Chromatics Reveal New Single from Their Long-Awaited Album Dear Tommy

Chromatics fans got another promising taste of the band’s forthcoming album, Dear Tommy, with the release of “Blue Girl.” This is particularly exciting because the record had originally been announced in 2014, but Johnny Jewel infamously destroyed what they had been working on and re-did it front to back.

STRFKR
STRFKR slip into blissful nothingness with sizzling performance at El Rey

After what has been a rollicking week for the city of LA, rocked by a tragic presidential election and massive protests in response, STRFKR brought a much needed distraction to the El Rey last Friday night with their sizzling synth dance-anthems.

M83 immerses Greek Theatre into an effervescent pool of their colossal soundscapes, Yeasayer kick things off
