Washed Out Paracosm Trailer

Ernest Greene aka Washed Out has announced Paracosm, the follow-up to 2011's Within and Without. Paracosm is all about imaginary worlds and escapism. Look up Paracosm. This sounds like a really interesting album, with over 50 instruments being used, including vintage keyboards along with the sounds of children and birds, all while remaining catchy with a daytime feel. Subpop... "No, he hasn’t thrown away his computer or synths, but Greene […]

Shoegaze From Switzerland: Last Leaf Down

Last Leaf Down is a band that has gone through quite a contrasting evolution since their inception in 2003. They started out as a melancholic doom metal band being influenced by bands like Katatonia. Now it sounds like Slowdive has slowly taken the over that position which can be heard on their latest two tracks "The Thought That I Saw You" and "Fake Lights In The Sky." These are two […]

The Capsules

I first played The Capsules back in 2008 when I had Big Sonic Heaven on Indie 103.1 here in L.A. I wasn't even sure if they were still together since we haven't heard from them since their 2009 release of Long Distance Dedication. Apparently they are because they just released their latest album, Northern Lights And Southern Skies, this past January. The band has been together since 2002 and is […]

How ironic! The man responsible for thee loudest show I've ever been to in my life (My Bloody Valentine @ Santa Monica Civic Center on October 1st & 2nd of 2008) has logged a complaint about a bar in his neighborhood that could make too much noise.

The Breeders 20th Anniversary Reissue And Tour

Wow! I can't believe it sometimes. How did Last Splash by The Breeders get to be 20 years old so fast? I remember driving around in my black Volkswagen GTI listening to that on my pull-out Alpine stereo. Do you remember those? It wasn't just the faceplate that came off, it was the whole frickin' stereo and then you had to carrying it around with you. Luckily Case Logic made […]

The Story Of 4AD

Ahhh! My favorite record label of all-time! 4AD. I used to go to the record store weekly to buy new releases and my first question to the record store owner/clerk (whom knew me by name) was, "Anything new on 4AD this week?" Or, I already knew something new was coming out and I was there waiting for them to unpack their deliveries. Keep in-mind, this was all pre-internet and cellphone […]
