LA’s own Fol Chen has been consistently releasing lo-fi dance pop on the Asthmatic Kitty label (led by musician Sufjan Stevens) since 2009 and their latest effort, “The False Alarms”, is their best yet.
They’re one of DJ and music librarian Eric J Lawrence’s favorite local bands and he says they “bring such diverse 80’s influences as Prince, Michael Jackson, Scritti Politti to the 21st …

Savvy fans filed in early at the Hammer Museum for last night’s Also I Like to Rock show. I’m pretty sure we all knew the secret, that this show was going to be something really special.
While you couldn’t see endless hordes of  girls donning “Slave Leia” costumes in the crowd like at certain other events happening in SoCal last weekend (I’m …

As far as I’m concerned, summer started this past Thursday night at The Hammer.
Last year my summer didn’t feel official until the first Also I Like to Rock concert was underway.  That was partially due to the bizarrely chilly start summer had, but it was also because there is something decidedly summer-ish about sitting in the Hammer Museum’s outdoor courtyard taking …

Hammer Museum Director Annie Philbin is Our Guest DJ!

Saturday night was the opening of the Hammer Museum’s latest exhibit, “All of This and Nothing,” and I got dizzy in “Demon Hill,” a contribution from LA artist Julian Hoeber. It was a reminder of how the museum, on the UCLA campus in Westwood, has thrived under Director Annie Philbin. Contemporary art, ideas and new “voices” are her specialty and that comes through in …

The Hammer Museum’s “Also I Like to Rock” series brought an incredible line up of great local bands to play in the courtyard throughout July and the last show of the series was particularly special. Ferraby Lionheart started things off with a short acoustic set, followed by the rollicking piano and guitar driven pop of Chasing Kings and headlined by KCRW faves Voxhaul Broadcast. …

The last night of the Hammer Museum’s “Also I Like to Rock” music series was a blast, with a series of extra special last minute surprises.
Ferraby Lionheart jumped on stage as the sun was setting for a short acoustic set of songs, including my current favorite “Harry and Bess.” For those who didn’t get enough of Ferraby, he’ll be playing a set tonight at …

Voxhaul Broadcast on KCRW, Live at the Hammer on Thursday

Posted July 20, 2010 by | 0 Comments | 2,978 views]

Voxhaul Broadcast are at a creative crossroads. The overlying theme of today’s Morning Becomes Eclectic debut is that they are a local band in the process of finding their identity – and making some pretty great music while they figure it out. Jason has been supporting them since earlier this year, spinning “Shoot the Breeze” and “Blackout Conversations,” among others. He points to the …
