Eels Cover Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love”

Eels by Larry Hirshowitz

Eels main man Mark Oliver Everett mostly lives in a muted space.
While he can come across as solemn if you’re being generous, he does have a sharp wit and the sort of self-deprecating humor that makes you think he’s doing it for the laughs.
Either way you slice it, he’s definitely not the kind of guy to wear salmon colored J.Crews, half rolled up the …

KCRW Exclusive: Stream Tijuana Panthers’ “NOBO”

Posted May 27, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 2,125 views]
Tijuana Panthers

Last week, KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad played a brand new track by the Long Beach, CA surf-rock trio Tijuana Panthers called “NOBO.”
On its surface, it’s a perfect lazy summer day stroll through vintage Southern California pop but beneath the low-fi buzz lay something a bit darker and distorted. Sort of a perfect euphemism for the city of Long Beach in general. With driving bass-line …

Ballin’ Jack — “Found A Child” (Monk One Re-Edit)

There’s a decent chance that you don’t know the ’70s jazz-rock sextet known as Ballin’ Jack, but I’d be willing to wager you’re familiar with the guitar riff from their song “Found A Child“.

It’s quite possibly the funkiest 8 second guitar loop ever committed to wax and years after its initial release, would become the foundation …

Nick Waterhouse Covers The Seeds’ “Pushin’ Too Hard”

nick

The Seeds‘ single “Pushin’ Too Hard“ was released in 1965 and although it didn’t see any time in the Billboard charts right away, it climbed to number 35 when it was re-released later that year.
I guess you could say “Pushin’ Too Hard” was a euphemism about timing.
The Seeds were Southern California through and through, ushering a new era of psych-rock and experimenting with sounds …
