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

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

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 […]
