5. Hello Seahorse! – Untitled EP (Mid-Year)
Ok, so this is not quite a full-length album. But considering some of our top picks for the year in 2014 were standout EPs, we are not limiting this post to just albums.
After 3 solid albums in the last 5 years Hello Seahorse! is trying something different. They will be releasing a 4 song/ 4 video EP mid …

Drunken Prayer – “Satin Sheets” Video Premiere

drunken prayers

I traveled to Portland, Oregon a couple of time over the holiday season, which is always a fun trip.
The city seems to me to comfortably combine the best elements of the Midwest (friendliness, lack of pretension) and the Pacific coast (sophistication, supportive of the arts).
So it is no surprise that many independent-minded artists, such as Stephen Malkmus, Elliott Smith, James Mercer of the Shins, …

Sundance: Jamestown Revival Live

2015 Sundance Film Festival Day 4. KCRW

Jamestown Revival’s debut full length is called “Utah” so they were a fitting choice for KCRW’s stage at Sundance. And they led packed crowd in a boot stomping good time.
The band — led by Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance — has had an incredible run in the last year that shows no signs of stopping, especially since they are now on the bill for Coachella!
They …

Shelf Life: Liam Hayes, BC Camplight, Andy Shauf

Liam Hayes – “Slurrup” (Fat Possum)
Chicagoan Hayes has been hanging around the periphery of rock stardom for over 20 years, with critically-acclaimed, but under-heard recordings under his own name, as well as Plush (he can even be spotted in the film “High Fidelity“).
But his latest album may be his most focused, with short, sharp, 60s-inspired tunes that could very well break though.

Cosmic Shock: The passing of Edgar Froese & Demis Roussos

Posted January 27, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 508 views]
Froese

Although both legendary artists deserve their individual respective eulogies via post, there is a timely and sadly poetic charge their passing, so I felt it compelled to remember their respective legacies in tandem.
I mean no disrespect by it, it’s just so sad and weird to lose both Tangerine Dream‘s Edgar Froese and Greek superstar Demis Roussos (also of Aphrodite’s Child) within days of each other.
In revisiting …

PPL MVR by Mark Leibowitz

You may see a lot of strange things over the course of a few days in Park City during Sundance, but three giant yetis walking down the street are sure to make an impression.
Who are these mysterious creatures playing rock music? PPL MVR, that’s who.
Pronounced “people mover”, the trio is based out of Los Angeles and signed to a major label with their debut …

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck Premieres at Sundance

I was a teenager in the 90’s so it’s safe to say I was part of the generation most impacted by Nirvana’s music. I never idolized Kurt Cobain, but I knew a lot of people who did.
His life has been picked apart in books, movies and more over the years, but I can’t imagine any of them got as close to him as Director …

Marcus Marr: Artist You Should Know

Posted January 23, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 713 views]
brownsauce

In 2013, London producer Marcus Marr released a phenomenal jammer called, “The Music”.
That single was a juggernaut and made Spin Magazine’s year end list of “The 40 Best Dance Tracks of 2013”, sitting comfortably at #3 just behind Daft Punk and Todd Terje.
No small feat, especially for a debut single from a new artist.
Now, in advance of a full length debut album later this year on DFA, Marr has released a rad new …

Dave from Glass Animals

Glass Animals were just confirmed to play Coachella and it’s crazy to think just a year ago they were on KCRW’s SXSW showcase! To celebrate, we reached out to frontman Dave Bayley for our Fandom series.
“I was 15 when I first really lost my shit at a concert and danced like Prince on his first disco biscuit.
Joe (our drummer) and I had gone …
