Posted March 19, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 1,207 views]

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 …

Hotel Vegas

For many, the theme for  SXSW ’14 was the massive tipping point of huge corporate entities using even bigger pop stars to sell their products, pushing the 99% of artists out into the margins.
So, what better place to find the real goods than on those exact fringes of this fine TX city? Let’s start with:
BEST SXSW VENUE: Hotel Vegas. With one stage in the …

A little over a month ago, in a cryptically subtle but completely captivating manner Boards of Canada surreptitiously revealed their forthcoming Warp release, “Tomorrow’s Harvest“.
Coming on June 11th, it marks their first new work since 2005′s “The Campfire Headphase“.
After weeks of playing haunting snippets from a series of rare, barely labeled 12″s that came out on Record Store Day, BBC DJ Zane Lowe finally premiered their first new …

Yesterday started like this:
Me: (To the tall guy getting water) “Is there enough water in there for you? Do you need any more?”
Matt: “No- It’s all good. I think we’ll be fine”
Me: “Great. I’m Collin by the way. I’m with Morning Becomes Eclectic.”
MC: “Hi, I’m Matt. With, umm… Matt Costa.”

Posted February 20, 2013 by | 0 Comments | 1,421 views]

It can be a rare thing to have the interview portion of Morning Becomes Eclectic be just as entertaining as the artists performance but, then again, Eels frontman Mark Oliver Everett or “E” is a unique man.
It’s equally out of the ordinary for an artist to have their guitar strings attached directly to their hear while they play with every emotion all at once …

ra ra photo

When Ra Ra Riot released their second album “The Orchard” in 2010, there was a strong enough connection to their debut album “The Rhumb Line” that we could start to ease into a sort of comfort ability with the group. The orchestral, indie pop sound flanked by deep cellos and weeping violins were a welcomed departure from the sometimes indistinguishable dance music of the …

Toro Y Moi‘s latest offering “Anything In Return” had been steadily making it’s way into the hands of every single KCRW DJ before his live performance on Morning Becomes Eclectic.
So much so that it quickly became the number one most played album on our playlist for a few weeks now.

Calexico Live on KCRW – Splitter

Posted January 16, 2013 by | 1 Comment | 1,911 views]

From MBE Producer Ariana Morgenstern
One of my favorite things about being the producer of MBE for so many years is that I’ve met so many artists at varying points in their careers.  Then I have the pleasure of bringing them back when they have new material to share with our audience.  Calexico is one of those bands.
We were first introduced to Joey Burns and …
