THE BUTTERTONES: WE PLEAD THE FIFTH

March 23rd, 2017

The ever-so-stylish Buttertones recently signed with Innovative Leisure, and recorded their latest album, Gravedigging, with Jonny Bell at Jazzcats in Long Beach. The songs are full of romance, blood, guts, ghosts, surf, doom, and delight—it's like they crammed all their favorite movie plots into three minutes or less. Their record release show is Sat., Mar. 25, at the Bootleg. This interview by Daiana Feuer.

EMMYLOU HARRIS: TRUTH IS STILL THERE

September 15th, 2016

With a soul-stirring voice and wise, heartfelt lyrics, the dog-loving songwriter Emmylou Harris continues writing, performing, and using music to help the world as best she can. Her classic collaboration Trio (with Dolly Parton and Linda Rondstadt) has just been re-released with unheard songs, and oh my goodness, it’s as amazing as you can imagine.

SEX STAINS: WE WERE ALL SEX STAINS

September 2nd, 2016

Sharif Dumani, Allison Wolfe, Mecca Vazie Andrews, David Orlando, and Pachy Garcia came together from disparate corners of the artistic world—as well as the actual world—and out of chaos, they make so much sense. Influenced by 1970s post-punk with a collage-art approach to lyricism, Sex Stains is a fun, animalistic force for good, full of attitude courtesy of its vivacious front-ladies, and musically as infectious as something you might find on one of those mattresses on the street … but not as itchy. Their self-titled album is out now on Don Giovanni and their record release show is Sun., Sept. 4, at the Echo. This interview by Daiana Feuer.

GENEVA JACUZZI: BECAUSE IT’S ME

April 1st, 2016

Geneva Jacuzzi has long been an enigma, a musician and performance artist who delights in the unexpected. Literally every single performance she has ever done has been different. Whether she’s using a fax machine as an instrument or blow-up dolls as a backing band, on stage she embodies an alien, or a puppet that comes to life when you leave the room, or a monster that lurks in the TV, a ghost in the machine, an unflinching piece of live art. With Technophelia—her first album in five years, available now from Medical Records—coming on the heels of getting sober, Geneva Jacuzzi fought her way out of a dark place and, through music, found the best part of herself worth saving. She performs tonight, April 1, at Sleepless: The Music Center After Hours. This interview by Daiana Feuer.

TRACK PREMIERE: ANDREW RINEHART “GONE TO HELL”

November 5th, 2015

A somewhat recent transplant to Los Angeles, Andrew Rinehart soaked up a considerable amount of desert gloom during visits to the West Coast over the years and it leaches out in the song "Gone To Hell," which he describes as "a love letter to sociopaths everywhere," sarcastically speaking. "Gone To Hell" can be found on his new 15-track album Nothing/Everything, due out on Buddyhead Records on November 10. Andrew Rinehart's record release show is Tuesday, Nov. 17th, at Basic Flowers as part of his Nu & Approved series with Geneva Jacuzzi, Dent May, Tall Boys & Cnake.
