Heathers are a local trio currently producing some of the most crackling, exciting guitar pop around. The band has been on my radar for a few years now, but I’ve become increasingly adamant about getting the word out on them since they more than held their own playing to a sold out crowd of anxious Viet Cong fans at the Echoplex a few months …

Corsica Arts Club: Local Band We Love

corsica

Corsica Arts Club came on my radar last summer and, with word that they will be releasing their self-titled debut EP on June 9, I thought it was time to share.
The sunny synth pop track “Untamed” is my favorite so far.
It’s a dancefloor-ready track that would fit in perfect on any 80’s mix nestled up against songs by New Order and Erasure.
Brendan Thompson and …

A friend introduced me to this local duo about a month ago, almost as an after thought.
“Oh,” he said as we were in the middle of discussing a completely different topic, “I need to send you my friends’ song, it might be good for your radio show.”
I’m always excited to hear those words, especially from someone whose taste I trust as much as that …

Mild High Club: Local Artist We Love

mild high

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 …

From the very first seconds of this song I was sunk!
Buzzbands.la tweeted about it and the name – “10,000 Emerald Pools” – immediately caught my attention.
It sounded like something I wanted to experience as soon as humanly possible.
Even better – the song lived up to that incredibly descriptive name!
It’s from BØRNS (aka Garrett Borns),an artist originally from coastal Michigan who has taken up residence …

cherry by jordan Millington

LA band Cherry Glazerr have had a big year. The band had a well-received debut released by the current kings of DIY power pop and garage rock Burger Records and haven’t stopped since.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that two of the members aren’t even old enough to vote yet.
As KCRW fans may guess, their name was inspired by our own news host Chery Glaser and …

odessa

A few months ago, a friend I trust in the music biz recommended I give Odessa’s “I Will be There” a listen. I liked it, but it wasn’t until I revisited it recently that I realized how special it is.
It’s a really sweet love song. I really like her voice and the lyrics are a meditation on love, dedication and loyalty.
Now, I can’t get …

White Fence: Local Band We Love

White_Fence

If White Fence’s Tim Presley sleeps, it must be upon a bed of white polar bear fur floating on a cloud of pink smoke high above an animated George Dunning landscape.
But I doubt he does, as in the last 4 years, his White Fence project has released 6 studio albums, 2 live albums and a collaborative album with garage rock genius Ty Segall.
In approximately half …
