Ian Wayne
Premiere: Ian Wayne’s New Album is a Cynical Delight

The cynicism of Ian Wayne’s new album is evident from its title. A Place Where Nothing Matters is out today and deals with hopelessness and disinterest via unique songwriting that feels more like poetry than lyrics. This LP follows his lofi At Home EP from last summer, which itself was a reinvention of his career; he […]

Premiere: Expect a New EP This Friday from Livingmore, the Band as Tight as the Mafia

Local retro rock outfit Livingmore is regimented in the all right ways. As the band and I loudly chat over coffee on a hot day in Hollywood, drummer Mike Schadel breaks it down: “Everyone has a role,” and with structure, they are able to avoid disagreements and negative energy. Frontwoman Alex Moore jokes, “We’re like […]

Premiere: Black Flamingo Embrace Their Contradictions

Black Flamingo is filled with contradictions. Their name is the obvious first example, and their sound reflects a dichotomy of tropical light and gothic darkness, too. Add to the pile the title and feel of their new EP, Living Ghost, which will entertain as much as it haunts you. Kimi Recor (founder of Play Like […]

EP Premiere: The Crowleys Keep Things Pastel on Colours Change Their Tone EP

The Crowleys first caught my attention with the release of “LA Sunset,” a psychedelic track that felt genuinely SoCal. Much to my surprise, the band is actually based in Hamilton, Ontario, a city known for weather and landscape quite different from our own. That clearly doesn’t matter though, given how sunny and expansive their new […]

Album Premiere: Dallas Acid’s Spa Hunter LP is an ASMR Wonder

I apologize in advance to anyone who is just learning about autonomous sensory meridian response from this piece. Once you start looking up examples of it on YouTube, you’ll never escape the black hole. The sensation is inexplicably pleasurable, described on Wikipedia as being “low-grade euphoria,” brought on by soft stimuli, such as whispers or […]

May Roosevelt
Album Premiere: May Roosevelt Speaks in Synths on New LP, Junea

They say that music is a universal language, and that could not be more true for today’s album premiere. Hailing from Thessaloniki, Greece, the artist and composer May Roosevelt began as a violinist when she was 12 years old, but eventually picked up the theremin, which she has since mastered. While it is one of […]

EP Premiere: Four New Songs from Raener Make a Cohesive Debut

The new EP from local four-piece Raener is a big deal. It came together a few months ago at a serene beach house in Santa Barbara. This was after, according to my calculation, the band–consisting of Daniel Fox, Will van Boldrik, Zach Bilson, and Daniel Vanchieri–had played every single intimate venue in the city, and […]

EP Premiere: LA-based alt-pop duo Grace Blue share debut EP —  Playing The Mint Aug. 2

Taking their resonating alt-pop tunes to a remote village of Dzembronya, Ukraine, duo Grace Blue bring to life their own personal restlessness in the new music video for “Our Eyes.” Now based in Los Angeles, both Grace Mogz and Joseph Arazi met in their hometown of Tel Aviv and share a penchant for upbeat, synth-peddling […]
