2015-04-20 Alabama Shakes by DustinDowning-59 sm

Every time I’ve talked about the new Alabama Shakes album “Sound & Color”, I describe it as a headphone record. It sounds intricately crafted, yet chock full of raw emotion. They lost none of the passion and intensity of their beloved debut, instead they built it out further in the form of new sonic sculptures.
But the question becomes, how does a headphone record, with …

Chaz Bundick by Jeremiah Garcia

Toro y Moi first came on our radar during the reign of Chillwave, lumped in with the likes of Washed Out and Neon Indian by music critics who were quick to put him in a box without much thought.
Five years later, Chaz Bundick continues to surprise and impress, exploring a sea of genres. His sound is whatever he is interested in at the moment. …

(Find the full session here)
Aside from seeing them in a very intimate space, two things made KCRW’s Apogee Sessions show with TV on the Radio extra special:
They played a bunch of songs from their forthcoming record “Seeds” that none of us had heard before and frontman Tunde Adebimpe is now a certified Angeleno (residing in Silver Lake, close to bandmate Dave Sitek and his …

KCRW’s Apogee Sessions feat Jenny Lewis by Jeremiah Garcia

(Stream the full session here)
While Jenny Lewis’ new album “The Voyager” was born out of many tales of woe (gnarly bouts of insomnia, the death of her father, and the end of her band Rilo Kiley), she has never looked more comfortable or happier on stage than how she did at Apogee Studio for a live KCRW session taped last night.

KCRW’s Apogee Sessions featuring Conor Oberst hosted by Anne L

(Stream the full session here)
To say that last nights KCRW Apogee Session guest of honor Conor Oberst, was all bright-eyed and bushy tailed would not only be a terrible pun, it wouldn’t be far from the truth.
The indie singer songwriter is usually known by and large as having an introspective and somber style but he showed the small Santa Monica crowd a more playful …
