Hot Band Alert: From Los Angeles, listen to Rosechild’s debut EP Remedies

Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Rosechild has released their debut EP, titled Remedies. There’s a certain enjoyable ’90s alt-rock sound to this four-piece band.

Bob Mould At The Roxy: Teaching The Kids How It’s Done

Bob Mould The Sunset Strip has long been a strange relic to me. Enormously influential in its heyday, religiously mythologized in its present, yet seemingly unrelated to any scene in the last 20 years.
