by Larry Hirshowitz

From Led Zeppelin to Laura Nyro and, of course, Ben E King, the 1960 Leiber + Stoller + Spector track “Spanish Harlem” is a classic.
King first released it in 1960 (his first hit away from The Drifters) and there have been over 150 recordings of the song.
But it’s particularly interesting to hear a Scottish singer-songwriter with an Italian-sounding name take on a song about …

It has been three years since Henry Wolfe’s last album, “Linda Vista“, and if I had to wait yet another month to hear new music by LA’s favorite recluse, I might have actually become proactive and called the man about it.
But, lucky for both, I didn’t have to resort to scare tactics — a new four-track EP (out 11/11) ceremoniously graced my inbox just …

Sure you can have more and more radio hits and fan favorites. You can tour the world over and over. But what could a bigger challenge be?
If bands that gain prominence singing in other languages are faced with the gut wrenching …

In 2010, a metaphysical interstellar spacecraft called Rainbow Disco Club docked in Tokyo’s Harumi Terminal in Tokyo Bay. The brainchild of intrepid and enterprising DJ dudes who believe in the power of the groove, Rainbow Disco Club was going to be a new kind of festival and a concerted effort to bring about a new wave of Japanese club life.
That ship flew into deep space with …

DeadTimes_zpsf5ef03ab

LA-based electronic-R&B outfit Dead Times seems right in line with where a lot of music is headed right now. Beats are big, but there are lots of different ways to serve them up.
Their recent single “Every Moment” is a sexy slow burner, but their brand new track “Better Off” is a joyful, “feel-good foot-stomper” that is more along the lines of a band like …

If you ever happen to catch my show on Saturday nights, you’re probably aware of my long-standing admiration for legendary UK DJ, half of ….Wizard’s Sleeve and Phantasy label boss Erol Alkan.
His influence on my ears is undeniable.
