Posted October 13, 2015 by | 1 Comment | 220 views]

Singer/songwriter and proud Angelino Paul Bergmann is slowly but surely making a name for himself.
Recording for Fairfax Recordings (the local label on an equally-impressive upswing, with previous releases from the likes of Amason, Broncho, Gotye, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and based out of the former Sound City studios), Bergmann gently plucks his acoustic guitar, strums an occasional electric guitar, and croons …

What a treat to wake up to a brand new track from Mr Little Jeans!
Yesterday, I heard that the LA-based artist had to cancel her upcoming show at Club Bahia due to a foot injury that needed surgery, so a preview of her forthcoming EP is certainly much needed good news!

Soo…this has been an intense week with a lot of blood, tears, needles, scalpels …

It’s hard to describe authenticity. It’s one of those ‘you know it when it comes around’ things.
From his first release, Signs and Signifiers, Oklahoma native JD McPherson always seemed to have it. It’s as if he emerged from a late ’50s time capsule, but with an sonic quality that allows us to appreciate every nuance of his thoroughly seasoned band as well.
I’ve never seen …

Posted June 25, 2015 by | 1 Comment | 4,203 views]

It’s strange to hear a reggae remix of one of the most painful love songs of all time, but somehow The Frightnrs totally make it work — and makes me want to slow dance with my head on someone’s shoulder…on a Caribbean beach…at midnight…with a full moon shining down on us.
No matter what you’ve been through in your life as far as love and …

Song Premiere: Jet Trash – “Baby C’mon” from Burger Records imprint

Jet Trash

Jet Trash took their name from a line in a Tom Waits song though they have very little in common with him sonically. The San Francisco quartet have arrived with a gleefully relentless rush of a song that should kick off every single one of your summer road trip mixes.
With “Baby C’mon,” Jet Trash pays homage to their garage rock forebears (and contemporaries), but they imbue the track …
