Recommended New Album: Cymbals — The Age of Fracture

No doubt about it, this album will make you move and groove with its sonic electronic dance beats accented with the European sophistication of the end-of-the-century French house. Similar to the sounds of New Order, classic Factory Records, and Hot Chip — watch out, Cymbals just might become your new favorite band from the UK. Since […]

Recommended New Album: Cherry Glazerr — Haxel Princess

While most kids in high school are listening to whatever catchy tunes the Clear Channel stations (KISSFM, KROQ, etc.) are pumping out on the airwaves — there’s always that unique bunch of teens that go against the grain in regards to music listening habits and discovery. Yesterday, L.A.’s Cherry Glazerr released their debut album, Haxel Princess (Burger […]

Album Review — Diane Coffee — My Friend Fish

Who’s Diane Coffee? When I first got my ears on this debut album, I was vacationing in Mexico and pretty much relaxing on the beach or in a hot spring just about everyday. And like most vacations, there’s always a song or two that becomes the anthem of your vacation. Whenever you hear that certain […]

Jonathan Rado — Law and Order — Album Review

Pinning down Los Angeles-based (and occasionally Brooklyn) band Foxygen is a chore. Are they backward-facing 60s revivalists? Are they loose rockers fusing both the spirit of pre-punk and freedom rock? Are they dreamy pop stars with great hair and great press? Are they a Velvets-ey slacker duo who use faux-apathy to show their disdain for […]

Recommended Album Review: Crystal Antlers, “Nothing Is Real”

Long Beach’s Crystal Antlers justreleased their latest album Nothing Is Real via Innovative Leisure this past October 15. The band is on an extensive U.S. tour now in support of the new album and we recently caught them opening up for Gogol Bordello at the Fonda Theatre. Crystal Antler’s riveting, loud-as-fuck, fast and furious set is a pretty clear […]

What began as a drumming career for Sandy Vu from Dum Dum Girls actually turned out to be quite the opposite. Upon the breakup of her former band, Midnight Movies, Sandy began the Los Angeles based synth-pop band, SISU meaning “the strength of will” in Finnish. Although she was unable to launch her creation immediately […]

Recommended Album Review: Keep Shelly in Athens, “At Home”

Keep Shelly in Athens have been rocking our world since we discovered the downbeat electronic-pop duo from Athens, Greece back in 2011. The duo consisting of sultry vocalist Sarah P. and the mysterious cloaked electronic mastermind, RPR — impressed us greatly with their previous EP Our Own Dream (Forest Family Records). We dug them so […]
