The Shins at the Greek Theatre by Steven Ward
The Shins infect Greek Theatre with their heartworms at Los Angeles show

A now forgotten list about ten delightful riffs in indie-rock once claimed that The Shins were not a very guitar-driven band. It was a benign comment that given the context and Wincing The Night Away-era in which it was written, wasn’t necessarily off the mark. But it has and always will fester rather neurotically in the […]

Santa Ana gets the gritty rock festival it deserves with inaugural When We Were Young festival

As the bedrock venue for a large portion of the burgeoning punk rock and rap scene of Orange County’s counter-culture, the Observatory in Santa Ana tapped into its first niche audience with the 90’s/early 00’s R&B, soul, and hip-hop tailored Soulquarius late last year. Mosh heads and hardcore lovers wouldn’t have to wait long to earn […]

Foxygen dazzles Fonda Theatre with supporting acts Kingdom of Not and Gabriella Cohen

Saturday night Foxygen headlined a show at the Fonda Theatre for a dystopian future. Opening the show was Kingdom of Not a theatrical duo complete with masks and props and songs that seemed to have been stolen from a demented ten year old’s dreamscapes. Following, was Gabriella Cohen, whose tone felt like music from a […]

Foxygen’s Collage Performance at Fonda Theatre is a Beautiful Mess

The style at a Foxygen show is, unsurprisingly, of the era of Foxygen’s music. Foxygen’s era is a bit spread out though, a collage of classic rock iconography plagiarized, improvised and refreshed. Theirs is a sweet spot somewhere between the 50s everybody-gone-surfin’ idealism, the flower-crown 60s love child, 70s glam, and the color schema of […]

Album Review — Diane Coffee — My Friend Fish

Who’s Diane Coffee? When I first got my ears on this debut album, I was vacationing in Mexico and pretty much relaxing on the beach or in a hot spring just about everyday. And like most vacations, there’s always a song or two that becomes the anthem of your vacation. Whenever you hear that certain […]

Jonathan Rado — Law and Order — Album Review

Pinning down Los Angeles-based (and occasionally Brooklyn) band Foxygen is a chore. Are they backward-facing 60s revivalists? Are they loose rockers fusing both the spirit of pre-punk and freedom rock? Are they dreamy pop stars with great hair and great press? Are they a Velvets-ey slacker duo who use faux-apathy to show their disdain for […]

Win Tickets to Foxygen at The Echo – March 29, 2013

Sam France and Jonathan Rado are the bi-coastal songwriting duo that is Foxygen. They are next big thing, creating impressionistic, hyper-real portraits of sounds from specific times and places. Their music is modern and creative and highly original. Many of their albums are self released, and only a few are available. Later, they signed on […]
