Before Diego Garcia released his lovelorn album “Laura” and made all the girls swoon, he was the frontman of NYC indie rock band Elefant (remember “Misfit”?)
He returns to his rock roots with this new version of “All Eyes on You”, the closing track on his album. He gives it the My Bloody Valentine treatment with fuzzy guitars and I actually prefer this version. (hear the old one here)
Stream “All Eyes on You” (Rock Version)[audio:http://blogs.kcrw.com/musicnews/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Diego-Garcia-All-Eyes-On-You-Rock-Version.mp3|titles=Diego Garcia – All Eyes On You (Rock Version)]
Diego is playing in LA TONIGHT, May 31. It’s the inaugural concert at the First Unitarian Church, a new performance space here in LA. The show will feature Ryat (from Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label), along with viola virtuoso Miguel Atwood Ferguson and KCRW Dj Anthony Valadez on the decks. Tickets are available here.
Also, revisit his performance on Morning Becomes Eclectic here.
