Alt-J Live on KCRW: “Left Hand Free”

Posted September 10, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 427 views]

Since Alt-J made their live U.S. radio debut on KCRW just over two years ago, a LOT has changed for the band. They won the Mercury Prize in the UK that year and were pretty much catapulted to stardom.
We’ve been spinning the first two singles off their sophomore release, and were really excited to have them in the studio today to play the new …

Penthouse Penthouse Cover Sisqo’s “Thong Song”

Posted September 9, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 775 views]

Oh, to remember the summer of 2000.
The “Thong Song” was ubiquitous and, in a time where we were being bombarded by boy bands, it was a somewhat welcome — albeit random — pop sensation.
It was kinda funny, it seemed in good fun and it was pretty easy to learn all the words without much effort.
Now, all these years later, LA’s Penthouse Penthouse have put …

20 years on, New York dream pop outfit Blonde Redhead continues to boldly do whatever the Hell they want in their confoundingly delectable way.
Their newest album, “Barragan“, picks up where their gorgeous 2010 release “Penny Sparkle“ left off.
That is to say, they’re still finding new and intriguing ways to artfully explore a slow, gossamer version of a sound that has made household names of artists …

iLoveMakonnen: Artist You Should Know

Posted September 5, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 632 views]

Alright, I’ll admit it; the first time I heard “Club Goin Up On A Tuesday” by iLoveMakonnen a few weeks ago, I didn’t quite know what to make of it.
The beat by Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin with its whirring church organs and beatdown bass was undeniably on point, but Makonnen’s quirky delivery threw me for a loop.
Then, one night, having not heard heard …

The Black Madonna: Artist You Should Know

Posted September 4, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 946 views]

As aliases go, I can’t quite think of a better, more awesome name than The Black Madonna.
Evocative in a dozen different ways, it befits Chicago DJ/Producer Marea Stamper.
Apart from being that rarest of mythical creatures, “a woman DJ/producer” she also just actually happens to do it better than most (regardless of gender.) Her style rips through a whole spectrum of sounds from disco to techno to house with …

Four Songs You Should Hear Right Now: The Drums, Odesza, Robert Plant, Redinho

The Drums

The Drums – “Kiss Me Again”
The Drums have consistently released great music since they first came on our radar in 2009. They’ve always had a surf-pop vibe but, on their latest single, their love for bands like Joy Division comes through.
Singer Jonny Pierce has us hooked with the infectious “Kiss Me Again”. It will be on their forthcoming album “Encyclodpedia”, out later this month.
