EJL in the Music Library

Since KCRW Music Librarian Eric J Lawrence is filling in for Jason Bentley on Morning Becomes Eclectic this morning, he gets to debut one of the most important lists he puts together each year — KCRW’s Most Played Records.

Two LA bands made the top 10 — Flying Lotus and Broken Bells – and my beloved Local Natives cracked the top 20!

Tune in during the 11am hour for his countdown and view the list below.   EJL’s show will also be up in the archives later, if you missed it live.
