Dave from Glass Animals

Glass Animals were just confirmed to play Coachella and it’s crazy to think just a year ago they were on KCRW’s SXSW showcase! To celebrate, we reached out to frontman Dave Bayley for our Fandom series.
“I was 15 when I first really lost my shit at a concert and danced like Prince on his first disco biscuit.
Joe (our drummer) and I had gone …

Museum of Love — the duo consisting of Pat Mahoney (drummer for LCD Soundsystem) and Dennis McNany (a.k.a. Jee Day) — made one of my favorite albums of 2014.
So, needless to say, I was very excited when they sent me a DJ mix they made to play on my show last night.
It’s an engrossing mix highlighting their love of house music, featuring modern classics …

Posted October 28, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,352 views]

Always under the excellent curatorial tutelage of Erol Alkan, UK based record label Phantasy has been around for 7 years but has hit it’s stride in the last 3 years.
Between the rise of wavy space cowboys Connan Mockasin and Daniel Avery, banging solo work by Chemical Brother Tom Rowlands, and Alkan’s own foray into producing original work…Phantasy is doing the damn thing.
And with the recent announcement of a full length …

Artist You Should Know: Museum of Love

Posted October 17, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 2,520 views]

While James Murphy was the heart, soul, and face of LCD Soundsystem, drummer Pat Mahoney was it’s backbone.
Pounding the skins with metronomic precision for the group’s entire seven year run, Mahoney was the anchor of LCD’s muscular rhythm section.
Three and a half years removed from LCD Soundsystem’s final show at Madison Square Garden (immortalized in the film Shut Up And Play The Hits), Pat …

I <3 New York Endless

Posted October 7, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,959 views]

Being from Philadelphia, I admittedly don’t have a lot of love in my heart for New York.
It’s in my DNA as a Philadelphian underdog to snarl at “The Big Apple” (which is the corniest nickname for city I’ve ever heard.)
Last time I checked apples don’t smell like pee, sell $15 packs of cigarettes or charge thousands of dollars in rent for a closet.
Still, I gotta respect …

All Star Musicians Celebrate Enigmatic Genius William Onyeabor at The Greek

Posted April 28, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 2,657 views]

Regardless of the infinitely confounding narrative behind Nigerian music producer  and international man of mystery William Onyeabor (or perhaps even because of it) KCRW and David Byrne’s indelible Luaka Bop label (who released the gloriously psychedelic “Who is William Onyeabor?” album which was incidentally named one of Time magazine’s Albums of the Year last year) are presenting an all star studded night of music beneath the stars …

P U L P Soundsystem

Posted March 7, 2013 by | 2 Comments | 2,003 views]

Pulp can do anything.
They can reunite after an extended hiatus…to headline Coachella and that festivals inaugural cruise, in the same year…
They can take a 12 year old demo, record it AND have James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) produce it…
They can take that recording and give it to attendees of a December concert in their hometown of Sheffield in the form of a digital download on a …

What is the greatest concert film of all time? Woodstock? Stop Making Sense? The Last Waltz?
While you figure out what the greatest concert film of all time is, I’ll tell you what the 2nd greatest concert film of all time is…Shut Up and Play the Hits.

1) What has former LCD Soundsystem front man and DFA Records label head James Murphy been up to lately?
Since you ask, Murphy will be starring alongside Tim Heidecker (who will be on  KCRW’s Guest DJ Project next week) and Eric Wareheim (of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) in a new film screening in competition at Sundance this year called The Comedy. James …
