian Riordan (Foxygen, Waaves).

Live gigs in early 2018 found the core duo backed by Damon De La Paz (Fenix TX, Ape Machine, Trash Talk) and bassist Blake Dean (Mrs. Henry, Happy Ron Hill). That summer, teamed up with Bruin for a Choose Your Own Disaster Tour, creating an illustrated 25-page fanzine specifically for the tour with Khene Zine, highlighting the local artists in each market with customized artwork and posters by cult-artist Walker McCullough. "The zine will be a Tour Guide for the Creative Community and sent to the bands, venues, record stores, bookstores, and local influencers," said the band.
