I’ve lived in Los Angeles for 15 years and one of my most vivid – and favorite – musical memories is Belle and Sebastian’s sold out 2006 show at the Hollywood Bowl. It stands out so much, that I can never talk about the band without mentioning it.
Why, you might ask?
It was some of the most unadulterated musical joy I’ve ever experienced — along …

Johann Johannsson by Bil Zelman

I was thrilled when Icelandic pianist Jóhann Jóhannsson picked up the Golden Globe for Best Original Score for “The Theory of Everything” last night.
It was a similar feeling to when Swell Season took home an Oscar years back – the indie underdogs triumphing on Hollywood’s biggest stage against the odds.
Hans Zimmer and Alexandre Desplat do consistently fantastic work and Trent Reznor has made an …

In honor of David Bowie’s birthday this week, I wanted to share this rendition of “Where Are We Now”, the first single from his most recent album “The Next Day”.
The lush ballad is beautifully simple and spare in the hands of Conor O’Brien, known as Villagers. The Irish singer performed it during his 2013 appearance on KCRW and it’s always stuck with me.
He’s been …

Laura Marling’s debut appearance on MBE in 2010 was a session I will never forget. We were all struck by this young (20 years old), blond-haired girl seated solo in the middle of the room armed with nothing but a guitar and her voice.
She was so powerful that all of us were silent and in awe.
That album catapulted her into the public eye as …

We hosted longtime favorites like Beck, Pixies, David Gray and Roseanne Cash and the live radio debuts of …
