Premiere: Reykjavik’s Pale Moon Endure a Sunny “Exile”

The title of Pale Moon’s debut single alludes to their nomadic origins. While the Icelandic duo has not been formally removed from any place, they have traveled quite a lot; Natasha Sushchenko is originally from Russia while Árni Gudjonsson was born and raised on the verdant arctic island. They met in Spain and decided that […]

Premiere: Jonny Kosmo’s New Single “Jessica Triangle” Promotes Community—See Him at Highland Park Ebell on Feb 27

Songwriting depends on hyperbole. The most common topic, love, is only spoken of at the extreme. We have the classic Dolly Parton line, “I will always love you,” which is the polar opposite of Cher’s sentiment: “Do you believe in life after love?” The feeling will either stay forever or kill you, according to these […]

At any given point in this newcomer’s past, she could have been a music teacher, professional snowboarder, vocalist in a band, or private poet. Today, Elodie Tomlinson fronts The Dumes which has just released a debut single, though her presence and story are enough to make her one to watch. That single, “More Than Physical,” […]

Formerly of the rough-and-tumble indie act Teeth & Tongue, Jade McInally has set out on a more leisurely path. She now fronts her own band called Jade Imagine, which turns down new wave influences in favor of surf and garage ones. Their latest EP, What The Fuck Was I Thinking, sounds incredulous, but is actually […]

Trabants
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. That album, which emulates spaghetti westerns of the 1960’s, is finally finished after a painstaking process, and will […]

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 […]

Wild Nothing at the Regent
Wild Nothing’s Return to the Stage at the Regent was a Riotous Celebration

Even for a Friday night, on October 27th the Regent buzzed with heavy anticipation. The venue filled quickly as the show started, which bottlenecked the entrance and caused a line that stretched well past the cafe next door. Fans of Wild Nothing and Men I Trust sold out the show about a month ahead of […]
