Correatown – the dream-pop project of Angela Correa, which has been called one of the "next big things" by SPIN – will perform February 17 at the Smell. The all-ages show comes as the LA band prepares for a March tour of Germany. LA Weekly said, "We… fell in love with her hooky balladry… You read it here first: Angela Correa… is going to be a much loved L.A. artist in about 10 minutes."
"Turn On Turn Up" postable mp3.

Her music is carefully assembled via drum machines, thrift store
synthesizers, a reverb-soaked semi-hollowbodied guitar, and most of all,
utterly gorgeous vocals, Correatown makes an airy, sound caught in late
afternoon August moments. Earning comparisons to Beach House, Galaxie
500, and Spiritualized, her sweeping scope and warm sheen belie a dreamy
and alluringly hypnotic soundscape.
Correatown's music video for "Play," which is chock full of silly
string, crayons, face-paint, balloons, bubbles, and the band playing a
DIY house show, was filmed in conjunction with OMG! Cameras
Everywhere!, a non-profit organization that hosts arts and filmmaking
workshops for kids.
"Valparaiso" postable mp3.
Her songs have appeared on television in Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty,
Brothers and Sisters, and How I Met Your Mother and in the film "The
Lucky One." Her voice was featured in the Sony Pictures' "Walk Hard: The
Dewey Cox Story" and she wrote and recorded the score for the film
