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.

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.

Hot Band Alert: Automatic share anxious rock single “Too Much Money” from new album Signal

A few decades ago L.A. trio Automatic—with their eclectic and unpolished rock leanings—might’ve found themselves at home opening for the likes of Blondie.

Things get delightfully physical with Thunderpussy and Black Pistol Fire at the El Rey

Whoever thought to put Thunderpussy and Black Pistol Fire on the same bill is a genius. This past Wednesday night at the El Rey Theatre was a sweatastic event. Thunderpussy started their set very quiet and mellow with guitarist Whitney Petty bowing her strings in a spot light. One-by-one the band took the stage until […]

Little Simz excites a sold-out crowd with her feisty, firey flows at The Echo

The tiny, disco-ball-flickered stage was packed with instruments, cables weaving intricate webs between piles of amps and stands and rigs. I didn’t envy the untangling the sound guys would have to do later. April + VISTA took their places behind their respective instruments. April George’s ethereal crooning bloomed, filling the space. She delivered a beautifully […]
