Song Premiere: Stargazing with October’s Child

The enormity of the universe can seem overwhelming if you think about it for too long. Perhaps that is why we think of loved ones when we stargaze. If there exists a place as incomprehensible as heaven, it would have to be among the galaxies all out of reach to us here on Earth. I […]

TEST
Song Premiere: TEST Debut “Bleached Hands” Ahead of Hi Hat Performance

TEST prides itself on being a band, and not a ‘project.’ The trio makes unapologetic rock music, so it makes sense that they’d also keep a strict definition of exactly who they are. It all began in a warehouse in Vernon, living off of cheap noodles and the promise of creative catharsis. After a couple […]

Hot Band Alert: Entering the World of Oddnesse

It’s hard to imagine the world without constant turmoil, isn’t it? Last week was a doozy given all the natural disasters, from hurricanes to wildfires to an earthquake that should give every Angeleno some cause for concern. Art is a healthy distraction. Songs can transport you to another world, or rather connect you through a […]

HDLSS Dumb It Down With Nuanced Complexity

We currently live in a culture of rabid misinformation. Talking heads try to convince us that our feelings are equivalent to facts. Truth is virtually meaningless. It will take decades to confront and undo these issues, and in all likelihood they will never actually be eradicated. And yet we still must fight, through whatever action […]

BOSCO Gets Personal on Her Latest project, b.

Video Premiere: Dutch Party’s Multi-layered Homage to Philip K. Dick

In 1968, Philip K. Dick published a novel set in post-apocalyptic San Francisco, where Ken Franklin calls his original home. He now lives in Echo Park, where he began indie pop group Dutch Party. It has been two years since their debut EP and over this time they have clearly developed a sense of whimsy; […]
