WIN TICKETS TO LORD HURON + SHAKEY GRAVES + YOLA ON AUG. 4 AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL!

July 9th, 2019

The Hollywood Bowl is a perfect setting for Lord Huron’s distinct vocals and sweepingly intricate noir-pop textures. Shakey Graves has evolved from a campfire storyteller into a songwriter armed with a full band, and the rich instrumentation clouds around his lyrics like Broadway set designs. Yola’s new Dan Auerbach-produced album—her debut—showcases her electrified country and roots music. Want to go? We've got tickets to give away!

VIDEO PREMIERE: THE SHAKING HANDS “TAKE YOU”

June 28th, 2019

The Shaking Hands are an L.A. band with a very appropriate name—this is jittery stuff that'd fit well with the Urinals, the (early) Garden or Gary Wilson, who the Shaking Hands actually opened for at Non Plus Ultra. If you remember how the punk comps in the 80s used to put the hardcore on side A and the experimental stuff on side B ... Shaking Hands are definitely (and probably proudly) a B-side band.

VIDEO PREMIERE: def.sound “12TH AVE”

June 21st, 2019

The rose that grew from concrete, the vine grown from the desert: South Central soliloquist def.sound has built a career around lush, buoyant instrumentation and polysyllabic re-imagination of a life anchored in L.A. And what a unique life it’s been. A lifelong vegan born in a food desert, he’s well-versed in contradiction and in the work it takes to water oneself until fully grown. The song—from COLORED Disc 1ne, out July 23—is built around a Vine of Shiloh Dynasty singing and playing guitar, a recent-aughts reference too good to not mention here. (From apps to slaps—damn.) For all the rhapsodic, confessional bars in his oeuvre, this is the strongest return to his roots.
