john-tejada-signs-under-test

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 …

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 …

It is no secret that I have a soft spot for contemporary Scandinavian music.
If you happen to tune into KCRW on any Sunday morning when I host The Lab, you will be treated to at least one, but more likely several Nordic acts.
I am equally enamored with First Aid Kit’s tender folk lullabies as I am with Todd Terje’s iconic dusty disco tracks…or Lykke …

Twin Danger: Artist You Should Know

twin danger

The sound of Twin Danger can most aptly be described as smoldering.
It’s a witches brew of noir jazz and midnight blues that seasoned novelists would describe to color a scene oozing with sexual tension or touch of mystery inside a dimly lit nightclub.
Vanessa Bley, daughter of legendary pianist Paul Bley, fronts the outfit with silvery vocals, perfect cheek bones, and copious amounts of lady …

Tobias Jesso Jr. – “How Could You Babe”
I’ve been obsessed with this song since the first time I heard it.
When it first starts out, I always think it’s a song I’ve known since my childhood. Just another nostalgic piano ballad…but WAIT — it may start slowly but that just makes his howling with emotion later in the song all the better.
This song will haunt …
