An Interview with Matty Taylor of Tennis System: we talk Echo residency, making LA home, Kanye West & more

The Los Angeles trio previously impressed and were praised by Grimy Goods staff […]

Interpol
All the rage (seriously, fights broke out) with Interpol at the Shrine

I have been an on-and-off fan of Interpol ever since “Turn on The Bright Lights”. To no fault of their own, Interpol play the style of music that I love. They remind me so much of Joy Division but obviously with their own unique sound, however, I am traditionalist and I have a hard time listening […]

Unfortunately, there was a small crowd in attendance which is such a shame because it was a really stellar night of good music featuring Castro out of Los Angeles and Potty Mouth from Massachusetts. If […]

Watch Corners’ twisted new video for “The Spaceship”

Just a few week’s ago, Echo Park-based Corners released their stunning nine-track full-length record, Maxed Out on Distractions. Rich in haunting synths with the dark sounds of the 80s post-punk era, these good ole East Side boys have done well for themselves with this new record. Released on October 7 via vinyl and CD via Lolipop […]
