John Talabot‘s mindblowing DJ Kicks compilation was not only one of the year’s most exciting mixtapes, it featured a number of notable tracks which, at the time, were unavailable and unreleased.
The Locked Groove rework of Pional’s “It’s All Over Now” was a highlight. Round’s “Glass“ was another.
Talabot’s Hivern Discs released a 12″ of Round tracks, which like most Hivern releases, are rare and highly sought after booty on Discogs.

alabama

I was incredibly excited to get an early listen to the new Alabama Shakes album.
When I first met them during their MBE session for us in 2012, I knew we we were witnessing something very special — something beyond hype, the “real deal” as they say. I knew ANYTHING was possible and they did not disappoint with their follow up.
Rather than rehash the same …

You never know quite what to expect with Father John Misty.
The last time he visited our studio, he took our portrait of David Lynch off the wall and brought it into the studio with him as a backdrop to his performance.
This time, there were less shenanigans, but the music exciting enough as he ran through live versions of his new songs (with the help …

KCRW DJ Chris Douridas has been spinning a singer named Nuela Charles, whose soulful vocals catch my ear every time he plays it.
I finally had to ask him, who is this artist??
Turns out, she’s based in Edmonton, Alberta and identifies as a  “Canadian, Swiss and Kenyan singer-songwriter”, calling all the countries home.
Chris says she reminds him of “what Etta James must have been like.”
It’s …

L.A. techno wizard John Tejada has released a number of remarkably lush albums and 12″s for Kompakt in the last few years.
Now, he’s released what is arguably his loveliest, most accomplished work.
The full length, “Signs Under Test” skitters and throbs with dreamy muted technological weariness and ecstatic hope in equal measure giving the album a sublimely human aspect.
Where mechanized funk generally tends to exist in a …

Friday Free For All: Aphex Twin/Tom Waits Mashup + Disclosure Remix

Eskmo – “Aphex Waits”
On the surface, Tom Waits and Aphex Twin would seem to very little in common.
While Waits is a gravelly voiced singer-songwriter whose style might best be described as leftfield interpretations of pre-war jazz and blues, Aphex Twin trades in futuristic experiments in electronics.
LA-based producer, Eskmo, manages to meld the seemingly disparate worlds together in a mash-up that defies expectations and manages …

Morning Becomes Eclectic host Jason Bentley sat down with the iconic guitarist to talk about his book “Jimmy Page”.
The artist tells us his goal was to “set the record straight” as some of the history of things he’s done “has become somewhat distorted”. It covers all of his musical incarnations, charting his progression from session musician, to his early start with the Yardbirds playing …
