Guest Dj Project, Uncategorized »
First off, it must be said that Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson has the best laugh.
Even if you only listen to his Guest DJ Project set to hear his chuckle as he reveals his longheld desire to be abducted by aliens (!!), you won’t be disappointed.
His admission comes through his choice of Styx’s “Come Sail Away”.
I never realized the prog rock hit was about an …
Hailing from the UK, Jodie Abacus provides deep, heartfelt songs stemming from real life experience.
With a radio DJ as a father and a fascination with MTV, connecting to audiences has always been his biggest priority.
Listeners can feel the intimacy of Abacus sitting in a dark room with his keyboard writing these songs, as he did in his breakout single “I’ll Be That Friend”.
This upbeat, …
I had only heard glowing reviews of their performance at Coachella before Sylvan Esso arrived in our studio.
After seeing them myself at the Troubadour last year, I knew what we were in store for – Amelia Meath is an unrivaled frontwoman when it comes to delivering a performance you can’t keep your eyes off of, without ANY tricks whatsoever.
It’s just her. Her supreme confidence. …
Borrowing some titular inspiration from William S. Burroughs, like Robert Wyatt before him, Australian DJ/Producer Tim Sullivan called his music project This Soft Machine.
Making it’s debut on Eskimo Recordings in April, This Soft Machine has less in common with the Canterbury sound and more to do with the LCD and !!!. Sullivan’s first single has a pair of cool cuts and features instrumentation from Dave Harrington of DARKSIDE and Cut …
I met Barron about 4 years ago at El Coyote.
Like a cliche, I totally walked in super late and I looked around the empty restaurant and all I saw was this smiling kid in a booth.
I looked right at him, the only dude in the room and was unsure if I was looking at Barron because A) he was so remarkably young and B) …
Samaris – “Tibra”
My discovery of this band has a very cool story.
Sigtryggur Baldursson from the Icelandic Music Export office dropped by the basement last week with new music in tow.
He just so happens to be one of the founding members of the Sugarcubes, so his musical pedigree is well established. He handed me a CD from a band called Samaris and I was pretty …

For all the talk of Coachella being an over-hyped, overly saturated haven for bros, douchebags, and basic bitches, it’s still undoubtedly one of the best music festivals in the world and a great way to see an incredible line-up of artists (usually bringing their A-games) in a short amount of time.
Doing a radio show from 10 to midnight Monday through Friday has its perks, …
New Music is pretty much what we live for over here at Pan Caliente.
And when it mysteriously comes from a band that was rumored to have split up back in 2012 it’s even more exciting.
60 Tigres, a band that formed in the musical mecca of Monterrey, Mexico, about 9 years back, returns with a new album and tour dates to boot.
“Hay Más”, the lead …

Avers – “Vampire”
I have the great honor of getting to geek out on music directly with KCRW DJs.
In this case, Anne Litt sent this track my way.
She was hooked when she noticed they are from her hometown (Richmond,VA) and it was the Dandy Warhols-like psychedelic pop that grabbed me (though the nonchalant vocal delivery reminds me of Courtney Barnett).
The sextet – which features Tyler …
