VIDEO PREMIERE: THE HIGH CURBS “EMPTY BOTTLES”

March 9th, 2017

Chino's High Curbs put out a power-packed album (produced by Matt from the mighty Audacity, and recorded by Brian and Nadav from the Black Bananas!) for Burger and Sick City last summer, and now they've got a nervous and urgent video to match their nervous and urgent song "Empty Bottles." (As you see, they don't just mean booze bottles.) "Bottles" is a troubling lesson in what happens when you dare to confront the panda-industrial complex, and a reminder that sometimes things really are that black and white. They'll be heading to SXSW soon—tour dates and full credits below!

VIDEO PREMIERE: RACHEL MASON “SANDSTORM”

March 3rd, 2017

Prepare yourself for the haunting (even menacing?) video for Rachel Mason's "Sandstorm," a stand-out track from the Das Ram album released last year by Cleopatra/Practical Records. Mason has deep roots in L.A. and the kind of commanding personality and vision that makes for powerful performance art, and explains her mythic video thusly: “While 'Sandstorm's composition pre-dated the current Trump era, it has a foreboding sense of much of the chaos to come: 'I am gonna live in a sandstorm, I am gonna let the dust make me blind / This is just the end of the road I'm on, but this is just the start of the ride.'" Visit Mason here, and full credits for the video below:

February 22nd, 2017

Brian Jonestown Massacre are back with the monster Don't Get Lost album and a date at the Fonda to celebrate! Yes, they've got a song called "Throbbing Gristle" but there's kinship inspiration here from Suicide, This Heat, the first two Public Image albums and the choicest krautrock, too. Like so much of the BJM discography, this stuff connects right back to the original mystical source: they send, and you transcend, if you're doing it right. Wanna see (and hear and feel) for yourself? Get tickets here, or email us at rsvp@larecord.com subj MASSACRE, and we'll pick lucky people to go for free at random the Friday before the show!
