Song Premiere: thanks. Fights For “Annabelle”

It’s that time of year again, folks! LA is literally burning, humidity is at an all time high, and it’s September, which can only mean we are experiencing a second summer. I think then, it is fair to crown an ‘album of the second summer,’ and I’d like to nominate the upcoming LP from thanks., […]

Imaad Wasif Added to Desert Daze Lineup on Heels of Career Best LP

Imaad Wasif has an impressive resumé. Wasif has been part of collaborations for most of his career, so the pivot to making his own material felt like a promising turn. He put out three diverse, vaguely spiritual rock-leaning records in the late 2000s, and wrote three more that never made it to release. One Wasif […]

So says Street Joy about their new single, “Do A Thing,” which you can and should listen to below. Street Joy is a local duo comprised of Jason DeMayo and Scott Zimmerman. They make what some could call rock ‘n’ roll, though to give their newest track any label, especially one so uninspired, feels wrong. […]

Intimate Performances from Tim Darcy and Hand Habits Mesmerize Audiences at Resident

Nothing says intimacy quite like watching your favorites perform solo sets in a sparsely filled room with near-complete silence, save for the music of course. This was the case at the criminally under-attended show at Resident this past Tuesday night, showcasing newly local songwriter Meg Duffy as Hand Habits and Tim Darcy, performing some new […]

Not looking back: the U.K.’s Wire still going strong forty-years into their evolving sound

Words: Steven Ward  Even if you’ve never delved very deep into the historical roots of the budding punk scene that developed in the UK during the 1970s, chances are if you’ve been a fan of rock music in the last four decades, you’ve had a taste of Wire. Attributed to expanding the sonic limits of […]

Warbly Jets
From couch surfing to rock ‘n’ roll, Warbly Jets open up ahead of January Satellite residency

In the land where jangly guitars and 60’s psychedelia have latched firmly onto the sound of what seems nearly every band is producing, Los Angeles newest addition Warbly Jets espouse unfiltered, against the grain rock that gleefully trades the nostalgia of yesterday for a face-melting tomorrow. Unsigned, with only one sizzling single to show, and […]

However, Vancouver grunge-rock duo The Pack A.D.’s ferocious new album Positive Thinking (U.S. release Nov. 11 via Cadence Music) just might be the cure for what ails you or at least a good starting point […]

Hot Band Alert: Ex-Sage — There’s Nothing Dry or Empty About this Duo’s Gritty Desert Rock

Los Angeles rock duo Ex-Sage recently ventured onto our radar when we featured them as one of our 5 Must-See Rock Acts at Echo Park Rising 2016. We just couldn’t shake their dark, sludgy desert-rock sound that had us high and reminiscing on other rock favorites such as The Kills and The Raveonettes. The band is scheduled […]
