Snail Mail at the Wiltern
Snail Mail and Sasami take on a packed Wiltern commanding as though it were backyard show

It was an indie rock takeover at the Wiltern this past Thursday night. The beautiful theatre we love, exceeded my crowd-size expectations when it packed in for the Snail Mail show.

Singer-songwriter mxmtoon finds beauty in the mundane on debut the masquerade

A mainline artery to her heart, mxmtoon exists to give voice to all the things that 19-year-old Maia keeps hidden behind the facade of her day-to-day life. Offered in a spoken-word inflection that dips and curves itself around her eclectic production—one part acoustic-pop a-la Kina Grannis, mixed with sharp lyricism and avant-garde, off-kilter melodics akin […]

Premiere: Lucy Arnell shares rock-rambler “Shadow’s Coming Over to Watch a DVD”

L.A.-based Lucy Arnell has shared the video for her song “Shadow’s Coming Over to Watch a DVD,” which will be part of a split cassette release with post-punk-pop provocateur Holiday Sidewinder. The film—co-directed and shot by Arnell’s good friend Tess Wachter—is an oddity specific to Arnell’s own vision. A grunge-rock rambler soundtracks the film, which […]

Clairo
Clairo emerges glowing and glimmering in the intimacy of her songs on debut Immunity

With the release of her debut album Immunity, 20-year-old Claire Cottrill—aka Clairo—has put to rest any notions of herself being a one-hit-wonder known for making trite bedroom-pop. Her debut unfolds with all the intimacy of a personal diary, handwritten in atmospheric ballads and giddy, electropop bangers that trace her grapplings with love and identity. From […]

Mitski brings to life all the isolation and triumph of Be the Cowboy at the Hollywood Palladium

Be the cowboy. It’s the quiet assertion that Mitski breathes into her album of the same name—an album on which she sought to reconcile years of isolation with that of her own elusive identity. It was conceived with a particular image in mind: of a singer alone in a room—a single light illuminating them—singing to […]

vōx Shares New Single “I Am Not A God,” Signs to Arts & Crafts

LA based singer-songwriter-producer vōx (pronounced “wokes,” the Latin word for “voice”) announced earlier this week that she has signed with Indie label Arts & Crafts. In addition to her announcement, she also released a new single, “I Am Not A God,” an aloof sounding, yet deeply emotional projection of the artist who created it. “I […]
