VIDEO PREMIERE: DEATH VALLEY GIRLS “WEAR BLACK”

October 30th, 2019

Halloween must be the season when L.A.'s Death Valley Girls really come alive. Like the heroic Roky Erickson, they too have a bone-deep reverence for zombies, ghosts, aliens and the other fellow creepy creatures that brought to life blown-out black-and-white monster movies. And that's the other half of the cast of their new video for their Pandoras-meets-Scientists garage rock seether "Wear Black."

VIDEO PREMIERE: ROJAI “JUST A LIL BIT” (F. B. BRAVO)

October 23rd, 2019

Right off some late-nite music video show from a more analog time comes this smoky modern funk song by Rojai, half of previous L.A. RECORD funky featurees Kool Customer. It's sleek, it's slick, and it's a showcase for the unflagging potency of the classic fog machine, and it all comes together as the perfect environment for Rojai's request to spend "just a little bit" of time together.

VIDEO PREMIERE: TIJUANA PANTHERS “GENERATION SINGULAR”

October 21st, 2019

Much-loved locals and L.A. RECORD alums Tijuana Panthers put out their first full-length in too long this summer: Carpet Denim, breaking the long drought since 2015's Poster, although they did dispense snacks like the Ghost Food EP and drummer Phil Shaheen's anxious Devo-wave Ottofix EP in between. Carpet Denim finds them both refining and redefining their music, and the very Deadbeats-Eyes-Dangerhouse-y first-wave L.A. punk track "Generation Singular"—well, maybe first-and-a-half wave with much respect to Rhino 39—is a bracing example.
