On their stellar debut “Cinema” The Marías dazzle and enthrall with the warmth of their romance for life

On Cinema, the stellar debut album of Los Angeles-based vintage crooners The Marías, it is the distinctive ebb and flow of emotion between the band’s central duo/couple (María Zardoya and Josh Conway) that makes their mix of Latin pop, psychedelic-soul, and jazz leanings that much more enthralling. It’s what powers the dynamo of delicious sensuality, […]

Premiere: Trabants Bring Back the Spaghetti Western With New LP, Nel Cuore Di Una Terra Selvaggia

The last we saw of Trabants, they were playing a set at Echo Park Rising back in August. It turns out that well before then, the band’s leader, Eric Penna, had begun working on a new album.
