VIDEO PREMIERE: PRATLEY “WOULDN’T”

October 16th, 2018

Pratley is the cheerfully iconoclastic L.A. duo of James Watson and Sam Wilkes—recently spotted with a very well reviewed solo LP on Leaving—and their "Wouldn't" is supremely and confidently discordant song that's basically guitar, drums, synth and white-hot sizzling id. Pratley plays Fri., Oct. 19, at the Troubadour with Parcelsget tickets here!—and "Wouldn't" is available on their self-titled full-length from last year.

VIDEO PREMIERE: SHANNON LAY “RECORDING 15”

October 15th, 2018

L.A. favorite Shannon Lay returns with this extremely fitting video for her "Recording 15," arguably the heart—or part of the heart—of her recent and excellent Living Water LP.
