Posted February 28, 2011 by | 0 Comments | 3,802 views]

From KCRW DJ Mario Cotto:
In their brief tenure as recording artists (less than 2 years,) DC’s Benoit & Sergio have already released a formidable series of 12”s and EPs on notable labels thesongsays, Spectral/Ghostly, Visionquest, and most recently, DFA.
Although technically they’d be labeled a minimalist techno-house outfit, Benoit & Sergio are actually doing something very exciting and altogether different.

Gold Panda — Marriage Remix EP + Tour Dates

Posted February 28, 2011 by | 2 Comments | 3,531 views]

Gold Panda had so much blog hype last year that I actually avoided listening to it for a while.  Sometimes the overwhelming words of praise scare me away and I prefer to wait and listen, even if I’m a little late to the party.
Well, guess what – the  UK producer and his debut full-length “Lucky Shiner” were totally deserving of all the attention.
DJ Mario …

I feel like Nicolas’ music not only …

Three seemingly different artists came together on Saturday night to talk about what it means to have a career in music in 2011. But they have more in common than most people think –so much so that Raphael Saadiq, Moby and Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio/Maximum Balloon) were exchanging contact info after the event!

Adele Live on KCRW

Posted February 25, 2011 by | 5 Comments | 5,315 views]

Not only was everyone buzzing all week about Adele stopping by KCRW for Morning Becomes Eclectic but, since she played this morning, I’ve gotten tons of  emails, texts, etc… about how great she sounded.

From KCRW DJ Anne Litt:
It’s “Oscar week” here in Hollywood.  The town is buzzing, all the streets are blocked off (I live near the Kodak Theater), and the KCRW Oscar pool is in full effect.  I confess that every year, I go to Oscar parties not so much for the actual awards, but to see friends and have dinner!
This year, I am looking forward …

Composer Randy Newman – We Belong Together

Posted February 24, 2011 by | 2 Comments | 4,161 views]

Randy Newman is a pretty recognizable figure. So much so, that we have a photo of him in our hallway — with his back to the camera, facing a piano – and EVERYONE who walks through here knows who it is.

The other day I had one of those magical KCRW moments where I happened upon Randy looking at his own photo (see above). The …
