Live Review: Ricky Eat Acid with Kitty & Grant at The Sunset 11/14/16

Aside from the table topped with laptops, controllers, and a mixer, there was only one thing adorning the Sunset stage on Monday night, and that was a giant blow-up swan pool float (you can cop your own for a cool $25 over at Amazon).

Live Review: Little Big Show #16 with Låpsley, Aquilo & NAVVI 11/13/16

It’s been half a year since the last Little Big Show, which feels like a lifetime considering the streak the series has held in the last couple years.

Album Review: Sleigh Bells – Jessica Rabbit

Sleigh Bells have changed. I still remember the afternoon that my friend introduced me. “It’s like a pep rally for gladiators”, she said, laughing, pointing me to the self-titled EP, “their cover looks like Jimmy Buffett but their Myspace says they like Korn”.

Album Review: Ricky Eat Acid – Talk To You Soon

With his work as Ricky Eat Acid, Say Ray functions inside a sporadic group of bedroom production geniuses, whose works are as intentional and impactful as they are fleeting.
