There has been a Queen resurgence that I have really been enjoying.
I recently read an incredible article in Rolling Stone, surviving members of the band are touring for the first time in 30 years, and here in LA the Center Theatre Group is presenting a musical based on their music (I hear the female lead has an extraordinary voice).
I grew up hearing “We Will …

Deers – “Bamboo”
The first time I heard Jason give this track a spin on MBE, the back and forth of the two female vocalists instantly caught my ear.
It’s lo-fi surf rock that is bursting with attitude from this duo out of Madrid (Ana Garcia Perrote and Carlotta Cosials).
They released this track under the title DEMO on their Bandcamp page and described the circumstances behind …

dom la nena

Brazilian-born, Paris-based musician Dom La Nena made her U.S. radio debut on KCRW and we were all big fans of her album “Ela”.
When asked to remix a song, KCRW DJ Jeremy Sole said he would only do it if he could use “Batuque”. It’s totally unlike any of her other songs, favoring a Brazilian groove with ritualistic drums and chanting over her normal singer-songwriter …

Sam Beam and  Glen Hansard by Jeremiah Garcia

Last April, KCRW hosted a very special evening of music with Glen Hansard (Swell Season) and Sam Beam (Iron & Wine). They took turns playing their stunning original material before uniting for two covers they worked on during soundcheck.
We’ve never released any of the audio from that night and it never aired on the station.

Last week, KCRW’s award-winning storytelling show Unfictional aired an incredible story produced by BBC Radio 4on Jeff Buckley.
The musician, who drowned at the age of 30, has always been the subject of fascination, as many talented artists who die way too young are.
He was supremely talented and the radio piece tells the story of the night that started his legend.

Mark Duplass solo sm

Mark Duplass has done a LOT.
Any mention of his name and I guarantee there will be a chorus of different projects he’s been involved in — The League! The Mindy Project! Tammy! – to his mumblecore roots and indie films like “Safety Not Guaranteed” and “The One I Love”, which was a Sundance favorite this year and opens in theaters soon.
BUT a lot of …

The two artists from Nashville who took the stage at the last Country in the City concert showed just how diverse the genre can be.
Nikki Lane is a fiery, confident singer who isn’t afraid to tell her mate all the ways he needs to “Man Up”.
She’s got the catchy choruses of a pop singer AND the honest expression you expect from a country artist, …
