Waters: Local Band We Love

WATERS are currently based in the Bay Area but since they are planning a move to LA this summer, I’m preemptively deeming them a local band!
I was sent their single “Got to My Head” and it’s a pop rush of a song.
Remember pixy stix? Imagining downing a few of those and then going for a run through a beautiful pasture. It has that exhilarating, …

Christine McVie is back with the band which means there is still a chance I can hear her sing “Little Lies” LIVE in my lifetime!
Truth be told, that song was my first exposure to the band. I was 10 and begged my parents to buy me “Tango in the Night”. They were like, “You like Fleetwood Mac???”
I sure do. And I’m not alone.
When you …

by Larry Hirshowitz

Beck’s new album has been a KCRW favorite all year and we had a special opportunity to hear the tracks live in a private taping for Morning Becomes Eclectic.
Since his Coachella set was geared more towards a dance party, the band had only played these gorgeously melancholic new tracks live a few times before.
When I first started working at the station, I learned about …

Photos: Chromeo Live on KCRW

by Jon Gordon McKenzie

Chromeo is the ultimate party band.
The Canadian duo — Dave 1 and P-Thugg — have been playing their brand of 80′s influenced electro-funk for more than 10 years (before the genre was in style, they’re quick to say, back when punk dance bands like Rapture and Bloc Party ruled) and they’ve never done it better.

“Behind the simplest things lie the deepest feelings.”
This is the motto behind French electronic duo Principles of Geometry’s latest aural salvo, “Meanstream“.
Following a trilogy of haunting full length releases that ended with 2012′s excellent, “Burn the Land and Boil the Oceans”, the mysterious duo ducked into the darkness of the studio for almost 2 years dreaming up their next gloriously trippy album for Joakim’s Tigersushi label.
A longtime …

Boogarins

Boogarins – “Erre”
Brazil’s Boogarins have created an excellent psychedelic pop record in “As Plantas Que Curam” (translated as Plants That Heal).  It came out last Fall on LA’s Burger Records but after rave reviews for their live show from SXSW, they got a second push. Band members Fernando Almeida and Benke Ferraz are still in their late teens and met while in school in …
