Toro y Moi, aka Chaz Bundick, always seems to be pushing his efforts in new directions. While 2013’s Anything In Return saw the experimental artist placing his eggs into a pop structured basket, his debut album under the Les Sins moniker, Michael, went the other direction with it's house-y leaning vibes. Whatever wind fills his sails it’s always apparent that he is enjoying the process and with a new album coming out later this year he's flown the coop of his comfort zone once again to bring us it’s first single “Empty Nesters”...Read More
There are some things that happen with ease, and others that well, don't. Earlier this year, we hopped in the jeep and drove from the Northern California redwoods to the desert plains of Joshua Tree. To say that obstacles were thrown our way, would simply be an understatement...Read More
Moon Block Party will grace the Pomona Fairplex this Saturday with more than 20 top notch artists. Since the first Moon Block Party rocked the Pomona Arts Colony in 2011, it has been polishing its reputation through partnerships with the Pomona School of the Arts, and by setting up some of the most unique music experiences out there, which in today’s music scene is really saying something...Read More
There has been a slight change of plans... Ever since we touched down in Los Angeles this week, it appears that things have just been happening. Whether the flow be in a forwards or backwards motion (from my car breaking down to filming sessions at the Roxy), we seem to just go with it. A recent gust of wind blew some weekend 2 Coachella wristbands our way; call it the cosmic Californian skies or call it 'LA', we have yet to figure it out ourselves...Read More
It's that time of year again! Coachella Festival is technically (at least in the LA-kid's world) the big kick-off event to start the US summer festival season, and really what better way to start it all than in the middle of the California desert in the deliciously hazy, sweltering heat...Read More
I've met some pretty wonderful people on my travels, often in the strangest ways. One in particular was when I was desperately trying to make my way from the public transport nightmare that calls itself LA to Joshua Tree National Park to go camping with a friend...Read More
Ok, so it's not a new song, and they aren't recording new material. In fact some people could claim The Postal Service are really cashing in on their 2003 debut album 'Give Up'. Releasing a 10-year anniversary version? With 15 'rare' tracks and two new ones featuring Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley)? Yeah it's probably pushing it, but fans have lapped it up...Read More
Gardens & Villa stopped by 'Honey I'm Home' to perform a flawless session of "Orange Blossom."
As you do on YouTube channels, I stumbled across this band today. Unbeknownst to me, they are from Santa Barbara - where I happen to be currently residing. The band is comprised of five friends who bonded over their affinity for the West-Coast surroundings as passion for music...
My favorite band, Lord Huron have announced that they we will be touring with another one of my favorite bands, Alt-J. Both equally talented, these two bands are among the most buzzed about at the moment...Read More
If you have not already heard the praises of his name, meet Jake Bugg - one of my favorite new artists. He is still in his teens, yet possesses a badass, troubadour attitude of an outlaw 20 years his age. He has been known to speak the truth, something I find refreshing in the music business these days...
