It’s no surprise we’ve all been slaving away on a million creative endeavors all year — hopefully we’ll have a new ROBOTANISTS record for you soon! In the meantime… go see Daniel performing with some of our friends!

Head over the Satellite tonight to see Daniel perform with SEVEN SATURDAYS.

and on 9/11 See him on stage with AVID DANCER at the Bootleg Theater.

PS. tune in to Cartoon Hangover at 1 pm PST to see the latest episode of Bravest Warriors — scored by Daniel!



Sarah & Daniel will be performing next week as WESTERN BELLS. Join us and hear some new music performed acoustic in an intimate space.  Daniel will also be joining our friends SEVEN SATURDAYS on stage.  Hope to see you there!


ps. Don’t worry, ROBOTANISTS will be back on stage eventually… we’re just enjoying the summer and taking our time as we work on another record. Thanks for sticking around! See you soon! xo

New music, films & side projects, oh my!

This summer, Daniel and I (Sarah) will be scoring and writing original songs (as WESTERN BELLS) for an upcoming film with a story we’re excited to help tell through music.

Platonic Solid is the story of twenty-somethings Parker and Madison, who after failing at heterosexuality, discover their own truths in the face of heartache, experience the difficulties of coming out, and re-define what it means to be “soul mates.”


The film’s amazing writer/actress/filmmaker, Melinda Stephan, would love for you to get involved! Help her produce the film by contributing to her Kickstarter campaign through July 17th, and get rewarded! DONATE HERE!

Platonic Solid, the film and soundtrack will be out later this year. Learn more about this musical project at WesternBells.com or come see us perform live at Desert Nights @ the Standard on July 17th
