Dan Croll by Larry Hirshowitz

This week’s installment of We’ve Got It Covered is a tiny bit of a stretch since it’s more of a re-working or re-imagining of a song than a straight cover.
Still though, on his debut visit to Morning Becomes Eclectic, the U.K. artist recounted the story of how he came to find “Hello My Baby” and actually work with the legendary African a capella group …

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

Posted March 19, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 1,200 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 …

Jetta Covers Banks’ “Waiting Game”

Posted March 6, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 746 views]

Aside from having terrible artist names for internet searches, Banks & Jetta have one more striking similarity that’s hard to deny.
Big voices.
Yes, they’re both female and yes they’re both young and relatively new comers, but those are happenstance. The pure power generated by Jetta and the restrained energy of Banks add two more to the growing list of young talent not looking to hide …

Lo-Fang by Larry Hirshowitz

Lo-Fang’s recent in studio performance was a bit of an eye-opener.
Matthew Hemerlein is a classically trained musician who’s cerebral approach to his music re-shapes normal acoustic and electronic elements.
It’s one part Andrew Bird, a little bit Emily Wells, lots of classical influence and a mix bag of sounds from his travels around the world where he wrote most of his debut album “Blue Film”
His …

Matt Costa Live On KCRW — “Ophelia”

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.”
Later on, the irony of Matt Costa having a bit of an identity crisis with …

Eels Live On KCRW: “Wonderful, Glorious”

Posted February 20, 2013 by | 0 Comments | 1,419 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 …

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.
Needless to say we were all just a little excited to welcome producer/ mastermind/ leading …

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 …
