Live Video: Wussy

“It’s what turns the kids on,” guitarist and vocalist Chuck Cleaver said, defending a bit of questionable narrative during a recent in-studio. We’ve been fans of Wussy since their first LP, but this year’s Attica! is easily one of the year’s best. Even if the kid’s aren’t listening to it, we’re glad to see moreRead more...

Live Video: The Antlers

Whether it’s the goal or method of art to turn complex thought into pure emotion, The Antlers are masters of their craft. The Brooklyn band frequently finds impetus in heady conceits, like on 2009′s Hospice, for which vocalist and guitarist Peter Silberman compared an emotionally abusive romantic relationship to the interactions of a hospice workerRead more...

Live Video: Jessica Lea Mayfield

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve literally watched Jessica Lea Mayfield grow up before our very eyes. She’s been on our airwaves since she was a teenager, starting with her 2008 debut, With Blasphemy So Heartfelt, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Over the years, we’ve been lucky to have her perform onRead more...

Live Video: Mark Lanegan

Some singers can sing anything, and some of them practically do. Mark Lanegan has one of those voices that will stop you dead in your tracks no matter when or how you hear him. The former local boy (he’s lived in LA now probably longer than anywhere else) began a series of deep, dark soloRead more...

Live Video: Bobby Bare Jr.

“Should is a worthless word,” advises the always-wise Bobby Bare Jr. “The only time you use the word ‘should’ is when you’re talking about something that doesn’t exist.” On his seventh album, Undefeated, the Nashville artist clearly strives forward without any “shoulds” — laying himself, well, “bare” by writing about his recent divorce. (As heRead more...

Live Video: Chelsea Wolfe

With all Los Angeles’ sunny stereotypes, it’s easy to miss the darkness there for the light. But not Chelsea Wolfe. The SoCal singer-songwriter has carved a unique place in the music landscape with her epic “drone-metal-art-folk” style. On her recent third album, Pain Is Beauty, she takes a decidedly more electronic approach to her hauntingRead more...

Live Video: The Comettes

The local four-piece that calls “Earth” its hometown, The Comettes have honed the sound born in the 1980′s - that distorted, etherial, big-voiced rock - and made it their own here and now in 2014. Think: David Byrne, Lou Reed or even Pearl Jam if you slowed down the tape a bit. The band releasedRead more...
