From KCRW DJ Travis Holcombe:
They don’t call Big Freedia the Queen of Bounce for nothing.
Her LA debut back in 2010 is the stuff of legend, and ever since that performance I’ve been on a mad tear to track down anything I could find by Freedia.
She is far and away the biggest name in New Orleans Bounce music today, so when I found out she …

From KCRW Blog Contributor Nassir Nassirzadeh:
There’s an indescribable charm about experiencing the early engagements of a band or artist from different parts of the world with a motley crew of young college music program directors and their grown up and somewhat jaded adult versions in the music industry congregating in one small and smelly NYC bar or basement in the middle of daylight.

Every week we do a tally of the most played songs on Morning Becomes Eclectic (which you will see if you follow MBE on Twitter or Facebook!) and a curious one showed up on last week’s list.
It was a 2001 album by an artist named Outside, which Jason tends to favor as a music bed. One listen to the album and it’s easy to …

Crazy Good: Lucius Covers My Morning Jacket
I didn’t know much about the female-led indie pop quintet Lucius before coming across this cover a few weeks ago.
Then I stumbled across the band at ACL and was really impressed by their track “Until We Get There”.

It’s on their debut album “Wildewoman”, released nearly one year ago, and they put out the cover of My Morning Jacket’s …

With their third unnerving collaboration with film director David Fincher, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have fashioned a dizzying and thoroughly hypnotic trip for Fincher’s version of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling suburban nightmare Gone Girl.
In a wonderful in-depth interview with the Wall Street Journal, Reznor claims that Fincher asked him to think of the “really terrible music you hear in massage parlors” as a starting point and …

Local producer/DJ/allaroundraddude Diego Herrera wears a grip of hats. The dublab DJ is a lynchpin in Pharoahs, produces wavy House as Suzanne Kraft and is set to release a brand new heater of a 12″ under the name Dude Energy.
The 2nd release on producer Tornado Wallace’s Animals Dancing label, Dude Energy finds Herrera flexing slightly less ambient muscle and with overtly chuggy intention. The 3 …

“Hold Onto Now” was one of the highlights of that session and is one of the best tracks on “Fumes”.
And to celebrate the album — out October 28 on Asthmatic Kitty Records – we’ve got a special premiere: The lovely sisters …
