There’s something rugged and cool about Matt Dillon, like your friend’s hot older brother. He knows all the cool bands, smokes cigarettes behind the bleachers, then you giggle when he says, “hello” in his sultry voice.

Well, that is exactly what his recent picks on this Guest DJ Project reflects.
Today is your lucky day because he is taking you out.
First, he picks you up in his 59′ El Camino with Bing …

Like lots of folks in LA, jazz musician Alex Brettin is from “somewhere else.” (Chicago, actually.)
But, one listen to Brettin’s Mild High Club and at first you’ll think he’s just from “way out there” and then you’ll conclude he is undoubtedly puro Los Angeles.
His hazy, sunshine superman sound can only come from having drunk of the waters of the LA River…if not at the very least from having scooped some into his …

I’ve always loved “Wild Heart” but after I saw this video of Stevie Nicks singing an early version of it backstage while getting her make-up done, my love for the song just grew my leaps and bounds. It’s so pure.
It sincerely gives me chills every time I watch it.

Interestingly enough, it was this video that prompted KCRW DJ Valida to cover the track.

Atmosphere Photo 4

Generally speaking, the state of the music industry is in critical condition.
The industry’s award winning “Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist” is a blonde Australian girl. Even with people curiously buying vinyl again, album sales are at an all time low.
After 25 years of grinding, Minneapolis’ underground hip-hop kings, Atmosphere have proven against all odds, that survival (and relevance) in (or outside) the game is absolutely possible, if not …

Misun – Superstitions
It’s no secret that Misun is one of my favorite bands.
The LA-via-DC group first caught my attention through their consistently great stream of free releases on Soundcloud, each one wildly different from the last, but always super catchy.
This week they released their first full length, “Superstitions“.
It finds Misun gliding between rock, pop, and electronic sounds. Powerhouse lead singer (and group namesake) Misun …
