jubilo drive
Premiere: Sleep Can’t Stop Jubilo Drive on Their New Album Late Night, Early Morning

The sunny quintet that Angelenos may know as Jubilo Drive almost called themselves Thursday Night Taxi Service. It has a neon sheen to it, though band names should not have that many words or letters. The phrase was used by the band’s previous drummer, Eric Cruz, as the title to his college radio show. One […]

Flock of Dimes and Madeline Kenney Announce Surprise Split and Tour, With LA Date at Moroccan on April 23

Every friendship between musicians ends in collaboration at some point or another. In the extreme case of a bond like the one shared between Jenn Wasner (aka Flock of Dimes, and half of Wye Oak) and Madeline Kenney, that collaboration takes on a life of its own. Wasner produced Kenney’s verdant record, Perfect Shapes, toured […]

Paul Bergmann and the Fair Moans
Premiere: Try Not To Get Caught in Paul Bergmann’s “MaL.A.ise”

Our sunny city provides plenty of reasons to brood. Recently, the rain has not been a positive influence on anyone’s mood. Though he doesn’t officially live here anymore, Paul Bergmann can relate—he wrote a song to that end. “MaL.A.ise” will appear on the next album from the Fair Moans, Make Yourself at Home; listen to […]

Premiere: Jonny Kosmo’s New Single “Jessica Triangle” Promotes Community—See Him at Highland Park Ebell on Feb 27

Songwriting depends on hyperbole. The most common topic, love, is only spoken of at the extreme. We have the classic Dolly Parton line, “I will always love you,” which is the polar opposite of Cher’s sentiment: “Do you believe in life after love?” The feeling will either stay forever or kill you, according to these […]

Jenna Lotti
Premiere: Fame Haunts Jenna Lotti in Her New Single “Hollywood”

The new single from Jenna Lotti, premiering today, is a perfect example of expectations versus reality. It feels similar to the Nicolas Winding Refn film, The Neon Demon: ethereal production clouds the story of a rising star. Shortly after Lotti wrote it, she herself would move here from Boston; in spite of that, “Hollywood” doesn’t […]

New Single from The Dumes Finds a Way To Convey Their Love—Celebrate Its Release on Feb 2 at the Peppermint Club

At any given point in this newcomer’s past, she could have been a music teacher, professional snowboarder, vocalist in a band, or private poet. Today, Elodie Tomlinson fronts The Dumes which has just released a debut single, though her presence and story are enough to make her one to watch. That single, “More Than Physical,” […]

Premiere: Rachel Goodrich is Feeling “Gucci,” According to New Song — Release Party at No Name on Feb 1

Designer idolatry is a real phenomenon. There are brands for everything, resulting in entire Instagram profiles constructed as a monument to Adidas or Louis Vuitton. Local musician Rachel Goodrich spins a tale on her new single “Gucci” using this thread of an idea, turning common label-flaunting into an exercise of self-love. See her perform at […]

Premiere: In New Song, Gabriella Rose Reveals She Never Stopped Grieving

Nick Cave has been taking questions from fans via the Red Hand Files, and last October he published a submission from someone who had been dealing with many deaths in their life. The question, like most on the site, was spiritual in nature, and Cave began his answer with wisdom that could apply to anyone’s […]
