VIDEO PREMIERE: THE UNCLAIMED “YOU NEVER COME”

September 30th, 2019

Frontman Shelley Ganz has been at the head of the Unclaimed since their debut for the legendary Moxie label in 1980, so you can trust that he's in complete command of this style. In an era when garage sometimes more means OC-style Posh Boy punk, the Unclaimed are working with more primordial stuff. "You Never Come" and two more are out next month on Groovie Records—get the EP here!

VIDEO PREMIERE: BRAINSTORY “BEAUTYFUL BEAUTI”

September 16th, 2019

L.A. RECORD alums Brainstory are back with "Beautyful Beauti"—a title that recalls "A Wonderful Why," from their long-ago first EP. It's a gently dazed and dreamy song with Brainstory's characteristically agile instrumentation and powerfully confident boom-bap drums that set this down somewhere right between Arthur Lee and De La Soul.
