L.A. RECORD is the Los Angeles area’s definitive music publication. Called “L.A.’s most formidable music magazine” by the Los Angeles Times, L.A. RECORD has covered every genre and generation of music (as well as art and film) possible since its start in 2005. It has continually been the first to report on and interview L.A. musicians who are on their way to worldwide acclaim and has been a completely independent publication since day one. (No Age, Flying Lotus, Cold War Kids, HEALTH and more all received their first print features if not first-ever features in L.A. RECORD.) L.A. RECORD offers many diverse options for advertisers of all types who would like to connect with our audience.
