The quartet – who have previously collaborated with N*E*R*D, produced for Mac Miller and toured with Wiz Khalifa – have offered up a few well-received dreamy, electro-pop singles in preparation for their full length debut release on October 22 and we’re happy to premiere their latest.
There are echoes of …

“Hold Onto Now” was one of the highlights of that session and is one of the best tracks on “Fumes”.

It has been three years since Henry Wolfe’s last album, “Linda Vista“, and if I had to wait yet another month to hear new music by LA’s favorite recluse, I might have actually become proactive and called the man about it.
But, lucky for both, I didn’t have to resort to scare tactics — a new four-track EP (out 11/11) ceremoniously graced my inbox just …

LA-based electronic-R&B outfit Dead Times seems right in line with where a lot of music is headed right now. Beats are big, but there are lots of different ways to serve them up.
Their recent single “Every Moment” is a sexy slow burner, but their brand new track “Better Off” is a joyful, “feel-good foot-stomper” that is more along the lines of a band like …

UK artist Fink (aka Fin Greenall) is a longtime KCRW favorite. His new album was a bit of a departure from his previous work in that it was more of a collaboration with his band members and DJ Anne Litt describes it as “breathtaking.”
The band visited our studio on the day before the release of “Hard Believer” and played stripped down versions of select …

Mariachi El Bronx are back!
After returning to their punk rock roots as The Bronx last year, they’ll release a new album as their alter-ego on November 4.
The band recorded most of the album – “III” – over two weeks at a private countryside studio surrounded by woods (with no cell phone reception. The horror!)
We’re thrilled to premiere a track, which is available streaming and …

They were all smiles backstage last night after they debuted half of their new album — and some fan favorites –for a worldwide audience in a webcast presented by KCRW and NPR Music.
They ruled the Main Stage at LA’s FYF Fest …

ty_promo_5_by_denee_petracek

In the short six or so years Ty Segall has been releasing music under his own name (not to mention the couple of years previous in the band Epsilons), he has been prolific enough to establish himself as a brand name.
And not merely a brand denoting a specific type of music, as his records all flirt around subtle but distinct garage rock varieties, from …
