Xoller and Suede James Team Up for Unsettling New Single “Dreamgirl”

We are all made up of diverse facets. Los Angeles’ own Xoller compartmentalizes her best qualities, as likely many of us do to be able to hone a talent or safely examine the psyche. Her latest single, produced by herself and Suede James (aka Taylor Lawhon of Mating Ritual), addresses one of the personas that […]

Hot Artis Alert: Junior Mesa shares two new, woozily catchy songs created in quarantine

Even death is illusory—the physical form may be gone but memories will always live on. Local riot grrls, L.A. Witch, take it all in stride. Their forthcoming album Play With Fire […]

Blending his love of jazz compositions with an […]
